Is Freedom-Sworn in Genshin Impact a good 5-star sword?

Kazuha's favorite sword.

The Freedom-Sworn is a five-star sword that can be obtained from the Epitome Invocation whenever it's on the featured banner. It's highly regarded as the best-in-slot weapon for Kaedehara Kazuha, but it can work with other Elemental Mastery-loving characters, such as Jean and Albedo. While it's a great weapon on paper, it requires a very specific team composition and rotation to use—read on to find out whether it can fit into your team.

Stats

  • Base Attack: 46 to 608
  • Substat: Elemental Mastery (43 to 198)
  • Passive:
    • Increases Damage by 10/12.5/15/17.5/20 percent.
    • When the character wielding this weapon triggers Elemental Reactions, they gain a Sigil of Rebellion. This effect can be triggered once every 0.5 seconds and can be triggered even if said character is not on the field.
    • When you possess two Sigils of Rebellion, all of them will be consumed, and all nearby party members will obtain "Millennial Movement: Song of Resistance" for 12 seconds.
    • "Millennial Movement: Song of Resistance" increases Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attack Damage by 16/20/24/28/32 percent and increases Attack by 20/25/30/35/40 percent. Once this effect is triggered, you will not gain Sigils of Rebellion for 20 seconds. Of the many effects of the "Millennial Movement," buffs of the same type will not stack.

Is Freedom-Sworn Good?

The Freedom-Sworn is a great sword because it increases the Attack and Damage of all party members, even when the wielder is off-field. This makes it a particularly good option for characters that proc Reactions. Kaedehara Kazuha stands out because he's the best sword user that fills this role.

To use this sword efficiently, your team rotation will usually look like this: apply an Element to the enemy, proc Swirl with the Freedom-Sworn wielder, then follow up with your DPS to trigger a Reaction, such as Melt or Vaporize.

That way, the Attack and Damage boosts will amplify your DPS' output while further increasing the Damage obtained from triggering a Reaction. It's particularly good on Anemo, as Viridescent Veneer further increases the Damage output with an Elemental Resistance shred.

In summary, the Freedom-Sworn is a must-have if you have Kaedehara Kazuha and are running a team that triggers Melt and Vaporize Reactions. It's a niche choice for other sword-wielding characters that can proc Reactions, such as the Anemo Traveler, Jean, Albedo, Bennett, and Xingqiu. But there are better alternatives for these characters, so think twice before pulling the sword specifically for them.
