Prototype Crescent Gameplay & Tips

Increased Attack & Movement Speed

Prototype Crescent is great for DPS bow users, especially those who utilize Charged Attacks. The buff from passive can only be activated when Charged Attacks hit an enemy's weak point.

Passive Effect

When hitting the weak point of an enemy with Charged Attack, the buff from passive gets activated. Upward arrows are visible around the character which signifies that the passive is already in effect.

Also Works As A Stat Stick

The ATK sub-stat is helpful for increasing the user's damage output. While it could be difficult to reach a good CRIT stat ratio & the situational activation of the buff from passive, this bow is useful nonetheless.
