The Alley Flash is a 4-star sword weapon in Genshin Impact. It is part of the "Alley" series that was introduced to the game in patch 1.4, and will be returning in the second weapon banner of patch 1.6. Here's everything you need to know about what it does, how to obtain it, and who to use it on.

The Alley Flash Genshin Impact: Everything You Need to Know

The Alley Flash provides Base ATK and Elemental Mastery as its secondary stat. Below are the base stats for The Alley Flash:

  • Base ATK (Lv. 1): 45
  • Elemental Mastery (Lv. 1): 12
  • Special Passive Ability: Itinerant Hero - Increases DMG dealt by the character equipping this weapon by 12%. Taking DMG disables this effect for 5s.

The damage buff of The Alley Flash's passive ability is simple but effective, but the drawback that taking damage disables the effect, as well as the Elemental Mastery substat, means The Alley Flash is more suited for an off-field Sub DPS or support character.

Bennett is an example of a character that supports his team from off-field, so he can easily avoid taking damage and keep The Alley Flash's passive going. The Alley Flash also has extremely high Base ATK, which is great because the buff from Bennett's Burst scales off his Base ATK. Other characters that are a good fit include Xingqiu and Kaeya, who can both support the team as an off-field Sub DPS.

It's also worth mentioning that The Alley Flash may be a perfect fit for the upcoming 5-star character, Kaedehara Kazuha. Kazuha specializes in off-screen damage, and his Ascension 2 Passive talent grants Elemental DMG bonus to his teammates based on his Elemental Mastery, making use of The Alley Flash's substat.

How to Get The Alley Flash

The Alley Flash will be included in the second rate-up weapon banner of patch 1.6, which will begin on June 29 alongside Kazuha's banner. This is a great chance for players to pull for The Alley Flash if they want it.
