Patch 1.04 is out, and it will help you get rare materials faster. Check out what you can collect, where, and how to use the bonus

On March 17th, Sega rolled out a new patch for Ishin. I just want to mention that the grinding for materials is now somewhat fixed, so the time needed to farm Dragon-related materials should go in your favor. There is also one great bonus added, Remunerative Materials Kit:

  • Sphere Seal: Greed x10
  • Sphere Seal: Kiwami x10

If you bring these to Blacksmith, you can enchance the empty slots with Greed. If you max out Greed with Kiwami Sphere 3 times, it will raise the material drop rate for 6% each! I added 3 on my main weapon and the real farming starts now!

Official Release notes for Like a Dragon: Ishin! Patch 1.04

"Hello RGG Fans!

Thank you for playing Like a Dragon: Ishin!
Patch 1.04 is now live with the following fixes and improvements:

Issues caused by Kijin-maru Kunishige
The following issues will occur when seven seals are set (all slots are filled) on Kijin-maru Kunishige:

  • All seals set on the Kijin-maru Kunishige will change to the first set seal
  • The item placed next to Kijin-maru Kunishige will change to another item
  • Depending on the item it changes to, the game may crash when the Equipment menu is opened

We have been investigating ways to fix the issue, but have discovered that some of the changed items cannot be restored due to technical issues.
In addition to fixing the problem, the following measures will be taken to apologize to those affected.
DLC weapons and Remunerative Materials Kit items can be picked up from Bakumatsu Bob, in the kitchen on the first floor of Teradaya.

  • Lost DLC weapons can now be re-obtained from Bakumatsu Bob.
  • Weapons: Bloody Sheen, Bonechewer, Waterdrop, Snowcap, Poet Immortal, Dragon's Clutch
  • Weapons that can be used without modification will retain their status.
  • Weapons: Kijin-maru Kunishige and seven seals of altered states, all other weapons.
  • Certain elements that cannot be restored.
  • Seals set on the Kijin-maru Kunishige that were changed due to the glitch cannot be restored.
  • Weapons that have been transformed into other items, as well as the seals that were set on that weapon, cannot be restored.
  • Replaced incorrect items changed or generated by defects with Bundle Blades.

Compensation Items
Items will be distributed to all customers who have installed the digital version pre-order bonus (Japanese Swords & Cannon Set).

Remunerative Materials Kit:
Sphere Seal: Kiwami x10
Sphere Seal: Greed x10

Balance Adjustments

  • Increased enemy item drop rates.
