Usura-Hicho Description

This striking guardian spirit is as cold as it is beautiful. Its followers swear that venerating it will protect you from ice and snow-related disasters. Others believe that the Usura-Hicho is a manifestation of the souls of people who have lost their lives to grief or cold. 


How to unlock Usura-Hicho


How to use Usura-Hicho

  • Yokai Shift: Phantom
  • The Guardian Spirit Skill is around ten butterflies flying a short distance in front of the player. It rapidly deals a large amount of Water Damage and Accumulation. Best used against  wider enemies to maximize the amount of hits. This is the second best Guardian Spirit skill for (Consistent)  pure Water Damage.
  • This spirit is mainly useful for Water Damage Builds. It has little going for it if you don't care for the water damage, as while the Ki damage bonus is nice, Yumehami is better for that purpose, and ditto for dodge Ki consumption and Kurama Tengu. The life recovery effect has poor scaling as your life total increases, and it is one of the Guardian Spirits with the lowest attunement limit.
