How to Reset Skills (Book of Reincarnation)

If you feel you have made mistakes while playing Nioh 2 you can reset your characters skills by obtaining the Book of Reincarnation which you purchase from a Blacksmith. Check out our How to Reset Skills (Book of Reincarnation) to find out everything you need to know about this item.

How to Reset Skill Points

The main way you can reset the Skill points of your character is by getting the Book of Reincarnation which only becomes available once you have made enough progress in Nioh 2. During the beginning stages of the game you need to select the attributes you opt to purchase carefully as you will not be able to overhaul your character until you have completed the first two missions which means having to defeat their respective bosses.

Where to get the Book of Reincarnation

Once you have completed The Beast Born Of Smoke And Flames mission and defeated the Enenra boss you will be able to find the Blacksmith by proceeding to the Starting Point and selecting the 'Blacksmith' option at the menu. The Blacksmith can buy and sell items, as well as disassemble your unwanted gear for extra crafting materials. If you approach the Blacksmith you will be able to buy the Book of Reincarnation for 10,000 gold. It is important to remember that the Book of Reincarnation will increase in price the more you purchase it so you need to avoid being careless with the Skill points you focus on. The second time you try to purchase the Book of Reincarnation to respec your character it will cost you 30,000 gold and then 100,000 gold.

The Blacksmith isn’t the only place you’ll find a Book of Reincarnation. They can be found as one time drops in certain missions as you progress through the campaign.

Check out our Where to Farm Soul Cores guide to find out where you can find these important items in Nioh 2 which allow you to add magical attacks to your repertoire.
