Complete quests and track your objectives

How to track quests in the Daisho samurai game

Daisho: Survival of a Samurai offers two types of quests that you can complete every day: Story and World Quests. The story quests represent your main path toward victory and by completing them you will unlock more areas and content in the world.

The World quests are more like additional ways of earning more rewards in the game. A good tip here is to switch between the two and track down the ones that give you the most rewards. This will redirect the arrow in front of your character so you can find the right quest in no time.

To do that, press the Quests button at the bottom of your screen, press the quest that you would like to track, and press “Start Tracking” as you see above.

Search for hidden treasures

Another fantastic way to get more valuable items and resources in this game is to search for hidden treasures. You will find these around the world in places that you wouldn’t expect.

They can be in hidden corners, behind bushes, or even on small hills that require a bit of effort to reach. usually come in the form of wooden chests or barrels that contain coins, potions, or building materials.

To loot them, once you are close enough, press the open chest action button. Keep an eye out for these and you will be sure to get some nice rewards!

Repair and replace your equipment

Repairing equipment  in Daisho: Survival of a Samurai

Daisho: Survival of a Samurai gives you the opportunity to equip your character with various pieces of equipment such as pants, vests, sandals, and different weapons and tools. The more frequently you use these items, the more they wear down, whether you engage in combats or chop trees, or mine some stone.

The durability of your items may be different depending on their quality. Soon as they start dropping below a certain point, you will see a samurai-shaped character on the top-right of your screen. This will let you know which item has started to deteriorate and how much (yellow color is usually a sign that you should repair it).

To avoid this, you should always keep an eye on the condition of your items and make sure to repair them when needed. If an item turns red, it becomes almost useless and you should repair it as soon as possible.

You can repair your items by visiting the Workshop in your village or at those you may find outside of it. Each repair costs gold coins.

Do your best while in Hunting Grounds

Exiting Hunting Grounds by using one Travel Ticket

Hunting Grounds are also an excellent way to farm valuable items that can help you progress faster in the game. This area can be accessed by visiting the docks inside your estate.

Once you enter, make sure you gather as many resources and defeat as many beasts as possible and that you do not leave any uncollected items behind.

Once you exit, your progress will reset and any defeated enemies or bests will respawn. While in Hunting Grounds, also make sure you have at least one Travel Ticket in your bag so you can quickly return to your estate. Otherwise, you will have to go all the way back to exit that zone.

To get more Travel Tickets in Daisho: Survival of a Samurai, visit the Boon of Wanderer NPC near the docks inside your estate. He can offer you 1 Travel Ticket every 8 hours.

Store your items whenever possible

As you explore the world outside your estate and receive various items from gathering or looting your enemies, you should make sure to store them in your storage and also to sell the excess.

That’s because your inventory is quite limited in terms of slots and it will fill up quickly if you keep looting. Additionally, it is wise to use your gems to get some extra slots for both inventory and storage so you can keep looting and gathering more stuff without having to worry about it.

Healing is the key to winning tough fights

As you explore the world of Daisho: Survival of a Samurai and engage in combat, it is important to keep an eye on your HP bar. Your character will suffer damage depending on how tough your opponents are, so it is important to heal yourself whenever possible.

This can be done using healing potions that you find around the world or by crafting from plants at Pharmacia inside your village, or by simply using the plants you gathered. However, to maximize your healing effect, it is recommended to always use the gathered plants to craft potions.

Similarly, you should also consider upgrading the Survivor branch on the Talents page, to increase your character’s health regeneration and other stats that will help you survive longer and defeat more enemies.

There is a better way to attack

As a beginner to Daisho: Survival of a Samurai you might be tempted to keep pressing the action button when engaging in combats, but that’s not necessary.

A better way is to press and hold the action button and the samurai character will continue attacking its target until it’s defeated. This tactic is much more efficient as it will also automatically follow its target if it runs away as deer and other animals do.

Increase your prosperity level

After constructing your first building/structure inside your village, the Rent Collector will appear near the entrance of the main building. This character is in charge of collecting rent from the other houses for a maximum duration of 4 hours. You can collect your coins by interacting with this character, and the number of coins you get depends on your Prosperity Level.

The higher your Prosperity Level is, the more coins you’ll get. To increase it, you will need to construct new buildings and decorations in your estate/village. So check back regularly to collect your coins and increase your Prosperity Level to maximize your earnings.

Complete Merchant’s Orders

Fulfilling Merchant's Orders

Gold coins are the main currency in this game and you will need more and more as you progress. The best way to get some extra coins is to complete Merchant’s Orders, which is basically selling your stuff excess. The NPC responsible for this can be found on the right side of the main building in your estate, near its caravan.

After interacting with him it will offer you 3 choices where each order requires a certain number and types of items to be completed.

Once you complete an order, you will receive some coins as a reward. The more items an order requires the more coins you will get, but it will also be more difficult to fulfill the request.

Take advantage of the Shop freebies

Shop freebies in Daisho: Survival of a Samurai

While primary resources like wood or stone can be quite easy to find and gather, more complex resources are more difficult to come by. The Village Shop is a great place to get these as it offers free items every day.

As you see in the above image, some can be collected instantly while others may require watching a short ad. Additionally, you can use your Gems to buy some extra resources if you need them.

Keep on developing your village

By adding more buildings to your village you will unlock more features that will help your progress, like more coins or items. Some buildings will also help you produce healing positions or even dismantle items that you no longer need.

You can also create building materials like clay bowls, bricks, or flitches. So keep expanding your city and make sure to always have the right resources for each new building.
