Best Charms to Get for Early Game
Charms from Shinto Shrines
While charms can be obtained as rewards for clearing various Tales, it is recommended to acquire them from Shinto shrines. This is because charms obtained at shrines usually outperform those you get from side quests. You are also less likely to have to defeat enemies when looking for shrines than when doing Tales.
The challenge lies in actually finding Shinto shrines around the map. You can click on the link below for a guide on where to find all Shinto shrines in the game.
Recommended Charms for Early Game
Charm of Amaterasu
The Charm of Amaterasu lets you recover a moderate amount of health when defeating enemies, making it very useful for surviving battles. With enough skill, you can even avoid using Resolve to heal entirely.
Because of its effects, the Charm of Amaterasu is very useful for those favoring direct confrontation.
How to Get Charm of Amaterasu
The Charm of Amaterasu is found at Kinmuro Shrine south of the Golden Temple.
When you arrive at the shrine, you will notice that the stairs leading to it have collapsed. From there, look to the side to find a ledge that you can jump across to reach the shrine.
Charm of Kagu-tsuchi
The Charm of Kagu-tsuchi increases the damage you deal when your health is at less than 50%. Being able to hit harder when you are near death will you survive tough encounters, making the charm invaluable especially for beginners.
How to Get Charm of Kagu-tsuchi
The Charm of Kagu-tsuchi is found at Umenomiya Shrine northwest of Takigami Bridge. The shrine is also quite close to the village visited during the tale Behind the Honor. To initiate the tale, you must talk to an NPC found in the Golden Temple.
Upon nearing Umenomiya Shrine, you will come up to a burning wall that prevents you from going further. To proceed, take the side road on the left and follow the path to reach the shrine.
