Every Genshin Impact update patch either brings a free character or weapon. Genshin Impact 3.1 update adds a new polearm, titled Missive Windspear. This weapon is obtainable by playing the “Of Ballads and Brews” event in Version 3.1. In this Genshin Impact guide, we have listed the best characters that can use Missive Windspear to its full potential.
Missive Windspear is a four-star polearm added to Genshin Impact in Version 3.1 update. It has a decent amount of Attack % as the secondary sub-stat and a powerful passive effect to boost damage when proccing elemental reactions. At max level and refinement five, Missive Windspear has the following stats:
- Base attack: 510
- Secondary stat: 41.3% ATK
- Passive: Within 10s after an Elemental Reaction is triggered, ATK is increased by 24% and Elemental Mastery is increased by 96.
As there are many polearm characters, players might feel confused when deciding how to use Missive Windspear. These five characters are the best candidates for Missive Windspear in Genshin Impact:
Best Genshin Impact Characters for Missive Windspear
Missive Windspear is a decent free-to-play weapon for Cyno. the General Mahamatra. Along with Missive Windspear, Genshin Impact 3.0 update also added Cyno. With the introduction of Dendro reactions, Elemental Mastery has become one of the most powerful and desired stats in the game.
With lots of ATK%, Missive Windspear provides up to 96 Elemental Mastery without any cooldowns. Players just have to do elemental reactions to activate the weapon’s passive. Cyno’s 18-second-long elemental burst provides enough time to trigger Missive Windspear’s passive effect.
Xiangling can use almost every polearm in Genshin Impact, and Missive Windspear is no exception. Xiangling highly appreciates both ATK% and Elemental Mastery. No ICD (Internal Cooldown) on Xiangling’s elemental burst lets her trigger elemental reactions frequently.
However, Missive Windspear isn’t the best F2P weapon for Xiangling. Players can get better results by using other weapons like Dragon’s Bane, The Catch, Moonpiercer, etc.
3) Rosaria (Reverse melt)
Rosaria is one of the best support characters in Genshin Impact. Moreover, she can only be used as a DPS to deal tons of damage. Rosaria’s elemental burst applies cryo every few seconds. Reverse melt rosaria paired with Bennett and Xiangling does an absurd amount of damage.
Players who have been unlucky with gacha weapons can use R5 Missive Windspear on reverse-melt Rosaria. Elemental Mastery buff from passive effect boosts the melt reaction damage. Missive Windspear is a decent alternative to other 4-star polearms for Rosaria.
4) Raiden Shogun (Hyperbloom)
Raiden Shogun is mainly played as a support and burst DPS character in Genshin Impact. However, Dendro reactions have introduced many new ways to play characters. Players can now use Raiden Shogun as an Electro element driver to trigger hyperbloom reactions.
Damage from Hyperbloom depends on the triggering character’s Elemental Mastery. Players tired of using burst DPS Raiden Shogun can try playing her in hyperbloom reaction teams.
Other than Moonpiercer and Dragon’s Bane, Missive Windspear is the only 4-star polearm that provides Elemental Mastery. Moonpiercer is a craftable weapon, while Dragon’s Bane is a gacha weapon. On the other hand, Missive Windspear is free for all players participating in the “Of Ballads and Brews” event.
Free weapons are sometimes just as competitive as craftable and gacha weapons. Missive Windspear has a niche use, but future polearm characters will definitely benefit from its passive effect. Meanwhile, players can use this weapon on the characters listed in this guide.
