Surely these new sprites must be after some kind of rare and valuable quest reward? Well, no. Here’s what to give purple Kodamas in Nioh 2:


Yep, really, anything. Purple Kodamas will accept any gift you can provide. All you need to do is drop a piece of gear from your inventory at the Kodama. It’ll gobble it up and spit you out some randomized rewards in return. The rarity of what you get seems to depends on what gift you give the purple Kodama, but it’s still a great way to get rid of the massive amount of junk you’re likely hauling around in your samurai satchel. 

A quest in Nioh 2 which sees you helping a Kodama will inform you that all they’re after are ‘human things’ which thankfully means almost everything you’re carrying around. You are a human after all. Or are you a Yokai? Either way, whatever you give the purple Kodama, it’ll be happy and give you something back in return. Thanks, little guy.
