Finding all of the Nioh 2 Darkness in the Capital hot spring locations is just soothing and an easy heal; it will also unlock the Spa Fanatic trophy. Thankfully, there are only three hot springs in the expansion. Here’s how to find all of them.
Nioh 2 Darkness in the Capital Hot Spring Locations | The Blighted Gate
There is one hot spring in this second campaign mission.
Get to the house with all of the spider webs in it
Near the end of the mission, you’ll comes across a Shrine in a building shrouded in the Yokai Realm. This is the Shrine that is the closest to the spider-like boss.
Open the door on the right
There is a door on that bottom floor next to the Shrine. Go open it.
Go outside and you’ll see it right down the stairs
Once you open the door, you’ll see the hot spring right in front of you. Go take a dip.
Nioh 2 Darkness in the Capital Hot Spring Locations | Palace of the Damned
There is also only one hot spring in this final main story mission in the expansion.
Go outside of the building with the Nue fight
Progress further on in the story after the first boss fight. Go through the caves. Eventually, you will make your way to this area right before going into a building and fighting the Nue (the electric beast). But don’t go in just let. Look to your right to where the arrow is pointing.
Fight the wall
That arrow points to Nurikabe, the monster walls that hide hidden areas. You can either fight it or pick the right class of emotes (the “yellow” class of emotes seemed to have worked, but your results may vary.
Go inside and take a dip
Once you get past it, the hot springs will be waiting for you at the end of the narrow cave.
Nioh 2 Darkness in the Capital Hot Spring Locations | The Buddha’s Palm
The last hot spring is in this side mission.
Get to the room with the medium-sized gold statue
You will eventually make your way to this room with the statue in it. Keep going forward.
Go up the ladder on the left in the room with the cyclops
That room will lead you to this room with a huge cyclops in it. But don’t fight him yet. Look to the left and you will see a ladder.
Interact with the statue at the top of the ladder
Once at the top of the ladder, interact with the glowing statue right in front of you. This will open up the door. Don’t go toward the yokai. You don’t have to (but there is a Kodama there).
Walk inside and go in the hot spring
Now just walk in the newly opened room and take a dip.
You should have every hot spring in Darkness in the Capital now. If you need help finding the Kodama, you can check out our guide on that as well. If you want to know where the fire altars are, there is also a guide for that. If you need help getting the Oboroguruma to release Amrita, here’s the guide on that. And of course, if you want to know the ins and outs of the Fists and Clawed Fist weapons, there is also a guide on that.
