Dark Detonation is a Yokai Skill in Nioh 2. Dark Detonation is unlocked by attuning a Itsumade Soul Core to your Guardian Spirits, enabling you to perform this unique skill.
Dark Detonation Effects
You grow Itsumade's wings and create a Yokai Realm pool in front of you. You then set it to explode, doing a large amount of physical damage, Ki damage, and corruption accumulation, even against Yokai. You also do this to every other nearby Yokai Realm pool, giving this skill some of the highest damage potential available.
How to get Dark Detonation
- Attune: Itsumade Soul Core
Dark Detonation Notes & Tips
- You are left vulnerable for an extended period of time during this skill. The safest way to use this skill is to use an enemy Yokai's own pools against them, such as after a whiffed burst attack or from an enemy that just spawned or got up from being downed, while being safely far away. This is especially strong against enemies that create a large amount of Yokai realm pools themselves, such as Nue or ironically Itsumade.
- Combined with Yokai Water Pots or Spectral Swarm, this will allow you to create a bunch of Yokai realms before detonating all of them with this skill. Tatarimokke Soul Core also has the benefit of allowing you to absorb 4 yokai realm pools, getting back double more than double the anima you used combined with Itsumade Soul Cores and Devour Yokai Realms anima charge effect.
