When you load up Nioh for the first time, you will see a couple of glowing green creatures wearing traditional Japanese hats playing around before starting the game. These are called Kodama, and they have a big part in Nioh’s gameplay.
What are Kodama?
Kodama are non-playable characters in Nioh. They are neither gods nor yōkai, but are sort of like nature spirits that live in trees as well as in man-made objects. They usually stay near shrines, but can get lost on occasion. During the game, if William encounters a Kodama and guides it back to a shrine, he will earn bonuses in exchange for some gold.
The bonuses, or blessings as they are called in the game, are as follows:
|Oracle Blessing||Increases the amount of Amrita (souls) earned||100|
|Swordsman Blessing||Increases the weapon drop rate||100|
|Warrior Blessing||Increases the armor drop rate||100|
|Healer Blessing||Increases the elixir drop rate||100|
|Healer Blessing||Increases the ammunition drop rate||100|
