Guide To The Threads of Fate

This guide is a work in progress and is continuously updated with the help of the community. Pictures coming soon!

After completing the Mushroom Shrine theme dungeon, you can then raise the closeness of a number of NPCs that will allow you to use a skill once you reach a high closeness. To open the Threads of Fate window, you need to click the book icon on the left side of your screen, then click the mushroom shrine icon, followed up by clicking [Threads of Fate] Unraveling the Threads of Fate.

Talk to the NPCs in this window to gain closeness, and depending on how interesting the conversation is you will earn anywhere from +0-+3 closeness. Talking is limited, so you can't simply talk to them over and over to gain closeness. You must wait 1 full hour to speak to the same NPC. Also in the threads of fate window you can give gifts once daily to receive 3 closeness. You can equip up to 3 of these NPCs to gain stats on your Wings of Fate. Double click the NPCs while in the Threads of Fate window to equip them and their icon will appear in the area below. There are a couple of gifts that I don't know because I haven't unlocked them and JMS translations didn't provide useful info.




Mushroom Shrine Gifts:

+3 Closeness daily

  • Kino Konoko - Dolls from the mushrooms nearby Mushroom Shrine, they're called Sakura Mushrooms though they look like regular orange mushrooms.
  • Takeno Konoko - White, Red, Orange potion, or Elixir
  • Tengu - Opal Ore, Garnet Ore, Emerald Ore, or Aquamarine Ore
  • Kamaitachi - Blue Dragon Hat, Pirate Hat, Thief Overall, Bowman Shoes, or Mage Gloves; all must be level 110-120 not any higher or lower.
  • Kurama - Regular arrows from NPC shops, Bronze Arrows
  • Ibaraki - A level 4 alchemy potion that enhances str, dex, int, luk or def; ex. Defense Potion IV, Strength Potion IV, etc. Any of these will work.
  • Nue - (Need 50 closeness with Ibaraki to finish the quest to unlock him.) Ramen from the NPC shop in Mushroom Shrine, Melting Cheese OR Reindeer Milk
  • Yorozu - Twisted Time, Alchemist Stones, Intermediate Item Crystals
  • Kubinashi - Lv120 Weapon (Warrior, Pirate, Demon weapon; accepts Briser Grim Seeker, may also accept the Briser Swords)
  • Izuna - Alchemy Flowers, Mandarin flowers confirmed to work


+3 Closenesss In Every Conversation:

It's important to note that once you reach 50 closeness, talking will no longer give closeness. I will be listing the conversation options in order. The first conversation choice for each NPC will have 2 choices. If you don't get the first choice listed below, press Esc and start the conversation again until you get that option. Can repeat the same conversation hourly.

  • Kino Konoko - Mushroom shrine > Why doesn't Takeno come outside > I heard there were rumors OR Takeno Konoko > You really care about Takeno > Bread was safe
  • Takeno Konoko - Hobbies > By yourself > Comb your sister's hair
  • Tengu - Things you like > What does Yorozu like > So I've noticed
  • Kamaitachi - What sort of things do you like > Zipangu's beauty > Do you get many dates
  • Kurama - What you hate > Afraid of > Not everyone's going to like you
  • Ibaraka - Kamaitachi > Secrets > Were any other Yokai involved OR Human world > Likes about human world > More human than many humans
  • Nue - Likes > Takeno > Love at 1st sight OR Let's talk about Kubinashi > Let's talk about Kubinashi's past > Not even about her past as a commander
  • Yorozu - Tengu > Relationship > Fond of him
  • Kubinashi - Hobbies > What she does when she was alive > Good at sword
  • Izuna - Dreams > What's her dream > Yokai living in mushroom shrine
Adding these as they are found.


After You Reach 50 Closeness

After reaching 50 Closeness, your options are limited. You either give daily gifts for 3 closeness or you can do Tengu boss runs (or you can do both). Closeness decays by 3 each day even after you reach 100 closeness. Each Tengu boss run gives 3 closeness to an NPC of your choosing, and you can do it up to 5 times a day. That's 15 closeness per day. Tengu runs take time, though, so it's best to do them with a party. One run for me, without any missed action prompts, takes about 10 minutes. That means it would take 50 minutes or more to max out your daily Tengu runs. I would try to find one or two people to go with you on Tengu runs so that they are finished quickly.



NPC Skills Received At 70 Closeness
  • Kino Konoko - Summons Kino for access to a special shop. This shop has potions and scrolls for the Wings of Fate. The scrolls are: 100% success rate for 5 all stats, 50% success rate for 7 all stats at a 50% boom rate, 30% success rate for 10 all stats at a 100% boom rate. You can only buy 1 of each scroll. 24 hour cooldown. Shop does not reset after cooldown.
  • Takeno Konoko - Uses bamboo to recover 100% of your HP and makes you invincible for 5 seconds. 30 minute cooldown.
  • Ibaraka - Attacks, dealing 5,000,000 damage over 5 seconds. 30 minute cooldown.
  • Kamaitachi - Summons Kamaitachi to let you send a message to everyone in your channel. 24 hr cooldown.
  • Tengu - Buffs you and everyone in your map for 20att/m.att for 1hr with a 24hr cooldown
  • Kurama - Strikes to instantly defeat 20 enemies in the map. 30 minute cooldown.
  • Nue - Shows range of those nearby. Just like in the stat window, this caps at 2m and you can't see any numbers above that. 24 hour cooldown.
  • Yorozu - Places 5 traps, monsters that touch the traps are stunned for 5 seconds. 30 minute cooldown.
  • Kubinashi - Summon Kubinashi to teleport to another location. 24 hour cooldown.
  • Izuna - Ignore DR for 5 seconds. 30 minute cooldown.


Wings of Fate Stat Combinations

List of all combinations Not sure why this link isn't working, but you can find the list on southperry.

The best combinations:

All of these effects occur at 100 closeness with all 3 characters. Anything lower than 100 closeness will yield a lower stat. Get your desired stat combination below and maintain 100 closeness with the 3 chosen NPCs by giving daily gifts and you're golden. Disclaimer: none of these numbers are confirmed. I got these numbers from the JMS version of this event, and GMS may have changed these numbers.

Kino Kinoko + Kubinashi + Yorozu - 4% all stats (the other %stat combinations only go up to 3%)
Kino Kinoko + Izuna + Yorozu - +20 Atk, +20 M.Atk
Takeno Kinoko + Nue + Izuna - +10% Max Crit Dmg
Takeno Kinoko + Nue + Yorozu - +10% Min Crit Dmg
Kamaitachi + Nue + Izuna - +5% Atk
Nue + Kubinashi + Kurama - +8% Crit Rate
Nue + Kubinashi + Yorozu - +8% Ignore Monster Def
Nue + Izuna + Yorozu - +5% Boss Monster Dmg
Kubinashi + Kurama + Izuna - +5% M.Atk

This guide will continually be updated as other information is discovered! Special thanks to the people of basilmarket for helping me compile this info thus far.

    I suppose this is "pick only one" and not "STACK EVERYTHING"?

    would be pretty legit if you could stack everything.

    You just have to treat her with respect and dignity! :) Hehehe

    Give daily gifts and "Talk" to Kino hourly until you reach 50 closeness. You can also run Tengu to get closeness during this time, but it takes up so much time to farm closeness using Tengu that I save it for when I absolutely have to do it. Now that you're at 50 closeness, talking doesn't give closeness anymore. Continue giving daily gifts for 3 closeness per day and max out your Tengu runs to get 15 closeness per day. After reaching 50 closeness, it should take you 4 days* to reach 100 closeness by earning 18 closeness per day (*Math; 18 closeness x 3 days= 54 closeness, but closeness decays by 3 each day so this is not enough). Just give daily gifts once you reach 100 to deal with closeness decay.

    Congrats on your new Waifu!

    Right. Unfortunately you can only equip 3 NPCs at a time, so only one stat effect can be worn at a time.

    Nue seems to also give +3 closeness when talking to him about Kubinashi and bringing up when Kubinashi was a commander (not entirely sure on the first option in the conversation but I'll check in a moment), and Tengu also accepts emerald ore as a gift iirc.

    Update: Let's talk about Kubinashi > Let's talk about Kubinashi's past > Not even about her past as a commander?
    ^This gives +3 closeness to Nue.

    Wait, are the scrolls also available in Reboot? Because I thought there was no scrolls in Reboot.

    They add to your Wings of Fate! You only receive the effects when you have the NPCs equipped in the window and are wearing the cape!

    Nue unlocks from a quest after you have 50 closeness with Ibaraki. I'm unsure about the others, but I assume they require the same closeness amount with a different NPC.

    Thanks for the write-up.

    I've never had the benefit of a party run -- What sort of advantage do you have with party members? Can you "overlap" attack sequences? Or is it only quicker because you reduce the chances of missed attacks?

    I believe you can overlap the attack sequences.

    Kubinashi is unlocked with 50 closeness with Kamaitachi.

    Nue is unlocked with 50 closeness with Ibaraki.

    Izuna is unlocked with 50 closeness with Kurama.

    Yorozu is unlocked with 50 closeness with Tengu.

    Though I say unlocked, you have to do some other quests for them before you could start to gain closeness with them like all the default unlocked ones.

    Yorozu's is most memorable for me because she demands that you kill 200 monsters then 300 then 500 by which point I said screw it, your friendship ain't that valuable and you can be friendless forever for all I care you're not even that interesting *ragequit*

    I've finally convinced a few poor souls to come fight Tengu with me. I can confirm that you cannot overlap attack sequences, even if everyone successfully hits space in the aura. Only one person can attack at a time; everyone else stands by until the attacks are finished.

    Partying won't make your Tengu runs quicker, but it's more fun than going alone.
