August 7th 2020 Update Patch Notes

The Onmyoji Arena August 7th 2020 Update sees NetEase Games has made some adjustments for Yoto Hime, Mannendake, Yamakaze, Hiyoribou, and Hana.

Free Shikigami Lineup Adjustments

We will change the lineup of the limited-time free shikigami at 5:00 AM on August 10, 2020. The new free shikigami will be Kubinashi, Kaguya, Kuro, Mannendake, Hangan, Ibaraki Doji, Enma, and Kosodenote.

Onmyoji who own the God of Fortune Month Pact will have the additional free shikigami, Shuten Doji and Shiranui.

Of these shikigami, Enma and Kosodenote have a difficulty of Extreme. Onmyoji who have been in Heian-kyo for less than 7 days can’t use them in battle for free.

Shikigami Adjustments

Yoto Hime

Currently, Yoto Hime is rather weak overall. We have added the ability to trigger attack effects damage to Ability 3: Saber Strike and Ultimate Ability: Ominous Blade to better correspond with her items and overall gameplay. We have also suitably decreased the cooldown times of Ability 3: Saber Strike and Ultimate Ability: Ominous Blade to shorten Yoto Hime’s early-game downtime.

Ability 3: Saber Strike

New Effect: This ability can trigger attack effects.

Ultimate Ability: Ominous Blade

Adjusted cooldown from 90/80/70 seconds to 70 seconds.

New: This ability can trigger attack effects, dealing 40% damage.

Adjusted damage from 110/240/370 (+60% Attack) to 100/220/340 (+50% Attack).


We hope that in situations where Mannendake cannot instantly kill enemies, he can still, to a certain degree, have the ability to fight continuous battles. We have increased the trigger frequency of his Passive ability while also adjusting his abilities’ bonus percentages.

Trait: Bamboo Whisper: Breath

Adjusted additional damage from 10 (+10*level) (+70% extra Attack) to (8*level) (+40% extra Attack).

Adjusted additional healing from 10 (+5*level) (+100% extra Attack) to (10*level) (+50% extra Attack).

Ability 2: Bamboo: Penetrate

Adjusted cooldown from 3.2 seconds to 4/3.75/3.5/3.25/3 seconds.

Adjusted damage from 24/48/72/96/120 (+70/72.5/75/77.5/80% Attack) to 25/55/85/115/145 (+70% Attack).

New Effect: Hitting a shikigami will restore 40 Ki, while hitting a non-shikigami unit will restore 25% Ki (hitting multiple units at once will not restore Ki multiple times).


Yamakaze has overly high flexibility while in the brush, so we have added the Laceration resource mechanic to somewhat limit his flexibility when fleeing and using the brush to adjust his position. We have also made suitable adjustments to Yamakaze’s base attributes to ensure his strength in confrontations.

Base Stats

Adjusted Yamakaze’s HP growth from 140 to 150.

Ability 3: Slash

New Mechanic: When Yamakaze uses Slash, he gains 25 points of Laceration, and when Slash hits an enemy, he will lose 25 points of Laceration. If Laceration reaches the maximum of 100, he will be temporarily unable to use Slash. If he does not use Slash within 3 seconds, then Laceration will gradually decrease.

Ultimate Ability: King of the Forest

New Mechanic: Immediately refresh the cooldown of Slash and make it usable. While this ability is in effect, Yamakaze will gain a 50-point increase to his Laceration maximum.


We have reworked Hiyoribou’s blinding effect to optimize both sides’ experience in battle. We have also adjusted the casting of Ability 1: Warm Day to enhance its playability.

Ability 1: Warm Day

Ability Adjustments: Hiyoribou chooses a direction to cast Warm Day. Warm Day gathers Energy at the original location and flies in the chosen direction after 2.5 seconds. The damage dealt and HP restored by Warm Day gradually increases as Warm Day accumulates Energy up to 2x. Using this ability again will cause Warm Day to prematurely fly.

Ability 3: Sunny Companion

Blind Trigger Condition and Effect Adjustments: When this ability is used, if an enemy shikigami in range is facing Hiyoribou, then stacks of Burning Eyes will be continuously added. Once stacks reach 5, the target will be blinded, making them unable to use abilities or basic attacks.


As adjustments have been made to the Heal Down coefficient of Heal Down Items and because Hana is currently relatively strong in all lanes, we have also reduced Hana’s healing.

Trait: Nectar

Adjusted healing amount from 60 (+40% Ability Power) (+10*level) to 40 (+30% Ability Power) (+8*level)

Item Adjustments

Heal Down Items

Currently, healing shikigami are rather weak overall, so we hope that by controlling the Heal Down coefficient of items that reduce healing, we can ensure that they will not be overly weak once targeted.
Adjusted intermediate Heal Down Items’ Heal Down coefficient from 20% to 15%.

Adjusted advanced Heal Down Items’ Heal Down coefficient from 40% to 35%.
