Tamakazura Quest 

Like many NPCS in the Wild Hearts, Tamakazura will also have a quest in store for you. Among all the vendors and upgrade systems found in the game, the most valuable system is definitely the Restorative Baths Of Minato.

Fighting The Ameratsu

Before you face Ameratsu, ensure you have equipped the Mighty King Tusk armor, one of the most powerful early-game armors. This armor provides high defense, health, and an attack buff. Additionally, have a fusion karakuri loadout, such as Spring and Stake, for the battle.

Ameratsu is a formidable foe with powerful air and ground attacks. During the battle, you should make use of your fusion karakuri, particularly when Ameratsu is moving around the arena. Ameratsu’s second phase, called Rage Mode, makes his attacks deadlier. Use a crossbow to deal damage when he moves around.

After defeating Ameratsu, you’ll start the restoration of Minato and the Restorative Baths Quest.

Fighting Gold Shard

In the quest, you’ll need to hunt down a Kemono called Gold Shard. You’ll find the Gold Shard in Akikure Canyon.

Gold Shard is more challenging than previous Kemonos, using ranged attacks, including a deceptive Gold Shard attack. Approach it from the sides rather than from behind, and be cautious during its Rage Mode.

Fighting The Lava Back Kemono 

The next challenge is to fight the Lava Back Kemono, which is deadlier than its earlier counterpart. Equip an armor set with fire resistance and a water-based weapon to counter its fire attacks. You’ll find the Lava Back in Spirit Isle.

Speaking To Tamakazura 

After you have defeated Earth Breaker, you need to head back and go to the Minato baths. You will find that the paths have been restored, and Tamakazura has become the new owner. He will tell you that you can use baths to restore yourself and increase your health by some percentage. 

Upgrading Baths
