Iron Sting Gameplay & Tips

Elemental Mastery & Elemental DMG Bonus

Iron Sting is noteworthy for magnifying the elemental damage of the user. The Elemental Mastery sub-stat significantly improves the damage of elemental reactions while the passive stack gives elemental DMG bonus.

Useful Sword For Elemental Reactions

As a sword, triggering elemental reactions require setups and passive stacks can only be obtained if the user uses Skill & Burst. This sword is relevant to elemental reactions especially Swirl, Hyperbloom, & Hypercharge.

Passive Stacks Effect

Iron Sting passive

When performing an elemental DMG, a passive stack is acquired up to 2 stacks at max. Each stack is represented by a sword mark that boosts the user's all elemental DMG and can be seen rotating around the character.
