When is it worth it to pull on the Weapon Banner?




This question is for anyone, whether you're F2P, a dolphin, or a whale.

So I know that some characters become god-tier when they're using their signature weapon. Take SoH on Hu Tao, PJWS on Xiao, and Engulfing Lightning on Raiden as examples.
But what about the others, the weapon banners that get less attention like Freedom-Sworn for Kazuha?
I do realize that most weapons make the characters OP (Amos-Ganyu, Thundering Pulse-Yoimiya, Mistsplitter-Ayaka, Pines-Eula) but I want to know everyone's personal opinion.

Personally, I'm only a dolphin so I don't pull on the weapon banner. But I'm planning to try for Albedo's weapon (Summit Shaper) since I'm at guaranteed + pity for him, and I'll still have lots of primos left over after getting him. Lots of people tell me that it's not worth it and that I should just use HoD on him. Well, those statements were the inspiration for this topic.

~~~

Extra: Would you pull, though, if you didn't even have the character?

Weapon banner is a scam, even if you are a whale.

If you don’t have either 5* weapon and want at least a few of the 4*s.

horde for CHARACTER banners you want, rather than wasting it on the weapons banner. honestly, the weapons banner shouldn't cost acquainted [rainbow] fates, but the blue ones...

hmm, interesting.
if you don't mind me asking, are you a spender?

i agree with your reasoning, though. character-weapon aesthetic is important! (not to the gameplay, but it sure does feel good when you see the matching colour combo)

Imo weapon banner is worth it if:
Both featured weapons are godly (like the Homa WGS banner)

If you already satisfied with your rooster and not feeling like pulling anymore

Otherwise it's not worth it imo, even if the weapon can improve your damage by a lot.
nope you are nitpicking and biased, I win bye-bye
