Sumeru brought a plethora of new content to Genshin Impact. A stunning expansion to Genshin’s map, the arrival of the first playable Dendro characters, challenging new foes to face, and powerful equipment for players to utilize are among the many additions that arrived with the Version 3.0 update.

One five-star piece of equipment that was released with the Sumeru update is the Hunter’s Path Bow. This weapon is described as a “gilded bow” that “was made using precious white branches.”

It has also taken down “countless wicked beasts infiltrating the woods.”

Hunter’s Path Bow was specifically designed for the five-star Dendro character Tighnari, but is a powerful weapon sure to work on a wide variety of bow characters. This bow is also an excellent choice for four-star Dendro character Collei.

Its powerful abilities make it one of the better bows in Genshin. It will suit most bow characters quite well, especially those who regularly rely on charged attack damage and high elemental mastery. Thus, players looking for a powerful bow should work towards attaining the Hunter’s Path Bow.

How to get the Hunter’s Path Bow

The Hunter’s Path Bow will be a featured weapon with an increased drop rate on the “Epitome Invocation” Weapon Event Wish banner from Aug. 24 to Sept. 9. Players should wish on the banner during this timeframe if they hope to obtain this five-star bow.

After the Hunter’s Path Bow duration as a featured five-star weapon ends, it will be unattainable until it has another run as a featured weapon with an increased drop rate.
