How do I complete the Tatara Tales world quest and unlock Shakkei Pavilion?

As mentioned above, you will need to first get to a specific point in the Tatara Tales world quest. As soon as you get access to the Kamujima cannons, you will be able to clear the path to Shakkei Pavilion. Keep in mind that Tatara Tales is a chain quest that will unlock daily based on server time, so you may not be able to complete all of this in one go. Here’s how you unlock the Kamujima cannons and clear the path.

A map of all the canon locations

  • Head to Kujou Encampment and talk to Toranosuke. They will be next to the teleport waypoint
  • Talk to Miyuki and Toranosuke
  • Follow the mark, which will lead you to Xavier. Talk to him
  • There will be three locations marked on the map. Head to them and observe the Mikage furnace
  • Report back to Xavier
  • Examine the Kamuijima cannons (you can now continue this mission, or move on to the next step in unlocking Shakkei Pavilion)
  • Use the cannons to destroy the barriers
  • Return to Xavier and defeat the enemies that appear
  • Go to Mikage Furnace and take a picture of the gigantic device
  • Report back to Xavier

When you gain access to the Kamuijima canons, you can teleport or take a waverider to the south cannon. You need to use electrogranum to activate the cannon, but there are sources for this nearby. Turn the cannon to the left, and aim at the large stone rubble, then fire a round to clear a path. You will know you’ve succeeded if a yellow flash appears – if not, keep adjusting your angle and firing until it does.

After the yellow flash appears, you can summon your waverider and sail to the Pavilion.
