How to create a sloped wall in Revit?

A - answer A sloping (slanted, angled, oblique, tilt, diagonal) wall (wall diverted from the vertical axis) can be created in Revit using different methods. You can use curtain walls, you can use wall in-place family, you can use the "Wall by face" function, or you can use wall sweeps and reveals in the wall definition.

Create a 3D solid mass (volume) element in the required shape and then use the Wall by face command to attach the wall to the respective face (by face selection).

An alternative way is to use the composite wall editor and its Wall sweep and Wall reveal functions. You have to prepare the sweep and reveal profiles before you attach them to your original wall - see the yellow and red sections:
