Talent Sparkling Scatter.pngSparkling ScatterNormal Attack
Normal Attack: Shoots gems that deal Geo DMG. Upon hit, this grants Ningguang 1 Star Jade.

Charged Attack: Consumes a certain amount of stamina to fire off a giant gem that deals Geo DMG. If Ningguang has any Star Jades, unleashing a Charged Attack will cause the Star Jades to be fired at the enemy as well, dealing additional DMG.
Plunging Attack: Gathering the might of Geo, Ningguang plunges toward the ground from mid-air, damaging all opponents in her path. Deals AoE Geo DMG upon impact with the ground.

  • Ningguang's first constellation, Piercing Fragments, causes her Normal Attacks to deal AoE damage.
  • Ningguang fires 2 projectiles from her sides on Normal Attack, which may target two enemies at once. These jades will make a small arcing path, and thus may hit obstacles that are too close to the target.
  • The Charged Attack fires a single large projectile directly in front of Ningguang from her chest area. Star Jade stacks are fired on a small arcing path and may target enemies other than the Charge Attack target.
  • Star Jades are considered Charged Attacks and are affected by any Charged Attack modifiers, such as the Wanderer's Troupe 4-Piece bonus.
  • Star Jade stacks gained from Normal Attacks will be lost if Ningguang leaves the field.
  • All projectiles fired by her Normal and Charged Attacks will home towards targets but have a minimum turning radius. If the target is too far or moves too quickly, the projectile may miss.
    • Her projectiles' homing effect is a bit hit-or-miss with non-enemy targets. It will home in on anything that is on equal level to or above Ningguang's firing height (her chest area), such as airborne birds, but it will not necessarily home in on things below her firing height, such as foxes or ores when standing slightly above them.
  • Ningguang's Normal and Charged Attacks are considered heavy attacks, which can be used to break ore and other Geo constructs, but her Plunging Attack does not.
    • Against Geo Hypostasis and Large Geo Slimes, her Normal and Charged Attacks can whittle away at their Geo pillars or armor, but the enemies themselves are immune to her attacks.

Talent Jade Screen.pngJade ScreenElemental Skill
Ningguang creates a Jade Screen out of gold, obsidian and her great opulence, dealing AoE Geo DMG.

Jade Screen

  • Blocks opponents' projectiles.
  • Endurance scales based on Ningguang's Max HP.

Jade Screen is considered a Geo Construct and can be used to block certain attacks, but cannot be climbed. Only one Jade Screen may exist at a time.

  • This skill generates 3 elemental particles when it hits at least 1 target.
    • The Jade Screen has an elemental particle cooldown of 6 seconds. With the 2nd constellation, consecutive use of the skill will not generate any particles.
  • If it is not destroyed first, the Jade Screen will automatically shatter after 30 seconds.
  • While the Jade Screen can block projectiles, it is not considered a shield.
  • The Jade Screen can be used to activate some pressure plates, but not all of them.
  • With Ningguang's Passive Talent 2 Strategic Reserve, a character that passes through the Jade Screen will gain a 12% Geo DMG Bonus for 10s.
  • With Ningguang's 2nd constellation, when Jade Screen is shattered, its CD will reset. This effect can only take place every 6 seconds.
  • With Ningguang's 4th constellation, allies within a 10m radius of the Jade Screen take 10% less Elemental damage.
  • With Ningguang's 5th constellation, Jade Screen's talent level is increased by 3.

Talent Starshatter.pngStarshatterElemental Burst
Gathering a great number of gems, Ningguang scatters them all at once, sending homing projectiles at her opponents that deal massive Geo DMG.

If Starshatter is cast when a Jade Screen is nearby, the Jade Screen will fire additional gem projectiles at the same time.

  • When Jade Screen is nearby, 6 additional gem projectiles are launched. In an open area, 1 to 2 gems will hit the ground. It's not recommended to use the Burst in a confined space, because the gems are likely blocked by obstacles.
  • With Ningguang's 3rd constellation, Starshatter's talent level is increased by 3.
  • This skill fires 6 gems without Jade Screen nearby and fires 12 gems with Jade Screen nearby.

Talent Backup Plan.pngBackup Plan1st Ascension Passive
When Ningguang is in possession of Star Jades, her Charged Attack does not consume Stamina.
Talent Strategic Reserve.pngStrategic Reserve4th Ascension Passive
A character that passes through the Jade Screen will gain a 12% Geo DMG Bonus for 10s.

The buff is applied when a character enters the "buff application box" on the Jade Screen.

  • The buff is applied on entry only.
    • Standing inside the box will not continuously refresh the duration of the buff; a character must exit and re-enter to do so.
    • Switching characters while inside the box is considered an "entry," so the new character will receive the buff.
  • Entry is judged based on a character's bounding volume; if any part of the bounding volume starts overlapping with the buff application box, the character will receive the buff. (I.e., taller characters will get the buff more easily. It's not clear exactly what shape the game uses to bound characters, but it's probably a cylinder or capsule of some sort.)
    • The box extends upwards about 1/3 of the way up the screen. This height is more than a character can jump on flat ground, but can be reached on uneven surfaces.
    • The box extends downwards almost 1 full screen height below the bottom of the screen, which is more than enough for any character to receive the buff without actually touching the screen.
    • The box extends width-wise and length-wise to the outer edges of the square bases on the sides of the screen.
