Divine Confetti

divine_confetti-quick-item-sekiro-wiki-guide

 Confetti imbued with a divine blessing made for driving away apparitions.

The paper is made ceremoniously, whereby pulp is spread thin using water from the exalted Fountainhead.
          As the gods bless the waters, so too will the confetti bless one who basks in its touch, allowing attacks to connect with apparition-type enemies.

Divine Confetti is a Quick Item in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. It is used to provide Sekiro the ability to attack ghost-like enemies with powerful attacks distinguished by a bright purple glow on Kusabimaru.

 Divine Confetti Usage

  • Adds a special purple glow to Sekiro's weapon, similar to Terror.
  • The effect lasts for 1 minute.
  • Increases weapon damage against ALL enemies. [Source]
  • Increases weapon damage against standard enemies by 25%.
  • Dramatically increases weapon damage against apparition-type enemies. Multiple attacks will dispel the effect that these enemies do, so hit them often when your blade is coated.
  • These enemies include:

Where to Find Divine Confetti

Ashina Outskirts, and the Memorial Mobs for 300 sen each after defeating Corrupted Monk at the Fountainhead Palace and receiving the Dragon's Tally Board.

Before unlocking the unlimited confetti, you can find them at:

  • Small chance to drop from Blue-Robed Samurai  near the Upper Tower - Antechamber Sculptor's Idol located in Ashina Castle. (Chance increased in Patch 1.03).
    • This is the first place early game to viably farm the Confetti, as well as Scrap Magnetite upgrade material.
  • Old Hag - You may use up to 3 Mibu Balloons (any type) one at a time near her to get an Ungo's Sugar, Ako's Sugar, and a Divine Confetti. All 3 balloons may be of the same type.
  • Ashina Outskirts. - 1x Located just before the Underbridge Valley Sculptor's Idol in Ashina Outskirts.
  • Hirata Estate - From Hirata Estate - Main Hall idol; Continue past the burning buildings to where the group of enemies are. To the right is a building that you can enter, the confetti is in the center room of this building.
  • Hirata Estate - Hirata Audience Chamber idol. Turn 180 away from  Lady Butterfly's room and break through the wall directly in front of you. To the right are two enemies, and just past them is a shinobi door that you can wallhug to access a hidden room. 2x confetti and 1x Prayer Bead  are here.
  • Ashina Depths - Water Mill idol. Face back towards the village before the idol. Directly across the small bridge is a building that can be entered, 1x confetti is inside.
  • Ashina Depths - Water Mill idol. Cross the large bridge past O'Rin of the Water and continue on until you reach the building with many enemies in front of it. On the front-right side of it is an area where you can crouch to get underneath it. Once underneath, to the left is a revolving floorboard to get inside. 5x confetti is in front of the statue.
  • Sunken Valley - Drop down the hole in the floorboards in Long-Arm Centipede Giraffe's room. Go straight and then left when it forks into two directions. Look up and to the right for a grapple point, and then grapple to another point directly across from the first. On the left is a room with many lizards and 1x confetti.
  • Sunken Valley Passage -  Inside the Serpent's Cave, you'll find 3x nearby a ledge that will allow you to grapple towards Ashina Depths. 
  • Fountainhead Palace - Inside the building of the noble courtyard, 2 can be found next to the hold in the ground where Sekiro can dive into.
  • Fountainhead Palace - From the Flower Viewing Idol, 3 can be found hidden behind the pagoda.
  • Fountainhead Palace - 2 can be looted next to Pot Noble Koremori.

 

Divine Confetti Notes & Tips

  • Can be paired with Ako's Sugar/Spiritfall to increase damage against all enemies, particularly useful in speedruns to reach the stagger threshold of certain bosses faster. 
  • It also deals chip damage, allowing you to deal vitality damage to a blocking enemy.
  • Certain attacks will negate the Divine Confetti buff, notably the Phoenix's Lilac Umbrella attack with the Projected Force skill (itself a very strong anti-apparition attack) as well as that of the Suzaku's Lotus Umbrella (note that the two non-elemental versions of the umbrella do not overwrite Divine Confetti).
  • Entering an area where Sekiro sheathes his sword will also negate the buff.
  • Performing a lightning reversal will negate the buff (needs confirmation).
  • The effects of Divine Confetti will persist underwater if cast before diving in. This provides a large damage buff against the underwater Headless fights that can be encountered after acquiring Mibu Breathing Technique.
  • Since the buff only affects Kusabimaru, using Combat Arts such as Prayer Strikes - Exorcism, or Senpou Leaping Kicks won't gain the benefit from it. High Monk combat art does have sword slashes, but they are few and performed at the end of the combo.
  • Since the Sabimaru combo incorporates the Kusabimaru in it's attacks, you can still benefit from the effects of the Divine Confetti. This is especially useful on the Improved Sabimaru (and it's upgraded variants) alternate combo, which uses both swords at the same time.

      I would like to add that Divine Confetti would protect you from taking chip damage from Headless when performing a deflect. The same is also true when deflecting Genichiro's Mortal Draw.

        Since half the minibosses in the game need this to defeat, it really is a***** choice to make it solely farmable all the way up till the monk. Should be purchasable in moderate quantities from a few of the vendors. Currently the game encourages the player to skip minibosses to save the resource for more important things.

          Come one, come all! Now selling tricked out Divine Confetti! What is that, you may ask? Simply put, it is a charm you can use to banish apparitions! That, and it not only makes your sword look edgy/cool, but it increases the damage! Surely a person of your type would enjoy these boxes of blessed paper! Now selling them at the fair price of 300 Sen! Yes, 300 Sen! (Offers only sold to those with a weird dragon coupon or something) Come on now, use that Bulging Coin Purse of yours and buy the only worthwhile buff in the entire game!

              I keep getting this bug during boss fights where the Confetti will run out super early. It always happens when i'm using shinobi tools like the lilac loaded umbrella or the Mist Raven. Anyone know what might be going on?

                Why was the note about it applying a flat damage buff removed? Multiple people in the comments have tested it and say it applies a small damage boost to EVERYTHING, it's just that it deals more to apparitions.

                  The word confetti is translated bad because they are not small piece of papers (coriandoli), they are sweets, but is possible to do confetti also with coriander seeds

                    Idk if it's already mentioned somewhere, but instead of the the balloons in front of the hag, you can dispel the bell demon. If you stand by her and use the demon to dispel the curse, she will say something like "yes, that's how you pray" and reward you for your devotion with one of the sugars or confetti. Hope this saves some balloons for some people

                      this gives a minimum 25% dmg buff vs all enemies. Increases to up to 37.5% bonus dmg vs apparitions, it's something like 31-32% vs undead. Someone else can add it to the article if they want I'm sick of trying to contribute to this wiki.

                        "It also deals chip damage, allowing you to deal posture damage to a blocking enemy." Enemies already take posture damage when they block your attacks. Is this supposed to say 'vitality damage'?

                          You do NOT, I repeat, Do NOT need to use Divine Confetti to hit O'Rin or the Illusion Corrupted Monk. The only enemies Divine Confetti allows you to hit are Headless, and the Shichimen Warriors. O'Rin is always damageable, but will eventually become Ethereal to prevent stunlocking. Illusion Corrupted Monk is NOT an Apparition, and can be damaged without Divine Confetti. She is vulnerable to Snap Seeds three times before becoming immune. If Divine Confetti does anything, it's a VERY minor damage boost. Something that is not going to help you out much in a casual playthrough due to the usually slower paced fights resulting in you only getting a few hits in before the buff runs out.

                            I've heard that Demon of Hatred and the boss of Hirata Revisted (not naming them here just to avoid spoiling it for anyone) take increased damage from this. Is this because Confetti just gives a generic damage buff or are these two treated as Apparitions/supernatural in some way (as the boss fought in Hirata 2 is a memory rather the real deal)?
