Genshin Impact 4.1 will release a new HP Sword - The Dockhand's Assistant
The Dockhand's Assistant's stats, skills, and best characters to use it
The Dockhand's Assistant is a 4-star Sword that has a Base ATK of 510 and an HP bonus secondary stat of 41.3%. In addition, the weapon's passive grants a Stoic Symbol to the wielder whenever someone in the party is healed. This effect can be stacked up to three times, each lasting 30 seconds.
Upon using Elemental Skill or Burst, the user will gain Elemental Mastery and Energy for 10 seconds based on the number of Symbols consumed. Each Symbol gives 40 EM and two Energy, so the user can gain up to 120 EM and six Energy refunds. These effects can be triggered even when the wielder is off-field.
Here is a list of characters that can use the new HP sword in Genshin Impact:
- Nilou (great HP stick for her and helps in Bloom reactions).
- Kuki Shinobu (she needs both HP and EM so the sword goes really well with her kit).
- Bennett (for a healer build).
- Layla (more HP for a stronger shield and higher burst damage).
- Kirara (more HP for a stronger shield).
Since HP Swords are rare in Genshin Impact, players can try pulling for The Dockhand's Assistant and get it for their favorite characters.
