How to unlock all craftable weapons in Genshin Impact's Inazuma

Inazuma releases five new craftable weapons, with one for each weapon type. But how exactly do you unlock these weapons and forge them in the Blacksmith?


Update 2.0 for Genshin Impact rewards us with five new craftable weapons that you can use for your characters once you get to the Inazuma Region. However, these craftable weapons are not automatically unlocked and you need to go through multiple quests to unlock all 4-star craftable weapons. Below is a guide that you can use to get all of the blueprints required for each weapon.

How to unlock the Hakushin Ring Catalyst

Finishing the Sacred Sakura Cleansing Ritual quest gives you the blueprint for Hakushin Ring.

The Hakushin Ring is a new 4-star craftable Catalyst weapon that you can unlock once you finish the world quest called "Sacred Sakura Cleansing Ritual". You can only begin the Yougou Cleansing Quest or the Sacred Sakura Cleansing Ritual Quest. Check out my full walkthrough for the quest here. After completing the Sacred Sakura Cleansing Ritual Quest, you will receive an item called "Mask of Memories".

Sacred Sakura Cleansing Ritual consists of five different sidequests that you need to complete before you can get the Mask of Memories reward:

  1. A Strange Story in Konda
  2. Sacrificial Offering
  3. Cleansing Defilement
  4. Hayashi of Tanuki in the Forest
  5. Yougou Cleansing

After getting the Mask of Memories item, you can use the item in your inventory to unlock the Hakushin Ring catalyst weapon.

The Hakushin Ring gives you the Sakura Saiguu effect. The character who is using the Hakushin Ring will trigger an Electro reaction. The other characters who triggered the elemental reaction will have a 10% elemental damage bonus. The effect can last 6 seconds. You can craft the weapon using the following materials:

  • 1 Northlander Catalyst Billet
  • 50 Amethyst Lump
  • 50 White Iron Chunk
  • 500 Mora
  • Mask of Memories to unlock the weapon.

How to unlock the Katsuragikiri Nagamasa Claymore

Opening the Cage on Jinren Island

The key to the cage is at the very top of the tree on Jinren Island.

Kill the enemies and you will find that a cage needs a key to open. You can find the key on top of the tree just south of the cage. Go back to the cage and save the unnamed man. He will tell you to go to a spot that is safer so he can properly talk to you.

Go to the place and he will introduce himself as Saimon Jirou. He will tell you of a treasure that needs four slates to open. This part is where the Sacred Sakura Cleansing Ritual collides with this questline. You need to talk to the Shrine Maiden near the Konda Village to start the "A Strange Story in Konda" quest. Continue the quest until you unlock the well and electro barrier.

Find the 1st Stone Slate

You have to finish the "A Strange Story in Konda" quest to gain access to this area.

The second stone slate can be found underneath a small tent.

The second stone slate can be found at the beach near the Kamisato Estate. Go to the end of the beach, near the Waverider waypoint. You will find a bonfire and an adventurer's tent. Investigate the small tent to find the second stone slate.

Solving the Electro Cube Puzzle

Logging out of the game will reset the position of the Electro cubes.

Before you can get the 3rd and 4th Stone Slate, you need to complete the Sacrificial Offering and Cleansing Defilement quest. Go to the Araumi area, where you need to cleanse and break the barrier near the Sakura Tree. Unlock the mechanism near the tree to reveal three kitsune earth statues. Use your memento lens on each one of them to reveal three buttons.

Press the buttons to reveal the Araumi barrier. After cleansing the Araumi barrier, go to the left side and you will find five Electro cubes. Attacking the cubes will make them change directions. Follow the sequence above to solve the puzzle and unlock a Precious Chest. Go to the back part, face the middle cube whose glowing side, and follow the steps below.

  1. Activate the southwest cube using the Electro element once.

The third stone slate is next to the metal gate in Araumi.

Go down the hole on the floor and you will notice that it is flooded with water. You can climb the ledges of the wall to regain your stamina. Swim all the way to the end of the hall and you will notice a metal gate. Near the gate is a mound of dirt. Investigate the dirt to find the 3rd Stone Slate. You will also notice another Electro cube puzzle. Simply hit the middle cube twice with the Electro element to solve the puzzle and unlock a Precious chest.

Find the 4th Stone Slate

The fourth stone slate can be found on the urn inside the shipwreck.

Solving the Electro cube puzzle will make the water level go down. Open the gate and activate the mechanism at the bottom level. Follow this path and keep heading north until you reach the waypoint. Activate this waypoint and you will notice a shipwreck in the area. Investigate the broken urn near the ship to find the last stone slate needed for the quest.

Find the 5th Stone Slate

Jirou will ask you to look for the 5th stone slate but there is no 5th stone slate.

Report back to Saimon Jirou in Jinren Island and he will tell you that you need to find the fifth stone slate. Teleport to Araumi waypoint and investigate the area. After finding nothing, go back to Jirou in the Jinren Island only to find him gone. Look for him on the island and you will notice that he is locked up by Nobushi enemies again. Defeat the enemies and talk to Jirou. He will give you the Treasury Key.

Opening the Treasury

You can jump off the platform to restart the puzzle.

Use the "Treasury" key on the locked metal door on the floor. Place the four stone slates on the missing stone slabs near the door. After placing the four stone slabs, follow the sequence above to light up all the stones at once. Solving this puzzle will open the stone door. Open the chest in the middle of the room. Go back to the Konda Village and escort Jirou back to his father.

Solving the 2nd Sphere Puzzle

You can always hit the main pillar to check your progress.

You can find the main pillar in the middle of the cliff. Just like before, this pillar is glowing and emits a faint light from the ball at its center. You will also find a water sphere barrier in the middle of the area.

Go straight to the area protected by the Electro barrier to unlock it and start the mechanism beside it.

Electro Cube Puzzle

There is a Seelie here that you can follow while getting the Warding stone.

If you use your Elemental Sight, it will lead you further down the stairs. You will see that it leads you to a locked area on the floor. On the other end of the hallway, you will find enemies and an Electro puzzle hiding behind them. Defeat the enemies and hit the electro cubes until all cubes have the same amount of petals. This will unlock the floor gate and at the end of the hall, you can get the Warding Stone.

Fixing the 2nd Ward

You can use the thunder sakura bough to quickly get out of the cave and return to the Ward.
