The Raven Feathers are an item that are off the beaten path, but can be found pretty early on in the game with a little cheesing of the A.I. In the Bamboo Thicket Slope area of the Hirata Estate area you can find yet another Shinobi Tool to use. This guide will explain how to get to the guarded Raven’s Feathers to make the Raven Mist Shinobi Tool.
How to get the Raven Mist Tool in Sekiro
The Raven Mist tool is a unique Shinobi tool as it allows the player to slip away from attackers in a mist. To get this powerful item you will need to explore the Bamboo Thicket Slop a little bit. If you spawn at the Bamboo Slope Location via Fast Travel you can simply walk up the stairway from the spawn and then grapple up to a clearing on the left hand side.
From there you’re going to want to drop down into the running river and swim against the current. There will be a grapple point a little ways up. Grapple to that point and then follow the wall on the right until you reach a doorway that is blocked by bamboo. Break the bamboo and then enter the cave. You come upon a three story Pagoda with a character awaiting you.
This purple ninja character is not friendly. He is guarding the Raven Mist Feathers that you need to make the tool . Fortunately, you do not need to fight the ninja. You can try to sneak past or brute force your way past while keeping him at bay. Open the doors to the building and then the Raven feathers are right inside the door. Collect the items and then head back to the Sculptor to create the Mist Raven Shinobi Tool.
