The first character you meet in the game, Amber, is a bow user.

1. Polar Star

  • Base ATK (Lv. 1 - 90): 46 - 608
  • 2nd Stat (Lv. 1 - 90): CRIT Rate +7.2% - 33.1%

The Polar Star is best for attackers who use their entire kits. Tartaglia is the best Polar Star user, as his stance can trigger the stacks easily. After stacking up in ranged mode, you can go into burst melee with full stack for massive damage.

Aloy, Fischl, Ganyu and Venti can also make use of this bow. The weapon's base stats are just so high that any bow user can deal good damage using it.

2. Thundering Pulse
