No matter how good you are, you are going to take some hits during the very tough encounters that await you, and restorative items are essential to your success. Here is how to get more elixirs in Nioh 2.
How to Get More Elixirs in Nioh 2
Elixirs are the most basic, and essential, restorative items in Nioh 2. They function more like Blood Vials in Bloodborne than Estus in Dark Souls; that is to say, they are single-use, and you are going to want to grind for them wherever possible.
Enemies will drop them, and they can be found in chests and by looting bodies, although the chances of finding them are completely random.
You are able to hold a maximum of eight Elixirs at any one time, with any more you find being transported to a larger stockpile in your storage. Any time you rest at a Shrine, your stock will be refilled.
At the Shrine, there is a sub-menu called Make Offering, and here there are a variety of ways to ensure you are always fully stocked with these essential restoratives.
Firstly, you can make an offering to the friendly little Kodama who guard the Shrine. By donating unwanted gear, you will, in turn, receive Divine Rice, which is a currency you can use in the Kodama Bazaar. There is also a chance you will earn Elixirs simply through the act of donation.
Next, you can receive a Kodama Blessing for a small fee, and the one we want is called the Healer Blessing. This will increase the base chance of finding Elixirs when defeating enemies or opening chests by 5%, and increase it by an additional 5% per Healer Kodoma you guide back to the Shrine.
Lastly, you can simply purchase Elixirs from the Kodoma Bazaar in exchange for Divine Rice.
So make sure you have the Healer Blessing active, offer up any of your unwanted gear in exchange for Divine Rice, and then purchase Elixirs from the Kodama Bazaar. In addition to the Elixirs you will pick up, you should have no issues maintaining a healthy stockpile.
Nioh 2 is a fantastically designed game, and its many interlocking systems reward you for interacting with them, and they all synergize well.
