New Shikigami Invades Heian-kyo!


Ungaikyo is a Mage shikigami, with abilities that can restore his own HP as well as powerful control abilities. He has two forms, Yin and Yang. He can actively switch between these two forms, or he can automatically switch forms when he is sealed to ensure damage dealing. Different forms provide different damage and control effects, and switching forms flexibly according to the specific situation can maximize damage and control on the battlefield.


Trait: Yin and Yang

Ungaikyo has two forms, Yin and Yang. Each form has independent HP. When sealed, he will switch to his other form automatically, and the sealed form needs to restore a certain proportion of HP before it can be used again.
When Ungaikyo deals damage to the enemy, he restores HP to his other form.

Ability 1: Yang – Solar Rotation

Immediately switch to Yin form.

Passive effect: When Ungaikyo deals damage to enemy shikigami, he accumulates Good Karma, and when he accumulates 6 points of Good Karma, his next 3 basic attacks come with a penetrating effect, dealing bonus damage to enemies in his path.

Ability 2: Yang – Lotus

Ungaikyo releases a lotus illusion to a designated location in front, dealing AoE damage and inflicting a Slow effect, the illusion range and damage will increase when charged.

Ability 3: Yang – Dual Lotus Conversion

Ungaikyo summons two lotuses to knock up enemies within a fan in front to its center and deal damage. If there are 2 or more enemies, it will inflict an additional Stun effect.

Ultimate Ability: Yang – A Life of Bitterness

Ungaikyo records the status of himself and the ally shikigami around him, and leaves a mirror image of the recorded shikigami in the same place.

Mirror State – Yang: While the ability lasts, the damage taken by the recorded shikigami will be additionally increased. When taking fatal damage, the recorded shikigami will return to the original recorded position, and their HP will be restored back to the state it was when recorded.

Ability 1: Yin – Dawn Descends

Immediately switch to Yang form.

Passive effect: When Ungaikyo deals damage to enemy shikigami, he will accumulate Bad Karma, and when he accumulates 6 points of Bad Karma, the next 3 basic attacks will deal bonus damage to the target and their surrounding enemies.

Ability 2: Yin – Reincarnation

Ungaikyo summons 6 Buddha Beads around himself, each of which will deal damage and slow down enemies. Charging increases the casting range.

Ability 3: Yin – Instant Lotus Creation

Ungaikyo throws a lotus in the specified direction. Casting the ability again will instantly move Ungaikyo to the lotus’s location, dealing damage and inflicting a knockup effect to surrounding enemies. After hitting an enemy, he will gain a Haste effect and Shield.

Ultimate Ability: Yin – A Mind of Emptiness

Ungaikyo deals AoE damage to the enemies around him, while recording the status of enemy shikigami in range. He leaves a mirror image of the recorded shikigami in the same place.

Mirror State – Yin: While the ability lasts, if the recorded shikigami step out of a certain range centered on the mirror image, they will be directly pulled back to the recorded position, and will be Immobilized.

This week sees Ungaikyo make his debut on the Heian-kyo battlefield.

The All-encompassing Emptiness Selection Pack will also be available in the General Store. The selection pack includes the new shikigami Ungaikyo, Dyed Skin: Corrupt World, Evolved Form Amulet x1, Taichi Mudra x1, and Witchery Bell x8. You can select which to purchase!

Added Prize Pool Update Screen, and Discount Daruma Pack Recommendation Screen.

Optimized Prize Pool Preview Screen, Exchange Screen, Total Draw Progress, Draw Rewards Screen, and display of draw rules. Hope you have a better experience!

Voice System

We have completely revamped the in-game voice system and fixed several issues that affect the in-game experience. We have also added a control panel for the voice channels. We hope that everyone will be able to communicate smoothly with their teammates using the voice system.

The control panel for voice channels has been added to the Team screen, shikigami selection interface screen, and in battles. You can adjust the channels of the microphone and speaker using the control panel.

Fixed the issue of disconnecting from the team voice channel when selecting “Fight Again” in the results screen under some circumstances.

Fixed the issue of the voice channels changing automatically under some circumstances.

Fixed the issue where the in-game audio would sometimes play using speakers even when headphones are connected when using voice chat.

Fixed the issue of sometimes not being able to use the voice input after switching on the microphone.

Optimized the process of setting up voice permissions. Added the ability to automatically jump to the phone settings to quickly adjust the voice permissions.

Gallery System

In order to make it easier for Onmyoji to view the skins you have collected, and to solve the scattered lore of multiple skin series problems, lack of collection overview, tedious and single display, and cumbersome operation, we have launched a new Gallery system.
It is divided into four modules, namely Skin Collection, Diversified World, Shikigami Scroll and My Achievements. Among them, Skin Collection and Diversified World are the new collection categories in the Gallery this time.

In Skin Collection, all Onmyoji can review all skins owned currently, and we make a separate display page according to Quality, Shikigami, and Time Obtained for you to view skins you owned in different categories. You can view the number of skins of each quality you own currently more intuitively.

Diversified World is one of the characteristics of Onmyoji Arena, and also a significantly important part of the Gallery system. It mainly contains skins of different backgrounds currently available in Onmyoji Arena. We have also added an entrance to the Lore Theme Site, so that you can better enjoy and understand the splendid world of Onmyoji Arena.

Additionally, we have also prepared collection rewards for all Onmyoji who are keen to collect. Collect all skins included in the current series to obtain Dynamic Exclusive Avatar Frames, Dynamic Exclusive Titles, and in-game Exclusive Nickname Frames.

Balance Adjustments


We have suitably strengthened Kujira’s laning ability.

Trait: Bone Sword

Ability 3: Whale Bone: Station

Adjusted Shield points from 40/80/120/160/200 (+70% extra Attack) to 40/80/120/160/200 (+4% Max HP).


Because the bonus and trigger range of maple leaf doll are difficult to judge, resulting in negative experience due to damage loss, we decided to remove the distance limit of Ability 1 Maple Puppet.

Ability 1: Maple Puppet

Removed the bonus and trigger distance limit of maple leaf doll.

Shiro Mujou

The damage ability of Shiro Mujou is a bit too low compared to the difficulty of its ability to hit, so we appropriately increased his damage.

Ability 2: Immolation

Adjusted cooldown from 11 seconds to 10 seconds.

Ultimate Ability: Hands of Hell

Adjusted damage from 70/105/140 (+25% Ability Power) to 80/120/160 (+30% Ability Power).


Asura’s suppression is strong in the early and mid game, so we decided to lower Ability 1: Lotus Extermination Melee form’s recovery effect and damage ability and flexibility while Rationality is at 0.

Trait: Son of Darkness

Irrational state’s attack speed and movement speed bonus adjusted from 10% (+1%*current level) to 10% (+0.5% current level), attack additional damage adjusted from (+10 current level) (+15% extra Attack) to (+7 current level) (+10% extra Attack)

We will slightly increase the protection capabilities of Mushishi. At the same time, the survivability of Mushishi currently with Ability Power builds is poor. We will slightly increase her HP conversion ratios and bonus.

Natural Passive: Dream of Metamorphosis

Ability Power to HP conversion ratio adjusted from 2.4 to 2.8.

Ability 1: Dormant Chrysalis

Adjusted cooldown from 8 seconds to 7 seconds.

Ability 3: Butterfly Shelter

The overall performance of the Vampira is slightly weak. We will increase its passive bonus to improve her performance when at a disadvantage, and slightly increase the recovery ability and casting frequency of Ability 2.

Natural Passive: Bloodline

Lost HP damage bonus adjusted from 0.2% to 0.25%

Ability 2: Blood Boost

Increased Ability Power heal bonus from 5% to 7.5%.

Adjusted cooldown from 9/8.5/8/7.5/7 seconds to 9/8.25/7.5/6.75/6 seconds.


Yumekui is relatively weak among the Tank shikigami. Hence we will increase his control strength and mobility.

Adjusted subsequent base HP Regen from 0.4% to 0.5%.

Optimizations and Adjustments

Fixed an issue with the gem disappearing from Hana’s navel during the still frame of the close-up scene and yellow skin on the side when rotating of Hana’s Fleeting Moonlight.

We have partly updated the screen for when you successfully match in a Rivalry game, to further optimize the visual performance when matching. The main update is to the effect of the matched screen in Lobby: Spring Sakura, Lobby: Winter Snow, Lobby: Neon Rain, Lobby: Bronze Daylight, and Lobby: Algae Sea Night Tide. The successful match screens for the remaining Lobby Scenes will be updated gradually.

The shikigami difficulty of Kuro Mujou, Hone Onna and Enma has been adjusted from Hard to Medium.
