Kusarigama Skills

The Kusarigama has the greatest range of all Nioh weapons, while not lacking anything in terms of damage, yet reckless swinging can leave you wide open.
The Kusarigama offers a good number of buffs which may be triggered manually, while its Skill tree incorporates bonuses to close range damage.
