New Season Starts

Season 19 will start after the maintenance on October 14th. Please check the detailed info below:

Players’ initial tier in Season 19 will be based on their final tier in Season 18 according to the season rules.

Players whose highest tier in Season 18 reached Gold or above will get the avatar frame for the corresponding tier. But the Superstar Avatar Frame will only be granted to players who are still in the Superstar tier at the end of Season 18.

After Season 19 starts, players who participated in at least 60 5v5 matches or 80 Fun Mode matches, and had an average punishment (punished matches / total matches) of less than 0.025/match in Season 18 will be granted a Season 18 exclusive skin for Kyonshi Ani, Art of War: Perilous Battlefield. During Season 19, players who meet the requirements for claiming a rank skin can claim the Season 19 exclusive rank skin for Kosodenote, Virtue of War: Sunlight Aria. When Season 20 starts, players who meet the requirements will be able to claim the Season 19 exclusive skin for Ittan-momen, Art of War: Blossoming Frost.

Balance Adjustments

Tesso

As Tesso is rather weak in the late game, we have slightly enhanced his late-game performance.

Ability 2: Plentiful Fortunes

Increased Break growth from 5%/10%/15%/20%/25% to 5%/11.25%/17.5%/23.75%/30%.

Ultimate Ability: Insurance Policy

Increased damage per coin from 35/45/55 (+50% of Attack) to 35/50/65 (+50% of Attack).

Increased the number of coins released from 5 to 5/6/7 and coin limit from 12 to 12/13/14. Also increased Attack Speed bonus from 2 to 4 to 2.5 to 4.

Senhime

We have slightly reduced Senhime’s laning strength and fixed the issue where the effective range of her Ability 1 is larger than the one indicated by its special effect.

Ability 1: Thousand Tides

Fixed the issue where the actual damage range is larger than the one indicated by the special effect.

Reduced base damage from 70/105/140/175/210 to 60/90/120/150/180.

Ability 3: Tide of Eternity

Adjusted Speed Reduction from 35% to 20%/22.5%/25%/27.5%/30%.

Shiranui

As Shiranui currently has rather poor survivability, we have slightly increased her Armor growth and damage reduction.

Stats

Increased Armor growth from 6.5 to 7.8.

Increased HP growth from 172 to 176.

Ability 3: Midnight Flutter

Increased damage reduction during flight from 20%/24%/28%/32%/36% to 20%/26%/32%/38%/44%.

Taishakuten

Natural Passive: King’s Feast

Reduced Ability Power bonus from 90% to 80%.

Reduced damage to surrounding targets from 50% to 35%.

Ability 1: Celestial Judgment

Reduced damage from 120/175/230/285/340 (+60% Ability Power) to 100/150/200/250/300 (+55% Ability Power).

Ability 3: Ten Great Virtues

Increased cooldown from 16/15.5/15/14.5/14 seconds to 18/17.5/17/16.5/16 seconds.

Optimizations and Adjustments

Updated the style of in-match indicators.

Highlight Battle Results Display

Lowered the requirements for triggering Highlight Battle Results and optimized interaction between players.

Added a function for players to post their Province Ranking at the shikigami selection screen.

The Highlight Battle Results Display function is currently only available in banning mode in Ranked Matches, but it will be progressively implemented in other modes in the future.

Adjustments to Ranked Match

We will make some adjustments to the ban rules in Ranked Matches. Instead of taking turns banning two shikigami, both parties will now simultaneously ban three shikigami. We hope that by adjusting the ban rules, we can increase the diversity of shikigami that are banned. After the adjustments, more players will have the opportunity to ban shikigami.

The timing for pre-selection mode in Ranked Matches will also be adjusted to 12:00 PM to 12:00 AM daily.

(Overseas only) As a result of the rule changes, the requirements for Ranked Matches for tiers Elite or higher will increase from 14 to 16 shikigami. We will also add a Ranked Match Assistance Pact Pack to this season’s Elite rewards to help you adapt to the Ranked Match Ban rules more readily. Those who have reached Elite in the Tier History for this season will be sent their rewards via mail.

Mechanics Adjustments

Jorogumo

As Jorogumo is currently seldom played and has a poor win rate, we have made her stronger. We have also optimized her current mechanics and usage issues so that she can perform better in teamfights and when she pursues enemies.

Trait: Spider Queen

Increased damage dealt by tarantula servants.

Ability 2: Web Coil

Jorogumo shoots 4 Spider Webs one by one in the designated direction. Ability 2 will not build up anymore.

Ability 3: Spider Symbol

Using Venom Claw on marked targets increases displacement distance and deals bonus damage. Basic attacks will increase the mark’s duration. Spider Symbol enters cooldown after the mark disappears.

Ultimate Ability: Arachnid Swarm

Tarantulas will deal more damage after this ability is used. When they participate in kills, Jorogumo will gain 3 poisonous tarantulas immediately.

Higanbana

Although multiple seas of flowers are currently allowed to coexist, the space is not only underutilized but also obstructs vision on the battlefield for both teams. Thus, we have limited the number of seas of flowers that can coexist at any time. As compensation, we have reduced the regeneration cooldown for each layer of Blood-soaked Flowers and enhanced Higanbana’s ultimate ability.

Ability 3: Blood-soaked Flowers

Only 1 sea of flowers can exist on the current battlefield. Cooldown for each layer of Blood-soaked Flowers is reduced.

Ultimate Ability: Underworld Flowers

The field of flowers will inflict Slow on shikigami that enter and mark them with Flower Seals.

Free Shikigami Lineup Bulletin

We will change the lineup of the limited-time free shikigami at 5:00 AM on 10/17. The new free shikigami will be Komatsu, Enmusubi, Vampira, Kuro Mujou, Jorogumo, Onikiri, Tamamonomae, and Kyonshi Ani.

Onmyoji who own the God of Fortune Month Pact will have the additional free shikigami, Hangan and Yoto Hime.

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