Yin is a boy gifted in the arts of Kungfu, who has been possessed by an Evil God. He is available for a limited time on a free trial, on the Advanced Server.

Passive – Leave It to Me

Yin deals increased damage when there are no allied heroes around.

Skill 1 – Charged Punch

Yin gains extra Movement Speed and launches a Charged Punch on his next Basic Attack, dealing damage twice. Enemies in the distance will take higher damage.

Skill 1 (Lieh) – Frenzy Strike

Lieh smashes an area ahead successively, inflicting high damage and slow. The smashing speed will gradually increase over the duration.

Skill 2 – Instant Blast

Yin dashes forward, leaving a Golden Ring behind. After a short delay, the Golden Ring will catch up with Yin, dealing damage and stunning enemies it passes through

Skill 2 (Lieh) – Instant Blast

Lieh strikes a flying kick forward, leaving a Golden Ring behind. After a short delay, the Golden Ring will catch up with Lieh, dealing damage and stunning enemies it passes through.

Ultimate – My Turn

Yin pulls a designated enemy hero into his domain with him and turns into Lieh. When in the domain, the two cannot be affected by other heroes’ skills. If Yin successfully kills the enemy, he’ll leave the domain with the cooldowns of his non-ultimate skills reset and continue to fight as Lieh for a while.
