Item Story

The favored barbed spear of a famous Inazuman bandit.
It was originally a harpoon used to catch fish, but it was also very handy in battle.
They say that he even pierced the enchanted, sword-armed puppet before carrying it off.

"Haha! Once, I was the master of this ship, the 'Seiraimaru.'"
"I commanded over ten ships, and they called me the Deathless Oni of Seirai."
"Now, I am but a leaf floating upon the waves."
"If not for Janome and the people marooned on those islands,"
"Forget raising our sails again — I doubt I would have managed to make it back to my home shores."
"And yet Seirai now looks like this."
"There is no longer any place for me in the Inazuman Islands."
"Even that naggy, fretful old shrine maiden is gone..."

The bandit named Ako Domeki's voice was thick with emotion. Then he said...
"Hey, Janome! I'm now the freest man in the whole wide world!"
"Aunt Shrine Maiden! Didn't you see that you wanted to go see the world?"
"You know, go some place else, like that Kamuna guy or that Konbumaru you always talk about?"
"You know what? Let me, Ako Domeki Zaemon, go in your stead!"
"Let me go see what the edge of the world really looks like!"

"We'll meet again where all ship routes end!"
"And when we do, it'll be my turn to tell you all about these distant lands!"

    What is better for Baal? This one or skyward?

      According to IWinToLose, skyward is better by abit but if you lack the crit rate on Baal, consider the catch.

      IWinToLose has some questionable advice lmao. Go for the Catch, Skyward’s passive is useless and doesn’t work well with Raiden’s burst.

      There’s a fully written artifact/weapon guide if you need some help.

    Is this weapon permanently available? I have other commitments at the moment and I don’t feel like rushing into the fishing quest

      Maybe take time to do the fishing event for the Moonstringer fishing rod at least. You can take your time grinding the fish for thecatch, but try to get the fishing rod from event cuz it can be used in all 3 zones. This way you won’t have to grind the rods for the individual zones.

    For those wondering if The Catch r5 is better than Skyward Spine r1 for Baal here is a definitive test video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ow-17itLsPA

    Unbiased test on abyss floor 12 against same enemies and using same artifact set.

      Is there a reason he doesn’t show his ER throughout the entire video?

      def get this for raiden, its the best f2p weapon for her if u cant get her weapon, if for xiangling, id probably stick with dragins bane

      this is one of raiden’s bis 4* weapons, so if u dont have engulfing lightning this is the second best choice (although in my opinion this is the best weapon for her)

      I honestly think this weapon also works great on Xiangling, you especially if you play her with the new artifact set that increases your burst damage even more which is all you want on her anyway. Elemental Mastery isn’t bad but you can get more than enough of that from sub stats.

      this is tied with homa for xiangling’s best in slot… depends on who you like more really, but if you only care about damage this is better on xiangling than raiden
