Yeah, that dude does some serious damage if he grabs you. And that grab is so fast.
I played the first 3 levels of the Underworld. I enjoy it a lot more than the Abyss was in Nioh 1. I do wish you could instantly go to the boss, instead of having to find at least one Kodama, but that is a minor issue.
I’ve been trying to get one piece of gear, which would give me another 30% damage, but I haven’t been lucky enough to get it yet. Then, once I get that piece I was going to swap my second weapon to a corruption fist (claw) and then start swapping from purity to corruption weapon in order to consistently apply confusion to mobs. But I need to that one piece of gear in order for me to get this going and it just isn’t dropping.
Not sure how much more I’m going to play, I feel like I’m getting close to having my fill. Really great game.
