Smithing Texts in Nioh 2 are rare and very valuable key items that allow the crafting of additional items at the blacksmith forge. Talk to the Blacksmith after obtaining a text and you will permanently unlock the ability to craft the equipment detailed in the text. This unlock is only valid for that specific character.

  • Most smithing texts are dropped by Bosses, some by random Enemies or found in Treasure Chests across the map. 
  • Please see Boss Skills for special skills dropped by bosses.
  • Some smithing texts, mostly for Dual Swords, use a different name for the item it unlocks, due to translation differences (For example, the Smithing Text for the "Wisdom Sutra Sword & Plane Cutter" Dual Swords refers to it by its untranslated name, "Daihannya Nagamitsu & Kannagiri"). On the table below such cases indicate the name used for the item in parenthesis.

      This page is in dire need of some reorganization. That said, it would probably take a lot of time and effort to do so. And from what I can expect, I don’t think this will ever happen. Considering that even the god damn armor-set page on this same wiki is still infuriatingly incomplete. I guess I can say whatever I want without anything to really happen in return. Also because on the boss page Maeda Keiji’s picture is still that of Maeda Toshiie, even though they’re not even remotely the same person. I guess not all wikis, dedicated to a single game, are created equally.

            Just to be clear... you don’t have to play in higher difficulties if you want certain blueprints. It doesn’t make any difference. You can just farm bosses on The Way of the Samurai. Otherwise it will just take much longer. You can farm blueprints in the lower difficulties just fine, the droprate doesn’t change.

                So there isn’t a page concerning the arts of combat so I’m just gonna dump my opinion about them here. There are not enough of them. Some weapons only have one whereas others have four (dual blades). And Its pretty unfair, not just in my opinion but in general. Take the sword for example, it has two arts of combat but one of them is just a really long stab. Which is fine if you wanted an ability with which you can close the distance with your enemy. But lets be honest, its just that move for the odachi but smaller. This is pretty underwhelming for me at least. And this goes for almost half of them. The droprate for these abilities is painfully low, it feels almost like torture even. And when you finally do get the one you were looking for, chances are that its a major letdown (axe: spirit storm). When I found out that arts of combat were an actual thing I was excited as hell and started grinding the bosses to get my first taste of this new thing. I was expecting flashy, extravagant, satisfying and worthwile attacks that you would want in an rpg. To say the least, I’m dissapointed. Here’s hoping the dlc’s will provide us with something absolutely amazing.

                    Farming in this game sucks sometimes I have 99,5 % of all Smithing Texts and the only text i missed is for Genno´s Hammer. I farmed William 100 times on Way of the Samurai and 120 on Way of the Strong with max Luck / Item droprate / Luckbringer Talisman and i don´t get it. Last week i saw a video on yt where someone farmed Otakemaru in coop on Way of the Strong and he drop the Smithing Text for Genno´s Hammer. I farmed Otakemaru 80 - 100 times on Way of the Strong and still no Text WTF -.-*

                      On NG+ and I've been farming the bosses 20x and still no smithing text, I'm sick of game designers pulling this extremely low drop rate in games like this! So not playing anymore.

                        What about Saisetsu-Shin Sake? I've heard you can get a smithing text for that or trade for glory. I've found neither so far

                          Otakemaru in Eye of the Beholder on NG+ drops about 2 - 3 smithing texts - weirdly enough, only when helping out as phantom; doing the mission myself did not yield any texts. Texts were of random weapons and armour sets. Just farming him got me from ~3ß% to 52% of overall smithing texts collected.

                            If you want to farm a specific smithing text, pray at the closest shrine to the boss. Then kill the boss, see whatever he drops. If the text does not drop, do not go forward. Exit to main menu. The game does not save if you kill a boss only if you finish the mission. Then load. You should be back to the shrine that you last visited and the boss will be waiting again for another try. Rince and repeat. When you find the text then you can end the mission and you will have it in the blacksmith.

                              Got the Warrior of the West's Honor and the The Crossed Sickles Set smithing texts from Shuten Doji with around 30 % item drop rate and hunter kodama blessing with Kodama bowl equiped. Took me around 6-7 tries. Hope this helps. He dropped other smithing texts for weapons as well.

                                Farming Imagawa Diehard mission so far got 1 skill drop called "punish the proud" for dual swords. got Masters Bow that goes to the Golden Boy set, and 5 other yokai weapons texts: Rotten Rope Cutter (kusarigama), Bonepile Spear (spear), Weathered Bone and Bleached Twig (dual swords), Seething Dragon (switchglaive), Barbarian's Hatchets (dual hatchets). And on a side note: the guy that wears the Wild Boar Crest Helmet, Okabe Motonobu, who is also in Imagawa Diehard (the axe weilder) drops the text for that head.
