BP Bow With CRIT Rate

The Viridescent Hunt has a CRIT Rate sub-stat which is great for achieving good CRIT stat ratio. The passive of this weapon has a 50% chance to conjure a cyclone when the user scores a hit to the enemy with either Normal or Charged Attack; the damage of the cyclone scales with the user's ATK.

Passive Effect
