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.

    Dude this weapon was so weak for a 5 star (even worse than some 4 star) but finally it was going to be good on Baal. But now they are giving us “the catch” for free in R5 which makes this weapon obsolete. Its just not acceptable for a 5 star weapon same as the claymore and sword

    Since it has been leaked that during Raiden’s Mosou Isshin her normal and charged attacks count as elemental burst, which weapon in going to be better for her this one or the catch?

      Well the catch is probably her best 4 star weapon by far, But i think if her normal attacks are increased speed why by spine this could be good. Also, Spine’s p[assive crit is always active which is nice, plus the vacum does do good damage.

      I think its said that at R1 spine vs R5 catch they are basically equal. I have gotten 4 spines lol, so I think for me I’ll use spine

      Yeah I’m honestly curious too but if you have Spine at R1 and the Catch at R5 (if it’s an event weapon) then they might be roughly even? But if you have Spine at R2 or higher I think this might be better. idk

    I don’t get why people are saying this weapon was trash before Baal came.
    Xiangling can make very good use of this in the National Team because of it’s ER and High Base ATK.

      • Nice move on how mihoyo make ER stats more valuable on 31 July 2021 at 2:57 pm

      Sinply because ER substat.
      In 2.0, not only Baal kits leak, but we also got a new artifact set that make ER more valuable than ever. For baal case, she can utilize skyward spine the best, more than xiangling. ER substat that gonna be converted to dmg bonus, 12% more aspd, 8% crit rate, bonus dmg per 2s. Everything in this weapon match perfectly with Baal, except aestethic sector.

    Would spine passive work when she’s in burst form?

      It should, her attacks in her burst form are considered normal attacks
