Notes
A lute with 2 modes. Like the Kogbold Multitool, you can swap abilities by holding Shift. Both modes give Inspired Icon Inspired to allies, but give a special version of Inspired to the user which modifies your shots differently than normal.

  • Crescendo is the default ability. Having a faster shot speed generally makes it easier to hit enemies. The Berserk can be great for solo play or in groups without a Warrior. (Shot Velocity: 162.5%, Proj. Lifetime: 76.9%)
  • Adagio makes your shots linger, which can be useful against chasing enemies. These enemies can be lured into the lingering shots, allowing you more range than usual. In addition, the Healing and party heal effects give the mode extra value when supporting a group. (Shot Velocity: 62.5%, Proj. Lifetime - 199%)

Not the best lute for DPS, but both types of adjusted shots can be useful in certain situations.

Note: Both modes will increase your shot range by 25% when using a regular bow. However, since this lute does not modify acceleration speed, certain weapons have odd interactions. Deaccelerating weapons like the B.O.W. will end up with more range when using Crescendo, while accelerating weapons like the Garland Bow will have more range with Adagio.

History
Before Exalt Version 4.0.1.0 (Sep 2023), the item granted +5 DEF and DEX, did not grant Inspired to the group, and did not have a Party Heal in its Adagio mode.
