Kenmyoren is one of the Sword Weapons in Nioh 2. The Kenmyoren, like all swords, has a good balance between offense and defense, and is a good choice if you aren't sure what sort of Enemies you will be facing. Swords also scale very well with the Heart stat, so if your Build has high Heart, consider using this Weapon type.
One of Otakemaru's three treasured swords. According to the Tales of Tamura, the three Sanmyo blades were bestowed upon Otakemaru by the king of the demigods, and each blade was said to be capable of mowing down a thousand men in a single swing. The Kenmyoren houses the power of ressurection, which is the reasoning behind Otakemaru's return after his initial defeat. It is said that this led to him being sealed away in Uji when he was eventually subdued again.
