Item Story

A spine that holds up the sky.
The true companion of the Anemo Archon never wavered in its desire to protect the land of wind.
This unshakeable resolve sustained the wind dragon through its mortal battle against its vile nemesis.

In olden times, the shadow dragon Durin, covetous of the peace Mondstadt enjoyed, came forth to defile the land.
Durin's black wings blotted out the sky, releasing clouds of toxic fumes,
So much so that even the thousand winds could not hold their pestilence and rot at bay,
And thus fell black rain from the skies, the din of their downpour drowning the cries and groans of the people.
The Anemo Archon was awakened by the sound of their agony, and his heart was pierced by their despair.
So he summoned Dvalin to his side, and shrouding themselves in storm, they pierced through the poisoned skies.

The great dragon plunged in with a cry, tearing a swathe through the noxious nimbus the shadow dragon had created.
Following his wings came a great, swift whirlwind that destroyed those venomous clouds.
Dvalin seized the poisonous dragon in his mighty claws, ascending to heights that even clouds could not fathom.
The poisonous rain had scattered as the clouds had been left behind, and the burning skies became the dragons' battleground.

At last the wind dragon's razor fangs pierced his foe's throat, and his great claws tore out its corrupted heart.
The sinners' creation, filled with eternal regret, fell from the spotless skies and fell to ruin upon a snowy peak.
That fierce battle in the distant skies had thus defended the people of the Anemo Archon.
But at the moment of his triumph, the venomous ichor of his foe had flowed between his teeth and into his guts.

The pain withered bone and marrow, and in his agony the great wind dragon curled up in the depths of an ancient ruin.
...Nursing his wounds, Dvalin still believed that one day, he would be reawakened.
He would again pierce the heavens, scatter the darkness, and sing to the sounds of the lyre of the Anemo Archon, his dear friend.

    used her on xiangling and loved it, pulled hu tao last night and was kinda disappointed when I found out about staff of homa, but honestly, this spear works really well with her. i am only wl5 and I haven’t raised hu tao all the way yet cause I’m lacking materials but so far hu tao does like up to 5k which is amazing!

    Dont sleep on this weapon, the 40% atk bonus can crit, if your build has a lot of atk crit damage and crit rate, this weapon will also scale really well with your build, basically the more strong you are, the more strong the weapon effect will be , i tested with a meme build on xiao with atk% cup, with 40% crit rate and 170 crit damage ( just to see how much i could hit) the weap was giving me 4k+ (effect only) when the effect crits . 4k each 2 seconds… i was really impressed

    Will Hu Tao be good for this spear?

      I feel like it would be great because Hu Tao requires lots of base attack for her E to work properly, this has one of the highest base ATK in game

      Crit rate + ER + attack speed. I’ll be good. Only spear that give attack speed which is very good tho.
      Might not be as good as Jade or Deathmatch but you got a lot of atk !

        It’s most probably better than Death match. Just look at the base attack difference it’s Insane.
        +You get decent crit rate, Ultimate Spam, attack speed for faster plunge attack cancling + that 50% attack passive will also work as you are attack cancelling
