Main game difficulty 5/10, dlcs 7/10. Abyss beyond 36th floor 9/10. Trophy wise only require you to clear 20th floor and ng++. I'm close to completing ng++++ with an odachi/axe build but sucks in Abyss. Stuck in 40th floor centipede boss, huge aoe & hp. Thought random can help me clear but they up lorry first. I think I had enough :lol:

Sasuke's izuna drop, annoying :lol: Actually all the master ninjas in this game are. Okatsu has a long range 3 hit flying swallow. Hanzo is ninja tools spammer. The ninja frog has super long range spear thrust and butt drop. I'm going to go farm izuna drop skill from Jin Hayabusa and use it on Sasuke :lol:

Digital complete edition was on sale 30usd. Wait for sale loh. $70 for over 300hrs is worth it. I've clocked 380hrs and slowly moving away from the game. Cuz Abyss is boring and restricted to a few high dps builds. It's a matter of who ohko first.

Saw a youtube unboxing video mentioned that the JP Complete edition with artbook & ost has English language support if your PS4 is set to English.

He said he was surprised to see that the game is in english, displayed in english if ps4 is set to english but no other languages. Dlc is on disc and there's an instruction pamphlet in color. That's rare :lol: Cover art also look better than my vanilla disc. Shares same trophy list.



Let me know if one day you want to venture deep into abyss floors. Currently I'm just doing a few floors per day if I feel like it. I think I need to reach floor 500 before I can get anything better than my current gear. I'm only at 89th :lol:

Nioh 2 120fps looks abit blurry but personally I don't think it is as bad as reviews mentioned before patch 1.27. Haven't encounter any graphical glitches in that 1 hour I've played in the 2nd region. It's true that moving shadows are static like wind blowing on tree leaves. Didn't notice the fps drop. Noticeable improvement over 60fps that's for sure. In the end I still stick to ps5 mode "quality mode" as recommended by df. I don't think I will sacrifice picture quality for 120fps. 60fps is smooth enough.

Now I understand why players complain nioh 2 is a nioh 1.5. This could be a season pass 2 for nioh 1. Once I got to the 3rd region/map and started seeing more and more levels from nioh 1, I was disappointed. Maybe the 3 dlcs will be better, hopefully.

Actually the best route is to clear ng+3 then jump into underworld for fast levels and better gear, up to floor 15 for me. Pros will definitely join in and help out. There are even players hosting ultimate stats picture scrolls (accessory) so you can get one as a drop, save you hours of rng. I entered at lv300+ and exited at lv500+ with the graces gear setup I want, not farming for starred effects. Now dlcs are more manageable.

Imo dlcs story is better than padded out parts, reused maps in main missions.

The mistakes that I've made and the wrong tips I've followed from yt, gaming websites guides. Tips for future players who wish to try out N2.

Do not choose elemental imbued weapons instead invest abit in magic and get the elemental familiars to do the work for you if you are melee, not a pure magic caster or kunai shuriken ninja. Purity or corruption is the way to go. In underworld you will start to get accessories drop with stats like sloth (slowdown) when ninjutsu/magic hits. I went with water to get saturated affliction along with sloth. Also do level up ninjutsu proficiency with shurikens asap for getting to quick change scrolls.

Don't bother tempering too much at the blacksmith until ng+3. Just wear whatever default set effects suitable for you and the highest +(#) you can get. After ng+3, underworld will unlock. Forge your desired gear with no default set effects and temper accessories with lucky equipped weapon, equipped armor, accessories drop. Wear them and jump into underworld. Online is still quite active so summon 2 pros to help you out. As a melee onmyo build, I went with medium/heavy armor, 6 pieces with Izanagi and 7 pieces with Tsukuyomi effect and a purity weapon.

Clans. Whatever shit other players with digital big balls are saying about Toyotomi clan, ignore it and pick that. More amrita for levelling, temper some life recovery with armita absorption onto gear and you also get a further boost with clan effect, qol. Or Honda for halve damage received when hp full. I chose wrong the first time which is Todo for weight damage boost and more hp per stamina point. Not worth it.

Don't fret too much over weapons dropping with star effect mystic dyad which allows the use of both mystic arts. Picture scrolls will drop in underworld or go join someone's scroll mission. Those are easier to reroll with mystic dyad. My final one has 4 ultimate stats and a mystic dyad and it took only a day to reroll.

If you are a switchglaive user, clear and farm the 3rd dlc main mission first boss for arc of chaos after you've completed the main story. With stat damage boost applied to this weapon throwing skill via skills customization, it is a great qol skill to use when you wish to distant yourself from grabby spammy enemies or safer fighting near a cliff. Or if you are sword, fist user, go farm ren hayabusa for izuna drop grapple, so cool :lol:

My personal preference for switchglaive skills are high stance cyclone 1 and 2 (main stats boost), empty retribution (impervious strike for anima regen), arc of chaos(secondary stat boost), mystic art flux, this one need practice to get the right timing.

Guardians defense Genbu, soul cores kasha,ryomen,whatever. Offense Ho-oh, soul cores kasha, white tiger (2nd dlc), tate eboshii(3rd dlc). Kasha and ryomen are both excellent for generating multiple hits to maximize the effect of extraction skill which steals amrita from enemies when you hit them. With life recovery when absorbing amrita bonuses, you will always fast regen hp.

You can remodel armor and weapons twice by pressing /\ to select one option then X on another. The game doesn't tell you that. This gives you optimal defense/weight ratio and scale off 2 stats on weapon. You can remodel accessories twice too.
