Item Story

A strangely-shaped spear made by Kitain Bunsou for his own unique style of spearmanship.
Its massive weight makes it extremely unwieldy in untrained hands.
But in the hands of an expert, it is capable of unleashing great destructive power.

In the distant past, Kitain used to be a family that hunted the Tatarigami down.
For many generations, they shouldered the responsibility of serving as the Prefects of Yashiori.

In the past, there was a certain children's song that circulated widely within Inazuma:
"Arataki of the Front Gate, Iwakura the Successor, Kitain the Serpent, Takamine the Mistsplitter."
These phrases describe the dazzling warriors who once illuminated the earth like comets.
There used to be many other names on the list, but they have since been lost to history.
And having been a demon hunter for so long, it is unavoidable that one might imbibe some of that miasmic, tainted blood.

    Does it’s passive increase hutao’s elemental skill damage?

      It does, but her elemental skill damage is just the Blood Blossom damage, not her elemental absorption (which is really small).
      I’m pretty sure dragon’s bane is much better for Hu Tao if you happen to have one.

          this weapon only really helps with some energy problems and only does 1 hit of extra damage, Thoma is an HP scaler on shield and his damage isn’t amazing although obviously can be invested into, and the em doesn’t help much since he won’t be causing elemental reaction damage most of the time i personally use favonius lance for all the energy, black tassel is best for overall shield strength and staff of homa is BIS because it provides good hp and a nice damage.

    It seems legit ok if you want to use it with Baal.

    If you intend to keep her off field and use her E elemental turret for electro charge/ overload reactions.
    Elemental don’t get influenced by elemental damage stat, so unless you want to have big pp damage just from her ult, you can build Baal to have like 900 EM instead and do 16-20k overloads every ,9 seconds because her E turret is most likely to be the trigger. At R5 she can probably have ult on cooldown with this thing’s passive and electro resonance creating particles and her E creating particles.

      It isn’t really good for her due to the EM substat, but we will have a new free polearm perfect for Raiden in 2.1

        • Reply

        The free polearm is absolutely useless for Raiden. Raiden needs ER, not EM. And the passive only affects burst damage. Raiden’s burst changes her attacks like Childe’s E, so it’s affected by attack damage not burst damage. The polearm is perfect for Xiangling, will be the best f2p option for Hu Tao, and trash for the other spear users.

          which polearm did you talking about dude, maybe relkan refers to “the Catch” polearm and it has ER substats thats coming in patch 2.1

            • Sauce on 3 August 2021 at 2:58 am

            The Catch is only good for her because of ER main stat, but the perk will likely only buff her initial hit on her burst and not the auto attacks that follow. She’ll have better options elsewhere.

            • aether828 on 3 August 2021 at 11:14 am

            Yeah he’s talking about that one “The Catch”. But it will be more suitable for Xiangling and will be broken with the new artifact set.

            • DaZinga on 4 August 2021 at 2:40 am

            the new leaks update says that the auto attacks after her ult which is mussou isshin is considered as her burst damage, so the catch is so perfect for her

      No the prototype with ER is Baal’s best f2p option. Her damage comes from stacking ER.

    I wonder if this could compete with a fav lance on a recharge sands xiangling running the new ER set. They have the same base attack, fav lance provides energy for the entire team but can only be triggered on field… this one gives EM, boosts goober and has a bit of fixed selfish energy regen that can trigger off field.
    So for a reaction xiangling lance would intermitently battery the team while boosting her burst higher (with the set energy conversion), and kitain would lower her ER in exchange for EM for higher reaction numbers while still somewhat maintaining some self battery effect from the passive… I’ll have to wait for the math chads to do their thing, I can’t handle this 🙁

    damn, this is a decent ftp weapon for pretty much everyone. the previous craftable spears have been lackluster for main dps, with er, or lackluster for elemental characters with obviously physical based passives. this looks really solid on basically every dps spear user except for xiao (F)

        1. we she did pull a fkn katana out of her chest it seems pretty obvious plus the new 5 star weapons are a sword and a bow not a polearm so I’m 90% sure she will be a sword user and pls don’t make her a polearm user we already have a lot of them

            • Aerious on 17 July 2021 at 4:53 am

            wdym we have too many polearm users? we only have 4 rn. There are way more sword users thn polearm.

            • Hurty on 17 July 2021 at 10:24 am

            Raiden pulling a sword out of her chest isn’t really a good indication of her weapon type considering a weapon switcher like Childe already exists.

            Besides, there’s only 5 weapon types in-game. It’s inevitable that characters will eventually overlap. If Raiden does end up being a Polearm user, she’d actually be unique at the time of release since we don’t have an Electro Polearm user at all yet.

            • DannyC on 17 July 2021 at 10:46 am

            That scene could very well be a recycled animation from her burst. So every time you burst she pulls out this boob sword, does something, and you never see it again.

            Yanfei pulls out a scale staff during her burst animation. It was also seen in her trailer. But she doesn’t actually use it.

            • isu_ken on 17 July 2021 at 12:26 pm

            yeah. and moreover
            Inazuma is also inspired by Japan and Katana is basically their identity. So it would really disappoint me if she became a polearm user. Although mihoyo might not want Baal to have the same identity as Keqing(electro sword user) so they might really make her a polearm.

            • coccwrench on 17 July 2021 at 4:34 pm

            bruh, dont we have 8 sword characters already? if anything, adding an electro polearm would be better since there are only 5 polearm users. If she was sword, she would just be better Keqing.

    Did noone considder that this weapon might be strong on Xiao? With the resent EM changes, this thing gives Xiao everything he needs. Energy (doen’t solve the problem but helps) EM (If you run Xiao for reactions with something that can apply elements off field this does a lot of dmg) Obviously Deathmatch/Black cliff will still outperfom it to some degree, but as a f2p weapon this thing is realy strong. (Not even mentioning that this thing is interesting for national team xiangling, if you dont have Dragonbane or something better)

    This weapon might be a trap imo. Nothing special couse it is worse than Favonius(no energy for team, only for user, em base stat not as good as energy recharge one for energy hungry charasters) you can use it if you dont have favonius but isnt it better to spend all your billlets for crescent wich is trully unique and almost a 5* weapon for phys main dps charasters?
    Man i look for all new craftable weapons and only bow looks good for main dps archer. Kinda dissapointed we have tons of goood bows for them allready.

      Xiangling likes EM and ER. Generally she’s on a team with Bennett and that’s where she gets Atk.

      If you’re using Prototype Starglitter, you could use EM sands, and if you’re using this weapon “Kitain Cross Spear” you could use ER sands.

      I think they would both have similar performance.

      Depends on your build and team for her.
      • burst vape with Xingqiu = go with this new spear (although Dragons Bane is better IF u have it)
      • burst no reaction = Prototype Starglitter (for ER)
      • normal attacks = Crescent Pike

      TBH you don’t need ER for Xiangling when in a team with Bennett. Just using his skill on cd is enough to charge Xiangling

        Even if you do pair her with bennet, you still need some ER for xiangling. Since a lot of team comps usually rely on xiangling’s burst in endgame content.

        From my personal experience i use xiangling+ dragonsbane w/ reverse vape xiangling-childe/xingqiu + bennet + sucrose, it’s still important to get her ER around 140-150% if you want to use her in spiral abyss. Since energy funneling via bennet with ER below that could take a while and the enemies aren’t exactly forgiving. But if it’s only for the overworld then, yeah you don’t need much ER

          Yeah, even in a team with Bennett and ER sands she doesn’t always have her burst ready when I need it and I have to do some particles funneling with Bennett. Since this spear has an EM substat and gives the owner ER even off-field, which is where XL stays most of the time, it’s looking like one of her best choices for vape teams. Even the energy drain is not too bad, since you can just use your Q before guoba’s flames hit the opponent (although you have to make sure it does eventually hit one, otherwise no particle generation). With this spear and Bennett you might even be able to run a EM sands, assuming you have enough ER from substats
