Item Story


This story takes place thousands of years ago, in an era after the foolish God-King was buried by the sandstorms.
Mortal cities scattered across the land, amongst which Tulaytullah, where men and women of wisdom gathered and resided, was the most outstanding.
The city was dotted with buildings roofed with sapphire domes and adorned with emerald gardens of blooming trees and flowing fountains.
In the times following the God-King’s departure, this fortunate city still glowed with wisdom and prosperity.

People say that a warrior named Xiphos once lived in this city of sapphire and emerald.
Xiphos was adept at wielding his double-edged sword, and he saved many a maiden from monster attacks, snatching many treasures from them in the process.
In an ancient Tighnarian lore, his sword was indwelt by a twisted, cruel Jinni,
Which was why the blade was not dulled but rather sharpened by slaughters, not smudged but instead brightened by blood.

“My dearest Master, let me feast on that rosy juice, indulge me with the crimson brew.”
“My affection gushes forth only for you, like the daughter of grapevines entertains the tipplers with her bloody sacrifice.”
“So long as you own my affection, and the moon shines on your ever-youthful face,”
“So long as your foes hold affection for this world, and have not forgotten their mothers’ names, you shall be a warrior unmatched.”

Later on, the swordsman adored by the Jinni of moonlight would encounter an exiled foreign wanderer.
The wanderer had accepted silver coins, blood money from kings opposed to Tulaytullah, and he shouldered their grudges and hatred against the hero.
Thus they who should have become friends at some bar became foes in battle, fighting each other to the death with the moonlight as their witness.
In the fight, their blades were bathed in ruby wine while the overripe pomegranate burst, vital, vivid red pouring from the rupture…
The deadly duel finally settled. The pale moon cast its cold light upon the winner and the defeated alike.

“Whichever direction the wind blows, there is never a single ripple in the cup of life.”
“The three departed goddesses had long determined the heroes’ fate, even if they could never fathom it themselves.”

The wanderer took the moonlit sword, picked up the bloodstained silver coins, and trod in silence toward the distant rainforest.
Thus deprived of Xiphos’ protection, the city lost its luster and withered away in the following years.
Its buildings and gardens were ground down into the dirt along with its destiny, and then the howling desert gales consigned them to oblivion.
Ultimately, the black key and the young prince’s quest to rejuvenate his kingdom both sank into the sand’s embrace…

  1. I don’t understand the “will trigger every 10s” part.

    Does this mean it snapshot the holder’s EM as ER every 10s?

    If that’s the case, it’s kinda hard to use the effect of C2 Kazuha because we don’t know when exactly it will do its snapshotting.

  2. this weapon would be good on Sub-DPS Dendro MC, but only with R3 or above. R1 only provides about ~30% ER for 800EM, which is not good since your MC need ~220ER to ult off cd. R5 will gives 59% for 800EM, pair with artifacts ER EM EM( 3 EM artifacts only give a extra ~10% ER so i think ER sands is more valuable) that have ER sub stat, in total MC will have ~250ER, also the damage will be boost a whole lot more since the MC’s passive scale with EM. This gonna be an expensive build… best artifact set i can think of is Gilded Dreams because it also give 50EM for each different element in the team. If you wanna build the MC, go for it, but it just so expensive…

    • If we consider full em/em/em + r1 this sword, kazuha will only have around 950em, so this sword will only give him around 34% er. If you can get 30-35% er from substats, making kazuha’s total er to 160-170%, than I would say it is worth it. If your kazuha has no er% substats, than 134% er kazuha is not worth it, when we compare to 800em 170% er kazuha (either sacrifical or iron sting+er sands).
      Conclusion: see for yourself.
