Raiden’s Normal attack is called Origin and its effects are:
- Normal Attack: Performs up to 5 consecutive spear strikes.
- Charged Attack: Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to perform an upward slash.
- Plunging Attack: Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.
Her Elemental Skill, Transcendence Baleful Omen, deals Electro damage and grants to party member Eye of the Storm Judgment. This effect deals additional Electro AOE damage to enemies when other characters attack and deal damage to them. It also increases their Elemental Burst damage based on the Energy Cost of the Elemental Burst during the effects duration. The effect can initiate one coordinated attack every 0.9s per party and coordinated attacks generated by characters not controlled by you deal 20% of the normal damage.
Baal’s Chakra Desiderata effect also assists with Elemental Burst damage. When other party members use their Elemental Bursts, the Raiden Shogun will build up Resolve stacks based on their Energy Cost. Maximum number of stacks is 60 and the resolved gained by the effect will be cleared 300s after Raiden Shogun leaves the battlefield. After unlocking the passive talent “Wishes Unnumbered”, when nearby party members gain Elemental Orbs or Particles, Chakra Desiderata gains 2 Resolve Stacks. This effect can occur once every 3s.
Her Elemental Burst, Secret Art Mushou Shinsetsu, deals AOE Electro damage while using Musou Isshin in combat. Damage in this state is increased based on the number of Chakra Desiderata’s Resolved Stacks consumed when the skill is used. When in this state Baal switches weapons and uses a Sword instead of her Polearm. Her Normal, Charged and Plunging Attacks are infused with Electro damage and cannot be overridden. When the attacks hit enemies, they regenerate energy for her and her party. Her resistance in interruption also increases and becomes immune to Electro Charged reaction damage. When Musou Isshin is active, her attacks are considered Elemental Burst damage.
