Item Story

In the childhood dreams of Mondstadt, there was a certain breed of floaty flower,
That would grow lushly even amidst the mighty winds, terrible winters and wild whipping ice.

It was unlike ordinary plants, which would be blown away, roots and all, when struck by the powerful gales.
Indeed, this "Windblume"'s roots would grow stronger even as the wind grew wilder.
Today, the rebellion of ordinary mortals against tyranny has long been consigned to festive jests,
And the shape of that flower has grown faint, melding into the lilting lyre-tunes of histories long gone by.

"Let me give you this nameless flower, and may the spring-times you never saw mean nothing to you."
"Pray repay me with hope and a smile, and stand with me to welcome the day when the storms blow no longer."

In the days when a tyrant gazed down upon the common folk from his tower, those who nursed freedom in their breasts would greet each other thusly.
Those who sought courage and dreamed of walking upright wove the unknown, using this as their secret sign.
In those days, a lonely and fragile flower would come into bloom with the wind before slowly blossoming all across the wild mountain ranges.
So too did rootless and indifferent subjects content to go with the flow become proud, fearless heroes.
The frowning lord in the tower grew ever lesser in stature, and could no longer disperse the swelling, raging tide.

"Let me give you this nameless flower, and may she crown us champions, defenders of spring and sky."
"May the dawn be our spirit and follow us into the winds of true freedom."

Atop the ruins of the ancient tower, amidst the cheers, songs, and tears of those who had newly won their freedom.
A red-haired warrior turned his back on the newborn god, hidden like a single raindrop in a tidal wave of humanity.
He was first among those who passed the secret sign of the Windblume amongst themselves, the one who wove threads of dawn throughout the long night.
His name has since been lost to time, but his deeds are still remembered in song.
A thousand years later, another red-haired knight would follow in his footsteps, and bring light to the then-benighted history of the nobility.
Just as the fate of the Windblume is to bloom under great pressure when the need to arise is most desperate,
The fate of this clan will likely never change: they shall ever live in the darkness and bring forth the flame of dawn.

The shape of the Windblume has been lost amidst the flowing winds of time.
In times of peace, its name has become synonymous with love and gladness.
But surely, this must have been the desire of those who walked stalwartly through the darkness...

"The flowers in bloom should represent love, and stand for the coming of spring."
"No more should they signal for rebellion, nor be the sign for banners to be raised..."

    I was thinking, this bow might actually be quite good on Yoimiya in a vape comp, in the same way Dragon’s Bane is great on Hu Tao if you’re pairing her with Xingqiu.

      May be the problem is that Yoimiya attacks too fast and the rain swords can’t keep up, but if the rain swords can keep up it will for sure a good free to play option

        Rainsword’s hydro application is absurdly disgustingly broken, fast enough to braindead vaporize every single HuTao’s zero cooldown charge-attacks spam.
        That and Yoimiya’s pyro application is slow. Even Mona’s decoy (which only applies hydro on 1st, 4th and 5th(explosion)) can keep enemies hydro’d all the time. So hydro application shouldn’t be a problem.
        However, quick-hits with low multiplier per-hit isn’t really ideal for vaporize. 1.5xDmg on one single hit once every 1~2 seconds won’t contribute much to total DPS. This is totally different case from HuTao’s single-hit high multiplier charge that applies pyro(= vaporizes) every single hit without any cooldowns.
        That said, I am F2P and all I have is this, Fav and Stringless so I’m definitely giving it a try, but I’m not expecting much from its EM substat.

    It is true that this isn’t all that great a bow, but as a FTP player I am happy with it. I have a childe that I haven’t done anything with mainly because I haven’t drawn a stringless or even a rust. My Fischl is still using a compound bow for heaven sake. The only resource that I need to obtain is the chains, and one days resin should be enough. Mining and refining regularly has given most players plenty of upgrade crystals.
    So for a days worth of resin I get a “3.9” star weapon that motivates me to do something with my Childe or maybe Amber.

    Windblume Ode’s effect is mistranslated. The right translation is:
    When using an Elemental Skill, receive a boon from the ancient wish of the Windblume, increasing ATK by 32% for 6s.
    Aka: the ATK buff does buff the Elemental Skill.

    The only way i could think a viable build is Burst Childe with 2 piece Hydro + 2 piece nobless with This bow. Basically the old meta Burst then swap in 1.0 Floor 12 Abyss. Other than that it’s pretty shit stats wise. Base attack? not the best. 32% attack on R5 is pretty shit too since Stringless can offer better since it is increasing dmg and not the attack (which will reduce the dmg with % scale). And for main DPS, i would rather take a Rust R1 at level 90 instead of this if i want to build main DPS Fischl or Childe.

    It’s a poorman’s stringless really.

    Even at R1 stringless is better than this bow. It’s not ideal, but if you have nothing else to use, go for it.

    I wouldn’t invest into it tho, that’s wasted resources which are already scarce.

    It’s so bad im considering to not even level it despite x1.5 bonus during this event. If it had energy recharge mainstat then at least you could slap it on some support, but this is just basically EM bow. 32% atak is low to begin with, lasts whooping 6 sec lol and is only useful if you first cast your ele skill and then cast ult on venti and fishl and thats already waste. Terrible.

    Bruh ok, sure the bow isn’t the best but all the people complaining need to remember a few things instead of acting entitled all the time
    1. Not all players (especially new ones) have better options so it’s still nice for new players
    2. We are receiving this for FREE, imagine crying about a free handout not being good enough. Could you imagine if you went to the shopping mall and they were handing out free samples of cheese or something and then you had a meltdown in public because the cheese wasn’t cheesy enough? Grow up.
    3. We are not entitled to having better versions of everything come out all the time, thats how power creep happens which causes the death of many a game.
    4. Not everything will be as bad as you describe it forever. Remember how many people threw a tantrum over zhongli being bad? Well look where he is now, one of the best supports in the game (and not just because of the buffs).
    5. What do you think you are going to achieve by complaining all the time? if this is enough to distress you then go find a different game to play, this community doesn’t need you, the hard working employees at Mihoyo certainly don’t deserve to have people like you, and you don’t deserve to play this game that you take for granted
    6. Stop it.

      >imagine crying about a free handout not being good enough

      >We are not entitled to having better versions of everything come out all the time
      It doesn’t need to powercreep other weapons to be good, Festering desire is a good weapon and didn’t powercreep nothing
      >Remember how many people threw a tantrum over zhongli being bad? Well look where he is now, one of the best supports in the game
      Yes, after a buff changed both skill and passive talents
      >What do you think you are going to achieve by complaining all the time
      Nothing, but as you can complain about others complain we are free to criticize a weapon
      >Stop it
      I won’t and there’s nothing (you) can do about it

      Wow, it’s almost as if Zhongli got buffed because so many people complained. Wow, it’s almost as if the Windblume Festival is much more interesting than the Lantern Rite event because so many people complained. Wow, it’s almost as if complaining actually is a way to tell MiHoYo that we aren’t satisfied, and to tell them how to make change that will benefit both their game and the players.

      Neither. Childe needs offensive bows all the 5 stars are a good options, but the best 4 stars bows for childe are Rust, Prototype and blackcliff.

    People say that this bow is really bad, when it actually isn’t. I’m one of those people who has had Venti since the start of the game and still only has Favonius Warbow for him. I’ve had to use a EM sands for him with reduces a bunch of his damage. This weapon actually will change by build completely, and will help for more damage after I switch him out as well. If you don’t have Stringless or any 5 star bow for Venti, then this will be amazing.

      I agree, this is very much a Venti bow. However, there are better bows for Venti (yes, I understand this is a great F2P option, however I think that festering desire was a good overall option, and thats also a free event wep). However, I don’t see myself using this on any other bow character for now.

      except favonius is still better because you’re mostly not using him for his damage. his relatively low cooldown and energy cost means you can use favonius to battery someone else instead. even then, EM scales poorly on swirl, he benefits more from crit or atk. even even then you can just use blackcliff or even prototype crescent for damage, just headshot once and switch. ‘amazing on him’ is a stretch really

    Pretty disappointing, they were really lazy with both the design and the actual effect. It’s a strictly worse Stringless that can also be replaced by any of the free bows. The design is one of those copy-paste designs, copied from the Compound Bow. It really seems like they just put it together in a few minutes so they can hype players up by giving them another free R5 4* weapon like Festering Desire except it’s absolutely lame in comparison. But it’s free, so I guess we can’t complain…

      Amber is useful, i mean very. You just can’t or DON’T WANT to use her. Every character is useful, you just have to choose which character to invest so that suit your play style.

      Really, i love the game like very much but people like you who deem something useless and projects your opinion to someone else is the reason i hate the community.

      “Amber only useful when she has constellation” No shit. Just build her right you mf piece of shit.

      “Kaeya is shit, I’m gonna roll for Eula or Ayaka” if either of the character is 4 star you would assume it shit too unless they’re like bennet. You only deem something by the star you dammit.

      “Wtf are you ranting this to me!?” Fuck who knows you little shit. I’m assuming you are the very people who only want 5 star characters in your fucking party and not evaluate something objectively.

      Look I’m not Amber main but shit people like you make me very mad.

      If you think I’m being a little shit to you because i don’t have 5 star characters you are very wrong. I have ganyu, xiao, and keqing so shut up.

      I’m very much mad at you and the community.
