April 30th 2020 Update Patch Notes

The Onmyoji Arena April 30th 2020 Update sees new shikigami Zashiki will first be available during this week’s Shikigami Brawl.

FREE SHIKIGAMI LINEUP ADJUSTMENTS

Onmyoji Arena will change the lineup of the limited-time free shikigami at 5:00 AM on 5/4. The new free shikigami will be Youko, Yamausagi, Hououga, Kusa, Hakuzosu, Hangan, Dodomeki, and Ittan-momen.

Of these shikigami, Dodomeki and Ittan-momen have a difficulty of Extreme. Onmyoji who have been in Heian-kyo for less than 7 days can’t use them in battle for free.

NEW SHIKIGAMI ZASHIKI

Zashiki is a Tank shikigami. Zashiki consumes a certain amount of HP when using abilities, and will gain orbs for her passive when she takes damage or actively consumes HP. The number of orbs directly affects her Ability 1’s damage bonus and Ability 3’s shield points. Zashiki needs to effectively manage her own HP and the timing of shield usage and stay near the DPS at full stack of orbs to harass the enemy, and finally use the two-stage damage of the ultimate to damage and finish off the enemy.

Trait: Soul Fire

Passive effect: Zashiki gains 1 orb for every certain amount of Max HP lost. She can hold a maximum of 6 at a time. After that, each orb gained will restore her HP. If she doesn’t gain any new orbs within a certain period of time, she will automatically consume all orbs to restore HP.

Ability 1: Indoor Cleansing

Zashiki consumes a certain percentage of her current HP, dealing magic damage to nearby enemies after a short delay. Bonus magic damage is dealt for every orb she has. When she has 6 orbs, this will additionally slow the enemies.
Zashiki will gain 1 more orb when this ability hits enemy shikigami.

Ability 2: Fortune Chain

Zashiki consumes a certain percentage of her current HP to launch an orb chain in the designated direction, linking her and the first enemy it hits. When linked, her Movement Speed is increased, and she slows the target and deals magic damage. The orb chain breaks when it exceeds a certain distance.

Zashiki will gain more orbs when this ability hits enemy shikigami. The longer the link duration, the more orbs she will get.

Ability 3: Serendipity

Zashiki consumes all her current orbs and gains a shield that blocks damage. Each orb increases the shield by additional points. At the end of the duration, a percentage of the remaining shield points will be converted to HP.

Ultimate Ability: Trade-Off

Active effect: Zashiki consumes a certain percentage of her current HP, and immediately gains 1 orb and a Haste effect. She also enters the Fortune Guard state, during which she gains a damage bonus and Slow immunity, and gains 1 orb every certain period of time.

Using this ability again will deal magic damage to enemies in a designated area according to their lost HP after a short delay.

Passive trigger: The lower Zashiki’s current HP, the more orbs are regenerated.

Zashiki will first be available during this week’s Shikigami Brawl.

BATTLEFIELD ADJUSTMENTS

1. Adjustments to the Subdue spell mechanic

Currently, if the shikigami carrying the Subdue spell is the shikigami with the highest income in the team in the early game, the EXP and Coins gained from laning will be decreased, but this mechanic can be technically avoided by distributing income within the team. This has made the boost from the Subdue spell higher than the other spells after the adjustments for the new season. We will update the mechanic of the Subdue spell, to lower the boost of the Subdue spell for other shikigami without affecting normal Ninja shikigami.

Before the 4 minutes and 30 seconds mark, if the shikigami carrying the Subdue spell gains more than 40% EXP/Coins from minion waves compared to the EXP/Coins gained from monsters, the EXP/Coins that the shikigami gains from minion waves in the lane will be decreased. This decrease will be 70% and 60% respectively.

2. Adjustments to the Minion Wave time

In matchmaking Ranked Matches for Diamond tier and below, the minion wave spawn time will be delayed by 2 seconds.

DARUMA BLESSING

Aoandon’s royal skin, Phantom Lights, has undergone upgrades to effects and close-up, and will make a reappearance as Phantom Orbs.

Players who own the old Phantom Lights skin will directly obtain the new Phantom Orbs, which can be used freely in battles.

OPTIMIZATIONS AND ADJUSTMENTS

Fixed a bug in which the Aoandon skins, Butterfly Dance, Night Lights, and Phantom Lights, mistakenly used the special effects of her original skin when her ultimate ability hit.
