Amrita Information


Amrita is Nioh's version of experience points that you collect from doing myriad things throughout the game. You can use Amrita to level up William or your Guardian Spirit at a Shrine.

  • Amrita is obtained by virtually everything the player does in game; as mission rewards, from defeating enemies, opening chests, and can even by collected by destroying crates and jars found throughout missions. Furthermore, upon reaching and praying at a Shrine, the player will automatically "offer" their equipment, and receive Amrita as a reward.  If you die, you will lose all your Amrita and respawn back at the last Shrine at which you prayed. However this lost Amrita can be recovered if the player successfully reaches the place of their death and touches their Guardian Spirit - which will be clearly visible. 
  • Note: If you die along the way to retrieve your Amrita from the place your Spirit is guarding, you will lose both the Amrita gained on the way there as well as that which you had upon your initial death. However, your Guardian Spirit will return to the last shrine you prayed at along with you.
  • The Amrita counter in the lower right corner of your HUD will turn gold if you have enough Amrita to level up.
  • Acquiring Amrita will fill the Amrita Gauge found in the top left corner of the screen. Upon filling this gauge the player will be able to activate their equipped Living Weapon
  • Amrita acquisition can trigger various special effects found on armor and Guardian Spirits. These effects are triggered by "Amrita blips", and their power may increase with the amount of Amrita blips, but not with the amount of Amrita acquired.

      Trying to update this wiki. If anyone reads my comments and has specific ideas or suggestions as to how to improve individual pages, let me know in the comments and I'll do my best. I am a new player so it may take some times for me to unlock a lot of the content that requires an update.

        Fun fact: There actually is an Amrita multiplier that makes the enemies wield more of it as long as the amount carried on person has passed a milestone.

          It's been over a year since the game was released and this is seriously all there is on Amrita? No lore, no assistance for farming, just some bullet-point notes that don't even explain their points or link any further?

            I was playing a meeting on the other side mission, I died. After dying I had Sariose appear on my loading screen, but I had the paired raiken. I my spirit was automatically returned to me, but ALL my amrita was gone. I never died without having my spirit. What in the world happen?
