Sloth is a Status Effects in Nioh 2. Sloth is a Status Ailment and slows down the movement and attack speed of enemies hit by that effect.
Movement and attack speed decreased.
- Significantly reduces the attack and movement speed of the target.
- This is similar to the Electrified effect, except stronger. They both combine to reduce movement speed if stacked on one target..
Ways to apply Sloth:
- This significantly reduces the targets ability to attack or dodge, allowing you to do offense basically unopposed.
- One minor disadvantage this poses however is that Burst Counters become more difficult to time; unless using a Brute Burst Counter (as that is an attack animation as opposed to a reaction-based counter like Feral or Phantom). Some i-frames from dodging also get lengthened; needing some minor adjustments in timing offensive attacks. These adjustments however are easily offset by the major advantages offered.
