is missive windspear good for cyno

Cyan 25

Try cyno/xingqiu/albedo/shinobu. I could 36* the abyss for the first time with this team (and ayaka/kokomi/kazuha/rosaria on the other half) it works pretty well (albedo is there for his em granting passive you can replace him with kazuha or zhongli)

Anon 21: You can use the Inazuma polearm or the Sumeru one, both are acceptable. But is better to give him White Tassel. The Catch is useless on him and the polearm from Mondstadt event is worse than the craftable weapons.

wanderer 23

Anon 20: Aggravatte is a reaction that does deal Crit DMG, sames as Vaporize and Melt. That's why you should try to get as much as Crit DMG/Crit Rat and EM as possible.
