A new Nioh 2 update fixes a ton of bugs, and adds quality of life changes

You know how annoying it is when developers release major patches for games and kind of just go silent? That's not what Team Ninja is doing and I appreciate the hell out of it.
Nioh 2's version 1.05 patch is now live for the only version of the game (PS4), and they gave us full patch notes on Twitter to comb through. The main highlights beyond a ton of bug fixes include quicker proficiency gains when you're using a weapon that's lower than your lowest proficiency weapon (encouraging playstyle variety is a good thing, instead of getting stuck in one ecosystem), and some dojo missions require less proficiency. Good quality of life changes all-around there.
Enemies have also been altered (Gaki have lowered health and attack damage, Acolytes have buffed health, Yoki and Enki have lowered attack power), the recommended levels have been altered to be more accurate (this is something I was comically talking to Jordan about last week), and a few other inside baseball changes. I wrote those out manually from the patchnotes below.
Frankly, this game came at the perfect time. It's a wonderful adventure that you can just get completely lost in for days on end.
