Like other Souls-like games, Nioh 2 has plenty of tricks and tips – things that will help you survive easily and eat less on this game.
Have you eaten onions anywhere in Nioh 2 already, is anyone feeling confused or inhibited with this game?
Don’t matter the early levels
There is a common mistake that many new Nioh 2 players make, which is too much focus on which equipment to use. It is true that the essence of Nioh lies in the character building, with the perfect set of equipment combined, but that is the story of late late game when you have returned to the country at least 2 times, but the first part is It doesn’t matter much.
Many people are tricked by the index lines on the equipment, so it takes a lot of time to turn around, in fact this is completely pointless. Because the first time you play, you can use all kinds of equipment and put together indiscriminately, as long as it has a high index is enough, the other bonuses have little effect. Once you’ve returned to Nioh for the first time and unlocked New Game +, you will learn how to build a real character, but at the beginning, just go ahead and pick up what you can use.
Do not be too rigid to build indicators
Many new Nioh 2 players are easily fooled by the introduction of the weapons corresponding index, so they keep raising the poison into a single index to maximize the power of that weapon. This is basically wrong, because as it was said until the late game, you start to have experience and equipment to build the character, the first increase in this stat does not make much difference.
Feel free to increase your preference regardless of weapons or equipment, as long as you feel comfortable. Nioh 2 has very cheap reset points so don’t worry, this is similar to skill, just increase your comfort according to your preference because it also resets. The more you get used to many weapons will be more beneficial when you return to the late game of character building, or unfortunately there are new patches that change strength later – Nioh 1 gets this case a lot of times, when a weapon is too will be reduced power mercilessly.
Use your Ninja and Onmyo Magic skills as much as possible
The important improvement of Nioh 2 is that now the Ninja and Onmyo Magic branches will gain points when used, this helps us not to take the effort to increase the index as a lot. So as soon as you get your first Ninja and Onmyo skills, attach and use them as much as possible.
Do not regret that these types of darts with charms are completely free, just return to the temple and they will fully recover. Ninja and Onmyo will be a must if you want to complete Nioh 2 easily, moreover need to use a lot to gain proficiency, because the mission to unlock the last skills will require you to achieve a number of points.
Try to get all Kodama in every mission
The Kodama in Nioh 2 are green goblins, they often appear in the hidden screen, these kids will give us a lot of bonuses like increased experience points and increased drop rates. The advice here is that for each mission you should be aware of how many Kodama will appear, as well as trying to find them all without leaving them.
The reason is because we still have to play New Game + after returning to Nioh, there is a benefit of Kodama when it comes to farming genuine items. Moreover, you also do not like playing a long task just to earn them, it is best to do it the first time to save time. For added convenience, you can search for an item that has the words “Kodama sense”, which will show a green dot on the compass to indicate that Kodama is nearby for easy access.
You can pause it in Nioh 2
The trick that few people know is that Nioh 2 allows us to pause the game – something very rare for Souls-like games. The simple way is to press the menu button (touchpad) and then press Option, this time the game will stop and you no longer have to worry about dying your honey when you need to go somewhere else.
Summon Benevolent Graves wherever you are
Blue graves (Benevolent Graves) are new in Nioh, they are also dead souls but instead of summoning up to fight, it will help us. You will always want to have such a bodyguard go along with you, although the damage of these Revenants is very weak but they are quite buffalo and make great meat beer.
It takes the Okocho Cup to summon Benevolent Graves – the number depends on the level of the grave, but the way to farm the Okocho Cup is very easy, it is with these bodyguards to hit the normal graves (red). Although the damage is not high, you can use them to make beer and break the enemy easier, preferably amusing both farm and find items. The Revenants from Benevolent Graves can be brought into the boss fight, so remember to take advantage of this as much as you can.
Never fight multiple enemies at once
The Souls-like line has never had the concept of being a one-on-one hero, Nioh 2 is similar when only crazy can commit suicide by taking a handicap 2. Always lure every monster out to solo, if they In the distance, take the bow, darts or rocks to separate them from the team. Always keep an eye on the terrain to see if the soldiers are far away there, the last thing you want is to fight when the guy behind is waiting to shoot his skull.
This will be true from the beginning of the game until the end of the late game, because monster monsters will always cost you dozens of blood regardless of furniture. Never be a hero, always find ways 1 vs 1 with them and this leads to the next tip.
36 design – the micro-policy
This is something that you should keep in mind in Nioh 2, that is not fighting, stealing the tail and running. Remember Nioh 2 is a game about building characters, which means that you will get stronger depending on what you wear and when you finish the game. Never sting a monster on the road or a side mission that you feel is too difficult, just run or skip over it and wait for it to return strong later.
Nioh 2 programmers also suggested this from the first game, that is to have a monster as powerful as the boss Gozuki when you just poke your face out. Basically, at that time you couldn’t fight it (of course, mortar would be fine), but even if you kill Gozuki, the rewards are not commensurate and wasted time in vain. Nioh 2 has special level training points, so you don’t need to regret the monster you missed, we can earn a hundred times more experience points like that in better places.
