      The Spider Leg Husks required to craft the armour pieces can be farmed in the Spider Nest Castle level
      Other than the level boss, also the 6 larger spiders (like the one who blocks the first locked gate) have a chance to drop these items
      All added up, this level has a total of 7 drop chances per run if cleared up, and 3 drop chances if speed-run (since only 2 out of 6 mini-boss spiders are mandatory to face the final boss)

        Can confirm that the pieces and smithing texts drop from the advanced dojo mission as well. Stacked the kodama bowl helmet, spider spirit, and any luck/human drop rate items I could get my hands on. Got it pretty quick (under 10 tries). :)

          One of the best set in the all game. Just use Magatama Yasakani (1st item) to reduce set-requirements by 1, level-up Heart, Skill and Dexterity to 99, equip all the set pieces (katana and kusarigama included) except for the mask and replace it with Hino-enma Kabuto (it increases close combat damage vs. paralyzed enemies by 58,9% at full familiarity). Use paralysis tools (shurikens, granades and traps) to stack paralyses and equip other amulet (2nd item) that increases close combat damage vs. paralyzed enemies (you can get other +23-24% close combat dmg vs. paralyzed enemies). If you're lucky, you can find star bonus in your sword (Iaw Quickdraw +24,5% dmg) and just use paralysis on enemies. Go behind them, charge your technique (Iai Quickdraw) and strike! Tons of damage! As spirit, use Kato as primary and Aya-Komori as secondary. In this condition, you one-shot almost all bosses of the game at any difficulty!

            I'm the dude below. Yes the weapon plans do drop (from the veteran trainer at least)
            BUT. Here's an interesting fact: I farmed them for ages with 100+ luck and got nothing, several hours. So I decided to remove a couple of luck items to bring it to 80, thus making a smaller percentage of purples drop and more blues and even some yellows. Voila both weapon plans dropped in just a few runs. It could be coincidence, since I only have my own example to go on, but and this is speculation, it might be that at very high luck the percentage of gear purples pushes the plans way down the probability table as a less "quality" item. /shrug

              Is there confirmation that he drops the plans for the weapons (adept or veteran)?
              I've got the armor set smithing plans pretty fast. But after 2+ hours of farming him in either mode I haven't seen any weapon plans drop.
              Reason for the plans would be that of course leveling the weapons eventually gets too expensive with a big enough level difference and it would be wqay simpler to just roll for new ones of appropriate level.

                Be sure to equip gear with luck bonus when doing the Hanzo missions and consider pledging to the furuta clan for the +40 luck bonus. You don't have the guardian spirit available to you in both ninja missions so you can't benefit from the +50 bonus from the spider guardian spirit. I only got the weapon texts after boosting my luck to plus 100 and still had to grind a lot!

                  Thanks, anon. I was wondering if I could farm the set. I completed the adept ninja mission twice, but didn't get any armor pieces the second time around. I DID however, get a hooked kusarigama. The wiki doesn't know where they drop from yet, so there you go.

                    You can farm this set in the second part . In chugoku region. In the dojo, as soon as you have the mission "way of the ninja: adept" unlocked. Unlimited set peices, both weapons and smithing plans.
