Mechanics Adjustments

Ubume

Currently, enemies can easily avoid Ubume’s abilities and they lack damage during the late game, making her overall performance relatively weak. That’s why we’ve adjusted some of the mechanics of her abilities, optimizing their casting rules to improve accuracy and consistency. We hope that these adjustments will improve Ubume’s controllability and damage limits while ensuring that she remains relatively easy to use. We hope that this will provide a better experience for players who like using Ubume.

Trait: Raven Blade, Ability 1: Shadow Wing

Swapped the Trait and Ability 1, ensuring that Ubume’s damage has more room for growth.

The HP recovered from Raven Blade will no longer increase with the number of shikigami hit.

Ability 2: Crane Song

Reduced the ability casting delay of the 2nd stage from 1 second to 0.6 seconds.

Ability 3: Night Visitor

Added: The moment the apparition returns to Ubume, it triggers at its current position, dealing damage and inflicting Stun on all enemies within a circular area.

Ultimate Ability: Hack and Slash

Added: Each stage of damage of the ultimate ability will stack the Trait and Ability 1 passive, as well as grant the corresponding buff bonus.

Ubume can use Flash to change the casting position while casting her ultimate ability.

Balance Adjustments

Aobozu

After the previous adjustments, we’ve observed that when selecting Aobozu’s ultimate ability Everything Is Empty, most players chose the Buddha’s Heart Form over the Demonbane Form.

In the current version, the capabilities of Aobozu’s Buddha’s Heart Form to take and deal damage are indeed superior to his Demonbane Form. That’s why we’ve reduced the damage capabilities of his Buddha’s Heart Form while increasing the damage capabilities of his Demonbane Form. We hope that this adjustment will emphasize the differences in Aobozu’s positioning and builds in his different forms. The Buddha’s Heart Form will retain its control and capability to withstand damage, while the Demonbane Form will have greater flexibility and damage dealing capabilities. We hope that this will provide more choices in the ever-changing battlefield for those players who enjoy using Aobozu.

Buddha’s Heart Form:

Ability 2: Divine Greatness

Reduced Max HP bonus from 5.5% to 4%.

Reduced Max HP bonus of the mark from 8% to 6%.

Demonbane Form:

Ability 2: Divine Greatness

Increased Attack bonus of the mark from 120% to 150%. Adjusted extra HP bonus from 5% to 3%.

Reduced cooldown from 2.5 seconds to 2.25 seconds.

Ultimate Ability: Everything Is Empty

Increased damage from 250/375/500 (+125% extra Attack) to 250/425/600 (+150% extra Attack).

Kisei

Due to the mechanic of the recharge time being shortened when attacks hit, Kisei’s performance is rather extreme. In certain situations, Kisei’s casting frequency and damage far surpass those of other Mage shikigami. At the same time, it is difficult for enemies to clearly determine whether Kisei’s abilities are on cooldown. This results in experienced Kisei players being far stronger than experienced players of other shikigami.

That’s why we’ve adjusted the cooldown mechanic so that if the stones do not form a grid, the recharge time will be shortened by a certain amount, thereby controlling the casting frequency even in extreme scenarios. We’ve also increased the damage of a single instance. At the same time, we’ve reduced the difference in explosion delay between the big and small stones. We hope that this will make the quantity and delay of the explosions clearer and more predictable for both teams.

Ability 1: Black Stone’s Flight

Increased damage from 60/115/170/225/280 (+60% of Ability Power) to 80/140/200/260/320 (+75% of Ability Power).

Reduced recharge interval from 5/4.5/4./3.5/3 seconds to 4.5/4/3.5/3/2.5 seconds.

Removed: When attacks hit enemy shikigami, shortens the recharge time by 1.25 seconds.

Added: If no grid forms when the black stones are cast, shortens the recharge time by 2 seconds.

Increased grid formation speed from 1600 to 2600. Increased explosion delay from 0.1 seconds to 0.35 seconds.

Ability 2: Stone of Duality

Enhanced Black Stone’s Flight damage has been increased from 80/150/220/290/360 (+80% of Ability Power) (+10/11.5/13/14.5/16% of target’s lost HP) to 100/170/240/310/380 (+95% of Ability Power) (+10/11.5/13/14.5/16% of target’s lost HP).

Mouba

Mouba is rather powerful on the whole. She relies on the high mobility and Control Immunity characteristics of her ultimate ability to make it difficult for enemies to counter her. We’ve now changed the Control Immunity effect of her ultimate ability into a certain level of Control Reduction in the hope that this will maintain the casting feel of the ultimate ability while ensuring that there is some room for the opponents to counter.

Ultimate Ability: Bowl Barrage

Mouba’s Control immunity while in overdrive has been changed to Mouba gains 60% Control Reduction while in overdrive.

Optimizations and Adjustments

Added Letter of Bonds feature.

To increase the effectiveness of making friends and forming parties in General, a Letter of Bonds feature has been added to General. Players can send Friend Requests, Friend Themes, Friend Tags, and other related information in the channel.

Added Personality Name Cards and Bond Rewards

We have further optimized the display of player information, adding a Personality Name Card feature. Tap the other player’s avatar to view their Personality Name Card.

At the same time, a reward preview has been added to the Bond interface. Complete different Bond quests and satisfy the requirements to claim different Bond exclusive Personality Name Cards.

Optimized Home Page Display

We have optimized the layout and decorations of the Home Page to better display the player’s achievements and shikigami-related information. The original Signature, Friend Note, Album, and other content has been moved to the Social Page.

A new Like feature has been added to the Home Page. Post-Match Likes and Home Page Likes will be added to the calculation.

Optimized the skip cutscene for some shikigami skins. It includes, Kyonshi Imoto’s Red Jade Champion and Black Jade Dragon, Shiranui’s Abundant Jade, Yoto Hime’s Ecliptic Meander, Nekomata’s Golden Brew, Hiyoribou’s Harvest Sail, Vampira’s Phantom Bats, Higanbana’s Dreamy Song of Sea, Suzuka Gozen’s Summer Ark, Chin’s Bamboo Kite, and Kiyohime’s Amorous River.

Free Shikigami Lineup Bulletin

We will change the lineup of the limited-time free shikigami at 5:00 AM on 12/26. The new free shikigami will be Jikikaeru, Ebisu, Shuten Doji, Hone Onna, Yamawaro, Dai Shimei, Hangan, and Kamaitachi.

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

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