Onmyoji Arena New Shikigami

“Wanna see who I really am?”

As an unfathomable big spirit, Tamamonomae’s abilities can attack target by surprise.

Ability 1: Soul Burst will split into 4 directions after hitting a target to attack the nearby enemies.

Ability 2: Fox Fire has a delayed control effect that when coupled with Ability 1: Soul Burst or the Ultimate Ability: Falling Might can deal great damage to controlled enemies.

Ability 3: Demon Wrath can be used to protect yourself.

Ultimate Ability: Falling Might can accurately hit targets in a wide range. There is no range warning for this ability, therefore, enemies will never know which area will be struck by this ability.

Natural Passive: Sessho-seki

Passive effect: Tamamonomae will transform into Sessho-seki for a certain period after being slain and deal magic damage and inflict a Slow effect to surrounding enemies.

Ability 1: Soul Burst

Tamamonomae casts Soul Burst towards the specified direction to deal magic damage to enemies on the way. After hitting the first enemy shikigami or reaching its max distance, it will split up all to the surrounding area and deal magic damage to enemies on the way again.

Ability 2: Fox Fire

Tamamonomae releases Fox Fire in the specified direction to deal magic damage to the first hit target and inflict a Slow effect that gradually strengthens. All damage dealt to that target will be increased. After a certain period of time, the Slow effect will be changed to Fear.

Ability 3: Demon Wrath

Tamamonomae bursts demon force to the surrounding area which knocks back enemies within range and deals magic damage.

Ultimate Ability: Falling Might

Tamamonomae will select a wide range around herself as the designated area and summon Falling Might after a time period to deal magic damage to all enemy shikigami within the range. After selecting the area, all enemy shikigami around Tamamonomae will receive a warning.

Tamamonomae will first be available during this week’s Shikigami Brawl. Feel the pressure from this overwhelming nine-tailed spirit!
