It has a sleek shape and a beautiful color palette and to top it off it has a clock face on it! In my opinion, that makes this (The Bell) a really cool-looking claymore. But, the sad thing is that when many Genshin players think of The Bell, they immediately diss it. For this, I don’t understand why. So, even though many may disagree with this article today, I am going to offer up some of my own opinions as to why I think using The Bell can have its advantages. Especially if used properly. So let’s get started, shall we?
First off, let’s talk about that shield it gives us eh?
It triggers about every 45 seconds and acts as a great shield to block damage. Plus, every time this shield is activated, the character that has this claymore equipped gets an increase in damage. The amount increased varies on how many times you have ascended it. But, even at a Rank 2 ascension, it packs a decent punch at 15 percent. And the amount of damage it can take (the shield) is dependent on the max HP stat. This percentage increase with each ascension as well. So, therefore the Bell makes a pretty good claymore for support characters and healing ones.
Sayu, for example, I find utilizes The Bell quite well, to be honest. With her already good defense and healing stats (as long as you have a good artifact set), The Bell increases her capabilities and helpfulness so-to-speak for your team.
Now, I currently have Diluc using The Bell. It may not be the most efficient weapon for him at the moment, but I’ve used it since I first got it when I pulled Diluc at the same time. So for the longest time, it has served me well. Especially since–at least in my case, I can’t seem to get ahold of any claymores. It’s actually once in a blue moon occurrence, even with the Debate Club.
So all in all, I think people highly underestimate The Bell. Or at the very least, don’t know how to utilize it properly. Most probably think that since it’s a high-ranking weapon and a claymore, it is naturally supposed to be for tank characters or characters with a very high DPS. As I’ve explained, it’s not the case. It can be a wonderful weapon for healers and support characters. Even with Noelle, it works quite efficiently. So I highly suggest not overlooking this weapon and enhancing it at least a rank or two. It could come in handy if you pull a healer or support.
Well, that’s all this Fae has to say,
Rebel Fae out!
