Farming Fulminated Mercury in Sekiro

Fulminated Mercury is a very valuable crafting material in the game, and it’s used for various tier 5 and 6 upgrades for your Shinobi Prosthetic Tools.

In our experience with Sekiro, we’ve found that the best way to farm Fulminated Mercury is by heading to Ashina Depths, at the area right after the Poison Pool Sculptor’s Idol. This is where you’ll face one of the Snake Eyes mini-bosses, and there’s a chance of Fulminated Mercury dropping from the regular gunmen enemies in this area.

So, in essence, you’re going to want to farm the gunmen in this area. Fulminated Mercury is an extremely rare drop, so it’s likely going to take you a while to get all the materials you need. However, there is a way to make the process a little easier.

Using the Bell Demon

If you head to Senpou Temple, you can ring the bell to give yourself the Sinister Burden. This will make enemies a lot stronger, but it also increases your chances of getting rare and more valuable drops from killing them.

Ring the bell, then head back to the Poison Pool to farm the gunmen for Fulminated Mercury. Whenever you’re done farming, just use the Bell Demon key item in your inventory to dispel the Sinister Burden. This will revert all enemies in Sekiro back to their regular strength.

It’s not a perfect method, but it should at least help you out a little in upgrading your Tools.

That’s all you need to know about how to farm Fulminated Mercury in Sekiro. Be sure to check our Sekiro guide wiki for more tips and information on the game.
