Onmyoji Arena Tips and Tricks – How to Play as Umibozu, The Annoying Fish

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

Umibozu is one of the best supporter in the game. It is because of his annoying crowd control, slow, and most surprisingly ability to heal in a dangerous situation. He is also one of the most tankiest tank in the game, and can change the match depending on your timing in Ultimate-ing.

However, like other support type shikigami in the game, you must know this…..

Umibozu is not a killer, so pair him up with a marksman, or a ninja, or even a samurai to help your team kill. If you kill the enemies shikigami by mistake, then it is okay, but never leave any of your team mates to run and kill the enemies. He is one of the shikigami that is easy to play but hard to control.

His skill sets are:

Game Preparation:


1. 8ft Magatama (Main Item can be swapped with any Assist item)
Your main support item, it is useful for its regen, MP and HP. The CD Reduction is also useful
but the main reason to take this item is the Passive that can be useful to your teams.
Making them tankier and harder to be killed. Especially since Umibozu is a support type.
2. Hagakure Boots  (Main Roaming Item)
If you think that support doesn’t need to roam, then you are wrong!
Support needs to roam, especially if you can crowd control in AOE.
Because your crowd control might save everybody.
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. Hoko Do (Main armor)
Hoko Do is the main armor for Ebisu. Because he is a melee support, he needs a lot of armor
and magic resist items so that he won’t be killed easily. Hoko Do passive is useful if you want to run
while using your skill 2 or ultimate that can knock them down

For the next 5th or 6th items sets. You can always buy it depending on your opponent, if they had mage, then buy magic resist item like Lavish Red Robe or Ninth Heaven Wing or if your opponent is mainly ninja samurai or marksman, then use Armor item again but this time with added attack like Raja Warhammer, or  another Sessho Seki Do. Because it is one of the best +Armor game.


For Onmyodo, i recommend you to full up the armor because he will be hit, like a thousand times during the game. So a paper thin umibozu won’t be useful for the team. The second one is attack damage for early game farming. It is because umibozu has a low damages, plus his item’s a +defense item.

So taking Attack damage will help him in the early game. Soul ward is useful for his first skill, that can heal him much more by so that he will be able to take more hit. Umbrella shield for tanking purpose, and lastly protect to help either you or your team mates.

Skill Combination

For Umibozu, because he is a support type shikigami, i recommend you to take up this set of skill:
Skill 2 first, then skill 3, after that skill 1. Then divide them evenly and depending on your team condition, you might want to take / max skill 1 first for further tanking ability and take ultimate whenever you can.

Anyway, for Umibozu, a hitter is a must. So pair him up with any marksman or ninja, not so much with samurai because samurai don’t really have that much of fighting ability in early game. The ideal pair up is Marksman like chin, or Hakuro. Spam your second skill only if you can hit them. Each time you hit an enemy shikigami by using your abilities no matter what kind, a fish will spawn and by eating it. You will be able to recover some of your health.

In early game, simply farm and watch the map. If you are ganked, use your skill 3 to slow the enemies and skill 2 to further knocking them up while your allies go back and retreat. It is okay for you to die because in the end. You are a support.

In the late game, your ultimate is will change the flow of the match. It is because your ultimate can disrupt any enemies channeling abilities, slowing them down, while your team marksman take the kill. Knocking the enemies and spamming your second skill can help to. Take Flash and Heal so that you won’t fall easily. Stick to your team marksman, and never let the enemies get close to them.

Umibozu is one of my favorite shikigami to play, but if you are up with him then he can be very annoying. So, here you have it. Another guide done about Umibozu.
