|2||Move along the wall going to the far right edge of the area to another small building and stables. Take out the Mongol guard there and the one inside the stable.|
|3||Head for the ramp going to the upper area of the fort. There will many enemies here, including two mace-wielding Mongols that are tough to take down.

|4||Get ready to battle three waves of enemies consisting of Straw Hats and Mongol forces. Follow Yuna again afterwards.|
Dealing with the Mongol Mace Wielders
The ramp leading to the upper area of Fort Koyasan is guarded by two Mongol mace-wielding brutes. An easy way to get rid of them is by using hallucination darts obtained by clearing The Proud Do Not Endure Tale given by Yuriko. The side quest becomes available after clearing Ghost from the Past.
Upon being shot with the darts, the brutes will go berserk and attack their allies in the upper level of the fort. The remaining enemies should not be too hard to deal with, especially if you shoot the explosive barrels in the area.
Defeating the Combined Force of Straw Hats and Mongol Warriors
Dogs will be among the first wave of enemies consisting of the Straw Hats and Mongols. Take them out first as they will annoyingly take cheap shots at you when you are busy with other targets. Also remember to switch stances to adapt to the type of enemy you are fighting and lure one from the group to make the encounter more manageable.
You should be quite comfortable parrying enemies at this point as well. Use it to accumulate Resolve to give you the option of using sword techniques or healing during the fight.
