Starting Location: Three Actions, Three Illusions
Meet Norio in Akashima Village
Press to speak with Norio. This is A Norio Tale 2 of 9.
Travel to the Mongol camp with Norio
Head out of the village, following Norio. Follow the road, over a bridge and towards a hut. Norio will mount his horse so call your own and ride with him. You’ll ride towards the coast, crossing fields and a long wooden bridge.
Defeat the Mongol
There is one solitary blue-armored Mongol in your path. Put all your reflexes and abilities to the test to defeat this mighty foe with one tap of a butto.
Go to the granary balcony
Climb up the ladder into the hut in front of you and head out to the balcony.
Look for Hochi
You’ll now have another survey scene. Use the and to look at Hochi, a signal cannon and the meeting point.
You will then have to take out a group of Mongols in any way you see fit. You could try the stealthy way, but to be honest, you’re bound to be seen at some point as there is little in the way of cover. Furthermore, these are the blue armor Mongols so they should be easy enough prey for your normal combat abilities. You’ll have to take out a group of about 12, with only a couple of Brutes in there to cause any trouble.
Protect Hochi from the Mongols
You’ll now have to kill another group of about 6 Mongols, who amazingly are standing around in the camp despite you just having caused a ruckus and slain a large group of their kin. Anyway, these are basic swordsmen Mongols and should pose no threat. Wipe them out.
Speak with Hochi
Return to Hochi, still underneath the shelter, to finish this mission.
This finishes the Three Actions, Three Illusions quest in Ghost of Tsushima.
