Item Story

"Mein Fräulein, not one tear of yours was shed in vain during your pilgrimage."
Thus spoke Ozvaldo Hrafnavins when the Prinzessin's journey in the land of ever-silence came to a close.

In their long journey across space and time, the Prinzessin der Verurteilung and her Night-Severing Raven bore witness to countless stories and their endings, each a raindrop that flows at the journey's end into a bitter sea. Every young man's rage at injustice must turn to calm. Every passion must be ground into dust by the march of time, before being turned to wild paranoia upon that inverted, ancient tree. Even the branch of the tree of time upon which the great and glorious Reman Republic nested would be cut off in the end, such that the nation founded by the other twin child of the wolves might rule.
Everything in this world must pass through the doorway of their destruction unto the future kingdom of the Prinzessin. In the silence of her pitch-dark Nachtgarten would they find a place to slumber.
Even so, when Droctfult fell at the hands of the Beast of the World, having fought for the dreams of a young man and the rain that had yet to fall, and was torn to shred by its claws, the Prinzessin still began to tear up.

"Hearken well, Ozvaldo Hrafnavins. The Sovereign of the Immernachtreich weepeth not."
She went on, "Who among those born into this world are not burdened with sin? When the clock sounds for the time of judgment once more, the skirt of night shall descend once more. Then, the writhing struggles of man and beast trapped within will be naught but a midnight waltz."

"It is as you say, mein Fräulein."
"Hmph. As well you should know."
"Well then, mein Fräulein, I wonder if you still recall this tale..."

Two of the three bright moons that caused the perfumed sea of the primordial universe to shine and stirred up the beasts of the Arianrhod Realm were shredded by a sword that tore the horizon asunder, left in smithereens too small even for the mystical sight of the Prinzessin.
Or perhaps this was what happened: the bright moons that once illuminated a universe, brought dreams and song to the sweet sleepers of three worlds, and awakened a deep longing in the beast-herds that wandered betwixt dawn and dusk — they were at last rendered dust. But even so, they too wished to remain within the eternal, shining gaze of the Prinzessin, bringing their subtle light unto more lands still.

Indeed. A Prinzessin does not shed tears.
That was merely a natural secretion from her royal eyes, affronted as they were by the untimely intrusion of those impudent grains of sand.

    Should have been earnable through an event and not a wish only limited weapon.

      That would be even worse because after the event ends the weapon will be gone forever and new players will be SOL

    Mitternacht’s Waltz vs Rust vs Compound Bow?
    What would be better for Physical DPS?

    Mitternacht’s Waltz vs Stringless?
    What would be better of Electro Support?

      best one for only physical is Rust.
      while best one for only support is Stringless

      Mitternacht is best for main dps fish that still use the Oz instead of just doing physical with help of c1

      c1 DPS Fischl goes for Rust
      c6 DPS Fischl goes for Waltz
      Sub DPS Fischl goes for Stringless

        Yeah, no.

        Waltz still needs Fischl to be doing damage to maintain the damage buff for Oz and viceversa since it lasts for 5s, and her constellations 2 through 6 buff either skill or Ult. I get where you’re coming from, but the fact Waltz has PhysATK% as substat basically ruins it compared to Rust because that is ATK that Oz WON’T benefit from if you have Waltz, let alone the fact that Rust beats it for light attack spam by a mile since it starts at 40% damage and ends at double, and it doesn’t need Oz to do damage for that buff.

        I was hyped for this bow. I truly was. I love Fischl and I surely love playing with her, but I cannot for the life of me recommend this bow over Rust in ANY case UNLESS you are PhysDPS Fischl and have this at R5 and don’t have Rust, or have it at R2 or less. The only single drawback Rust has is a meager 10% less charged shot damage, and even if the PhysATK% on Waltz is higher, it is not by enough to warrant, you know, using it over light attack spam king.

        Whoever decided to give it that substat and thought it would have a shot at being better than Rust needs to be fired on the spot. Why didn’t they give it ATK% like Rust is beyond me (my only guess it’s because they would be statistically identical then, but still).

          They could give it crit rate / DMG.
          But looks like only BP/shop weapon give crit stats for 4* class.

          Your reply seems to be an oversimplification of how these stats work. Fischl’s substat is already attack. You run an attack sans and there’s the flat attack boost on the feather. And more than likely you’ll be having attack substats on your other artifacts. That vastly decreases the benefit of the attack stat on rust. On the flip side rust doesn’t boost Oz in any other way so already this bow is better for Oz because a 40% boost in damage is going to be better than a meager ~350 attack or so. On top of that you can only get physical damage on goblets so the physical damage bonus on this, which is almost a 90% increase in your bonus, is better than a meager ~350 attack from Rust. Now whether or not the physical bonus multiplied by the 40% damage bonus is better/worse than the 80% with rust someone else will have to test. But I’d wager this bow is at the very least very close to rust if not just as good. Aside from that it’s aesthetically more pleasing as well

    I don’t know why they thought putting this weapon in the weapon banner would be a good idea. Actual monkey move.

    would this actually be any better than stringless or should i just like Not

      • Stringless on 8 June 2021 at 2:50 pm
      • Reply

      Stringless and this don’t even fulfil the same purpose. Stringless is for support and this is for DPS. You cannot replace one with the other. If you want a support weapon then go Stringless. If you want a DPS weapon for PHYS DMG Fischl then go with this. However, this weapon is frankly a bad pull because it is only useful on Fischl. No other bow character can use it. It is always better to go with versatile weapons than single use ones.

    I have an R3 Harp on my main dps chuuni so I doubt this will be any better for her, but interested to see how this fares nonetheless. I might ehance it and test it out of I roll it with some refines.

    Everyone in comments keep arguing of substat. Meanwhile me Fischl main, doing math with my new phys set that has electro goblet, happy to have constant 121% Normal Attack DMG and 66% Skill dmg, and if I’m being lucky on a banner getting this numbers to 141% and 86% respectively, which is doubling dmg% bonuses that she already has.

      Because it is vastly inferior to what Rust offers, even if you go for Physical DPS as Fischl. There is no reason to use it if you have Rust, and that is literally heartbreaking for me.

        This guy over here thinking 350ish attack is vastly better than a straight 40% damage increase on Oz. On top of that your physical damage bonus goes from 58% to almost 110% which is almost a 90% increases in your bonus, and this is factored BEFORE the normal attack bonus. Now whether or not rust is better is up to the mathematicians to figure out. But to say the difference is vast is flat wrong.
