Similar to Blood Vials in Bloodborne, you carry Elixir in Nioh. Unlike in Bloodborne, you always start with at least a set number each time you spawn. At the beginning of the game, you spawn with 3. I currently spawn with 4.
What did I do to increase this number and how can I increase it further? I'm (still) having a lot of trouble fighting Hino-Enma and having more Elixir would really help.
