Genshin Impact Cursed Blade Ascension materials, stats, and who should use Cursed Blade

The Cursed Sword in Genshin Impact is a 4-star sword introduced as part of update 2.8.

Although he debuted at the same time as Anemo 4-Star’s new character Heizou, he cannot use it because he is a catalyst carrier. Since the sword is part of the Kazuha Story Quest, he can equip it if you don’t have better options.

Kazuha isn’t the only character in Genshin Impact who can use the Cursed Sword, so we’ll go over which characters can benefit from the sword’s stats and all the ascension materials you need to upgrade the 4-star weapon below.

Genshin Impact Cursed Blade Skill, Stats, and Attack Damage

The Cursed Sword is a 4-star sword that increases the attack stat of any character who equips it. This is beneficial for those whose abilities increase from a higher attack number, whether it be pure damage potential or a healing effect.

Here’s a summary of Cursed Blade’s abilities and stats in Genshin Impact:

  • Rarity: 4 stars
  • Base Attack: 42
  • Secondary Stat: Attack
  • Secondary stat value: 9
  • Special Skill (Passive): Isshin Art Clarity (When a normal, charged, or diving attack hits an opponent, it will create a Hewing Gale, dealing AOE damage equal to 180% of the attack and increasing attack by 15% for eight seconds, but this effect can only be activated once every eight seconds)

As it is a weapon obtained through the Kazuha Story Quest, you will not be able to refine the Cursed Sword.

To get the Cursed Sword to level 90, you will have to use Ascension materials to upgrade the sword. This requires a lot of Mora and agricultural materials.

It will be necessary to obtain masks, figurines and spectral materials of various rarities to increase the level of Ascension of the Cursed Sword.

Materials can be found while exploring, in domains, dropped by enemies, participating in events, and some can even be purchased from the various in-game stores.

To upgrade Lyney, you will need a lot of Rainbow Rose and Lynette requires Lumidouce Bell. You’ll also need luck from the Pity and 50/50 systems to wish the fate of them and future banners, and you’ll always need the correct adventure rank for events.

Who should use Cursed Blade in Genshin Impact?

The Cursed Sword will not be used for any character’s best build, as there are other 4-star swords that are more suitable if you want to increase your DPS potential, such as Amenoma Kageuchi, Iron Sting, or Black Sword.

However, if you are a new Genshin Impact player, you may not have these swords yet. If that’s the case, then you can equip the Cursed Sword to any sword wielder you’re building around their attack stat.

If it’s based on attack, here’s who should use the Cursed Sword in Genshin Impact:

  • Ayaka
  • Ayato
  • Cowboy
  • kazuha
  • keqing
  • Qiqi
  • Traveler

Keep in mind that if you’re building an Elemental DPS or sub DPS character, the Cursed Sword will be pretty useless (unless you really don’t have a good substitute).
