If you’re like most Oninaki players, your inventory is probably chock-full of Shadestones that you have no idea how to use. That’s why we’re here with a guide on how to equip and change Shadestones. *Warning: Minor Spoilers Ahead*
How to Equip and Change Shadestones in Oninaki
Acting as a means to modify and enhance your weapons in Oninaki, Shadestones are introduced early on in the game and continue to be given to you as drops from enemies and as items from chests.
You won’t be able to readily equip them to weapons, however, until after you’ve defeated Kushi following his possession by the Night Devil. This occurs roughly halfway through Oninaki’s story.
Where You Can Equip Shadestones
Following the Kushi boss fight, head to Deto and then head to the left side of the map. There should be a new marker that looks like a golden rectangle to the left of the second save point.
Head to the marker, and you’ll find yourself at the Alchemist’s Shop. Speak to the shopkeep, and you’ll then be able to select the Equip Shadestones option from his shop menu. This is likewise where you swap out Shadestones that are currently equipped to your weapons for better ones.
So, to summarize:
- Complete the Kushi Boss Fight
This occurs halfway through Oninaki’s story.
- Head to Deto and go to the Alchemist’s Shop
The shop is found on the left side of the map, just to the left of the second save point.
- Speak to the Alchemist
Doing so will open a menu you can equip and swap out Shadestones through.
