Onmyoji Arena Tips and Tricks – Guide to Play Ibaraki Doji, The Exploding Killer
Based on the review of Onmyoji Arena, today, we are going to give you a review about a character on the game called Ibaraki Doji.
I always love to play Ibaraki Doji, mainly because he can function as Ninja, Tank, and Samurai at the same time depending on his built, and even as a tank, he can still do a lot of damage to the enemies. Most of his skills are a stun, which is needed to disable any type of enemies. He excel in early and mid game, and if he is used right he can conquer everything. He is best suited for beginner to play!
His Skill sets are:
|1. Grass Cutting Swords||(Main Item)|
|As He will be using his skill more, then you will need cooldown, and mana.
This item will give you that, with 20% CD Reduction and mana regen in each minion / shikigami hit.
Your problem will long be gone. Of course the added HP and stuff will also help you in the battle.
|2. Takemikazuki Boots||(Can be change with Boots of Fury.)|
|I choose the Magic Resist one because his passive lets him gain armor by using his health.
the more health he had the more tanky he is.
|3. Mikazuki||(Main Item)|
|One of the main item to max his Cool down. This item also got +HP which will in turn give him armor.
And most importantly its Armor Penetration effect is pretty useful for more damage.
|4. Vaisravana Drum||(If you want, you can swap this with Omoikane’s Bow)|
|This is another must have item, You already got your skill 3 to give area damage, but what if you can double the damage.
well, by using Vaisravana drum. You will be able to deal twice even trice the damage in area.
This will easily help you farm and kill.
|5. Ninth Wing Heaven||(Main Item, If you are using Subdue)|
|This is your main item to kill mage in the late game. This item helps you to take more damage.
Added with HP+ which will give you more armor which will makes you both tanky in magic and armor.
|6. Yata No Kagami||(Main Item, If you are using Subdue)|
|A Good item which will give you lots of health and armor (Because of its passives) However if you don’t like this item.
You can change it to Tsurumaru which will give you more damage and armor penetration.
For your onmyodo, i actually recommend you to use this sets. Attack damage so you can easily chip down your enemies health in the early game for easier ultimate. Movement speed so that you can roam easily, plus if you use your skill 2 to get those speed boost you can outrun most enemies that you encounter. Armor penetration (I am still conflicted with this onmyodo actually.) I use armor penetration mainly for his ultimate. Mortality to deal more damage so that you can chip away a full health enemy easily. Feather sigil is to give ibaraki a damage boost each time he kills an enemies and lastly Panther maul for that burst damage.
Ibaraki Doji is a samurai, for his skill sets i recommend you to take:
Skill 2 (I got you, Boom) first, Skill 3 (Don’t go near me) and passives skill last. Max out skill 3 first and then skill 2. Take ultimate (Explode!) whenever available.
Now, Ibaraki main early damage comes from the onmyodo, which is the Panther Maul. Most might think that Sorcery Star is more useful for Ibaraki, but believe me it doesn’t. To use Ibaraki effectively, you need to lower your opponent’s health to the point where your ultimate will one hit kill them, which is below 50%. By using Panther Maul, you almost one hit a Marksman, Mage, and Ninja, even in the early game.
Although Ibaraki is a top lane hero, i don’t really recommend you to go top lane unless you really need to. Mainly because most of the top lane enemies are another samurai or tank which will be annoying to kill. You want a more squishy and more vulnerable enemies like mage or marksman, which is available in the bottom lane.
Remember, you can use your onmyodo passive panther maul every 10/20s, so be sure to chip down the enemies health by using a second skill (i got you, Boom) and your 3rd skill (Don’t go near me). It will activate your onmyodo and easily chip down the enemies health.
The strategy of either top or bottom lane is the same, go into the bush, if an enemy shikigami come prepare your second skill and third skill and then hit them. 7/10 cases they will run away, but will definitely throw some skill in the bush.
Jump from one bush to the others and then repeat until you are sure that you can one hit them with your ultimate. In the bottom lane it is preferable that you can target the main damage dealer like marksman or mage. If you had succeeded in killing the enemies then roam.
Roaming is one of the surest way to win the game. Use your first skill that enables you to gain more movement speed, to roam around the arena. Hide in the bush and ambush your enemies with your friends. Also did you know that his passive enables him to have 3% of his health to armor? Well, now you know why he is so tanky.
Now, in the late game, you have 2 option. Go with your team as a tank, and use your ultimate whenever available to render the enemy shikigami useless. The other option is to stealth tower attacking and use your first skill to run away.
If there are a war, then you can always use your first skill to go to the back of your enemies, and then kill the enemies marksman by using your combo which is Third skill (Don’t Come Near me) >> Second Skill (Got ya, Bom!) >> Attack until (35% health) >> Ultimate then run by using your first skill. If manageable, go in again and kill the other damage dealer. Or anyone that is low on health and below 35% because your ultimate will do the job.
Honestly, there isn’t much that i can tell you about ibaraki but play him cowardly. Go inside the bush and ambush any enemies that you can find, and run when you are in pinch by using your second skill. He is one of the most annoying shikigami, if you do this again and again. Imagine being hit and stun when you go near a bush. Your enemies will soon be terrified and traumatized by a sight of a bush and won’t even go near it.
