July 31st 2020 Update Patch Notes

The Onmyoji Arena July 31st 2020 Update sees NetEase Games has made some adjustments for Itsumade, Onikiri, Yuki Onna, Satori, and Ibaraki Doji.

Free Shikigami Lineup Adjustments

Onmyoji Arena will change the lineup of the limited-time free shikigami at 5:00 AM on August 3rd, 2020. The new free shikigami will be Youko, Hana, Karasu Tengu, Yamawaro, Oitsuki, Komatsu, Dodomeki, and Kyonshi Ani.

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

Of these shikigami, Dodomeki and Kyonshi Ani 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


As Itsumade’s performance is relatively weak compared to the other Ninja shikigami, we have suitably increased the damage of her Ability 2.

Ability 2: Invisible Edge

Adjusted damage from 80/135/190/245/300 (+75% extra Attack) to 80/140/200/260/320 (+85% extra Attack).


Onikiri is an all-rounder when compared to other Ninja shikigami, and he has high burst capability, high flexibility and high survivability. We have suitability weakened the Break of his Passive and the short-ranged damage of his Ability 2 for balancing.

Trait: Blade Vibration

Adjusted Break from 16% to 12%.

Ability 2: Light Vanquisher

Adjusted the damage of the first stage’s multiple blade gleams on hit from 50% to 35%.

Yuki Onna

Yuki Onna’s damage capability is currently slightly low compared to other Mage shikigami. We have increased the maximum damage of her Ability 2 and slightly adjusted the control duration of her Ability 1’s first stage to increase the hit rate of her chains.

Ability 1: Dusk Snows

Adjusted first stage’s Stun duration from 0.3 seconds to 0.35 seconds.

Ability 2: Marshmallow

Adjusted maximum damage from 120/180/240/300/360 (+70% Ability Power) to 120/185/250/315/380 (+80% Ability Power).


Satori currently has a relatively long animation when hitting bombs, causing their overall hit rate to be low. Also, she uses a lot of MP during the laning phase. We have suitably shortened the animation when hitting bombs, and reduced the MP cost of her Ability 2 and ultimate ability.

Ability 2: Pitch

Adjusted MP cost from 18/21/24/27/30 to 16/18/20/22/24.

Ultimate Ability: Home Run

Adjusted casting animation from 0.4 seconds to 0.32 seconds.

Adjusted MP cost from 15/20/25/30 to 12/15/18/21.

Ibaraki Doji

Ibaraki Doji’s Ability 3 can absorb large amounts of HP from multiple minions, causing him to be overly strong when laning in the early game. We will adjust the HP Steal efficiency of his Ability 3 toward non-shikigami targets, and suitably adjust his damage.

Ability 2: Fearless Fire

Adjusted damage from 25/45/65/85/105 (+70% Attack) to 30/50/70/90/110 (+60% Attack).

Ability 3: Six Realms of Hell

Removed effect: Restore a maximum of 80/100/120/140/160 HP for each damage.

Added effect: The conversion rate for minions is 50% of that for shikigami.

Adjusted damage level bonus from 3 to 4.

Chaos Realm

The Chaos Realm event has ended. This mode will now be available on Saturdays and Sundays again.
