Put a cat on your head with the Scampuss Hat Smithing Text
You might finish all of the Tengu’s Disciple DLC missions in one go, but Nioh 2‘s newly-added Dream of the Demon mode is going to be a weeks-long time-sink for many of us. After hearing about the reward for clearing the base game on New Game++ difficulty, I’m committed: I’ve gotta see this through.
It’s exactly what it sounds like: a cat hat!
Another player, rileykard, says they got a Scampuss Hat from a Demon Parade Picture Scroll mission “where you get three Scampuss right at the start. After I completed the mission I could refashion into it.”
Cosmetic appeal aside, the Scampuss Hat’s special effect is Untouched Clay Bell of Reckoning. I love the idea of showing up to a boss fight with a cat on my head and a few more rolling behind me.
As for Dream of the Demon, it’s no walk in the park – at least not with my currently under-leveled build. The recommended player level for the first story mission, the Village of Cursed Blossoms, is 250. Funnily enough, I beat Gozuki and Mezuki no problem, but a random Gaki took me down. Savage.
Whether or not I ever hit 100% completion, I’m already stoked about my drops in DotD so far.
