Get +10 Divine Weapons and Armor fast and easy! Fastest +10 divine crafting method for Nioh

Today I want to show you my method to create +10 divine weapons and armor in Nioh the fastest and easiest way. This method is the fastest way to farm + divine gear in Nioh to my knowledge, and can help you get to +10 in a matter of hours. I will also show you my gold farming and ochoku cup farming method to help you get all the things you need to get you to +10 divine gears as quick as possible.

For the gold farming method you will be playing the battle for ohashi bridge. You will be farming revenants for the divine item drops to sell to the blacksmith. You can reset the revenants by jumping off the bridge over and over again until they reappear. This will also help you with farming ochuku cups to offer before the meeting on the other shore mission. Each Ochoku cup you offer will add 1% to your divine weapon drop rate on that mission and help you find more + divine weapon and item drops in Nioh.

After you have farmed the gold and ochoku cups you will start farming the meeting on the other shore. To make this as quick as possible you will need these magic and ninja items.

Tiger running scrolls
Wealth-bringer talismans
extraction talismans
carnage talismans
steel talismans
sloth talismans
blinding shells

If you have all of these items, equip Tengen Kojaku as your guardian spirit and go ham on their asses. The fight will be over in a matter of seconds and you will have many new +4 and +5 gear to use to craft.

I am going to leave the description from my last divine weapon video below if you would like to read it:

Welcome to the channel today I want to talk about the Nioh Endgame, how to unlock Divine weapons and armor (the best weapons and armor in the Nioh) in Nioh, level enhance guardians, and talk about the way of the strong difficulty.

To begin you must complete the main story missions to unlock the Divine weapons, enhance guardians, and the way of the strong difficulty. To unlock the Divine Weapons in Nioh you must first beat the Demon King Revealed mission and slay Kelley. Divine weapons are the highest tier weapons in Nioh and have a green glow around them when dropped. Divine weapons have a higher familiarity bonus than purple weapons and generally have more weapon affixes and stats. You can get a Divine Sword, Dual swords, Spear, Axe/Hammer, Kusarigama, Bow, Matchlock, and Hand Cannon. Each Divine weapon can be any variation of the weapons in each category. Divine weapons and armor promise to be the best weapons and armor in NIoh,
Divine Armor is where things get much more interesting. Divine armor gains the same Familiarity bonus weapons do and can increase the amount of damage mitigated and increase the other stats as well. Divine armor also comes in all variations including set armor and set pieces.
The next thing I want to talk about is the Enhance Guardian leveling ability. The Nioh Enhance Guardian leveling system works close to the way that you level William. The Levels require Amrita and the level cap is set for each guardian. The bonuses are much smaller however than the leveling bonuses you receive, but because most are passive increases to William it make sense. All Guardians can be leveled.
The last thing I want to discuss is the Way of the Strong Difficulty in Nioh. After beating the Queens eyes mission you unlock the way of the strong and it refreshes the mission and increases their level greatly. This difficulty feels about the same as when you first started playing Nioh, but with everything you have unlocked so far.
The Nioh endgame is shaping up nicely and looks to provide much more content.

Nioh get Better Weapons and Armor! Updated step by step Blacksmith Tutorial

Welcome to the channel today I am going to show you how to get better weapons and armor in Nioh by using my updated step by step Blacksmith tutorial. You may have seen my beta blacksmith tutorial, but it is outdated so I am bringing you a new version.
There are many new features to the blacksmith that we didnt have in the beta, such as forge and disassemble. In Nioh Disassemble lets you break down weapons and armor you have collected into different crafting materials (high quality, higher quality, and highest quality). With forge you can upgrade those Nioh blacksmith materials and forge new weapons and armor. When forging one thing to keep in mind is that you only have a CHANCE to roll a highest quality weapon, it is not guaranteed. A few notes from my last blacksmith tutorial:
Welcome to the channel, this is tracerbeast bringing you a Nioh blacksmith tutorial with tips and a Muneshige boss walk through. So I have seen plenty of videos and comments saying that the blacksmith is not available in the Nioh Beta. This is not true at all! While some of the features are not available in the beta, you can use the blacksmith to soul match and reforge weapons and armor and get the best out of your gear. There is only a small notification after you finish the deep in the shadows mission that you have unlocked the blacksmith so this feature has been overlooked. You access the blacksmith in Nioh by going to the starting point and looking through the menu. There is no tutorial on how to use the blacksmith in game, it is all trial and error and can cause you to ruin some of your gear but I will show you the gameplay. That is why I am bringing you this Nioh blacksmith tutorial, to help you from making a mistake when soul matching or reforging. So the Nioh blacksmith has three features: Buy/sell weapons, Soul match, and reforge. Buy and sell is a pretty standard blacksmith feature and not worth any attention as the weapons for sale are low level and without any rarity. Soul match is the ability in the blacksmith in which you can upgrade the level of a piece of gear by sacrificing another piece of gear at a higher level. Reforge is the ability in the blacksmith to reroll a single property of that weapons stats. The best time to use the blacksmith is after you have completed the Muneshige fight because he drops the highest level gear in this demo.

How to get money and Amrita fast - Nioh Tips and Tricks

I show a quick and easy way to get money, amrita, and gear in nioh.

Nioh is set in 1600 within a fictionalised dark fantasy version of the late Sengoku period, a time when the clans of Japan were at war prior to the unification under the Tokugawa shogunate and the beginning of the Edo period. Amidst the fighting and high death toll, yokai have appeared and begun wreaking havoc across the land: major yokai threats that appear in the game include Hinoenma, Jorōgumo, and a Yuki-onna born from the spirit of the wife of Oda Nobunaga following the Honnō-ji incident.

It is sort of Hack and Slash. You can use various weapons to cut down enemies and they drop amrita which is used to level up your character. He has multiple different stats that level up, one if you put a point in it will give him health(life in game), or one that will give him more stamina(ki in game) you also of the course of using certain weapons you will become more familiar with them. Making them more deadly in your very capable hands.
