A defensive weapon.

Whiteblind is a 4-star Claymore available to all players. While there is no special unlock requirement, obtaining the actual weapon itself will require some grinding. The sword needs a Northlander Claymore Billet, only available through weekly boss drops or as quest/exploration rewards.

Once you obtain a Northlander Claymore Billet, you can use it to forge either the Whiteblind or Prototype Archaic. The Whiteblind is another niche free-to-play weapon but works well with Claymore characters who scale off of Defense.

Is the Whiteblind any good?

Whiteblind is a weapon that works for Claymore characters who scale off of DEF. In particular, these are two characters. Noelle at Constellation 6 converts 50% of her DEF into ATK, allowing her to work as a main DPS character. Noelle can therefore use the Whiteblind to increase her damage output as a free-to-play alternative to the Serpent Spine.

The upcoming Arataki Itto functions similarly, dealing more damage based on the amount of DEF he builds. Whiteblind will likely be a great free-to-play option for him as a result.
