    • Liu Ren Divination: If enemies attempt to apply debuffs to allies while the Matrix of Prescience is active, all allies will resist all debuffs during the current action. This effect can only be triggered once per activation of Matrix of Prescience.
    • Dun Jia Divination: When Fu Xuan’s Ultimate is used, heals all other allies by 5% of Fu Xuan’s Max HP + 80 HP.
    • Tai Yi Divination: When Matrix of Prescience is active, Fu Xuan will regenerate 40 extra Energy when she uses her Skill.
  • Ultimate Evolution (Ultimate) – Deal Quantum DMG to all enemies and obtains one trigger count for the HP Restore from Fu Xuan’s Talent.
  • After Woe comes Weal (Talent) – While Fu Xuan has not been knocked down, Misfortune Avoidance is applied to the entire team. While affected by Misfortune Avoidance, allies take 12% less DMG. HP Restore will be triggered for Fu Xuan when her HP falls to 50% or less of her Max HP. It’s important to note that this effect can be triggered only one time per battle by default, and can possess up to two trigger counts maximum.
  • Shield of Fate (Technique) – After the Technique is used, all team members receive a Barrier, lasting for 20 seconds. This Barrier can block all enemy attacks and the team will not enter battle. Entering battle by attacking enemies while the Barrier is active will have Fu Xuan automatically activate Matrix of Prescience at the start of the battle for 2 turns.

Players are already seeing Fu Xuan as a viable character, especially considering there are only two other shielders in the game. Her skill looks very interesting, and players are already figuring out how to include Fu Xuan in their teams.
