    Not a MASSIVE improvement, but definitely better all round. Bloody superb.

    That being said if you didn't like the first one you won't like this one. And you have terrible taste.

    Its very much iterate not innovate. There wasnt much wrong with the last one, so we have it again plus a few QOL improvements.

    It does get a bit ridiculous when they start reusing actual levels, tbf.

    @OllyJ Yeah Poison Accumulation+ is useful for that. I normally just battered everything in face and didn't need the poison buff until it came to harder enemies, like Tengu, or bosses.

    66% additional on a +100% backstab heavy stance kusarigama flurry though? GOODBYE. PLEASE DIE.

    Yeah seems to be more of that than the first game so far. I've visited that viper place about 5 times. I thought the first game had at least 3-4 sub mission level layouts but there only seems to be one dedicated sub mission one I've seen so far (the forest area). May be more to come though.

    I don't know, I kind of liked it.

    The switchglaive with magic buffs is like easy mode at this point. For anyone struggling, reroll with switchglaive, it is a death machine.

    It's ok, it's like having Warehouse from tony Hawks isn't it. Bring back a classic.

    OK so yeah Flying Kato set is decent, I think you can even roll shuriken and kunai damge onto the gauntlets too so it's just ridiculous.

    That Ninja veteran dojo mission will not drop the Kato smithing text though, tried it over and over!

    @OllyJ You're better off just farming revenants. Wouldn't drop for me either.

    Also, keep an eye out for orange inheritable shuriken+kunai damage. That'll be the game changer.

    On NG+ for the orange stuff yeah?

    Is there a good mission for farming revs? On Nioh 1 there was a sub mission with a bridge and there was always like...30 graves on it.

    I'm not giving up on the text drop, I'm going to try and get an item drop + Luck build set and give it a few runs.

    Ice mission boss was really decent. Took a few tries but good fun. I knew they'd bring those stabby hatchet cunts back. Hate them.

    Reckon Ninjustu will end up nerfed as the builds seem silly OP.

    Its got to, really. I dont suppose they intended every enemy could be killed in a cloud of death stars. But it was going to happen. Everything in the entire game seemingly has a ninjitsu boost rolled onto it. I dont know if their RNG machine is not very R, but you stack it up even by accident.

    Tbh, Ive changed up my playstyle because I was kind of boring myself. Towards the latter half of the game when you are facing a lot of Yokai, windstorm on dual swords still breaks their Ki in one move. You can just run straight up to any enemy, break their ki and then stun lock them until they are dead.

    Well the increased smithing text drop rate strikes, 15 mins of sword dojo missions before bed and got my master swordsman text. Safe to say now all divine and tempered to my liking, along with the sword at a +2

    Still get destroyed. I do it wearing what I wanted though

    I've just started summoning for them. I solo the main missions and summon for the sub missions. Makes them less tedious as they just tend to be a series of arenas half the time.

    Although i did enjoy the duel with honda. That was good fun.

    I was also wondering if we'd see certain floating yokai again. Cunts.

    Weirdly, they get a lot easier as the game progresses.

    So...can the Flying Kato texts drop off the Veteran ninja dodjo mission or just the Sword text?

    I got the sword one...

    Making slow progress due to lack of time and wanting to clear all the sub missions. Finally onto area three, how many is there?

    It is definitely worth Summoning for the sub missions, on my first playthrough it helped speed things up.

    On my second playthrough I am better at the game and have a streamlined build so I can solo them without too much issue.

    I am almost through to the end of my reroll as everything is falling to the switchglaive mid attack finished with high attack combo.

    oof. Yeah my build is getting there, +66% melee damage to poisoned enemies, plus a power pill, plus a weakness talisman is absolute jokes.

    ooh and 100% amrita earned on certain active skill which I assigned to my bad boy Serpent strike high stance "Hold Triangle" move, if I manage to down bosses I get so much amrita, especially if I have chugged the amrita juice.

    I love this game.
