WINDSHIFT – General Tips

General Tips


  • Movement: Arrow Keys
  • Select: Spacebar
  • Menu: E
  • Change character (in menu): C

Money management: 

You don’t have to use the Inn at all in the beginning as healing items are rather abundant, especially if you pick up every chest. Though later it will be small change to use them in comparison to buying items.

Save up for the best Equipment you can get currently.

Area 1:

The first map is rather self-explanatory and not particularly complicated or notable. If you are done with an area simply follow the road.

Area 2:

When you are in the second area, before fighting the fish boss get to level 10 first as you will get a lot of Magatama from it.

When you get to a point where it says you ‘have to go to the village first’ you need to go around the other path. It took me quite a bit to figure that out.

Area 3:

The third map has a sword icon in the lower left corner where you can farm quite nicely.

I recommend being at least Level 15 with decent defence equipment for both characters as Ohatsu uses multi-target attacks. Additionally you can get the Magatama you need to upgrade the second ring of the Husui-Plate fully. Sumire largely acts as your healer.

However the second fight with her is far more difficult, I recommend Level 20, Sumire needs to know the group heal.

Area 4:

In the fourth map you can find the casino to the North. Although it is called the casino the games aren’t gambling games, but mini-games. However the memory game is broken. The best way to gain Bills is the arena.

You can get there either by boat or via the secret bridge you find after defeating Ohatsu for a third time.
The third fight is similar to the second, having some more of the Husui Plate’s third ring unlocked would be good.

All the achievement related equipment can be acquired by different meant, I cannot recommend getting them through the casino on account of the sheer amount of grinding necessary in this already grindy game.

Area 5:

Entering the mountain is where I had to stop due to a map not loading.

You can use Mirror Shards to go back to a previous map when you are locked in an area.
