When an ally is in danger, Luocha’s unique Skill ensures immediate “emergency healing” without depleting any Skill points. Furthermore, his Ultimate ability, “Death Wish,” dispels buffs from all enemies and inflicts Imaginary damage, proving his versatility on the battlefield.

Yukong Character Details

Yukong, the Sky-Faring Helm Master and leader of Xianzhou Luofu, oversees all flight-related matters, including commerce, cargo, and passengers.

As an Imaginary-Type character following the Path of Harmony, Yukong’s skill set revolves around providing support to her companions. Though her frontline battles may be in the past, her battle mindset and instinct remain as sharp as ever.
