Interface and controls | Basics NiOh Guide

The chapter below takes a look at the interface, which will accompany you throughout your whole adventure with NiOh. Aside from that, you'll find the list of controls used in the game.

Interface

1. Health and Stamina Bars - The blue bar represents your health, while the green one shows your Ki.

2. Guardian Spirit Bar -This icon represents the presence of the Guardian Spirit who accompanies our hero. This icon is empty if the hero had died, and the Spirit has to guard his grave and the Amrita stored there. Damage dealing increases the amount of Amrita which further fuels the Guardian Spirit bar. When the bar is full, the player can use a special fighting style - Living Weapon.

3. Radar - The radar icon lights red if you were detected by an enemy, accompanied by the characteristic sound. The white line in a circle shows you the direction in which you need to be headed to proceed with your objectives.

4. Item Shortcuts - You can enter the inventory to assign items to eight available slots (2 tabs). The items are assigned to directional buttons, while R2 is used to switch the item tab.

5. Battle Stances - this part of the interface shows the available battle stances. The current stance is marked by white lining. The hero can holster his weapon after a moment of idleness, but the chosen stance is constantly active.

6. Gold - You'll be amassing this currency throughout the game. You can see the current amount at any time by looking at this icon.

7. Amrita - energy used to develop your hero. Every defeated enemy or an environmental source increases the amount of Amrita you have with you. More details can be found in the dedicated chapter.

8. Currently Equipped Weapon - the inventory window enables you to equip two weapons that can be swapped during combat, without having to open the inventory. This icon shows the currently equipped weapon - you can press R1 to see the alternative choice.

9. Currently Equipped Ranged Weapon - as above, the inventory window enables you to choose two ranged weapons that can be swapped during combat, without having to switch the weapons through game menus. You can press R1 to see the contents of the second slot.

10. Skill Points - this part of the interface contains scrolls that symbolize acquired skill points. The skills are divided into three categories: Samurai (weapon skills: Sword, Dual Sword, Spear, Axe, and Kusarigama), Ninja, and Onmyo Magic. The number on the scroll indicates the amount of points you are able to spend on certain skills.
