One of the top priorities when building Xingqiu in Genshin Impact is assuring the availability of his Elemental Burst. This can be done using Energy Recharge artifacts, but the more common method is by using the assistance of weapons or by relying on battery characters like Raiden Shogun.

When it comes to Xingqiu weapon in Genshin Impact, players can switch between an Energy Recharge provider like Sacrificial or Favonius Sword, or opt for full offense using 5-star equipment like Primordial Jade Cutter or Mistsplitter Reforged. Here’s a list of the best Xingqiu weapons in Genshin Impact, ranked based on their tier.

1/8 Sacrificial Sword


Base ATK 454
Sub-Stat 61.3% Energy Recharge
R5 Passive After dealing damage to an opponent with an Elemental Skill, the skill has a 80% chance to end its own CD. Can only occur once every 16s.

Sacrificial Sword is an S+ tier weapon for Xingqiu in Genshin Impact. Although it has a low base ATK, the Sword makes up for it with its massive Energy Recharge sub-stat. Its passive practically guarantees Xingqiu will regain his Burst as soon as he uses his Skill twice, and the extra Particles also help the entire team, although to a lower extent.

2/8 Favonius Sword


Base ATK 454
Sub-Stat 61.3% Energy Recharge
R5 Passive Crit hits have a 100% chance to generate a small amount of Elemental Particles, which will regenerate 6 Energy for the character. Can only occur once every 6s.

Unlike Sacrificial Sword, Favonius Sword is more beneficial for the entire team. If this A+ tier weapon isn’t sufficient for Xingqiu to regain his Burst, then players should stick with Sacrificial Sword.

3/8 Primordial Jade Cutter


Base ATK 542
Sub-Stat 44.1% Crit Rate
Passive HP increased by 20%. Additionally, provides an ATK Bonus based on 1.2% of the wielder’s Max HP.

If the Energy requirement is fulfilled on Xingqiu, then he can opt for more offensive S tier equipment like Primordial Jade Cutter. This Sword offers a massive Crit Rate sub-stat, meaning people can ignore this stat on artifacts. A small HP increase also doesn’t hurt since it helps Xingqiu defend and heal better in Genshin Impact.

4/8 Mistsplitter Reforged


Base ATK 674
Sub-Stat 44.1% Crit DMG
Passive Gain a 12% Elemental DMG Bonus for all elements and receive the might of the Mistsplitter’s Emblem. At stack levels 1/2/3, Mistsplitter’s Emblem provides a 8/16/28% Elemental DMG Bonus for the character’s Elemental Type. 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.

Mistsplitter Reforged is also excellent for people who wish to focus on Xingqiu’s DPS. Other than its Crit DMG sub-stat, its passive is also useful for the Guhua Disciple, to an extent. This Xingqiu weapon in Genshin Impact ranks in the S tier.

5/8 Haran Geppaku Futsu


Base ATK 608
Sub-Stat 33.1% Crit Rate
Passive Obtain 12% All Elemental DMG Bonus. When other nearby party members use Elemental Skills, the character equipping this weapon will gain 1 Wavespike stack. Max 2 stacks. This effect can be triggered once every 0.3s. When the character equipping this weapon uses an Elemental Skill, all stacks of Wavespike will be consumed to gain Rippling Upheaval: each stack of Wavespike consumed will increase Normal Attack DMG by 20% for 8s.

Haran Geppaku Futsu is a mere stat stick for Xingqiu, which places it in the A+ tier. Xingqiu won’t be using the Normal Attack buff of this weapon, but will, instead, greatly benefit from Haran’s Base ATK, Crit Rate Sub Stat, and the 12%  Hydro DMG buff from the Sword’s passive.

6/8 Light of Foliar Incision


Base ATK 542
Sub-Stat 88.2% Crit DMG
Passive Crit Rate is increased by 4%. After Normal Attacks deal Elemental DMG, the Foliar Incision effect will be obtained, increasing DMG dealt by Normal Attacks and Elemental Skills by 120% of Elemental Mastery. This effect will disappear after 28 DMG instances or 12s. You can obtain Foliar Incision once every 12s.

Similar to Haran Geppaku Futsu, Light of Foliar Incision is also an A+ tier weapon for Xingqiu in Genshin Impact. This Sword also buffs Xingqiu’s Normal Attack, which will not be used at all. However, the whopping 88% Crit DMG is enough to put it among the best weapons in Genshin Impact.

7/8 Skyward Blade


Base ATK 608
Sub-Stat 55.1% Energy Recharge
Passive Crit Rate increased by 4%. Gains Skypiercing Might upon using an Elemental Burst: Increases Movement SPD by 10%, increases ATK SPD by 10%, and Normal and Charged hits deal additional DMG equal to 20% of ATK. Skypiercing Might lasts for 12s.

Skyward Blade is simply good for Xingqiu for its Energy Recharge sub-stat, ranking in the A tier. It makes for a good weapon to use when building Xingqiu with 4-Emblem of Severed Fate since it grants him Energy Recharge, which transforms into extra DMG.

8/8 Festering Desire


Base ATK 510
Sub-Stat 45.9% Energy Recharge
R5 Passive Increases Elemental Skill DMG by 32% and Elemental Skill Crit Rate by 12%.

Veterans of Genshin Impact would remember Festering Desire, which was the first event-limited weapon. This Sword is an A- tier weapon for Xingqiu. It may not be the best weapon for Xingqiu in Genshin Impact, but the energy Recharge, Crit Rate, and extra DMG on his Elemental Skill are good enough for his kit.
