Key Takeaways
  • Yasuke’s Armor Set can be obtained by beating William Adams.
  • William can be found inside a cave located in the Shiba area of Edo.
  • The boss can be easily beaten if players use a fast weapon like the Katana.
  • Additional rewards can also be obtained by beating William which makes the fight worth it.
  • Yasuke’s Armor Set is a strong choice of armor for creating the best build in the game.

Yasuke’s Armor Set can be obtained by beating William Adams who can be found inside a cave located in Edo.

You heard that right: the main character of the original Nioh returns as a boss in Rise of the Ronin. It is a nice easter egg by the developers, and the boss fight itself is also fun. As for William’s location, head to the point marked in the image above.

You will come across a cave entrance near the shore in Shiba in the Edo region. Inside, you’ll have to use the grappling rope or a gun to break through a blockade. As soon as you get inside the cave, the boss fight with William Adams begins.

I was easily able to beat William using my Katana’s Shinto Munen-Ryu combat style. He only has one deadly combo where he charges at your character with a barrage of attacks. However, it is not that difficult to perfect parry his martial arts, which allows you to punish him more during battle.

After killing William Adams, you will not only obtain Yasuke’s Armor Set but also a powerful Katana known as the Mikume Mitsutada. Additionally, you can also get your hands on a strong Polearm by opening up the treasure chest inside the cave after beating William in Rise of the Ronin.

This concludes my guide on how you can obtain Yasuke’s Armor Set by beating William in Rise of the Ronin. I have entailed the exact location of the cave where you can find and fight William Adams to get Yasuke’s Armor Set and more rewards.
