Sapwood Blade – How to get, Ascension, stats, and who can use it in Genshin Impact

This sword is a must-have!

Sapwood Blade is one of Genshin Impact's four-star swords and is a completely free-to-play weapon as it can be obtained by crafting. It's the most useful weapon in the Forest Sanctuary series, as it's one of the best budget picks for Bennett and can be used by other amazing supports as well.

How to get Sapwood Blade in Genshin Impact

Sapwood Blade is a craftable weapon that can't be obtained by pulling on any banner. Instead, you must play through Sumeru's Aranyaka quest chain to get Quest Items called Stories of You and the Aranara. Then speak to Aravinay in dream Vanarana to exchange them for Forging Blueprints, including the Tale of the Desert, which is used to craft Sapwood Blade.

Learn the Blueprint by using it from your Inventory, then head to any Blacksmith to forge it with the following materials:

  • x1 Midlander Sword Billet
  • x50 Crystal Chunk
  • x50 White Iron Cunk
  • x500 Mora

It only takes 10 seconds to get this sword and you can craft as many as you like for Refinements.

Genshin Impact Sapwood Blade stats

  • Base Attack: 44 to 565
  • Substat: Energy Recharge (6.7 to 30.6 percent)
  • Passive: Forest Sanctuary
    • After triggering Burning, Quicken, Aggravate, Spread, Bloom, Hyperbloom, or Burgeon, a Leaf of Consciousness will be created around the character for a maximum of 10 seconds.
    • When picked up, the Leaf will grant the character 60/75/90/105/120 Elemental Mastery for 12 seconds. Only 1 Leaf can be generated this way every 20 seconds. This effect can still be triggered if the character is not on the field. The Leaf of Consciousness' effect cannot stack.

Who can use Sapwood Blade in Genshin Impact

Sapwood Blade has a high Base Attack and an Energy Recharge substat, automatically making it a great pick for characters who scale off Base Attack or those who love to use their Elemental Bursts. However, to use its Elemental Mastery-boosting passive, you need to run a Dendro Reaction comp, which can limit your options. Also, it's important to know that the Elemental Mastery boost goes to the character who picks up the Leaf of Consciousness (similar to Xiangling's chili), not necessarily the wielder.

With that said, here are the characters who can use Sapwood Blade:
