Item Story

A blade that thirsts after fresh blood will be awakened by its scent.
Those who possess, wield, and nourish it will keep killing.
Till even a pure soul is blackened by bloodshed...

There once was a bright white knight, who longed ever for the path of justice.
Clad in burnished armor, a mirror-sheen sword hung from his hip.
Wherever there was injustice, man-eating beast, or fire in the distance,
The Knight would ride up in haste, to cut, slash, and pierce.
Following the teachings of the Wolf Pup, who taught him chivalry, justice and swordsmanship,
He cut, slashed, and pierced them from head to toe...
Till justice had run its course, and the monster moved no more.

"I began to lose myself in cutting, slashing, and piercing."
"When my blade's edge met my foe's flesh, it sent a tingle up my spine."
"Ah. This must be the feeling of justice getting its dues."
"As long as I cut, slash, and pierce the evil in this twisted world,"
"Someday, someday, it shall all be cleansed."

"O, foolish knight, slaughter in the name of justice is slaughter still."
"Nay. Slaughter in the name of justice is justice."

Cut. Slash. Pierce. Thus will you see justice done!
Though the white flowers the maidens offer you should be bloodied black, though your sword should no longer gleam bright,
Though your fair countenance should turn hideous, and you should be forced to don an iron mask,
Though those you defend cannot understand you, cease never!

And so, the black-stained knight persisted on his path, pursuing monsters in the name of justice,
Until he came upon an ancient, ruined realm, where he discovered the ultimate injustice...

      if you want to use ayato as sub DPS (elm skill), i think it’s his BiS as 4 star weapon.

      Mainly, Ayato’s damage comes from his normal atks, so the 20% passive is pretty useful for him. For the substat, he needs higher crit rate for them to crit more often. The base attack is quite decent as well compared to other f2p swords.

    do y’all think its worth to refine it more? I already have it at R2 and I’m not sure if I want to continue refining it to try for R5. (I use it on Keqing btw, I sadly don’t have either Mistsplitter and or Jade Cutter)

      I would suggest not buying battle pass, cuz 5 star swords will outdamagi this thing aniways only then if u wont roll on weapong banner than yeah this this is super good

        It is only lower in terms of crit rate and base dmg, as well as 12 percent elementary bonus less. Other than that this is the same as ayato BiS. I would say this can technically be better as there is no condition. The BiS require u to attack with other member for 5 times normal attack.

    Given certain implications about another character from recent leaks that I won’t spoil here because they’re unrelated, does anyone think this “black-stained knight” character mentioned here could show up in the future, either more prominently or in-person?

      He literally said: “If Abyss be thy name, I pledge you my loaylty”. That means, he will be one of the Abyss Bosses.

        Childe exists.

        Besides, abyss is not the antagonist. In fact, mihoyo don’t like having antagonist, their story writers said themselves that there’s only good people, but good is defined differently. Perspective changes everything. The bloodstained knight is someone that just cannot let celestia do such injustice, so he pledged loyalty to the people that suffered from celestia: Abyss.
