The Spirit of Yarikawa’s Vengeance is one of the mythic quests in the game and completing it will let players learn the Dance of Wrath attack. It’s a powerful melee attack only known by the dead Yarikawa samurai clan. Our Ghost of Tsushima The Spirit of Yarikawa’s Vengeance Guide will help players with how to learn the Dance of Wrath and how to defeat the Spirit of Yarikawa.


The Spirit of Yarikawa’s Vengeance

To start the mythic quest players first need to talk to Yamato. He is located to the west of Rebel’s Last Stand in Toyotama region. Talk to Yamato and he’ll explain what the quest is about.

Find Yarikawa Shrines

The first objective of the quest is to find the Yarikawa Shrines. The search area will be marked for these shrines. Yamato will explain that burning flower releases white smoke. In the search areas, look for the white smoke to locate the shrines.

The first shrine is to the southwest side of the circle, next to a survivor’s camp. If you can’t find it, just look for white smoke and follow it. The message calls for death to Heitaro. Players will then have to go to the camp and talk to a peasant by the fire and follow him to Heitaro.


The second shrine is to the northwest side of the circle, right next to a bridge by the river. The message will tell players to kill Mongols. Follow the wind to the camp but, the Spirit has been to the camp first. Examine the bodies and talk to the prisoner in the bamboo cage.

The third shrine is located in the very center of the circle, in the ruins. Go to the shrine but the message will already be taken. Players will then follow the sound of combat. Follow the sound and go down the cliff to an old house. Crawl through the gap under the wall on the opposite side and examine the clues spread across the house.

The fourth shrine is visible when players leave the house. It’s directly to the north. The message calls for the spirit to kill Jin Sakai, the protagonist, in the Garden of the Gods.

Garden of the Gods

Garden of the Gods is located to the south from the center of the circle. Garden of the Gods is a flowery grove with statues and there is a shrine there too. Read the scroll and Jin will face the Spirit of Yarikawa.


How to Defeat Spirit of Yarikawa

A duel with the Spirit of Yarikawa is open of the easiest fights in Ghost of Tsushima. Her attacks can easily be telegraphed and all of her attacks are blockable. Parry her attacks and unleash counterattacks to deal damage.

Since the Spirit of Yarikawa is vulnerable to stagger, use the Stone Stance and hit her with heavy attacks to break her defense. Once her defense is down, hit here with Heavenly Strike, if you have unlocked it.

Once her health is down, Jin will have learned the Dance of Wrath by watching her. Follow the prompts on the screen to use the attack on the Spirit of Yarikawa as the final blow.
