Genshin Impact Cinnabar Spindle: How to Get, Stats & Ascension Materials

Genshin Impact update 2.3 introduced players to a variety of weapons to acquire and learn to master. The Cinnabar Spindle is one such weapon, however, it can be acquired for free by participating in the update's limited-time event.

In this guide, we'll detail everything you need to know about the Cinnabar Rocket, its stats, ascension materials, and how to get the weapon.

What is Cinnabar Brooch?

The Cinnabar Spindle is a 4-star sword that became available in the latest Genshin Impact 2.3 update. According to its official description, the Cinnabar Rocket is created "from materials that do not belong to this world".

Cinnabar Rocket Stats & Abilities

  • Scarcity: 4 stars
  • ATQ41-454
  • Secondary statistics: 15% – 69.0% FED

The weapon's passive (special ability), Spotless Heart, will see the elemental skill DMG increase by 40% of the wearer's DEF stats. This effect activates every 1,5 seconds with a 0,1 second cooldown after Elemental Skill DMG has been used.

As the weapon requires Alkahest as a refinement material, elemental skill DMG can see an increase of up to 80% in DEF stats once the refinement level reaches 5.

Alkahest can be redeemed through the Event Store with Snowstrider Emblems or by earning them by completing various challenges during the event.

The weapon can be best used in Albedo's hands largely due to his incredible elemental skill, making him the perfect sub-DPS or Burst Carry party member.

Additionally, Albedo is the only current character in Genshin to wield a sword while boosting DEF stats.
