Warrior of the West Cuirass is a Medium Torso Armor in Nioh 2. Torso Armor protects the torso of the player and can have varying degrees of quality and level, just like Weapons. In addition, they can provide Toughness bonus, physical, and elemental protection to your character. Medium Armor provides a balance between protection and agility. Toughness makes you deplete less Ki when Blocking, so if you wish to Block more often, consider wearing Armor that provides more. Usually the heavier Armor the better.
Warrior of the West Cuirass Description
A thick, one-piece breastplate based on a foreign design, lacquered in the Japanese style with the same moon motif as the helm. The left shoulder features a relief that complements the chest design. The moon ornamentation symbolizes the divine protection of the Bodhisattva Marici. It is part of a traditional armor set once owned by the great Tachibana Muneshige, revered as the unrivaled champion warlord of the western realms. Muneshige rose to fame fighting under the Otomo clan, and continued to rack up victories in Kyushu against the Shimazu, Kato, and Kuroda clans after joining Toyotomi Hideyoshi's forces, clad in this distinctive armor all the while.
