The character will obtain 1 stack of Mistsplitter’s Emblem in each of the following scenarios: Normal Attack deals Elemental DMG (stack lasts 5s), casting Elemental Burst (stack lasts 10s); Energy is less than 100% (stack disappears when Energy is full). Each stack’s duration is calculated independently.This a weapon most suited if you want to build Hydro Traveler as a DPS who specializes in dealing high amounts of DMG. Crit DMG sub-stat aside, the Passive increases Elemental DMG and can be stacked.

Primordial Jade Cutter
Base ATK: 110 Substat: 17.0% Crit RateHP increased by 20%. Additionally, provides an ATK Bonus based on 1.2% of the wielder’s Max HP.A good Weapon for a DPS Hydro Traveler build. The extra Max HP can be useful on Traveler due to the new HP mechanic, the ATK bonus being provided from the HP scaling is fairly welcomed. The sub-stat can also help with increasing their Crit rate. Overall a decent DPS weapon.

Base ATK: 122 Substat: 76 EMA part of the “Millennial Movement” that wanders amidst the winds. Increases DMG by 10%. When the character wielding this weapon triggers Elemental Reactions, they gain a Sigil of Rebellion. This effect can be triggered once every 0.5s and can be triggered even if said character is not on the field.

When you possess 2 Sigils of Rebellion, all of them will be consumed and all nearby party members will obtain “Millennial Movement: Song of Resistance” for 12s. “Millennial Movement: Song of Resistance” increases Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attack DMG by 16% and increases ATK by 20%.

Once this effect is triggered, you will not gain Sigils of Rebellion for the 20s. Of the many effects of the “Millennial Movement,” buffs of the same type will not stack.
 An Alternative weapon for Hydro Traveler. Its high Base ATK and EM sub-stat can help boost their reaction damage but as a Support weapon, it’s mainly there to buff your team’s normal, charged, and plunge attack damage and provide an ATK bonus. Although with Traveler’s high ER needs it is recommended that you use such weapons if you fulfilled their Energy requirements.
Finale of the Deep 4 Star Sword Weapon Genshin Impact
Finale of the Deep
Base ATK: 119 ATK: 10.6%When using an Elemental Skill, ATK will be increased by 12% for 15s, and a Bond of Life worth 25% of Max HP will be granted. This effect can be triggered once every 10s. When the Bond of Life is cleared, a maximum of 150 ATK will be gained based on 2.4% of the total amount of the Life Bond cleared, lasting for 15.An F2P and craftable weapon for a DPS Hydro Traveler build that focuses on ATK. Since the Traveler has the HP mechanic on their kit, the weapon is useful for them to increase their ATK.
Fleuve Cendre Ferryman 4 Star Sword Weapon Genshin Impact
Fleuve Cendre Ferryman
Base ATK:109
Energy Recharge:17.7%
Increases Elemental Skill CRIT Rate by 8%. Additionally, increases Energy Recharge by 16% for 5s after using an Elemental Skill.The new obtainable weapon from Fontaine’s Fishing Association.

Genshin Impact Hydro Traveler best weapons
Base ATK: 109 CRIT Rate: 10.6%  DMG dealt by Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst is increased by 16%. When an Elemental Skill hits an opponent, its CRIT Rate will be increased by 2%. When an Elemental Burst hits an opponent, its CRIT Rate will be increased by 2%. Both of these effects last 10s separately, have 4 max stacks and can be triggered once every 0.1s.The new BP weapon is good on a DPS Hydro Traveler build. The sub-stat provides Crit and the Passive increase Skill and Burst DMG. Additionally, the Crit rate of both will be increased and can be stacked.

Favonius Sword
Base ATK: 99 Energy Recharge: 23.6%CRIT Hits have a 60% chance to generate a small amount of Elemental Particles, which will regenerate 6 Energy for the character. Can only occur once every 12s.The Favonius Sword is an excellent choice for a support character, and it can particularly benefit Traveler’s energy requirements. This weapon serves as an energy source for your teammates, making it well-suited for them. To optimize its effect, it’s advisable to have crit rate stats on Traveler, ensuring the weapon’s Passive triggers more consistently. With the Favonius Sword, Lynette can contribute even more effectively to their team’s energy needs while maintaining a steady flow of their Burst abilities.

Sacrificial Sword
Base ATK: 99 Energy Recharge: 23.6%After damaging an opponent with an Elemental Skill, the skill has a 40% chance to end its own CD. Can only occur once every 30s.The Sac Sword is easily one of the best options for Traveler for an overall build of Sub-DPS/DPS. Traveler as mentioned has high ER needs to proc their Burst. The Passive lets them easily use their Skill more frequently due to the CD reset. It can also quickly generate more Hydro particles due to the ER sub-stat. Although ideally, this weapon works best if it is Refinement 4 and above.

Festering Desire
Base ATK: 109 Substat: 17.7% ERIncreases Elemental Skill DMG by 16% and Elemental Skill CRIT Rate by 6%.Festering Desire is an alternative F2P option if you do not have the materials for the craft-able weapons or do not have any Gacha weapons that are mentioned above. The sub-stat can help with Traveler’s ER and increase damage with their Skill. Although this weapon is more of a last-minute option than most. 

There is quite an assortment of weapon options to choose especially if you do not have the right weapon for Hydro Traveler. They have quite a lot of F2P options as seen in the table above. The Hydro Traveler will mostly rely on either providing them with Crit weapons to deal high amounts of damage, EM-related Weapons for a more reactionary team comp, or ER weapons to have a more sub-dps build to apply Hydro frequently. Overall the options are quite flexible.
