The Sacrificial Sword is a four-star weapon in Genshin Impact that is best suited for creating Elemental high DPS builds. It is one of the four weapons from the Sacrificial Series that overall received a good critical reception from the Genshin Impact community. Moreover, the sacrificial sword is a weapon that once belonged to the Gunnhildr Clan who used the sword to defend Mondstadt from monsters and other threats.

For players who are not well versed with Genshin Impact’s lore, the Gunnhildr Clan is one of the two major clans that protect and somewhat rule over Mondstadt. And, we already have two playable characters from the Gunnhildr Clan, the five-star Anemo user Jean and the four-star hydro user Barbara.
