Notes & Builds

  • The Reduced Attack effect makes this arguably the best defensive set in the game, as it reduces enemy melee damage by 30%. This is easy to apply and with the familiar spells all you need to do is stand near an enemy for half a second to apply it, allowing you to debuff entire rooms quickly. Bosses growing resistance to effects that wear off on them will not be a factor with multi hitting Onmyo Magic. This also helps other players, acolytes and NPC's to survive, so it's great as a Co-op tool.
    • The ability to potentially have it applied all the time also mitigates the caveat of the bonus in that it is weaker than the actual Devigorate Talisman (Devigorate Talismans reduce attack damage by 40%).
  • Damage Bonus (Onmyo Magic Power) is global and applies to all damage dealt, though it isn't much higher than what you would get on a Black Fox Mask or Scroll effect. It is however possible to stack this bonus by having either of these equipped; as the set piece does not have a headpiece.
    • It is however advisable to run a different armor piece and have the set Odachi equipped when going for this; as it is highly likely to fall to B toughness if the 4 armor pieces and Black Fox Mask is equipped.
  • The "Transform Bonus (Stat)" (available in Dream of the Wise) can be taken advantage of by this set; by inheriting/rolling it on the Odachi set piece. Given that the set is best suited for weapons or builds scaling with Magic and/or Courage (e.g. Switchglaive, Splitstaff, Hatchets) and some Onmyo magic usage, Transform Bonus will mitigate the latent disadvantage of the Odachi scaling from a significantly different stat; allowing it to be usable as a secondary or even primary weapon.
  • The Empowered Onmyo Magic the set piece gets in Dream of the Nioh is not that lower in the attack enhancement compared to The Honor in Harmony; making this set somewhat more viable than the latter unless more Active Skill Ki Damage/increased damage on Onmyo Magic hit is preferred. This bonus also has great synergy with the damage bonuses, making recovery of Onmyo items significantly easier to manage.
