September 28th, 2023 Update Patch Notes

The September 28th, 2023 Update sees new Mage shikigami Orochi make his debut on the Heian-kyo battlefield.

New Shikigami


Do you crave for this power as well?

Orochi is an incredibly powerful Serpent God from Takamagahara. He was sealed away in Hazama, between the Yin and Yang realms. When he broke free from his cell and arrived in Heian-kyo, chaos and panic ran rampant.

Trait: Shadow of the Serpent God

The Serpent Priestess will not attack nor inflict debuffs on Orochi. When Orochi is near the Serpent Priestess, he can guide to deal true damage over time to Serpent Priestess. If Orochi helps to seal Serpent Priestess, he will gain huge amounts of Tainted Energy.

Ability 1: Evil God’s Gaze / Venomous Tooth

Evil God’s Gaze:

Orochi commands the Serpent Demon to glare at the designated direction. The first enemy target to be spotted and all enemies nearby will take magic damage over time. While commanding, Orochi’s movement speed is reduced, but he can change the Serpent Demon’s direction. Orochi can cancel his command at any time. While the ability is active, Orochi can cast the ability again to command the Serpent Demon’s gaze.

Venomous Tooth:

Orochi lunges forward and tears, dealing magic damage to enemies within range.

Ability 2: Serpent’s Embrace / Divine Force of Shadows

Serpent’s Embrace:

Orochi summons a Serpent Demon that rushes in the designated direction and stops when it hits the first enemy Shikigami. The Serpent Demon inflicts magic damage and Immobilize to all enemies along the path, and will remain on the first target hit for a while. After a delay, Orochi will collect the Serpent Demon’s power and recover HP and Energy based on damage dealt to the target while the Serpent Demon exists.

Divine Force of Shadows:

Orochi continues to drain the specified area, inflicting Slow and magic damage over time to enemies within range.

At the end of the specified area, open a demonic portal that continues to move towards Orochi. The portal will knockback and deal magic damage to all enemies that come in contact.

Ability 3: Suppression of Evil / Soul Shatter

Suppression of Evil: Orochi summons the Serpent God’s Might, which takes shape after a brief delay. When enemies approach, the Serpent God’s Might explodes, dealing magic damage to nearby enemies and inflicting Slow. Then, the Serpent Demon emerges from the Tainted Energy to attack nearby enemies.

Soul Shatter: Orochi rushes towards the specified direction, knocking aside enemies along the path, dealing magic damage.

Ultimate Ability: Devouring Hazama

Orochi summons a Hazama pathway and arrives in Heian-kyo, knocking back nearby enemies and dealing magic damage. While in this state, Orochi is unable to conceal himself in grass. This state lasts a maximum of 20 seconds, granting Orochi immunity to all control effects, reducing his movement speed, and providing him with independent HP, Armor, and Magic Resist. Periodically, Orochi releases a toxic venom towards up to three nearby enemies. After a short delay, the venom inflicts magical damage to enemies within the affected area. Once the state ends or Orochi’s HP drops to 0, he will return to Hazama.

Passive: Orochi slowly gathers Tainted Energy. Abilities that hit enemy Shikigami and helping to seal Large Monsters will also provide Orochi with bonus Tainted Energy. When Tainted Energy is full, Orochi can use his Ultimate Ability.
