Item Story

Rumored to be a legendary polearm of Liyue.
The polearm features a dragon motif that runs from handle to tip.
It used to have a dragon-shaped wooden sheath,
but now it no longer needs to contain its might.
It shall pierce through anything that stands in its way.

It is said that when Kunwu forged this Pole, he used a dragon's spine for the haft and a dragon's claw for the tip.
Hence the weapon's body is unbreakable, while its tip is sharp beyond compare — and gleams with a dragon's malice.

There once was a dragon slayer of unimaginable strength and courage, who defied the ocean's wrath and fought fiercely against the monstrosities it harbored within.
Many years after the dragon slayer had disappeared without a trace, the hopeless sound of a dragon's cry could be still be heard resounding throughout the ocean.

The dragon slayer became an urban legend. In the end, both the legend and the dragon-slaying Pole were lost.
Freed at last from the shackles of its past, it displayed the full force of its ferocity once and for all, as if to mark the dragon's return to the ocean where it belonged.

    Hu Tao’s best strat is spamming charged attacks (even without C1), and this is the best weapon for this if you don’t have Homa.
    Xingqiu ult + Hu Tao’s Witch of Flames + spam charged attacks, cancelling with jumps (if you don’t have C1). Perma vaporize (ult will proc vaporize too) = huge damage over 9 secs.

    Pretty good weapon for support Xiangling. The damage bonus works when she’s out of the field, so Guoba and Pyronado will hit harder regardless

      I think her burst will be good, if you focus on vaporize.

    Seeing other 4 star polearms are kinda bad for hutao i wonder if this’ll be good?

      I don’t think so since Hu Tao (aside from HP) needs high base ATK to maximize her Elemental Skill. If its a 4 star weapon I would suggest the Royal Spear since it gives HIGH base ATK as well as ATK% substat and the passive CRIT rate is good. Its also easy to get since its in paimons shop. I guess this polearm is fine to use on Hu Tao if you dont have any better alternatives

        bruh r u serious……………………..
        hu tao does need high base ATK but u need over 40k HP to maximize the effect of E. I mean yes u get the natural disadvantage of a elemental mastery substat but its still better than ATK substat cuz ATK substat in any kind is entirely shit for hu tao. Even reconsider deathmatch cuz the skill on deathmatch is pretty much useless on hu tao too.
        so if ur pairing hu tao with xingqiu (so far the probable choice) or in anyway u plan to use her to react with other elements this one is honestly the best, especially at higher refine levels.

          Dragonsbane will be monstrous for Hu Tao if you will comp her in with Xingqiu. just give xingqiu a lavawalker’s set and you’re golden.. at refinement 4+ i thi9nk this is miles better than the deathmatch.. (if you bought the deathmatch before realizing this weapon is better like me. use it on zhongli if you have him)

            3 star black tassel can work better because of 46% hp

        “I don’t think so since Hu Tao needs high base ATK to maximize her Elemental Skill”

        Bro, you seriously can’t be serious right now. That is SO WRONG it’s not even funny.

          Bruh, even with 454 base atk from dragon’s bane you will need around 40k hp to reach atk bonus cap from her E. Realistically speaking, with hp-pyro-cd artifacts, your hp will just be around 30k. High base atk isnt necessary if your artifacts can’t even reach out the max hp needed for the buff.

      actually I think it’s good for her if play correctly. even with this base atk, you will still need 40k HP to get max effect with E lvl 8. If you pair her with xingqi, her vaporize doesnt consume the whole mark so you will has the bonus EM for melt and 20% dmg for her whole E.
      She isn’t out yet so it’s still to know what fit her best

          they released zhongli and Hutao both scaling with HP so I wouldnt be suprised if we would get a HP scaling claymore user in the future considering that the bell also buff all-dmg while having shield. but right now, it’s pretty much useless
