In this chapter you will find advice related to neutralizing and finding the illusory walls in NiOh.
How to find the secret passage?
In most cases you can find an opponent only by detecting the holes in the wall that are similar to the ones on the above picture. Once you get close to the wall, you will notice a pair of eyes looking at you. If you decide to attack the wall with the eyes, you will trigger a battle with the demon.
It is worth mentioning that sometimes the game sets you in such position that you can see the back of the demon. In that case you won't see any special signs, but if you move towards the wall, information "remove talisman" will appear. It is a direct signal that the wall you see isn't what it seems to be.
Another way to detect the wall is by checking the portals that enable you to summon wraiths. Each portal has information about how the player whose ghost you can fight had died. If he was killed by a Nurikabe, you can start looking for the illusory wall in the chamber you are currently in.
How to deal with the walls?
Forceful solution might not be the easiest way, but it is an effective one. You can shoot the eye of the monster when he looks at you - this will initiate the combat. You can also simply walk towards the wall and start attacking it. In most cases this method will be required.
If you manage to reach the back of the wall, simply confirm the removal of the talisman that keeps the creature alive. In this case the demon will disappear immediately and you will still be able to loot it. Of course, this method depends on the map and the available path.
Gestures are important method of neutralizing the walls as well. Nurikabe can be in two states - peaceful and hostile. In the peaceful state their eyes are regular. Stand in front of the wall and use any gesture from the blue set. The wall will disappear immediately.
If after using the blue gesture the eyes of the demon became red or they were red before, it means that you must use a yellow gesture. In both cases the wall will disappear and leave its loot behind.
