Tea Connoisseur
Bronze Image PS

Tea Connoisseur
Appraised your tea utensils 50 times.

To acquire a tea utensil you need to defeat high level enemies such as bosses / yokai, there is a much fast way of doing this however.

If you go to the Dawn region, there is a mission here called The Refined Man of the Underworld, this will see you face off against 4 enemies, 1 Gaki, an Enki, then Gozuki followed by Mezuki.

This mission is one of the best in the game for time>amrita, there is also a guaranteed drop of a tea utensil from Mezuki, simply play this mission until you have 50 tea utensils (you’ll earn buckets of amrita along the way as well which is always helpful).

Keep farming The Refined Man of the Underworld and appraising the tea utensils at the teahouse, I did this in blocks of 5, if you are a couple over, the worse you’ll have is some extra amrita and loot from the mission.

After the 50th tea utensil has been appraised, your Trophy will unlock.

There are plenty of opportunities to get this trophy as you make your way through the game, and to make things easier, you can repeat the same mission, using the same NPC to unlock this trophy.

So for example if you have 4 Gozuki soul cores and 1 Mezuki soul core, you can only fuse the 4 Gozuki soul cores together. Ensure you have 5 of the same type of soul core to get to rank 9.

In order to fuse a soul core, you need to be at a shrine, select soul fusion from the manage soul cores section, then simply select 1 of the 5 and fuse it, you will see the rank of the soul core increase.

Definitely one to leave until much later in the game, the Shirohami statues are at the lowest part of this mission, just before you go into fight Yatsu-No-Kami.

The Shirohami statues look like snake statues with a green aura around them, every time you destroy one, it will lower the poison water in the level, thus making the boss fight a lot easier.

Defeated each of the Seven Spears in “Cherry Blossom Viewing in Daigo”.

A slightly problematic trophy in Nioh 2, as you make your way through the Cherry Blossom Viewing in Daigo mission, you will be changing the way the level can be navigated.

To avoid any issues in fighting the Seven Spears, which are essentially much stronger versions of regular enemies with fancy armour and all of them use spears as weapons, take them out as you progress through the mission.

One of the biggest problems you’ll have in taking them down is they usually always have ranged soldiers near them covering their patrol routes.

I found it a lot easier to run past any of the Seven Spears, take down there entourage and then deal with them.

The first area has 2 of the Seven Spears straight off, so take them out and you should be fine to take out the other 5 as you make your way through the mission, be sure to check all of the buildings, especially around the Mezuki fight to ensure success.

Please Note: After you have taken down the last of the Seven Spears, you need to complete the mission before your trophy will unlock, so pay close attention to how many you have defeated so as not to miss any.

As soon as all Seven Spears are down and you have defeated Kashin Koji, your Trophy will unlock.

Drove back every Tatarimokke along the journey in “A Way Out”.

A Tatarimokke, are the glowing dimensional searchlights. There’s 2 of these located throughout the mission A Way Out.

Make sure you take each Tatarimokke out as quick as you can, as soon as the spotlight finds you, every yokai in the area will come for you.

The first one is located a few minutes into the main level, look for the large yellow circle patrolling the ground, follow this circle’s light to find the Tatarimokke.

The second one is located at the bottom of the hill you’ll run down on the far left of the level just before you go down into the village.

Simply hit them a couple of time to break them where your Trophy will unlock.

Defeated Gozuki in “The Village of Cursed Blossoms”.

The Village Of Cursed Blossoms is the first main story mission in Nioh 2.

Gozuki will be the 2nd enemy you’ll come across, whilst it is possible to defeat this gigantic bovine brute at this point, I strongly recommend you leave this until later in the game as this fight can be tough at first.

The biggest threat here is the tracking on Gozuki’s weapon, it just seems to land wherever you are, so make sure you stay back or burst counter to disrupt Gozuki’s attacks.

It is weak to fire + lightning so make good use of these 2 elements.

As as soon as Gozuki is down your Trophy will unlock.

Got Gyuki to attack the dam in “Pervading Waters”.

Gyuki is the second boss you’ll face in this level, as soon as the fight starts you’ll be in front of the Dam.

Stand still for a few seconds directly in front of Gyuki, he will do a charged dash attack that will go through you and hit the Dam in the process.

If you’re unsuccessful, stand there again until he does another dash attacks destroying the Dam and unlocking your Trophy in the process.
