Vortex Vanquisher has no shield on, so it is a loss of -7.19% DMG. Since Zhongli sia ble to maintain shields almost all the time, as long as it does not breaks beforehand. Instead of +20%, he is always able to get the +40% ATK. Basically, it is better in Basic compared to Blackcliff, Deathmatch, and Royal Spear easily. In Critical DMG, it performs almost the same as the Blackcliff at 1.5 modifier vs 2.003. Therefore, improving Crit DMG with substats would give more DMG than Blackcliff.

The Crescent Pike still tops the list at performing Basic Attacks in the terms of Damage Per Seconds or DPS, as long as it is able to maintain collecting Elemental Orbs to make the ability of the weapon activated.
