The Warrior

Mission Start Text

A mysterious shadow was supposedly spotted skulking amongst the flames at Honnoji. I cannot fathom who could possibly withstand those conditions.

If you decide to go and investigate, you should be careful, whether it be a yokai, or just a thief.

Mission End Text

Ah, so you're back.

Well, what happened? What did you find?

Hmm... Something tells me you'd rather not say.

Well, so be it. It there wasn't any yokai involved then it is of little interest to me.

The flames consuming Honnoji will die down eventually. Bu the agonies of those lost to the blaze will continue to live on for some time yet, I fear...

The Warrior Walkthrough

The Burning Temple

starting point the warrior nioh 2 wiki guide 600px

Players arrive in the burning Buddhist temple Honnoji, you'll find the shrine for this mission ahead. After using the shrine, open the door next to it and proceed forward. You'll notice that there are multiple highlighted areas on the mini-map. The target is at the north section where you'll have to retrace your steps back to a large house near the location of the second shrine in the main mission: The Frenzied Blaze. The area ahead is infested with yokai and human enemies. So be cautious when you are exploring - once you reach the main target area, you'll find the second shrine

Upon reaching the main house, check the east side where you'll encounter a Koroka, behind it is a Scampuss which you'll want to take before you head inside the house. Inside it, you'll enter the dark realm where you'll have to fight a Yoki followed by an Ippon-Datara - all you have to do is kill the Ippon-Datara to dispel the dark realm and to complete the mission.
