How to make Sekiro Shadows Die Twice even more difficult ?
At a certain stage of the adventure, you will have the opportunity to make the game even harder… On the other hand, you will be able to get more money and loot when you beat the various opponents.This is a very practical option and can be deactivated at any time to return to normal difficulty. If you are smart, you can take advantage of this mechanism set up by the From Software teams and use it to farm Sen (the currency) and increase your probability of obtaining rare loot.
To increase the difficulty of Sekiro Shadows Die Twice, you must go to Senpou Temple, Mt Kongo.Instead of going to the big bridge where you are attacked by the armoured warrior, go around the mountain, you will find a passage that will take you straight to an sculptor’s idol « bell demon’s temple » where you will find a large bell. If you approach the big bell, you will see the following message :
« Do not ring this bell.Inviting misfortune is an act of virtue, but only the stoutest of hearts should ever consider it. »
If you ring the bell then you will get the Bell Demon item from the bell and you can read :
« Sinister burden. A demonic spirit sealed within the iron belle of senpou temple. Possesses thos who ring the bell, strengthening ennemies around them. The bell demon confers hardship, but perhaps also slightly better spoils. Using this item has no particular effect aside from causing the demon to leave. »
Know that at this very moment, all the enemies you will meet in Sekiro Shadows Die Twice will be even more powerful than before! But, as explained above, the counterpart will be a higher than normal rate of Sen (money) and loot.You can reverse the effect to return to a normal difficulty by using the « bell demon » item in your inventory.The curse will be lifted and you will see the message “Burden Dispelled”.
Use the bell as often as you want and to your advantage either to get money and items faster or simply to experience an even more intense adventure than it already is !
