Summit Shaper Breakdown
Summit Shaper boosts shield by 20% by which can go up to 40% at max level. Landing an attack on an opponent increases the ATK by 4%(8% at max LVL) for 8s. This passive can be stacked up to 5 times and is one of the major reasons Summit Shaper is an offensive powerhouse. Additionally, when the character wielding the weapon is shielded, this ATK increase effect is increased by 100%. When fully maxed, it has 608 base ATK and also increases the ATK by 49.6%.
Summit Shaper is perfect for Geo characters as they can abuse its shielding attribute. However, only Albedo, as of now, is a Geo sword user. Apart from Albedo, players that run Keqing can try an Electro element base build that utilizes Summit Shaper. It is an offensive build that packs a lot of punch.
