March 10th, 2023 Update Patch Notes
The Onmyoji Arena March 10th 2023 Update sees Kamimai’s Ability 1 has been adjusted the switching mechanic.
The special mechanic that switches between the two forms of Kamimai’s Ability 1 makes it difficult to control her. Moreover, both Paper Fan and Paper Blade in Ability 1 have independent cooldowns, making it difficult to differentiate the cooldown status of each form.
That’s why we’ve adjusted the switching mechanic in Kamimai’s Ability 1 so that its initial cast is fixed in the ranged Paper Fan form, switching into the melee Paper Blade form only after Paper Fan is cast. Once Paper Blade is cast or when the cooldown of the Paper Fan form ends, Ability 1 will automatically switch to the Paper Fan form.
Ability 1: Paper Fan
Kamimai throws her paper fan, dealing damage and inflicting a Slow effect on the first target hit and the enemies behind them. This ability will automatically switch to Paper Blade after casting.
Ability 1: Paper Blade
Kamimai cuts nearby enemies with a paper blade, dealing physical damage. This ability can only be cast when there are enemy units around Kamimai. After Paper Blade has been cast or when the cooldown of Paper Fan has ended, the ability will automatically switch to Paper Fan.
The casting animation duration of Yoh Asakura’s Trait: Amida-Style: Halo Blade shortens with increases in Attack Speed, creating a huge difference in the ability’s performance between matches in the early and late game. We’ve reduced the casting animation duration of Yoh Asakura’s Amida-Style: Halo Blade and removed the mechanic where animation duration shortens with Attack Speed increases. We’ve also adjusted Amida-Style: Halo Blade’s damage values in both the early and late game to balance out his performance throughout the game. We hope fans of Yoh Asakura can master the right timing when casting Amida-Style: Halo Blade, thereby increasing the ability’s accuracy in the early game.
The cooldown of Ability 2: Shaman Shield has also been reduced to improve the rate at which Yoh Asakura deals damage.
Trait: Amida-Style: Halo Blade
Reduced passive animation duration from 0.65 seconds to 0.25 seconds. Animation duration is no longer dependent on Attack Speed.
Adjusted the damage from (+140% Attack) (+4% (+0.6*current level) target’s Max HP) to (+140% Attack) (+2% (+0.8*current level) target’s Max HP).
Ability 2: Shaman Shield
Reduced cooldown from 16 seconds to 14 seconds.
Ability 3: Air Slash
Optimized the casting indicator so that it now shows the damage range from the ground smash at the end of the displacement.
Righteous Jade Echo
Evil Suppression Subdue offers less value than Ice Subdue and Avalanche Subdue. We’ve adjusted its damage values in hopes that players will also consider it as an option.
Evil Suppression Subdue: Increased each instance of true damage from 8 (+3*current level) to 12 (+4*current level).
Demon Encounter Balance Adjustments
Inugami: Reduced the ratio of damage immunity from 0.15/0.225/0.3 to 0.1/0.15/0.2 while Ultimate Ability: Burning Rage is active.
Ubume: Reduced the slash damage of Ultimate Ability: Hack and Slash from 100/170/240 (+30% extra Attack) to 70/130/190 (+25% extra Attack). Reduced the hack damage of Hack and Slash from 100/170/240 (+30% extra Attack) to 70/130/190 (+25% extra Attack).
Hone Onna: Increased the damage of Ultimate Ability: Resentment from 180/340/500 (+100% extra Attack) to 240/450/660 (+130% extra Attack). Increased the maximum base damage multiplier from 1.5 times to 2 times.
Satori: Reduced the charge time of Club Bomb from 8.7/7.4/6.1/4.8/3.5 seconds to 5/4.5/4/3.5/3 seconds.
