This black-haired beauty is the guardian of Ruby and is the Archon of Mirroria, though her responsibility can be overwhelming (you can sometimes find her asleep at her desk!) she is committed to her role and duties. So, if you’re looking for an empowered female, look no further as this guide explains all her abilities, weapons, and best build in Tower of Fantasy.

How to Unlock Lin in Tower of Fantasy

As Lin is the latest upcoming SSR Simulacrum to grace us with her presence, you might be wondering how to unlock this majestic beauty. Like most gacha games, in order to unlock Lin you will have to spin for her weapon the Shadow Weaver.

Lin Shadow Weaver Weapon Abilities

Lin’s choice of weapon in Tower of Fantasy is a Shadow Weaver, it’s a fan-like weapon that uses the Aberration Element. She is the first Simulacra to use this Elemental effect.

Aberration Weapon Effects

When the weapon is fully charged, the next attack will leave a mark on the enemy that explodes after 5 seconds. The explosion deals 25% of the damage dealt during the marked period, up to 560% of ATK. Though only one mark can exist at a time.

You can activate weapon mastery when using other weapons, Nightblooms will randomly appear around the target and explode within 1-3 seconds, dealing 60% AOE damage.
