Saoirse is a Guardian Spirit in Nioh 2. Guardian Spirits can be selected on the Shrine menu and each provides a different boost to the player. Activate Yokai Shift by pressing △ + O (B + Y on Xbox/Steam controller) when the Amrita Gauge is full.
Aquatic guardian spirit that resembles the Merrow of Celtic legend, with feathered wings and a fish's tail. Saoirse can warn of impending danger and sense Amrita. She has been with William since he was a child, and is both friend and family to him now - or perhaps something more. Her name is pronounced "SEER-shuh" and means "freedom" in Gaelic.
How to unlock Saoirse
- Complete mission The Blue-eyed Samurai
How to use Saoirse
- The Guardian Spirit Skill is a slow startup single hitting attack the does moderate amounts of water damage and high saturation accumulation and Ki damage. The real value comes from the status effects afterwards: a divination talisman effect and an unusually powerful Pleiades effect that triples Amrita gauge charge.
- This is the crux of the usefulness of this guardian spirit - even if your Yokai Shift gets cut short it's entirely possible you can build it right back during the same fight, even through the cooldown timer.
