Yuuban Meigen (charged)Consumes a certain amount of Stamina, gathers a build-up of high wind pressure, and deals AoE Anemo DMG after a short casting time.
Yuuban Meigen (plunge) Calling upon the power of Anemo, the Wanderer plunges toward the ground from mid-air, damaging all opponents in his path. Deals AoE Anemo DMG upon impact with the ground.

Elemental Skill

Hanega: Song of the WindConcentrates the power of the winds to break free from the shackles of the earth, dealing AoE Anemo DMG before leaping into the air and entering the Windfavored state.

The Wanderer cannot perform Plunging Attacks in this state. When he uses Normal and Charged Attacks, they will be converted into Kuugo: Fushoudan and Kuugo: Toufukai respectively; the DMG they deal and their AoE will be increased, and their DMG will be considered Normal and Charged Attack DMG respectively. Kuugo: Toufukai will not consume Stamina.
The Wanderer will hover persistently during this time. While this state is active, the Wanderer’s movements gain the following properties: Persistently consumes Kuugoryoku Points to maintain this hovering state.
When sprinting, additional Kuugoryoku Points will be consumed for the Wanderer to accelerate mid-air. Holding sprint will cause persistent Kuugoryoku Point consumption to maintain speed. This effect will replace his default sprint.
Jumping expends extra Kuugoryoku Points to increase hovering height. Holding a jump will cause persistent Kuugoryoku Point consumption to keep increasing hovering height.

Running out of Kuugoryoku Points will end the Windfavored state.
A second cast during the duration of Windfavored will also end it.

Elemental Burst

Kyougen: Five Ceremonial PlaysCompresses the atmosphere into a singular vacuum that grinds all troubles away, dealing multiple instances of AoE Anemo DMG. If the character is in the Windfavored state due to the skill “Hanega: Song of the Wind,” the Windfavored state will end after casting.
