Understanding Nioh’s blacksmith

By far the most intimidating and complicated mechanic in nioh is the Forge interface. There’s a lot going on here. Some of them are quite basic, but there are so many options that it seems overwhelming. We’ll break it down into manageable parts below.



In the forge you will meet Senji Tome. Instead of choosing one of the Forge options, pressing the triangle to talk to him opens a few more options. “I want to know more” will ask Tomé to explain the mechanics of the forge. “I have a request for tome” if it is available you will earn loyalty points For example, visiting the blacksmith will allow you to request a reduction in the cost of the blacksmith or unlock the barbershop menu.

Buy and sell

Buying and selling allows you to do just that. You can sell your items, weapons, and armor for gold, or spend your gold on things Tome has to sell. Complete more missions to unlock more items.

Smithing turns all those materials you’ve gathered into usable gear. Because it is nioh, there is of course another level of complexity. Each of these collected materials has its own rarity rating. When you choose to forge something, you determine the rarity of the materials, which in turn affects the rarity of the item being crafted.

By default, all of your rarest materials will be selected. The probability that the counterfeit item falls within each rarity category is displayed at the top of the screen. In the above images, the number of rare or unique pieces increases Iron Kozane (if we had any) would increase the likelihood that the resulting armor would be rarer or better. The rarity would also affect the weapon’s special effects and defense multiplier.

Soul Matching is a way to upgrade your gear, and higher quality gear is better gear. Soul Matching works effectively by injecting higher tier gear into lower tier gear to enhance the latter. Powering up gear at the same or lower tier can still upgrade the original piece, but will not increase its tier.

In the image above, we’re polishing a level 17 Warlord armor with our level 16 plate armor. The result? Level 17 plate armor with a higher defense multiplier.

“Why don’t I just use the top level item?” you might rightly ask. Well, you can use Soul Match to take high-level weapons that you don’t have the skills or stats to use properly and boost them with low-level weapons that you’re already good with. You can do the same to take very heavy, high defense multiplier armor and feed it into lighter, less protective armor to boost stats without increasing the weight. (That’s what he uses it for the most, and you can see it in the image above.)


Special effects generally do not transfer from a higher level to a lower level. Some effects, marked with a special icon, are inherited, but only if you are maximally familiar with the item. You can see this icon in the image above right. High Attack Pause is denoted with the inheritable icon – if we were maximally proficient with this sword, High Attack Pause would be inherited by any lower tier weapons we feed it to.

To repeat

Refashion lets you change the look of your gear. This does not affect the item’s stats, only its appearance. Select the element you want to change and then how you want it to look.



If you ask Tome to unlock the hair option in the blacksmith, you can customize William’s appearance. (Up to a point. Don’t they cut your hair at the blacksmith?) When you first unlock it, you’ll have three new hairstyle options to choose from and some beards. Changing the way you look costs gold, but is there really a price to pay for fashion?



The special effects of an item, such as B. increasing the gold and amrita drop rate or increasing the defense against elemental damage are random. If you choose to reforge an item, you can spend it spirit iron shards to re-roll the dice. Traits with the lock icon on the left cannot be reforged.


Teardown allows you to disassemble a device into its components. You can use these materials to forge new items. The rarity of the item determines the rarity of the resulting materials.
