Notes & Builds

  • The first effect is very important for any Yokai Shift focused build, and the second can get you to Yokai Shift faster, though a Pleiades effect is generally preferred.
  • Melee Damage (Dark Realm) is too niche to rely on, and while Anima Bonus (Amrita Absorption) is nice to extend the use of Yokai Skills like Maelstrom, it's poor as a Anima Fill tool.
  • Combining with Magatsuhi's Grace will allow the endgame bonus effect to be live more consistently, but other set bonuses can produce the same amount of damage with more relevant passives.

      This set is amazing. The 10 second extended yokai shift is unbeatable. 15% amrita charge amazing. damage reduction 4%, hell yes. 12% melee dmg in dark realm = very nice vs bosses who always go into dark realm. Just amazing set.

      Id rather have this than other heavy sets. Best set

        Such a nice gear. Unfortunately it doesn't offer anything really special and has a GREAT ki comsumption (and Udoto sword doesn't have a great attack power as well)
