Primarily Used by DPS Characters

Same as Range Gauge, Prospector's Drill is a decent alternative for DPS characters like Xiao, Raiden, and Hu Tao. Xiao, in particular, can trigger the weapon's skill often with his Elemental Burst effect when he's paired with a healer, but it is not his best weapon.

Shenhe is also a nice addition to this roster as her Elemental Skill buff scales off of her ATK! Just keep in mind, however, to bring a healer to activate its buff!
