Jean is an underrated gem in the world of Genshin Impact. With unmatched crowd control, solid healing and damage, and plenty of potential for elemental reactions, he has a lot going for him. When paired with a character who can land consistent elemental attacks, Jean can perform combos with her teammates and easily turn the tide of battle. With one move, he can launch a powerful Anemo attack to defeat nearby enemies while keeping his team alive.
Available in both standard and limited time banners, Jean is one of the easiest five-star draws in the game. That doesn’t make him any less of an asset, however, and he’s a very capable support when equipped with a suitable sword. Even without an officially released weapon to maximize the potential of his gear, there is a wide variety of swords throughout Teyvat that can still fulfill his needs and make him a force to be reckoned with.
8 Skyrider Sword
Energy recharge is a very useful stat for Jean, whose usefulness is directly correlated to how quickly she can build her elemental blast. While his normal attacks can help his teammates’ health creep up their HP bars, his outbursts are what really help the team defend itself. With this in mind, it was safe to say that the energy replenishment substat on this three-star sword would be of great help to Grand Master’s acting.
In addition, this sword increases the user’s attack stats and movement speed when using elemental explosions. Since Jean’s healing reduces his attack, this means more damage and more support for teammates. All things considered, this is a great weapon for players who only have access to three-star swords.
7 Black sword
This four-star weapon works well for teams that give Jean plenty of time on the field, as it increases normal and charged attack damage while also letting the user recover health whenever they land a critical hit.
While this regeneration can only occur every five seconds, it can help maximize Jean’s effectiveness when she’s an active character, especially since it’s infused with crit rate substats. Equipped with this weapon, all archons will be furious to drain Jean’s health to zero.
With Jean’s healing scaling to her attack stat, The Flute is a great four-star choice for her. Its substat is attack, and increases attack by 41.3 percent if fully up and leveled. As an added bonus, the enhanced version of this weapon will deal 200 percent of the attack as damage to nearby enemies, given its effect is triggered.
Luckily, it’s relatively easy to trigger. It only takes five hits to an enemy for an extra wave of damage to take effect, with one hit recorded by the weapon every half a second. This aspect of the weapon allows Jean to clear enemies while easily keeping her team going.
5 Royal Long Sword
Another four-star sword with attack as its substat, the Royal Longsword perfectly matched Jean’s equipment. That means a lot of the same healing and damage. However, the most tempting aspect of this weapon is the fact that it increases the crit rate.
At rank five refinement, landing enough shots at the enemy allowed this weapon to increase Jean’s crit rate by up to 80 percent. This was a huge stat increase, and it only became stronger when combined with an artifact that increased critical damage. Since this great benefit only applies if he is in the field and defeating the enemy, it is much more suitable for Jean DPS than support Jean.
4 Rancor prototype
This four-star weapon is accessible to new players and veterans alike, as it is available as an adventure ranked reward and through forging. The ease with which this blade is obtained is helpful as it makes quick upgrades, which is ideal because the Rancor Prototype has a simple but powerful enhancement effect: Smashed Stone. At rank five, each normal or charged attack would increase attack and defense by eight percent for six seconds. The stat boost is even capable of building up to four stacks, each of which can occur once every .3 seconds.
Due to Jean’s quick slashes and attack scale healing, she is one of the best characters to wield this weapon. In addition, his physical damage substat is easy to take advantage of because his normal attacks and attacks are physical.
3 Favonius Sword
Besides matching both of Jean’s outfits, the four-star Favonius Sword is a great weapon in the hands of any support character. Energy replenishment sub-stats help him build fast, sequential elemental blasts, which result in multiple elemental reactions and healing for his team.
His bursts only formed faster when he was on the field, as the critical hit resulted in a high probability of his six regenerating energies. This can be a godsend for those desperate times when Jean is an active character and players are frantically trying to get the rest of the team to heal; The extra energy regeneration that this sword offers greatly speeds up the process.
2 Aquila Favonia
This five-star sword physical damage bonus is perfect for Jean’s DPS. Working in tandem with its already massive base attack, the 20 to 40 percent increase in attack that this weapon offers causes the user to deal consistent, hefty damage to enemies throughout Teyvat.
High damage isn’t the only thing this sword can deal; every 15 seconds, this sword scales the user’s attack to regenerate a large amount of HP. By doing so, he even unleashed a wave of damage to surrounding enemies that was equivalent to 350 percent attack at rank five repair. This effect makes Jean an almost unkillable opponent with the potential to clear enemy lines alone.
1 Sky Sword
The extremely high base attack of this five-star sword paired with its useful energy replenishment stat to make a sword worthy of Jean, the acting Grand Master of the Knights of Favonius. Its refinement effect provides a continuous increase in crit rate, and it provides a powerful boost to movement speed, attack speed, and damage when using the user’s elemental blast.
In addition to this sword’s powerful base attack which ensures that Jean’s healing is strong enough to support the troops, the various buffs on offer make her an unstoppable, high-damage war machine. This weapon is a boon to his defensive abilities, his elemental reaction power, his attack effectiveness, and his general ability to provide support to his team.
