  • Welcome to Nioh 2 trophy guide! Boy oh boy are we in for a treat! Nioh 2 is quite challenging game that is similar to Dark Souls games, but I like to call it Souls on steriods. It's more fast-paced and you gain diablo-type loot every few seconds. Let's start with this guide.

    Step 1 - Beat the game while doing as much as you can

    Nothing is missable.

    Main missions can be tough if you die a lot and don't gain as much levels as you need to. I suggest always killing enemies and collect your grave if you die before you die again. When you gain a level, spend your Amrita on Shrine to level up. All stats are good, I was focusing on Strength, Dexterity and Omnyo Magic - I was a Odachi/Dual Swords build.

    I suggest that you beat the main mission and all sub missions that you can - that will strenghten you just enough for beating the whole game.

    While doing the missions, focus on collecting Kodama's, hot springs and doing in-level mission trophies:

    Step to have in mind while you play to avoid grind

    You will need 120000 proficiency points with all types of your arsenal (it was 180k before 1.05 update). Use different weapons as much as you can while you play to get to that number, as you have 9 weapons plus Ninjitsu and Omnyo Magic which requires even more. When you raise your proficency, you need to beat the final Dojo mission for that weapon and then unlock Mystic Art Skill. Aim to raise Dual Swords first, as you need to clear all missions for one trophy and only that weapon at 120k is a requisite for the mission.

    To easily raise Ninjitsu and Omnyo Magic, level them up so you can carry more and often imbue your weapon with for example Poison (Ninjitsu skill) and Water (Omnyo Magic skill). It doesn't depend on which weapon type you imbue this, just do it often to progress with proficiency for those.

    Step 2 - Cleanup and hints

    You can always repeat what you've missed. Aim to play new game plus, which will raise your proficiency faster. On that playthrough, you need to finish certain number of missions to unlock regions (check bar at lower right when you are at the map overview).

    To check status of you in-level collectibles, select mission once and change tabs. This way you can check your hot spring status for that level, as well as the Ninja Locks etc.

    You Are Nioh
    Obtained all trophies.

    If you collect all other trophies, you will unlock this deserved platinum!

    Samurai of Legend

    The Beginning of a Samurai
    Reached level 10.

    You collect Amrita (your in-game EXP) as you kill the enemies, active Shrines throgh levels, consume Spirit Shards...When you do have enough, go to your Shrine and level up. You will reach level 10 very fast. Be sure to collect your grave if you die, before you die again - you lose what your grave carries (both souls and amritas).

    Full-fledged Samurai
    Reached level 100.

    You collect Amrita (your in-game EXP) as you kill the enemies, active Shrines throgh levels, consume Spirit Shards...When you do have enough, go to your Shrine and level up. You will reach level 100 probably by the end of the game if you do all the side missions and main missions. Be sure to collect your grave if you die, before you die again - you lose what your grave carries (both souls and amritas). 

    You can always repeat stronger levels and grind if you need to. But doing everything this game requires for platinum, you will for sure be way over level 100.

    A Weapon's Mind
    Listened to the innermost thoughts of a Yokai Weapon

    Yokai weapons are purple colored weapons that have "Imbue Corruption" as Special effect (you can also notice the Sentience bar under Familiarity). To get the trophy, you must use this kind of weapon (they are a drop from enemies, loot boxes etc.) and reach that Sentience awakening for a couple of times - until you learn all about the weapon. You fill the bar by attacking. 

    Just stick with one weapon for some time until this pops. You can check progress of your Yokai weapon under Amrite Memories (main menu, middle PS button), Background tab. I got the trophy with Dual Bloodstained Cleavers and when i unlocked 5th thought inside of that weapon.

    Burst Breaker
    Use the Brute, Feral and Phantom Burst Counters five times each to counter a Burst Attack

    Brute, Feral and Phantom are versions of your Guardian Spirit. You can distinguish them by the icon when you change them on the save point (Shrine). 

    What you need is to counter 5 times per type of Spirit. You counter enemies when they are about to hit you (but only when they use special "red" attack). In that moment, you need to counter by pressing R2 + Circle button. Each type is a bit different, so you will need to practice a bit, but in general this is very easy trophy.

    Match Made in Heaven
    Performed a Soul Match

    After you find Toyo on one of the game missions in the first world, you will be able to do different actions in the Starting Point (your home base in each world). One of those is Soul Match - you take one weapon and cross it with other to increase its level and get different buffs. Simply do that once and thats it.

    Latest Masterpiece
    Forged an Item

    After you unlock blacksmith in the first world, you will be able to Forge an item. For that, you will need certain items from different enemy drops or pickups. You only need to forge one weapon, armor or tool. It's really easy and very soon you should be able to do so.

    Remodelling Novice
    Remodelled a piece of equipment

    You need to finish "The Roaming Artistan" side mission in "Dream" world. After rescuing Toyo's grandfather, simpy enter Starting Point and Remodell option will now be available. By doing the mission mentioned above, you will also get the weapon you can remodel, so do it to unlock the trophy.

    Tea Connoisseur
    GRIND

    Apraised your tea utensils 50 times

    You can ocasionally gain a tea utensil. If you visit Hidden Teahouse (you unlock it a bit later in the story), you can appraise those. You need to get 50. I have 27 after 90h of playing the game. But, there is an easy method to farm them and it's by playing "The Refined Man of the Underworld" mission in Dawn region on Dream of the Strong difficulty.

    You can raise the drop rate by going to Starting Point, your Hut and placing ones you have. They can raise some stats; I prefer having all 4 that raise tea utensil drop rate the most. Good luck!

    Lover of Letters
    Displayed a calligraphy scroll in your hut

    A bit into the game you will unlock Hidden Tea House (you can enter from Starting Point - your base). You can trade your Glory points (you gain them by summoning enemies from RED graves in each level; and defeating them) for scrolls (you can change tabs with R1). Buy any scroll in the Haging Scroll Text tab and exchange 1000 glory points for it.

    Then go to your Hut (from Starting Point), Remodel Hut, Hanging Scrolls. Choose the one you bought and that is it.

    Trinket Triumph
    Used the Kodama Bazaar

    Shortly into the game you will unlock Kodama Bazzar option in your Shrine (where you level up and equip guardian spirits etc.). Simply go to Shrine -> Make offering option and Kodama Bazaar. You need to buy something (you use Amrita - money and Divine Rice which you get from all over the place). If you need some rice, you can offer some equipment and you will get some. I usually use this to exchange rice for potions.

    Teamwork
    Completed 10 missions with NPCs or as Expeditions with other users. (Does not include Acolytes. )

    This trophy requires you to team-up 10 times in 10 missions. During your hunt for all main story missions and side missions (which you need for some trophies anyway), you will team-up with many NPC's, simly speak with them or some of those join automaticaly. After 10th, it should pop. 

    You can also join Expeditions from your Shine and aid the others, but the first way will for sure cover your ground.

    Help Wanted
    Summoned an Acolyte from a Benevolent Grave 10 times.

    Acolytes are blue grave NPC's that you can summon. You need certain items to summon one - those drop mostly when you summon the red grave and kill the NPC. Usually I called blue ones to help me with the boss or hard parts of the game. 

    Easy trophy overall, you should be done with this on the beginning of the game.

    Twilight Walker
    Completed your first Twilight mission.

    When you beat main missions and some sub missions, you will unlock corresponding Twilight mission. They are the same missions, just harder. You can enter them from lower left corner of your screen when you are on map. Finish one to unlock the trophy.

    Sudama Swapper
    Exchanged gifts with a Sudama for the first time

    Sudama's are pink Kodama's. When you find one, drop a weapon and they will pick it up and give you same rarity one but different one. Do this once and that is it.

    Core Score
    Obtained your first Soul Core

    Every Yokai you kill have a chance to drop a Soul Core. This will happen quite fast. Just make sure to go back to shrine to actually obtain it. If you die and don't take your remains before you die again, you will lose the Soul Core and you will have to kill the Yokai again to get it.

    Friend to the Kodama
    Obtained a Kodama's Soul Core

    Kodama Soul is a rare drop from Sudama's when you drop them a soul core for them to give you items in return. By giving them some soul core, you can expect Kodamas soul core in exchange. 

    First make sure to receive Yamabushi Blessing from the Shrine to increase Soul Core drop rate.
    The Viper's Sanctum mission in Awakening region contains 2 Sudama's quite close, so farm them there. Simply enter the mission, try to get the soul, if no soul dropped use divine branch fragment to return from level and repeat. Just have in mind that using the divine branch fragment makes you lose all Amrita.
    When you have the core, do not die and purify it on the shrine.

    NOTE:
    If you can't drop any soul, speak with Sudama and then you will have the option!

    Soul Searcher
    Obtained all Soul Cores

    Every Yokai you kill have a chance to drop a Soul Core. If you die and don't take your remains before you die again, you will lose the Soul Core and you will have to kill the Yokai again to get it. You will need to get all 49 Soul Cores.

    Nioh 2 - All Soul Cores Guide

    Fuse it or Lose it
    Fused any Soul Core until it reached rank 9

    Go to your Shrine -> Manage Souls Cores -> Soul Fusion. Select some soul and add another to raise the soul level of the first one. Do this until you level up selected soul core to level 9. It should be fairly easy when you record 4th world, it takes like 2-3 upgrades to get there.

    Seasoned Traveller
    Discovered 10 hidden items on the map

    When you are on the map overview, try focusing your pointer on areas around missions. Sometimes it will change cursor color to red, which means you can harvest the item underneath. Confirm and you will discover it. This is very easy due to many regions, so just aim to find 10 items and that's it.

    Let There Be Light
    Dispelled every instance of the Dark Realm in the main missions

    Dark Realm is that veil of grey color which is purified by defeating certain Yokai when inside of it. You need to dispel all of them in all main missions to unlock the trophy, nothing else. Some are required to even pass the mission, some are optional.

    NOTE:

    To check status of you in-level collectibles, select mission once and change tabs. This way you can check your hot spring status for that level, as well as the Ninja Locks etc.
