Fueled by her vengeance, the icy Justina Gu now offers her blade in Naraka: Bladepoint. There’s also a new game mode where 30 players can participate.

New Hero

Justina Gu is now available in Naraka: Bladepoint. She has ice skills that not only freeze her opponents but also provide her with protection when the situation gets dicey.

Her Ice Core skill, for example, temporarily shields her from incoming attacks by encasing herself within an icy aura. This effect lasts for five seconds, though she can get out of it after 1.5 seconds by dodging.

She can knock enemies back a short distance as well by entering the Arctic Wraith status. During this state, her skill is changed to Shadowswipe for 20 seconds, increasing attack by 5%.

Speaking of which, her Shadowswipe skill freezes her opponents by charging forward, dealing a small amount of damage in the process. Every time she hits an enemy with this, she increases her attack damage by 5% (15% max) while also resetting the duration of Arctic Wraith. Per cast of Arctic Wraith, she gains four dashes that can be used to move toward her targets.

It is important to keep in mind that her third skill variant and ultimate are not yet open at this time. You can unlock them by completing some Cultivation quests once they’re available in future updates.

New Mode

Omni's Nightmare
Omni's Nightmare Steam

Omni’s Nightmare is a 30-man faction asymmetric survival mode where you will fight as part of the Evil-Ents or Heroes.

If you are on the side of the Heroes, your main objective is to light up three Soul Sparks. Alternatively, you can win by completely eliminating all Evil-Ents on the battlefield.

On the other hand, Evil-Ents win when they satisfy any of these conditions:

  • When the countdown ends
  • Not all Soul Sparks are lit
  • No Heroes left on the battlefield

So, what can you get by participating in this new game mode? You’ll earn Dark Tide Coins which can be traded to Rift Dealers for equipment and items. You can read more about Omni’s Nightmare here.
