Festering Desire Gameplay & Tips

Boosted Elemental Skill

Festering Desire

Festering Desire increases the user's Skill DMG & its CRIT Rate which is great for sub DPS & support characters. The Energy Recharge sub-stat is useful for improving the user's capabilities in combat.

Pair With Recommended Artifacts

EOSF For Increased Burst Damage

Since Festering Desire has an ER sub-stat, it is great to pair it with EOSF since this artifact provides additional ER and also increases the user's Burst DMG based on the total ER.

Emblem Of Severed Fate Set Location & Domain

Noblesse Oblige For ATK Buff

On the other hand, Noblesse Oblige can increase the user's Burst DMG by percentage and also provide the team with ATK buff. While the ATK buff is beneficial for everyone in the team, remember that the Noblesse Oblige ATK buff does not stack.

The how to get section is accurate.
Maybe you're under the ***umption that it is still obtainable. Maybe if the event returns.

You're welcome.

"How to get"

Doesn't explain, at all, how to get it.

Nice "guide".
