Dislyte Esper Guides: Tang Yun

Tang Yun Dislyte Esper Guide

Originating from the Six-Eared Macaque, a spiritual primate from Journey to the West, a classical Chinese novel, Tang Yun is a Fighter Esper with a focus on attacking as many times as possible in one turn, and stunning enemies to grant even more opportunities for attacks. Being the best DPS 3* Esper, in my opinion, he’s great to invest in at the very beginning of the game.

Is Tang Yun a Good Esper in Dislyte?

As Tang Yun is only a 3* Esper, he’s not a particularly good unit in the late game, especially compared to a lot of the 4* and 5* Espers. Despite this, he definitely has his strengths, being able to attack tons of times while also having a pretty high chance to stop enemies in their tracks.

When you’re just starting out, your best teams will be built from 3 DPS Espers and 2 Support/Controller Espers, so Tang Yun is an easy one to build alongside Li Ling and Mona if you want to go for this structure. Being a 3*, he’s easy to get more Resonance for, and he’s not too resource intensive in order to make him useful.

Tang Yun Abilities

In battle, an Esper will utilize their abilities in order to deal damage to the enemy and support their team. All Dislyte Esper Abilities start at Level 1 and can be increased further depending on the ability. Each additional level will improve the ability in a certain way. For more details on improving an Esper’s abilities, check out our Dislyte Esper Guide.

Tang Yun Ascension

All Espers in Dislyte can be further ascended to improve their stats starting from level 1. They can then be ascended again at levels 10/20/30/40/50 up to a total of 6 Ascensions. For more details on Ascending your Espers, check out our Dislyte Esper Guide.

Full details on the boost gained by Tang Yun at each level of Esper Ascension can be seen below.

  • Phase 1: ATK +70
  • Phase 2: HP +950
  • Phase 3: Upgraded Talisman of Inward Devilry
  • Phase 4: HP +10%
  • Phase 5: ATK +15%
  • Phase 6: C. RATE +15%

Tang Yun Divine Resonance

Tang Yun’s Divine Resonance should allocate all of his energy to ATK. Using this, you should activate these Talents for this Esper:

  • [ATK] Life Snatcher: When an enemy dies, basic ATK +5%
  • [ATK] Power Suppression: When attacking a disadvantaged enemy, damage +3%
  • [ATK] Berserker Drain: If HP is below 50%, Lifesteal amount +8%
  • [ATK] Perfect Harvest: If a single ability hit’s damage is higher than 35% of the target’s max HP, deals additional True Damage equal to 5% of the target’s max HP

Tang Yun Relics

Tang Yun is best at DPS, attacking many times, and because of this, it’s best to increase the damage he does with these attacks. In terms of Relics, however, there are more sets that benefit high damage Espers than just ones that increase the base damage stat. Some instead allow counter-attacks and healing per attack, and these are important to keep in mind too.

On top of this, Tang Yun is a fairly unique Esper in that one of his abilities launches more attacks upon a Crit, and this is also important to keep in mind and potentially boost in order to get as many attacks in as possible per turn and get as many chances as possible to Stun the opponent.

Therefore, you should look to apply the following sets:

  • Hades: HP regenerated at 35% of damage dealt.
  • War Machine: +30% ATK
  • Fiery Incandescence: C.RATE +20%

Lastly, Tang Yun’s Relics’ characteristics should prioritize C. DMG, C. RATE, ATK, and SPD.
