Elemental Skill: Nights of Formal Focus

  • Puts forth a shield known as the Curtain of Slumber, dealing AoE Cryo damage.
  • The Curtain of Slumber’s damage Absorption is based on Layla’s Max HP and absorbs Cryo damage with 250% effectiveness. When the shield is deployed, Layla will have Cryo applied to her briefly.
  • Night Stars and Shooting Stars: While the Curtain of Slumber is active, it will create one Night Star that will be attached to it every 1.5 seconds. When a character protected by this shield uses an Elemental Skill, two Night Stars will be created. Night Stars can be created once every 0.3 seconds in this way. A maximum of four Night Stars can be accumulated at any one time.
    • Once the Curtain of Slumber has accumulated four Night Stars and there are opponents nearby, these Night Stars will transform into homing Shooting Stars that will be fired off in sequence, dealing Cryo damage to any opponents hit.
    • If the Curtain of Slumber’s duration ends or it is destroyed, the Night Stars will disappear. If they are already being fired off as Shooting Stars, these Shooting Stars will last until this wave of shots ends.
