Ice Wind Arrow

Tower of Fantasy Tsubasa wields an SSR bow she would often referred to as “Ice Wind Weapon.” It is an Attack weapon that unleashes single and AOE attacks. As a bow user, Tsubasa heavily relies on ranged shots, making it easier for her to attack and kill opponents from a safe distance.

Ice Wind Arrow in an Ice Shell type that freezes small monsters into their place upon reaching the maximum charge. After a while, they will be inflicted with frostbite for 6 seconds. Frostbitten targets’ weapon charge rate is reduced by 50%.

Shattering the ice shells inflicts additional damage equal to 151% of ATK.

Tower of Fantasy Icewind Arrow

Fueled by an additional crit attribute from her weapon, Tsubasa deals massive damage over time. Activating her discharge skill is also a piece of cake with an S-tier Charge of 11.50. The higher the charge, the faster it will be to charge the weapon. This allows Tsubasa to unleash her discharge, Explosive Barrage, more often.

Despite being a good DPS for your team, Tsubasa struggles with shield-breaking due to the extremely low shatter value of 4.00. As for her case, it will take more shots to take down the shield, and it might be late for her and her team by that time.

Ice Wind Arrow provides the following attributes.

  • Attack
  • HP
  • Crit

Tower of Fantasy Tsubasa Skills

Skills and discharge are the characters’ bread and butter, and their main source of damage. Skills that when chained together with another can take down any monster in sight. One can plainly use this skill in whatever way they want, but there are several ways how you can optimize her kit.

If you’re not an expert on Tsubasa’s kit, fret not as we can guide you along your journey. This section features her normal attacks, dodge attacks, weapon skills, and discharge skill.

Normal Attacks

Quickdraw

While on the ground, draw the bow repeatedly to attack 5 times in a row.
First Attack: Deal damage equal to 48.8% of ATK + 3.
Second Attack: Deal damage equal to 43.7% of ATK + 2.
Third Attack: Deal damage equal to 78.6% of ATK + 4.
Fourth Attack: Deal damage equal to 121.2% of ATK + 6.
Fifth Attack: Deal damage equal to 112.5% of ATK + 6 and knock the target back a short distance.

Charged Arrow

Normal and charged attacks are quite different in terms damage and arrow frequency. Charged attacks require holding the attack button while aiming at your target. Unlike normal attacks, charged ones deal more damage but require excellent aim and proper positioning. Make sure that you are in a safe spot before attempting to land a charged shot, as it can be interrupted by attacks and crowd controls.

Charged arrow deals damage equal to 87.7% of ATK + 5, and increases to 50% more for each 1 second spent sharing for up to 3 seconds. It is indicated by the three rectangles on her bow, which glows one by one while charging your weapon. With that being said, charging it to maximum deals more significant damage.

As a Tsubasa main or user, it is also crucial for you to hit your headshots and know the enemies’ weakpoints to ensure landing critical strikes or double damage, or to simply knock them down.

Arrow Rain

The name itself already just gave us a clue to this attack. After at least two normal attacks, and holding the attack button, Ice Wind Arrow will shoot upward and mark a spot on the ground where loads of arrows will fall. It applies Ice Shell, which will then freeze enemies after a few seconds. It is an AOE attack that inflicts up to 287.2% of ATK + 15 to the enemies within the area.

Air Volley

Tap the jump button before pressing the attack button in order to trigger Air Volley. Air Volley allows her to be suspended in the air while shooting her targets.
First Attack: Deal damage equal to 56.3% of ATK + 3.
Second Attack: Deal damage equal to 74% of ATK + 4.
Third Attack: Deal damage equal to 112.7% of ATK + 6.
Fourth Attack: Deal damage equal to 169.8% of ATK + 9.

Dodge

Loaded Arrow

Trigger Loaded Arrow by dodging and immediately pressing the attack button. This will unleash an arrow that knocks back the target hit and inflict 124% and ATK +7 damage.

Skill

Piercing Shot

Tsubasa does a backflip before casting three piercing shots forward with the main shot dealing damage equal to 258% of ATK +14 while the two adjacent shots inflict 60% damage.

Simultaneously, targets hit are knocked back and stunned for 5 seconds upon collision with an obstacle.

Piercing Shot has a cooldown of 12 seconds.

Discharge Skill

Explosive Barrage

Charge your weapon or enter Phantasia by dodging at the right time to trigger Explosive Barrage. It creates a hailstorm at the target location that deals damage equal to 570% of ATK +30. Enemies caught inside the Explosive Barrage has a 10% chance of getting frozen. Aside from its damage, it also removes all debuffs from the user, receives cold front and an increase in speed by 45% for 7 seconds.

Advancement

One Star: Tsubasa’s first advancement is definitely a must-have. After successfully hitting a dodge attack or Loaded Arrow, she will gain a stack of Sharp Arrow. Sharp Arrow is a passive effect that grants a boost in damage by 5% for 15 seconds and can stack up to three times.

This further increases Tsubasa’s viability and versatility. Aside from using her as your main dps, she can simultaneously fill the role as as sub-dps or a buffer. Sharp Arrow amplifies its wielder’s damage, even after switching to another weapon. Hence, she’s best paired with your favorite main dps.

Two Star: Increase the current weapon’s base ATK growth by 16%.

Three Star: Launching a dodge attack or Loaded Arrow shoots three charged arrows instead of one.

Four Star: Increase the current weapon’s base ATK growth by 32%.

Five Star: Increases and doubles the duration of Arrow Rain and slow targets by 25%

Six Star: Tsubasa’s six star is an upgraded version of her first star. Instead of three, it can now stack up to 5. At the same time, stacking it to five can be done quickly by either hitting a charged arrow for three stacks, or a headshot for 5 stacks. Also, from an initial 15% damage boost from her first advancement, Tsubasa and her team’s damage will further increase by 25%.

Tower of Fantasy Tsubasa Best Matrices

MatricesEffect
4 pc Tsubasa MatrixTsubasa’s own matrix set is her best-in-slot as it is solely made for ranged weapons. 

2 pc set only works when its wielder stands at least four meters from the enemies. That being said, her 2pc does not quite work well with melee ones. Upon meeting the condition, this will increase her damage output by 12.5%/15%/17.5%/20%. 

Equipping 4 pc, on the other hand, grants an increase in ATK by 15%/18%/21%/25% for 8 seconds upon hitting a headshot or using Piercing Shot. In order to actually utilize this passive effect, it is preferable to go for charged attacks for easy headshots instead of normal attacks. Moreover, this can further enhance Tsubasa’s viability as a buffer. 
4 pc Samir MatrixSamir’s matrix set focuses on increasing damage output from stacks after subsequent hits. 

2pc set gradually increases damage dealt by 1.5% per hit for 2 seconds. This can stack up to 10/13/16/20 times.

Meanwhile, 4pc set enables her to run down one opponent after another with no sweat. For each locked-on target, she deals extra damage equal to 10%/12.5%/15%/17.5% of ATK. 

Both matrix sets complement Tsubasa’s skill set, but if you’re curious about which one to pick. Well, it will have to depend on your game style and her role in your team. 4 pc Tsubasa is more suited to players that heavily rely on her charged arrows and those who prefer to benefit from her buff. Otherwise, go for 4 pc Samir set.

Tsubasa matrix can be obtained in Joint Operation (Difficulty – 05 to 08) every Monday, and Saturday. Similarly, you can take it on banners, world boss chests, void rifts and suppressors.

Samir’s can be acquired the same way, but only every Friday, Sunday by entering Joint Operation (Difficulty – 05 to 08).

Tower of Fantasy Best Tsubasa Team

With Tsubasa’s kit, she can turn herself into a main-DPS by spamming a good combination of normal and charged attacks, along with her abilities. Likewise, other DPS characters can benefit from her buffs, freeze, and slow effects.

Tsubasa – King – Nemesis

Tsubasa may not be able to one-shot her opponents, but she can land continuous and consecutive attacks that will bring them their own demise. However, Tsubasa experiences a hard time dealing with enemies protected with thick and heavy shields. Good thing that there are characters out there with tremendous shield-breaking ability, such as King, Shiro, and Meryl. Ensuring your characters’ survivability is also essential by adding supports such as Nemesis, Cocoritter and Zero.

Crow – Tsubasa – Meryl

Pairing her with a great DPS like Crow is also viable. Besides Tsubasa’s ability to deal an insane amount of damage, Tsubasa also excels at landing crowd controls and slow effects. Similarly, her team can take advantage of her Sharp Arrows from her Advancement to increase their ATK for a short duration. The last spot should go for a shield-breaker, as both Crow and Tsubasa have relatively low shatter value.
