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.
Attributes Level 1 Level 15
Skill DMG 107.2% 254.6%
DEF Increase 206 490
Geo DMG Bonus 15% 15%
Duration 10 Seconds 10 Seconds
Cooldown 10 Seconds 10 Seconds

The General’s War Banner provides buffs to active party members within its AoE and the more Geo characters in the party, the stronger the buffs.

Gorou can only deploy a single General’s War Banner at any given time. Also, characters can only benefit from one General’s War Banner at a time. Any active buffs will be cleared shortly after the character leaves the banner’s AoE.

Juuga: Forward Unto 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 Inuzaka 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 “Inuzaka All-Round Defense” will not create the General’s War Banner. If Gorou falls, the effects of General’s Glory will be cleared.
Attributes Level 1 Level 15
Burst DMG 98.22% DEF 233.26% DEF
Crystal Collapse DMG 61.3% DEF 145.59% DEF
Duration 9 Seconds 9 Seconds
Cooldown 20 Seconds 20 Seconds
Energy Cost 80 80

General’s Glory provides the same buffs as the General’s War Banner created by Gorou’s Elemental Skill. Various buffs are granted to the active character within the skill’s AoE based on the number of Geo characters in the party, but this field moves with the active character.

At regular intervals, a Crystal Collapse occurs, dealing AoE Geo Damage to one enemy within the field and pulling an Elemental Shard from the Crystallize reaction to the active character’s location.

When Gorou uses his Elemental Burst, if there is a General’s War Banner on the field, it will be destroyed. Also, while General’s Glory is in effect, using Gorou’s Elemental Skill will not create a General’s War Banner.
