The Blue-eyed Samurai

Mission Start Text

Against all the odds, your heavy eyelids start to open. You feel a sensation, as though a malicious spirit is worming its way into your body.

It seems that someone has broken Otekemaru's seal.

Mission End Text

While you have been sleeping, I have been busy hunting yokai, but there's no end in sight.

To stem the tide we must cut them off at the source.

I don't know what caused you to awaken from your slumber, but I have a feeling it has something to do with whatever brought that foreign man William to this place. Shall we get going?

The Blue-eyed Samurai Walkthrough



For this mission, be sure you have made preparations. This mission will lead straight to a boss fight against William, the protagonist, and playable character of the first Nioh game.


The goal for this mission is to simply defeat him. William doesn't have that much health and can easily be punished if you attack him after his string of attacks. He also can switch between his katana and spear. And apart from that, he can call forth his Guadian Spirit: Saoirse to use water type attacks. Keep running around him and maintain a safe distance to avoid getting hit by the spear. Although you can easily deplete his health and stamina, his attacks are quite fast and strong which can potentially kill you if you are caught. Since you are fighting a human boss, using weapon skills that can knock off a human off-balance will benefit here. Take the Kusarigama, for example, if you reel William in, this will cause him to trip, and he'll be vulnerable to your attacks while he recovers. To learn more about this boss, click here


Once his health reaches about 40%, a cutscene will then trigger revealing an unexpected twist. Before the cutscene ends, you'll also obtain William's guardian spirit, Saoirse. Make sure to pick up the loot before leaving the area. This completes the mission.
