CharacterAdvantages

Bennett

One of the best uses for this sword. The “Energy Restoration” substat will allow Bennett's support to use his ultimate more often, thanks to this the pack will not sag in health, and the active character will receive a bonus to attack almost the entire time of the battle.

Kazuha

It makes sense to take this sword on Kazuha only for the sake of Energy Restoration, which will allow us take the sands to master the elements.

Djinn

The situation is similar to Bennett, the Heavenly Sword will also increase the use of the ultimate. A high base of the blade will increase the damage dealt by attacks and healing from elemental explosions, and the Genie sometimes likes to hit with normal attacks.

Xing Qiu

The Heavenly Sword can be an alternative to the Ceremonial Sword. Energy restoration is critical for him, since an elemental explosion costs as much as 80 energy units.

How to effectively use the Heavenly Sword

The Heavenly Sword does not require any extraordinary actions to be used effectively. After using an explosion of elements, it is worth delivering a couple of normal or charged blows – this will already be enough to unlock the potential of this weapon, however, if the hero wearing the Heavenly Sword is a DD (for example, Ayaka), then it is worthwhile to linger significantly on the battlefield and defend at least half actions of the sword's passive.
