Best Arataki Itto Genshin Impact Build: Artifacts, Weapons, More

Arataki Itto in Inazuma

The best Genshin Impact Arataki Itto build utilizes Artifacts that boost his Geo damage and DPS, while his best claymore gives him huge amounts of lethality on the battlefield. 

Genshin Impact’s Arataki Ittto banner was first introduced in the 2.3 update, which arrived in November 2021. Arataki Itto is a 5-star Geo character who wields a deadly claymore and uses Oni-based abilities to strike fear into his enemies. Despite his demonic look, Itto is known for his kindness and competitive nature. 

When he’s not busy competing against his rival, Kujou Sara, Arataki Itto can be found helping out Inazuma’s locals. The region is home to plenty of dangerous enemies, so having the best Arataki Itto build will help you eliminate the game’s threats with ease.

This is especially true if you use the best Genshin Impact weapons, Artifacts, and team comps. If you’re looking to pull Arataki Itto on his current rerun banner, we have everything you need to know.

Arataki Itto abilities in Genshin Impact

  • Normal Attack: Itto performs up to four claymore strikes. When the second and fourth strike, Itto will gain one or two stacks of Superlative Superstrength. Maximum five stacks.
  • Charged Attack: Itto unleashes a series of Arataki Kesagiri slashes without consuming stamina. Instead, each Arataki Kesagiri slash consumes one stack of Superlative Superstrength. When the final stack is consumed, Itto delivers a powerful final slash. If no stacks of Superlative Superstrength are available, Itto will perform a single Saichimonji Slash.
  • Plunging Attack: Itto plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.

Arataki Itto Elemental Skill: Masatsu Zetsugi – Akaushi Burst!

Itto hurls out a raging bull that deals Geo damage to enemies hit. Once the bull has finished charging, it will stay on the battlefield and taunt nearby enemies. When Ushi hits opponents, Itto gains one stack of Superlative Superstrength. 

Whenever Ushi takes damage, Itto gains one stack of Superlative Superstrength, which can occur every two seconds. 

If Ushi’s HP gets reduced to zero or the ability’s duration ends, the bull will leave combat and grant Itto another stack of Superlative Superstrength. 

Arataki Itto Elemental Burst: Royal Descent – Behold, Itto the Evil!

Itto lets out his inner Raging Oni King, wielding his Oni king’s Kanabou in battle. When active, Itto unleashes a devastating flurry of Geo hits that deal damage based on his DEF. During this state, Itto also gains increased attack speed and resistances. The first and third hit of his attack combo will each grant Itto a stack of Superlative Superstrength. 

Arataki Itto Constellations

If you’re lucky enough to unlock multiple copies of Arataki Itto, then you’ll have access to some of his powerful constellation buffs.

  • Level 1 – Stay a While and Listen Up: After using Royal Descent: Behold, Itto the Evil!, Arataki Itto gains two stacks of Superlative Superstrength. After one second, Itto will gain one stack of Superlative Superstrength every 0.5 seconds for 1.5 seconds. 
  • Level 2 – Gather ‘Round’, It’s a Brawl!: After using Royal Descent: Behold, Itto the Evil!, each party member whose Element is Geo will decrease that skill’s cooldown by 1.5 seconds and restore six Energy to Arataki Itto.  
  • Level 3 – Horns Lowered, Coming Through: Increase the level of Masatsu Zetsugi: Akaushi Burst! by three. 
  • Level 4 – Jailhouse Bread and Butter: When the Raging Oni King state caused by Royal Descent: Behold, Itto the Evil ends, all nearby party members gain 20% defense and 20% attack for ten seconds. 
  • Level 5 – 10 Years of Hanamizaka  Fame: Increase the level of Royal Descent: Behold, Itto the Evil! by three. Maximum upgrade is 15.
  • Level 6 – Arataki Itto Present!: Arataki Itto’s charged attacks deal +70% crit damage. Additionally, when he uses Arataki Kesagiri, he has a 50% chance to not consume stacks of Superlative Superstrength. 

Best Arataki Itto Artifacts in Genshin Impact

The best Arataki Itto build uses the Husk of Opulent Dreams set, which increases his defense by 30%, while also giving him stacks of Curiosity. This passive can stack up to four times, with each stack providing a 6% defense and 6%  Geo damage bonus

When you combine this added damage/defense buff with the stacks from Superlative Superstrength, you have a perfect DPS set. This is particularly true given that Itto’s Elemental Burst actively deals more damage based on his overall defense. 

Not only does Husk of Opulent Dreams maximize Itto’s DPS, but it also makes him incredibly tanky, which ensures you stay healthy during the fiercest of fights. As Itto’s abilities are all tailored around dealing huge amounts of Geo damage, having a set that directly boosts his defense and attack is a must for any Genshin Impact player.  

Artifact Set Bonuses

Husk of Opulent Dreams

2-piece set bonus: DEF +30%.4-piece set bonus: A character equipped with this Artifact set will obtain the Curiosity effect in the following conditions: When on the field, the character gains 1 stack after hitting an opponent with a Geo attack, triggering a maximum of once every 0.3s. When off the field, the character gains 1 stack every 3s. Curiosity can stack up to 4 times, each providing 6% DEF and a 6% Geo DMG Bonus. When 6 seconds pass without gaining a Curiosity stack, 1 stack is lost.
Archaic Petra Artifact set Genshin Impact

2-piece set bonus: Geo DMG Bonus +15%.4-piece set bonus: Upon obtaining an Elemental Shard created through a Crystallize Reaction, all party members gain 35% DMG Bonus for that particular element for 10s. Only one form of Elemental DMG Bonus can be gained in this manner at any one time.


Best Arataki Itto weapon in Genshin Impact

The best Arataki Itto claymore is the Redhorn Stonethresher. This upcoming 5-star weapon increases Itto’s defense by 28%, while normal and charged attack damage is further enhanced by 40% of Itto’s defense. 

This makes it particularly potent on Itto as the Husk of Opulent Dreams Artifact set, which also bolsters the Oni’s defense and DPS, making this weapon hit even harder. If you haven’t managed to unlock the Redhorn Stonethresher, then the Whiteblind is another great option. 

This 4-star claymore increases Itto’s damage and defense by 6% for six seconds whenever he strikes an enemy. Due to the hyper-aggressive nature of the gang leader’s kit, you’ll be constantly buffing yourself when facing any pesky opponents. 

Weapon Details
Redhorn Stonethresher Claymore Genshin ImpactRedhorn Stonethresher Def is increased by 28%. Normal and Charged Attack DMG is increased by 40% of DEF.
Whiteblind Claymore Genshin ImpactWhiteblind On hit, Normal or Charged Attacks increase ATK and DEF by 6% for 6s. Max 4 stacks (24% total). Can only occur once every 0.5s.

Best Arataki Itto team comp

The best Arataki Itto team comp utilizes ZhongliAlbedo, and Bennett. Zhongli is a must for most meta teams in Genshin Impact, but especially in this comp. The double Geo resonance will increase Itto’s damage by 15% and decrease enemy Geo resistance by 20% whenever he is protected by a shield. 

Adding even more Geo damage to this comp is Albedo. His Elemental Skill will consistently deal AoE damage whenever his allies take damage, while his Elemental Burst can wipe out huge amounts of grouped units, especially when Zhongli locks them in place with Dominus Lapidis.

Bennett, Genshin Impact’s meta support, rounds out the comp. If Arataki Itto’s DPS wasn’t tantalizing enough, further damage buffs from Bennett’s ult make this comp even more promising. 

When a character’s health within Bennett’s ultimate is higher than 70%, they gain an attack bonus based on his base attack. Should you find yourself taking damage, Bennett’s Burst can also heal his allies. It’s certainly not hard to see why the boy wonder is a staple in most meta comps.

You could also replace Bennett with Gorou if you wish to have a Mono Geo team for both damage and energy regeneration.
