How to play

Qilin - Fundamentals
  • Perform 3-Pings to light up the Follow-Up Orb in orb slot 1, then ping the lit-up Follow-Up Orb to deal additional Ice DMG
    • The Follow-Up Orb will only light up for around 1.1 seconds after reaching specific points in each 3-Ping attack animation
  • Activate Signature Move to enter Selfless State, boosting DEF and Ice DMG, and converting all existing Signal Orbs into additional Signature Energy
    • The Follow-Up Orb will turn white and can be cast to fire Sonic Blast, a ranged Ice DMG projectile
    • After the 3rd or 4th Basic Attack sequence, the Follow-Up Orb will light up, and can be repeatedly cast to perform up to 5 sequences of Flowing Whirlpool, summoning a barrage of fist strikes in a wide frontal area
    • Selfless State ends when all Signature Energy is consumed or when Signature Move is manually toggled off, granting 4 random Signal Orbs in the process
Qilin - Additional Information
  • Triggering Flowing Whirlpool will activate all QTEs if they are not on cooldown
  • The final heavy blow of the Red Orb 3-Ping and the Follow-Up Orb after a Blue Orb 3-Ping will temporarily freeze enemies hit
  • The Follow-Up Orb after a Yellow Orb 3-Ping will gather enemies together
    • Qilin will perform this attack when switched in
  • Flowing Whirlpool will weakly gather enemies during the fist barrage
  • Flowing Whirlpool and all Follow-Up Orbs that follow a 3-Ping have Super Armor
  • Qilin can store up to 120 Signature Energy for use in Selfless State
    • Each Sonic Blast costs 15 Signature Energy
    • All 5 sequences of Flowing Whirlpool cost 38 Signature Energy in total
    • If Qilin has less Signature Energy remaining than what an attack costs, he will still complete the full attack sequence and exit Selfless State immediately afterwards
  • Basic Attacks in Selfless State do not generate Signal Orbs nor Signature Energy
