Notes & Builds

  • Despite being Heavy Armor, this set is relatively light; similar to Warrior of the East. This makes it easier to spend a little less on Stamina to get B Agility; and guarantees relatively high survivability.
  • [In Dream of the Nioh,] While it is possible to get Dual Swords with a starred Mystic Dyad effect or Scrolls with the same effect (in Dream of the Wise upwards), the ability to have Mystic Dyad as a set bonus is somewhat reliable while farming (as the Dual Swords Mystic Arts allow for either reduced Ki consumption or increased defense per attack; having both is very powerful even as a means to attain better gear).
  • Even early on, the Active Skill Ki consumption reduction is decent to have.
