Nioh Leveling Guide to help you farm quick and easy Amrita which is required to level up your character in the game.

Similar to Dark Souls games, if you wish to level up fast in Nioh, you need a lot of Amrita – Nioh’s version of souls from Dark Souls games. Amrita is Nioh can be earned by almost everything i.e. killing monsters, completing objectives, offering items at a shrine, etc.

It goes without saying that Nioh is hard and death is always lurking around the corner. Keeping this in mind, you should never run around with large deposits of Amrita at your disposal and make a habit of using it to level up as much as possible.

Nioh Leveling Guide

In our Nioh Leveling Guide, we’ve detailed some of the best possible methods to earn huge amounts of Amrita during the early game.

How to Level Up Fast in Nioh

Before we begin, it’s important to learn one thing. As you continue to level up, the Amrita cost required to level up further continues to increase. For example, if it takes 100 Amrita to level up from Level 1 to Level 2, it might take 10,000 Amrita to level up from Level 60 to Level 70.

If you die with some amount of Amrita in your bank, you’ll lose all of it at the place of your death and will respawn at the last shrine you prayed at. You can obviously travel all the way to the place where you died and reclaim all the lost Amrita once again, but it’s not as simple.

The reason is: once you die, all the enemies in the world – excluding bosses and NPCs – respawn as well. Therefore, it’s important to remember that if you die while trying to retrieve your lost Amrita, you’ll lose them forever.

All things considered; it’s a good idea to spend your Nioh Amrita frequently unless you’re super confident in your abilities.

Nioh Level Up Fast Method #1
For this method, you need to defeat the boss in the Isle of Demon. Once you’re done, head over to the shrine near the hot spring and rest there. After leveling and healing up, head inside the room on the right-hand side.

In there, you should be able to find x3 yokai monsters. Simply kill all of them and earn around 1,200 Amrita in under a minute. Since the shrine is incredibly close to your location, rest at the shrine, and repeat the process.

As long as you’re doing everything right, you should easily be able to earn somewhere around 12,000 in under an hour which is huge in the early game.

Nioh Level Up Fast Method #2
For this method, you need to start Finders Keepers submission which is received from Kuroda Nagamasa and tasks you to find a sword called Heshi-Kiri-Hasebe from a cave under the Mountain of Nakatsu.

It’s a pretty straightforward submission which requires you to kill some regular yokai monsters. However, for the sake of leveling up fast, we’re not interested in regular monsters. Instead, we’re interested in monsters with glowing backs.

Usually, these monsters will make a run for it after seeing you, but if you manage to chase them down, you’ll get a hefty amount of Amrita as well as Gold. Moreover, these enemies drop valuable loot which can also be offered up at the shrine for even more Amrita.

The entire process should take you about 5-6 minutes and should yield around 50,000 Amrita for 5 tries. This is, once again, a pretty decent method for Nioh power leveling if you’re struggling with the early game.
