  • Grants your luopan 25% of your current HP.
    • The HP lost is not affected by gear or job points.
    • You also subsequently cannot kill yourself using this JA.
  • The increase in Life Cycle potency from Job points is applied in the same set as equipment bonuses.
    • With Job points, Nantosuelta's Cape, and Geomancy Tunic +1, you would have a bonus of 40%.
      • For example, someone with 2000 HP and +20% Life Cycle from 20 job points will lose 500 HP and the luopan will gain 600 HP.
