This time we’re taking a look at the Five Gifts for Kikka (3) quest, which has you gathering a single ascetic’s beads.

Toukiden Item - ascetic's beads

Generally, you can use the collection records option – visible from the Start menu – to find which age items can be collected in (you have to be in the guild hall to see it). The problem is, if you’ve never scavenged the item before the records menu is useless. Worse yet, your Tenko will not be able to collect items on a scavenger run that you haven’t previously found in the world. In other words, you need to actually pick up an ascetic’s beads before you can take advantage of those perks.

The ascetic’s beads can be found in the Age of Honor. There are a lot of different missions that take place in the Age of Honor, but the first time you’ll encounter it in single player is chapter 2. I recommend playing the Ups & Downs mission which has you killing ten aurwings. That being said, any mission that takes place in the Age of Honor will do.

Here are the other quests in the series:
