In the times when kingdoms sprang up like the mushrooms and collapsed like castles in the sand, when heroes rose like stars and fell like comets,
After the Lord of Sand sank into the desert with dreams in his embrace, the blind wandering poet, of the once-privileged origin,
Traveled across the vast sea of desert, and gathered its ballads from the scattered people of the desert.
He heard of the fall of his homeland, of the prince who blinded his eyes finally crushing the overwhelmed throne.
He heard of the legends of how the dancer aided one after another in becoming the king and made them obliterated by the sandstorm.
He heard the elegy of the clear springs that were replaced by flowing sands and the ancient cries of nations that collapsed into villages and tribes.
He heard of the story depicting the homeless prince's death, the fate of his swords, and the killer that traversed deep into the forest...
Now, the ballads, uncontrollable like water yet intriguing like the flowing sand, had all been embedded in his heart.
In the searing sandstorms came forth the long-departed dream of the desert from the shards of ballads—
"On the other side of the sea of sand dunes once stood King Deshret's abode."
"The many streets and alleys were nothing less than paths of gold, converging towards the only throne."
"Like the eye that shone with a golden light and the noble heart, King Deshret was once the destination of all paths..."
"But the searing dreams of gold were broken at last, and the great eye was dazzled by the sun and the sand."
"Fate sank like the sands of the ages into the dark depths, and the kingdom of flowing sands was crushed into golden dust."
The clock of fate never ceased for half-a-second for the folly of the king and the ordinary,
The trivial nations, the despicable king, were all finally devoured by the flowing sand...
Once, the paranoid prince built up forts outside the forest line to uphold the honor of the sand.
But eventually his soldiers and people scattered, and his name was lost in the desert wind.
On top of the ruins of the pool where the regalia of past executions of offenders was excavated,
Those who had lost the dream of the desert, yet were unwilling to give up their vast sea of sand gathered.
In the name of the Reed Sea that never existed, they connected with the dream that was promised to them...

on one hand I say “fk it, another niche claymore” because of that crap HP stuff (like DEF on redhorn); but on the other hand I also say they’ll never make another gravestone anymore (not atk, I mean general use).
So whether to wait for a better claymore (imagine a jade cutter serie, tons of rate + unconditional atk increase) or not is a hard bet on fkn gatcha games.
33 rate plus 40 atk is verfy good, but that HP is nothing but a joke, and it makes the weapon half wasted on other units, and we don’t need to comment it because it’s simple as that. It’s part of its kit, and you don’t need it, that’s all.
But i wonder if the’ll ever make a primordial jade greatsword as broken as cutter…
Well, the few claymore dps existing already got their decent bis while the univalersal skyward and wgs will only result in minimal DPS loss.
i’ll probably play this gacha, bcz i really want to get a dragonbane spear. this claymore loses to SS on noelle, and beats SS on beidou by 5% when gaining 1 stack. in any case, the second weap cyno’s spear will also find its owner (xingling, lol).
I don’t understand what you mean. You said that HP is nothing but a joke, and jade cutter is broken. But jade cutter is also increase max HP, and atk increase is only base on character max HP.
I would agree that this claymore crit rate is less than jade cutter, and yea jade cutter passive is unconditional. Which make jade cutter so easy to use and strong. But I wouldn’t say that this claymore is as bad as you said. Although mainly because claymore option is just too less xD
I kinda hope this claymore passive is unconditional, it will definitely make it more useful. But I think this claymore is still good on characters that can constantly deal elemental skill dmg.
Dehya might be bad, but this thing is AMAZING.
It even boosts attack off field, making it amazing support claymore.
Heard this weapon will be better on Eula than SoBP is
Not in the slightest. Physical/elemental bonuses always scale way better than Atk%. A 4% extra Atk bonus is not go going to compete with +20% physical, along with a higher base attack that exceeds that 4% extra Atk.
Also attack speed is a really powerful stat in terms of dps, even if you were to see slightly lower numbers.
This weapon however would be more versatile, allowing you to use it on other claymore characters.
The problem with physical is its scaling bonuses are already rly high, but also enemies have tons of phys res, and phys support units like now mika give more phys dmg when more shredding is needed. Theres not many atk buffers in phys teams if you dont run benny so the atk will prolly still see good use. as for the base atk on sobp, it may make it beat out bacon of the dead sea, idk. Atk spd being a powerful stat is not tru, it only marginally increases dps cuz hit lag, especially for claymores, basically drags the atk spd down. only bow and catalyst users see the real benefits from atk spd.
You need R3 SoBP before it’s attack speed buff even starts making a difference in earning stacks for Eula. This weapon is better in every way other than aesthetic for Eula and overall is far more valuable to an account since it’s a universal weapon like Jade Cutter.
Yes, by a lot, EULA is very crit dependent coz if your ult doesn’t crit, you reset, and this weapon is the first good Claymore we have since release.
Besides crit rate how good is it for Diluc (new bis if c2 and higher)?
It’s gonna be his BIS.
Yes. Any char with WGS as its BIS will now have this weapon as his BIS
So what now? Deyha will be in a standard banner. How will I get this weapon in the future if I don’t get it in this banner?
give them more money so they can milk you more money in the future. win win.
You better pull this on weapon banner if you want it. May not return for a long long time.
Then it’ll probably get added to the 5* weapons that are rated up when 5* characters that don’t have associated weapons are rated up, you know like Klee, Venti, Zhongli and Albedo.. honestly this question is pretty dumb, ofc it’ll have a rerun at some point
ah shit mistakenly pressed enter, what i wanted to say is that zhongli does have a signature, its vortex vanquisher
I’m curious if anyone has insight on 4pc Gilded Dreams or Tenacity of the Millelith will work on her??
Both trigger off field and given that the sanctum will be causing reactions you’d want EM or HP (now that her skills have been buffed to add HP scaling).
Crimson Witch does look like her best set but definitely feel the salt from the domain on artifact farming.
My insight on 4pc gilded dreams (quick explanation):
– Only works with team that have dendro, her sand u can go with HP but ATK% or EM(if u using a weapon that have EM inside) are still good.
– Best work with another dendro who can operate off-field (Nahida)
– For better results u need hydro (kokomi/mona/barbara) catalyst which allow for more seeds to drop. (The best would be Nilou)
C1 Dehya = Crimson Witch better option with HP% on Sand.
– She are now ur dps. (Yup) She is not the strongest one shot (atm)
– But it is a viable dps character, you have to built it right.
– Having her signature weapon will be ideal however, serpent spine will do well
– U can go for Ferrous Shadow but its a 3 star so dmg wise not that strong or the bell
Tenacity of the Millelith 4 set? no 2 piece? yes.
– She is a mix between atk and hp (HP scale more), its better to give 4 set to other character who can trigger elemental skill at quicker rate (Zhongli)
– So 2 piece of Tenacity and 2 pieces of? (Crimson/Noblesse/Wanderer/Gilded/Emblem/Paradise)
– Dont overfarm, as there is a specific 4 set pieces for her in later patch after her release
Solid analysis. Thank you!!
Gilded Dreams would be most optimal with burgeon, as it has 1.5x the damage of overload (highest dmg non-multiplicative reaction). Burgeon has a damage limit of 2 explosions every 0.5 sec, so you want to produce 2 blooms every 2.5 secs as anymore would be wasted; this means a very fast hydro application is not needed. Example: Xingqiu + Barbara ring would probably produce around ~1.5 blooms every second, so another hyperbloom or burgeon setup would be more efficient with that hydro setup.
Crimson Witch’s burgeon damage bonus would outscale 4-pc gilded dreams’ 230 EM at around 800~1200 EM, so probably not worth it for burgeon.
Tenacity of the Millelith is a buff set. If the other teammates are doing more atk-based damage than her, then it is probably the best set for her. As for her personal damage, investing HP for her damage is only somewhat worth it at C1 (~10% lower damage than ATK investment i think)
