The Shrine of Oaths

Mission Start Text

I have something I need your help with.

Are you familiar with the cavern known as the "Viper's Sanctum"? Some sort of slithering shadow has been spotted there. I fear that it is likely some kind of yokai. Master Dosan, before his passing, used to often take me there and my attachment to the place means I cannot simply overlook this matter.

Would you please drive out whatever beast is currently sullying that place with its presence?

Mission End Text

Ah, Hide, you have returned.

...Ha, I somehow sense the burden on your shoulders has only grown. I wonder what it is that you have discovered... Ho ho! Well, it is not for me to know.

I am grateful to you for carrying out what I aksed you.

The Shrine of Oaths Walkthrough

The Viper's Sanctum

You'll find the first shrine upon arriving at the starting point. The goal of this mission is to fight your way through the enemies in the area and reach the marked location. From the shrine, check the corridor first on the right to find a body that you can loot - head down to the slope after grabbing the item.

The area around will be filled with poison water again, and you'll need to destroy the viper statues just like in the main mission: The Viper's Sanctum to drain out the poison, there are three statues around the area. Apart from that, you'll also be facing yokai enemies such as Yoki, Aberrant Soldier, One-eyed Oni, Yamanba, Mitsume Yazura, Gaki, and Koroka, as well as human enemies.

You can find a Scampuss near the marked location. Before you head over, check the upper-section of the cave on the left side, you'll find a Scampuss behind some boxes. After clearing the outer section of the sanctum, head to the marked location and fight a gauntlet of yokai. You'll have to fight a One-eyed Imp, two Oni-bi, Karakasa Umbrella, and finally, a Karasu Tengu within the dark realm. After defeating the tengu, approach the NPC that's on the left side, standing by the small shrine - this will complete the mission and you'll obtain a new Guardian Spirit: Kagewani.
