Onmyoji Arena Tips and Tricks – How to Play as Kuro, The Taunting Tanker

Based on the review of Onmyoji Arena. Today, we are going to give you a review about a character on the game called Kuro.

Kuro is a tank type Shikigami that has a skill to taunt its enemy. He is really small but can really take a hit in the game, and he is one of the most used Tanks in the game.

As a shikigami, Kuro is very annoying to dealt with, mainly because of his knockback second skill, his annoying taunt, and lastly his ultimate that can be use for running away, or simply chasing down the enemies. He is not that hard to master but also not that easy to use.

His skill sets are:

Game Preparation


1. Vaisravana Drum (Main Item)
Your main tank item and damage item, it is useful for its regen, HP +armor
but the reason to take this item is the Passive that can be useful for laning and kiling the enemies.
Vaisravana drum passives is to deal damage around your enemies by level.
Which is useful for more damage
2. Hagakure Boots  (Main Roaming Item)
If you think that tank doesn’t need to roam, then you are wrong!
Tank needs to roam, especially if you can crowd control in AOE.
Kuro taunts is so useful that it can change the flow of the match
3. Sessho Seki Do  (Main Shielding item)
If for some reason you are one of the tank in the game then you might want to use an the sessho seki do +150 armor
plus the passive and the damage reflection and shield is also good.
It will help you survive more war.
4. Ninth Heaven Wing (Main armor)
Ninth Heaven Wing is one of the best Magic resist item that you can get in the game.
The more you get hit by magic, the more magic resist you will get. So remember that!

The next item that you might want to take is the Raja Warhammer so that you will be able to be immune at cc. Another one is the Hoko do or Lavish red robe depending on your enemies. If you are winning, just try another item like Demon Mask.


For the Onmyodo, i recommend you to use this set of item although you might want to change the soul ward to another one. I use soul ward because of my team mates that use astrolobe and barrier.

If you have that kind of team mates, i suggest you to also use Soul Ward. So, i use attack Damage for early game, because most of the top laner are solo, Armor because Kuro use taunt that makes him being hit by every people that got taunt.

Umbrella shield for more durability because of its 5% magic resist and armor, and lastly sorcery protect for ability to either protect you or your team for a bit.

Skill Combination

Because kuro is a top laner with a high durability, he is best suited as a tanker, for my build. I recommend you to take:
Passives first, third skill control / second skill knock back either way is fine, take ultimate whenever you can and simply max up passive’s and third skill taunt.

This is the reason, Kuro is one of the best shikigami that will win in tower defending. Why? Because he can taunts the enemies inside the tower, so that they will hit him, because they hit him. The tower will automatically attack them and hit them. If they by chance run away, flash in front of them and use your knock back skill to make them go  inside the tower again. His passive’s skill will also activated each time you are hit by your enemies. So he will definitely win in tower defending.

Just remember to watch the map and if your friends is in need of a support, help them. While, Kuro is perfectly capable on defending. He lacks in attack and because of that. Never initiate a fight without any allies unless. You are perfectly confident in surviving. Not killing, but surviving. Because a killed tank can’t protect anything.

Anyway, there you had it. A good guide for Kuro – the taunting tanker. So? Do you have any other shikigami that you want us to make a guide for? Comment down below. Thank you for reading!
