As a catalyst weapon, the Widsith provides 42 basic attack and 12% critical damage. Both statistics go up as the weapon level increases.

Because the lore of the book is related to a musical troupe and their adventure, the passive of the weapon is about musical notes as well. When a character equipping this weapon goes into battle, they will gain a Recitative, Aria, or Intrude effect for 10 seconds that is repeatable every 30 seconds. Below is a list of the musical notes and the following effects.

  • ♪ Recitative: Attack damage is increased by 60-120% for 10 seconds
  • ♫ Aria: Elemental damage is increased by 48-96% for 10 seconds
  • ♪♬ Interlude: Elemental Mastery is increased by 240-480% for 10 seconds

The type of song effect will appear over the character's head once it is activated, and the bonus effects are applied to the single character only.
