How to Cure Dragonrot in Sekiro Shadows Die Twice?

To cure Dragonrot in Sekiro Shadows Die Twice, you’ll have to first obtain the Dragonrot Blood Sample item. With that in hand, head over to the NPC called Emma the Physician. Hand over the Dragonrot Blood Sample to her. In return, you’ll get two items: Recovery Charm and Dragon’s Blood Droplet. The next step is to mosey on over to your nearest Sculptor’s Idol. With the Recovery Charm in hand, give the Dragon’s Blood Droplet as an offering, and voila; everyone’s Dragonrot has been healed.

Incidentally, if you want to cure yourself, you might want to pay a visit to the merry old chap called Pot Noble Harunaga. You can find him on a large rock in the water to the right of the Hirata Estate bridge, living in a large pot. In fact, all you’ll see of him is his gross, long-fingered, skeletal hand. From him, you can buy the Divine Grass, which cures all status abnormalities and restores Vitality fully. Mind you, the only currency he accepts are carp scales (for more on those, visit our Sekiro Treasure Carp Scale Locations – Where to Find Pink Carps guide). Also, this is for healing yourself; for Dragonrot, which is a plague that harms others, use the method described above.

And so, that’s basically how you can cure Dragonrot in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. If you need further assistance, do check out some of our other guides on Sekiro, including Prosthetic Tools Locations and How to Upgrade Prosthetic Tool.
