His charged attack has a second charge level called a Prop Arrow. At the simplest level, Prop Arrows will summon a hat to taunt surrounding enemies. If Lyney has above 60% HP, he will also consume 20% of his max HP to grant himself a stack of Prop Surplus, increasing the damage of his next skill.
The hat that taunts enemies will deal single-target pyro damage when defeated or expires after 4 seconds. Since only one hat can exist on the field at a time, unless you have his first constellation, creating a new hat with another charge attack will destroy the existing hat and cause it to deal pyro damage to an enemy prematurely.
As Lyney performs his special charged attack, he will occasionally deal an extra hit of pyro damage known as a Spiritbreath Thorn. The animation resembles a sword plunging into the ground. This is a weak hit of pyro damage mainly utilized for its Pneuma properties in relation to the Pneuma and Ousia system within Fontaine’s exploration.
|Lyney does a flourish with his hat, unleashing a firework surprise! When used, he will clear all current Prop Surplus stacks and deal AoE Pyro DMG to opponents in front of him. DMG will be increased according to the stacks cleared, and this will also regenerate Lyney’s HP based on his Max HP. |
When a Grin-Malkin Hat created by Lyney is on the field, the fireworks will cause it to explode, dealing AoE Pyro DMG equal to that of a Pyrotechnic Strike. The DMG dealt through the Grin-Malkin Hat in this way is considered Charged Attack DMG.
|Attributes||Level 1||Level 15|
|Skill DMG Bonus||53.2% ATK Per Stack||126.35% ATK Per Stack|
|HP Regeneration||20% Per Stack||20% Per Stack|
|Cooldown||15 Seconds||15 Seconds|
Lyney’s elemental skill deals AoE pyro damage in front of him, restores HP, and detonates any hats present on the field for AoE damage instead of single-target damage. Prop Surplus stacks not only enhance the skill’s damage but also boost the HP regeneration that Lyney receives. Therefore, it’s crucial to conclude Lyney’s rotation with his skill rather than initiating it with his skill.
|Wondrous Trick: Miracle Parade|
|Unleashing his magic, Lyney turns hinself into a Grin-Malkin Cat that can move around quickly. (Not to be mistaken for the Grin-Malkin Hat. They’re two different props!) |
When the Grin-Malkin Cat gets close to opponents, it will send flames falling down on them, dealing at most 1 instance of Pyro DMG to each opponent. When the duration ends, he will dismiss the Grin-Malkin Cat and ignite fireworks that deal AoE Pyro DMG, summon 1 Grin-Malkin Hat, and grant himself 1 Prop Surplus stack.
Grin-Malkin Cat can be actively canceled.
|Attributes||Level 1||Level 15|
|Explosive Firework DMG||414%||983.25%|
|Duration||3 Seconds||3 Seconds|
|Cooldown||15 Seconds||15 Seconds|
Lyney’s elemental burst is flexible and can be used to start off his rotation or in the middle of his rotation. During the 3 seconds that he turns into a cat in a hat, you can move around and the hat will deal pyro damage to any nearby enemies, but only once per enemy.
To finish off the 3 seconds of the burst, or if you cancel it early, the cat will explode for AoE pyro damage, grant Lyney a stack of Prop Surplus, and summon a hat identical to the ones created from his special charged attack.
