Jun 04, 2021
Hello guys, welcome back to a new video in today's Neo Tube video guide. We're going to do something a little different, so after playing for about 200

hours

and earning the platinum trophy again, I was pretty ready to move on to the next one. game coming out, but to be honest, this game is quite difficult, especially if you are going to do it without summons, maybe if you are a fan of Dark Souls and there are so many little

tips

and

tricks

that I learn. On this trip I thought I would do a little

tips

and

tricks

video before moving on to the next one.

Some of these tips will be small things. Maybe you

should

play close to one until the end. You may

know

that some things are completely new to Neo. too and I think there's probably something in there for everyone so yeah let's get started so I thought I'd start with some of the things you can do with the menu. The first thing is incredibly basic, by far the most basic on this list. A lot of people come here from Dark Souls or that type of game and automatically think that in this whole genre of Soul type games you can't pause the game, that's not the case in Neo 2, so once you open the menu. all you have to do is press the options button and this will actually pause the game.

I feel like a lot of people didn't realize this and because obviously the game doesn't stop once you open the menu if you just press the options button. then the game will be paused and you can go and do whatever you want. The following things will also be little things you can do in the menu, one of these being specifically useful at the end of the game, maybe after the game, once you're farming. or picking up specific things or you're looking for something very specific, you can go to the basic menu of the game and you can choose the rarity of the weapons that you can pick up, so if you don't want to fill your box with maybe yellow weapons or blue weapons and armor and also fall into this category, you can actually change them, so maybe you can only choose exotic or superior weapons, this is very useful, as I said in the later post, where you don't really care about lower rarity weapons. and armor, this only counts for weapons and armor if it's like an item, obviously like elixirs or something, you're still going to pick up any type of item, this only applies to weapons and armor, another cool little trick you can do. in the menu, especially if you're looking for a ninja build with a lot of ninjutsu or a mage build with a lot of magic, you can make it so that there are more than two quick select menus for your shortcuts for your spell elements and things like that.

In fact, I can make there be up to four different menus. These are the menus at the bottom left of the screen with all the items and spells. Obviously, I don't recommend doing this if you're not looking for those settings because it can get pretty confusing now on the opposite side of things. I wish there was an option to have just one quick select menu if you're someone like me who doesn't really use a lot of items and sometimes you can accidentally press r1 plus the directional button and it changes the quick select menu while you don't have your elixirs and then you'll panic here and then you press the elixir button and it's not there, you can actually equip elixirs in both menus at the same time so I definitely recommend it.

By doing this, it's possible for the menus to be equipped with elixirs with the same button so if you accidentally switch to the other quick select menu you'll use the elixir anyway so the next things we're going to talk about in this video are about the skill tree now neo2 has a pretty skill tree great, some skills work in ways that others don't and I just wanted to clear up a few things here that people may not realize, especially early in the game, so first things first on the skill. tree, if you press square, this is very useful because then you can see all the skills in a menu type layout and I just find that it's a lot easier to navigate, it's not necessarily in the best order, but it's still a lot easier to navigate. check out the video clips here and all that, this may just be a personal thing but I definitely prefer that with this layout you don't scroll through the entire skill tree looking for the one you want because at least in the menu you can see the names of everything so Let's start with some skills that I would choose no matter what build I choose, so let's go to the samurai skill tree.
What we are looking for here is the running water ability. This basically what this does is you

know

how to press r1 to do a key post and this will either restore your stamina or hold our equivalent where the blue bar is, so sometimes this is a pretty risky move because you're probably facing an enemy and you are waiting for it and you are probably about to get here, so with the running water skill you can do the key pose by dodging, so just quickly press the X when dodging and at the same time you will get your key.
Obviously it uses a bit of stamina, so you don't recover as much as r1. I definitely recommend using the r1 if you are 100 percent sure you will be safe. The good thing about this is that it also breaks the yokai realm, so of course in addition to dodging, you are also going to break those that are definitely useful and overall it is a very good thing to have once you have this and use it, it will be difficult. To play without it, just keep in mind that you will have to learn it for each stance, there is one for high stance, one for medium styles and one for low stance, they all do the same thing, but they are just different running variables. water, the other thing that I definitely recommend picking up from the skill tree is that we're going to go to the magic skill tree and pick up at least one type of talisman, but it would be electric fire, because even if we're not going to age out to have those two or three talismans every time we rest at a shrine will only give us a welcome boost to add damage so now let's talk about the different skills in the skill trees so obviously we have the normal ones that you just level up using skill points that you have earned with locks of hair or by using a specific type of weapon, then we have these that after unlocking we will see two yellow arrows above basically what they are is that you can simply upgrade them, it won't really change your destiny, they will just improve the effect below.
I'm going to go for these green ones, so once you've learned a green one, these don't work the same as the others, we go to the skill customization menu and here we will look for a skill that we have unlocked and we have put on our character, we will press square and here we will see. The list of green skills that are available to improve this skill that already exists, so they are little additional skills that you can add to other skills that we have learned, they are definitely very useful and you

should

definitely go check them out next.
You have the mystical skills, these are the ones with the kanji letters, the Japanese characters in the circle, so you can only learn them once you have completed the final dojo training mission for each specific category, for example for the sword what will you have. to go and do the final dojo trainer quest for the sword, these are not unlocked until the end of the game, you can say it's the last one or the one specific to the mystic arts because these will require you to have a 120k proficiency with it . I think excluding onion magic and ninjutsu, which requires between two hundred and two hundred and fifty thousand, and that's how you know that those are the specific quests that will unlock these mystic arts, which are some kind of more powerful than you passive.
You can also equip yourself in the skill customization menu and, finally, in the skill tree we will find these types of slots for MD. Now they may look like they're empty because that's all there is, there's nothing else in the skill tree, but they actually are. empty for a reason, these are hidden skills, so how you unlock hidden skills is a bit of a lucky process. You will have to farm specific enemies or specific bosses to obtain their abilities. Now I don't know the exact delivery location. for all of them, but some of them drop from the bigger bosses and a lot of the skills you get from them are skills you can watch them use in that battle too, so yeah, you'll just have to farm bosses. until they drop their skills, they will automatically be added to the collection, so that's all I have in the skill tree.
Next let's look at some game mechanics, so we start with something pretty simple, sometimes you use and say a katana and Having its familiarity maxed out now is almost certainly not going to deal more total damage than a new katana you pick up, even if The new katana has a higher base damage than the one you are currently using. but just having the familiarity at maximum will cause more damage and you don't really feel like switching to the other one because you will lose some damage for some time, so there is actually a way to fix this, all you have to do is do is equip the new katana which will eventually be higher than the one you are currently using in your secondary slot and what this will do is that even if you are not using it, continue using the one you are using, this will also increase familiarity with your weapon secondary.
I think it's a little slower than it looks if you have it equipped, but it's definitely a way around it. an item process, the next thing I'm going to talk about is probably something you already know, but in case you haven't paid, maybe close to one you probably don't know, but we'll talk about imitations and counterfeits. walls, so like most Dark Souls type games, which are going to be fakes and fake walls, they work a little bit differently in this game. I really like how they work, they're pretty unique mechanics, so let's quickly recap how to dodge. a mimic safely and how to take down a fake wall safely, so four mimics, what we're going to have to do is make sure we count the number of gold bands on the side of a mimic, if it's free, that means It's going to be a mime, what we have to do is use the whistle and think in front of it and then the mime will emit an emotion.
Back to us, now we have to copy that and although if done successfully, the mimic will just disappear and leave that whole loop. if not you'll actually have to fight him, you still get the loop that you'll have to fight a copy of yourself. It's also worth mentioning that if you take too long to select a pit, it will attack you now as well. For the fake walls, the way they work is that we are going to have to select a specific color of ammo. Now he is looking for just a specific one. You have two chances, so the ads are pretty good on our side, however, there is a way to increase our odds even more, so if you're lucky there should be a grave next to the fake wall and we'll just jump into the grave. and this will tell us how he died, so say the tomb tells us. that he died using a yellow mode, that means that the correct mode will already be red or blue and that also means that we now have a hundred percent chance of not screwing up the last bit of gameplay mechanics he wanted. talking is something I wasn't quite sure how to explain and with the way I'm going to explain it it probably doesn't sound like good advice, but I can guarantee you that in very specific moments of very specific enemies They are very useful now, a lot of people just use different stances because of the way attacks work, maybe they prefer the slower, higher damage type of things.
Some people just prefer this low stance because of the bps speed and this can also change depending. what weapon are you using and so on. Now I just wanted to talk about how important different types of dodges are with different types of stances, so obviously if we have a high stance, we can line up and then we have to do it. Wait a little bit compared to the other positions, at least to get in another line. Now these rows have augmented iframes, but they can be done quite slowly. If we go to the middle stance, we have two opportunities, and this is the one I like.
Use it personally, if you have tapped the button once it will take a side step and then if we tap again we will make a row and we have the low stance where we can constantly side step in a very very fast manner. mail, but these will have less iframes now, this is all great, but there are very specific moments in the game where it is very important to side step or file, there are actually attacks that can only be dodged very specifically with This type of dodge, for example, this boss here, the one who's charging, I can't remember his name right now, but you can basically roll under his legs and this will stop him from charging any further, since his orbit is pretty important in this. boss, but if we use it, for example, in a low position, this is really impossible to do, we can only dodge it and most likelycontinue attacking, so obviously against this very specific attack it is important, a role you can't get away with also in mid position if you are fast enough to double tap the blind after the side step, but in Generally a direct role from the top position would be very, very good.
Here there are also obviously attacks that we can only dodge properly with side steps in the low stance. Repeated size because obviously they can be done, all of this can't really be done with a very, very fast mouth, so if there is an attack that is a very fast attack that hits you quickly and you're trying to push it away, but it's not working and you're probably complaining in game saying this is literally impossible to dodge, try going to a low position and try spamming and these side steps, and I'm I'm sure you do a bad job of escaping and that's pretty much what I wanted to talk about, I'm not sure if I gave the best explanation for that, I just wanted to talk about how important different types of dodges are, four very specific enemies, I'm not telling you to like it, look how it goes. changing for each enemy encounter, in fact I only changed for free or for very specific attacks from very specific enemies, but I'm just trying to say that if you can't physically dodge an attack with one of these dodge types, then try the Other, I'm sure it will probably work, so aside from all of this, there are two or three things that I would like to talk about that I thought were interesting or maybe people don't really know what they do, so the first thing I'm going to do is De what I'm talking about is that towards the end of the game you'll probably come across some weapons or even armor sets that have a little more one in addition to the level and some people have been asking me what they are for and what purpose.
What you want to do with these is take them to the blacksmith and you should see a new option that says remodel, so what you can do with the armor and weapons has the bonus that you can transform them into an alternative version of themselves in which As for weapons, you can make them scale with other stats that aren't normally scaleable and that's for the army, you can probably sacrifice similar levels that you need to level up to get the special effects, but you get more defense. basically alternate versions of that weapon or armor that you normally can't find in the whole world, which is cool and the last tip or little tip I wanted to talk about is how many elixirs you'll get when you rest at a shrine, so you usually get free elixirs to rest at a shrine and the way you can increase this is literally by finding Kodama, so Kodama are these little green guys.
I'm sure you found four out of every five that you find in the region you go to. Gain an additional elixir when you rest at the shrine for a total of eight. Now just remember that if you enter a new region it will obviously reset and be free again, and it's worth mentioning every time too. If you change regions you will have to choose your Kodama blessing again now if you go to a new region and you only have three elixirs this is actually still a way to get eight now all you have to do is respawn in the shrine after dying or whatever you want to go to a deep bazaar of Adama now here you can use your divine rice to get up to eight elixirs so this is definitely very very important especially if you are going to enter a new region in the one you are trapped in. to a boss or something and you miss having those eight elixirs, so you can still get them and divine rice is pretty common in this game, especially if you're offering things to Kodama.
I basically went through the entire game constantly and 999 divine rice so I was constantly taking elixirs and yeah guys that's pretty much all I have for this video. There are already tons of tips and tricks I could give in this video, but I thought I'd give you the ones that might not be so good. well known to the community at large and yeah guys if you have any more tips and tricks you would like to share with the community be sure to leave them in the comments. I'm sure it will help someone and that being said.
