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 as  Mission Rewards.
  • 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.
  • Scrolls that have these enemies will not be listed, but they are valid ways of getting these smithing texts if you have one, and typically the most efficient way to do so unless that boss has a duel mission.

Farming

Smithing Text have a very very low drop rate , usually in the order of 1% or lower under normal circumstances.

  • The best way to get smithing texts from enemies is to stack Item Drop rate or equivalent effects and to use the Hunter's Blessing. Luck is also a determine factor.
  • Avoid using Equipment Drop rate as this will actually lower the chances for a drop.
  • Don't forget Soul Cores can also have Luck and Item drop bonuses.
  • You can actually roll both Item Drop  and Item drop vs Yokai (or the Human equivelant) on the same equipment albeit rare and very tedious.
  • To increase time efficiency when farming a boss, as even the best set up can take 100's of attempts is simply pray at the last shrine before fighting the boss. Beat the boss and reload if you do not get the smithing text. when you get the text exit the mission to save. 
  • The Itokuri Guardian Spirirt is a prime choice for farming these due to its high luck bonuses.
  • The NG+ or Difficulty Level has no effect on drop rates. so feel free to take you Dream of the Demon character into Dream of the Samurai and make life alot easier.

        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.

          This is not full list, also will be better to have order like in game (I mean like in "Forge" section and maybe table with categories)

              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.

                I got the Bonepile Spear text off the Kamaitachi in “The High Spirited Demon” in case anyone needs it and are having a hard time getting it from an Enki.

                  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.
