The world is simply accessible after you’ve collected the Mortal Blade from Senpou Temple, the Lotus of the Palace Flower from the Sunken Valley, and the Shelter Stone from the Ashina Depths.
Easy methods to Entry the Fountainhead Palace
After getting collected all of the substances of the Fountainhead Aroma, and defeated Owl at Ashina Citadel (Nightfall) to get the department of the Everblossom, communicate with Lord Kuro to mix all of the substances into the incense burner to wrap your self within the aroma.
Following the clues, you will must current your self because the “bridal providing” by returning to the Marriage ceremony Cave within the Ashina Depths, and praying inside the marriage palanquin previous the place you discovered the Shelter Stone.
The result’s… sudden, as you’re taken on a journey excessive into the mountains above Ashina.
Now that you simply’ve taken a wild journey to the land of legends, night time has fallen throughout Ashina. Count on some stressed spirits to begin displaying up in sure areas – however extra importantly, you’ll now end up on the fringe of the Fountainhead Palace, far up within the mountains above the land.
Leaping down from the unusual factor that introduced you right here, look alongside the ledges to discover a Pellet, after which transfer up the trail to seek out the Fountainhead Palace Sculptor’s Idol.
Earlier than you possibly can discover the palace, you’ll must cope with a well-known gatekeeper.
At first look, the Corrupted Monk appears to behave very similar to the one you fought within the Ashina Depths. The one noticeable distinction to see right here is that this isn’t a phantom, and so Divine Confetti will do you no favors right here – and in addition that the Corrupted Monk has three well being bars.
Very like the primary combat, the Corrupted Monk makes use of her naginata to slam down with assaults, and also can do a number of sweeping slice combos which have a rhythm you’ll must get all the way down to correctly deflect assaults.
Many instances, the Corrupted Monk will finish a combo string with both a deadly thrust or low sweep – so control the actions of the blade to see when she holds it straight and shut, or holds it low off to the aspect to arrange to spin in circles.
There are additionally a number of tree branches alongside the bridge of this boss area – and you should utilize them to get round rapidly if boxed right into a nook, however don’t rely an excessive amount of as she nonetheless has sufficient attain to hit you together with her lengthy naginata.
On the second well being bar, issues get noticeably totally different. A black and white mist fog will envelop the world because the Corrupted Monk disappears, solely to reappear as three totally different phantoms that may carry out one assault earlier than disappearing.
The primary phantom will step ahead with a sweeping slash, the second phantom will seem close by with an overhead strike, and the third phantom will seem additionally close by for a leaping slash.

Every has their very own strengths and flaws – and no methodology is actually good, although you can even pull out the Loaded Umbrella and turtle up and hope your posture lasts lengthy sufficient to defend up three separate instances. Simply bear in mind that grappling doesn’t imply you’ll be immune, and sprinting can set you within the path of an showing phantom.
Apart from that, the second a part of this combat continues to be principally about awaiting the slashes and slowly increase posture every time potential by taking each alternative to deflect and counter. It may be fairly laborious to inform when the monk is obstructing blows, however know that assaults from behind can’t be blocked by her – so take that under consideration.
Lastly, while you attain the third section, the Timeless Centipede will present itself to place a brand new spin on the ultimate section.

Should you see her begin to retch and scream, rapidly dodge round behind and get your hits in the place you possibly can.
One other transfer she brings in from the earlier combat is the whirlwind of spinning assaults which are spaced however deal a ton of injury and could be laborious to reliably deflect – however tough to keep away from as to the wide selection of motion she will be able to cowl whereas spinning.
Fortunately, the centipede could be her greatest undoing, because it permits so that you can deal quite a lot of injury with out her having the ability to block whereas spewing gunk. This may allow you to decrease her well being to the purpose that her posture barely recovers, after which you possibly can work on deflecting all the things you possibly can to lastly put her and the centipede down, and sever the Corrupted Monk’s immortality.

Grapple down alongside the precise aspect of the ridge to get down the falls space. There are a couple of paths to take amongst these buildings right here, however for now probably the most easy will do.
On the entrance to the primary constructing you’ll discover a Mibu Balloon of Soul previous a tree with some Spirit Emblems. Contained in the constructing is one other Mist Noble – just like the one you discovered within the Hidden Forest. Nevertheless, this enemy isn’t as massive of a pushover as his good friend. Simply by you, he’ll begin sucking your lifeforce – inflicting huge terror buildup frighteningly quick.
In contrast to regular terror buildup – you received’t die outright, however you’ll turn into enfeebled: shedding nearly your entire most well being and resurrection nodes – and you may solely stagger about with sluggish swings – because the Mist Noble will then attempt to lurch ahead to seize and beat you do dying. You’ll be able to’t use a lot of any objects both on this state – the one option to get again to regular is to both kill the Mist Noble, or get far sufficient away that it loses curiosity. It’s extremely beneficial you solely method these enemies from behind, or dash in for a kill earlier than they will begin sucking you dry.
Previous this enemy, you’ll discover one other Mist Noble within the subsequent room overlooking a balcony – but additionally be careful for an extra Mist Noble behind some screens over by the opposite exit that appears out throughout the lake.
No matter you do, DO NOT attempt to swim out onto the lake.

You’ve truly heard about these creatures earlier than – within the textual content of the Sabimaru, which was used to nice impact in opposition to these god-like enemies. The legends maintain true, because the Okami are very weak to poison, and even a single hit of the Sabimaru will trigger them to retch from the poison – so make sure you use it when it is advisable get some respiration room.
Observe that the 2 patrolling sword customers are watched over by an archer on the decrease roof. As a way to get to him unannounced, you possibly can take the trail by the damaged wall and search for grapple factors – however you can even get to the highest of the roof, the place three extra archers watch a lone sword person training on a bridge overlooking the water.
Take out the trio – they go down a lot sooner than the soldiers, however can hearth off volleys in fast succession – after which ambush the training warrior and seize the Lump of Grave Wax. Should you’re feeling gutsy, you can even strive leaping over the deep waters to a damaged constructing to the precise (the overlaying will cease you from getting hit by lightning) and seize the Adamantite Scrap inside.
Again on the opposite aspect of the constructing closest to the falls, kill the archer on the second degree earlier than dropping all the way down to battle the Okami warriors, after which look contained in the constructing for a Mibu Balloon of Wealth – however be certain to not get your soul sucked by the Mist Noble hiding within the alcove to the left.
Whenever you attain the subsequent space, you’ll discover a big enclosed courtyard, with a damaged wall entrance to the far proper, or you possibly can hop onto the buildings to climb over the wall and discover a Ceramic Shard in a nest.
On this subsequent space, a number of dog-like beasts are wandering the shallows. If it seems to be like a canine, acts like a canine, and sounds…odd – it may well most likely die simply as simply. A shuriken or two will put one down, as does a single deflection – or you possibly can have enjoyable with the Finger Whistle to make them go mad.

Take into account investing in Eel Livers, or strive leaping to the aspect to keep away from them – however bear in mind the flexibility to disperse electrical energy by slashing whereas nonetheless within the air.

You should use the Finger Whistle to show the tables on them, after which ambush and kill the survivors. Seize the Adamantite Scrap, after which head outdoors.
Should you climb to the roof of the constructing, look alongside the bottom and also you’ll discover an Okami Warrior and Okami Archer sitting alongside the roof in wait – so have interaction fastidiously. Down under is a bunch of three canine creatures, and three extra within the small constructing close by – use the Finger Whistle (with out concentrating on particularly) to allow them to tear one another to items earlier than grabbing the Eel Liver they have been guarding.
Lastly, there’s some extra beasts trying round a tree by the massive gate on the finish. Get rid of them to seek out Yashariku’s Sugar, and the trail to the subsequent space.
Coming into the small courtyard, commune with the Mibu Manor Sculptor’s Idol. The entrance door seems locked, so as an alternative take a proper by a damaged wall to discover a small stairs main inside.
One other Mist Noble patrols these halls – anticipate him to move after which stab him within the again, after which crawl alongside the passage to keep away from the gaze of one other Mist Noble throughout a small pool. Within the subsequent room, a lady will name to you. She truly appears fairly first rate, and warns you of the numerous Mist Nobles right here – particularly within the courtyard forward.

Whenever you attain the tip of the room, it seems to be out on one other small courtyard with a tree surrounded by tall grass, and a bridge the place a Mist Noble performs his flute, and alternates trying towards you and away from you.

Watch for him to show once more, then race into the tall grass under him, and sneak assault him when the chance presents itself.
Subsequent, look off to the left for a constructing the place an Okami Warrior kneels to interact her in fight and lure her away from the Eel Liver she guards.

Not far away and also you’ll additionally discover Yellow Gunpowder at a useless finish. You’ll be able to nearly make out one thing massive simply past the display screen home windows – however you possibly can’t get on the market simply but.

The Divine Noble right here was going through the massive courtyard – however there are nonetheless three left, so skirt them and preserve to the outer left aspect.

As an alternative toss a Ceramic Shard at him from round a nook to silence him, after which rush the 2 Mist Nobles on the bridges earlier than the Okami Warriors see what’s occurring.
Two Warriors will emerge from the hut the place a Mist Noble with a purple gown sits (oddly sufficient this one received’t attempt to trigger terror injury), and one Warrior has a naginata spear. Just like the Corrupted Monk, this Okami Warrior could strive a spinning low sweep assault that may go on for 3 rotations – or soar into the air for a flying slam assault. Even the Sabimaru can’t poison these warriors immediately – and the Okami Warriors sporting purple also can leap into the air to cost up their spears with lightning to ship your method – however you possibly can replicate it again at them to stun them if you happen to’re fast.

Take a left to seek out a big pagoda with some Divine Confetti across the again, after which look across the different aspect for the lengthy path going behind the manor itself.
Mini-Boss – Sakura Bull of the Palace
As you attain the tip of the trail, a big variant of the Blazing Bull will seem on the different finish. It seems that even the divine monsters right here appear to like lighting a bull’s horns on hearth and letting it go wild.
It’s vital to notice that this combat is simply made tougher by a number of Okami Warriors and Archers crowded across the rooftops of the close by Mibu Manor. You’ll be able to flip the tables on them by searching for a grapple level previous the Scultpor’s Idol, and taking the combat to them.

Be sure you search for a grapple level to the aspect – falling into the deep water will set off the Okami lightning warrior within the distance to hurl extra bolts – so keep away from the depths. Throughout the bridge, you possibly can spot two Okami Warriors training… kickball?
It’s no joke. The Okami Kickballers will throw their balls excessive into the air earlier than slamming them at you – some will arc round to hit you from the aspect as a distraction, whereas others they will slam into you with unbelievable velocity and energy. Nevertheless, you might not need to have interaction the 2 on the platform simply but – two extra Kickballers are ready on the platform above to pelt you, so let’s discover a totally different path.
Go all the way down to the constructing on the left the place the opposite aspect of the bridge was to discover a Mibu Balloon of Soul, after which go across the left aspect of the constructing to discover a path up the falls the place a lone Okami Kickballer waits – and ambush her earlier than she will be able to begin pelting you.

There’s additionally two extra Okami Warriors behind you alongside the falls close to a damaged bridge – they can be snuck up on if you happen to grapple as much as the damaged bridge and get in behind them. With the enemies on the higher platforms gone, now you can drop all the way down to the decrease degree to seek out two extra Okami Warriors patrolling the underside of the platforms, after which lastly take out the 2 on the primary platform with out getting ambushed.
Whenever you’ve cleared this primary important platform, make sure you verify the shallows below the platform to discover a Mibu Balloon of Soul among the many rocks main out to the deeper water, after which head again in the direction of the falls to seek out numerous bridges resulting in the subsequent central platform.

Climbing to the higher platforms and searching additional forward, you possibly can spot two Okami Warriors close to the middle platform, one other patrolling between them and the final two Okami Warriors behind the platform by the waterfalls and an outdated shrine.
Partaking this group could be difficult – so make sure you use all the things in your arsenal just like the Sabimaru or Finger Whistle to distract and disorient – and check out taking out the enemies within the again earlier than working your method ahead such as you did earlier than. To do that, search for a decrease path resulting in a bridge alongside the again that’s damaged, and you may drop down to seek out extra of the dog-like creatures under guarding an Eel Liver, in addition to a Ceramic Shard additional downstream.
Wanting up from the waterways, you must have the ability to spot the 2 Okami Warriors armed with naginatas with their backs turned to you – making it a great strike level. Higher but, use the Puppeteer Ninjutsu to show one to your aspect and let him rip into the others earlier than ending up the job – simply be careful for stray lightning bolts.
You’re getting nearer to the massive tree the place that lightning-hurling jerk is – however not shut sufficient.

Should you hear an odd noise close by – that’s as a result of on the falls additional to the precise is a Shichimen Warrior training his magic, however we’ll cope with him later. For now, return to the small shrine hut and grapple atop it to seek out extra platforms in opposition to the cliff that the waterfalls are pouring down.
Transfer up these rock platforms and throughout branches protruding of the waterfalls to succeed in to the highest of the palace stairs – solely to seek out the door right here locked, and what feels like many Mist Nobles on the opposite aspect.
Your solely method ahead appears to lie with the massive lake – so eliminating that enemy on the tree is our objective. Head down the steps from the locked door to a basin with some Spirit Emblems.
