      • Weapon: Polearm
      • Her Excellency, the Almighty Narukami Ogosho, promised the people of Inazuma an unchanging eternity.
      • The Raiden Shogun’s Elemental Skill, Transcendence: Baleful Omen, will grant each nearby party member an Eye of Stormy Judgment that will perform coordinated attacks alongside them when party members deal DMG. Party members affected by Eye of Stormy Judgment will have their Elemental Burst DMG increased based on the Energy Cost of the Elemental Burst. When they use their Elemental Bursts, they will accrue Resolve for the Raiden Shogun’s Chakra Desiderata.
      • “When the Raiden Shogun uses her Elemental Burst, Secret Art: Musou Shinsetsu, she will use up all the Resolve accrued by Chakra Desiderata and deal AoE Electro DMG using her Musou no Hitotachi, entering the Musou Isshin state. While in this state, the Raiden Shogun will wield her tachi in battle, with her attacks restoring Energy for her party members. In addition, her resistance to interruption is increased, and she is immune to Electro-Charged reaction DMG. The DMG dealt by Musou no Hitotachi and Musou Isshin’s attacks will be based on the number of Chakra Desiderata’s Resolve stacks consumed when this skill is used.
    • 4-Star Character “Crowfeather Kaburaya” Kujou Sara (Electro)

      • Weapon: Bow
      • A general of the Tenryou Commission. Bold, decisive, and skilled in battle.
      • Kujou Sara’s Elemental Skill, Tengu Stormcall allows her next fully-charged Aimed Shot to grant her Crowfeather Cover. The arrow fired will leave a Crowfeather behind that will trigger Tengu Juurai: Ambush, which deals AoE Electro DMG and also increases the ATK of nearby characters.
      • When she uses her Elemental Burst, Subjugation: Koukou Sendou, she will strike a target area with Tengu Juurai: Titanbreaker, dealing AoE Electro DMG and causing several consecutive Tengu Juurai: Stormcluster to spread out, dealing more instances of AoE Electro DMG. These Tengu Juurai can also increase the ATK of characters near the point of impact.

      • Sangonomiya Kokomi’s Elemental Skill, Kurage’s Oath summons a “Bake-Kurage” created from water. “Bake-Kurage” will restore HP for all nearby party members periodically, and deal Hydro DMG to nearby enemies.
      • When Sangonomiya Kokomi uses her Elemental Burst, Nereid’s Ascension, she dons her Ceremonial Garment, which temporarily increases the DMG dealt by her Normal, Charged Attacks, and Elemental Skill. During “Ceremonial Garment,” when Normal and Charged Attacks hit opponents, Kokomi will restore HP for all nearby party members. During her Elemental Burst, she is also able to walk on the water’s surface.

      • Aloy’s Elemental Skill, Frozen Wilds throws a Freeze Bomb in the targeted direction and triggers an explosion. After the explosion, the Freeze Bomb scatters into multiple Chillwater Bomblets that explode on contact with opponents immediately or after a short delay. When a Freeze Bomb or Chillwater Bomblet hits an opponent, the opponent’s ATK is decreased and Aloy receives the Coil effect, increasing her ATK. When there is a certain number of Coil stacks, Aloy’s Normal Attack DMG will convert to Cryo DMG.
      • Her Elemental Burst, Prophecies of Dawn, sees her throw a Power Cell filled with Cryo in the targeted direction, which she then detonates with an arrow, dealing AoE Cryo DMG.
      • How to Obtain “Savior From Another World” Aloy (Cryo):
