The effects are being speculated to be able to apply some damage reduction and some healing for the shielded character. This is not yet confirmed and we will update this page as soon as more info has been obtained.

Elemental Burst Deals Cryo Damage in a Wide Radius

Her elemental burst was also showcased and it's capable of dealing cryo damage in a huge area. As demonstrated during the livestream, its radius is extremely wide so it is expected to be great when tackling domains.

Flavor Text:
When she first started bartending, Diona found that no matter how much ice she put in her cocktails, it would never do a drunkard any harm. That all changed when she received her Vision – now she can form ice cold enough to cause severe brainfreeze. Five out of five stars!

Tosses out a special cold brew that deals AoE Cryo DMG and creates a Drunken Mist in an AoE.
Drunken Mist: Deals continuous Cryo DMG to enemies within the field. Continuously regenerates the HP of characters within the field.
Flavor Text:
A horrific mix that even Diona considers inhumane. The horrifying foretaste should be left for one's enemies. It has a crisp aftertaste, but unfortunately, one can only feel it on one's nose and skin.
