If you are up against a difficult opponent or outnumbered with low life, it's best if you retreat to an area at which you can heal and escape. Hot springs are in these areas. They are typically hidden behind Nurikabe and have great healing properties.
Find hot springs and the maps and mark their positions, so you know how to get to them if you are in a hurry. A hot spring could literally be a lifesaver.
All over the map, you can find mimic chests. These are honestly annoying as you often of to go through defeating a whole armada of enemies to get killed by the mimic chest. There is an easy way to tell the difference between a mimic chest and the others.
Firstly, a normal chest has horizontal gold stripes on either side of it. The mimic chest is also the home to a spirit that deals damage to your character when released. If you stand in front of the chest and whistle, the spirit will move, and you will know if the box is a mimic or not.
Once you have completed the story mode, there is still a lot more you can do. For one, you can focus on building your character's skill level and leveling them up more. A great way of doing this is by focusing on soul-core farming in specific areas.
A great place to start when it comes to farming for soul cores would be “The Missing Gun” mission. Here you face bosses, both mortal. Giving you double the chances of getting a soul core.
Gaki are generally the first monsters you face in Nioh 2. For the most part, they are easy to deal with. But don’t underestimate them. Gaki have the ability to get stronger depending on what ability they use.
That's why it's best to kill the Gaki as quickly as you can. At first, they deal a little damage. As they get stronger, you might find yourself in a problematic situation.
If you are stuck in a difficult situation, such as being outnumbered, or you are faced with a difficult Yokai it helps to have someone or something fighting with you. If you interact with the blue graves you see around, you can summon an NPC based on the other characters in the game.
Choose characters that are most likely to complement your skill set. If you are using a bow, then get a character that is better in close combat.
Throughout the map, you are undoubtedly going to come across some enemies who are much stronger than you. For example, if you come across a 25ft horse who will kill you in literally 2 swings.
It would be best if you avoid these stronger areas by bypassing them. Try to face enemies that are easier to beat as you develop your character's strength. Once you are strong enough, you can turn back and face your stronger opponents.
