How to play

Kaleido - Fundamentals
  • Perform a 3-Ping to store its color in the Secondary Color Coolant slot, then hold Basic Attack to perform a Sweep attack
    • This Sweep attack clears the current Secondary Color and stores the Main Color as 1 Backup Paint
    • Up to 3 Backup Paints can be stored at a time
  • Cast Signature Move to enter the Painter's Realm, gain a free 3-Ping, and rearrange existing orbs into more 3-Pings
    • Ping any Signal Orb to begin riding Kaleido's gunlance
      • If this ping is a 3-Ping, Finishing Touch's Base DMG will be increased by 20%, indicated by the on-screen gauge, up to a max increase of 100% from five 3-Pings
    • Colliding with an enemy on the gunlance after pinging a Signal Orb will damage enemies within range
      • If Kaleido has any Backup Paints, 1 will be spent on hit to gain a set of 3-Pings in that color
  • Signature Move can be cast at any time with Painter's Realm active to perform Finishing Touch, dealing Ice DMG in a large area and clearing the Painter's Realm
    • Finishing Touch will leave an Improvisation behind that lasts 5 seconds and heals allies standing within the area
Kaleido - Additional Information
  • Both Finishing Touch and the initial activation of Painter's Realm trigger Time Lag Calculation
  • Kaleido automatically performs a free Blue Orb 3-Ping when switched in during combat, filling the Secondary Color Coolant slot and allowing for an easy Sweep attack to gain 1 Backup Paint
  • Sweep attacks have Super Armor, grant Kaleido 15 Signature Energy, and heal her and nearby allies on cast
    • If the colors in the Main Color and Secondary Color Coolant slots match, the Sweep attack grants Kaleido a 6 second Ice DMG increase
    • If the colors in the Main Color and Secondary Color Coolant slots differ, the Sweep attack grants Kaleido a 6 second Extra DMG Bonus increase
    • At SS3-Rank, either Sweep attack will grant both the Ice DMG and Extra DMG Bonus increase simultaneously
  • Kaleido will dismount from her gunlance if either Dodge is held or no orbs are pinged within a certain period, and will remount upon pinging another Signal Orb
  • Pinging a 3-Ping immediately before triggering Finishing Touch will duplicate that color into the Secondary Color Coolant slot
