NEW SHIKIGAMI HIYORIBOU
“The sun will make you feel better!”
As a spirit who only comes out on sunny days, Hiyoribou can cast Warm Day to attack enemies and heal allies, and she can unleash blinding sunlight to reduce her enemies’ vision. The sunshine doll behind Hiyoribou also has a powerful protective ability; it can aid followed shikigami with attacking, and it can protect followed targets on the brink of death.
Natural Passive: Pray for Sunshine
Passive effect: While Hiyoribou’s sunshine doll is following an allied shikigami, it will provide them with an Armor and Magic Resist bonus while also assisting the target with basic attacks. Once the sunshine doll is a certain distance away from Hiyoribou, it will no longer follow the allied shikigami.
Ability 1: Warm Day
Hiyoribou casts Warm Day at the designated position. After a short delay, Warm Day will advance in the opposite direction of Hiyoribou, dealing Magic Damage and inflicting a Slow effect to all enemies in its path. After Warm Day flies its max distance, it will fly back to the sunshine doll, dealing Magic Damage to enemies on the way. If Warm Day hits an enemy shikigami while flying, it will restore HP to allied shikigami it meets afterward.
Ability 2: Sunny Companion
Hiyoribou makes the sunshine doll follow a designated allied shikigami. The sunshine doll will assist the target with basic attacks, dealing Magic Damage to the enemy.
Ability 3: Scorching Sunlight
Hiyoribou makes the sun rise and shine in the designated direction, dealing Magic Damage to enemy shikigami it shines upon. If an enemy shikigami in range is facing Hiyoribou, then 1 stack of Burning Eyes will be added every second, gradually reducing their range of vision.
If the sunshine doll is following, it will also cast Scorching Sunlight in the same direction.
Ultimate Ability: Noontime Sun
Hiyoribou makes the sunshine doll follow a designated allied shikigami. If the followed shikigami takes fatal damage within the short protection period, the Sunshine Doll will make them immune to all damage for a certain length of time.
Hiyoribou will first be available during this week’s Shikigami Brawl.
