Veiled Edge Banners play a dual role as essential save points and efficient fast-travel markers in the dynamic realm of Rise of the Ronin. While their placement varies, these pivotal markers are strategically positioned throughout the game world. Notably, when encountered within Public Order or Unruly Area Events, the Veiled Edge Banner activates automatically, streamlining your journey and gameplay experience.

1.1 – Maita Castle

In “Rise of the Ronin,” the Veiled Edge Banner located at Maita Castle is a crucial point of interest, especially during the story mission “Follow Your Blade Twin.” Positioned high within the castle’s confines, this banner not only serves as a significant checkpoint but also plays a pivotal role in the game’s fast travel system.

1.3 Wakamiya Hachimangu Shrine

Secure the third and final Veiled Edge Banner, cleverly placed atop a mountain to the east of the map. Begin your journey from the central village, following the southern route towards a broken bridge. Cross using either the glider or an alternate path, leading you directly to the base of the Wakamiya Hachimangu Shrine, prominently situated on the mountain’s summit. Navigate the small, winding path up to the far side of the broken bridge, where a climb awaits to claim the Veiled Edge Banner. This achievement also unlocks the Wakamiya Hachimangu Shrine Landmark, marking a significant milestone in your adventure.

“Public Order” collectible events – also referred to as “Unruly Area” challenges – represent zones in a region where hostiles have established a presence. Your mission is to restore peace by vanquishing all adversaries, thereby forging closer bonds with the local populace. These critical locations can be easily pinpointed from afar by recognizing columns of smoke billowing from the afflicted area. Notably, the Yoshida-Shinden region boasts two distinct Public Order / Unruly Areas.

2.1 Camp in the Northeast

In the northeastern region of the map, neighboring Yoshida-Shinden and Nakamura, lies a camp designated as a Public Order / Unruly Area that needs to be liberated from Bandits. The telltale sign of its location is the distinctive pillar of smoke rising from it. Within this camp dwell a quartet of bandits – a strong and formidable adversary among them.

2.2 Central Village

Explore the expanded Public Order / Unruly Area event in Maita’s central village, featuring a significant challenge with eleven bandits and four formidable enemies. Among these adversaries is The Fugitive Mutsurokuro the Beast Master, indicating many of the village’s foes are beasts. Overcome these challenges to clear the area and earn the Veiled Edge Banner, which allows for fast travel and signifies the restoration of public order in Maita.

“Fugitive” Collectibles are quests where you track down and defeat a fugitive.

Maita’s only fugitive is hiding in the center village of the map, together with 10 other bandits they took over the village which has to be liberated in the Public Order / Unruly Area event. Mutsurokuro the Beast Master – the Fugitive – can be found in the biggest, main building in the village, guarding a Treasure Chest.

To begin your journey to the unique Maita shrine, head to Wakamiya Hachimangu Shrine near the Veiled Edge Banner in the eastern part of the in-game map.

The cat collectible is an actual cat, not a statue to search for. While traveling the region, listen carefully for meowing – a sign you’re nearby. Approach the cat and give it a pet.

While you’re visiting the Wakamiya Hachimangu Shrine in the east of the Maita in-game map of Rise of the Ronin, check out the broken bridge. There is a cat lost at the end of it, close to the Veiled Edge Banner.

On a hill near Wakamiya Hachimangu Shrine, there’s a Treasure Chest. Start at the Veiled Edge Banner nearby. Use the grappling point on the shrine’s roof to climb up.

From the collectible, spot a platform with a white flag, then look across the canyon to see another wooden platform – that’s where the chest is. Before you glide over, make sure to spot the kite in the air; it marks a grapple point for a safe crossing. Below is a video guide for the whole path.
