NEW SHIKIGAMI AOBOZU
“Life is but a dream. Everything is empty.”
There are very few people who understand him, but he has never given up, instead using a different method to put his beliefs into action.
Aobozu is a shikigami who can be played in two ways. When leveling up his ultimate ability, you can choose Buddha’s Heart Form or Demonbane Form.
After choosing Buddha’s Heart Form, Aobozu will increase his Zen and his ability to take damage. Ability 1: Meditation will grant a more obvious increase on the damage and effects on other abilities.
After choosing Demonbane Form, Aobozu will convert Zen to Corruption, increasing his output and burst power at the same time.
In accordance with choosing the different ways, Aobozu’s ultimate ability will provide strong control when he chooses Buddha’s Heart Form, and strong finishing ability when he chooses Demonbane Form.
Trait: Buddha’s Image
Passive effect: If Aobozu takes damage greater than the designated value in a certain amount of time, all control effects are removed from him.
Ability 1: Meditation
Aobozu chants Buddhist scripture, continuously recovering Zen. During this time, he receives a damage reduction effect. When the chanting ends or when he uses this ability a second time, he deals damage to surrounding enemies and adds another damage reduction effect to himself.
Buddha’s Heart Form: Increases speed at which Zen is gained.
Demonbane Form: Continuously recovers Corruption. Using other abilities during this period will end accumulation and deal damage. After an ability is used, he will gain a Haste effect.
Ability 2: Divine Greatness
Aobozu waves his staff in the designated direction, dealing damage and Slow to enemies within range. Also adds a Buddha’s Heart mark. When this mark stacks 2 times, Aobozu will automatically trigger the mark upon dealing damage to the target, dealing additional damage and restoring HP to himself.
Buddha’s Heart Form: When Zen exceeds 125, enemies hit by this ability will directly gain the No. 2 stack of Buddha’s Heart mark.
Demonbane Form: Increases the damage dealt by this ability and decreases cooldown time.
Ability 3: Fortification
Aobozu charges in the designated direction, dealing damage to enemies along the way. If he hits an enemy shikigami, he will stop charging and fling the enemy behind him.
Buddha’s Heart Form: Every point of Zen increases charge distance and knockup time.
Demonbane Form: Increases damage dealt by this ability and significantly decreases cooldown time. Changes fling effect to knockup effect.
Ultimate Ability: Everything is Empty
Passive trigger: The first time Aobozu learns this ability, he must choose between Buddha’s Heart Form and Demonbane Form.
Buddha’s Heart Form: Aobozu’s upper Zen limit will be increased from 100 to 150.
Demonbane Form: Aobozu’s Zen will be changed to Corruption. Corruption will not decrease over time; using Divine Greatness and Fortification will consume Corruption.
Buddha’s Heart Form: Aobozu summons a magic circle in the designated area, dealing magic damage to enemies within range. This also inflicts Stun on targets in the magic circle’s center and a Slow effect on targets at the outer edge.
Demonbane Form: Aobozu jumps to the designated area, dealing physical damage to enemies within range. If this ability manages to KO an enemy shikigami, then it will immediately and fully restore Corruption and refresh this ability.
Aobozu will first be available during this week’s Shikigami Brawl.
