ENDGAME BUILD (PS4). This is a poison | ninjutsu | anima gain build, utilizing the Kusarigama as main weapon with Katana as secondary. In this video I discuss my favorite build to play in Nioh 2. Originally I had focused on Katana and ninjutsu (using the Flying Kato set). Towards late game, I made the change to poison, and slowly converted the build over to anima gain and Tengen. 00:17 character page, 02:11 set bonus, 02:53 build name, 03:15 Tengen mention and soul cores, 03:48 poison melee damage stacking and armor overview, 05:17 trinkets, 05:52 d-pad loadouts, 07:13 skill trees, 09:29 mission select and start, 10:27 boss 1, 11:27 boss 2, 11:55 boss 3, 14:11 second missions selection, 14:39 boss battles begin (chain bosses), 16:53 final boss dead, 17:59 final thoughts, 18:22 extended gameplay 1, 18:57 extended gameplay 2.
ENDGAME BUILD: This is a melee frost, condition overload build. In this video I am testing the differences between corrosive and viral damage on a melee weapon in the Simulacrum, after the big revised update 27.2.0, on level 135 corrupted heavy gunners. I also discuss my build. 01:19 warframe screen, 01:22 melee weapon mods, 02:14 enemy settings, 02:27 corrosive / cold test, 03:02 melee weapon mod swap, 03:39 viral / rad test, 04:36 corrosive / cold test (AI on), 06:03 viral / rad test (AI on), 10:02 corrosive / cold final test (AI on), 11:11 max status effect showcase for condition overload, 11:58 build overview discussion, 19:30 weird bug (might not be bug), 19:53 gun damage test, 22:27 launching enemies into another dimension, 25:06 closing remarks.
Conclusion: I will still run corrosive / cold and corrosive projection after testing. I think that viral is more of a contender now, and I can see situations where it might be better than corrosive. However, because I can double slot attack speed with corr/cold setup, melee feels much better running it. If I could achieve viral / heat while still maintaining the attack speed buffs it might be ideal (potentially from a new kuva lich weapon where the base element is different).
Changes to Arcanes: The recent patch prevents slotting 2 of the same arcanes (I originally had 2 magus elevates equipped on my operator, for the warframe heal). In the video I have both the elevates equipped still (bug). After unslotting one, I couldn't put it back on. I decided to switch the slot over to another arcane for testing, and it had GREAT results. I slotted in Magus Lockdown. This will be equipped on my operator in future videos.

Boring, un-aggressiveness finish to the game. Very low octane. I guess its OK to have one of these every other Sunday to relax a bit. Kick those shoes off, and take a seat by the camp fire and eat a day old chick-fil-a sandwich because they are only open on Saturday, and its Sunday.
