Who can use the Key of Khaj-Nisut in Genshin Impact

The Key of Khaj-Nisut focuses on buffing HP and Elemental Mastery based on the wielder's HP, so it's the perfect weapon for support characters whose kits also revolve around these two stats. As a result, it's a niche weapon that can only be efficiently used by two characters:

However, since the Key of Khaj-Nisut also buffs the wielder and team's Elemental Mastery, it's a good idea to build the wielder as in a way that allows them to constantly trigger Elemental Reactions. That could mean picking a Bloom build for Nilou as opposed to solely focusing on her personal DPS. Additionally, you may want to add characters who benefit from Elemental Mastery into the team to efficiently proc the weapon's passive bonus.
