Who is Razor?
“Wolvendom guy! Looks a little on the feral side… doesn’t talk much… but he’s alright! We both love eating meat, so we got that in common. I sometimes cook some meat for him, and he teaches me how wolves communicate in return. Haha! You should join us next time!”
— Bennett Voice line about Razor
Razor is a boy with unknown origins who currently resides in Wolvendom. This Claymore-wielding Electro user is brought up by the Wolf of the North, Andrius, and has several scars to show for his rough life with the pack.
After meeting Varka, the Grand Master of Knights of Favonius, Razor was put under the supervision of Lisa, who taught him the use of his Electro vision.
How To Unlock Razor in Genshin Impact
As Razor is a 4-star character, he isn’t limited to a specific time and can be gotten by wishing on banners. There are a bunch of methods you can get Razor:
Wishing on Standard Banner
By wishing on the Standard Banner Wanderlust Invocation players have a chance to get Razor out of multiple 4-stars.
Wishing on Masterless Starglitter
You can occasionally get Razor from Paimon’s store by spending Masterless Starglitter.
He is often featured as a 4-star character in limited-time banners, and chances to obtain him are boosted.
Razor Main Abilities
Razor’s Normal attacks can perform up to 4 consecutive strikes with his claymore. He can use up stamina to perform spinning attacks against opponents. He can also perform an aerial plunging attack dealing AoE damage.
Claw and Thunder
Pressing Razor’s Elemental Skill briefly will deal Electro DMG to opponents near him and also give Razor an Electro Sigil. Razor can collect up to 3 Electro Sigils. Holding the Elemental Skill unleashes the Electro Sigils collected and deals strong AoE Electro DMG to enemies.
Razor’s Elemental Burst summons the Wolf Within, which will fight alongside Razor for the skill’s duration. The Wolf Within increases Razor’s ATK SPD, Electro RES, and deals Electro DMG.
Note that the skill is only effective as long as Razor is on the field.
