Luxurious Sea Lord

Luxurious Sea Lord acts as a great weapon for sub-DPS characters as it has a high atk% secondary stat and also its passive provides insane value at refinement level 5. The low-base attack makes it a mediocre option for main DPS. Sayu, Beidou and Chongyun playing the burst support/sub-DPS role can make good use of this weapon.

Apart from the aforementioned rewards, players can also get a total of 4500 Battle Pass EXP on completing specific missions in the event as indicated by the image below.
