If a character below level 10 equips both weapon sets in Heart of the Mists and then returns to PvE, they will retain the ability to weapon swap for as long as they keep the second set equipped.
Revenant legend swapping count as weapon swapping for "on weapon swap" sigils, but not for other weapon swap mechanics such as Brutality
  • Rearranging or equipping a different set of weapons is not the same as swapping. This can be done outside of combat, but never during combat. It never triggers on-swap effects.
  • Weapon swap cooldown is not affected by alacrity or any cooldown reducing effects such as adrenal mushroom.
  • Sigils that trigger off a weapon swap do not need to be the weapon that gets swapped to trigger.
