The Skyward Harp is one of the earlier 5-star bows in the game. Despite the weapon’s age, nearly a year old, it hasn’t been power crept yet and continues to be one of the strongest 5-star weapons in the game. This is due to the strong stats the weapon provides, giving a respectable amount of Crit Rate and Crit DMG. Additionally, as a 5-star weapon, the base ATK is tremendously high.

As a 5-star weapon, the Skyward is obtainable from the Standard Banner and the Weapon Banner. You can get this weapon at any time from both banners, being a standard 5-star weapon. It’s challenging to obtain, as it is a 5-star, so count your blessings if you’re lucky enough to pull it.

Is the Skyward Harp any good?

The Skyward Harp is an excellent offensive option for any DPS or sub-DPS bow character in the game. While it may not be the best in slot for most characters, it’s typically stronger than any 4-star weapon, so it’s a great weapon to put on your bow characters.

The bow is excellent for bow units that specialize in damage, like Tartaglia, Fischl, Ganyu, etc. It’s a solid weapon that still holds up against some newer bows like Amos’ Bow or Thundering Pulse.
