Xiphos’ Moonlight – How to get, Ascension, stats, and who can use it in Genshin Impact

This amazing sword is a great pick for ER and EM-loving characters.

Xiphos' Moonlight is a four-star sword that buffs the wielder's Energy Recharged based on their Elemental Mastery. As such, the sword is perfect for characters who heavily rely on these two stats, as it will help you offset what you lack from Artifacts.
