How to Use Ningguang

Jade Screen Blocks Ranged Attacks

Ningguang Jade Screen
Jade Screen

Ningguang's greatest specialty is her ability to stop ranged attacks in order to handle enemies attacking from far away. Her Elemental Skill “Jade Screen” blocks hits from enemy projectiles, allowing her to neutralize ranged enemies while dishing out ranged attacks of her own, taking them out one-sidedly. Most groups of enemies will have at least one member which uses ranged attacks, so there are plenty of opportunities to use Ningguang when approaching groups of enemies.

Massive Damage with Ningguang's Starshatter

Ningguang Elemental Burst
Starshatter

If her Elemental Burst is not ready you can use the screen to boost he Normal and Charge Attacks. Ningguang's Charge attacks will not only deal additional damage when she generates Jade Stars from her Normal Attack, but will consume no stamina. Be sure to max out the number of Jade Stars with Normal Attacks before using Ningguang's Charge attack to deal as much damage as you can.

Utilizing the Jade Screen

After walking through Ningguang's Jade Screen she can immediately use her Elemental Burst will deal massive damage due to the presence of the screen. Keep in mind that Ningguang's Jade Screen provides an 15% Geo DMG Bonus to any character passing through it and should be the first Skill used whenever possible.

Essential for hunting ore

Ningguang 3.png

Ningguang's Passive Skill, “Trove of Marvelous Treasures”, provides the ability to view nearby ore veins on the minimap simply by having her in the party. As Ore can be used to produce weapons and Enhancement Ore for improving weapons, it's an item you definitely don't want to skip out on, so keeping Ningguang in your party will ensure that you always have access to as much as possible.
