Kahako Nihi is a unique Armor in Pillars of Eternity 2.


Even donning this brigandine coat demands deftness. Its jagged metal plates protrude at odd angles, jutting from among layers of frayed gambeson and punctured leather and lending the armor a rough, almost dilapidated, cast.

The sharp edges prove a boon in the tight matches of the pit, however, lacerating a foe who gets too close or damaging their weapon.Osara Haru, a wealthy stakeholder in the Royal Deadfire Company and an unabashed patron of the Crucible, commissioned Kāhako Nihi in her homeland for a fighter she'd taken particular interest in, only to find the woman had perished in single combat against a drake before the winds effected Haru's return. Unwilling to waste a resource, Haru offered up the armor as a prize to the gladiator who claimed the drake's head.

Kahako Nihi Unique Enchantment Upgrades

Enchantments play a vital role in a player's equipment, these Enchantments provide different special effects that can be used as an advantage in battle. Some Unique Armor carries multiple Enchantments that players may equip and some Unique Armor only has one Enchantment. These Enchantments can only be found in Unique Items and can be upgraded if needed.

Players can unlock all of the upgrades listed for a Unique Shield's Enchantment, however, some upgrades replace the current enchantment, and some can be stacked as bonus effects. By doing this, players must have the required ingredients and sufficient Copper Pands (CP) to be able to craft their preferred upgrade.
