Ultimate: The Future is Near

This ultimate skill encapsulates NewBabel's role as a defensive powerhouse.

Upon activation, she gains the [Taunt] and [Fanged Partner] statuses along with Control Immunity, making her the focal point of enemy attacks.

The unique aspect of this skill is the Riposte, which triggers upon receiving damage, dealing 100% Reality Damage and additional Genesis Damage based on her Reality Defense, effectively turning her into a counterattacking DPS. Riposte is seen as an extra action.

This ability underscores her dual role as a tank and DPS, capable of absorbing damage and countering it.

Skill 1: Old Idea

NewBabel's primary attack skill, Old Idea, showcases her ability to inflict substantial single-target damage.

The skill scales with her Reality Defense, meaning the higher her defense, the more damage she deals.

At its highest level, this skill not only delivers a massive 300% Reality Damage along with 200% of her Reality Defense as Genesis Damage but also grants her a Moxie point if she has an active [Shield].

Skill 2: A New Wave

A New Wave showcases NewBabel's role as a protector.

This mass buff skill provides all allies with a shield based on a percentage of her Reality Defense. At its maximum level, the skill offers a staggering shield strength of 375% of her Reality Defenses as HP for two rounds.

This skill emphasizes NewBabel's utility in maintaining team sustainability and fortifying defenses, making her an invaluable asset in any team composition.

Insight Abilities and Their Impact

Insight I: Guarding Instinct

This ability grants her a stack of [Guarding Instinct] every time she's attacked, lasting for 2 rounds.

Each stack increases her Reality Defense, boosting her damage mitigation and the effectiveness of her counterattacks and shields.

The accumulation of [Guarding Instinct] stacks ensures that she becomes increasingly tougher to take down as the battle progresses.

Insight II: Damage Mitigation

By directly reducing damage taken by 8% as soon as she enters battle, this Insight provides an immediate boost to NewBabel's survivability.

Insight III: Loyal Partner

The culmination of NewBabel's defensive capabilities is achieved upon gaining 15 [Guarding Instinct] stacks, transitioning her into [Loyal Partner] status.

This status marks a significant power spike, granting her immunity to Moxie reduction effects and permanently boosting her Reality DEF by 25%.
