Best Skills

#1 - Inubashiri (Faster Sneaking)

Tree: Abilities

Levels: 2

Skill Points Cost: 10; 15

Magatama Needed: 3

Inubashiri should be the first skill that you upgrade as you will find that most enemies will be too fast for you to sneak up on while you are moving with no upgrades. The first upgrade increases your sneaking speed by 30% and then after applying 3 Magatma you will be able to purchase the second of the two upgrades to increase your sneaking speed by 60%.

#2 - Fudo (Core Exposure – Duration Boost)

Tree: Abilities

Levels: 2

Skill Points Cost: 10; 15

Magatama Needed: 0

Getting this skill needs to be a priority when you consider that the longer a core is exposed the more time you have to grab it for a kill. Even more so when you take into account that the longer the core is exposed the more time you have to expose other cores and simultaneously pull multiple cores, killing several foes at once. At max, the time that cores are exposed increases by two-and-a-half times. This skill is even more effective when it is paired with Kukirihime (Core Grab – Speed Boost) and Wakumusubi (Core Grab – HP Restoration).

#3 - Omoigane (Spectral Vision – Range Boost)

Tree: Abilities

Levels: 3

Skill Points Cost: 10; 15

Magatama Needed: 0

Spectral Vision is an ability that is unlocked through main mission gameplay that gives you the ability to see items and enemies through walls and floors. This therefore enables you to scope out idea, unimpeded paths to your destination. This ability also allows you to see the patrol patterns of Visitors and plan your attack. At max range Spectral Vision is increased to 50 meters.

Other essential skills you may want to take into consideration when deciding which ones to unlock are Susanoo (Wire In - Duration Boost), Kukirihime (Core Grab - Speed Boost), and Tatenui (Perfect Block - Ether Boost).
