Main Mission – The Source of Evil Walkthrough


Sekigahara Region

Once you regain control, head right to fight a shrine shining in the red blackness. Rest and prepare for the arduous trek ahead of you. Traverse the battlefield, heading west. Talk to the NPC by the stairs to receive a soul-soothing gem and head up the platform. In the distance is a terrifying foe. Drop down and cross the battlefield. Head southwest for an opening into the larger battlefield after looting the battlefield towards the huge monster. There are some corpses here, so note that you can get loot from them.  

In this new field, Yokai prowl. Head north. You’ll eventually find a huge crystal to drive your spike with, next to the huge monster battle in the background. Find the ledge dropping down to the crater with the huge monster. Drop down and find the log that functions as a ramp. Head up. Take note of the shrine to your right.

Head back to the crater with the ginormous, multi-armed monster.

Literally ‘starving skeleton,’ Gasha-dokuro is a gigantic, multi-armed skeleton. Remember to attack its feet or hands, its weak points. Another way to fight Gasha-dokuro is to use the Living Weapon with the wind property.

After the death animation and cutscenes, head toward the flaming orb to go forward and end the mission.
