From Software’s latest update for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will offer a much-needed balance in the game’s use of Spirit Emblems and how Shinobi prosthetic tools and martial arts consume them.

The following prosthetic tools will have their Spirit Emblems cost-adjusted: Lazulite Sacred Flame, Loaded Ax Series , Sparking Ax and Lazulite Ax. While the shoulders of Sekiro have very clear effectiveness against shielded enemies, the game’s fast-paced battle can make them seem less effective, given their working hours. In particular, Lazulite Sacred Flame has debatable use, since it is a late game upgrade and the players usually have access to abundant amounts of Divine Confetti at that time.

FromSoftware will also adjust the amount of Spirit Emblems consumed by the following combat arts: Ashina Cross, Dragon Flash, One Mind, Floating Passage , Spiral Cloud Passage, Mortal Draw and Empowered Mortal Draw. Two martial arts have been down: Senpou Leaping Kicks and Hi gh Monk delivered more posture injuries than intended, says FromSoftware.

Respiratory tracts, obtained from the severe headless enemies, will also consume fewer spirits to make them more viable.

Finally, players who get stuck on the Blazing Bull boss are likely to find the enemy easier to defeat. The developer says it “somewhat lowered” the bull’s attitude and vitality “to improve the game and balance the time in battle.”

More details about the patch, which will live April 22 at 6 PDT, can be found on the game’s Japanese website.
