Hero Feature: A powerful fighter who can transform into a Black Dragon and sweep across the battlefield.
Skill 1: [Dragon Tail] – Yu Zhong infuses his power into his cloak and turns it into a weapon, which starts to attack nearby enemies after a short delay. The sharpened edge deals more damage.
Skill 2: [Soul Grip] – Yu Zhong unleashes the Dragon Soul, dealing damage to all enemies in front and slowing them. Upon a target hit, Yu Zhong’s next Basic Attack will be enhanced, dealing increased damage and applying extra Sha Residue. The increased damage scales with the number of targets hit, capped at 5 targets hit.
Skill 3: [Furious Dive] – Yu Zhong leaps towards the designated area with his full strength, dealing Physical Damage. He is able to dash one more time in the movement direction. After a short delay, enemies within the area of effect will be knocked airborne take additional Physical Damage.
Ultimate: [Black Dragon Form] – Yu Zhong transforms into the Black Dragon form and starts charging. He gains Control Immunity, ignores obstacles, and increases Max HP, dealing Physical Damage to enemy heroes on the path and knocking them back. Upon exiting the Black Dragon form, Yu Zhong deals the same amount of damage to enemies nearby, and enters Dragonoid form with the help of the remaining influence of the Black Dragon. The Dragonoid form improves the range of all his skills.
Passive: [Cursing Touch] – Yu Zhong applies Sha Residue to the target every time he deals damage to enemy heroes, and gathers Sha Essence in the meantime. Sha Residue erupts upon reaching full stacks, consuming 1 stack every several seconds. Each stack consumption deals part of the target’s HP lost as Physical Damage, restores part of his HP lost and gathers Sha Essence for Yu Zhong. When Sha Essence is fully charged, Yu Zhong gains Movement Speed and Spell Vamp.
