Raiden Shogun Baal Rating

The Raiden Shogun has the highest rating overall with her best point as a support for the party. She is quite great against bosses and mobs, but she has a low score with exploration. She offers high active and passive Electro damage, has a high Energy Recharge rate, increases the team’s Elemental Burst damage, and can regenerate Energy for the Team. Her weakness is that she can cook any kind of food and her skills will not work well against a certain character with the Electro element.

Normal Attack

  • Normal attack – 5 consecutive spear hits
  • Charge attack – Consume some stamina to unleash a strong attack performing an upward slash
  • Plunge attack – Jump from a certain height and use a normal attack to strike enemies below dealing AoE damage.

Transcendence: Baleful Omen

The Raiden Shogun unveils a shard of her Euthymia, dealing Electro DMG to nearby opponents, and granting nearby party members the Eye of Stormy Judgment.

Eye of Stormy Judgement
When characters with this buff attack deal DMG to opponents, the Eye will unleash a coordinated attack, dealing AoE Electro DMG at the opponent’s position.

Characters who gain the Eye of Stormy Judgment will have their Elemental Burst DMG increased based on the Energy Cost of the Elemental Burst during the Eye’s duration.

  • The Eye can initiate 1 coordinated attack every 0.9s per party.
  • Coordinated attacks generated by characters not controlled by you deal 20% of the normal DMG.

Secret Art: Musou Shinsetsu

The Raiden Shogun unleashes the Musou no Hitotachi and deals AoE Electro DMG, using Musou Isshin in combat for a certain duration afterward. The DMG dealt by Musou no Hitotachi and Musou Isshin’s attacks will be increased based on the number of Chakra Desiderata’s Resolve stacks consumed when the skill is used.

Musou Isshin
While in this state, the Raiden Shogun’s Normal, Charged, and Plunging ATKs are infused with Electro, which cannot be overridden. When her attacks hit opponents, she regenerates Energy for nearby party members. Energy can be restored this way once every 1s, and this effect can be triggered 5 times throughout the skill’s duration.

Chakra Desiderata
When nearby party members (excluding the Raiden Shogun herself) use their Elemental Bursts, the Raiden Shogun will build up Resolve stacks based on the Energy Cost of these Elemental Bursts. The maximum number of Resolve stacks is 60.

The Resolve gained by Chakra Desiderata will be cleared 300s after the Raiden Shogun leaves the field.
