Simply put, you will definitely want to find as many Lump of Fat Wax items as you can. Thankfully, there are a few known Lump of Fat Wax locations and a couple of solid Sekiro Lump of Fat Wax farming locations. You will want to note down all the areas where you can find the coveted item and that’s where we come in.
Sekiro Lump of Fat Wax Farming Location | Where to find the Lump of Fat Wax item
As stated above, there are few areas where you can find Lumps of Fat Wax in Sekiro Shadows Die Twice. Monks will drop them in the Senpou Temple Mt. Kongo area, for starters. You will also find a handful of them in that area of the game. Ashina Depths Hidden Forest, Mibu Village, and Water Mill locations should have a couple of Fat Wax items hidden, too.
Remember to look everywhere, using your grapple to reach new locations. These are typically the areas where you will find Lumps of Fat Wax. A good example of this is after you defeat Takujiro The Glutton in Ashina Depths Hidden Forest. After the fight, continue down the opposite direction in which you arrived. Eventually, you will be able to grapple to a ledge, where underneath, a Lump of Fat Wax should be waiting for you. Scour every nook and cranny and you should find a good number of Lump of Fat Wax items.
Clearing quests such as the Doujun’s questline will award you with Lumps of Fat Wax, as well. Completing the Doujun’s questline, for example, awards you with three Fat Wax lumps. The best way to get hold of the item, however, is to farm it.
There are two particularly good Sekiro Lump of Fat Wax farming locations. The earlier one is the Senpou Temple Mt. Kongo Idol location. Simply head to that location and kill the orange-robed monk enemies before running back to the Idol to rest and reset the area. They will drop Lumps of Fat Wax randomly. Just head up the path from the Idol, killing monks on the way. A note, though, the monks will only drop the coveted item after you fight Genichiro at the top of Ashina Castle.
The other farming method should prove a touch less dangerous, however, although it might be a little slower and is towards the end of the game. The Fountainhead Palace Flower Viewing Stage Idol will prove useful for farming Lumps of Fat Wax. Just as it is a great place to farm Lumps of Grave Wax.
Simply follow these steps and you should slowly but surely, build up a good number of Lump of Fat Wax items:
- Go to the Fountainhead Palace Flower Viewing Stage Idol
- Use a Mibu Balloon of Soul and Demon Bell if you wish (they should increase item drops)
- Enter the building behind the Idol
- Sneak up to and kill the flute playing squid-like enemy (there’s a second you can insta-kill a little further into the building)
- Run back to the Idol and rest
- Rinse and repeat
You can use the same method to farm Lump of Grave Wax items, too. Whatever Sekiro Lump of Fat Wax farming location you choose, remember to use Mibu Balloons and Demon Bell items to increase item drop numbers. Whichever area you head to, though, remember to be wary of enemies and keep up your guard. Now get out there and start farming for lumps of fat wax.
