Currently, the Flute is considered as one of the best 4-star weapons for Jean. One of the best healers in the game, Jean’s skills as well as her healing scale with her ATK. With the Flute, not only can she keep your team alive but she can also deal a good amount of damage. Triggering the weapon’s effect isn’t a difficult thing for her either since she can also heal with her normal attacks.
Since the release of the game, Keqing has been a fan favourite. A powerful DPS, thanks to her quick normal and charged attacks, gaining harmonics is easy for her. This means that she can trigger the Flute’s passive in the blink of an eye, making this a good weapon choice for her.
While Qiqi may not be everyone’s choice for a DPS or sub-DPS, as a healer, she can perform her role very well. Since her heals scale of her ATK and she can also heal with her normal attacks, having the Flute on her is a good option. Especially since the weapon will increase the amount of healing she can do.
The Flute is a great 4-star weapon and can benefit many characters when in use. However, it isn’t meant for everyone. For instance, off-field DPS’s like Xingqiu can’t utilize its passive. So, when using this weapon, its important to know who can truly benefit from it and who can’t.
