Chapter 2--Items and Abilities
This section covers items and abilities for all three Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven characters: Rikimaru, Ayame, and Tesshu. You'll find item descriptions and strategies, the locations of hidden items (such as the stone of power and Rikimaru's and Ayame's alternate weapons), special unlocked items, and a full description of all the abilities and how to unlock them.
Rikimaru's and Ayame's Items
This section covers descriptions and tactics for items available to Rikimaru and Ayame. Some of the items are available to both characters, and some of the items are unique to each character. You'll also find descriptions and tactics for items that are unlocked by achieving grand master status during missions. Additionally, this section includes the locations of hidden items, including the stone of power, Rikimaru's fugaku sword, and Ayame's dokuto poison blades.
Shuriken--A deadly thrown weapon. It's possible to toss shuriken at a foe and remain undetected, but it takes several shuriken to defeat an enemy. They're most useful as added damage potential against bosses and against a troublesome animal.
Blowgun--Deadly when used properly. Strike a completely unaware enemy with the kuji for a stealth kill (though it doesn't add as much kanji as a regular stealth kill). Against alerted enemies, the kuji poisons any struck enemy. The poison drains health over time but does wear off.
Caltrops--Scatter to injure pursuers. You toss caltrops behind you, even when standing. You can toss them in the path of an unaware guard. While he hops on one leg and tends to his injured foot, sneak up behind him and perform a stealth kill. Caltrops can be used on some bosses. Initiate a combo attack if the boss happens to step on a caltrop.
Smoke Bomb--Generates smoke to obscure and confuse opponents. Enemies are blinded by a smoke bomb and disoriented for a short period of time. Capitalize on the disorientation with a combo attack or a stealth kill.
