This guide will be covering the best stop where you can find Divine Confetti and other items in Ashina Castle in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Please note that there are still lots of areas where you can find this quick item.
Farm the best buff item in the game (+25% damage to standard enemies, destroys apparitions) + some other nifty crafting materials & healing items relatively early on to get yourself on your way to stomping those headless.
How to Get Divine Confetti
Start by teleporting to the Upper Tower – Antechamber idol in Ashina Castle.
Next; take out the samurai & clear the space of any obstructions as shown in the pic below. After clearing, the flowchart will have been delayed, so enemy placement will differ – to get the full ninja farm effect, attempt the following steps after resting at the idol.
Now, make your way into the next room and hug the railing while keeping at least a decent enough distance not to be seen then take out the next samurai.
Now hug the left side of the middle railing and wait for the old bag to get within range, just like the prior samurai.
Now you’re going to turn right & run straight up to the samurai at the end of the hall (he might’ve already turned left around the corner depending on how quickly you dealt with the old bag) and of course; Shinobi Execute like so many before him.
Note: I cleared the sliding doors out in this room just to give me a clear line of sight to swap lock-on targets to our final samurai of the circuit.
Lastly, just run right up to the closest samurai & execute him and don’t worry about being spotted by the other one, just un-target him and get out of there.
Note: This is when I hold the item collect button as I’m making my way back to the idol.
Rinse and Repeat
You can up your drop chances with Wealth Balloons and the charm you get by ringing the Demon Bell.
Advanced Ninja Techniques
If you want to speed up the circuit a little, you can try this:
After the first kill, dash jump over the railing (from the left side) toward the center area of the inner railing, behind the samurai, and get up with a wall kick.
After this, do the same on the left, behind the old bag (I wait until she walks up to at least the 3rd beam of the wall/past the first set of sliding doors before I attempt the jump).
Watch out for this jump, if you hold up/left too much, you risk crashing through the wall & alerting the 2 samurai behind it (leaving a line of sight for future cycles, rendering this method inefficient). You’ll want to neutral wall kick up and then tilt in like a real ninja.
And that’s it! Enjoy lots of Confetti for those tough battles and New Game Plus (NG+) cycles to come. Total possible confetti drops 4 (then whatever the old bag drops). That’s 5 kills per cycle.
If you fall down attempting a wall kick, just use your pocket idol to last rest spot, but porter beware; this will reset the environment & you’ll have to smash a wack of tatami all over again.
