Who is the Xiphos' Moonlight Good For?

Great for Elemental Reaction Characters

The Xiphos' Moonlight is great for characters like Kazuha, Kuki Shinobu, and Nilou who deal damage through Elemental Reactions. It is also a great weapon for supporting the team thanks to its skill passive.

Xiphos' Moonlight for Kazuha

The Xiphos' Moonlight is one of Kazuha's best 4-star weapons. It can slightly fix Kazuha's underlying Energy Recharge issues while also providing slight Energy Recharge buffs for the team!

Xiphos' Moonlight for Nilou

Xiphos' Moonlight is also a good weapon for an on-field Nilou as the primary Hydro applicator on enemies (like in triple Dendro team comps). It's not better than the Key of Khaj-Nisut, but it's a close second!

Is the Xiphos' Moonlight Worth it?

The Xiphos' Moonlight is great and is definitely worth pulling for. A big problem for Elemental Reaction characters is sacrificing Elemental Mastery for Energy Recharge. With the Xiphos' Moonlight, you can fully invest into Elemental Mastery while still building a bit of Energy Recharge!
