Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Sculptor’s Idol Explained – Bonfires, Uses

Similar to Bonfires in Dark Souls games, Sekiro Shadows Die Twice also has multiple resting points called Sculptor’s Idols. Like Bonfires, Sculptor’s Idols also serve multiple purposes. In our Sekiro Sculptor’s Idol Guide, we have explained everything you need to know about them.

Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Sculptor’s Idol

First off, Sculptor’s Idols act as checkpoints for players. There are multiple Sculptor’s Idols scattered across every region of the game. Interacting with any of them will activate a respawn point.

What it means is that each time you die; you will respawn at the last Sekiro Sculptor’s Idol you rested at.

Therefore, it is ideal to find as many Sculptor’s Idols as possible. However, despite the difficulty, each area in Sekiro Shadows Die Twice holds a fixed number of Sculptor’s Idols in fixed locations.

If you have played Dark Souls or Bloodborne, you would definitely know what I’m talking about.

In addition to this, resting at a Sculptor’s Idol or respawning at one replenishes your Healing Gourds, Spirit Emblems, and HP but there is a catch.

Whenever you rest at a Sculptor’s Idol, the non-boss and non-NPC enemies in the area respawn. Plus, if you ran away from a boss battle after the resurrection, the boss should also rejuvenate his full HP.

This is also an efficient way of *farming some XP* and *Sen*.

Sculptor’s Idol Uses

Another great feature about the Sculptor’s Idol is that you can enhance Wolf’s abilities. First off, you can unlock skills for him.

You can also enhance his physical attributes like Vitality and Posture. This can be done by using Prayer Beads that you typically obtain from defeating a boss. Finally, you can enhance your Attack Power.

As previously, the Sculptor’s Idols act as checkpoints so another purpose of them is to let you fast travel between them.

Undoubtable, fast travelling can save you a lot of time. Instead of fighting your way back to the previous Sculptor’s Idol, wasting substantial resources, you can simply fast travel there.

This is particularly helpful if you somehow missed an item in a previous area and need it. Moreover, there is no such thing such as Lordvessel involved in unlocking the ability to travel between Sculptor’s Idols or Bonfires.

This is so far everything we have in our Sekiro Bonfires/Sculptor’s Idols Guide. If there is anything else that you would like to add, be sure to let us know!
