Speak with Taka – Defend the northern gate

1 Go the swordsmith’s shop in Yarikawa and talk to Taka. Afterwards, head to the steward’s keep. Once inside, climb up the ladder in the room to your left.
2 Climb up and talk to Yuna at the top and follow her to the main gate.
3 Take out the Mongols that have stormed the gate. Once the gate is cleared, run to the northern gate to battle more Mongol intruders.

Reach the Mongol siege weapons

1 It is recommended to reach the siege weapons using stealth. From your starting point, go up the bank and hide in the grass ahead. Move through the cover and head for the nearby tent. Proceed using the crates as cover to avoid being seen by the Mongols that will approach the area. Make your way toward the left side of the fence and through the opening.
2 Use the stack of logs there as cover to reach the other side of the road. Stop for a while and wait for some Mongol warriors to go past you near the burned down building. Move further toward the handholds on the cliff wall and go up.
3 Take out the archers first in the area above before focusing on the melee enemies.

Disable the Mongol siege weapons – Return to Yarikawa Stronghold

1 Disable the two siege weapons in the area for a cutscene. Afterwards, go back down the handholds and enter the burned down building to hide.
2 Use Focused Hearing to sense the Mongol guards nearby. When they move away, turn left to the opening in the fence and go through it.
3 Hide in the grass and go past the Mongols holding a hostage to another patch of grass near the river. Before moving to the bridge, wait for the archer to leave.
4 Use the beam to cross and continue to Yarikawa Stronghold.

Reach the steward’s keep – Drive the Mongols from Yarikawa Stronghold

1 Move along the fence after entering Yarikawa Stronghold until come up to a creek. Go down and move in the water while staying close to the bank.
2 Jump up to the bank when you reach the keep’s bridge and climb up to the side. Take out the two archers and two mace Mongols there.
3 Enter the keep’s gate and prepare to battle General Temuge. Use Water stance to break through his shield. He mostly uses two-hit strikes that you can avoid by dodging to the side or even rolling backwards. When you are hit with his flaming sword, use roll to put it out.
4 After defeating General Temuge take out the remaining enemies with Ghost Mode by pressing L3 and R3. Head for the main gate afterwards and take out any enemies along the way.


Defeating General Temuge

General Temuge almost always uses two-hit unblockable combos so retaliating after his second move (either a shield bash or slash) is a good strategy against him. Pummel him with heavy attacks using Water stance to break his guard, leaving him open for a few quick hits.

The chance to parry General Temuge is when he opens with a quick sword swipe, though timing it wrong can result in you receiving his ending unblockable attack. This allows you to gain charges of Resolve but is quite risky.
