Kami are Hunter creatures that can be found within the Arc. They may be caught barehanded or in an impling jar. All kami will grant Hunter experience and an item from their drop table when caught. Orokami may also drop tradeable orokami masks.
Sensei Seaworth awards the player with increased loot or experience when player has caught every type of kami. Progress is tracked in the "Kami Spirits of the Arc" pages of the Arc Journal.
When a bakami or orokami spirit spawns, the chance of a certain spirit spawning is listed in the chart below:
Bakami and orokami spirit spawn chances
Bakami, "mischievous spirits of sea monsters", are lower-level kami that live on named islands in the Arc. They require 90 Hunter to catch.
Orokami are higher level kami that may only be found on
Uncharted Isles. They require 95 Hunter to catch and have a rare chance to drop orokami masks. One or two orokami can spawn on an island of any size, though it is unknown whether the spawn chance is consistent across all voyages.
'Kami' (神) means 'god' and 'spirit' in Japanese. They are inspired by kami of the Shinto religion.
'Baka' (馬鹿) means 'idiot' and 'fool' in Japanese. Bakami is likely a play on these two phrases.
'Oroka' (愚か) means 'stupid' and 'foolish' in Japanese. Orokami is likely a play on these two phrases.
