During the animation, the summoner resists all damage and status attacks, while the cat also receive a damage/status resist buff for 2sec.

The skill only appears for a brief moment when the mentioned status is inflicted on the Summoner, and can be used by timely pressing or holding Key Alphabet F 128.png.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Retreat is useful for both PvE and PvP bybreaking CC state, creating a distance between the Summoner and the opponent to avoid being comboed.
  • In high-tier pvp, the opponent can intentionally force a Summoner to use Retreat, then do tech-chase to score another CC, making Summoner have his Retreat skill in cooldown and becoming sitting duck. Still, Summoner can also do the same.
  • The skill is somewhat hard to use if the player is slow to react in time, has high ping, or may be accidentally triggered due to the player's habit to use Key Alphabet F 128.png to use other skills.
