A monster who serves the Abyss Order and commands lightning while singing the praises of the darkness.
These are the evangelists and the scholars of the Abyss. Their violent lightning strikes the hearts of unbelievers with dark wisdom, warped by the shadowy depths of an eternal night, its violet glow proclaiming the existence of a great power that corrodes human intellect.

Abyss Lector: Violet Lightning are Electro-aligned Abyss Lectors capable of manipulating intense abyssal energy. These creatures are evangelists that can chant malefic poetry of the Abyss to command their powers.

Abilities and Attacks

A creature of the Abyss Order that calls upon thunder and lightning in praise of the darkness. It possesses some ability to disrupt elemental powers, and some of its attacks will drain characters' Elemental Energy when dealing DMG to them.

Abyss Lector that incants the power of Electro. Their attacks are capable of draining Energy, similar to the Engulfing Storm Ley Line Disorder.

Names are unofficial. (Abyssal Light is taken from its voiceline. The Violet Lightning is named after its title.)

  • Thunderbolt: Summons a falling bolt of Electro energy to strike its foe dealing AoE Electro DMG. When below 50% HP it will summon 2 bolts consecutively. When its shield is active it will summon 3 bolts consecutively, dealing.
  • Thunder Wave: Conjures a wave of lightning bolts striking down in a line towards you dealing Electro DMG. When its shield is active, it will unleash two waves of lightning at once, usually from different directions but sometimes in a straight line.
  • Thunderous Declaration: When a character strays near to the Abyss Lector, it will implode itself with a powerful electromagnetic blast dealing AoE Electro DMG.
  • Storming Sanctum: After some time has passed or its health falls below a certain threshold, the Abyss Lector: Violet Lightning will imbue itself with a powerful Electro shield, providing it immunity to all DMG until its shield is broken. Upon the shield's activation, deals AoE Electro DMG in a large area around itself and causing heavy knockback. The Abyss Lector also gains new/upgraded attacks when it is equipped with a Electro shield.
    • The Lector will immediately be defeated after its shield has been destroyed, even though it still has HP remaining.
  • Abyssal Light: Conjures 3 Electro orbs that launch towards the player's current position, dealing Electro DMG and draining energy on hit.
  • The Violet Lightning: Summons many Electro orbs around it, after a short pause the orbs will be sent out in all directions and then stop for a second before exploding, dealing AoE Electro DMG and draining energy on hit. This attack is only used when in the Storming Sanctum state.

Previews

Strategy

Like the Abyss Heralds, Lectors are fairly weak when unshielded. Care should still be taken to avoid their attacks to prevent unnecessary energy drain.

Upon reaching critical health, the Lector will activate an Electro shield that permanently applies said status onto them, opening them up to more consistent elemental reactions but also enhances their attacks. Due to the nature of Electro, it is highly recommended to use Pyro or Cryo attacks to inflict Overloaded and Superconduct, both of which deal high damage compared to Electro-Charged or Swirl.

Once the Lector's shield breaks, they are automatically defeated.

To break the Electro shield quickly, there is a strategy of using Bennett with a four-piece set effect of Thundering Fury while in the radius created by Fantastic Voyage. The four-piece effect decreases the cooldown of the user's Elemental Skill by 1 second. Inside the radius and with the four-piece set, Bennett can repeatedly use Passion Overload, which has very fast cooldown and high Gauge application, dealing massive damage in the process. His sixth constellation, Fire Ventures with Me, can also inflict additional damage from Pyro-imbued auto-attacks and further reduce Passion Overload's cooldown.[2]

Alternatively Jean's Dandelion Breeze (or Anemo Traveler's Palm Vortex) can repeatedly Swirl the character's Pyro imbuement from Bennett's Fantastic Voyage without the sixth constellation being necessary.

Chongyun's Spirit Blade: Chonghua's Layered Frost is a Cryo alternative if players do not have or are not using Bennett.
