Kiriko’s most powerful ability is Kitsune Rush. It summons a spectral fox, holding a ninja scroll in its mouth, to illuminate the path of the ghost torii gate.

All teammates who pass through that gate will be awarded buff great speed, including faster movement, weapon reload speed, and cooldown.


Blizzard got rid of the system loot box and introduce battle pass. Kiriko will be joining new tank heroes Junker Queen and Sojourn upon release.
