Genshin Impact continues to introduce exciting content with each update, and version 4.1 is no exception. One of the highlights of this update is the Ballad of the Boundless Blue Catalyst. As a free 4-star weapon, it becomes accessible to players through the main event of this patch. In this article, we'll explore the stats, effects, how to obtain it, and its release date, ensuring you're well-prepared to make the most of this event-exclusive weapon.

Ballad of the Boundless Blue Catalyst Stats

At Level 1, the Ballad of the Boundless Blue offers 44 ATK and 6.7% Energy Recharge. However, as you ascend it to Level 90, these stats increase significantly to 565 ATK and 30.6% Energy Recharge. While these stats may appear standard, it's the weapon's unique effect that makes it intriguing.

The catalyst's effect reads as follows: "Within 6 seconds after Normal or Charged Attacks hit an opponent, Normal Attack DMG will be increased by 8/10/12/14/16%, and Charged Attack DMG will be increased by 6/7.5/9/10.5/12%. Max 3 stacks. Can occur once every 0.3 seconds." Each Refinement Level adds 2% to its Normal Attack DMG buff and 1.5% to its Charged Attack DMG buff. To enhance the weapon's Refinement Level, you'll need to use a Dandelion Bookmark.

How to Obtain Ballad of the Boundless Blue

The Ballad of the Boundless Blue becomes available through the Waterborne Poetry event in Genshin Impact 4.1. This event is a one-time occurrence, meaning that if you wish to obtain this free catalyst, you must participate and meet the event's criteria during this specific period. Past event-exclusive weapons have not made a return, so missing out on this opportunity might result in losing access to the catalyst and its Refinement Materials permanently.

Ascension Materials

Maxing out the Ballad of the Boundless Blue Catalyst requires specific Ascension Materials. Here's a list of what you'll need:

  • 3x Boreal Wolf's Milk Tooth

  • 9x Boreal Wolf's Cracked Tooth

  • 9x Boreal Wolf's Broken Fang

  • 4x Boreal Wolf's Nostalgia

  • 15x Fragile Bone Shard

  • 18x Sturdy Bone Shard

  • 27x Fossilized Bone Shard

  • 10x Treasure Hoarder Insignia

  • 15x Silver Raven Insignia

  • 18x Golden Raven Insignia

  • 150,000 Mora (excluding the Mora used for leveling up the Catalyst)

Fortunately, obtaining these materials should be relatively straightforward. For example, the Boreal Wolf's items can be acquired from Cecilia Garden on specific days, and defeating Vishaps yields the Bone Shards. As for the Insignias, they can be collected from defeated Treasure Hoarders.

Release Date

The Ballad of the Boundless Blue Catalyst is set to make its debut in Genshin Impact's Version 4.1, scheduled for release on 27 September 2023. This eagerly awaited version promises a plethora of new content, and this unique Catalyst is just one of the exciting additions awaiting players.
