World States[]

Lord Yoshinaga's death/imprisonment would cease Samurai patrols spawning in Skimsands.

If Lady Tsugi and Lord Yoshinaga are both dead/imprisoned while Valamon is alive and free, Reavers patrols will start spawning in Heng.

Alternatively, if Lady Tsugi, Lord Yoshinaga and Valamon are all either killed/imprisoned while Crab Queen is alive and free, Crab Raiders patrols will start spawning in Heng.

If Lord Yoshinaga is killed/imprisoned alongside with Emperor Tengu, Lord Inaba, Lord Nagata and Lady Sanda it would cause patrols of Samurai Rogues consisting of 4 to 13 to start spawning in the following regions: Northern CoastSinkuunSkimsandsStormgap CoastThe EyeThe Great Desert, and The Outlands.


  • Whether due to bug or intentional, if Heng is half-destroyed or handed over to Empire Peasants, Lord Yoshinaga will despawn. However him despawning that way will NOT cause any of the World States mentioned up there being triggered.
  • Out of all Nobles of UC, (excluding Lord Ohta) Lord Yoshinaga is the only Noble without World States aligned with their hometown.
