Uses Of Layla's Elemental Skill

▲Creates a "Shooting Star" every 1.5 Seconds.

Provides An HP Scaling Shield

The main strength of Layla is with her powerful shields that scales from her HP. This shield comes from the Elemental Skill of Layla.

Off-Field Cryo Infliction

The shield creates a "shooting star" that tracks enemies and hit them with Cryo. The DMG scales from the ATK of Layla but unleashing its passive "Sweet Slumber Undisturbed" makes it scale from Max HP of Layla as well.

Uses Of Elemental Burst

Consistent Cryo DMG That Scales From HP

Elemental Burst of Layla allows consistent infliction of Cryo at a certain area. This has a low burst cost and has 100% uptime making this a great move for reactions.

Gives Additional "Shooting Star" For Each Hit

Every Hit from Elemental Burst will give shooting star to players protected by Layla's shields. This allows more damage from Elemental Skill to happen.
