Naraka: Bladepoint update: New crossover hero Ziping Yin added


In the most recent update, a new crossover hero named Ziping Yin was added to Naraka: Bladepoint.

Ziping Yin came from the mobile game A Chinese Ghost Story, for those who don’t know. In any case, her buffs and abilities make her an invaluable member of the team.

Her first ability is Aromatherapy, and when she uses it, she releases Ligneous Energy to form Spiritual Twigs. Allies who come close to these twigs will instantly have their HP and armor restored. Additionally, damage reduction is increased by 20% over the next five seconds.

Aromatherapie: Umarmen is a slightly different version of Aromatherapy. Instead of restoring HP and armor, summoning Spiritual Twigs causes allies to absorb Spiritual Energy and gain inspiration for 12 seconds.

Her second ability, Saving Grace, allows her to constantly consume Rage to restore all of her allies’ HP and armor. This improves overall restoration capability by 30%. When triggered, Ziping Yin gains Sedate Soul, which consumes all of her ultimate energy.

Ziping Yin’s Sedate Soul ability allows her to avoid one fatal strike while also knocking nearby enemies airborne. Not only that, but it instantly restores 300 HP and increases damage reduction by 20% within five seconds. This will allow her to survive situations where her enemies are banding together against her.

The latest update still has plenty to offer and you can read some of them below:

New Map: Holoroth
  • 5 Regions: Plumed Castle, Mehtaab, City of Tang, Empyreal Village, and Yushan Ruins.
  • (Yushan Ruins is unavailable now: In northwestern Holoroth sits the inaccessible Snowy Peaks that have been ice-bound for years. But something abnormal is plotting inside Snowy Peaks these years, evident in the abrupt cracks on the ice. Perhaps the ice will melt soon.)
Brand New Mechanisms
  • Thorny Roller: Maintains cyclic motion, knocks players airborne once touched, and deals a huge amount of damage.
  • Trap Clip: Interact with it to set a trap. Deals a small amount of damage to enemies stepping on it and bans Grappling Hook and Tracking for a certain time.
  • Spikes: Knocks players airborne once entering the trap and deals damage. There is a cooldown.
  • Cactus: Activated by player attacks, deals ranged damage to nearby players and knocks players hit to a far distance.
  • Falcon Statues: Keep updating four statues in the Salvation Podium until they face their respective correct direction, in which case mysterious treasures will appear.
  • Campfire: Interact with it to disperse the Chill brought by the Snowstorm.
  • Rising Wind: Strengthens the jumping ability of players within range.
  • Ghostly Hand: Silences the objectives attacked by it for a while.

The full patch notes can be found on Steam.

Naraka: Bladepoint is available on the Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
