How to get “Absolution of Sins”

Absolution is a limited-time legendary one-handed weapon, meaning it can only be obtained from a limited-time weapon banner.

As of Patch 4.7 on June 5, 2024, Absolution can be obtained from the Weave of Eternal Sleep weapon banner. It is worth considering that it will only be available during the first half of the update.

Characteristics of the “Absolution” weapon

  • Rarity: 5 stars
  • Basic attack : 47 (level 1) – 675 (level 90)
  • Critical damage bonus (in%): 9.6 (level 1) – 44.1 (level 90)

The sword's ability works as follows: when the active character's life debt effect increases, the damage they deal increases by 16%. This buff lasts 6 seconds and stacks up to 3 times. Also, it passively increases the hero’s critical damage by 20%, which in total will give us an increase of as much as 64% at level 90. 

How to awaken “Absolution”

Awakening any weapon in Genshin Impact is necessary to level up a passive ability. Most weapons in the game require a duplicate to awaken, and the Absolution sword is no exception. To fully upgrade the passive sword skill, we need 4 copies and 30,000 mora.

Which heroes are suitable for “Absolution”

As of patch 4.7, the Absolution sword is only truly suitable for Clorinda because, unlike the Harlequin Spear, the sword does not impose life debt with its abilities. However, one interesting scenario where you can effectively use Absolution on any character using a one-handed sword is when fighting Wind or Frost Operators. They impose a life debt, which encourages the activation of the weapon's passive ability. Now let's look at the heroes on whom Absolution fits best.

Character Advantages

Clorinda

Clearly the best choice for Clorinda is her signature sword “Absolution”. Her elemental skill converts 80% of incoming healing into life debt, which makes the weapon's passive ability work, and Clorinda will deal an additional 16%-32% more damage per stack. The ultimate also imposes a life debt proportional to her maximum HP.

Ke Qing

Obviously, without life debt, Absolution is just a gag with a huge critical damage buff, but that's basically what any damage dealer needs, including Ke Qing.

Al-Haytham

Al-Haytham has a similar situation to Ke Qing, but he needs in addition to critical damage is even greater, since with elevation, only the dendro damage bonus is pumped up.

Bennett

This weapon can be given to Bennett only because of its high base attack rate of 90 level, as many as 674 units. Only Mist Cutter and Falcon Sword have a similar meaning.

Xing Qiu

Xing Qiu with this sword can inflict good critical damage from an elemental skill. This should only be done when the character has a lot of energy recovery from artifacts.

How to effectively use Absolution

The mechanics of the sword are quite simple, but require the hard to obtain life debt debuff. At the moment, the only hero who uses a one-handed sword and is able to apply this debuff to himself is Clorinda. Let's look at how to properly use this weapon on her.

Clorinda imposes a life debt equal to 80% of the healing, so it is important to stock up healers for the team. Kokomi or Barbara would be great options, as they heal long enough and don't require switching to themselves. Then everything is simple: press the healing abilities of the supports, switch to main damage dealer Clorinda, use her elemental skill and perform 2-3 normal attacks. The life debt will activate, and then the sword's passive will trigger. As soon as the treatment is over and the life debt subsides (press E-shka again), press the ult – it will update the debuff we need so much. Do it all over again.
