Aichan's Armament Rundown
Jul 12, 2021

Greetings, Captains! Welcome to the latest episode of Aichan's Armament Rundown. This program periodically shares tips on using and coordinating the latest weapons and stigmata.
The stars of this episode are the new weapon [Mitternachts Waltz] and the new stigma set [Wang Zhenyi (T, M, B)] released in the crossover version!

 ======New Weapon Overview======
Released in v4.9, [Mitternachts Waltz] features a unique aiming mechanic that allows players to manually aim at enemy weakspots. It is recommended for Prinzessin der Verurteilung! since its active make enemies take bonus Lightning DMG on hit. You can hold the weapon active button to aim at weakspots to deal bonus AoE Lightning DMG.

★★Weapon Rundown★★
*The following skill data are at Lv. 50.

[Mitternachts Waltz]

5★/287 ATK/19 Crit

[Arrows of Verurteilung]
Use the bow to aim and shoot (max aiming duration: 3s), dealing 650% ATK of Lightning DMG. Hitting an enemy weakspot creates an explosion dealing 200% ATK of Lightning DMG. The weapon active's CD and charging time are based on the shooting mode.

Aiming at enemies will produce a slow-mo effect similar to Time Fracture, which also slows the entry CD of standby battlesuits. When you aim, a red dot will appear on the enemy to reveal its weakspot. When the crosshair moves close enough to the red dot, it will turn from white to red, indicating you to release the button to hit the weakspot.

Combine it with Prinzessin der Verurteilung!'s passive skill [Causality Perceived] to increase weakspot DMG by 80%. This is especially effective when Prinzessin der Verurteilung! is the carry.

Combine it with Prinzessin der Verurteilung!'s passive skill [Entwined Arrowhead] to trigger her QTE that inflicts Lightning Vulnerability when the weapon active hits.

Since this active can be cast consecutively, you can cast it again after QTE has inflicted Lightning Vulnerability to deal more DMG.


[Overture of Nightfall]
The weapon active marks enemies hit for 10s to make them take bonus Lightning DMG equal to 125% of the wielder's ATK every time they receive Lightning DMG. 30 times max (CD: 0.1s). Marking CD: 16s.

This passive will make enemies suffer 3750% bonus Lightning DMG at most, but will disable the benefits of equipping Newton (B) or Jin Shengtan (T, M, B). Most Lightning battlesuits are fast attackers so they should be able to trigger the mark 30 times with ease.

★★Recommended Wielder★★
Prinzessin der Verurteilung!


This weapon will significantly increase the Lightning DMG output of Prinzessin der Verurteilung!. Its active and passive both have high Lightning DMG multipliers, which will deal DMG, inflict debuff, and increase the team's DMG output when coupled with her special mechanic.

 ======New Stigma Set Overview======
[Wang Zhenyi (T, M, B)] is a stigma set that balances dealing Lightning DMG with supporting. The adaptive 2-pc set is a great transitional stigma set for most Lightning battlesuits. Collect all 3 pieces and put them on Prinzessin der Verurteilung! to bring out the set's full potential.

★★Stigma Set Rundown★★
*The following skill data are at Lv. 50.



[Wang Zhenyi (T)]
5★/411 HP/113 ATK/44 DEF

[Rod Calculus]
Lightning DMG increases by 45%. Weapon actives grant Mitternacht status and restore 10 SP on hit. Mitternacht lasts 12s and has a 15s CD.

Unconditionally increases Lightning DMG. Every Lightning battlesuit can equip this piece to inflict Mitternachts with weapon active to restore SP.


[Wang Zhenyi (M)]
5★/459 HP/221 DEF/8 Crit

Host and her summoned entities deal 15% bonus Total DMG. Switching out ends Mitternacht and boosts Lightning DMG dealt by team and their summoned entities by 15% for 18s. Triggering it again resets the duration (cannot stack). 

Unconditionally increases the host and her summoned entities' Total DMG slightly. Once [Wang Zhenyi (T)] has inflicted Mitternachts, switch the host out to increase the team's Lightning DMG. Suitable for Lighting supports but is ineffective when equipped alone.


[Wang Zhenyi (B)]
5★/423 HP/66 ATK/66 DEF/8 Crit

[Lunar Eclipse]
Elemental DMG increases by 25%. Weapon actives make enemies hit take 20% bonus Lightning DMG for 20s. Triggering it again resets the duration.

Unconditionally increases All Elemental DMG. Like [Wang Zhenyi (T)], its effect kicks in after weapon active hits. It inflicts longer Lightning Vulnerability and therefore works great on Lightning attackers and supports that start the fight with weapon active.

★★Set Bonuses★★
2-pc Bonus: [Astronomer]
Total DMG increases by 25%. Host deals 30% bonus Lightning DMG within 12s after her entry. 

Unconditionally increases Total DMG. The triggered-upon-entry condition is not demanding, making it suitable for any Lightning attacker.

3-pc Bonus: [Female Pioneer]
Weapon skills and Ultimate deal 25% bonus Lightning DMG. Fischl equip bonus: Casting QTE during Mitternacht boosts Total DMG dealt by team and summoned entities by 45% for 20s. Triggering it again resets the duration.

Significantly increases the team's Total DMG once triggered. Prinzessin der Verurteilung! can follow a landed weapon active with QTE to trigger this bonus to increase the team's Total DMG. Her exclusive weapon [Mitternachts Waltz] has powerful Lightning multipliers so it will also benefit from this bonus.

★★Recommended Wielder★★
Prinzessin der Verurteilung!


Prinzessin der Verurteilung! can cast Ultimate to increase the team's Lightning DMG and cast weapon active to trigger QTE to inflict Lightning Vulnerability, making her a formidable Lightning support. [Wang Zhenyi (T, M, B)]'s set bonuses' trigger conditions suit her combat style, hence it will further enhance her support and carry capacities, which will ultimately benefit the team's DMG output.
