As we’ve already mentioned earlier, Candace is an upcoming 4-Star Hydro character that will be released along with the 3.1 version. Here’s a detailed breakdown of the character’s abilities:

Normal Attack: Gleaming Spear – Guardian Stance

  • Normal: Performs up to four consecutive spear strikes.
  • Charged: Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to lunge forward, dealing damage to opponents along the way.
  • Plunging: Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE damage upon impact.

Elemental Skill

  • Sacred Rite: Heron’s Sanctum: Candace’s fighting style is capable of warding off an entire tide of foes.
  • Tap: Rushes forward with her shield, dealing Hydro damage.
  • Hold: Raises her shield to block incoming attacks from nearby opponents, forming a barrier that absorbs damage based on her max HP and absorbs Hydro damage 250% more effectively. This barrier lasts until the Elemental Skill is unleashed. After holding for a certain period of time, Candace will finish charging and when the skill button is released, the skill duration expires, or when the barrier is broken, she will perform a leaping strike that deals Hydro damage to opponents in front of her.

Elemental Burst

  • Sacred Rite: Wagtail’s Tide Raising her weapon high, Candace calls upon a divine blessing that deals AoE Hydro damage, based on her max HP and confers the Prayer of the Crimson Crown on all your party members.
  • Prayer of the Crimson Crown: Characters deal increased Elemental damage with their normal attacks. Whenever a character takes the field, they will unleash a rippling wave of water that deals Hydro damage to nearby opponents. There is a limited number of waves that can be triggered in the duration of this skill. Active sword, claymore, and polearm-wielding characters under this effect will obtain a Hydro Infusion.


  • To Dawn’s First Light: Decreases climbing stamina consumption for your own party members by 20%. Not stackable with passive talents that provide the same effect.
  • Featherflow Guard: If Candace is hit by an attack in the Hold duration of Sacred Rite: Heron’s Sanctum, that skill will finish charging instantly.
  • Sand Arch: Characters affected by the Prayer of the Crimson Crown caused by Sacred Rite: Wagtail’s Tide will deal 0.5% increased damage to opponents for every 1,000 points of Candace’s max HP when they deal Elemental damage with their Normal Attacks.


  • Returning Heir of the Scarlet Sands: The duration of Prayer of the Crimson Crown effect is increased by three seconds.
  • Moon-Piercing Brilliance: When Sacred Rite: Heron’s Guard hits opponents, Candace’s max HP will be increased by 20% for 15 seconds.
  • Hunter’s Supplication: Increases the level of Sacred Rite: Wagtail’s Tide by three. Maximum upgrade level is 15.
  • Sentinel Oath: Shortens the Hold cooldown of Sacred Rite: Heron’s Guard to be the same as the Tapping cooldown.
  • Golden Eye: Increases the level of Sacred Rite: Heron’s Guard by three. Maximum upgrade level is 15.
  • The Overflow: When characters (excluding Candace) affected by the Prayer of the Crimson Crown deal Elemental damage to opponents using Normal Attacks, it will unleash the wave attack from Sacred Rite: Wagtail’s Tide. This effect can trigger once every 2.3 seconds and triggering this effect will not consume the base Wave instances granted by Prayer of the Crimson Crown.
