How to Get the Summit Shaper

The sword is only obtainable through a Weapon Event Wish. The last one was in December 2020, but keep your hopes up. Summit Shaper is returning this coming Wednesday with the 1.5 patch update.

"Epitome Invocation" Weapon Event Wish will be available starting April 28 at 12 a.m. ET to May 18, 7 p.m. ET. Along with Memory of Dust (Catalyst), the Summit Shaper sword will be receiving a huge drop-rate boost. The reason why people are excited to obtain the Summit Shaper is what we will be discussing in this article.

Characters That Work Well With Summit Shaper

The sword may be picky because shield longsword characters are the ones who can maximize its potentials. Thus it has received limited attention to players who use these specific characters. Albedo and Kequing are the ones who are known to fit the sword best. Kaeya and Ayaka can also use it, but the general opinion is that these two can be stronger with other swords.

Yet Summit Shaper is still a five-star sword with decent basic statistics. If you do happen to get this sword in hand, use it well!
