Her elemental skill summons musical note water droplets around your character while dealing hydro damage to enemies. This elemental skill has the unique effect of applying wet status to you and your allies as Barbara can be swapped out while the skill is active. Because the skill stays out when swapped, this allows you to set up creative elemental reaction combinations to turn the tide of battle. However, this added benefit does come at a cost of being a double-edged sword as enemies can react to your wet status as well.
While her elemental skill is active, Barbara’s normal attacks will also have the ability to heal party members and nearby allies within co-op which scales off her max HP. Her charge attack will generate four times the amount of healing as well. If Barbara is swapped out the character within the elemental skill will regenerate a certain amount of HP in intervals that also scales off Barbara’s max HP.
Barbara’s elemental burst heals party members and co-op allies for a large amount that indeed also scales of Barbara’s max HP. Keep in mind this skill does not deal any damage but the animation does last long enough to get you enough of instability to get out of sticky situations and avoid possible death.
