New Shikigami Izaya Invades Heian-kyo!

“The shuttle of destiny will always shoot in its fated direction.”

Izaya is a ranged Mage shikigami whose abilities are designed around the themes of “Fate Weaver” and “Space-time Traversal.” Izaya is designed as a character who can weave people’s fates, so she can use her Ability 2: Brocade to weave enemies’ destinies together. Also, as the Shuttle of Heaven, Izaya has the ability to traverse space and time. Thus, she can use the Different Paths ability to create magic circles to change units’ positions on the battlefield. Using this with her Ultimate Ability: Ceaseless Cycle will extend this pull effect and deal massive damage to the enemy.

Trait: Shuttle of Heaven

Passive effect: Izaya gains 1 stack of Shuttle of Heaven when her abilities hit an enemy. Upon reaching 3 stacks, the next ability Izaya casts will be enhanced:

Shrill Shuttle: Increases the number of shuttles cast to 5.

Brocade: Gains a healing effect equal to a proportion of the damage dealt by this ability.

Different Paths: Grants ally targets who were transported Shield and decreases enemies’ Movement Speed.

Ability 1: Shrill Shuttle

Izaya shoots out three small shuttles at the designated position. An explosion occurs when the small shuttle hits the first enemy in its path, dealing magic damage to enemies in range. If the small shuttles hit the same target multiple times, subsequent damage will be decreased.

At the same time, the small shuttles add a Seal of Corrosion to the enemies hit. Seal of Corrosion will be triggered by damage dealt by Izaya, dealing magic damage and inflicting targets with Slow. If an enemy shikigami’s Seal of Corrosion is triggered, it will decrease the cooldown of Ability 2: Brocade.

Ability 2: Brocade

Izaya commands a shuttle to fly through the designated area, slightly knocking back all enemies in range and dealing magic damage. At the same time, the thread of destiny connects all enemies in range to one another. After a short delay, connected enemies take magic damage again.

Each additional connected enemy shikigami increases this damage.

Ability 3: Different Paths

Izaya creates a circle of shuttles at the designated location. Using this ability again creates another circle of shuttles near the first. After a short delay, both magic circles will be activated, transporting all units from one magic circle to the other, except monsters. If ally shikigami are transported, they will gain a Haste effect. If enemy shikigami are transported, they will take magic damage.

The larger the distance between the two shuttles, the longer the time needed for activation.

Ultimate Ability: Ceaseless Cycle

Izaya casts a woven Disaster in the designated direction. Disaster gradually expands its range when it hits an enemy or at maximum distance, dealing magic damage over time to enemies in range and pulling them to the center. After a period of time, Disaster will have expanded to its maximum range and will end, dealing magic damage and Stun to all enemies in range.

This week sees Izaya make her official debut on the Heian-kyo battlefield!

The Destiny Shuttle Selection Pack will also be available in the General Store. The selection pack includes the new shikigami Izaya, Evolved Form Amulet x1, Taichi Mudra x1, and Eight Petals x8. You can select which to purchase! The Destiny Shuttle Selection Pack will be available till 11:59 PM on September 2nd, 2021. Don’t miss out on this chance to get Izaya!

Shikigami Adjustments


Kanko’s performance is comparatively weak in the mid and late game, so we’ve increased his growth to a certain degree.

Ability 2: Bamboo Missiles

New Effect: Kanko’s Crit Rate can increase this ability’s damage up to 50% (max value is reached at 100% Crit Rate).

Ability 3: Pipe Throw

New Effect: Kanko’s Crit Rate can increase this ability’s damage up to 50% (max value is reached at 100% Crit Rate).

Ultimate Ability: Bamboo Blast

Adjusted Attack Damage Bonus from 40%/40%/40% to 40%/45%/50%.


Soul-sapping Banner‘s attack range is different from Ability 3: Soul Array’s effect range, which leads to more time spent understanding the skill’s use in actual combat. We’ve unified the skills’ ranges, making Soul-sapping Banner’s damage range more clear. At the same time, in order to increase fluidity when chaining abilities, casting Ability 2: Soul Curse will now refresh the cooldown of Ability 1.

We adjusted the other abilities’ damage to balance its strength

Ability 1: Soul-sapping Banner

Adjusted Soul-sapping Banner’s Attack Range from 500 to 425.

Adjusted damage from 70/135/200/265/330 (+0.5 Ability Power) to 70/120/170/220/270 (+0.4 Ability Power).

Ability 2: Soul Curse

New Effect: Refreshes the cooldown of Ability 1: Soul-sapping Banner upon use, but will not provide additional charging.

Ability 3: Soul Array

Adjusted range from 375 to 425.

Adjusted Ability Power bonus from 50% to 40%.

Adjusted subsequent damage from repeated hits from 75% to 50%.
