September 3rd 2021 Update Patch Notes

Free Shikigami Lineup Adjustments

Onmyoji Arena will change the lineup of the limited-time free shikigami at 5:00 AM on September 6th, 2021. The new free shikigami will be Tesso, Yamausagi, Kyonshi Imoto, Inugami, Kiyohime, Ootengu, Kuro Mujou, and Shiro.

Onmyoji who own the God of Fortune Month Pact will have the additional free shikigami, Enmusubi and Menreiki.

Of these shikigami, Kuro Mujou 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.

Balance Adjustments

Nekomata

With Kuronosuke’s assistance, the combo of Nekomata’s Ability 2: Scuffling Kitties and Ability 3: Come in Kitties has strong ranged harassing capability and is difficult to counter, so we have decided to suitably reduce their damage.

Ability 3: Come in Kitties

Adjusted damage from 70/100/130/160/190/220/250 (+100% Attack) to 40/70/100/130/160/190/220 (+100% Attack).

Shiro

In the previous adjustments to Shiro, we were hoping that by reducing his ability damage to balance the change in mechanics, we could increase his fluidity when chaining abilities and lower his threat to the enemy’s DPS shikigami. But in actual performance, reducing Shiro’s base damage had a rather large impact on his laning power. So, we have decided to readjust the base damage of his Ability 1: Soul-sapping Banner.

Ability 1: Soul-sapping Banner

Adjusted damage from 70/120/170/220/270 (+30% Ability Power) to 70/130/190/250/310 (+30% Ability Power).

Newly added: Deals 120% damage to minions.

Izaya

To reduce the difficulty for Izaya’s abilities to land a hit and make her damage more stable, we have adjusted her Ability 1: Shrill Shuttle and Ultimate Ability: Ceaseless Cycle.

Ability 1: Shrill Shuttle

Reduced shuttle generation time.

Adjusted Ability Power bonus from 35% to 40%.

Ultimate Ability: Ceaseless Cycle

Increased the speed of pulling enemies to the center.

Shuten Doji

Given Shuten Doji’s mediocre laning power and teamfight performance in the top lane, we have decided to strengthen his abilities in the Rage state to help him make better use of the enhancement mechanic. In addition, we have reduced the cooldown of his displacement ability to add more flexibility.

Ability 1: Lament

Adjusted Max HP Percentage of HP Regen in the Rage state from 3.75/4.5/5.25/6/6.75% to 5/6/7/8/9%.

Ability 2: Demonic Punch

Adjusted Armor Penetration in the Rage state from 14/18/22/26/30% to 16/21/26/31/36%.

Ability 3: Rampage

Adjusted cooldown from 14 seconds to 12 seconds.

Enmusubi

The assembly effect of Enmusubi’s ultimate ability is highly strategic in the mid and late game when fighting over Orochi and pushing. Also, she is strong at protecting herself and taking damage. To balance her comprehensive strength, we have lowered her Armor and Magic Resist growth and shield level bonus.

Trait: Fate Realized

Adjusted Armor and Magic Resist growth from 2 to 1.6.

Ability 1: Flower Moon

Adjusted shield level bonus from 5 to 3.5.

Kikyo

We have adjusted Kikyo’s Armor Penetration effect to increase her damage in the late game. Meanwhile, we have also increased the range and control effect of her ultimate ability to strengthen the skill’s protecting power.

Ability 1: Soul Collector

Adjusted enhanced Armor Penetration from 15% to 20%.

Ultimate Ability: Sacred Realm

Adjusted range from 350 yards to 425 yards.

Adjusted Stun duration from 0.8/1/1.2 seconds to 1.6 seconds.

Hannya

As the previous adjustments to Hannya did not meet our expectations, we have made further adjustments to his Ability 1 mark’s damage and his base stats.

Base Stats

Adjusted Base Armor from 57 to 62.

Adjusted base HP Regen from 12 to 16.

Ability 1: Heart of Jealousy

Adjusted Attack bonus from 16/21/26/31/36% to 20/25/30/35/40%.

Puppeteer

We have slightly reduced Puppeteer’s damage in Ranged form to control her damage in the early and mid game. Meanwhile, we have moved part of damage from Ability 3 to Ability 2, to focus her damage on Ability 2 that is cast by charging.

Ability 2: Puppet Rush

Adjusted base damage from 110/170/230/290/350/410 (+110% extra Attack) to 100/160/220/280/340/400 (+125% extra Attack).

Ability 3: Puppet Burst

Adjusted damage from 60/110/160/210/260/310 (+100% extra Attack) to 60/105/150/195/240/285 (+75% extra Attack).

Optimizations and Adjustments

Smart casting enemy selection optimization:

We will try optimizing the smart casting enemy selection of some abilities. The first batch of adjustments include Aoandon’s Ability 2 and Kosodenote’s Ability 1.

In most cases, Aoandon’s Ability 2 is used to deal damage to, slow, or lower the resistance of enemy shikigami, instead of being cast on allies. We have adjusted the smart casting so that it will stop selecting ally targets to avoid casting on yourself at maximum range.

While connected, the basic attack of Kosodenote’s Ability 1 will now first select the connected target of the same priority rather than the target with low HP, in the hope of fixing the issue that makes it difficult for Kosodenote to attack the connected target when there is another target nearby.
