A sword made from materials that do not belong in this world. The power within might even be able to withstand the corruption of a venom that could corrode a mighty dragon.

Cinnabar Spindle is an Event-Exclusive 4-Star Sword. It can be obtained during the "Shadows Amidst Snowstorms" event after making the first Puffy Snowman. It cannot be used to enhance another weapon as only one copy can be obtained.

Refining Cinnabar Spindle requires Alkahest instead of an identical weapon. It can be obtained through the Shadows Amidst Snowstorms Event Shop after completing the Dragonspine Special.


  • Spotless Heart can activate even if the wielder of the Cinnabar Spindle is off field.


Separate the dust in the flames with joy, and extract the exquisite from the crude.

For all in the universe comes from a single source, and all things may be derived from a single thought.

You must pursue that which your elder brother, the one-horned white horse, could not accomplish.

Reach the far side of philosophy, and create a new destiny for myself and your brothers...



  • Albedo uses this blade in cutscenes throughout the Shadows Amidst Snowstorms event. In addition to matching his color scheme and complimenting his stats, the sword's description could be interpreted as a reference to his master Rhinedottir and her creations.

Known Issues

  • If Elemental Skill hits a shielded enemy without dealing damage, Spotless Heart may stop working indefinitely until the weapon is unequipped and reequipped.
