Item Story

They say that when Liyue first arose, Rex Lapis once walked the land with a sword hewn from jade.
Despite the constant wear and tear of age, the jade edge, so bathed in blood, still retained a polished sheen as if brand-new.
The blood was washed away in the rain of a thousand years, yet the thoughts and grudges that gathered about it could not be so easily eliminated.

"Nephrite has the soul of the Bishui's gentle heart, and will in time cleanse itself of the remnant grudges within."
"But who will ease the agony that the jade itself feels for having become an instrument of slaughter?"

These words of a friend long-forgotten were both lament and sigh.
But the inexorable gears of destiny would drown out those compassionate words.

In the passing of many long years, many became mortal foes who once made merry together,
While those who betrayed one another or fought to the death would come to share a drink, their hatred dispelled.
So it was also with this precious sword, carved as it once was to be given as an expensive gift to a certain someone.
This jade too was once cut for love of peace and luxury.

When wine vessels are filled with blood, and when tender feelings are ripped asunder by cold ambition and reduced to dust on the wind,
Gifts ungiven and bonds unspoken will become sharp blades with which to cleave erstwhile friends.

    Soooooo I’m planning on pulling for Ayato and im f2p, i really don’t know if i should pull for the weapon banner and if i did so what weapon should i get for him? Any recommendation or advice?

      pjc and mistsplitter are very good for him
      haran, his signature weapon, is surprinsigly not his bis in all situations but definitely a good option for him too
      and you can also get black sword from BP 🙂

    Sooo for future plans. wich weapon should I try to get, jade cutter, mistsplitter or the new Haran? I don’t think I will get Ayato but I want a good sword for my other sword users and maby for future characters. I thougt jade cutter would be the best for my choice but everyone is saying mistsplitter or haran is better. what do you think? my current sword users are kazuha, xing and jean (I don’t think these are good on jean)

      Jade cutter is probably your best option. It is very generalist and makes building Xingqiu and Jean a lot easier. You can put Jade Cutter on almost any sword character.
      That being said, Jade Cutter is almost never the best in slot option for most characters. But it is almost always 2nd best in slot for every sword user.
      Either way, you likely don’t need a 5 star sword for your current roster of sword users. Kazuha is already very good with just an Iron Sting (f2p & craftable), Xingqiu has very good 4 star options (e.g. Sacrificial Sword), and Jean can utilize a lot of different options as well (r5 HoD, Anemona Kageuchi).

    Îyesterday i got 2 JC in a ten pull (crazy). As a F2P i’m wondering if i should refine it or upgrade both swords for the most value. I also have mistsplitter… and i prob not gonna use 3 sword dps in one team. conclusion mihoyo should release a dual wielder as a hero….

    So… This with an HP sands on Ayato sounds pretty good

      ATK% sands would still be better than an HP% sands, as he still scales more off of atk than HP. Plus, PJC passive converts HP% into a lower % of ATK, so there would be a smaller benefit if you were to convert it rather than go for it directly

        well i did quick math, with PJC, an HP% sands gives you same amount of atk or more if have good akt% substat.
        if we supposed 30.000 hp ofc

      Make Bennet a hybrid DPS (pyro cup, cdmg helm) and use it on him.
      Kazuha prefers EM or ER over ATK% and CRIT%, Jean could work too but she’s clunkier to use, Albedo already has his DEF% sword from his event.

    so Ayato is confirmed now, i have been wondering about which sword to get, Jade Cutter or Mistplitter ?

    i have been living the life of ” 70% crit rate but no crit”, so im kinda leaning on Jade cutter rn.

      Jade Cutter is a generally good sword. But Mistplitter would beat it miles if Ayato is an “Infuser” like Ayaka.

      Though if I am sure Ayato would have his own sword. NOW, this begs the question, what would it be? and Is he really going to be a dps? Because if he is a main dps hydro infused swordsman, Mistplitter would be BiS. Maybe he isn’t going to be an infuser like Ayaka. Or maybe he would be support or subdps.

      Anyway, too early to tell. Hopefully we learn it in just a week.

        Its not by miles. Its 9% stronger if you have all 3 stacks up. 2 stacks its lower then Jade Cutter by 5% and 1 stack its not even worth mentioning.

        Jade Cutter is great because it can be used for pretty much every sword user in every role.

      Its worth it if you already have other 5 star weapons you wanted.

      Jade is very flexible and can be used on every character unlike Mistsplitter with similar damage.

      Bennett could handle this weapon pretty well. The HP% on the passive and the crit rate suits him well. the only downside for this on bennett is the low base attack on the weapon. as you know, bennett’s burst give an attack bonus that scales with bennett’s base attack.

      tldr; This weapon is great on bennett, but lack the base attack for his burst.

      It is pretty much B.I.S for geo traveler (i assume anemo too) and depending on how u build jean, this could be her B.I.S. or one of her B.I.S.

    Its good for a DPS Bennett. If you are building your Bennett for support, you would prefer other weapons that provide a higher base attack than PJC. E.G Skyward Blade is one of his best support weapons as it gives him free ER to met the requirement and an ok passive , Aquila Favonia & MistSplitter provide the highest base attack for Bennett if you want to boost your team to the max for damage but you need a higher ER requirement from your artifacts. The passive for PJC only applies to Bennett and doesn’t affect how much attack he gives his teammates during burst.

    Isn’t this perfect for tenacity Albedo, if not an expensive upgrade to HoD

      • Odenta on 11 November 2021 at 1:15 pm

      You lose the Crit damage but get higher base Atk, the HP bonus is nice but it’s not really gonna add up to that much considering Albedo doesn’t scale with HP.

      I’d say it’s too expensive particularly for Albedo, HoD is just too good on him, but this is generally a good weapon on any other sword user that isn’t Bennett (low base Atk), Xingqui (Sac too good) and Qiqi (Sac too good… also kinda not worth). So if you have Ayaka, Jean, Keqing it’s great on all of them and push comes to shove it’s also great on Kaeya.

    No, the only thing that counts for base attack is character base attack and weapon base attack.

    This is good on Bennett if you’re running him DPS, it’s not if you’re running him pure support.

        Amos bow not really THE best for Ganyu, but that’s debatable. Other bows are better to pull since they’re also more versatile, can be used on different Ganyu styles and different bow DPS or Sub-dps or whatever, just dmg-dealing.
