Yang Jian Skills and Abilities

Mind Games (Passive): Enemies around Yang Jian reduce their control time by 20% for each enemy hero, up to a maximum of 60% reduction.
Cooldown: 0s Cost: 0 Tips: The more enemy heroes around Yang Jian, the less control time they experience, making Yang Jian more agile in combat.

Unleash the Hound (Skill 01): Yang Jian summons Xiao Tian Quan to charge, dealing 210/255/300/345/390/435(+45% physical attack) physical damage to the first enemy hit. If an enemy is hit, it grants vision of the target for 5 seconds, allowing for a second activation of the skill to charge towards the enemy, dealing 320/395/470/545/620/ 695(+65% physical attack) physical damage plus 16% of the target’s missing health as physical damage, capped at 800 damage against non-hero targets. If the target is defeated within the mark duration or directly by Yang Jian, the cooldown of Reverse the Universe is immediately refreshed.
Cooldown: 6s Cost: 45
Tips: This skill is a skillshot that requires prediction of the opponent’s movement. Yang Jian can instantly teleport behind the enemy after the first skill hit or wait for the enemy to use their mobility skill before using the second activation to ensure a higher kill rate. Refreshing the skill cooldown upon killing the target.

Vain Disillusionment (Skill 02) Yang Jian sweeps, dealing 250/300/350/400/450/ 500(+100% physical attack) physical damage and reducing enemies’ movement speed by 50% for 2 seconds. It also stuns targets for 0.5 seconds, or 1 second if the target’s health percentage is higher than Yang Jian’s. After hitting an enemy, Yang Jian’s basic attacks deal an additional 80/120/160/200/240/280(+35% physical attack) true damage for 5 seconds.
Cooldown: 10/9.6/9.2/8.8/8.4/8.0s Cost: 70

Sight of Origin (Ultimate): Yang Jian uses the Heavenly Eye to release 3 lasers, dealing 300/450/600(+72% physical attack) physical damage. The 3rd release fires 3 beams, with subsequent beams from the second one dealing 30% damage. Each laser hit regenerates 130/195/260(+33% physical attack) health for Yang Jian, with only 50% healing effect for multiple hits.
Cooldown: 28/22/16s Cost: 100
Tips: This skill requires Yang Jian to predict enemy movement, capable of dealing considerable AOE damage, and the more damage Yang Jian deals, the stronger the healing effect. The third part of the skill can yield high returns when enemies are clustered.

Yang Jian Best Partners

Gao Jianli: Both heroes can initiate or follow-up in team fights, having high AOE damage and the ability to harvest the battlefield, improving team fight win rates. Gao Jianli’s ultimate’s effectiveness is enhanced by Yang Jian’s Skill 2, which can slow or stun enemies, making Gao Jianli’s ultimate hit harder.
Li Bai: Initially, Li Bai can deal a wave of damage with his ultimate, then Yang Jian can use his Skill 1 for executes, complementing teammates for successful kills. Together, Yang Jian and Li Bai have strong roaming and gank capabilities, making skill combos highly effective for catching enemies and making Li Bai’s ultimate easier to unlock.

Yan Jian Counter

Sun Shangxiang can easily dodge Yang Jian’s skills with her mobility. Diaochan can kite Yang Jian effectively while avoiding his skills.

Counter Tips: Maintain safe distancing from fragile heroes to prevent close-range output; once controlled or petrified, it’s easy to get killed. In team fights, avoid clustering too closely, as Yang Jian’s ult can have high output and control effects.

Usage Tips and Team Fight Strategy

In the early game, coordinate with controlling allies to ensure skill hits. In the mid to late game, use sustained output abilities to threaten enemy backlines.

During team fights, Yang Jian should constantly flank to limit enemy positioning, seize opportunities to dive into the backline with Skill 1, and continue outputting damage. Upon securing a kill and refreshing Skill 1’s CD, he can enter a phase of harvesting kills.
