When using Resonance Skill, you will gain 3 Huajin, allowing you to take reduced damage 3 times.. During this time, using the 4th combo of Basic Attack or by receiving attacks, you can fill your Forte Circuit.

Counter Attack Enemy's Attacks To Activate Special Attack


When Taoqi receives damage while on heavy attack mode, or after a period of time a buffed attack will occur. This can also be done during outro attacks.
