November 17th, 2023 Update Patch Notes

The November 17th, 2023, Update sees new Ninja shikigami Sasori make his debut on the Heian-kyo battlefield.

New Shikigami: Sasori

Come, have a taste of my venom.

A silent gaze peers through the hidden corner, drawing curious beings near. A young girl sits among the remains of numerous scorpions. With an expressionless face, she softly says, “Come closer, and I shall ‘heal’ you of your worries.”

Trait: Scorpion Venom

Passive: Sasori’s bonus Attack Speed will convert into bonus Attack Damage. Every once in a while, Sasori’s next basic attack will be enhanced, dealing damage twice and increasing her Movement Speed.

Sasori’s basic attacks on-hit inflict 1 stack of Scorpion Venom on enemy Shikigami or Monster, which will deal damage over time. If an enemy unit has 3 stacks of Scorpion Venom, or an enemy affected by Scorpion Venom is Sealed, they will spread 1 stack of Scorpion Venom to all nearby enemy Shikigami and Monsters.

Ability 1: Painful Stab

Sasori unleashes a cross-shaped sting in the designated direction, dealing Physical Damage and inflicting Slow on enemies within the area. The enemy at the center of the area will get 1 stack of Scorpion Venom.

Ability 2: Veil of Mist

Sasori releases a poisonous mist in the designated direction. She gains increased Movement Speed and Invisibility while inside the mist. She loses her Invisibility when she uses basic attacks or abilities, and there is a delay before she gains Invisibility again.

Ability 3: Scorpion’s Sting

Sasori shoots poison darts in the designated direction, dealing damage to enemies along the path. If the attack hits an enemy Shikigami or Monster, the first target hit will have their Vision exposed, and Sasori’s basic attacks against this unit will be enhanced.

Enhanced Basic Attack: Increases attack range, greatly Slows the target, and grants Sasori a Shield.

Ultimate Ability: Venom of a Hundred Scorpions

Sasori charges at an enemy Shikigami affected by Scorpion Venom and deals damage to all enemies in the area affected by Scorpion Venom proportional to the target’s Scorpion Venom stacks.

Balance Adjustments


Hakuro’s current overall performance is not ideal, and her ability to protect herself is quite low. We slightly lowered her ultimate’s cooldown and enhanced the Knockback effect in hopes of giving Hakuro a better performance.
Ultimate Ability Non-Self:

Reduced cooldown from 90/80/70s to 70s.

Increased Knockback duration from 1s to 1/1.2/1.4s.


Under Normal Form, Orochi’s Ability 1 Evil God’s Gaze currently is too effective at clearing lanes. Orochi almost always gains an advantage over the lane during mid game, enabling him to help teammates in other lanes. As such, we adjusted the ability damage against Minions. Also, under True Form, Orochi’s Ability 2 Divine Force of Shadows has too great an influence on the tides of battle. The strength of this ability is much higher than the other two basic abilities. We wanted it to showcase Orochi’s capacity to dominate the battlefield in True Form, but not too greatly to overshadow the other abilities. As such, we retained this ability’s impact over matches, and reduced the control duration and damage. Currently, Orochi cannot actively end True Form. This causes instances where, after winning a team fight, Orochi becomes unable to press on until True Form ends. As such, we allowed his abilities under True Form to be able to deal small damage against turrets so that Orochi wouldn’t be left with nothing to do.

Normal Form – Ability 1: Evil God’s Gaze

Damage dealt to Minions reduced from 100%/110%/120%/130%/140% to 100%/107.5%/115%/122.5%/130%.

True Form – Ability 1: Venomous Tooth

This ability can now deal Magic Damage to buildings, but the damage is reduced to 60 (+35% Magic Damage) (+4.5*Current Level).

True Form – Ability 2: Divine Force of Shadows

Projectile flight speed increased from 900 to 1100.

Forced displacement duration reduced from 1.05s to 0.75s.

Collision damage reduced from 100/140/180/220/260 (+90% Ability Power) (+7.5*Current Level) to 100/140/180/220/260 (+40% Ability Power) (+5*Current Level).


In the early to mid-game, Hannya is too overpowering with long range and high damage providing economic advantages during the laning phase. We believe that Hannya’s current ability to get economic advantages is too much.

Therefore, we have reduced Hannya’s damage capability in the early to mid-game.

Ability 1: Heart of Jealousy

Damage reduced from 25/47.5/70/92.5/115 (+24%/27.5%/31%/34.5%/38% Attack) to 20/40/60/80/100 (+20%/24%/28%/32%/36% Attack).

Ranged Form – Ability 2: Ghoul Mask

Damage reduced from 20/55/90/125/160 (+75% Attack) to 15/45/75/105/135 (+75% Attack).

Kani Hime

After adjusting Amulet: Death to a primary Onmyodo, Kani Hime’s damage has been reduced. Also, the Samurai Shikigami gear adjustments have further reduced Kani Hime’s capabilities in the top lane. Therefore, we increased the base damage for her Ability 1 Conch Hammer and Ability 3 Crab Pounce!, in hopes of granting her a better chance during laning. Also, due to adjustments to the overall damage, Kani Hime is slightly lacking the ability to hold her ground during teamfights. After casting her ultimate Conch Maelstrom, we’d like Kani Hime to be able to engage in sustained combat. So we have introduced a mechanism where she gains Armor and Magic Resist after casting the ultimate, thereby improving Kani Hime’s survivability in team fights.

Ability 1: Conch Hammer

Damage increased from 70/90/110/130/150 (+120% Bonus Attack) (+12% Bonus Max HP) (+20*Current Level) to 80/105/130/155/180 (+120% Bonus Attack) (+12% Bonus Max HP) (+20*Current Level).

Ability 3: Crab Pounce!

Damage increased from 100/150/200/250/300 (+60% Bonus Attack) (+6% Bonus Max HP) to 120/170/220/270/320 (+60% Bonus Attack) (+6% Bonus Max HP).

Bonus damage from ground impact increased from 50/75/100/125/150 (+30% Bonus Attack) to 60/85/110/135/160 (+30% Bonus Attack).

Ultimate Ability: Conch Maelstrom

Upon landing, gain 30/50/70+10% Armor and 25/40/55+8% Magic Resist for 4s (cancelling or charging the ability for too long to the point of disorienting yourself shall render no bonuses!).


Yamakaze’s overall performance is too weak and especially underpowered when up against other Jungle Shikigami. As a Jungle Shikigami, it is difficult for Yamakaze to lead the game pace during the early game. Therefore, we adjusted his damage capabilities for the early game, in hopes of improving his performance on the battlefield.

Natural Passive: Violent

Damage increased from 5 (+25% Bonus Attack) (+10*Current Level) to 15 (+25% Bonus Attack) (+10*Current Level).

Ability 2: Wind

Damage from each hit increased from 40/80/120/160/200 (+55% Bonus Attack) to 60/100/140/180/220 (+55% Bonus Attack).

Reduced cooldown from 10s to 10/9.5/9/8.5/8s.

Ability 3: Slash

Damage increased from 40/60/80/100/120 (+35% Bonus Attack) to 60/80/100/120/140 (+40% Bonus Attack).


As a Jungle Shikigami, Mannendake is rather weak. His abilities deal too little damage in the early game. As such, we increased the base damage and damage coefficient against Monsters of his Ability 2 Bamboo: Penetrate and the base damage of his Ultimate Ability Bamboo Flurry in the early game. This should improve his chances while jungling in the early game.

Ability 2: Bamboo Penetrate

Damage increased from 25/60/95/130/165 (+70% Attack) to 30/65/100/135/170 (+70% Attack).

Increased the first enhanced damage from 35/85/135/185/235 (+100% Attack) to 40/90/140/190/240 (+100% Attack).

Increased the second enhanced damage from 45/110/175/240/305 (+130% Attack) to 50/115/180/245/310 (+130% Attack).

Increased the damage coefficient against Monsters from 1.3 to 1.4.

Ultimate Ability: Bamboo Flurry

Damage increased from 300/488/675 (+100% Bonus Attack) to 325/500/675 (+100% Bonus Attack).

Adjustments and Improvements

Fixed issues in certain situations where Moon Shadow: Blade Shatterer cannot correctly block ability damage.

Optimized ability charging icons to make ability charging progress clearer to see.

Fixed in-match issue where the wrong text was displayed when using Quick Signals to indicate insufficient energy for abilities.

Free Shikigami Lineup Adjustments

Onmyoji Arena will change the lineup of the limited-time free Shikigamis at 5:00 AM on 11/20. The new free Shikigamis will be Suzuka Gozen, Yamausagi, Tanuki, Yamawaro, Oitsuki, Kiyohime, Mannendake, and Kamaitachi.

Onmyoji who own the God of Fortune Month Pact will have the additional free Shikigamis, Hououga and Momo.

Of these shikigami, Kamaitachi has a difficulty of Hard. Onmyoji who have been in Heian-kyo for less than 7 days can’t use them in battle for free.
