What is the Best Catalyst Weapon for Scaramouche in Genshin Impact?

genshin impact wanderer best weapon catalyst scaramouche

As many have predicted since Scaramouche first appeared in Genshin Impact Version 1.1, Wanderer is a Catalyst user who should fill the DPS niche in your party. You can also, of course, use him exclusively for exploration since his Hanega Talent is so useful. But for those who want to main Wanderer, here are some of the best weapons you can get for him.

Tulaytullah’s Remembrance is Obviously His Best in Slot

As his signature weapon, of course Tulaytullah’s Remembrance is the best Catalyst for Wanderer (Scaramouche). Its main stat is Crit DMG (which pairs well with how Wanderer’s Crit Rate goes up per Ascension). Since Wanderer’s Elemental Skill has a short CD, you can take advantage of its massive Normal Attack DMG boost. At the maximum, Wanderer can enjoy a whopping 48% ATK bonus. If you have the funds and you plan on using Wanderer a lot, you should definitely consider getting Tulaytullah’s Remembrance while you can.

Skyward Atlas is Good, but Your Artifacts Need to be Good Too

The Skyward Atlas is not exactly a budget option, but the chances of getting it are higher than getting the Tulaytullah’s Remembrance due to the fact that it is a permanent fixture in the banners. Its main stat is ATK, which is fine because Wanderer is like Xiao in terms of being a solo Anemo DPS. Skyward Atlas naturally boosts his Elemental DMG, and every 30 seconds, there is the chance that it will deal an extra 160% of your ATK. Incidentally, this is the weapon I am choosing to run my Wanderer with.

Kagura’s Verity is the Slap Stick Option

Frankly, Kagura’s Verity is fantastic if you do not care about skills. It has an insanely high base ATK and its main stat is Crit DMG, just like most of the other catalysts on this list. Because Wanderer’s Skill still uses his Normal and Charged Attack, you will not get the Elemental Skill bonus from Kagura’s Verity’s skill. However, you can still get a 12% Elemental DMG bonus when you get 3 stacks. Since you get a stack every time you use your Skill, and Wanderer’s Skill CD is fairly short, you can consistently obtain the Kagura Dance effect.

Blackcliff Agate is a Great Budget Option

Conversely, for those who do not have the Primogems or money to go ham on the banners, you can use the Blackcliff Agate. This Catalyst has Crit DMG as its main stat, just like Tulaytullah’s Remembrance. As well, you can purchase it from the Starglitter Exchange for free. However, as of the time of writing, the Blackcliff Agate Catalyst is not available in Genshin Impact, so if you missed the weapon while it was in the shop, your Wanderer (Scaramouche) will have to wait. The Blackcliff Agate only gives Wanderer an ATK boost after he defeats an enemy, which makes it more useful for clearing out mobs than against a boss. Of course, if you don’t care about skills, you can also enjoy Blackcliff Agate for its Crit DMG.

Mappa Mare is Good For Swirl DPS

Like Xiao, Wanderer is a DPS who mostly specializes in flat Anemo DMG. He is not like Sucrose or Kazuha, who rely on Swirling other elements for damage output. However, that does not mean you cannot build Wanderer like those two. Mappa Mare is a good choice if you want to use Wanderer as a main DPS in a team like the National comp (Bennett, Xingqiu, Xiangling). He can get a maximum 16% Elemental DMG bonus whenever he triggers a reaction, and it has an Elemental Mastery main stat for some good Swirl.

There are some other weapons that you can use for Wanderer depending on what you have and who you run him with. If you always run a shielder, Memory of Dust is good. The Widsith, Dodoco Tales, Solar Pearl, and Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds are fine choices as well. While this article focused on passives, you can also choose based on the base ATK and main stat. The Widsith, for example, is fantastic, especially if you have it at R5. Choose your catalyst according to how you want to use Wanderer, and who you want to run him with.

Genshin Impact is readily available for PS4, PS5, Windows PC, and mobile devices. Wanderer, Faruzan, Itto, the Tulaytullah’s Remembrance catalyst, and the Redhorn Stonethresher claymore are available in the Genshin Impact gacha until December 27, 2022.
