As initially announced during the Version 2.1 Special Program Preview livestream, the Engulfing Lightning is one of two new 5-Star weapons coming to Genshin Impact in the Version 2.1 update on Sept. 1, 2021.

The Engulfing Lightning Polearm will only be obtainable by pulling it from the Weapon Wish Banner. Being that Version 2.1's new headliner character, Raiden Shogun, is a Polearm user, players can expect Engulfing Lightning's weapon banner to come out shortly into the first phase of the new update.

The naginata is said to increase its user's attack by 28% of the current Energy Recharge over the base 100%. Additionally, after using an Elemental Burst, its user can gain a 30%-80% Energy Recharge bonus for 12 seconds.

More information on the Engulfing Lightning, Everlasting Moonglow, Luxurious Sea-Lord and "The Catch" is set to be officially announced closer to the launch of Version 2.1 in Genshin Impact.
