Tai Chi (Passive Skill)

On top of being a Panda Warrior, Akai is also a Tai Chi Master. Due to this specialization in the field of martial arts, Akai is capable of generating a shield over his maximum HP that can block 8% of the damage he takes. The shield generates every time Akai casts a spell. It lasts for 2 seconds and can only be triggered every 2.5 seconds.

Tai Chi is the main reason why Akai is so bulky and tanky. With a shield that has defensive powers based on how high his maximum HP is, Akai sure has an edge in surviving even the most intense attacks from the enemies.

In order to take full advantage of Tai Chi, use Thousand Pounder and Blender as much as you can. The more you use them, the higher the chance the shield brought upon by Tai Chi will trigger. Once the shield is up, you’re definitely going to be a very tough panda to take down!

Take note that HP-increasing items will significantly maximize the damage blocked by the Tai Chi shield. Thus, purchasing HP-increasing items is certainly a wise move for Akai.

Thousand Pounder (1st Skill)

With his outrageous, heavy weight, Akai uses his body to jump onto a location and smashes everything in the area. This skill deals 300 [+50% Total Physical ATK] physical damage to the enemies surrounding the targeted area and stuns them for 2 seconds.

  • Skill Level 1 – 300 Base Damage, 11 Seconds Cooldown, 70 Mana Consumption
  • Skill Level 2 – 350 Base Damage, 10 Seconds Cooldown, 70 Mana Consumption
  • Skill Level 3 – 400 Base Damage, 9 Seconds Cooldown, 70 Mana Consumption
  • Skill Level 4 – 450 Base Damage, 8 Seconds Cooldown, 70 Mana Consumption
  • Skill Level 5 – 500 Base Damage, 7 Seconds Cooldown, 70 Mana Consumption
  • Skill Level 6 – 550 Base Damage, 7 Seconds Cooldown, 70 Mana Consumption

Thousand Pounder is the skill that you should max out first, no questions asked! Not only is it highly damaging, it also stuns the enemies. Moreover, you can use it to either close the gap between you and the enemies or use it as an escape tool for when you are in grave danger.

A good strategy for this skill is to use it right after you mark the enemy with Blender. Jump towards the enemy with Thousand Pounder and beat the living daylight out of them! If you have your teammates rallying behind you, then the stun effect of this skill will be extremely beneficial for both you and them as you all dish out some massive damage.

Blender (2nd Skill)

Blender enables Akai to fire a frog-shaped projectiles towards the enemies. Once the projectile collides with the enemies or reaches its maximum range, it explodes and deals 350 [+120% Total Physical ATK] physical damage to the enemies hit by the explosion. Additionally, the enemies that are hit by this skill are marked for 5 seconds, energizing Akai’s basic attacks against them with 5% of his maximum HP as bonus damage.

  • Skill Level 1 – 350 Base Damage, 8 Seconds Cooldown, 70 Mana Consumption
  • Skill Level 2 – 380 Base Damage, 8 Seconds Cooldown, 80 Mana Consumption
  • Skill Level 3 – 410 Base Damage, 7 Seconds Cooldown, 90 Mana Consumption
  • Skill Level 4 – 440 Base Damage, 7 Seconds Cooldown, 100 Mana Consumption
  • Skill Level 5 – 470 Base Damage, 6 Seconds Cooldown, 110 Mana Consumption
  • Skill Level 6 – 500 Base Damage, 6 Seconds Cooldown, 120 Mana Consumption

Blender is great poke skill, especially in the early game. It not only damages the enemies with some decent damage, it also marks them for 5 seconds. While marked, the enemies receive more damage from your basic attacks. That’s 5% of your HP as bonus damage to your basic attacks! If that is not incredible, then I don’t know what is.

I suggest that you add a skill point to Blender as soon as the game starts. Basically, it is the first skill that you should use early game. Take note: “Only add one skill point!” Succeeding levels have negligible bonus effects, so just add skill points to Thousand Pounder after you add one skill point to this one.

You should use Blender as much as you can. The damage it brings really stings, especially if combined with your basic attacks thereafter. Also, it triggers your Tai Chi skill, so all the more reason to use it more often.

It is also good to remember that the more HP you have, the more damage you can deal with your basic attacks after you mark your enemies.

Hurricane Dance (Ultimate Skill)

Just like a hurricane, Akai wildly spins and starts hitting the enemies. In this state, every time Akai hits an enemy, they are knocked back and dealt 180 [+100% Total Physical ATK] magical damage, which decays after each successive hit. Furthermore, once this skill activates, all CC effects on Akai are instantly removed and he becomes immune to them during the whole duration of the skill. His movement speed also increases by 30 points in this state.

  • Skill Level 1 – 180 Base Damage Per Hit, 40 Seconds Cooldown, 120 Mana Consumption
  • Skill Level 2 – 360 Base Damage Per Hit, 36 Seconds Cooldown, 120 Mana Consumption
  • Skill Level 3 – 540 Base Damage Per Hit, 32 Seconds Cooldown, 120 Mana Consumption

Hurricane Dance is a really great support skill! While it is not highly damaging, it has a nifty knock-back effect and CC immunity buff. During the duration of this skill, Akai is rendered immune to any debuff, which makes him unstoppable! The movement speed bonus also allows him to hit enemies much more easily.

One of the best ways to use this skill is to perform it while the enemies are near your turrets and allies. With the knock-back effect of this skill, you can push them towards your turrets and allies and let them meet their demise. It takes a bit of skill, but it is not extremely hard to pull off. Also, you can use Hurricane Dance to escape from the enemies. If you find yourself in a tight position, don’t hesitate and whirl yourself away from danger with this skill.

As a last note, if you use Thousand Pounder before this skill, you will have better control in choosing the direction where you can knock back your opponents because of the stun effect Thousand Pounder has.
