“Imbibitor Lunae”, the title passed down as part of the succession of the Vidyadhara elders, once belonged to Dan Heng’s previous incarnation, Dan Feng – a member of the High-Cloud Quintet who carried out battles heroic work for Xianzhou in wartime but tragically abused his power, leading to a catastrophic disaster.

On the battlefield, Dan Heng • Imbibitor Lunae displays a unique specialty by consuming many skill points to unleash powerful abilities. Players can use this feature to increase their base attack up to three times in a row.
Depending on the number of buffs activated, basic attacks will transform into different forms. Additionally, when Ultimate is active, Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae deals imaginary damage to a target and nearby enemies and gains a fixed amount of Squama Sacrosancta to compensate for the skill point consumption.
Players will also be able to recruit Lynx, an endearing character from the noble Landau family
Another highly anticipated Xianzhou Luofu character, Fu Xuan, will also debut on the playable list. Possessing a mysterious intelligence on his forehead, a tool that allows him to pre-calculate every move, Fu Xuan presents himself as a quantum-like five-star character following the path of conservation.
During battles, Fuxuan’s skills give a variety of effects such as reducing damage and reversing health through his talent, absorbing damage to his teammates through Skills and dealing damage Quantum up all enemies through its Ultimate. As an ambitious, champion-oriented woman, her personality and fighting style is different from Jing Yuan’s, but being her team’s mainstay of defense is also respectable.

Players will too be able to select Lynx, an charming character from the respectable Landau family. She could be a four-star character with a natural interest in the exterior world. Developing up, Lynx got to be enchanted by the centuries-old records delineating Jarilo-VI’s energetic history, the mesmerizing stories of lovely auroras described by her instructors, and the gallant legends encompassing her Landau family.
All these captivating stories were complicatedly connected to the world past the city walls—an endless region known as the Snow Fields. Her affection for wandering alone into the misleading Snow Fields has given sufficient opportunity to sharpen her wild survival abilities.
Amid combat, as a Quantum-Type character taking after the Way of Wealth, Lynx brings a flexible cluster of recuperating capacities to her group, letting everybody breathe a small less demanding amid the interglacial travel.
