Genshin Impact Jadefall's Splendor Guide

Genshin Impact Jadefall’s Splendor Guide

Everyone loves seeing the golden sparkle of an incoming 5-star on their wish screen. Though we may feel a slight twinge of disappointment when we get a 5-star weapon over a shiny new 5-star character on the Standard Wish Banner, 5-star weapons can significantly boost the strength of your characters and give them some exciting and powerful abilities.

The weapon featured in this Genshin Impact Jadefalls Splendor guide is a 5-star catalyst featured alongside Baizhu’s banner, Immaculate Pulse. You can only get Jadefall’s Splendor by wishing on the Epitome Invocation banner.

Though this weapon is designed to be Baizhu‘s signature weapon, it can actually work quite well with a few different support characters. However, some alternative weapons can perform just as well as Jadefall’s Splendor for a fraction of the cost, so many players opted to skip this weapon – but that doesn’t mean you should!

Let’s take a closer look at Genshin Impact Jadefall’s Splendor Guide, and see what it can offer your characters, and whether it really is worth spending your hard-earned primogems on.

Bottom Line

Jadefall’s Splendor is a fantastic catalyst weapon to equip your healers and shielders with, and it can fix any energy recharge issues your characters may have. The HP percentage substat is excellent for both Baizhu and Kokomi.

However, being a 5-star weapon, it can be an expensive investment for some, especially if you’re looking to reach those higher refinement levels.

As Baizhu’s signature weapon, Jadefall’s Splendor is the perfect complement to his abilities. However, alternatives like the free-to-play-friendly Prototype Amber may prove to be more beneficial to players who don’t want to gamble on the Epitome Invocation weapon banner.

Where to Get Jadefall’s Splendor

Jadefall’s Splendor was featured on the Epitome Invocation weapons banner, which ran parallel with Baizhu’s event wish banner.

Considering the fact that Jadefall’s Splendor is Baizhu’s signature weapon, we can expect to see it reappear again when Baizhu gets a rerun. So if you missed this weapon when Baizhu first came around, you’d have to wait for his next banner to have a shot at getting this weapon.

Unfortunately, you won’t get Jadefall’s Splendor on the standard banner, so you’ll be at the mercy of the Epitomized Path pity system, which means you may end up with two different weapons before this shiny green catalyst graces you with its presence.

Jadefall’s Splendor Weapon Details

jadefall's splendour info

  • Rarity: 5-star
  • Base attack: 46 to 608
  • Secondary Stat: HP%
  • Secondary Stat value: 10.8% to 49.6%
  • Passive Ability: Primordial Jade Regalia
  • Passive Ability Description: For three seconds after your character uses an Elemental Burst or creates a shield, the character with Jadefall’s Splendor equipped can gain the Primordial Jade Regalia effect.

The Primordial Jade Regalia effect will restore 4.5 to 6.5 Energy every 2.5 seconds and will give a 0.3% to 1.1% Elemental damage bonus for the characters corresponding Elemental Type for every 1,000 Max HP they possess, up to 12% to 44%. This effect will still activate even if the equipping character is not on the field.

A max base attack of 608 is on the weaker side for a catalyst. However, if you’re using this catalyst on a character, they most likely aren’t going to be your main DPS, so we can forgive the slightly weaker attack stat for the amazing passive ability and HP gain.

The HP substat is where this catalyst shines, giving you an additional 49.6% HP at the max level. This alone puts it on par with Everlasting Moonglow.

However, the passive ability is what separates the two. Any time you create a shield or use an elemental burst, the character with Jadefall’s Splendor equipped will gain the Primordial Jade Regalia effect. This will increase your energy recharge and elemental damage for a short period of time, even if that character is not on the field.

As Baizhu’s signature weapon, this was, of course, created with him in mind. As a character that scales off of HP and has severe energy recharge issues, this weapon will help you combat that.

In terms of damage, you can get a 12% elemental damage bonus at refinement one, which is enormous for the moments when your support character is on the field. So if we keep using Baizhu as an example, he would gain up to 12% bonus Dendro damage when the Primordial Jade Regalia effect triggers.

Though this is not a great weapon for a main DPS character, it was never designed to be. This weapon is a fantastic buff to your supports, and the HP and ER buff plays so well with both Baizhu and Kokomi and will increase your healing tenfold.

Jadefall’s Splendor Stat Progression

Though it costs more overall to level a 5-star weapon to the maximum level than it would a 4-star weapon, it is definitely worth doing.

The more you level your Jadefall’s Splendor, the more HP you will gain, a must-have for any support characters that scale off of their HP, which is a surprising amount of them. Below is a table showing the relevant stats for each ascention level for Jadefall’s Splendor.

Level Bast Attack Substat (HP%)
1/20 46 10.8
20/40 153 19.1
40/50 266 27.8
50/60 340 32.2
60/70 414 36.5
70/80 488 40.9
80/90 563 45.3
90/90 608 49.6

If you’re really short on resources, you can get away without ascending and leveling Jadefall’s Splendor to level 90, but getting it up to level 80 should be your bare minimum.

If you do find yourself at level 80 with no resources to ascend your weapon further, I’d recommend saving up your resin for materials and grinding leylines until you can. An almost 50% boost to your HP is huge, especially for your support characters.

Jadefall’s Splendor Ascention Material

genshin impact jadefalls spendour

To level up your shiny new weapon, you’re going to need materials. Unfortunately for you, as is the trend for many Dendro users and characters hailing from Sumeru, you’re going to need to save up your fungal spores.

You’ll also need to return to Liyue’s weapon materials domain, and you’ll need to tackle some of the newest enemies in Genshin Impact, the Hilichurl Rogues.

Below is a list of all the materials you’ll need to level your Jadefall’s Splendor from level one to level 90.

  • Mora x225,000
  • A Flower Yet to Bloom x23
  • Treasured Flower x27
  • Wanderer’s Blooming Flower x41
  • Fungal Spores x15
  • Luminescent Pollen x23
  • Crystalline Cyst Dust x27
  • Luminous Sands from Guyun x5
  • Lustrous Stone from Guyun x14
  • Relic from Guyun x14
  • Divine Body from Guyun x6

Gathering the flowers from the Hilichurl Rogues is easy enough. Find them and defeat them until they drop as many as you need.

You can also refine these materials up to the quality you need at any crafting table. You’ll need to spend your resin at the Hidden Palace of Lianshan Formula found in Mingyun Village to collect the various weapon ascention materials, but again you can refine these to the quality you need at the crafting table if you don’t quite get enough.

You can farm as much Mora as you need at leylines found in the overworld, but the biggest pain to collect are the fungal spores.

Sure, they drop from a common enemy, but if you use pyro or electro damage to harvest these materials, you’ll get inactivated fungal nucleus, which won’t work. It also doesn’t help that seven weapons and six characters need fungal spores to level up and ascend. So you’ll be farming a lot of fungi to get Jadefall’s Splendor to level 90.

Jadefall’s Splendor Refinement Progression

When it comes to refinement bonuses, a 44% buff to elemental damage and 6.5 elemental energy every two and a half seconds at refinement five is insane but also unachievable for most players.

In order to reach refinement rank five, you’ll need to get four more Jadefall’s Splendors to refine into the first one. Let’s take a look at what kind of bonuses you can expect for every refinement level for Jadefall’s Splendor.

Refinement Rank Evergy Restored every 2.5 seconds Elemental DMG bonus per 1000 max HP
1 4.5 0.3% (up to 12%)
2 5 0.5% (up to 20%)
3 5.5 0.7% (up to 28%)
4 6 0.9% (up to 36%)
5 6.5 1.1%(up to 44%)

If you are able to refine your Jadefall’s Splendor up to refinement rank five, then you’ll be looking at an incredibly powerful weapon indeed.

However, that’s just not feasible for the vast majority of players. You will be looking at spending several hundreds of primogems at least in order to get four additional Jadefall’s Splendor’s, so unless you’re okay with whaling to get them, you’ll most likely only pull the one weapon, if that.

This then begs the question, is it worth refining Jadefall’s Splendor if you can, or is it better to equip a refinement rank one weapon across multiple characters? Personally, I would choose to equip multiple refinement rank one weapons to different characters, mainly because characters that scale off of HP are so common.

Jadefall’s Splendor really helps your supports shine, so unless you have the resources or want one really powerful support in particular, I’d recommend leaving this weapon at refinement rank one and ascending its level up to 90.

Characters Who Benefit from Jadefall’s Splendor



Considering Jadefall’s Splendor is Baizhu’s signature weapon, I’d be a little concerned if it didn’t work well for him.

Because all of Baizhu’s abilities scale off of his HP, this weapon will give him a huge boost and help combat his energy recharge problems. It’s little wonder that this is the best weapon you can equip on Baizhu when it seems it was made to enhance every piece of his kit.

With this weapon, you’ll get plenty of healing and shields, and you’ll also get maximum usage out of the Primordial Jade Regalia effect. I’d recommend running this with the Ocean-Hued Clam set for a full healer build, though if you’re looking for a Dendro support, the Deepwood memories set would also work wonders here.

Sangonomiya Kokomi

As another catalyst healer who scales from HP, of course, we’d see the Watatsumi Island Divine Priestess make an appearance.

As Jadefall’s Splendor has the same base stats as Kokomi’s signature weapon Everlasting Moonglow, both are viable weapons to use. Just like Baizhu, the Ocean-Hued Clam artifact set will work best on Kokomi for healing, and with the damage and ER bonus, you may actually be able to hit fairly hard with Kokomi as well as heal any damage that comes your way.



Who would have guessed that the only other catalyst healer, Barbara, would work well with Jadefall’s Splendor? It will boost Barbara’s low base HP significantly, and the extra ER is great to keep her elemental burst available whenever you need it.

Though Barbara’s healing output may not be as high as Baizhu or Kokomi’s, and she would benefit from a weapon like Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers for the passive benefit slightly more than Jadefall’s Splendor’s, if you’re stuck for healers and still have this 5-star weapon laying around, this will be a fantastic match.

How Does Jadefall’s Splendor Weigh Up to Other Catalysts?

If you’re on the fence as to whether or not you want to pull for this weapon, it is important to compare it to other weapons that may be easier to obtain or build before making a decision. Here are a few of the popular alternatives to Jadefall’s Splendor that might work better for you and your wallet.

Everlasting Moonglow (5-Star)

everlasting moonglow

Everlasting Moonglow is another 5-star catalyst, and it has the exact same base stats as Jadefall’s Splendor.

The only difference (aside from design) is its passive ability. Everlasting Moonglow will greatly improve your healing bonus percentage, so if you’re looking for a fully dedicated healer who can’t shield, this may be a better alternative to Jadefall’s Splendor.

Everlasting Moonglow will also increase a character’s attack damage and allow normal attacks to restore elemental energy 12 seconds after using an elemental burst.

In terms of ascention and refinement, you’ll be looking at the same sorts of costs for both Jadefall’s Splendor and Everlasting Moonglow, so if you’re torn between the two, choose the one that fits your healing playstyle more.


  • More healing potential than Jadefall’s Splendor
  • Better for healers who can’t also shield


  • Being another 5-Star weapon, this will still be expensive to ascend and refine.

Favonius Codex (4-star)

favonius codex

Many people compare Jadefall’s Splendor and the Favonius Codex as the best weapon for Baizhu, largely because Baizhu is so hungry for Energy Recharge.

Favonius Codex will give you an absolute ton of Energy Recharge, which allows you to focus purely on HP stats on your artifacts. That is the only real benefit to equipping this weapon over Jadefall’s Splendor, as well as the availability of the weapon, making it easier to build fully.

As the Favonius Codex is available on all banners at all times, you are more likely to be able to ascend it up to refinement rank five than you are on Jadefall’s Splendor. Though this still doesn’t make it as powerful as Jadefall’s Splendor in terms of raw power, it does boost your ER even more, which is fantastic for characters like Baizhu and Sangonomiya Kokomi.


  • More Energy Recharge than you’ll ever need
  • as a 4-star weapon, it’s cheaper and easier to build and refine


  • It doesn’t help much with healing output
  • Offers fewer benefits than Jadefall’s Splendor

Prototype Amber (4-Star, Free-to-Play)

prototype amber

Prototype Amber is one of the best free-to-play alternatives to Jadefall’s Splendor. It has a high base HP stat for a 4-star weapon, just 8.3% less than Jadefall’s Splendor at level 90, and the passive ability to generate energy and heal your party after using an elemental burst is amazing value for such a cheap weapon. The best part is that the Prototype Amber is completely free-to-play friendly.

You can forge a Prototype Amber at any blacksmith for 50 white iron chunks, 50 crystal chunks, 500 Mora, and one Nothlander Catalyst Billet.

This means that it is so easy to get your Prototype Amber to refinement level five, boosting that energy and HP gain by a decent chunk. If you have any of the catalyst healers above but didn’t manage to pull any fancy weapons for them, Prototype Amber is the perfect alternative.


  • A forgeable weapon, so it is easy to refine and is free-to-play friendly
  • lots of healing and energy generation


  • Slightly weaker than Jadefall’s Splendor
  • The Northlander Catalyst Billets can be a pain to farm if you don’t already have them.

Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers (3-Stars)

thrilling tales of dragons slayers

This is a weapon you most likely have loads of just gathering dust in your inventory, but it is so perfect for pure healers like Barbara.

Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers gives HP percentage as a substat, and though it’s significantly lower than Jadefall’s Splendor, it is definitely better than nothing. The real value is in its passive ability, especially at refinement level five.

When you switch characters with this weapon equipped to any character in your party, the character entering the field will have their attack increased for ten seconds. At refinement level five, this attack increase is 48%. For a three-star weapon that we likely all have multiple copies of, this is an amazing boost.


  • Huge attack boost at refinement level five
  • Very easy to refine and level, being a three-star weapon
  • Has HP as a substat


  • The stat increases aren’t as large as Jadefall’s Splendor
  • If you weren’t paying attention, you may have used these to level up other weapons.


Question: What is the best way to get Jadefall’s Splendor?

Answer: The only way you can obtain Jadefall’s Splendor is by wishing on the Epitome Invocation weapon banner when Baizhu is running on one of the character event banners.

Even then, you’re still at the mercy of the Epitomized path mechanic, where if you are very unlucky, you’ll pull two other 5-star weapons before you get Jadefall’s Splendor.

Question: Do I need Baizhu to use Jadefall’s Splendor?

Answer: No, you do not need to have Baizhu in order to use Jadefall’s Splendor to its full potential. Just because it is considered Baizhu’s signature weapon, it does not mean that you need Baizhu to run it effectively. Other characters like Sangonomiya Kokomi and Barbara can both use Jadefall’s Splendor with no problems.

Question: Is Jadefall’s Splendor the best catalyst weapon?

Answer: That entirely depends on which characters you play it on and what you’re looking for in a weapon. If you want a weapon that boosts a character’s HP percentage and energy recharge to an insane degree, then yes, Jadefall’s Splendor is going to be one of, if not the best, catalyst weapons you can use.

However, if you’re looking to build a main DPS catalyst character like the Wanderer, you’re going to be better off using a catalyst like Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds, which will increase your CRIT rate and elemental damage. So in order to consider Jadefall’s Splendor as the best catalyst, you’ll need to find the right situation.


Genshin Impact Jadefall’s Splendor Guide: Conclusion

Jadefall’s Splendor is a great weapon for your dedicated healers and compliments characters like Baizhu perfectly. Not only can it significantly boost the HP and energy recharge of your characters, but it looks good while it does so and is a must-have for any Baizhu main.

That being said, if wishing on the Epitome Invocation weapon banner isn’t your style, some alternative weapons like the Prototype Amber or Favonius Codex may be easier for you to obtain and build to beef up your healers significantly.
