In this article, Ai-chan will be sharing tips on using the equipment items recommended for [Midnight Absinthe]: [Obscuring Wing] and [Aslaug (T, M, B]!
※※※※※New Weapon Overview※※※※※
[Obscuring Wing] is the bow recommended for [Midnight Absinthe] released in v5.2. It unconditionally increases the wielder's Total DMG and the team's Fire DMG. Its active not only deals high Fire DMG, but also grants the team 3 charges that each boost Fire DMG for a short time, improving the team's burst damage output.
*The following skill data are at Lv. 50.
5★/292 ATK/17 Crit
[Arrows of Phantom]
Aim for up to 3s and fire arrows to deal 650% ATK of Fire DMG. Hitting a weakspot deals 750% ATK of Fire DMG and creates a blast that deals 100% ATK of bonus Fire DMG (counted as weakspot DMG). A hit grants 3 charges to every teammate. In the following 4s, every subsequent attack from the wielder consumes 1 charge to deal 20% bonus Fire DMG. CD: 6s.
Temporarily improves the team's Fire DMG output. Works very well with Herrscher of Flamescion and Dea Anchora since their Combo ATKs and Ultimates fit the bill.
DMG from the blast caused by hitting a weakspot is considered to be weakspot DMG, meaning that if the 750% ATK of Fire DMG from its active reduces a Nihilus Seed's HP to below 20%, the following blast will trigger [Midnight Absinthe]'s passive [Red Sunrise] and insta-kill the Nihilus Seed.
Wielder deals 25% bonus Total DMG. Team deals 20% bonus Fire DMG.
Unconditionally increases the wielder's Total DMG and the team's Fire DMG.
This weapon moderately improves [Midnight Absinthe]'s Fire DMG output and Fire support capacity. It does a better job of supporting the team.
※※※※※New Stigmata Overview※※※※※
[Aslaug (T, M, B)] improves Fire support capacity. Enemies hit by the host's Ultimate will take much more Fire DMG, making it suitable for Fire supports. Those with low Ultimate costs can also make good use of it.
★★Stigma Set Rundown★★
*The following skill data are at Lv. 50.
5★ 386 HP/113 ATK/66 DEF
[Hidden in the Harp]
Fire DMG increases by 20%. Team deals 20% bonus Elemental DMG to enemies in Feathered state. Skill effects cannot stack.
Unconditionally increases Fire DMG. However, for it to increase the team's total Elemental DMG, enemies must be sent into Feathered state by [Aslaug (B)] first, so it isn't very useful when equipped alone.
5★ 483 HP/177 DEF/11 Crit
[Fishing Net for Dress]
Fire DMG increases by 20%. Every hit (CD: 1s) boosts host's Total DMG by 5% for 5s. 6 stacks max. Triggering it again resets the duration. Switching out the host removes all stacks. With host on standby, team deals 20% bonus Fire DMG. Skill effects cannot stack.
Increases Fire DMG unconditionally, Total DMG on every hit, and the team's Fire DMG when the host is on standby. Powerful whether equipped alone or in a set.
5★ 386 HP/57 ATK/66 DEF/19 Crit
[Snake in the Eye]
Fire DMG increases by 20%. On hit, Ultimate inflicts Feathered state on enemies for 8s and makes them take 20% bonus Elemental DMG. Triggering it again resets the duration.
Unconditionally increases Fire DMG. Ultimate puts enemies in Feathered state, inflicting All Elemental Vulnerability which can be enhanced by the 2-pc bonus. Powerful whether equipped alone or in a set.
2-pc Bonus: [Twisted Fate]
Total DMG increases by 15%. Enemies in Feathered state take 30% bonus Elemental DMG instead. Team deals 12% bonus Total DMG. Skill effects cannot stack.
Unconditionally increases the Total DMG dealt by the host and her team. Enhances the All Elemental Vulnerability inflicted by Feathered state. This stigma centers on improving the team's Elemental DMG output.
3-pc Bonus: [Kráka]
Charged ATKs boost Total DMG by 20% on hit for 15s. Triggering it again resets the duration. With host on standby, team deals 30% bonus Fire DMG. Skill effects cannot stack.
Similar to [Aslaug (M)], it increases the team's Fire DMG when the host is on standby. Suitable for Fire supports. It increases Total DMG after a Charged ATK hits to make up for weak offense.
[Midnight Absinthe]'s Ultimate inflicts heavy Fire Elemental Vulnerability, which can be enhanced by [Aslaug (T, M, B)]. When she's on standby, the smoke explosions triggered by her teammates deal DMG based on her stats, so her Ultimate benefits from the Total DMG and Fire DMG buffs, making her strong enough to carry in IMG-type environments.
