Quest - Warrior's Path Edit

1.Into Shogun Castle Edit

Hey you! Let me talk to you for a second! Yes, you! Just come here. Don't worry, I just want to talk for a moment. My name is Miyamoto Musashi, the Swordsman of Banshu. I don't mean to boast, but people call me the Invincible Warrior. I'm sure you have heard of me. Ha ha ha, I'm sure you have. I'm known throughout Japan. Ah, but you've been all over, haven't you? I'm kind of busy at the moment so I don't have the time to teach you any fencing, but I will make some time if you'd like. Hey, hey! I get it if you're busy. Not everyone is interested in swordplay, I suppose. Still, I can make this worth your while. If you help me, I'm willing to give you some precious items that should help you face any enemies you might have. Of course, if you still want to continue your journey... Then I have no choice but to find someone else... How about it? Sure you're not interested? ~ Enter the Shogun Castle of Death and see what you find. If I'm right, the Dusk Clan will be lying in ambush. If they are, kill at least 30 of them. Even though we've only just met, I believe I can count on you.

Mission: Kill Ground Spider Warrior x30

~

Ah, you made it! You're probably wondering what I was up to while you were off fighting. Well, I was preparing for battle. You were running late, so I thought I might have to pull you out of harm's way. Seems I had nothing to worry about. Well... Isn't it a good thing you came back alive?

Reward:

  • Experience: 40,000
  • Gold: 45,000
  • Item: Omikuji Divination Box x1

2.Something is Wrong Edit

Don't tell me you want your reward already! Not a chance! For an item this great, you should give me at least a day's worth of your time. Trust me! At any rate, I have another favor to ask you. Help me resolve this mess, and you'll get the item. The men you killed were warriors of the Dusk Clan and followers of Samidare. Their reputation precedes them, but they were gravely mistaken to challenge me in combat. ~ But it's strange that you didn't see him at the Bloody Moat. A warrior's honor demands he wait for his opponent after sending a challenge like this. If he wasn't there himself, perhaps he left some clue as to his whereabouts? Maybe he left some kind of note. Could you go to the Bloody Moat one more time and see what you find?

Mission: Samidare's Letter x1

~

Ha ha. So there was a letter! Let me take a look. ...ha! This... this letter is... Samidare... you are not long for this world. The things he's done... unforgivable!

Reward:

  • Experience: 30,000
  • Gold: 40,000

3.Ghostly Power Edit

It seems he's been transformed into an evil spirit in exchange for his loyalty to the lord of the Shogun Castle of Death. The letter itself is unimportant, but the dark energy clinging to the letter confirms my theory. No mortal weapon will suffice to slay such a spirit. Only another spirit, or perhaps someone wielding a ghostly weapon, can do battle with one. ~ We certainly can't become ghosts ourselves. I need you to find 10 Ghost Masks. It's not an easy item to find, but I believe you can do it.

Mission: Ghost Mask x10

~

Huh? What do you need? Oh, did you really bring me the Ghost Masks? Let me see them. I want to see if you have brought the right ones.

Reward:

  • Experience: 40,000
  • Gold: 30,000

4.Weapons Test Edit

Whoa! Not bad! To be honest, I've never had my hands on one of these myself. I can't believe you actually found some! These are definitely the ones we need. I can feel the remains of a powerful spirit within these masks. Great job! ~ Let's test this out, shall we? I've doused your weapons with oil imbued with ghostly energy, so it should be effective in your next battle. Go to the Bloody Moat, and test it by killing 30 Ashigaru Rifleman.

Mission: Kill Ashigaru Rifleman x30

~

Not bad. They say that when you know yourself, and you know your enemy, you can't lose.

Reward:

  • Experience: 40,000
  • Gold: 45,000

5.Your Weapon is Everything Edit

Huh? What happened to your weapon? It shouldn't be this damaged after fighting so few opponents. I don't know who made it, but this is really bad! A weapon is everything to a warrior. Imagine what would have happened if your weapon was damaged or destroyed while in battle! And you share some of the blame! How can you call yourself a warrior if you don't even know how to make a weapon? This is no good. I'll give you a piece of advice, since you have been so helpful to me. ~ Tell me, what weapon can kill from far away, with a single attack? Enter the number of the correct answer.
1: Bow
2: Axe
3: Power Saw
4: Sword

Mission: Answer Your Weapon is Everything question > 1

~

That's correct.

Reward:

6.Choose Carefully Edit

Bows are indeed the deadliest weapon on the battlefield. In the right hands they are lethal, and they allow you to kill many opponents without confronting them directly. But that doesn't mean that you can rely solely on the bow. I think not. What if you're fighting in a bamboo forest, grass-covered plains or a murky swamp? Do you really think your bow can be effective in such environments? It looks to me like this giant bow will actually hinder the user. ~ No matter how good a weapon is, it's useless if you don't need it. It's better to always bring the right weapons to the right battle. Take inventory of your current equipment. Be sure that you have the right tools for this battlefield.

Mission: Open Inventory Window

~

Great. How was my advice? I hope you learned something. You don't actually need a bow in specific to fight ghosts. I simply wanted to make sure you could handle a variety of weapons. But you look like you can handle any type of weapon with ease. You've done a great job.

Reward:

  • Experience: 40,000
  • Gold: 35,000

7.Ninjas' Intelligence Network Edit

It looks like we have made all the necessary preparations. The Chief of the Dusk Clan is our final target. Samidare... where could he be hiding? He always was a coward. Ha ha. There is much to be learned by studying Ninjas. They have access to a wealth of secret information garnered through a vast intelligence network. ~ But I doubt they'd give up their information without a fight. Go to the Garden of Withered Flowers, kill the Ninja Assassins, and bring me the Ninja's Memo containing Samidare's whereabouts.  You may have to sift through a great deal of memos to find out what we need. Take your time, even ninjas don't know everything.

Mission: Ninja's Memo x40

~

Oh... Here's a useful piece of information! And it's written so legibly, too! I don't know where you found this, but it will prove to be very valuable! Great job!

Reward:

  • Experience: 50,000
  • Gold: 40,000

8.Wicked Dancers Edit

It's written here that Samidare is strolling with the snakes. The only strolling snakes in the Shogun Castle are the dancers. In other words, Samidare is hiding among the dancers inside the Black Keep. ~ The dancers seduce your soul with their wicked melodies. You will have to kill them before you can defeat Samidare. A warrior should not kill women, but these women have become monsters. Kill 25 Cheering Dancers and come back when you're through.

Mission: Kill Cheering Dancer x25

~

Oh, so you came back! Well done!

Reward:

  • Experience: 35,000
  • Gold: 40,000

9.Kill Samidare Edit

This is it. The final favor I have to ask of you. Your weapon has been imbued with ghostly power. Find Samidare and kill him with it. ~ I've heard that Samidare is hiding in his room somewhere in the Black Keep. You'll be able to find him if you take a careful look around the place. Do this, and I'll give you the item I promised.

Mission: Kill Samidare x1

~

So you came back! Are you sure that evil spirit is dead? I can tell by the look in your eyes that you have succeeded! I have no doubt about it. You did a great job. Take this as your reward. I found this in my travels. This is the greatest ghostly sword there is. The sword, scabbard and decorations were made by a most accomplished blacksmith. It's called the Cursed Sword Muramasa and was made by the greatest master sword smith in Japan.

Reward:

10.The Warrior's Path Edit

However, Muramasa's power ultimately comes from an infernal source. If you misuse it, great misfortune will surely befall you. You must promise me that you will take great care with this blade. ~ You must swear that you will fulfill your responsibilities as a warrior. If you really understand what I mean, say I Understand.

Mission: Answer The Warrior's Path question > I Understand

~

I can relax, knowing you've said this. I hope you always uphold your warrior's honor.

Reward:

  • Experience: 40,000
  • Gold: 30,000

11.Show Your Skill Edit

Wait! There is one thing I want you to do before you go. Aww! I can't believe you're already ready to leave! What's the big hurry? I can't believe you got ready to take off as soon as I stopped talking. Relax and listen to me. There is one more thing you should know. Things might have gone poorly if I had just let you leave. Only your sword, Muramasa, can ensure our victory. Listen. Those Dusk soldiers didn't challenge me without a plan. I think that the powerful, dark energy exuded by the lord of Shogun Castle, Oda Nobunaga, is responsible for turning all those once-noble warriors into ghosts. You must kill Oda Nobunaga. Destroying the ghosts' leader is the only way to stop all this once and for all. As I told you earlier, there is no need to worry. There's nothing you, your Muramasa, and my brains can't do if we work together. ~ I know it won't be easy, so we can't just go after him without a plan. His strength is such that even someone like you could be turned into a ghost in his service. Killing 25 of Nobunaga's guards, the Kagemusha, is the first thing you should do. We need to thin out our opponent's ranks.

Mission: Kill Kagemusha x25

~

Good. You did well. Okay, let's take the next step, shall we?

Reward:

  • Experience: 40,000
  • Gold: 50,000
  • Item: Omikuji: Very Good x1

12.Use the Charm Edit

Oda Nobunaga possesses great, ghostly power, so he can't be slain by an ordinary sword. Even the Muramasa's power alone cannot fell him. However, I doubt he could withstand both the cursed sword and a charm sealed with spiritual energy at the same time. ~ That's how we'll beat him. Harnessing the power of charms will turn the tide of battle! Bring me 30 Destroyer's Charms. You can make them yourself or have someone make them for you. I'll tell you our next step when you come back. Ha ha.

Mission: Destroyer's Charm [I] x30

~

Good job. Now I'll attach the charms you have brought to the back of your weapon. That alone should give you immense power.

Reward:

  • Experience: 40,000
  • Gold: 40,000
  • Item: Keep Tower Key x3

13.Oda Nobunaga Edit

We're ready at last. The lord of the keep, Oda Nobunaga, is our final target! I've heard that he's on the roof of the Black Keep, but you need the Keep Tower Key to gain admittance, so have that at the ready. ~ If you have the Keep Tower Key, you can go up to the roof.  Go kill the ghost Oda Nobunaga at once.  It will be hard, but it can't be that hard for you considering what you have done so far.

Mission: Kill Oda Nobunaga x1

~

Ha ha, you made it! I knew you were a great warrior! Take this. It's a gift for helping me kill Oda Nobunaga, the ghosts' leader. Of course it's not as valuable as your Muramasa, but I've prepared it because I thought it might be useful to someone like you. I wish I could train you as my student, but clearly your skill and courage make you my equal. Take care of yourself. I'll find you if I require any more help. Ha ha ha!

Reward:

  • Experience: 60,000
  • Gold: 60,000
  • Item: Enhance Stone [III] x20
