Notes & Builds
- This is the only strictly Kusarigama focused set in the game. Though the water sub theme might seem out of place it does work with water Ninjutsu, which also scales with dexterity, and with many Yokai Skills.
- At endgame, this is above average in terms of melee damage, especially on Whirlwind, but is held back when you fight Water resistant enemies, which are some of the more dangerous and common enemies you face.
