Malcontent's Ring


An old ring well-suited for slender fingers. "Kingfisher" is engraved on the underside. Can be used to upgrade the Finger Whistle Prosthetic Tool.

Wearing this ring as you blow the finger whistle will create a somber tune.  The weeping voice is full of solitude and beauty. Possibly somber enough to temporarily quell a voice of rage.

Malcontent's Ring is a special Upgrade Material in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. It is required for unlocking the Malcontent upgrade to the Finger Whistle Prosthetic Tool. and requires that players defeat the Shichimen Warrior which spawns in the Guardian Ape's Burrow to obtain it.

      Does he not drop the ring if you don’t do that other stuff first? He’s there and I was gonna kill him but I guess I’ll go the other route first and kill this ape it mentions

        for anyone who didn't do the headless ape fight untill later, if you warp to the wedding cave door and back it seems to cause him to spawn

            "Kingfisher" is not the name of Sculptor's partner, as Malcontent states "the" Kingfisher is female, whereas Sculptor states his partner was male. "Kingfisher" is a type of bird, so the reading more than likely means the ring is simply named after the bird that the ring's whistle sounds like. So "Kingfisher" likely isn't a person at all -- not the Sculptor's partner NOR the name of the woman the finger originally belonged to.

              Added a small grammatical edit "you will need to have defeated the guardian ape" instead of "you will need to defeated the guardian ape"

                    Completing Mibu Village isn't necessarry for Shichimen Warrior's spawn. I have killed the Headless Ape and after that, went to Hidden Forest and killed the Drunkard boss then come back to Guardian Ape's Burrow and Shichimen Warrior was there.

                      You don't need to purchase Valley Apparitions Memo for the Shichimen Warrior to appear. I think he just appears once you've defeated Headless Ape and warp away.

                        I didn't buy the memo from Fujioka before I fought the Shichimen Warrior. I was travelling back to get a prayer bead I had forgotten and the headless apes idol was greyed out and when I went to see why, the fight began.

                          You have to buy the Valley Apparitions memo from Fujioka after severing the immortality of the headless ape for the warrior to spawn.

                            To get Fijuoka the info broker to sell the Valley Apparitions Memo you need to kill the headless ape it is near the poison pool idol in the area after you fight the mini boss there.
