Scale The Wall By The Fisherman
Once you reach the castle, swim across the river. Head to the fishing peasant, and scale the walls near the waterfall. This is a linear path, but be careful as some guards may see you as you climb!
6. Sneak Into Lord Shimura's Quarters - Tips
Avoid Combat As Much As Possible
It would be best to avoid combat as much as possible. The castle is full of guards that can easily gang up on you. Stay low and prioritize breaking the enemy's line of sight to avoid getting caught!
Recommended Armor: Ghost Armor
It is recommended to use the Ghost Armor when sneaking around the castle. Enemies will be more slow when detecting you, giving you much more time to reposition if you find yourself in an unfavorable position!Check Out The All Armor List Here!
