You will need all the items you can get to progress in the perilous world of Sekiro Shadows Die Twice. Although most of these can be acquired by exploring the environment, others can only be purchased. It is for this purpose, you should know about a couple of farming routes and methods to farm Sen (money) in Sekiro Shadows Die Twice.
How to Make Money in Sekiro
Sen, the in-game currency, is the primary source of all transactions with the vendors and merchants in Sekiro. Being a world that is bent on killing and violence, the ideal way to acquire Sen would also be through enemy eliminations.
Sen Farming Method #1
This route requires you to first make your way to the Sculptor’s Idol in Sunken Valley. You will be able to gain access to this area after defeating the first main boss Gyoubu Oniwa and passing Ashina Castle.
In this cave-like area, there is an enemy right at the entrance of it. From the Sculptor’s Idol, head back and kill this foe for 52 Sen. Now return to the Sculptor’s Idol and repeat the process.
This is rather easy since you will always be stealth killing the enemy as you approach him from behind. If you keep at it, you will be able to earn 52 Sen per kill totaling to over 12,000 Sen in an hour.
It should also be noted that the number above do not put into account the use of a Sen-boosting item like Mibu Balloon of Wealth. Should you equip that, you will maximize the amount of Sen you can loot off of the killed enemy.
Sen Farming Method #2
Again, to maximize the Sen collected from enemies, it is advised to go with the Mibu Balloon of Wealth and the Loaded Axe Prosthetic Tool if you have unlocked the Fang and Blade upgrade.
Heading to the Ashina Castle Gate, you will need to grapple onto the trees behind the castle gate once you get rid of the rifleman.
In the distance, you can make out two enemies with hats. When approached, they may use their hats as defensive shields but these can be broken easily via your Prosthetic Axe.
Use your offensive pressure to put them down and each kill will award you with 135 Sen. The whole ordeal takes about a minute. Therefore, by the magic of mathematics, you can gather over 16,000 Sen in an hour that is quite a decent amount to purchase items.
This is how you can make Sen in Sekiro Shadows Die Twice. If there is anything else that you would like to add, be sure to let us know!
