New Shikigami Enmusubi Invades Heian-kyo!

“You have been bound together by fate!”

Enmusubi is a divine young woman who helps people to make connections. She has a positive and motivated personality with a little bit of arrogance. In Heian-kyo, Enmusubi is positioned as a functional and buff Support type that can be used to achieve different functional effects through “bonding” with different units. At the same time, Enmusubi’s Trait allow her to constantly strengthen herself even after being sealed by picking up Fate Cards and to providing vision help to her teammates.

Trait: Fate Realized

Passive effect: When there are enemy minions and monsters near Enmusubi, Fate Cards will appear in the surrounding area. She can pick up one up to gain Ability Power, Armor, and Magic Resist permanently, as well as a temporary Haste effect.

When Enmusubi is sealed, she will become a black cat, during which she cannot be targeted, but can move and pick up Fate Cards. She will return to normal after resurrecting.

Ability 1: Flower Moon

Enmusubi releases the power of fate, dealing magic damage to surrounding enemies and giving shields that can block damage to allies in range, while at the same time adding a Fate Seal to all surrounding shikigami.

Fate Seal: Using this ability again triggers a mark effect, which deals magic damage to enemy shikigami and slows them, while also reducing their damage dealt. This gives ally shikigami a shield that can block damage, grants a Haste effect, and also increases Attack Speed.

Ability 2: Perfect Pair

Enmusubi throws a fate amulet at an enemy shikigami, dealing magic damage to the target and creating a bond with them, which will disappear once they go out of range.

While this bond exists, use this ability again to throw a fate amulet in the designated direction, dealing magic damage to the first enemy hit. Additionally, the 2 targets hit by fate amulets will be brought close to each other. If they hit each other, they will both be stunned. If 2 fate amulets hit the same target, they will also be stunned.

Ability 3: Soul Mate

Enmusubi bestows a blessing upon a designated teammate, during which it boosts the target’s Armor and Magic Resist. It also grants them immunity to control effects once, ending the blessing status early when triggered. At the end of the blessing’s duration, it will restore HP to the target and release Flower Moon on the target’s surroundings.

Ultimate Ability: Blessed Union

Enmusubi creates a bond with an ally shikigami. For the duration of the bond, other allies can use Fateful Bond, which pulls them to the bonded shikigami by a string of fate after a short delay, becoming slowed and unable to attack for a short period of time. If this ability is used again, the bond will be cut.

This week sees Enmusubi make her official debut on the Heian-kyo battlefield.

The Blessed Union Selection Pack will also be available in the General Store. The selection pack includes the new shikigami Enmusubi, Evolved Form Amulet x1, Taichi Mudra x1, and Weeping Sakura x8. You can select which to purchase! The Blessed Union Selection Pack will be available till 11:59 PM on 5/13. Don’t miss out on this chance to get Enmusubi!

Balance Adjustments

Hannya

Hannya is currently at a disadvantage against most Top Solo shikigami. We have lowered the MP cost of his Ability 3 in the early game and changed the rules for his Ability 2 to trigger marks in order to strengthen its utility while laning.

Ability 2: Ghoul Mask

Both firing and returning hits can trigger Ability 1’s mark.

Ability 3: Blood Grenade

Adjusted MP cost from 55 to 40/43/46/49/52.

Tanuki

Tanuki is now on the low side in terms of overall strength. We have adjusted the cooldown of his trait and Ability 2’s damage to enhance his combat and chase abilities.

Trait: Wine Power

Adjusted cooldown reduction per 6 levels from 2 seconds to 3 seconds.

Ability 2: Fiery Moonshine

Adjusted Max HP Bonus from 4/5/6/7/8% to 6/7/8/9/10%.

Adjusted Max HP Bonus by enhanced damage over time from 1% to 1.2/1.4/1.6/1.8/2%.

Adjusted cooldown from 8/7.5/7/6.5/6 seconds to 7/6.5/6/5.5/5 seconds.

Hako Shoujo

We have readjusted the bonus to Hako Shoujo’s Movement Speed and HP Regen ratio, and added an extra HP bonus to her Ability 1 to address her overall weak performance in the late game.

Ability 1: Glittering Light

Dealing damage with the ability now increases Max HP by 6%.

Ability 3: Retrace

Adjusted the Movement Speed boost from 30% to 30/32.5/35/37.5/40%.

Adjusted HP Regen ratio from 25/30/35/40/45% to 30/35/40/45/50%.

Yuki Onna

As the previous adjustment to Yuki Onna had a slightly smaller impact on her strength than expected, we have further adjusted Yuki Onna’s MP cost and Ability Power bonus.

Ability 1: Dusk Snows

Adjusted MP cost from 40/50/60/70/80 to 40/45/50/55/60.

Adjusted the 2nd stage Ability Power bonus from 35% to 45%.

Ability 2: Marshmallow

Adjusted MP cost from 50/60/70/80/90 to 50/55/60/65/70.

Adjusted maximum damage Ability Power bonus from 80% to 85%.

Tesso

We have suitably lowered the initial attack speed of Tesso’s ultimate ability to control its burst damage in the early game.

Ultimate Ability: Insurance Policy

Adjusted Attack Speed from 3 – 4 to 2.5 – 4 (increases with the number of coins).

Enma

Enma’s overall lane pressure is currently stronger in the early game, and the Silence inflicted by Ability 2 causes too much of a negative experience for the enemy. We have suitably reduced Enma’s Base Damage and Silence Duration.

Ability 2: Demon Realm

Adjusted Silence Duration from 0.7 seconds to 0.5 seconds.

Ultimate Ability: Crushed Grievances

Adjusted base damage from 15/19/23/27 to 10/14/18/22.

Suzuka Gozen

We have slight adjusted Suzuka Gozen’s ultimate ability and passive damage to control her burst damage in the mid game.

Trait: Sharp Weapon

Adjusted base damage from 5 to 10.

Adjusted attack damage bonus from 115% to 110%.

Ultimate Ability: Feathered Surf

Adjusted base damage from 240/345/450 to 200/325/450.

Yokinshi

We hope that Yokinshi can be a flexible mage shikigami, but his window of opportunity is obviously too short. We will adjust the cooldown of his Ability 3 and ultimate ability.

Ability 3: Lingering Sound

Adjusted cooldown from 14/13/12/11/10 seconds to 14/13.5/13/12.5/12 seconds.

Ultimate Ability: Phantom Zither

Adjusted base damage from 90/195/300 to 90/170/250.

Adjusted cooldown from 25/22.5/20 seconds to 30 seconds.

Adjusted imp damage factor to monsters from 125% to 140%.

Ichigo Kurosaki

We hope to increase the overall strength of Ichigo Kurosaki by reducing the cooldown of his Ability 1 in the Bankai state.

Bankai Ability 1: Kokuryu Hageki

Reduced cooldown from 6/5.8/5.5/5.2/5 seconds to 6/5.5/5/4.5/4 seconds.

Trait: Entanglement

Increased damage from detonating stacks from 20 (+12*current level) (+40% Ability Power) (+12% (increases 1% for every 125 Ability Power) target HP lost) to 30 (+15*current level) (+50% Ability Power) (+15% (increases 1% for every 100 Ability Power) target HP lost).

The increase of Laceration when casting this ability has been reduced to 10.
