Sacrifical Bow Stats

As a 4-star weapon, the Sacrificial Bow has 565 ATK at level 90 and an Energy Recharge substat of 30.6%.

Due to its weapon’s effect, Composed, a character has a 40% chance of ending the CD of their elemental skill after it hits an opponent. This effect can occur once every 30s. If your bow is at Refinement Rank 5, then the chance for the CD ending is increased to 80%.

The number of enemies hit by the elemental skill can increase the chances of Composed triggering. For instance, multiple hits of Diona’s elemental skill Icy Paws has a higher chance of triggering the weapon effect. The same applies for Venti’s Skyward Sonnet which causes AOE anemo damage.

Composed can also reset the cooldown for skills that have multiple charges.

Who Can Use the Sacrificial Bow?

Due to its stats and weapon effect, the Sacrificial Bow is the perfect weapon for your support characters. Not only will it increase the chances of their Elemental Skill CD resetting, but the energy gained will have their Elemental Burst up in no time. Users of this bow can also act as batteries for your main DPS.

Diona

Diona is a very good contender for the Sacrificial Bow. Not only will the ER substat help her gain her Elemental Burst faster, but she’ll also be able to trigger the weapon effect more easily. Because of this, her shield will also stay longer. For a character like Diona, having her Elemental Burst Signature Mix ready to go is very helpful, especially for your main DPS. Not only will this burst heal characters but when an enemy enters the AOE, their ATK is decreased by 10%.

Venti

Venti is another character that can utilize the Sacrificial Bow properly. His Elemental Skill with its AOE damage is good for triggering the weapon effect. And the more you use his Elemental Skill, the faster his burst will recharge. Apart from the cooldown, you should always have it ready to go.

Amber

For support Amber, the best bow would be the Stringless. However, if you haven’t managed to roll that, the Sacrificial Bow is a good alternative. Double the baron bunny, the double the distraction allowing your ranged characters to attack in peace.

Sara

There are definitely other weapons out there that are more suited for Sara since the weapon effect of Sacrificial Bow isn’t exactly useful for her. But if you don’t have any other choices, this bow will provide her with a decent base ATK as well as cover the high cost of her Elemental Burst.

Conclusion

The Sacrificial Bow is definitely a good weapon, especially for supports. The only thing you need to keep track of is who can use it. While characters like Diona and Venti can trigger its weapon effect with ease, others like Fischl don’t have much use for it since her elemental skill can’t trigger Composed.

It’s all about what your team needs so if you have a Sacrificial Bow, you may just find a place for it depending on which characters you like to use.
