July 3rd 2020 Update Patch Notes

The Onmyoji Arena July 3rd 2020 Update sees Kumamon Crossover Events is available for a limited time!

Free Shikigami Lineup Adjustments

Onmyoji Arena will change the lineup of the limited-time free shikigami at 5:00 AM on July 6th, 2020. The new free shikigami will be Chin, Momo, Vampira, Ryomen, Inugami, Menreiki, Lord Arakawa, Shiro, Suzuka Gozen, and Ootengu.

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

Yuki Mechanics Adjustments

We have discovered that in matches, Yuki will often use Ability 1: Snow Weaver or Ability 2: Icebreak’s second stage in order to freeze enemies. We believe that Yuki’s original chain order will make controls tedious. Additionally, Ability 2: Icebreak’s first stage appears to be a bit uninteresting, making it an ability that players force themselves to use in order to use the second stage, and Ability 1: Snow Weaver serves as a passive ability taking up a controllable ability’s slot. This also reduces Yuki players’ freedom of control.

Because of this, we have redesigned Yuki’s abilities. The original Ability 1: Snow Weaver has been turned into a trait, and the effects of the original Ability 2: Icebreak’s two stages have been split into Ability 1 and 2. At the same time, we have made the original trait Snow Chaser a part of Ability 1. Following the restructuring, Yuki can use Ability 1 and 2 to chain. We hope that these changes will enhance Yuki’s maneuverability and make him more flexible in a variety of combat environments.

Trait: Snow Chaser

Passive effect: When Yuki’s ability or basic attack deals damage to enemy shikigami or monsters, it will add a Frost stack. When a single target has 4 stacks of Frost, they will be frozen. For a period of time after a target has been frozen, Yuki will be unable to inflict stacks of Frost on shikigami or monsters.

Yuki will mark the frozen enemy shikigami around himself for a period of time. When Yuki uses basic attacks on the frozen shikigami, he will jump towards the target and deal magic damage to the target.

Ability 1: Icebreak

Passive trigger: At regular intervals, Yuki’s next basic attack will make him dash for a short distance towards the target, dealing physical damage to all enemies within a rectangular range. Active effect: Yuki dashes in a designated direction, dealing physical damage to enemies or the way.

Ability 2: Snow Weaver

Yuki deals physical damage and freezes enemies within a fan-shaped area in front of him.

Shikigami Adjustments

Dai Shimei

Because of the stack limit, Dai Shimei’s ultimate ability, Forbidden Tome – Death Sentence, often cannot be cast in the desired situations. Because of this, we have removed this ability’s casting condition, making it so that Dai Shimei can more freely select suitable situations to use his ultimate ability. At the same time, we have shifted the shield break effect of Dai Shimei’s Ability 3: Young Death to Forbidden Tome – Death Sentence, making the time between the opportunity to cast Dai Shimei’s ultimate ability and enemies’ opportunity to cast shield-type abilities more gamified.

Ability 3: Young Death’s buff has been converted to a shield effect, boosting Dai Shimei’s survivability in conflicts.

Following the adjustment, the trait No Mistakes will not be able to inflict Falsehood on monsters other than Orochi and Kraken in order to limit Dai Shimei’s jungling efficiency in killing both monsters at the same time.

Ability 1: Dark Cloud

Dai Shimei will not be able to inflict Falsehood on monsters other than Orochi and Kraken.

Adjusted damage level bonus from 10 to 14.

Ability 3: Young Death

Removed: Striking enemies with Falsehood will deduct their Shield and slow them.

New: Enemies and minions hit by this ability will be slowed; hitting enemies with Falsehood will grant Dai Shimei a shield.

Ultimate Ability: Forbidden Tome – Death Sentence

Removed: Falsehood must be triggered 2 times in order to cast this ability.

New: Shield will be deducted from targets in range while casting, and they will be slowed for a short period of time.

Adjusted base damage from 45/90/135 to 45/100/155.


We have suitably weakened Yasha’s DPS capability in order to control his strength.

Ability 1: Shura

Adjusted Attack bonus from 50% to 45%.

Adjusted mark damage from 65/82.5/100/117.5/135 (+55% extra Attack) to 65/80/95/110/125 (+45% extra Attack).

Ultimate Ability: Underworld Sea

Adjusted the long spear’s extra Attack bonus from 120% to 100%.


Currently, Kanko’s build is mainly focused on enhancing ability damage. His overall strength in the early game is more powerful than that of traditional Marksman builds, which are focused on physical damage, but this build is relatively weak in the mid and late game, causing Kanko to be weaker than other Marksman-type shikigami in the late game. We have added a Crit bonus to Kanko’s ultimate ability and made suitable adjustments to the damage of his other abilities.

Ability 1: Fire Bomb

Adjusted damage from 44/88/132/176/220 (+40/50/60/70/80% Attack) to 40/80/120/160/200 (+40/45/50/55/60% Attack).

Ability 2: Bamboo Missiles

Adjusted damage from 14/48/82/116/150 (+40/45/50/55/60% Attack) to 10/45/80/115/150 (+30/37.5/45/52.5/60% Attack).

Ultimate Ability: Bamboo Blast

New: This ability can crit, dealing 135% damage when a critical hit is triggered. Adjusted damage from 50/125/200 (+37.5% Attack) to 50/110/170 (+40% Attack).

Lord Arakawa

Lord Arakawa has relatively high healing in the mid and late game, often resulting in other shikigami not being able to effectively deal damage to Lord Arakawa in one-on-one combat. We have suitably reduced the damage and healing capability of his Ability 3.

Ability 3: Flow Force

Adjusted MP cost from 30/40/50/60/70 to 30/42/55/67/80.

Adjusted damage from 55/67.5/80/92.5/105 (+22.5% Ability Power) to 55/65/75/85/95 (+24% Ability Power).

Adjusted base lost HP regen from 0.1/0.2/0.3/0.4/0.5% to 0.11/0.195/0.28/0.365/0.45%.

Fixed an issue in which the water balls would deal damage to the target twice under some circumstances.

Item Adjustments

Currently, some items have a higher cost performance than others. We have made suitable adjustments to the cost performance of some of those items.

Shadow Blade

Adjusted Attack from 70 to 65. Adjusted Armor Penetration from 15 to 10.

Omoikane’s Bow

Adjusted passive damage from +50% Attack to +35% Attack. Adjusted price from 2,000 coins to 2,100 coins.

Daruma Blessing

Daruma Blessing has new goods!

Miketsu’s royal skin: Oath: Lightchaser, Higanbana’s royal skin: Underworld Splendor, and Yuki’s royal skin: Majestic Blade, are available to redeem for a limited time!

The Daruma Blessing event’s prize pool has been expanded to include non-time-limited skins released before 1/3/2020. We have also refreshed and reset the total number of item redemptions and total draw attempts.
