Notes & Builds

  • This is a unique set focused on Yokai Shift, significantly increasing your duration, having a alternate way to increase the Amrita Gauge  and having the payoff of increased Yokai Ability damage once you are in Yokai Shift.
  • The Anima Charge bonus is low investment and easy to use with other Anima focused sets.
  • Come endgame it also gains an above average amount of Melee Damage with an easy to meat condition, as things like Reduced Movement also count for it.

    • An interesting build is to use this set but with only one weapon and the Yasakani Magatama. Then fetch the smithing text of the Udoto sword and forge it in Corruption. In this way we can inflict the corruption status on the enemies with the help of the souls core as reinforcements. The build is therefore focused on corruption, and you quickly gain amrita and anima.

        I really feel like someone mis-programmed this. The three weapons do Lightening, Fire, and Water dmg - why is the bonus for Corrupted instead of Confused?
