Dropping a mortal soul for a Sudama seems to be the easiest way to get a Kodama soul core.
Anybody else's game softlock when equipping this core?
I have gotten one of these drops from the one eyed imp when I killed it before it could transform
The side mission "the missing gun" is a nice farm both mini bosses you have to fight have a pretty good chance to drop these
As far as I can tell, the main use of this soul core is that it allows you to change any other soul core to a different type. (Brute, Feral, or Phantom) There are a handful of benefits to this, like the "The Dragon's Echo" skill that refunds 10% of the Anima spent to perform a Yokai Ability, if its type matches the type of your Guardian Spirit.
