Dweller is an Enemy in Nioh.

 

Enemy Description

"Dwellers are humans turned into Yokai by the foul miasma in depths of a mine. There were objects of loathing and terror for miners, and legends about them circulate wherever a mine with a long history is found. Their grotesquely altered forms inspire instinctive revulsion in all who can bear to view them."

"The pickaxe carried by many Dwellers is the last trace of their former lives as miners. The sight of a Dweller swinging its pickaxe wildly as they attack in unsettling enough, but one without its axe is even more terrifying. In this state they abandon all pretense to humanity, scrabbling on all fours and leaping at intruders like savage beasts."

 

Combat Information

  • When standing, these creatures are fairly slow and only modestly defended.  Avoid their slow frontal attacks, and make use of combos.  One strong combo with a powerful weapon is typically enough to kill a Dweller.
  • Once a dweller falls to the ground they become much more dangerous, with faster attacks and movement as well as two distinct grabs.  These grabs are probably their most effective offense, causing either poison or a significant amount of damage.  Avoid being mobbed, and use weapons that hit low to avoid passing harmlessly over their heads.
  • Some Dwellers are capable of throwing either rocks or Kayaku-Dama.  These can usually be finished easily with a bow, and will revert to grab attacks if the player gets close.
  • If a dweller misses its grab attack it may fall over, opening it up for a final strike.  This usually does not kill the dweller, but it deals enough damage to quickly clean up with a low combo.
  • Be careful passing around corners: Dwellers are often placed in blind spots, where they can initiate battle with a dangerous grab attack.
  • Blocking is largely ineffective against Dwellers.  Their pickaxe attacks are blockable but are also easy to sidestep, while blocking their grounded attacks runs the risk of being grabbed.  It is usually better to maintain some distance and strike when the Dweller misses a grab or pickaxe swing.
  • The Dwellers have no area attacks to speak of.
  • Ninjutsu is largely a waste against Dwellers.  Their health and longevity are too low for statuses to be worthwhile and they're immune to poison anyway.
  • Don't be afraid to exhaust your ki if it means the death of a Dweller.  They're usually found solo or adequately separated from other foes, and standing Dwellers don't have any particularly fast attacks to follow up with.  Grounded Dwellers, however, can swipe fairly quickly, and should be engaged with more caution.
