During the study of the Senpou Temple in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice you can get to the temple with a huge bell. On this page, we explain whether to ring the bell, and what are the consequences of this interaction.
The area we talk about is the Bell Demon's Temple, located in the area of the Senpou Temple on a hill, away from the main buildings. The route to this temple can be found on the page with our walkthrough for The Senpou Temple. In short, once you reach the sculptor idol Shugendo, you will need to choose narrow path on the left that's located at the abyss, which involves climbing with grappling hook. Once you reach your destination, you can unlock the sculptor idol to easily return to that place if needed.
You can approach the big bell at any time and hit it (interaction button).
Striking the bell imposes on the protagonist the curse of the Sinister Burden. You will also receive a Demon Bell. The effect of the curse causes more damage to all enemies.
You can use the curse if you're looking for a important and difficult duel or if you want to get more loot from your opponents. The curse can be easily removed at any point in the game. Just place the Demon Bell on the skill bar and use it. After a while the game will show confirmation that the curse has been removed
