Finding the Ghost of Tsushima blood-stained shrine solution unlocks the Bloodborne armor on Iki Island. Don’t get too excited; it’s not the hunter uniform from Yharnam, it’s more like if Eileen the Crow were a samurai. So, to get the armor, you need to solve the riddle on the altar next to the shrine. However, the puzzle is very obtuse, a real headache. That’s why we’ve put together our Blood Stained Shrine Solution – Ghost of Tsushima Bloodborne Armor Iki Island guide to help you out.
How to Solve Ghost of Tsushima Blood Stained Shrine & Get Bloodborne Armor on Iki Island
To solve the Blood-Stained Shrine in Ghost of Tsushima and get the Bloodborne armor on Iki Island, you need to find the solution to the riddle next to the altar. It reads: “The first green of spring sickens to black, decaying, plagued by blood and beast. Hunter, reject death’s allure. Prepare to duel man’s frailty.” The first line, of course, tells the story of Yharnam, the monster-infested city from Bloodborne. The other two lines are the actual riddle that you have to solve.
So, it calls you “hunter.” To do that, you need to put on the Kensei armor, which you earn by completing the Six Blades of Kojiro Mythic Tale. If you don’t have it already, check out our Kensei Armor Ghost of Tsushima Six Blades of Kojiro Location guide. Once you’ve donned the Kensei outfit, you have to heal yourself in front of the altar. That’s the solution to the Iki Island Blood-Stained Shrine in Ghost of Tsushima and get the Bloodborne Armor. If your health is full, climb up the cliffs around the shrine and jump down to take fall damage.
After you’ve healed yourself in front of the shrine, a cutscene will play, in which a bunch of crows will envelop you and “make” your new armor. You’ll emerge with the Yharnam Hel and Yharnam Vestments for your troubles. They both look really cool. By the way, if you don’t know where the shrine is in the first place, check out our video below.
