With the release of Genshin Impact 2.7 titled “Hidden Dreams in the Depths,” players were introduced to the new five-star Hydro character, Yelan. She is a bow-user, and it is common for Genshin Impact to also release a new 5-star weapon that suits the new champion’s skill kit. However, in this update, two new weapons were added to the game: (1) the Aqua Simulacra and (2) the Fading Twilight.
For today’s article, we’re featuring these two new Genshin Impact weapons, their description, and their special ability.
Aqua Simulacra (5-Star Weapon)
- Base ATK (Level 1 – 90): 44 – 542
- 2nd Stat Type: CRIT DMG
- 2nd Stat (Level 1 – 90): 19.2% – 88.2%
Weapon Ability: The Cleansing Form
The one who holds this weapon gets an increase of 16%/20%/24%/28%/32% on her HP. When there are opponents nearby, the damage dealt by the wielder of this weapon also increases by 20%/25%/30%/35%/40%. This ability will take effect whether the character is on-field or not.
This longbow’s color is unpredictable. And under the light, it takes on a lustrous watery blue.
Fading Twilight (4-Star Weapon)
- Base ATK (Level 1 – 90): 44 – 565
- 2nd Stat Type: Energy Recharge

Weapon Ability: Radiance of the Deeps
This weapon has three states: Evengleam, Afterglow, and Dawnblaze. The damage dealt by this weapon will increase by 6%/10%/14%, respectively. When the attacks hit opponents, the weapon will switch to the next state. The weapon can change states once every 7 seconds. The character who equips this weapon can still trigger the state switch while not on the field.
This is a precious bow which is made of platinum, which is inlaid with an orb that shimmers with the light of eventide.
Aqua Simulacra and Fading Twilight are both weapons players can equip for the new 5-star character, Yelan. Players can pull these two new weapons in the latest weapon banner. Just make sure to update Genshin Impact on your gaming PC.
