Crescent Pike is an amazing weapon for Physical DPS units. It’s free, craftable, and really easy to refine — plus it gets significantly better with refinements.

At level 90 Refinement Rank 1, it has a Base ATK of 565 and a secondary stat of 34.5% Physical damage bonus. This is a great combination of stats — high Base ATK and rare damage bonus.

Its passive is called Infusion Needle, and it has the following effect:

After picking up an elemental orb/particle, the wielder’s normal/charged attacks deal an additional 20% ATK as damage for 5s.

It’s a powerful passive that pulls it ahead of every other polearm when it comes to Physical DPS.

So Crescent Pike is basically the best option for ATK-scaling Physical DPS units, but it doesn’t work anywhere else.

Here’s a complete list of its synergy with all current playable polearm users.
