The Elemental Burst —or Burst for short— is a talent that requires Energy to use and is usually more powerful than the Elemental Skill. In community circles, it is sometimes referred to as "ultimate" (or "ult" for short) or "Q" (in reference to the corresponding default hotkey on PC).

Using an Elemental Burst grants a varying amount of invincibility frames (iframes) during its duration where the character is immune to damage.

Overview

Every character has the talent associated with the Elemental Burst unlocked by default. In order for it to be used, it's required to fulfill two conditions:

  • Just like with the Elemental Skill, the Burst must not be on cooldown. When it's on cooldown, the Elemental Burst icon on the HUD located at the bottom-right side of the screen will show how much time it takes for it to be ready again, similar to Elemental Skills.
  • The character must have gathered as much energy as the Burst's Energy Cost indicates. The Energy collected since the last time the Burst was used by the on-field character is reflected in the Elemental Burst icon as it fills with the character's element's color. Excess Energy is not taken into account.

Whenever both conditions are fulfilled, the Elemental Burst icon will glow and an audio cue will play, indicating that it's ready to be used. When a character off field has their Burst ready, the icon will appear next to their portrait and life bar. On certain mobile versions, this icon is replaced by a checkmark of the same color. The same checkmark will appear below other players' names in co-op and in the sidebar. After using an Elemental Burst, all Energy will be consumed and the skill will enter a short cooldown (Energy can still be gathered while in cooldown).
