Balance Adjustments

Satori

As Satori is relatively weak in the late game, we’ve reduced the cooldown of her Ability 3 and increased the damage of her ultimate ability in the hope that this will make her stronger in the late game.

Ability 3: Dash Attack

Reduced cooldown from 12 seconds to 12/11.5/11/10.5/10 seconds.

Ultimate Ability: Home Run

Increased damage from 60 (+70% extra Attack) (+10*current level) to 60 (+105% extra Attack) (+10*current level).

Increased damage for 1 stack of mark from 75 (+87.5% extra Attack) (+12.5*current level) to 75 (+122.5% extra Attack) (+12.5*current level).

Increased damage for 2 stacks of mark from 90 (+105% extra Attack) (+15*current level) (+9% of lost HP) to 90 (+140% extra Attack) (+15*current level) (+9% of lost HP).

Satori can no longer hit the Club Bomb of a Satori on the opposing team.

Kinnara

As Kinnara is currently rather powerful overall, we’ve reduced the damage of her ultimate ability while maintaining her high mobility characteristics.

Trait: Tune

Optimized the display clarity of the range circle.

Ultimate Ability: Flit

Reduced damage from 5 (+8% Attack)/7.5 (+13% Attack)/10 (+18% Attack) to 5 (+5% Attack)/7.5 (+10% Attack)/10 (+15% Attack).

Tenjo Kudari

Tenjo Kudari has overwhelming suppression capability in the laning phase while being relatively weaker in the late game. We hope to lower her early game suppression capability by weakening her Ability 1 and 2. At the same time, we’ve improved the effect of Ability 3 and her ultimate ability to increase her late game capabilities. We hope that this will balance her early and late game performance.

Ability 1: Rock Throw

Reduced base damage from 120/170/220/270/320 to 90/135/180/225/270.

Ability 2: Promise

Reduced the duration of Eye of the Watcher from 5 seconds to 3 seconds.

Ability 3: Joy

Increased Delayed Calculation Percentage from 40%/42.5%/45%/47.5%/50% to 50%/52.5%/55%/57.5%/60%.

Ultimate Ability: Rain Shelter

Increased base HP of spirit house from 700/1400/2100 to 1000/1800/2600.

Youko

Youko’s damage in the late game is somewhat lacking, and his ultimate ability doesn’t feel sufficiently impactful. That’s why we hope to increase his late game damage and the damage of his ultimate ability to improve his performance in the late game.

Ability 2: Wind Blade

Adjusted the damage of the second blade from 10 (+40% Attack)/20 (+47.5% Attack)/30 (+55% Attack)/40 (+62.5% Attack)/50 (+70% Attack) to 10 (+40% Attack)/20 (+50% Attack)/30 (+60% Attack)/40 (+70% Attack)/50 (+80% Attack).

Ultimate Ability: Blade Cyclone

Adjusted the physical damage of each blade from (+45% Attack)/(+50% Attack)/(+55% Attack) to (+45% Attack)/(+52.5% Attack)/(+60% Attack).

Hannya

As Hannya is relatively weak overall, we’ve increased his skill damage in the hope that this will increase his suppression and harassing capabilities in the laning phase.

Ability 2: Ghoul Mask

Increased base damage from 30/60/90/120/150 (55% Attack) to 35/70/105/140/175 (60% Attack).

Ultimate Ability: Inner Demon

Adjusted Attack Damage from 20/40/60 to 40/60/80.

Kiyohime

Among the Mid lane shikigami, Kiyohime is rather powerful on the whole. Due to the high Control Reduction of her ultimate ability, it is very difficult for enemies to effectively target her once she has obtained the advantage. That’s why we’ve reduced her late game damage and her Damage Reduction effect.

Ability 3: Sacrificial Fire

Adjusted Ability Power bonus from 30/35/40/45/50% to 30/33.75/37.5/41.25/45%.

Ultimate Ability: Star Evolution

Reduced Control Reduction from 70/75/80% to 60/65/70%.

Yasha

Yasha’s flexibility allows him gain the advantage in small-scale battles during the early game. However, in the mid-to-late game, there is less room for error during teamfights. Overall, he is relatively weak among jungler shikigami. That’s why we’ve increased the growth of his Ability 3 and ultimate ability in the hope that this will improve his performance in the mid-to-late game.

Ability 3: Bloodbath

Increased base damage from 80/135/190/245/300 to 80/145/210/275/340.

Increased Slow from 40/42.5/45/47.5/50% to 40/45/50/55/60%.

Ultimate Ability: Underworld Sea

Increased minimum damage from 200/400/600 (+100% extra Attack) to 200/450/700 (+120% extra Attack).

Summer Ashes

The stats provided by Summer Ashes are highly universal and cost-effective. At the same time, its item special effects can provide high damage during a prolonged battle. This has resulted in Summer Ashes being too widely-used and its cost effectiveness being too high. We will suitably reduce the cost effectiveness of its stats to lower its priority among shikigami relying on Ability Power and Attack Damage.

Reduced Main Stats from 80 to 60.

Optimizations and Adjustments

Mahjong Fight

  • To help you gain a better understanding of the rules and gameplay of Mahjong Fight, we’ve added a new Mahjong Fight tutorial. There are also generous rewards for completing the Mahjong Fight tutorial.
  • We have adjusted the display of bond icons when bonds of tiles on the field are activated, to provide players a way to quickly understand the bond situation on the field.
  • We’ve added an auto place feature for tiles. When entering the locked state, if the quantity of tiles on the field is lower than the maximum allowed quantity, we will automatically place the highest value tile in the Preparation Seat into the field. We hope that this can eliminate the issue of players occasionally forgetting to place their tiles.
  • As some of the players who have just started Mahjong Fight may not be familiar with the active abilities and natural passives of tiles, we’ve added descriptions of the active abilities in the View Abilities section of the Tile Box screen. We hope players will gain a better understanding of the abilities when buying tiles. We’ve also added the recommended positioning in the tile information. We hope that this can provide some help to new players on how they can place the tiles.
  • We’ve also adjusted the lock feature of tiles in the Tile Box. We hope that players will think more carefully when locking tiles. Therefore, when the Tile Box is locked, new tiles will not be refreshed in the empty slots of the Tile Box.

In the official modes Ranked Match, Match Mode, and Fun Mode (excluding Mahjong Fight and Shikigami Defense), the damage over time effect applied to shikigami will not interrupt the HP regen gained from leveling up.

Free Shikigami Lineup Bulletin

We will change the lineup of the limited-time free shikigami at 5:00 AM on 12/19. The new free shikigami will be Enma, Momo, Enmusubi, Jorogumo, Shishio, Kiyohime, Mouba, and Yokinshi.

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

Of these shikigami, Mouba and Yokinshi 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.
