First Samurai Cuirass is a Medium Torso Armor in Nioh 2. Torso Armor protects the torso of the player and can have varying degrees of quality and level, just like Weapons. In addition, they can provide Toughness bonus, physical, and elemental protection to your character. Medium Armor provides a balance between protection and agility. Toughness makes you deplete less Ki when Blocking, so if you wish to Block more often, consider wearing Armor that provides more. Usually the heavier Armor the better.
First Samurai Cuirass Description
A piece of armour that protects the chest area. It resembles similar armour of Chinese design, comprised of small iron platelets held together with leather straps and studs. The fine, detailed decorations are the scralet cloak that hangs from the back add to the dignified image associated with a true general.
Part of a set of armour made to replicate that of the legendary general of the early Heian period, Sakanoue no Tamuramaro. A loyal retainer who was made supreme military commander, one of his many notable feats was subduing the great yokai Otakemaru. Seeny by many to be the idealised image of a samurai, it would not be an exaggeration to consider him the spiritual progenitor of the warriors who came after him.
