Important notes - Sekiro: where to find all the Rosary Grains | Guide (Part 1)

After defeating the Corrupted Nun in the Abyss of Ashina and the Guardian Monkey in the Gorge, the old mini-bosses present in the Ashina Castle will disappear to make way for new battles. This way you will not be able to collect the Rosary beads from the missing mini-bosses - so be sure to collect them before you get to this point!

Don't worry though: this guide is structured in chronological order, so you can get all the Grains available as soon as possible. This will make it easier for you to fight, as once you have collected 4 fragments, you will get an increase in the life bar, allowing you to be able to take more damage.

However, remember that some of them may have been missed as you progress through the final stages of the game, and you will need to unlock the Final Purification to take all Rosary beads. In fact, in the title they are present four different endings: choosing an ending other than Purification will make you impossible to recover two grains, linked precisely to this path.

Finally, remember that if you failed to collect all Rosary beads in a single game, you can retrieve them with the New Game +.

That said, let's start with this guide, which will focus on the areas of the Surroundings of Ashina, Hirata estate, Ashina Castle e Senpou Temple, Mount Kongo.

Surroundings of Ashina - Sekiro: where to find all the Rosary Grains | Guide (Part 1)

As you advance into the first play area, you will come across the at some point Generale Naomori Kawarada: a mini-boss not too difficult, albeit dangerous as it is the place at the beginning of the adventure. After reaching theIdol of the Sculptor placed near the door of the external walls, you will find waiting for the General a little further on. An effective tactic is to take out the enemies in the area so that they cannot help the general with their pesky attacks. The fight will begin when an enemy life bar appears on the left side of the screen: you will have to execute him twice to be able to defeat him. You can easily take a bar off them if you manage to attack him in stealth mode: in this way, the fight will be relatively easier. Block his attacks and try to destroy his posture, in order to win the fight. Upon completion, you will be rewarded with a Rosary grain.

As you continue in the surroundings of Ashina, you will find yourself having to fight with another mini-boss: theChained Ogre. He is an enemy vulnerable to fire, so be sure to retrieve the Fire-breathing barrel, obtainable in the Hirata estate. Thanks to this prosthetic tool, the clash with the Ogre will be much easier. The enemy will attack with great force: dodge his holds, be careful of his kicks and you should be able to defeat him quickly. The fight will reward you with a Rosary grain.

After the previous fight, you will find yourself in a courtyard full of snipers: taking them out will make it much easier for you to fight with the mini-boss that will come. The Generale Tanzen Yamauchi it is dangerous, but not impossible to defeat: after taking out the enemies around you, scatter your tracks so that your enemy loses your tracks. Subsequently, you can attack him in stealth mode: you will be able to take away an entire bar of life, facilitating the battle.

After defeating the boss of the Surroundings of Ashina, that is Gyoubu Oniwa on the horse, go to the opposite side of the arena where there are stairs.

At the top, you will have to jump to be able to reach the top of the building: you will find waiting for you, if you can, a bright chest, inside which you will find a Rosary grain.

The last Rosary grain of Ashina's Surroundings can be obtained once the mini-boss is defeated Fiery Bull. You can't miss it: it's a mandatory battle to reach the Ashina Castle. He is very dangerous, and if his attacks are successful, he can put the Burn status on you. Jump to avoid his charges, but watch out for his gore which can reach you in the air too.
