Atlas Bear Description
The embodiment of nature's ferocity. It originates from the far southwest, where legend says that if you paint a baby's face with the Atlas Bear's pattern on the first day it hears thunder, the Atlas Bear will protect the child for the rest of its life. Those who the Atlas Bear protects grow up to be strong and hardy, and are said to be able to survive danger that would rob most of their lives.
How to unlock Atlas Bear
- Complete The Warrior Side Mission (Dawn)
How to use Atlas Bear
- Damage Bonus (Low Ki) adds 15.0% melee damage at 50% ki, and 25.0% at zero Ki.
- Guardian Spirit skill is a strong slam from Atlas Bear, causing a shockwave. Both the strike and the shockwave deal moderate amounts of Physical and Lightning damage, high ki damage, and a human enemy struck by either hit will tumble, whereas a yokai will be staggered.
- This guardian spirit is designed only for melee damage. At the detriment of lowest attunement limit and generally weak/ easy to find passives, it has the Highest melee damage potential out of all the guardian spirits, without requiring any sort of previous condition to be met. That said, on top of low versatility with the low attunement cost, none of it's passives are relevant during Yokai Shift.
