Ying is one of the Champions in Paladins.

Lore[edit | edit source]

A talented young spellcaster, Ying is a master of illusions and trickery, able to befuddle her opponents with bewildering misdirection. That same magic can also soothe the minds of her allies to ease their suffering and mend their wounds. She made good use of those skills to escape imprisonment by a bandit king and during her days as an adventurer afterward.

When the Magistrate began its campaign of conquest, subjugating the Realm in an attempt to restrict the use of magic by the common folk, she felt it was her responsibility to join the fight against the tyranny.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Ying is a support champion able to heal allies from a distance through her Illusions. Her Illusory Mirror fires very fast beams of energy and also allows her to Shatter her deployed illusions, causing them to seek enemies and explode to deal damage around them. Her Dimensional Link permits her to switch places with her illusions, allowing her to quickly reposition herself. Ying's Ultimate ability, Illusory Rift, applies a strong healing buff to all of her allies, that also allows her movement skill to also teleport to an ally's current positions.

Skills[edit | edit source]
