Genshin Impact’s newest weekly boss is a special form of Raiden Shogun, formally called Magatsu Mitake Narukami no Mikoto. You can find her in the End of Oneiric Euthymia trounce domain after completing the second Raiden Shogun story quest. Our Genshin Impact Raiden Shogun weekly boss guide will walk you through unlocking the new boss, what she drops, and how to beat her.

How to unlock Magatsu Mitake Narukami no Mikoto (Raiden Shogun weekly boss)

To unlock the new Raiden Shogun weekly boss, you need to do the following:

  • Be at least Adventure Rank 40 or higher.
  • Complete the Archon Quest “Chapter 2: Act 3 — Omnipresence Over Mortals.”
  • Complete the Raiden Shogun story quest “Imperatrix Umbrosa Chapter: Act 2 — Transient Dreams.”

In the Raiden Shogun story quest, you will fight a story mode version of the boss, which (though much easier than the weekly version) will give you an idea of how to fight her.

Magatsu Mitake Narukami no Mikoto boss fight tips

Like many other Genshin Impact bosses, Magatsu Mitake Narukami no Mikoto has a couple of gimmicks that you’ll want to bring specific elements for.

While your main DPS’ element doesn’t really matter, bring at least one Cryo character to break her shields quickly.

She will also launch one large sweeping attack that “cracks” the screen, and the only way to protect yourself is to use Electro to quickly activate a shield on the map, so make sure to bring an Electro character as well. The shield activates after taking enough damage, but in our experience, we were cutting it very close when using a non-Electro character.

Similarly to the other newer weekly bosses, Raiden Shogun does not go down quickly and she hits hard, so it’s better to take your time fighting her and keep your party healed and shielded.

Magatsu Mitake Narukami no Mikoto boss drops

Just like the other Genshin Impact weekly bosses, Magatsu Mitake Narukami no Mikoto drops Berserker, Instructor, The Exile, Gladiator’s Finale, and Wanderer’s Troupe artifact pieces. She also has a chance to drop Northlander Billets and Dream Solvents.

The drops you should be running this boss for are her unique materials: Mudra of the Malefic General, Tears of the Calamitous God, and The Meaning of Aeons. These materials raise the talent level of specific characters starting at rank six.

As of writing this, only Yae Miko uses materials dropped by this boss. Yae requires The Meaning of Aeons to upgrade her talents.
