Qian Sui’s Abilities

Primary Skill: Tide Aspis

Tide Aspis is a defensive skill that allows Qian Sui to create a shield made of water that can protect him from incoming frontal attacks. 

The shield is not just a passive defense but also has an offensive capability when recast or when it disappears, as it deals AOE Damage to enemies in front of Qian Sui.

When held, the shield automatically activates the skill Striking Punch and the skill lasts for five seconds, with a base cooldown of 14 seconds.

Secondary Skill: Striking Punch

Striking Punch is the secondary skill of Qian Sui. Activating the skill allows Qian Sui to deliver a powerful blow to opponents in front of him. The more stacks of Fist Sensation accumulated, the more damage can be dealt with Striking Punch. 

This encourages Qian Sui to be constantly on the move to gain stacks of Fist Sensation, to maximize the damage output of Striking Punch. The skill Striking Punch has no cooldown but requires 3 ammunition on usage.

One stack of Fist Sensation has gained every 1 meter of distance traveled for 2 seconds. Per stack gained, it adds 5% more DMG to Striking Punch.

Punch and Shield gameplay with Qian Sui

Always constantly pay attention to where you are on the battlefield, especially early on. While he can swiftly reach absurdly high movement speeds, doing so also makes it possible for enemies to sneak up on you, causing much damage when your shield is not in effect.

He is vulnerable in areas not protected by Tidal Aspis, so always watch your back, as Qian Sui requires fighting in front of the enemy.

Additionally, always remember the talent trees and weapons you select, as the granting bonuses can affect what you have equipped on Qian Sui. Carefully thinking about your builds gives you better bonuses that increase your damage in battle.

5 Best Ascensions

Qian Sui’s talent tree build achieves the best outcome by enhancing the following:

1. Ebb and Flow

2. Mighty Stream

Using Qian Sui’s Mighty Stream extends the duration of Tidal Aspis from 2 seconds and increases by two per upgrade. For every attack blocked by the shield, it recovers a 1-second duration.

By using his Striking Punch to close the distance with enemies while Tidal Aspis absorb their shots, Qian Sui can extend the lifetime of his shield and stay protected for longer periods.

3. Unfathomable Ocean

The Unfathomable Ocean increases the max shield by 50% base, up to 150% on the last upgrade, for five seconds after the Tidal Aspis shield drops.  This allows Qian Sui to maintain defense for a longer period

On the final upgrade, Unfathomable Ocean grants Qian Sui to temporarily strengthen his Max Shield, tanking any coming hits he couldn’t block with the Tidal Aspis shield.

4. Unbearable Hurtle

This Ascension reduces damage from enemies starting at -30% and increasing to -80% upon hitting. Depending on the upgrade level, it increases damage dealt to enemies by 30% to 100% for five seconds.

Teammates will also have this, which makes this essential for powerful combo hits to enemies, especially when they stagger.

5. Rogue Wave

Rogue Wave increases Striking Punch damage from 10% to 20%, dependent on the upgrade level, per stack of Fist Sensation. 

It makes Qian Sui’s movement more rewarding and even deadlier when combined with his mobility. This Ascension also increases gains of Fist Sensation stacks and their duration.
