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 | 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. |
This field has the following properties:
If a General’s War Banner created by Gorou currently exists on the field when this 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.

|Duration||9 Seconds||9 Seconds|

Gorou displays his general’s valor dealing AoE Geo Damage and creating the “General’s Glory” field to embolden his comrades.
General’s Glory provides the same buffs as the General’s War Banner created by Gorou’s Elemental Skill. Various buffs are provided to the active character in 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.
