How to get The Catch in Genshin Impact: Inazuma and Mondstadt fishing locations

The Catch Genshin ImpactmiHoYo

The Catch is one of the best polearms in Genshin Impact but it can be difficult to obtain in the game. Here’s exactly how you can get The Catch in Genshin Impact. 

The Catch is a great polearm choice for those looking to maximize Raiden Shogun‘s DPS in Genshin Impact. Not only is this weapon capable of unleashing some great damage, but you won’t need to spend any hard-earned Primogems to obtain it. This makes it a particularly strong replacement for those that do not have the game’s 5-star polearm, Engulfing Lightning.

However, unlocking The Catch in Genshin Impact can take a long time, especially if you don’t know where to find the materials to make it. If you’re aiming to claim this prized polearm or just wish to see how it compares to other weapons, you’ll want to add The Catch to your weapon collection.

How to refine The Catch

The Catch is fairly easy to refine and requires a lot fewer resources than it takes to unlock the equipment. However, before you can pursue the refinement, you’ll have to unlock the Ako’s Sake Vessel. You can trade this item from Kujirai Momiji. Once you have it, you can refine The Catch from Kujirai Momiji herself.
