The Xiphos’ Moonlight is a 4-star Sword weapon added in Genshin Impact Version 3.1. This support weapon empowers characters who scale off of Elemental Mastery, giving your team a huge boost in Energy Recharge. This great weapon will make a great fit for any of your sword characters who love elemental reactions like Vaporize.
To obtain the Xiphos’ Moonlight, the weapon must be featured as an available 4-star weapon on the Weapon Event Wish banner. Unlike most 4-star weapons in the game, the Xiphos’ Moonlight is only available to pull through this method, meaning you cannot obtain this weapon in the Standard Event Wish or Character Event Wish banners. Currently, the Wandering Evenstar is not available yet.

Is the Xiphos’ Moonlight any good?
The Xiphos’ Moonlight is a very good support weapon for characters who rely on Elemental Mastery in their kits. The Energy Recharge you gain from this weapon is significant and is spread across your entire team, making this a great option to bolster the support capabilities of characters like Kazuha or Kuki Shinobu.
This weapon will also likely perform well on Dendro characters such as the Dendro Traveler and upcoming Nahida. Note: if you have multiple weapons at the same time, the buffing effect of this weapon will stack. It’s recommended not to refine this weapon and spread the buffing effects throughout your entire team.
