September 18th 2020 Update Patch Notes

The Onmyoji Arena September 18th 2020 Update sees new shikigami Hako Shoujo arrives and OPL skins Wings of Glory and Brilliant Haze returns.

Free Shikigami Lineup Adjustments

Onmyoji Arena will change the lineup of the limited-time free shikigami at 5:00 AM on September 21. The new free shikigami will be Youko, Kusa, Karasu Tengu, Yamawaro, Oitsuki, Hangan, Satori, and Ittan-momen.

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

Of these shikigami, Satori and Ittan-momen have a difficulty of Extreme. Onmyoji who have been in Heian-kyo for less than 7 days can’t use them in battle for free.

New Shikigami Hako Shoujo

“My box is filled with many beautiful treasures.”

Hako Shoujo is a spirit born to treasure and to guard, hence we have designed her abilities around collecting and protecting.

Use Ability 1 to throw a rare pearl that explodes after some time to add a Glittering mark to enemies hit. Ally shikigami can help Hako Shoujo collect these marks when they attack the target with basic attacks, and restore their HP.

In addition, Hako Shoujo will charm her target and cause them to enter the Infatuated state some time after hitting them with her Ability 2: Glittering Shield. She can then use her ultimate ability to collect the enemy into her box. As she admires her collection, maybe she’s admiring you as well.

Trait: Cherish

Passive Effect: When Hako Shoujo and ally shikigami nearby actively use abilities, the caster will gain a shield.

This effect has a separate cooldown for each shikigami.

Ability 1: Glittering Light

Hako Shoujo releases a pearl toward the designated position, which flies to its final destination and explodes after a certain period of time, dealing magic damage to enemies within range and adding a Glittering mark to enemy shikigami hit.

If an ally shikigami hits an enemy with a Glittering mark with a basic attack, they will restore HP. The same Glittering mark can only be triggered by each shikigami once.

Ability 2: Glittering Shield

Hako Shoujo throws a feather in the designated direction, linking herself and the first enemy shikigami hit. When linked, she deals continuous magic damage and inflicts a Slow effect. If the link is maintained for a certain period of time, the target is charmed, upon which they will enter the Infatuated state.

Ability 3: Retrace

Hako Shoujo uses her treasure box to record her own life, gaining a Movement Speed bonus. If she is not sealed for some time, she will restore some of the HP lost during this time.

Ultimate Ability: Treasure Box

Hako Shoujo can collect one ally or one enemy shikigami in the Infatuated state into her box before releasing them in the designated direction after a certain period of time or by casting the ability again. If an enemy shikigami is collected, she deals magic damage to them upon release. If an ally is collected, she grants them a shield upon release.

Hako Shoujo will first be available during this week’s Shikigami Brawl.

Shikigami Adjustments


Currently, Tanuki is frequently at a certain disadvantage when laning, so we have suitably enhanced his Ability 2: Fiery Moonshine.

Ability 2: Fiery Moonshine

Adjusted cast range from 450 yards to 480 yards.

Adjusted base damage from 40/70/100/130/160 to 60/95/130/165/200.


Aobozu’s strength has also been affected by the previous fix to the range of fan-shaped casts. As compensation, we have slightly increased the cast range of his Ability 2: Divine Greatness.

Ability 2: Divine Greatness

Adjusted cast range from 500 yards to 530 yards.


We have added a certain amount of Break to Tesso’s Ability 2: Plentiful Fortunes, in hopes that he will be less weak when facing off against established tanks in the late game.

Ability 2: Plentiful Fortunes

New: Additional 5/10/15/20/25% Break effect to enemies on hit.


Currently, in most matches, Hiyoribou has had slightly better performance during the laning phase. Hence, we have reduced her damage dealt during this phase.

Ultimate Ability: Ominous Blade

Adjusted damage of each slash from 100/220/340 (+50% Attack) to 100/200/300 (+50% Attack).
