Pot Noble Koremori
|Location||Fountainhead Palace - Through Hidden Path|

Pot Noble Koremori Information
Pot Noble Koremori, much like his counterpart from Hirata Estate, is a slender arm reaching out of a pot that asks you kindly for Treasure Carp Scales in exchange for other items. His true appearance is unknown as he is never seen outside of the pot.
- Location: Can be found in the Fountainhead Palace at the Near Pot Noble idol.
- Progression: After trading several scales for items, talking with Koremori rewards the player with Truly Precious Bait.
- Combat: Players may not kill Pot Noble Koremori
- Rewards: Talking to Pot Noble Koremori after feeding his Truly Precious Bait to the Great Colored Carp rewards the player with 1x Lapis Lazuli and Koremori gains Harunaga's Vendor Inventory.
How To Get Here:
- To get there, start at the Palace Grounds idol. Enter the building in front of you and turn left to open the front door to the palace. Exit the doors and immediately turn right, cross the waterfall and jump off the platform. The grappling point will be on your right as you jump. Follow the path to the Near Pot Noble idol.
- You can get here sooner by climbing the palace stairs from the front (on the way to the Great Sakura idol from the Flower Viewing Stage idol). Just turn left while facing the palace doors (if you haven't opened them yet they'll be the ones that say "doesn't open from this side"), go across the water and look for a grapple point up and to the left. It will be untargetable until after you jump off the ledge to line yourself up with it a bit better. Straight shot from there.
- After trading enough scales, exhausting Koremori's dialogue will result in him asking if he can tell you his secrets. He will give you Truly Precious Bait and ask you to feed it to the Great Colored Carp without letting anyone see. Koremori also tells you to disregard Pot Noble Harunaga's request to feed the Great Colored Carp.
Option A: Ring the Feeding Bell and give the Great Carp Precious Bait.
Option B: Ring the Feeding Bell and give the Great Colored Carp Pot Noble Koremori's Truly Precious Bait
Option C: Ring the Feeding Bell and give the Great Colored Carp Pot Noble Harunaga's Truly Precious Baits
Option A: Great Colored Carp is not harmed and the NPC next to the Feeding Bell grants you Treasure Carp Scales.
- Giving Precious Bait 1 times rewards 1x Treasure Carp Scale.
- Giving Precious Bait 2 times rewards 3x Treasure Carp Scales.
- Giving Precious Bait 3 or more times rewards a stern lecture about moderation from the Feeding Attendant.
- Possibly require to wait more time after the first two feedings [more testing required].
Option B: Great Colored Carp and Harunaga die. Returning to Koremori's Pot rewards you with 1x Lapis Lazuli.
- Koremori is transformed into a Carp in the water below his Pot and his inventory expands to include Harunaga Stock.
Option C: Great Colored Carp and Koremori die. Returning to Harunaga rewards you with 1x Lapis Lazuli and his inventory expands.

- "Did you bring me any scales? If you have any, I'll reward you handsomely.."
- "You there... if you meet someone else in a pot like mine, ignore his requests... hes a traitor to our clan... he was banished for trying to kill the Great Carp..."
- "Most of my scales have returned... heh heh..."
- "You there... You've done a remarkable job thus far... I feel like I can trust you... Will you listen to my tale?"
- "You there... Any interest in hearing my secrets?"
- "Take care with that bait... very very quietly... heheh.. heh heheh..."
- "Bring me some scales next time..."
- Those with Red Eyes are dangerous, and filled a with rage that is difficult to control through the power of man alone. They do, however, fear the flame above all else. This loathing of flames is shared by the undead inhabitants of Mibu Village.
- The Legend of the Dragon's Gate tells the story of carp that may transform into dragons if they can leap up a massive waterfall. As a consequence, carp are considered symbols of success and transformation in Japanese culture.
- Red Eyed Carp are considered incomplete creatures that lack the ideal number of scales, but their eyes are everlasting. Collecting special scales and the term "everlasting" are details associated with the Dragons of Dark Souls, while imperfection is a trait linked to serpents, which are considered imperfect Dragons.
