published

Here is our Razor Build where you can find the best weapons and artifacts for the 4-star Electro Claymore user in Genshin Impact.

Razor is a 4-star Electro claymore user in Genshin Impact. Razor was abandoned as a child and brought in by Andrius, the Wolf of the North, who nurtured him with his wolf pack in Wolvendom. He has slowly begun to integrate with humans again after an accidental encounter with Varka, the current Grand Master of the Knights of Favonius, and the Knight of Boreas.

Lightening Fang (Elemental Burst)

Summons the Wolf Within which deals Electro DMG to all nearby opponents. This clears all of Razor’s Electro Sigils, which will be converted into elemental energy for him. The Wolf Within will fight alongside Razor for the skill’s duration.

The Wolf Within

This was our Genshin Impact Razor Best Build Guide. Start every attack using the press form of Claw and Thunder when facing Razor. Switch to Razor’s standard attack combo after landing a hit, but dash right before the last hit. The final strike in the four strikes combo is slow and doesn’t do much damage; dash to cancel the animation and resume the standard attack combo. After two cycles of conventional attacks, you should be able to use Claw and Thunder to attack.
