Attacks using the energy stored within the greatsword upon release or once this ability’s duration expires, dealing Electro Damage. Damage dealt scales with the number of times Beidou is attacked in the skill’s duration. The greatest Damage Bonus will be attained once this effect is triggered twice. The shield possesses the following properties:

– Has 250% Electro Damage Absorption Efficiency.
– Applies the Electro Element to Beidou upon activation.

Recalling her slaying of the great beast Haishan, Beidou calls upon that monstrous strength and the lightning to create a Thunderbeast’s Targe around herself, dealing Electro Damage to nearby opponents.

Thunderbeast’s Targe:
– When Normal and Charged Attacks hit, they create a lightning discharge that can jump between opponents, dealing Electro Damage.
– Increases the character’s resistance to interruption, and decreases damage taken.
– Triggers a maximum of 1 lightning discharge per second.

  • Damage dealt by Normal and Charged Attacks is increased by 15%. ATK SPD of Normal and Charged Attacks is increased by 15%.
  • Greatly reduced delay before unleashing Charged Attacks.

3. Conqueror of Tides – Decreases swimming stamina consumption of your characters in the party by 20%. Not stackable with Passive Talents that provide the exact same effects.
