Charged Attack: Perform a more precise Aimed Shot with increased DMG. While aiming, stone crystals will accumulate on the arrowhead. A fully charged crystalline arrow will deal Geo DMG.
Plunging Attack: Fires off a shower of arrows in mid-air before falling and striking the ground, dealing AoE DMG upon impact.
Gorou Talent Inuzaka All Round Defense
Inuzaka All-Round Defense (Elemental Skill)
Deals AoE Geo DMG and sets up a General’s War-Banner.

General’s War-Banner

Provides up to 3 buffs to active characters within the skill’s AoE based on the number of Geo characters in the party at the time of casting:

– 1 Geo character: Adds “Standing Firm” – DEF Bonus.
– 2 Geo characters: Adds “Impregnable” – Increased resistance to interruption.
– 3 Geo characters: Adds “Crunch” – Geo DMG Bonus.

Gorou can deploy only 1 General’s War Banner on the field at any one time.
Characters can only benefit from 1 General’s War Banner at a time. When a party member leaves the field, the active buff will last for 2s.

Adjust the location of the skill.
Gorou Talent Juuga Forward Unto Victory
Juuga: Forward Into Victory (Elemental Burst)
Displaying his valor as a general, Gorou deals Aoe Geo DMG and creates a field known as General’s Glory to embolden his comrades.

General’s Glory

This field has the following properties:

– Like the General’s War Banner created by Inazuka All-Round Defense, provides buffs to active characters within the skill’s AoE based on the number of Geo characters in the party. Also moves together with your active character.
– Generates 1 Crystal Collapse every 1.5s that deals AoE Geo DMG to 1 opponent within the skill’s AoE.
– Pulls 1 elemental shard in the skill’s AoE to your active character’s position every 1.5s (elemental shards are created by Crystallize reactions).

If a General’s War banner created by Gorou currently exists on the field when his ability is used, it will be destroyed. In addition, for the duration of General’s Glory, Gorou’s Elemental Skill “Inazuka All-Round Defense” will not create the General’s War Banner.

If Gorou falls, the effects of General’s Glory will be cleared.
