@ellsworth004 You can use the same method for the Ninja dudes but I eventually was able to deflect their attacks. The one down in the hole I struggled with due to being in a narrow corridor.

Is that the guy with all the shooters around him or the one with lightning attacks? Either way the game has opened to you now and are free to explore the other areas of the game.

@ellsworth004 Yeah he is one if he toughest fights in the games. Once it clicked with me I thought it was one of the best as well though. The flow of the fight just felt so good. His third phase is not as difficult as it initially seems, most of the moves are repeated from the first two stages he is just faster and his attacks go on for longer. His lightning attacks can either be countered or dodged (therefore leaving himself opened for a couple of swipes) and his lunge attack can be mikiri countered. And try not to heal during the third stage as he will punish you.

@ellsworth004 Think I found the latent skills more useful than the majority of the combat skills.

@ellsworth004 I think I probably used the axe the most. It can stagger some bosses, but is a bit slow for some of the quicker ones. The fireworks are surprisingly useful at staggering most bosses too.
The shurikens are good for stunning enemies when they are in the air.
The armour tearing spear sounds good, but I only had to use it twice to ripp off armour. One of the upgrade branches you can imbue it with fire which is really good.
The umbrella I used a lot not only for deflecting bullets, but it is really useful against the Headless and Shaman enemies.

For the first time with a From Software game I'm a bit disappointed by the ambience. All looks way too "normal", without the epicness seen in the 3 Souls and in Bloodborne. Discovering a new area, new enemies have always been part of the show, while here that feeling it's clearly missing... Am I the only one feeling this way?

Praise the Sun, and Mario too.

@andreoni79 Kinda know where you are coming from, but I think mainly it has different feel to those games, which is what From were going for I think. And there are certainly epic moments in the game. The last area especially is truly outstanding and one of my favourite in a recent From game. And hiwnyou get their is totally bonkers lol.

I had a day off yesterday and I finally got the house to myself, so after doing all my jobs the day before, I'd carved myself out a full six hours to devote to gaming. I resolved to sit down and properly get back into this Sekiro.

After an hour or so of backtracking to re-familiarise myself with the controls etc, I went and dished out some pain to some of the bosses who had been tormenting me. Seven Spears got beat, Snake Eyes got beat, even Genichiro got beat (I did his final phase on my first try, somehow).

I'd say yesterday was one of the most rewarding and enjoyable gaming sessions I've had in years.

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

I beat Genichiro tonight after I totally forgot about him for days! In the meantime I reached Senpou Temple, Ashina Depths and Mibu Village: once there I finally remembered I was missing a boss... 😂

Praise the Sun, and Mario too.

@Gremio108 Well done! Although officially hate you for beating Genichiro's final phase so quickly!

@JohnnyShoulder I got a bit lucky. I got right in his face. I was never more than a foot away from him. Whenever he jumped in the air I dodged to the right, that seemed to work. I think it helps that I've mastered the Mikiri counter, at long last.

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

@Gremio108 Yeah the mikiri counter is probs the best move you can unlock.
