Balance Adjustments


Currently, Kiyohime’s Ability 2 Serpent’s Shackle has a low hit rate, making it difficult to become a threat to the enemy Shikigami during laning. Therefore, we slightly increased its hit rate, and reallocated some of the healing effects to damage to help Kiyohime be more aggressive during laning. Also, while laning, the damage dealt from Kiyohime’s Ability 3 Sacrificial Fire is less than her basic attacks. This requires Kiyohime to use basic attacks to deal the final blow to minions. We readjusted the ability’s slay mechanism against minions, hoping to make Kiyohime rely more on her ability 3 during the laning period.

Ability 2 Serpent’s Shackle

Increased Serpent’s Shackles projectile speed from 1,600 to 1,800.

Once a link has been established, healing effect from Sacrificial Fire has been reduced from 30/45/60/75/90 (+25% Ability Power) to 10/25/40/55/70 (+25% Ability Power).

Once a link has been established, bonus damage from Sacrificial Fire has been increased from 10/15/20/25/30 (+3%/3.5%/4%/4.5%/5% Target Max HP) to 20/25/30/35/40 (+3%/3.5%/4%/4.5%/5% Target Max HP).

Ability 3 Sacrificial Fire

The damage is increased from 40/70/100/130/160 (+30%/33.75%/37.5%/41.25%/45% spell power) to 40/75/110/145/180 (+30%/36.25%/42.5%/48.75%/55% spell power).

After dealing damage to a minion, if the minion’s health percentage is lower than {7}, it will be directly sealed.

Ultimate Ability Irritable Spirit

The provided movement speed bonus is decreased from 30% at all levels to 10%.\n


Currently, Oitsuki’s performance during mid game is rather weak. We increased the damage growth for Ability 2 Crescent Moon to raise Oitsuki’s damage output during mid game.

Ability 2 Crescent Moon

Damage dealt to enemies along the path increased from 80/115/150/185/220 (+45% Ability Power) to 80/125/170/215/260 (+45% Ability Power).

Damage dealt to enemies along the path increased from 50/85/120/155/190 (+85% Ability Power) to 50/100/150/200/250 (+85% Ability Power).


Currently, the damage growth for Ootengu’s Ability 3 Gale Force Wind is too low, making Ootengu’s damage output rather low during mid game. Therefore, we increased the damage growth and slightly raised the projectile speed to improve the ability’s combo chains.

Ability 3 Gale Force Wind

Increased Gale Force Wind projectile speed from 1,000 to 1,100;

Damage increased from 60/110/160/210/260 (+40% Ability Power) to 60/130/200/270/340 (+50% Ability Power);

Hako Shoujo

Compared to other Support-type Shikigami, Hako Shoujo’s protection falls short. Her control effects overly depend on the Charm and Infatuated mechanisms from Ability 2 Glittering Shield, and Ability 2 requires keeping a link for a prolonged time, making it hard to use it during teamfights. For adjustments, we reduced the link time required by Ability 2 Glittering Shield to inflict Charm, and added a new shield mechanism for her Ultimate Ability Treasure Box, elevating her performance during teamfights and enhancing “individual protection”. This trait provides Hako Shoujo with a unique advantage compared to other Support-type Shikigami.

Ability 2 Glittering Shield

The required time to maintain link to trigger Charm reduced from 2 seconds to 1.8 seconds;

Damage frequency increased from 1 hit per 0.5 seconds to 1 hit per 0.45 seconds.

Ultimate Ability Treasure Box

If the collected Shikigami is an ally, grants the ally a 200/400/600 (+50% Ability Power) shield that lasts for 2 seconds upon release.


Currently, Hana can control enemies and not face too much danger. Also, using her abilities in succession allows her to control the enemy for a rather long time, making her somewhat overpowering. Therefore, we slightly adjusted her control effects in hopes of providing players using her or fighting her with a better gameplay experience.

Passive Nectar

Reduced control duration from 1.2 seconds to 0.9 second.

Gintoki Sakata

After the last adjustment, Gintoki is still overpowered. Relying on the AoE damage from the first hit of Silver Soul, he can easily clear lanes and monsters during mid to late game. This gives him a high economic and EXP advantage, so we hoped to set a limit on these fields.

Ultimate Ability Silver Soul

Base damage from consuming 1 stack of Sugar Rush reduced from 70/255/440 to 60/245/430;

Reduced damage multiplier against minions from 100% to 80%;

Reduced damage multiplier against monsters from 60% to 50%.

Hone Onna

Hone Onna’s current damage output is rather high, and with Ability 1 Triple Slash, she gains Invisibility and is able to sneak up on enemies undetected, making her a huge threat to enemy DPS Shikigami. We hope to slightly limit her damage as well as slightly adjust the Invisibility from Ability 1 Triple Slash.

Passive Bone Birth

Reduced the damage from 40% Attack to 35% Attack.

Ability 1 Triple Slash

Reduced time interval from entering to revealing stealth from 1 second to 0.8 seconds\nDamage adjusted from 90/110/150/190/230 (+100% extra attack) to 75/110/145/180/215 (+80% extra attack)


With Enma’s long range and Ability 3’s high mobility, it is quite difficult to counter Enma. We hope that, by slightly reducing Enma’s capabilities and lowering her mobility, it provides opposing players with a reasonable window of opportunity to counter Enma.

Ability 3 Meditation

Reduced Haste effect from 25%/30%/35%/40%/45% to 20%/22.5%/25%/27.5%/30%.

Kuro Mujou

Kuro Mujou is currently too strong in the Jungle. We wanted to maintain his current Top lane performance while limiting his Jungle capabilities, so we adjusted the damage dealt to monsters from his Passive Soul Slayer. Also, there are times his Ability 1 Soul Eater does not successfully hit enemies, causing a bad gameplay experience. We decided to optimize this to provide Kuro Mujou players with a better experience.

Passive Soul Slayer

Reduced the damage dealt to monsters from 70% to 40%.

Ability 1 Soul Eater

Guaranteed to deal damage to the main target.


The experience for Izaya’s Ability 1 is quite disappointing and the hit rate is rather low, so we slightly increased the hitbox of the bullets for Ability 1 Shrill Shuttle. We also balanced Izaya’s strength by reducing the buff for allies and debuff for enemies after Izaya casting Ability 3 Different Paths. We hope to maintain Izaya’s current strength while providing a better experience.

Ability 1 Shrill Shuttle

Increased the hitbox width from 180 to 200.

Ability 3 Different Paths

Haste effect reduced from 40% to 20%. Once enemies are done teleporting, reduced the Slow effect from 50% to 30%.


Jinmenju is currently too powerful, and the Slow effect inflicted on enemies is too strong. We wanted to limit these factors, so we slightly reduced the Slow effect from Jinmenju’s Ability 3.

Ability 3 Divine Tree

Slow effect from when the Divine Tree disappears reduced from 55%/60%/65%/70%/75% to 35%/40%/45%/50%/55%.

Onmyodo Adjustments

Occult: Haste

Currently, Occult: Haste and the new item provide too much Movement Speed to Shikigami, making some Shikigami overpowered. So we slightly reduced the Movement Speed provided by Occult: Haste.

Haste effect reduced from 30% (+1.5%*Current Level) to 25% (+1.25%*Current Level);

Adjusted subsequent reduction within 3 seconds from 12% (+0.6%*Current Level) to 10% (+0.5%*Current Level).

Optimizations and Adjustments

Optimized some UI experience from Fun Mode and the Shop.

Fixed the issue of Kaguya’s Ability 3 Bamboo Illusion triggering Stuns multiple times under certain conditions.

Fixed the issue of Asura’s Ultimate Ability Purgatory Massacre triggering Knockup multiple times under certain conditions.

Free Shikigami Lineup Adjustments

Onmyoji Arena will change the lineup of the limited-time free shikigami at 5:00 AM on August 14th, 2023. The new free shikigami will be Enma, Kaguya, Asura, Hoshiguma Doji, Dai Shimei, Senhime, Kaoru, and Ittan-momen.

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

Of these shikigami, Ittan-momen has a difficulty of Hard. Onmyoji who have been in Heian-kyo for less than 7 days can’t use her in battle for free.
