Genshin Impact Northlander Sword Prototype Locations: Where to Find, How To Farm and Best Mining Route

Genshin Impact has taken the world by storm since its release in September.

The up to 4 player co-op game is completely free to play and is available on PC, iOS, Android, PS4, and soon to be PS5 and Nintendo Switch.

It has been likened the Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild, so that gives you an idea on what to expect from the game.

Because of this, the game has a heavy focus on collecting items to craft weapons, food, and more.

What Is The Northlander Sword Prototype?

The Northlander Sword Prototype can be used to forge 4-Star swords.

Philosophers believe marbles have the potential to be sculpted into beautiful statures. These prototypes also have unlimited potentials.

It can be used to forge the following weapons:

  • Prototype Rancour
  • Iron Sting

Where To Find Northlander Sword Prototype?

The Northlander Sword Prototype can be found either in the Souvenir Shop, or by defeating weekly bosses.

Currently there are 2 weekly bosses in the game and both may drop the item, but it is not a guarantee.

The bosses are:

  • Dvalin, which can be found in Stormterror's Lair
  • Andrius, which can be found in Wolvendom

Each bosses rewards respawn every Monday, so if you don't manage to get the Northlander Sword Prototype you'll have to wait until then to try again.

Alternatively, players can head to Mondstadt and find Marjorie who owns the With Wind Comes Glory souvenir shop.

Marjorie sells the item for 225 Anemo Sigils.

1.1 Update

The 1.1 update will launch on November 11th and will feature many changes to the games.

New additions include new characters, items, and quests.

There will also be a Reputation System and a new 2 week event called Unreconciled Stars.
