What can the Lithic Spear do?
At level 90, the Lithic Spear has a base ATK of 565 and an ATK substat of 27.6%. However, what’s unique about this weapon is its secondary effect.
Due to the weapon’s effect, for every character in the party that’s from Liyue, the one who equips this polearm gets a 7% ATK increase and a 3% Crit Rate increase. This effect can stack up to 4 times.
Who can use the Lithic Spear?
While the Lithic Spear’s weapon effect is one of a kind, it also limits the characters that can make use of it. To truly utilize it, you need to have a party full of only Liyue characters.
If you’re a F2P player or someone who wasn’t able to roll a Primordial Jade Winged Spear or Staff of Homa, the Lithic Spear might be a good go to option. Having a good base ATK as well as an ATK substat, this weapon will give your Xiao a good amount of damage. When paired with other Liyue characters like Zhongli, the spear will also give him increased ATK as well as Crit Rate.
Hailing from Liyue, Shenhe is another character that can make use of this weapon. Whether you use her as a sub-DPS or even main, paired with other Liyue characters, the Lithic Spear will increase her overall damage.
Should you roll for this spear?
Rolling for the Lithic Spear depends on the characters you’re building as well as the team you’re running. While it does have good stats, it also constraints your gameplay. To fully utilize the spear, you need to have at least two Liyue characters in the team. Depending on how many character’s you have in your roster and how many you can invest in, that may not be possible for everyone.
