it was probably made using rice and persimmons. that would explain the added constant posture recover, which is the persimmon's effect when consumed
It helped me defeat Owl when he was pretty much near the end and I was all out of other healing items.
Helped me defeat shura Isshin.
Is it a stretch to say it looks similar to the red lumps. I know it's red bean paste but still...
In case anyone is wondering, if you use these in a gauntlet of strength, you will regain them after it's finished (win or lose)
Be careful about using this item in a tricky situation. Found out the hard way that using it locks you into an animation that's at least 2-3 seconds longer than the ones for any other healing item, which you also cannot cancel out of. Meaning that if you have enough time to get in a sip of the gourd, but not much longer, DON'T use this item. It seems odd that the game would punish you for thinking it would take the same amount of time to use, especially considering that you don't want to just waste such a rare and powerful item just to find that out. Was my last healing item I had against the final boss, with only a 1/4 of his last life bar left, used it when I though I had time, only to be slammed with a heavy overhead a couple seconds later that I was desperately hitting the button trying to dodge/block to survive. So not only did I lose the fight, but 1/3 of these items that you can only find per run.
If u eat a sticky rice ball in front of kuro does it respawn in your inventory. when you rest or is it lost for good?
(S for Sekiro, K for Kuro.) When eaten in front of Kuro after receiving 2x- S: This is... very good... K: That it is, that it is. When talking to Kuro immediately after- K: How was the rice ball? S: It was delicious. K: I bet it was. Ever since I was little, I've enjoyed making sweets. I used to always sneak into the kitchen back at the Hirata estate. Maybe one day... I'll open up a tea house if I ever have the time. ALL IN ALL, NOT WORTH TO WASTE AN OP EZ MODE ITEM ON 3 LINES ABOUT OPENING A TEA SHOP Nowhere said the actual dialog that was associated with the item, hope this helps.
How long does it last though
Dont get fooled by the "medium Vitality Recovery" text on description. This consumable is the most overpowered***** ever made. it heals you to full with 10 beads(with shinobi healing passives) on top of that there is no way you get posture broken with this. Very effective against the bossfights near the end that troubles you.
There are two variants of this item. The one described above and then the one made from Kuro's rice. "Sweet, sticky rice ball made by Kuro using rice from the Child of Rejuvenation. Slowly grants medium Vitality recover and constant Posture recovery over time. Once when the Wolf was starving his father wordlessly handed him a rice ball. It was astoundingly delicious. This one is sure to taste just as good."
Why is there a limit on how many items you can hold in your inventory??????????????????
you get two after you give him the rice even without having gathered the ingredients
Kuro gave me 2, even though I have not yet gathered all the divine ingredients. I'm not sure whether the first "1x" part of this page is wrong, or the requirements for receiving the second ball are wrong.
Used it in front of kuro when received, it triggers dialog. Once you rest, it comes back. You can use it a second time but after that it's over. It's probably a "freeby" the first time for the dialog.
Is this infinite uses? I used it in front of Kuro to trigger the Dialog and still had it in my inventory. Have not used it since then.
