March 5th 2021 Update Patch Notes

The Onmyoji Arena March 5th 2021 Update sees new shikigami Kidomaru make his official debut on the Heian-kyo battlefield.

Free Shikigami Lineup Adjustments

Onmyoji Arena will change the lineup of the limited-time free shikigami at 5:00 AM on March 8th, 2021. The new free shikigami will be Miketsu, Hiyoribou, Shuten Doji, Kyuumei Neko, Kiyohime, Tanuki, Dodomeki, and Shiro.

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

Of these shikigami, Dodomeki and Shiro 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 Kidomaru

Where Kidomaru appears, a game of slaughter follows. Thus, we have designed a hunter who can control his chains at will and command imps of the demon domain to torture their target. After Kidomaru binds his target with his chains, he can choose to either drag the target to him or move to the target, and have the imps continuously chase after the target.

Onmyoji Arena New Shikigami Kidomaru

Trait: Child of Shura

Passive trigger: For every 3 times Kidomaru deals damage using basic attacks, he recovers HP and gains an imp. He also gains an imp when sealing enemy shikigami or monsters.

Kidomaru can bind up to 4 imps at a time. Once released, the imps become Imp Scouts that exist for a certain period of time.

Ability 1: Killing Satisfaction

Kidomaru selects an area as a hunting ground. After a short delay, he deals physical damage to enemies in range and inflicts Slow. He also releases all imps in that area. Each imp deals physical damage to enemies in the area upon landing before turning into Imp Scouts. The Imp Scouts will automatically chase nearby enemies for a certain period of time, dealing physical damage with each attack.

Ability 2: Skeletal Chain

Kidomaru throws his chain in the designated direction, dealing physical damage to enemies in its path. If the chain hits an enemy shikigami or a monster, it will stop and capture the target, inflicting Slow and inciting nearby Imp Scouts to attack them, during which Kidomaru also gains an imp.

For a certain period of time afterwards, Kidomaru can select a direction to use this ability again. If the direction of a captured enemy is selected, Kidomaru will rush to their position and deal physical damage. If a direction leading away from the target is selected, Kidomaru will drag the target to himself and deal physical damage.

Ability 3: Raiment of the Waning Moon

Kidomaru becomes hidden and his Movement Speed increases for a certain period of time. He cannot use basic attacks or cast abilities during this time. He also gains an imp. When the hidden state ends, Kidomaru’s Attack Speed is increased for a certain period of time.

Ultimate Ability: Soul Hunter

Kidomaru waves his chains, gaining a shield that can block damage. For every enemy shikigami or monster nearby, he gains an additional 20% Shield. He also enters the Shura state for a certain period of time, during which his Attack Speed increases and he gains Life Steal. Imp Scouts will further increase his Attack Speed and Movement Speed. Additionally, each of Kidomaru’s basic attacks will deal additional physical damage to the target and deal chained physical damage to up to 5 enemies.

This week sees Kidomaru make his official debut on the Heian-kyo battlefield. His dyed skin, Contrarian Bloom, is also available to purchase in the Skin Shop.

The Treacherous Demon Selection Pack will also be available in the General Store. The selection pack includes the new shikigami Kidomaru, Evolved Form Amulet x1, Taichi Mudra x1, and Witchery Bell x8. You can select which to purchase! The Treacherous Demon Selection Pack will be available till 11:59 PM on March 18th, 2021. Don’t miss out on this chance to get Kidomaru!

Shikigami Adjustments

Maestro

Currently, the gameplay of Maestro’s abilities makes it difficult for interaction with others, it’s difficult for enemies to counter, and it has low error tolerance. We hope that, without changing the original gameplay, we can give both sides more room for gamification, and increase the error tolerance of Maestro’s ultimate ability, so that he can have more freedom in choosing when to cast abilities and when chaining.

Trait: Echo

Passive: Maestro’s next basic attack at regular intervals deals additional magic damage.

Ability 1: Arpeggio

Maestro plays musical notes far away in the designated direction, dealing magic damage to enemies hit. If he uses this ability again within 3 seconds, he will play musical notes in the designated direction at a closer distance, dealing a large amount of magic damage to enemies.

Ability 2: Sonic Blast

Maestro releases a sound wave in the designated direction, dealing magic damage and inflicting Slow on enemies hit.

Ability 3: Lingering Sound

Maestro rushes towards the designated location, leaving behind a lingering sound and gaining a shield that can block damage and a Movement Speed bonus. If the ability is used again within 4 seconds, Maestro will return to the position of the lingering sound.

Ultimate Ability: Phantom Zither

Passive trigger: Enemy shikigami hit by Maestro’s abilities will gain a stack of Zither, and have their vision exposed.

Active effect: Maestro detonates all Zither stacks, dealing magic damage to enemy shikigami. Each stack of Zither increases the damage, up to a maximum of 400%.

Yuki Onna

We have reduced the difficulty for Yuki Onna’s abilities to land a hit, and made her damage more stable.

Ability 1: Dusk Snows

Adjusted cast range from 675 yards to 700 yards.

Ultimate Ability: White Out

Adjusted radius from 350 yards to 375 yards.

Momiji

Ability 1: Maple Puppet

Takes effect against enemy minions as well now.
