Kagura's Verity is the newest 5-star weapon added to Genshin Impact as part of the 2.5 update. While the Catalyst is themed for Yae Miko, other characters might be able to make use of it. In this article, Gurugamer is going to find out if the catalyst can be used on any characters other than Yae.

1. Stats of Kagura's Verity

Kagura's Verity is probably the best Catalyst for DPS Yae to date - it is the first 5-star to have CRIT DMG as sub-stat. Below are the stats of the weapon at Level 90 and Refinement 1:

  • Base Attack: 608
  • Crit DMG: 66.2%
  • Passive: Gains the Kagura Dance effect when using an Elemental Skill, causing the Elemental Skill DMG of the character wielding this weapon to increase by 12% for 16s. Max 3 stacks.  Users gain a 12% All Elemental DMG Bonus when they possess 3 stacks.

Overall, Kagura's Verity is pretty much designed to work with Yae's kit, as her Elemental Skill Sesshou Sakura has only a 4 second cooldown. Players should be able to trigger all three stacks of Kagura dance before the duration runs out.

This brings out the full potential of the weapon, with yet another Elemental DMG boost on top. Furthermore, Sesshou Sakura (fox turrets) also get stronger the more you place, amplifying DPS massively.

2. Which characters can use Kagura's Verity?

Outside of Yae Miko, Lisa is probably the only one who could use this 5 star catalyst. In fact, this Catalyst can even boost Lisa to the next tier.

Yae Miko and Lisa
Yae Miko and Lisa are the only characters who can make use of this catalyst.

Her elemental skill, Violet Arc, has a cooldown of only one second. Players can hit enemies with it to stack the conductive debuff up to 3 times, which is conveniently the same number of stacks for Kagura's Verity passive to max out. Afterward, you can hold the skill to deal massive Electro damage, with the Elemental and Skill Damage boost from the weapon.

Outside of Lisa, no other characters can hit the 3rd stack of the weapon. Klee, Constellation 4 Sucrose, Constellation 2 Ningguang and Kokomi can hit two stacks of Kagura Dance. While not optimal, players can still use the catalyst on them for the Crit DMG sub-stat.

3. Verdict

Overall, while Kagura's Verity is a powerful weapon that can allow Catalyst users to deal some serious damage, its passive is too niche. Not many characters can bring out the weapon's full potential unless they have a very low cooldown Elemental Skill.

Pull for Kaguya's Verity only if you Like Yae or Lisa and want to main them. Otherwise, high Refinement copies of four-star weapons may provide better synergy and even damage in some cases.

If for some reason you get the weapon without Yae or a high level Lisa, there is still hope. It is possible that miHoYo would release a character who can use this in the future.
