Grants you the Versatility status enhancement when you hit an enemy with an Active Skill.
Versatility is a Special Effect in Nioh2. Versatility grants a stacking melee damage bonus based on how many different active skill deal damage to an enemy. Special Effects can be acquired from Weapons, Armor, Accessories, Soul Cores and Guardian Spirits and can be either fixed or selected from a random pool.
- For every different active skill you use on enemies, you gain one stack of Versatility. Each stack is a 6% melee damage multiplier, with the ninth and final stack being 12%, for a total of a 60% damage multiplier. Each stack lasts for 45 seconds and cannot be refreshed.
- This bonus applies before damage is calculated, so any active skill done while at zero stacks will still gain 6.0% more melee damage.
