Wuthering Waves of Changli – Release Date, Role, Banner and Full Set Explained


To the despair of all those who, like me, spent their Astrite reserves in the Yinlin banner, Windy waves Version 1.1 will feature the playable debut of Changli and Jinhsi. And although Magistrate Jinzhou leaked revealing her role as Spectro’s main DPS, what will be the role of her advisor and mentor?

To answer that question and facilitate you wait for her debut, here’s everything you need to know about Changla, including her role, release date, and a full description of her kit.

According to her leaked kit currently available on Hakushi, Changli will be a sword wielder and main DPS in the Fusion field, focused on dealing massive DMG damage with the Resonance skill. While on the battlefield, she will also be able to activate several damage-oriented buffs.

If her kit isn’t changed, she’ll also be a great fit for teams with double DPS Fusion or those with sub-DPS Liberation. Reason? Her ability to offer 20% Fusion buff and 25% Resonance Release DMG through her Outro skill.

Changli’s Whirlwind Waves: Resonance Skills, Forte Circuit, and Innate Skills Explained

According to her leaked kit, Changli’s Resonance Skill (Triple-Sided Flames) allows her to perform a series of slashes and an enhanced submerged attack. After doing this, he will enter the state of True Seeing. Three-Sided Flames can be performed a maximum of two times in a sequence.

Changli will also be able to enter True Sight after performing a basic attack of 4, both on the ground and in the air (yes, she can combo in the air). The state will last 12 seconds and apply the following effects to her:

  • Performing any grounded basic attack will trigger True Sight: Conquest. The damage dealt by this move is considered Skill Resonance DMG. After completing two Conquest moves, True Sight will end.
  • Performing a basic attack in the air will trigger True Sight: Charge. The damage dealt by the move will be considered Resonance Skill DMG, and performing it will force True Sight to end.

On the other hand, her Flame Oath Forte Circuit allows Changla to perform an enhanced version of her Heavy Attack – called Burning Sacrifice – by performing it while carrying four charges of Fire. The damage dealt by this move will be considered Skill Resonance DMG. You will be able to obtain Enflamement charges by completing True Sight: Conquest, True Sight: Charge and her Resonance Liberation. All of her innate abilities also revolve around Enflamement. You can check their descriptions below, based on the values ​​currently presented in Hakushi:

Innate abilityS Effects
Secret strategist True Sight: Conquest and Charge Fusion DMG will be increased by 5% for each stack of Fire you have.
Sweeping power Changli will receive a 20% Fusion DMG bonus after performing both Burning Sacrifice and Resonance Release. This will allow her to ignore 15% of her targets’ defense.

What about its resonance release?

As leaked on Hakushi, Changli’s Resonance Trigger (Radiance of Fealty) will allow her to perform a immense area fusion attack. This move will also grant her 4 stacks of Fire and allow her to enter the Fire Feather state. Performing Flaming Sacrifice in this state will grant her a 25% attack bonus.
