>What should I do with the armor/weapons I don't want/use?
Check if you can donate any at the hidden teahouse for daily/clan rewards. Otherwise preferably disassemble them. You can also sell them to Tome or donate to Danjo at the Teahouse if you need a bit of extra glory or cash. Later on you'll be keeping them for Soul Matching, but don't worry about that until you get to NG+.

>The blacksmith is expensive, should I be using it?
You don't need to. Throughout WotSamurai and WotStrong you will constantly be finding better gear and builds don't matter so much. Soul Matching is expensive and intended for late game. If you do find a weapon you really like, try reforging it's effects using spirit iron, it's the cheapest and easiest way to improve a weapon.

>Why do people keep mentioning "smithing texts"?
Bosses tend to drop pieces of their armor and weapons when you defeat them. Very rarely they will drop a smithing text which allows you to forge their armor/weapon.

>Which clan should I join? (clan unlocked through progression)
Whichever one has a bonus that you think will benefit your build the most.

Is the boss fight that you unlock at the end of region 1 supposed to be difficult? I can only ever get 1 or 2 attacks off on him before he starts blocking it also seems impossible to tell when I'm actually going to stagger him when I attack him or not so I'm just waiting for him to use 2 specific attacks before I hit him - doing this the fight seems like it's going to take goddamn 15 minutes - am I doing something wrong? I also tried parrying some of his attacks but still not sure if it's possible or not

Mission levels refer to the gear and are more about comparing them to other missions, but don't listen to that other guy, keep at it and pull through, you can do it.
>>
>>195547248
The recommended mission levels are more for gear, not your character level. But still his mission should probably be recommended a bit higher.

For example, if a mission is recommended mission level 60, it wouldn't be that hard if you were level 40 but had level 60 gear. But trying to do the same mission at level 60 with only level 40 gear would be rough

This is fucking bullshit.

Is paralysis a shitty status to inflict? Seems most yokai snap out of it after I get a single hit on them, which isn't much when I use kusarigama and tonfa. Seems good for buying yourself time to heal or buff, but not so good for damage
>>
>>195548808
Kill the two yokai first then lure the kelly's back into the vat area and they split up a bit.
>>195549008
Paralysis only works on a single hit so for those two weapons it's kinda shit.
>>
>>195549008
>Seems most yokai snap out of it after I get a single hit on them

That's literally how paralysis works
>>
>>195549008

>tonfa

If you have charged attack, not sure about the name but it's for all stances and you just hold heavy-attack, aim it at their back.

What region are you anons playing from? I picked Miami US because it's the closest US server from where I'm actually at
>>
>>195547215
as someone who played 2 regions with the pirated version, then switched to bought version, the online components are quite useful, not to mention you are going to miss the whole Clan thing, which is basically glory and stuff for equipment you don't use.
More phantoms to fight is the thing I'm loving more than else so far, they give good stuff and add a bit more variety to the base game's phantoms.

Of course you can cheat engine glory, which you get very slowly without the clan thing, if you stick to the pirated version that is.
You could use cheat engine on the legit version aswell but are you a faggot enough to do that?

>>
>>195547215
>>195549191
if you didn't play the game yet, Phantoms are like those signs you use on dark souls to summon someone to pvp, except it only summons NPCs.
and said signs replace the blood death mark of dark souls, meaning that if a player dies in that place, you can fight an AI controlled version of him that can also drop part of his gear
>>
>>195549008
It can be really useful if you can apply it fairly often, which is why it's actually really good with those weapons. You need a bit of control to get the most out of the actual infliction, but at the same time you can just keep rapidly inflicting it over and over to cancel their attacks, which can be very useful on yokai.

You need to soul match items with the same rarity, type and name if possible (also the level difference makes the cost jump like crazy), in order to avoid getting jewed by One-Eye-fu
>>
>>195549524
You can bring them down a bit by using the same equipment and using rarer materials, but yeah be prepared to spend a lot if you're increasing by a lot of levels.

So in late game when everyone's like level 200+ do you basically have to refarm entire sites every couple dozen levels if you can't afford to soup match up? Does level on its own do anything? Is there any reason to soup match a level 200 piece of armor if you're happy with its stats just because you're level 280?

>>
>>195552369
For starters, late game isnt 200, its 500+
No
Depends on level range. 300 to 304 is not a large increase if at all for some items, but 190 to 200 is
For defense bonuses that stop mattering after wise. If you are at that point you will already know how to bypass soul match costs entirely and have the ability to take a level 1 item to 300 if you so desired with no gold cost.

its a shame he keeps overspending precious ki accidentally rolling in mid stance

>>195549345
Quick google search says you should disassemble everything and sell the materials, it makes you more money that way, but there's no option to sell your raw materials at the blacksmith. Did they remove material selling since launch or something?
>>
>>195553760
Play the game and find out. The systems to do so become readily apparent. If you really like a item lock it and when it becomes to costly to upgrade throw it in the storehouse until you can get to floor 30 in the abyss.
>>
>>195553595
no idea how well they work later, but I've been rolling through my first playthrough with tonfa/kusari (mainly tonfa because they're satisfying to use) and utterly wrecking shit without putting any points in skill
>>
>>195553595
They're fine, they just focus on Ki damage rather than regular damage. The meme is that anything in this game is actually bad. Except Flying Sword talismans, they're pretty bad.
>>

If I stack it until 100%, do I still get staggered by attack if my Ki ran out?

So does the mujina/mimic only do basic gestures (the default ones saved on your shortcut) or do they just copy any gestures on your shortcut?
I kind of want to change them but I'm afraid it'll just make it harder to find the specific gestures in the complete gestures menu.
>>
>>195554845
i've only seen him do one of the 9 shortcuts
>>
>>195552212
Also does it only work in mid stance

>>195554845
I have never had to fight a single one and I'm on my first playthrough so most of the gestures I'm seeing them do are for the first time. You have plenty of time to find the right one

>>195554986
It's called Ki Pulse: Man. Once you learn it on one weapon it learns it for all of them, and there's one for each stance with an attack boost for high and a free dodge for low. You have to do the Perfect Pulse while in mid stance but you can change stance afterwards and still have the buff active until you block something. Also the more Ki you spent and recover from the Perfect Pulse, the longer the buffs will last.

His laser has a huge telegraph to it, like with all of his attacks. The only way you could really get hit by anything in the first phase is if you hadn't lit the torches which is why I think the fight is so much better and designed to be fought without them lit.

How should I handle my stats? What weapons are good/viable? Is toughness more important that defensive multiplier?

I just got off the boat and I haven't ventured up the beach yet. How do I summon?
>>
>>195556662
The way you think sounds cool or interesting. Every weapon is good and viable. Toughness determines the strength of your guard and hyper armour, defensive multiplier is your actual defense, but doesn't contribute as much as damage reduction % does, so heavier armour will always be quite a bit more effective defense-wise should you be looking for that.

There's a skill that allows you to skip the animations for ninjitsu and the magic tree has one too.
>>
>>195558113
Ninjutsu and Onmyo each have a mystic art that removes the animations for buffs.
>>
>>195554335

Even those can trigger the weapon / armor break effects on your weapon and can be handy with slow weapons like axe.

>>195555190

Try umbracite and temper it in. Or just use talismans. Talismans are common as shit and apply more elemental damage anyway. They are also dirt cheap in the onmyo tree.

It's a little situational and difficult to use, but it does a shitton of damage, you can use the first part for Ki damage without having to go into the full thing, and the stabs can reach taller yokai. The other two are more multipurpose but Piercing Rain and maybe also Spearfall if I remember right are high stance only, while Chidori can be on any stance so you could always use both. I like having it on low stance just for potential gorillion hit combo strings.

you can sell the parts you get from disassembling.

There are plenty of opportunities to get books. Don't be afraid to experiment around with stats.
>>
>>195571793
Just invest in the primary stat until you get bored of using the spear, then respec for the weapon you want. You dont even need to respec attributes if youve been putting in samurai points. Weapon damage will scale from higher level weapons earlier on way more efficiently than from your stats.
>>
>>195572195
But should I just focus on one weapon or 2 weapons? Because I feel 2 weapons really spread my points thin
>>
>>195572370
Focus on 1 weapon on NG, you won't get enough samurai skill points to make two weapon types shine to their potential outside of the higher difficulties.

I just wanna shill the bow and gun, you dont need to invest stat points into them, but they are so fucking useful at sniping archers and headshotting bosses with long recovery times from attacks, leaving them open for a grapple.

So I've made my way through the demon-infested village and I'm not really sure I want to be an Odachi/Tonfa guy.

I'm so used to Souls-style combat that I still haven't really nailed stances and such yet, so I'm thinking of rerolling katana/axe. I'm really getting steamrolled by the oni things that come from those big clouds, so I just pop living weapon and swing for the fences.

I got 8/9 of the little critters, dammit
>>
>>195577645
Mate you are in the first level. Weapons dont have a stat requirement. Just play the game and quit worrying about your build. You are very far away from having to make any long term decisions.
>>
>>195577645
Honestly, I'm in the second world and I barely change stances. I just found out which moves I like the most for a weapon and mostly stick to that stance.

Sometimes I change it up, but most of the time I have one stance per weapon.
>>
>>195577645

You will eventually be using all the weapons to gain proficiency and skill points anyway so try them all out you won't lose all your damage like in Souls.

Do you guys switch between your primary and secondary melee weapons as the situation calls for it or have you been leaning more heavily towards one as you play?
>>
>>195577645
You should practice not just ki pulsing but fluxing too. I've now gotten the hang of doing it in LW mode where I switch stances twice after a combo and my LW timer keeps going up, not infinitely but its definitely more noticeable than if I was just standing whacking a boss.

>>195581756
I feel like stances are enough for any situation. I used to keep an odachi on hand for revenants, but now I can take on any weapon type with just the katana.
>>
>>195581756
Almost at the end of way of the strong, been using primarily tonfas and I carry a spear that I use once in a blue moon for aoe spin.

Thinking about switching though because as enjoyable and fun the play style is I am noticing a gradual decrease in the amount of damage I am doing and the enemies seems to have higher and higher ki.

Alright lets try making this post again without fucking up the spoiler tags.

Can someone tell me if my build is fucked? I'm at Maria right now and I've been stuck on her for a while. I get one shot by quite a few of her moves and I barely do any damage to her. I've also been getting one shot by a few things throughout the dlc, even basic enemies, so I feel like something's gotta be up. I've been getting the feeling for a while now that I have no idea how to really make a proper build in this game so now that I'm at the post game content my mediocre shit just isn't gonna cut it anymore. Any tips to improve it? I'm playing on PS4 so you'll have to excuse the image quality. I didn't take pictures of each individual armor piece for obvious reasons but you can assume its just a mix-mash of different pieces based on looks and equip load.

There's no reason not to be using a set, go baby to the previous missions and farm one. If your weapon has lightning damage, use lightning talisman and twin raikinen or whatever that spirit is called.
Plus your odachi gives you a shit ton of damage with heart investment, why have you not put points in it? What is investing in body giving you? Odachi strength and stamina bonuses means you can use heavy armour with it, so just put minimum stamina for heavy armour set, and pump the rest into heart and strength. Also whatever ninjutsu and magic you want to use, minimum requirements, and spirit requirements. Your body at 9-10 is enough if you pay properly, you'll be taking hits with a good heavy armour set

Anyone else having constant crashes on queen's eyes mission?
Played though the game mostly without problems, on this mission it always crashes randomly during bossfight or even while I'm running to the boss.
So basically I cannot progress and access DLC content because of this shit.
>>
>>195589930
i've had to deal with those crashes with both my 100 eyes fights now

first i kept crashing during the cutscene, then right after william is visible in the arena and sometimes only after the boss spawns the eyes

the only way i got past it was by lower all settings to minimum and just trying again and again until it didn't crash for some reason

I hear sloth talismans have a very short duration on higher difficulties. Should I just wean myself off of them or do they still have a regular length against stuff like various large youkai?
>>
>>195590031
Thanks, I'll try that.
>>
>>195590081
It's good practice to wean yourself off them. They can still be handy since a second's advantage is an advantage nonetheless, but you should try and learn not to depend on them. The higher you go the more likely you are to get killed in a single hit by most things, so the more able you are at getting by on your own skill, the better.

They're not bugged and you can use LW, but getting hit while in LW may count and you have to do it on the boss' original mission, e.g. giant toad crusher has to be done on the iga escape and can't be done on the solo side mission.

At the very least you should begin putting some focus on set bonuses. I remember hitting the same point as you and realizing that pure skill wasn't going to cut it any more.

>the stupid (+11) or whatever system making crafting completely obsolete
If anything, this is where smithing becomes important. You can get divine fragments by disassembling divine gear and use those for a >50% chance of forging divine versions yourself. Also, this might be a good point for you to start delving into the abyss.

Follow your heart, better to go in blind and learn for yourself doing what you want rather than just what somebody else said. The game's not so poorly balanced that a particular option is going to lock you out. Worst case scenario, if something's really not working out for you, you get quite a few free respecs during the course of the game (and the first ones you purchase are pretty cheap, too).

Saw a temper ability for stone damage to increase by 999.99%. This a joke ability?
>>
>>195593863
I guess you could call it a lethal joke ability. There's a Grace set whose 7pc bonus is something like +5000% stone damage, which stacks with the arm guards effect and you can also get stone throw speed on them. Stack all of these and you could feasibly fuck shit up with pebbles.
>>
>>195593863

Doesn't sound like a joke. Who wouldn't want their stones to hit for 11 damage?
>>
>>195593863

There's also Unlimited Stones, one that increases Stone Ki damage by about 2000%, throwing speed up (Stones) and there's a set bonus that has a bonus to stone damage too.

Try spreading it out evenly.

Despite picking my initial equipment and guardian to be strength-focused, I ended up going 1kat/2kat before even finishing the first mission, and dumped everything into heart and skill for quite a while.

>>195596946
>why is the wiki for this game so fucking awful?
For whatever reason, it didn't inspire the same autistic cataloguing tendencies as Dark Souls.

>why are there no 3rd party tools for theorycrafting builds?
Several possible reasons. Most stats don't have softcaps like Dark Souls does and their stat boosts fluctuate over 3-5 level cycles, and builds in the game rely far more heavily on set bonuses, weapon effects and the use of specific skills. There are so many factors that go into effective builds in Nioh by comparison to Souls that I can't blame people for not having it pinned down to a spreadsheet yet.

Any tips for the centipede guy?
Most of his follow up attacks are spinning attacks and there's no time to dodge them and you can't even block them since he does 3 of them in quick succession.
>>
>>195597387
Try and stay reasonably close to his right side (your left), where the big centipede arm is. I feel like you have a better chance of evasion if you try and stay around there. If you need breathing space, back away but keep sprinting sideways so his odachi throw misses and only apply buffs or use items after it does. Other than that, you just gotta hope you learn his tells after a few deaths.

Only one of his attacks is really dangerous, the one where he follows up a sword swing with a two hit spin and another swing. It has good tracking aswell and is hard to dodge, learn to recognise it. You can only rely block his centipede running swing and throws so get the dodge timings right or hit&run. Also the guardian talisman with the twin doggos helped me, kept him paralysed for most of the fight to make dodging easier.

Akechi allowed him to return to humanity. Matters of spirituality existed on a different level to the kind of political act his execution was. Even if they intended to have him beheaded, it was still the right thing to do to allow him to die as a human and not a demon.
He was executed because Ieyasu won and Mitsunari was the enemy to his cause.

>>195598136
>where does he think he is

>>195598136
And video games are so much more dignified and mature.
>>
>>195589849
Dodge his attacks until he breaks his on ki, knock him down and final blow him, get behind him, combo him as much as possible, repeat. If you die in one hit don't try to attack unless he's low on ki.

You need to learn the dodge timing for the charge-up attack too. and when you learn the tell for the backstep -> flurry, that's another easily exploitable move.

You can do it. Muneshige taught me the game.

oh the dodge timing for the dog is three seconds.

>>
>>195598997
I completed all the missions in order and kept all the +1/+2 divine things I found to soul match. By the end of the 1st map I had smth full +1 set and +3 weapon, and progressing through the 2nd map it seems to be working fine this way. You can also jump in the lvl~220 bath house mission to farm the trinket that allows you to get set bonuses with less items.
>>
So I keep crashing on queens eyes, should I just dorp the game to minimum settings in hopes of fixing it?
>>
>>195598997
I suggest you do the bare minimum amount of missions to unlock Hundred eyes again and go straight into WotD since the gear is much better compared to the jump from default to Strong.

hi anons.

i'm a PC and im currently running nioh. my owner started out getting pretty mad about the frame rate lock, but recently he has started to get really into okatsu even though he dies to her constantly.

he has pursued vast amounts of foot fetish porn, and we have reached the stage where he is cumming into his hand/on the keyboard and wiping away the keyboard cum with the cum hand like it makes a difference. my peripherals are full of dried okatsu-foot cum, which makes operation impossible.

i feel violated and disgusted that i have to load up grotesque okatsu foot images and then be sprayed with cum, which amalgams with the cheeto dust to create some horrible concoction. we have lost caps lock and the keys keep sticking, making his gameplay worse and his okatsu obsession even more potent.

i am not joking, i am a very well built machine with an i7 processor and i am better than this. what can i do to stop this?

So how exactly is the 1kat perfect guard into knockdown better than the parry?
Tested both skill on some revenants and the parry does way more potential damage, mostly because with the parry, the enemy fall backside up so the downward stab deals more damage due to backstab, while the perfect guard knockdown makes the enemy fall backside down, dealing less damage on the downward stab.
>>
>>195602192
later on, in higher difficulties, those parries won't knock them down in one parry since the amount of ki damage won't be high enough anymore. whereas backwave will ALWAYs knock them down for fast kills and damage

Is it possible to get B agility in heavy armor? On the respec menu I pumped my stamina to 80 something and it was still C so I rolled it back to the minimum required for C.
>>
>>195604294
Technically yes but you'd need extremely high stamina and strength
>>
>>195604294
C agility makes your dodges slow as fuck and makes everything you do cost 40% more Ki, relative to A agility. It completely fucking gimps you for negligible gain.

You can easily wear a mix of heavy/medium armour starting from like 35 stamina. You can also reforge armour for the -weight% passive.
>>
>>195604474
Ah, bummer. I spent 90% of the game in light armor and was enjoying high agility. Only reason I made the switch is because the Master Swordsman set and weapon are quite good for dual swords.

There's a weight reduction trait on all armor pieces you can get pretty easily by tempering.

There are so many ways to stack ki regen in this game I would rather be able to survive a hit than get out a marginally longer combo. C agility is fine. You don’t need to dodge when you can block and you can easily turn low ki in your favor with axe or atlas bear.

Try and post something helpful and people give hell for it. You guys are great you know that? Sorry I forgot this was restricted to people who have been playing for 9 months on PS4.

>>195606358

Sorry if that post came across as “giving you hell” but when every corpse in the stage is going on about the warding FIRE keeping shit away I should hope that using fire on the boss is the first thing you try.

Fans will always have some kind of luck bonus on them. Either flat luck or increased drop rates. If you sort accessories by type you can notice that each graphic always has a specific, locked bonus. Prayer Beads with Yokai Damage / Reduction could help you clear the fight faster if you dont have fire damage bonuses for example.

I think I'm missing something, because the whole fight consisted of me going into living weapon once, chopping up his segments and then running and shooting like a bitch at him.
Is there some obvious tech I missed?

>>195608787
Way of the Strong twilight missions and co-op enemy drops. Also can be forged from regular umbracite at a rate of 3:1.
>>
>>195609119
no, it's the worst boss fight in the game.
I mean the only tech is to make sure you block his chompy charge, don't run away from it. if you block it once he instantly stops and you can circle around for free hits.
>>
>>195608787

I think Way of the Strong twilight missions give quality. Otherwise you can forge 3 of one rank into the next rank. They are lumped in with Tools/Materials in the forge menu I think.

Am i actually going to have to farm divine fragments for countless hours and get all my shit to divine 10 to make it through the DLCs alive because that's a part of the game i seriously despise.

Oh cool thanks boys. You can get umbracite in the abyss too, does that mean you can get higher ranks of it in deeper floors? Or is it just twilight and coop only?
>>
>>195609275
You will need divine gear but you'll get it from drops and rewards. From there it's just a matter of soul matching.

Way of the Strong isn't too bad, but it's a taste of things to come. The loot grind will intensify and you might find yourself getting sucked in despite yourself, but if you find WotS awful you'll hate everything that lays ahead.
>>
>>195609275

Just get a full set of divines and focus upgrading your weapon. Stuff starts dropping witg higher +values later on so it becomes pretty easy to upgrade your weapons. You don’t even really need to pay much attention to stats, just +value - just make sure you dont scrap a good inheritable by mistake.

Yeah but you only get the basic divine level as drops, isn't that how it works? I just want to play through the content of the game, why is it forcing this shit on me
>>
>>195609316
Yeah, for each new floor boss you beat, you'll get one piece of umbracite that scales with the difficulty of that floor. I think 1-5 is WotSamurai and gives you regular umbracite, 6-10 is WotStrong and gives you quality, 11-20 is Way of the Demon and gives you Fabled, 21-30 is Way of the Wise and every floor from 21-999 drops Divine umbracite.

>>195609713
You'll get higher +values as drops as you progress further into WotS. Play through it a bit, if it still frustrates you that much, just drop it. I quit for about two months after I got halfway through WotS for the same reason, but when I picked it back up I got completely addicted to the grind.

They're built for ki damage and keeping up pressure. Their damage output is so universally bad (by comparison) that I pretty much gave up levelling Skill for them past a certain point, but if you build them for ki damage and Parry Disabled, they're pretty top. They do basically demand a backup weapon with some actual damage output though.

Nobody can deny that tonfa grapple is the sickest shit.
>>
>>195615427
A lot of the more usable attacks like low strong and a bunch of the stronger skills are with the scythe. It's really more based around how you play with the weapon.
When I think about it it's more like the weight one is for people that don't know the weapon well and just use the basics while the scythe one is for those who are more nuanced with it.
>>
How do I get equipment past level 150?

Use something else for damage, be it paralysis, poison, buffs, debuffs, elements or just your effects. Damage output is something you can easily make up for elsewhere, especially with the weapon's strengths backing it up.

>>
>>195617706
That's a load of crap anon. The high stance light attack is the best kusarigama attack by miles. It does like a million hits per second and stacks debuffs like nothing else in the game while also being the highest dps chainable attack the weapon has.

All of the stances are good for different reasons but if you're not switching to high stance to take advantage of enemy openings you're missing out on damage.
>>
>>195618057
>i want to be the little girl
u ppl
>>
>>195618104
I didn't say it was bad at all and I sure as hell didn't say not to use high stance, but it's still a slower attack so it's not like you're only going to be attacking with it when you can swap down to take advantage of shorter openings etc. Stuff like Deliverance, Renegade Dragon, Leaping Strike and Crimson Flurry can do a ton of damage by themselves already and all use the sickle so there's plenty of reason to use the other mystic art to boost them even further.

>>195622632
If I recall correctly heavy weapons in the Souls games tend to be higher dps than lighter ones unless you abuse buffs. In Nioh heavier weapons tend to do more ki damage and single hit damage, but generally don't have much higher dps than faster weapons.

I would argue that every weapon is pretty solid if you know how to play it. Tonfa is probably the weakest in dps but even then it has its uses.

Get cheat engine. Load up the game and input your glory value, to make things easier I'd suggest having a -somewhat- unique value. i.e. 1573 or something, as opposed to like, 50. Once you input your value scroll to the bottom, your values will most likely be there. Go do isle of demons and dual the first revenants, that's an easy 10 glory and it'll change your value. Check cheat engine and find the changed values, there'll be two. Double click both to add them to the address list. One of the two addresses will kick you back to the main menu. Once this happens, click the 'active' box to the left of the address. Once you get back ingame if the value has changed, untick the box. Go do isle of demons again and kill the first revenant, if you don't the game will kick you back to the start every time you try to buy something from Hisahide, you -need- to increase your value in a natural way, hence fighting a piss easy revenant. After that just himorogi out and you're good to go, enjoy your newfound glory.

I'm only on NG right now so every 10 levels is pretty reasonable to me with how common blue materials are. Obviously once I get to the higher difficulties I'll be forging less and focusing more on aiming for higher rarity sets and reforging and stuff.

I use Water Shadow and Leaf Glide because with Water Shadow you get a full backturned combo which you can use to deplete Ki if you want that, and if their Ki is already low enough you can get huge amounts of damage.

If you really want to poison a lot of things over a long period of time it would be, since it's the longest lasting, but personally I think the traps are the way to go for poisoning. You have to learn the poison buff anyway if you want to get any of the others though so you can always give it a shot.

It's easy, just pump Dex and get shuriken/kunai/stormkunai, enough magic to get sloth/weakness talisman and maybe carnage. Hope you find some armor with thrown weapon x2 and go to town. Unlimited ninjitsu is also fine. Everything melts, even the dlc.

did you pump dex first and then start other stuff, or get dex up to a certain point then level out other stats and go back to dex?

Yokai realm is a special one involving harder stuff than regular co-op, do random encounters.

He fucked me in death as he did in life. An annoying fight because you only have time to land 2 hits on the bastard before he recovers from a miss. In my first attempt he one-shotted me out of Living Weapon and then murdered me during my stun animation. LW is turning out to be pretty useless this early in the game.

so how do you acquire appearances for refashioning? I've picked up certain pieces of gear but they don't appear in the refashioning menu

Just pick it up once. It's piece by piece, picking up a helmet for example doesn't unlock the whole set's appearance. And there are just a few items that can't be used for refashioning.
>>
>>195630862

Its not meant to tank hits. Its mostly an “oh shit” button for when you are surrounded, low on health and need things to get off your ass for a couple seconds, or are looking to apply a second elemental debuff to a strong enemy to royally screw ‘em while they are confused.

cœur is your main stat if you main 1kat and has the bonus of improving your ki considerably, dexterité will improve your ninjitsu capacity and damage as well ad unlocking more ninja dojo missions, force is pretty much only useful for improving your odachi and axe damage
>>
What spirit should I be using? All of the bonuses and such they give it seems really difficult to tell.

Right now I am using the basic fire wolf. If it matters my main weapons are spear and the normal katana (not dual wield or two handed), and my spirit is at 10 (but I can easily level it).

Please lads, i just want to get through WotW as quickly as possible, this shit is so boring and frustrating and i just want to unlock the next rarity that makes every divine equipment obsolete anyways.

Do the bare minimum then do Queens eyes and hope you don't crash.
>>
>>195633709
>way of the warrior
???
Do you mean Way of the Strong? Is it named something else in your language? Anyway, you'll get +value gear as you play higher level missions. You gotta be less impatient, you'll get fucked sideways by the next difficulty if you just rush into it completely underprepared.
Look at the mission progress bar; you'll see several small increments on it. You have to beat three missions per increment, and when you clear the last small increment you'll unlock The Queen's Eyes. Beat that to open the next difficulty.
>>
>>195633675
Fire wolf is good and universally useful.
A lot of the other spirits are for more specialized builds.
I guess you don't use guardian talisman much? Thats a skill that will heavily influence spirit choice (and fire wolfs is pretty mediocre).

>>195634090
Whatever the fuck you unlock once you complete NG is called.

>>195634580
>He crashes at the boss fight
ftfy
>>
>>195633675
The bonuses should explain themselves, and if they sound like they'd benefit your current play style, use them. Kato is a solid choice for raw damage because of its damage boosting passives and has a good living weapon since it charges relatively quickly and lasts a reasonably long time.

By contrast, a spirit like Daiba Washi (wind hawk) charges really quickly but barely improves your damage and runs out really quickly, but its passives do things like improving the drop rate for equipment as well as boosting the chances of gear being a higher rarity when it does drop. Read their effects and use the options button to learn what they do if you're unsure and go with what sounds useful.

Kind of a scrub question I guess but is there a reason to use Haze over Water Shadow or vice versa? Kind of confused why they both exist seeing as they're both mid stance only. From the video I guess Water Shadow automatically faces you towards them after you parry so you can attack them faster? Does that mean I should've even have put points into Haze?
>>
>>195636048
I feel like I've been answering this nonstop and it's something you can experiment with so easily and have fun with. Haze does more Ki damage and if used to knock an enemy out of Ki it causes them to do a unique spinning knockdown animation. Water Shadow does more damage and gives you the opportunity for a rear combo instead of the followup. They both go on different buttons so you can have both, use Leaf Glide instead of Haze or if you really want to forgo one of the parries and get an attack on that stance instead.
>>
>>195636048
Just forget Water Shadow even exists because Haze is superior

Haze I > Haze II > Iai > Killing Blow

For the most part the difference is just that Water Shadow is for damage and Haze is for Ki Damage, furthermore Water Shadow has a way tighter window. Anyways, the resulting damage from that Haze combo is way higher though
>>
>>195636048
>>195636784
>>195636848
or disregard both

and only use backweave instead
>>
>>195636784
>>195636848
Interesting, thanks anons
>>
>>195636934
Backwave kind of sucks because you literally have to immediately press L1 again in order to get the Tempest follow up and it's also way less satisfying to land than Haze imo.
>>
>>195637235
>immediately press L1 again
found a slowfat
>>
>>195636848
From experience I've found the window to be the same if not close enough to not matter. Unless they changed it back, that Haze combo only works if you break their Ki with the stab, and if they're that low then you can either do a normal combo from Water Shadow or it's own followup to stagger them and then you get a double Iai into Killing Blow which does far more damage and is probably one of the most damaging things 1kat has.
>>
>>195637315
I'm not saying that its hard, just feels retarded.
>>
You guys are mentioning Iai into killing blow, so am I correct in assuming that you can charge it up to hit them while theyre on the ground and still have enough time to killing blow them? because in my experience the second I attack an enemy on the ground instead of killing blow them they tend to get up right away
>>
>>195637691
yes
can even get 2 Iai in with some autism...
>>
>>195636848
>>195637235
>Backwave kind of sucks
Hard disagree.
Haze does nowhere near enough ki damage to floor enemies on higher difficulties, making backwave infinitely more useful. Having to hit L1 again is trivially simple, it's no different to having to hit square again to perform Haze II, so I have to call bullshit on that being any kind of argument against it.
>>
>>195637593
>just feels retarded
I don't even know how you think that's an argument.
>>
>>195609275
You don't have to farm anything, if you play it normally again you'll get gear increasing in level as you go into harder missions, if you really want divine fragments you could just kill a bunch of revenants and dissemble their gear.
>>
>>195637691
When an enemy is knocked onto the ground, you get one hit and then any others bring them back to their feet. Killing Blows don't count towards this but cause the enemy to get up, so you can make use of that for slick ground combos.

Around what level should I start actually farming up a set? Or just as soon as I get to NG+?

Also what are some good medium armor sets? I use 2kat, kusarigama, and tonfa. Prefer medium over heavy and light because I want to stay in agility B but I also hate how shitty my blocking is in light armor
>>
>>195640925
I was below 30% for ages but I started surviving way better when I went with medium armor and sub 70%. Being able to actually block is great. If I can get better light armor in NG+ where I'll be able to block better I might switch back

>>195640975
Whatever level you actually feel you want to. It won't go to waste since you'll still use it for quite some time especially if you Soul Match it, and it's experience that will go towards when you settle. Way of the Strong is around the time where you'll be wanting to be more proactive about it though.
Sets are always mainly based around your playstyle, so you just have to look over the effects and decide what you want. Keep in mind you don't have to wear all of a set and can mix and match them, so for example you could mix some parts of heavy and light sets to stay in B Agility. Your guard stat is specifically based on Parry and Toughness.

I played through 90% of the game under 30% until I got lucky and got the Master Swordsman's Armor smithing text from a dojo mission.

For me personally those set bonuses outweigh the negatives of wearing heavy armor. I use kekkai talisman with amplification for bosses and nothing outside of boss fights requires that much ki regen anyway when you can pulse and flux.
