Set Bonuses in Nioh are found on select Weapons and Armor through out the game. Wearing pieces of these Sets will provide numerous bonuses to the player.

  • Note A: You must meet the requirements of a piece of Armor in order to get the bonuses to work.

Below is a list of known Sets that confer bonuses in Nioh. These effects can increase in effectiveness depending on the level of the armor pieces used.

  • The Yasakani Magatama will allow you to lower the armor set bonus requirement by 1.
  • Weapons and Armor that otherwise don't have set bonuses, may acquire set bonuses if the items are Ethereal (requires Way of The Wise)
  • These Ethereal Set Bonuses appear at random on weapons and armor without inherent Set Bonuses, and don't follow any particular pattern or order.
