Inosasao Description

Inosasao is an ancient boar that is said to have gained supernatural powers over its many years of living, its immense age apparent by counting the dwarf bamboo stalks that grow on its back.
Since the Jomon period, the wild boar has been worshipped as a symbol of childbirth and bountiful harvests due to its ability to produce many offspring. Others worship it as a symbol of the power of nature, its ferocious strength and sharp tusks reminding them how savage nature can be. While the worship of boars has become less common over time, several legends of boars who have come to the aid of humans remain.
One example is the tale of Wake-no-Kiyomaro, a nobleman of the late Nara period, who is famous for foiling the plans of the monk Dokyo, who tried tricking his way into the position of emperor. It is said that a boar saved Wake-no-Kiyomaro when


How to unlock Inosasao


How to use Inosasao

  • Guardian Spirit Skill is Inasasao appearing and charging forward with two baby boar at the side. Both the initial appearance and the the charge deal damage and human enemies getting hit by the charge will tumble.
  • The main draw to this spirit is the large damage reduction while attacking. Combined with Onryoki Soul Core and the Veteran's Armor, you gain a large amount of damage reduction, allowing you to be very aggressive for much less risk. Even as a secondary spirit, you can use the Soul core on the main and get a large benefit.
  • Charge Attack Boost is interesting, as not many Charge Attacks exist, and many of the ones that do don't care about and don't deal much melee damage. However, the ones that do are typically some of the highest damage skills the weapon has such as Twisting Spear, Focused Strike, Urgency, True and Through, and Fatal Thrust. Not to mention many dash attacks are very quick to do and have fast recovery for no damage loss, making them easy to fit in small openings for more damage. This is best used with the Spear and Tonfa, as they have several powerful and easy to use, high damage Charge Attack Skills.
