      Monks? Where? What? It isn't linked to a page, and googling just brings up the bosses by that name. Can you specify?

        May 3rd comment here. Still more effective to use candy instead of spiritfall (same duration, does not cost spirit emblem) You would have to be NG5+ and desperate to use this item I'd imagine

        • Another thing that sucks about the sugars is that it seems to take Sekiro a half an hour to do his little dance that applies the sugar. Its a piece a candy FFS. Why does he have to do a little dance? IT should just be a popping candy in mouth animation. You can only use 3 per battle and they only last 30 seconds. The least they can do is have the animation not take so damn long.

            Omfg the amount of sugar I've wasted thinking they stack!! after sometime I looked at the bottom left corner under my health bar it only had one symbol ....I wanted to choke myself

            • As I have said before, The Monks at Senpou Temple tend to drop 1-3 Ako's Sugar when they do drop. I've noticed the unarmed monks drop Ako's while the Polearm Monks seem drop Ungo's Sugar. I will do more farming here to get specific amounts and try to keep my data to give percentages of drop chance/amount.

                Sugars do not stack - my best reasoning would be because they are listed as a "stance" in the item description. I've tested it, most recently sugar consumable will always replace previously used one.
