"Pioneer Diver of Dead Waters" is an Artifact Set introduced in version 2.0 of Honkai Star Rail, and it proves to be quite intriguing, especially for characters from the Nihility and other Paths who benefit significantly when paired with characters applying numerous debuffs, as exemplified by Dr. Ratio.
This set amplifies the damage dealt to enemies with applied debuffs. Additionally, it enhances the CRIT Rate and CRIT DMG of the equipped character based on the number of debuffs on the targeted enemy. These effects are further heightened if the character consistently applies debuffs each turn, making it a crucial requirement for utilizing this set effectively.
It's an ideal set for Nihility characters looking to boost their damage, provided they are not specialized in DoT (Damage over Time). Since DoT cannot land critical hits, it would be somewhat wasteful for such characters. Furthermore, these kind of characters already have access to the "Prisoner in Deep Confinement" set, which is tailored to their needs.
Increases DMG dealt to enemies with debuff by 12%.
Increases CRIT Rate by 4%. The wearer deals 8%/12% increased CRIT DMG to enemies with at least 2/3 debuffs. After the wearer inflicts a debuff on enemy targets, the aforementioned effects increase by 100%, lasting for 1 turn(s).
