Random information about questions constantly asked on this board can go here. This is not a sticky thread as it's (or will be too sloppy) but if someone wants to make one with the info in this thread go ahead. Tired of trying to get a FAQ submitted for this game.

map.

Note #02 Found by going through one of the doors in the north-east district
area.

Note #03: Unsure where I found this but since Kai is such a small map if I had
to guess it's probably in the area where the log breaks and you fall into a
bottom area and forced to fight some ninja.

Note #04: Boss map. Found in a hut in the south part of the map located in a
dead end area.

Note #05 Found in a hut in one of the southwest areas near the Enemy Lair

Forging swords needs a certain amount of Spirit and Souls. You can maintain a
high level of Spirit by eating the last option of any restaurant you pass by at
least once. There is a restaurant in Yamashiro who's last food option gives you
6,000 Spirit for only 100 mon.

Souls are gather from fallen enemies or can be found scattered throughout the
maps. Enemy Lair challenges are fast ways to farm souls if you need to.

Great topic. What problems did you have submitting the FAQ?


Note #03: Unsure where I found this but since Kai is such a small map if I had to guess it's probably in the area where the log breaks and you fall into a bottom area and forced to fight some ninja.

Right, it's there.


Utsusemi Gauntlet | ? | ?

Momohime's is in her Act 4 boss area (with the Chimera), in one of the high vertical rooms. When you get to the top there will be a suspended bridge to get through. Cross it, then fall down below the left exit to find a hidden room below (you can see some souls marking the way down).
