Genshin Impact: Sacrificial Sword – How to get it, stats, and ascension materials

A stellar four-star sword.

The Sacrificial Sword is one of the best swords for support characters in Genshin Impact, even though it’s just a four-star weapon. The Sacrificial Sword is unique, in that it can completely reset the cooldown of a character’s Elemental Skill, allowing them to cast it twice and gain more energy.

As a 4-star weapon, the weapon is obtainable from the Standard Banner, the Featured Banner, and the Weapon Banner. You can get this weapon at any time from all three banners, making this an attractive option for free-to-play or low-spending players. Occasionally, this weapon will have a rate-up on the weapons banner, so keep your eyes peeled if you need this weapon.

Sacrificial Sword’s Stats:

  • Rarity: 4-star
  • ATK: 41 – 454
  • Secondary Stat: Energy Recharge%
  • Secondary Stat Level: 13.3% – 61.3%

Is the Sacrificial Sword any good?

The Sacrificial Sword is an excellent support item for sword characters like Xingqiu and Kazuha. Both characters appreciate the chance to use their skills twice, as it generates more energy and allows them to cast their Elemental Burst more often. Not to mention, both characters have high damaging Elemental Skills, so a double-cast means more damage as well.

However, the Sacrificial Sword is less useful on lower refinements. A 40% chance to reset your cooldowns on 30 seconds is not excellent, so you need to pull multiple Sacrificial Swords to raise the percent chance and lower the cooldown.
