January 22th 2021 Update Patch Notes

The Onmyoji Arena January 22th 2021 Update sees new shikigami Kainin make her official debut on the Heian-kyo battlefield.

Free Shikigami Lineup Adjustments

We will change the lineup of the limited-time free shikigami at 5:00 AM on 1/25. The new free shikigami will be Komatsu, Umibozu, Hououga, Shishio, Ootengu, Aobozu, Enma, and Hone Onna.

Onmyoji who own the God of Fortune Month Pact will have the additional free shikigami, Dai Shimei and Hana.

Of these shikigami, Enma and Hone Onna have a difficulty of Hard. Onmyoji who have been in Heian-kyo for less than 7 days can’t use them in battle for free.

New Shikigami Kainin

“The ninja of the seas, Kainin, reporting!”

Kainin’s image is that of an agile ninja, and we have selected Ninja as her positioning. Her Passive can grant her a large amount of Haste to showcase her agility. We hope that players will be able to use this Haste to repeatedly adjust her position and initiate attacks from mid-range, and also to use the end of her displacement to deal high damage to enemies.

Trait: Solo Ninja Scroll

Passive trigger: When there are no monsters or enemy shikigami within a certain range of Kainin, she gains Solo Power, which increases the damage dealt by her next ability to monsters and enemy shikigami. She will also gain a Movement Speed Bonus for a certain period of time.

Ability 1: Flying Leaves

Kainin throws three shurikens in the designated direction. Each shuriken deals physical damage to the enemy hit and inflicts a Slow effect that can be stacked.

Ability 2: Shadow Strike

Kainin charges in the designated direction, dealing physical damage to enemies along the way. If an enemy is hit at the end of her path, she deals a high amount of physical damage to them, and Kainin recovers HP. She will also be able to charge a second time within 4 seconds.

The second charge will deal physical damage to enemies along the way. If an enemy is hit at the end of her path, she deals an even higher amount of physical damage to them, and Kainin recovers HP.

Ability 3: Back Stab

Kainin throws a throwing star in the designated direction, marking the first enemy it hits and dealing physical damage to them. Kainin can use this ability again within 4 seconds to teleport to behind the marked target and deal physical damage to them.

Ultimate Ability: Instant Needle

Kainin quickly brandishes her blade, dealing physical damage to surrounding enemies and knocking them back. At the same time, she gains a shield for a certain amount of time.

This week sees Kainin make her official debut on the Heian-kyo battlefield. Kainin’s dyed skin, Tempered, is also available to purchase in the Skin Shop.

The Imposing Undercurrent Selection Pack will also be available in the General Store. The selection pack includes the new shikigami Kainin, Evolved Form Amulet x1, Taichi Mudra x1, and Witchery Bell x8. You can select which to purchase! The Imposing Undercurrent Selection Pack will be available till 11:59 PM on 2/4. Don’t miss out on this chance to get Kainin!

Yamakaze Adjustments

Yamakaze is still overly flexible in the current version, and is difficult to counter in most situations. We have adjusted his survivability brought about by his Trait: Haze and Ability 1: Violent so that enemy shikigami will have a certain amount of control space when facing off against Yamakaze.

Trait: Haze

Passive effect: When Yamakaze leaves his current target’s vision, he gains a 60% damage reduction effect for 0.5 seconds. His next basic attack will deal additional physical damage and inflict a Slow effect.

Ability 1: Violent

On use, immediately reduces Laceration by 35, recovers HP, and enters Invisibility state for 1.25 seconds.

Ability 3: Slash

The increase of Laceration when casting the ability has been adjusted to 35.

Match Adjustments

Adjusted the avatar enemy selection feature

Feature Adjustment

After tapping on the displayed enemy shikigami avatar, you will be locked on to the target until you leave or you tap again to cancel the lock on. Basic attacks and abilities will prioritize the target as the default enemy selection when you are locked on.

Distance Adjustment

Expanded the distance in which the enemy shikigami avatar can be displayed. Now, the avatar of enemy shikigami mid to long range distance away within vision range can also be displayed.

Adjusted the single-target ability enemy selection feature

After the adjustment, the casting indicator of single-target abilities will be able to select targets in a slightly larger area than casting range. When a target outside the range is selected, the shikigami will automatically move toward the target and cast the ability once within range.

Added settings option for basic attack enemy selection mode

Added 3 types of settings for basic attack enemy selection mode: Prioritize Basic Attack, Prioritize Movement, and Smart Determination.

Prioritize Basic Attack: This mode is the mode currently used by players.

Prioritize Movement: In this mode, if the selected enemy is outside of the range of basic attacks, attack commands will not affect the movement of the character.

Smart Determination: In this mode, the system will determine the priority of basic attacks or movement.
