A certain degree of familiarity and competence is currently expected of players in order to get a good aim with the second-stage horizontal slash in Takiyasha Hime’s Ability 2: Mountain Fog. The noticeable lag at the end of her displacement has also affected the casting experience of this ability. That’s why we’ve simplified the aiming logic and optimized control of her Ability 2 to offer fans of Takiyasha Hime a better experience when using her in battle.
To highlight Takiyasha Hime’s positioning as a Samurai shikigami, we have also added a survivability mechanic in her abilities and adjusted some of her ability value bonuses by increasing the significance of her Attack Damage stat.
Natural Passive: Moon Slash
Reaching 5 stacks of New Moon Blessing no longer offers continuous HP Regen. It now grants an increased Attack Damage bonus and a certain proportion of Life Steal.
Ability 2: Mountain Fog
Adjusted the second-stage horizontal slash’s enemy-selection logic such that Takiyasha Hime now performs a horizontal slash at the first enemy unit in the direction of the left joystick after charging.
Optimized control of the ability and reduced the lag at the end of her displacement.
Ability 3: Sleepless Moonrise
New: Triggering the Lunar mark grants Takiyasha Hime an additional shield. Triggering marks on non-shikigami units reduces the Shield value.
Ultimate Ability: Shadowless Sundown
Invade: Adjusted the enhanced effect during this period and removed the Bonus Attack Damage. New effect: Part of the damage dealt during this period will be converted into true damage.
Immovable: The Shield generated when the ability hits an enemy shikigami strengthens as her Attack Damage increases. Reduced Max HP bonus.
Kainin’s combat capabilities performed below expectations after the previous adjustments. That’s why we will be increasing his damage, as well as his ability to resist enemies in the jungle and jungling speed, to make him stronger.
Ability 1: Flying Leaves
Increased base damage from 40/65/90/115/140 to 60/85/110/135/160.
Ability 2: Shadow Strike
Increased base damage from 35/50/65/80/95 to 35/57.5/80/102.5/125.
Increased base damage against monsters and in the outer circle from 70/100/130/160/190 to 70/115/160/205/250.
Futakuchi’s combat capabilities are currently weaker than the other Marksman shikigami. That’s why we’ve enhanced her passive to boost her ability to deal burst damage in the game.
Natural Passive: Gonna Blow
Increased damage per stack from (+18% (+1%*level) Attack) to 8 (+3*level) (+18% (+1%*level) Attack).
Tanuki is currently mainly used in the top lane, but unlike other Tank shikigami, he is unable to pose a threat to enemy DPS. That’s why we’ve adjusted his damage and control abilities so that he now not only deals more damage to enemy DPS in teamfights but also serves as a Support shikigami.
Natural Trait: Wine Power
Increased attack range from 475 to 550.
Increased Slow from 45% to 50%.
Ability 1: Drunken Stupor
Reduced the resistance increase when under the effect of Century Brew from 3 times to 2.5 times.
Ability 2: Fiery Moonshine
Adjusted damage from 60/95/130/165/200 (+40% of Ability Power) (+6%/7%/8%/9%/10% of target’s Max HP) to 70/120/170/220/270 (+40% of Ability Power) (+25*current level).
Adjusted damage when under the effect of Century Brew from 5/10/15/20/25 (+10% of Ability Power) (+1.2%/1.4%/1.6%/1.8%/2% of target’s Max HP) to 5/15/25/35/45 (+10% of Ability Power) (+10*current level).
Both the Crit bonuses and Attack Speed bonuses from Akaname’s abilities are rather low, resulting in him having limited build options. We hope to improve this with the adjustments. However, to balance the impact of these changes, we will also be reducing Akaname’s support abilities.
Ability 1: Sweeping Time
HP restored is no longer affected by the bonus from Dirt.
HP restored by this ability will be increased as Crit Rate increases, up to a maximum increase of 100%.
Ultimate Ability: Nice and Clean
Shield is no longer affected by the bonus from Dirt.
This ability’s Shield will be increased as Crit Rate increases, up to a maximum increase of 60%.
Increased Attack Speed buff by 25%.
In addition to the previous adjustments made to Kyuumei Neko causing her to perform below expectations, the changes to her passive have also allowed opponents to harass her more easily in teamfights now. That’s why we’ve increased Kyuumei Neko’s damage to boost her ability to resist enemies in the jungle and her jungling speed, as well as optimized the reduction mechanic of her passive.
Natural Passive: Nine Lives
Stacks will now reduce at a speed of one stack per second after exceeding the duration.
Ability 2: Razor Claws
Increased 1st and 2nd stage base damage from 25/45/65/85/105 to 40/57.5/75/92.5/110.
Increased 3rd stage base damage from 50/90/130/170/210 to 80/115/150/185/220.
Ability 3: Pounce
Increased displacement speed from 1,200 to 1,600.
Increased displacement speed under the Explosive Fur state from 1,400 to 1,800.
Zashiki has become too weak after her previous adjustments. To bring her performance back to standard, we will be making partial readjustments to her Ability 1.
Ability 1: Indoor Cleansing
Increased Ability 1 base damage from 50/75/100/125/150 to 60/90/120/150/180.
Increased Ability Power bonus from 25% to 30%.
Increased level bonus from 10 to 12.
Kamimai currently deals too much damage with her ability combo. To balance her overall strength, we will be reducing the damage dealt by some of her abilities.
Passive: Falling Paper
Adjusted the extra Bonus Attack Damage for damage dealt when marks reach 3 stacks from 80% to 60%.
Ability 1: Paper Blade
Adjusted damage from 40/95/150/205/260 (+80% extra Attack) (+10% of target’s lost HP) to 30/80/130/180/230 (+60% extra Attack) (+8% of target’s lost HP).
As Tesso’s performance in the late game is relatively weak, we will be enhancing some of his abilities to provide fans of Tesso with a better experience when using him.
Ability 2: Plentiful Fortunes
Adjusted Break from 5%/11.25%/17.5%/23.75%/30% to 5%/12.5%/20%/27.5%/35%.
Ultimate Ability: Insurance Policy
Increased the upper limit of the coin release speed while the ability is being cast.
Increased the coin release speed increase for every 15 pieces of Incense Money gained.
In addition to being rather weak overall, the casting experience for Momo’s Ultimate Ability: Revival Blossom is also poor. That’s why we’ve optimized the casting experience of her Ultimate Ability.
Ultimate Ability: Revival Blossom
Changed the blossom seal generation time from 0/2/4 seconds to forming three blossom seals immediately upon casting.
Free Shikigami Lineup Adjustments
We will change the lineup of the limited-time free shikigami at 5:00 AM on May 8th, 2023. The new free shikigami will be Miketsu, Akaname, Shuten Doji, Furi, Kingyo, Kidomaru, Yumekui, and Kosodenote.
Onmyoji who own the God of Fortune Month Pact will have the additional free shikigami, Ootakemaru and Hako Shoujo.
Of these shikigami, Kosodenote has a difficulty of Hard. Onmyoji who have been in Heian-kyo for less than 7 days can’t use her in battle for free.
