In these stances, Nilou’s third dance step will end Pirouette, and has the following effects:

  • Sword Dance: unleashes a Luminous Illusion that deals Hydro DMG to opponents it touches and grants Nilou the Lunar Prayer effect. This effect converts Nilou’s Normal Attacks into Sword Dance techniques, and her final hit will unleash a Luminous Illusion.
  • Whirling Steps: Nilou unleashes a Whirling Water Wheel that deals AoE Hydro DMG and creates a Tranquility Aura that follows your active character around and applies Wet to opponents within its AoE.

Nilou Passive Talents

Court of Dancing Petals

Learned at 1st Ascension

When all characters in the party are either Dendro  or Hydro, and there is at least one Dendro character and one Hydro character, the third dance step of Nilou’s Dance of Haftkarsvar will grant all nearby characters the Golden Chalice’s Bounty for 30s upon its completion.
