With that said, according to the leaks revealed by known leaker Dimbreath and present in Project Amber, Kuki Shinobu will be a Support/Healer, focused on not only providing healing but also dealing high amounts of continuos Electro Damage. She will have an HP% innate stat.


Kuki Shinobu Skills: Normal/Charged Attacks, Elemental Skill, and Burst

According to the many leaks, Shinobu’s NA will be composed of a sequence of 4 rapid strikes, while her charged attack will be composed of 2 fast sword strikes.

Her Elemental Skill, Sanctifying Ring, will allow Shinobu to create a  Grass Ring of Sanctification in exchange for a portion of her current HP, which will then follow the on-field character while dealing Electro damage and healing them based on Shinobu’s max HP. Her Elemental Burst, Goei Narukami Kariyama Rite, on the other hand, will allow Shinobu to deal continuous amounts of high Electro Damage in a medium AoE.
