Balance Adjustments


Of all the Marksman shikigami, Kikyo is too weak in the early game, so we have increased the damage output of Ability 1 in the early game and the casting frequency of Ability 2, in the hope that it will enable her to better endure this vulnerable period.

Ability 1: Soul Collector

Increased base physical damage from 15/20/25/30/35 to 20/30/40/50/60.

Increased Attack Speed from 25/30/35/40/45% to 33/36/39/42/45%.

Ability 2: Sacred Arrow

Reduced cooldown from 12/11/10/9/8 seconds to 9/8.5/8/7.5/7 seconds.


We have slightly increased Kamimai’s Ability 1 cooldown to control her jungling speed in the early game.

Ability 1: Paper Blade

Increased cooldown from 7 seconds to 8.2/7.9/7.6/7.3/7 seconds.


Kuro is relatively weak in battle, so we will increase his base HP Regen and Ability 2 base damage to make him better at laning. We will also increase his Ability 3 control duration and damage reduction duration, in the hope that it will allow him to perform better in teamfights.

Base Stats

Increased base HP Regen from 14 to 16.

Ability 2: Scythe of Punishment

Increased base damage from 50/77.5/105/132.5/160 to 70/100/130/160/190.

Ability 3: Battle Cry

Increased control duration from 0.8/0.9/1/1.1/1.2 seconds to 1/1.075/1.15/1.225/1.3 seconds.

Increased damage reduction duration from 2 seconds to 3.5 seconds.


We want to slightly increase Menreiki’s Ability 3 damage growth to increase her single-target damage.

Ability 3: Forbidden Face

Increased damage from 30/40/50/60/70 (+15% Ability Power) to 30/45/60/75/90 (+20% Ability Power)


Kiyohime is often at an economic and level disadvantage in the mid game, so we will increase her HP growth and Ability 3 damage growth.

Base Stats

Increased HP growth from 148 to 160.

Ability 3: Sacrificial Fire

Increased base damage from 40/62.5/85/107.5/130 to 40/70/100/130/160.

Yata no Kagami

We hoped that Yata no Kagami could be a relatively cost-effective survival-oriented item in the mid and late game. However, it emerged that shikigami such as Aobozu were able to make large gains in the early game. Therefore, we have adjusted Yata no Kagami’s stats to balance its early game gains.

Base Stats

Adjusted 1,500 HP to 700+20% base HP.

Optimizations and Adjustments

Added customization to nickname frames. Nickname frame items can now be changed in Prepare – Customize.
