Kwang is a durable fighter that excels at initiating fights. A master swordsman, Kwang can utilize his Legendary Blade to change how and where he uses his abilities. When playing Kwang, utilize your legendary blade to approach engagements on your own terms. Use "Judgement of the Heavens" to isolate and lock targets in place, this is especially useful when combo'd with allied AoE abilties and ultimates. If you need to get back into the fight use "Fury of the Heavens" to teleport back to your sword and catch enemies off guard.
