Elemental Skill: Sanctifying Ring

Creates a Grass Ring of Sanctification at the cost of part of her HP, dealing Electro DMG to nearby opponents.

  • Grass Ring of Sanctification: Follows your currently active character around. Deals Electro DMG to nearby opponents every 1.5s and restores HP for active the character within the ring based on Kuki Shinobu's Max HP. The HP consumption from using this skill can only bring her to 20% HP.

Elemental Burst: Gyoei Narukami Kariyama Rite
