10 best tips for playing Nioh


Top 5 Nioh Tips for Beginners (Early progression, builds, setups and what-not)

As a big Nioh enthusiast and a veteran I've decided to make a good video, sharing some of my 'veteran' tips that will help beginners to progress without losing sleep... and well, without making the game unnecessary hard.

I'm not gonna give you an OP 'broken' early game build to cheese everything (even though you can get it done, just grab the Sloth talisman) and I'm not gonna give you speedrun strategies... what I'm gonna give you though - is some basic tips that are designed to give you a good idea on how the game works and how you should approach it.

If you have any questions - shoot, I'll do my best to help you in the comments!

15 Beginners Tips And Tricks NIOH 2 Doesn't Tell You

Team Ninja's Nioh 2 is a tough game, which is saying something in a post-Sekiro world. Not only are there new enemies and types waiting to tear you apart but several new gameplay systems and oppressive mechanics to wear you down. Let's over some beginner tips and tricks that should help even the odds.

Important note: We got the bit about Righteous Jasper wrong. Righteous Jasper can be useful netting more rewards from multiplayer. It essentially spawns a Benevolent Grave at your location to be accessed by other players. While you can't use it to, say, spawn another player's character, the more times it's used by others, the more rewards you'll get in return. Try placing it near tough bosses or situations to reap maximum rewards. Our apologies for the same.




Nioh 2 Beginners Guide - Build Crafting, Skills, Blacksmith, & More

Master the lethal arts of the samurai as a mysterious half-human, half-supernatural Yokai warrior, in this challenging action RPG sequel.
Explore violent Sengoku-era Japan and the deadly Dark Realm, both plagued with grotesque, merciless demons.

Unsheathe your deadly weapons and cut down all enemies in your path using a revamped combat system and the ability to transform into a full Yokai to unleash devastating paranormal powers.

Sharpen your skills
Prepare for the fight of your life with revamped mechanics that build on the fan-favorite elements of Nioh, requiring your full concentration and skill.

Choose your method of combat
Follow the way of the samurai with traditional weapons including swords and hatchets, or fill your Amrita gauge to wield mighty Yokai abilities and destroy monstrous foes via a variety of mighty attacks.

Improve your weapons with the Yokai Shift
Filling your Amrita gauge doesn’t just give you access to a powerful Yokai form, but also allows you to increase the stats of various weapons and add extra buffs, such as staggering foes and grappling downed enemies.

Help – and get help – from other players
Call upon the spectres left behind by other Nioh 2 players to aid you in combat. Their spirits will assist you until the end of the current level… or until they’re defeated.

Nioh - How to Get the Best Kusarigama in the Game (Shiranui) NG+

EDIT: The 'Two in the Shadows' mission now drops the smithing text for the Shiranui.

Out of all the Kusarigama's in Nioh, the Shiranui is arguably the best. Two out of it's 3 stats are the highest of all Kusarigama's (damage multiplier of 620 and parry of 40). It also has the 6th highest break (48) with only 5 out of the game's 21 Kusarigama's having a stat higher, with the highest only 5 points higher. Plus, Shiranui is the only Fire Kusarigama, making this a highly sought after Kusarigama by those preferring a highly damaging fire build.

This video will show you the fastest way to farm for it*, bearing in mind that the drop is random and that you may get it first time, or not for hours. Either way, this is the fastest way to go about it in my experience as it has dropped regularly on the NG+ mission The Demon of Mount Hiei for me.

* since posting this video, the fastest way to farm it is now just to find Revenants with Kusarigama's and kill them. These days most people ussing Kusa's are using Shiranui it seems.

The build I am using in this video is my Justice Ministry Armor Set build, which you can see here:

The green items include green equipment, armor and weapons.

There is a link below for the full explanation and debate on the new farming method if you would like to give this a look. All credit for this discovery goes to Glyphblade and to AlekTrev and iSpaniko for assisting in the testing process - I'm only the messenger on this occasion.
