The Wind-Blessed Harpastum must be equipped at the Inventory before using, once this is done, players may tap its corresponding button to use it. The item acts as a skill and will replace the prompt used for the character's Elemental Skill. There is a 2-second cooldown for equipping/unequipping it, changing characters will automatically turn itself back to the Elemental Skill.
By tapping the Elemental Skill button, a ball will be thrown directly in front of the player with no motion done by the character. By holding the same button, an aiming mode will commence where players may choose exactly where the ball will be thrown. To throw the ball, simply let go of the button. Doing any other action during the aiming mode (attack, jump, sprint) will cancel it. After the ball is thrown with the aiming mode, the camera will default back to the front of the character.
Throwing the ball at enemies deal no damage and will not stun them, it has a 1.5 second cooldown between throws and players do not need to stand still to throw it - except while aiming.
By entering a Painted Ground, a new command will be available. Tapping the "attack" button will now perform a move where the ball can be redirected back, which can also be done during the aiming mode or while moving around. The character will not perform any motion during this move as well.
You can throw Wind-Blessed Harpasta so long as you have them equipped from your Inventory. Throw them accurately to unlock some mysterious mechanisms!
While a Wind-Blessed Harpastum is in use, your Elemental Skill will be replaced with the ability to throw it. Hold the aim button to adjust the direction of the throw.
Adjust your angle and throw Wind-Blessed Harpasta through the Hymnal Rings to modify the Wind-Blessed Harpastum's element to match that of the Hymnal Ring. Then, use the harpasta to destroy Elemental Targets, unlock mechanisms, and obtain rewards.
Twister Rings can change the trajectory of Wind-Blessed Harpasta and cause them to turn. Reprise Rings can cause Wind-Blessed Harpasta that pass through them to split into two harpasta.
Interacting with some of the rings can change their position or orientation. Some of these rings move by themselves, so keep an eye out for those!
Dodo-King's Painted Wall

Use your Dodoguard to return the Wind-Blessed Harpasta and strike the Dodo-King's Painted Wall. Once you accumulated a certain number of hits, you can destroy the Wall and obtain the corresponding rewards.
