The Missive Windspear in Genshin Impact is a 4-Star polearm introduced as part of the Off Ballads and Brews event.
Although debuting at the same time as new Electro 5-Star Cyno, it's not his best weapon, but can be used as a free-to-play option.
Cyno isn’t the only character in Genshin Impact who can use the Missive Windspear, so we’ll go over which characters can benefit from the polearm's stats, and all the Missive Windspear Ascension Materials you need to upgrade it below.

Genshin Impact Missive Windspear ability, stats, and attack damage
The Missive Windspear is a 4-Star polearm that raises the attack stat of any character who equips it. This is beneficial for those whose abilities increase from a higher attack number, be it pure damage potential, or a healing effect.
Here's a summary of the Missive Windspear’s abilities and stats before its upgraded in Genshin Impact:
- Rarity: 4-Stars.
- Base attack: 42.4.
- Secondary stat: Attack.
- Secondary stat value: 9%.
- Special ability: The Wind Unattained (Within 10 seconds after an Elemental Reaction is triggered, attack is increased by 12% and Elemental Mastery is increased by 48).
As it's a weapon obtained through the Of Ballads and Brews limited-time event, you need to earn Festive Fever during the event to get the Plume of the Changing Winds needed to refine the Missive Windspear.

Genshin Impact Missive Windspear Ascension materials
To get the Missive Windspear to Level 90, you’re going to have to use Ascension materials to upgrade the polearm. This takes a lot of Mora and farming materials, but not as much as a 5-Star weapon.
For the Missive Windspear, you'll need to farm a lot of Statuettes and Slime materials (if you don't already have them) to fully upgrade its capabilities.
Materials can be found while exploring, in Domains, dropped by enemies, taking part in events, and some can even be purchased from the various in-game shops.
The table below details what Missive Windspear Ascension materials you need to upgrade it:

Who should use Missive Windspear in Genshin Impact?
The Missive Windspear is very close in damage potential numbers to the 4-Star White Tassel, and will even cause more Elemental damage than it, provided the right artifacts are equipped. It's a great free-to-play option for 5-Star polearm-user Cyno, but there are a few other characters who can benefit from the Missive Windspear too.
Although it may not be their best weapon, if building around normal attack or Elemental damage, here's who should use the Missive Windspear in Genshin Impact:
Keep in mind that for the Missive Windspear's special ability, the character weilding it will need to be active on the field for it to increase attack by 12% and Elemental Mastery by 48 after an Elemental Reaction is triggered.
