Genshin Impact: Mistsplitter Reforged Guide – Best characters to use

miHoYo /

Genshin Impact’s much anticipated 2.0 update is finally upon us, and there’s a veritable trove of new content coming in Inazuma. The brand new zone brings with it some new weapons, and the Mistsplitter Reforged is one of the two headliner weapons in 2.0’s Weapon Banner. Is Mistsplitter Reforged worth spending your hard earned Primogems on? Let’s take a look at the new five-star sword and which units can use it best.

Disclaimer: The weapon Baal uses in the 2.0 trailer, while similar in design, is not the Mistsplitter Reforged.

Mistsplitter Reforged: Stats

According to miHoYo, Mistsplitter Reforged has the following stats at level 90 and first Refinement:

Base ATK: 674
CRIT DMG: 44.1%

Mistsplitter Reforged gives a 12% Elemental DMG bonus for all elements. Fulfilling the following criteria will grant one stack of the Mistsplitter’s Emblem each, which gives an 8% Elemental DMG for the equipped character’s Element with one stack, 16% with two and 28% for all three. Each stack’s duration is calculated separately.

Normal attack deals Elemental damage- 5 seconds
Casting Elemental Burst- 10 seconds
Having less than 100% Energy- until Energy is full

Mistsplitter Reforged: Characters

First things first: five-star Weapons are so powerful that they’ll be amazing on any character you give them too, regardless of synergy. If you match the character to the weapon, you’ll go even further. With Mistsplitter Reforged, you’ll want to be dealing Elemental damage with your Normal attacks to keep an Emblem on. It doesn’t seem at first to synergize with high Energy Recharge, but firing your Burst will give you the other two stacks quickly: one from the cast and the other from depleting your energy.

There are currently five sword users who can infuse their Normal attacks with their Elements: Keqing,


, Ayaka, Traveler and Bennett. These are the only characters that can achieve the weapon’s three Emblems and get the most out of Mistsplitter Reforged.

Keqing gets an Electro infusion after using her Stellar Restoration’s blink mode. Kazuha doesn’t have an infusion, but the plunging attack that deals Anemo damage during Chihayaburu is still part of his Normal attack skill. Ayaka gets a Cryo infusion after coming out of her dash/alternate sprint.

Both Anemo and Geo Traveler get an Elemental attack after their Normal combo is finished. Electro Traveler’s skills haven’t been revealed yet, but it’s reasonable to assume they’ll get the same combo finisher ability.

Bennett only gets his infusion when he’s at his final Constellation. All of your characters’ Normal attack inside his Fantastic Voyage’s Inspiration Field will get a Pyro infusion. Technically this also allows any other Sword user to make the most of Mistsplitter Reforged’s three Emblems, but this final Constellation fundamentally changes how Bennett plays and I don’t recommend redeeming it unless miHoYo allows us to toggle Constellations at some point.

The best characters to give Mistsplitter Reforged are Keqing, Ayaka and Kazuha. These three have ways to deal Elemental damage consistently, whether it’s Keqing’s quick cool-downs, Ayaka’s dash giving a Cryo infusion or Kazuha’s long Elemental Burst effect.

Even without the potential to reach all three Emblems, the weapon’s raw stat buffs to Elemental and CRIT damage makes it great on any Sword user. Burst Supports like Xingqiu, Kaeya and Albedo can take advantage of the two stacks they can generate, as their abilities linger on the field. At the very least, using a Burst will always grant an 8% damage bonus on top the 12% that’s already on the sword.
