Decent for Main DPS and Sub DPS Units

While the Widsith has an array of buffs in its passive skill, the CRIT DMG substat makes it a viable catalyst for either Main DPS or Sub DPS characters. Do take note that each buff is randomly chosen so damage output may not be as consistent.

Characters that rely on Elemental Bursts and Skills who then switch out are best suited to wield this weapon. In order to take full advantage of the Widsith, players may need to swap characters while it is on a 30s cooldown.
