Nest Keeper Xiao Lin is one of two available Rearms, which changes her class into a Tower. Out of the two, while Kestrel is more of a PVE-oriented character, Nest Keeper focuses more on the PVP side of things. Like all other versions, she is able to output massive DPS, due to the rearm turning her into a two-in-one character with an invulnerable air drone that will follow up all of her attacks.

Being a Tower, she promotes a camping playstyle in PVP which alone already gives her a massive advantage. Still, after being one of the most hated characters in PVP for almost a year, and several attempts to reduce her capabilities (from releasing tower counters, to reducing safe zone), they directly nerfed her.

From the changes, her drone basic attack DPS was reduced by 55%, and her range was reduced by 100. This severely reduced her damage output as most of her DPS was from the drone. Also, her defensive capabilities were reworked to open her up for more counterplay. Her barrier was increased from 20% to 55% but her HP was reduced by 35%. These changes allow her A. Na Yubin to delete half of her HP from reflux and allow assassins to one-shot her after releasing her barrier.

While she is still usable, she needs much more time to make up for her high cost. If left alone, she is still able to output a lot of damage to tanks, and with the ultimate, she is able to protect her own base by inflicting massive knockback with a high valid hit.

Pros & Cons

- great damage due to ignoring most resistance from gear.


- high cost.
