Twilight Mission – The Squirming Sprite Walkthrough

The mission starts you off at the base of a hilly area with Bloody Graves around. Revenants might spawn from the Bloody Graves; defeat them and head towards the building ahead and to your left.

As you get closer, you will see a Raven Tengu standing on one of the slopes in the area. Shoot at it using your longbow (if you have one) to goad it into attacking, then finish it off once it reaches you. Inspect the area beside the building to find a Small Spirit Stone. Head up the slope where the Raven Tengu was standing and battle the revenants that will spawn from the Bloody Graves.

You will see the entrance to a cave, but leave that for now and hop down to the roof of the building to your left. Take out the Biwa Boku-boku on the other side. Inspect the glowing area beside the yokai to get a Daion-jin’s Sake. Kill the second yokai standing at the corner of the roof, then drop down to the pathway below. Dispatch the yokai snacking on the corpse in the far corner of the pathway, then inspect the corpse to obtain a Yokai Incense.

Open the door of the building to reveal a Yokai gate. You will be walking to a difficult challenge here, as the gate will let loose a couple of heavy hitters: an Onyudo and an Amrita Fiend. Defeat the yokai, then grab the Wind Omamori charm from the altar inside the building.

Go around the building, then make a left into the rocky path. Kill the revenant waiting in the area, then enter the cave. You will get hit by a nasty combination of fire and poison traps at the top of the path. Get yourself out of the way of the traps, then use a ranged weapon to destroy them without getting damaged. Inspect the fire to get a Spirit Stone.

Walk slowly up the path to avoid getting noticed by the Amrita Fiend. Kill him, then head back to the door near the area of the traps. Open the door and walk inside until you find a ladder. Press O at the ladder to go down, then again at a second ladder one level down.

You will end up at a room with a Raven Tengu and some yokai. Once they are destroyed, inspect the wall near the Bloody Grave. It is actually a Nurikabe in disguise. Taunt the wall to make it reveal its true form, and loot the items behind it, which includes a High Quality Leather Cord, some armor, and some weapons. You can also get a Saisetsu-shin’s Sake from the dead body near the Bloody Grave.

Enter the passageway concealed by the Nurikabe and go all the way to the end. Drop down the hole in the floor; this will lead to a room with several Yokai, including a Sentry. Go down the doorway with green moss on the walls, but be careful, because another Sentry will swipe down on you when you get near. Trigger the big rock trap in the staircase ahead, then get out of the way as it rolls past you.

Open the double doors at the top of the stairs to find the mission’s boss – another Onyudo and Amrita Fiend combo. However, you only need to defeat the Onyudo to win the mission. Don’t engage the monster in the corridor, since there’s no space for you to dodge into. Make him chase you instead into the big room you came from and engage him there.
