@LieutenantFatman I've done a lot of wandering off the beaten track, usually when I'm stuck on a boss fight. This is why it usually takes me yonks to get anywhere in games.

Just fought a headless. That was weird and a bit spooky.

The chasing slice ability is a bit of a game changer. Loving the shuriken to be honest,
and you can link some cool combos with with this ability. Great way to disrupt a big attack, then move in for a few stabs.

@kyleforrester87 Yeah loving the combat. Feels so fluid. I always forget about the extra moves in the heat of the moment!

Have you made much progress?

@JohnnyShoulder I'm up to Lady Butterfly, I only had one go then carried on with the "main area" - I beat the bull and the next mini boss at the top of the stairs, upgraded my health and posture again and got another seed for my magic flask (5 now) - I reckon this'll give me a good leg up on Lady Butterfly. The combat really gelled with me a bit more yesterday, I was blocking a lot but still relying on dodge and jump too much. It's like 90% blocking really and jumping toward the enemy when they do those nasty swipes, not away. Plus as mentioned the chasing slice lets you disrupt a big attack and close distance easily for a follow up.

@kyleforrester87 yead deflecting attacks is key as this will whittle down the posture bar of enemies.

@kyleforrester87 Well done dude! I'm a bit scared to go back to her tbh lol.

I really like the rooftops in the castle, introduces a cool new enemy.

Think I finally got the boss cracked in the castle, almost had him! It is all about deflecting most of his attacks and choosing your hits wisely.

I liked the dungeons, all though they are almost thoroughfare to other areas. The boss is well weird and you will need to use a special item to beat him.

@kyleforrester87
Nice, second attempt is very impressive, definitely took me more than that. I thought she was fun to fight but l I reckon I would have really struggled had I fought her too early on.

@LieutenantFatman thanks - yeah it was close at the end, I had her posture close to breaking point but I wasn’t looking to hot either, surrounded by phantoms I nearly backed off but thought screw it and kept the pressure on and finally saw the deathblow marker. Could have gone either way to be honest!

And the main boss form the castle has been beaten but not killed. Sort of. Once you get into the flow of it it feels quite graceful. I like the little stand offs you have after a flurry deflected hits, felt like a being in a movie. Only took me a best part of an hour to do it lol.

Yes! Lady Butterfly is down. I switched from deflecting to dodging (which I think I was doing initially) and found it much easier, especially in the 2nd stage.

@kyleforrester Cheers! Snake eyes dude? Soz not sure who that is. To progress the story you need to go up on the castle rooftops and beat the main boss. I think the boss in the dungeons is optional. To get to the next location after the dungeon you need to head right after the NPC surgeon, through the water and down the lift.

@kyleforrester87 Sorry I couldn't help! Hope you find your way out soon.

@kyleforrester87 I know where you are now! I think that area is for a bit later on, I briefly got there but got destroyed so turned back.

After you kill the main boss in the castle it becomes clearer what you are supposed to be doing and where to go next, although the latter is entirely up to how to approach.

I take it you have beaten the ninja guy down the hole then?

@JohnnyShoulder yeah he took a few goes, you can get the drop on him through a hole in the ceiling above him that gets rid of one deathblow marker. It’s not the easiest because of the small room you’re in, I think you might have mentioned this fight earlier.

I just beat the mini boss in the dojo - it’s funny how he destroyed me on my first attempt, couldn’t even get a move in, then I beat him on my third attempt. You learn quick!

Then I got killed on the main boss just after, will try again later

@kyleforrester87 The camera few a wobbly on me a few times fighting the ninja guy, which didn't help lol. Think i used the flame vent to best him in the end.

Just beat a mini-boss in Senpou Temple, Mt. Kongo. There are some unexpectedly weird enemies in this area, which I didn't think would happen from seeing the enemies you come across initially. Because I've been exploring I've got quite far into this area. It feels quite expansive and has some brilliantly designed parts, especially when you go up and around a section of the mountain.

This is incorrect, it is actually left after the NPC.
