What Guardian Spirit To Choose In Nioh 2
At the start of Nioh 2 players can choose a Guardian Spirit guide. In this guide on What Guardian Spirit To Choose In Nioh 2, we break down the different strengths and weaknesses of each of the Guardian Spirits you can select from at the beginning of your Nioh 2 adventure.

What Guardian Spirit To Choose In Nioh 2

There are many Guardian Spirits in Nioh 2, each providing different bonuses to particular skills and attributes. There are three to choose from at the start of the adventure, we’re unsure whether they can be unlocked later but it’s very likely the other two can be still unlocked later in the game.

The Shark is the best spirit to choose for newer players. A higher defense and a good boost to life means you can take a few more hits as you’re learning the ropes and getting to grips with the combat system. The Wolf is the strongest of the three physically, having the highest attack stat and good bonuses to Final Blow and Melee Attack Ki Consumption, just be careful as they ca’t take as many hits as the other two. Finally, the bird, is the agile, speedier character. The bonuses are not as easy to work with but for more advanced players, the additional speed and Ki recovery allows for a lot of positional advantages.
