Ha! It is indeed. I wonder if you’re deliberately posting just to beat the boss! ;)

 

I wasn’t a massive fan of Umi Bozu.

There are different ways the fight can fight can play out, I’m not sure what you ended up with?

 

Basically you can get to the boss without putting out any lamps that are dotted around the level. This means there are fires lit in the boss arena, which allows you to douse your weapon in flame however it also means enemies will spawn.

 

If you put out all the lamps around the level there’s no fires at the boss, but no enemies spawn either.

I got lit, fam. Sometimes he’d fucking one shot me as I entered the arena, the cunter.

Heir to the Nioh, a one sword level sub mission which ends(?) with a cunt raven who has a variety of one shots for me. Sweet fuck!

 

Do the % damage increase skills stack on top of each other? Eg the 3 / 3 / 8 all worth getting or just go for the biggest ones nice they’ve unlocked?

 

EDIT: another one.

Really hated fighting Karasu Tengus. 
You really need to sit down and figure those guys out, as they’re super tough to the untrained player. I had one near a shrine so just reloaded and reloaded until I had them down. First tip...You should NEVER be greedy.

 

Not sure what you mean by the skills stack stuff, what exactly are you looking at?

Damage done from behind increases by x%. Getting the 3 and 6 stacks or can I just get the 6? I assume it’s the former, has to be right?

You’re talking about a stat on a weapon/armour, right? So on one piece you’ve get a 3% boost and on another you’ve got 6% so you should be getting a 9% damage increase?

 

TBH I’m not 100% but I would say it should stack. I’ve never done the maths to actually check.

That took me a little while to get used to

 

Finished off my last few trophies, so now have 100% completion for all the game and DLC's 

 

Made it easier as I have been playing with some of the weapons that I hadn't really used before for the final few trophies I needed

 

Back to Nioh 2 now, although I am up for jolly coop with any of my 10 builds

This fucking ice queen fuck shit fuck. A sniper and able to almost insta grab you? No. This is ass. How do you avoid the ice missiles that go five fucking times!? I see you should block it but I don’t appear to have enough Ki to wear that.

Yuki Onna was a sticky point for a lot of people, so the fact that you managed to do it is excellent. Good work!

 

I used to block the ice shots. The last shot would blow my Ki but I didn’t mind as long as I wasn’t taking damage.

 

As for the grab, she starts doing that at about half health so at that point I used to move to long range and let her do right in front of me. I would then smash her while she was recovering.

Ahhh sorry, I misread your 2nd post as ‘I’ve ranted on RLL, now I’ve done it” :)

 

Yea, she’s tough for sure. I can’t remember everything about the fight but I do remember moving right back when she starts doing the grab. The grab doesn’t go full arena distance so get a feel for where you can stand so she will stop right in front of you. 
 

It becomes part of her move set so she’ll just do it regardless of where you’re standing. So get out of range and wait for the chance to counter.

On my second playthrough after not not really touching it since it originally came out - and realised I never actually completed it. That's because I'm not stuck at the exact same point in the epilogue

 

Spoiler

On Queen's Eyes when the three guys come out of the yellow vats. While I'm dealing with one I get instakilled by another. Even with living weapon I just can't do it, and you can't summon on this level.

 

Think I'm going to have to grind to over level as I really want to try the DLC.

This was the hardest part of the game for me.

I watched a speedrun of the game not too long back and one of the things I wanted to see was how he handled this bit.




He basically gets into position early and hand cannon’s them in the head.

Is anyone else playing the remastered version of this? Having played and loved all the Souls series and Sekiro I cant believe i never gave this a try earlier. Picked up the double pack when looking for something to play on PS5 and its amazing, I've only beat up to the Giant Centipede so far and I love it. Its definitely missing the exploration aspect of the Souls series but I also quite like the way its done with the levels, side missions and twilight missions (just trying my first of these just now). 

 

I'm probably massively over leveled but that's how i generally play the souls games, by farming levels where possible, as I ain't all that good at them. I've gone for a sword build, most of my stats so far have gone into Body and Heart, a few into Stamina and Skill. Should i be leveling any of the other stats that i have barely touched (Skill, Dex, Magic and Spirit)?

 

Is crafting much use? I've tried making a couple items but they seem to come out the lowest rarity even when using some purple mats to make them, I figured that using those would increase the rarity of the item but doesnt seem that way, maybe I'm wrong though.

You can respec if necessary. Its not too expensive the first couple of times.

 

After dabbling with a few weapons on my OG Nioh playthrough i stuck with Katana for about 300 hours more (i was obsessed with jolly coop).

 

Then when Nioh 2 dropped i swore i'd try out the new additions, all of which are great...but i ended up back on Katana.

 

The stone cold fact is: Dual Swords are better in every single regard, and they play in a similar way, especially the special moves...but i missed the simplicity of the one.

 

I really need to get back to my Nioh 2 save now i have the upgraded PS5 version. I adore it so much.

Started this earlier today (just to see if it'll give me the same buzz as Bloodborne just has) and reached the big fella on the boat.

 

First impressions are pretty damn good.

 

I've placed markers at the foggy areas where 3 or 4 large Yokai spawn in the burning village as I'd assumed they were required to complete the mission but apparently not? Is it recommended to do them in anyway?

They’re not required to complete the level they’re more gatekeepers to the progress through it.

 

They’re usually before some kind of shortcut/required item and can’t be bypassed (most of the time) without initiating them. 
 

You can just run of course but you really want to get the shortcut/item and it’s dangerous to try with a strong Yokai right there.

 

They’re also the only enemies (apart from bosses) that don’t respawn on death. So if you manage to kill them and then die you’re not forced to fight them again as part of the progression of the level.

 

Also, if you’re a trophy hunter there’s one for beating all fog Yokai’s the game.

Ah that's good to know, thanks. 

 

I had went back to kill them anyway and made sure I had living weapon ready before I engaged each one so it wasn't so bad. I also got one stunned by hitting its head with a stone as someone in here suggested so that was funny.

 

I've had a look at the boss but noped out for now, I'm only missing one kodama so will use a guide to find it before trying the boss again.

 

I'm using dual swords with an axe as a back up and have invested in some skills for both in various stances. Getting some parries and generally feeling more comfortable with the combat. 

 

Disappointing that backstab isn't a thing from the off but I googled it and apparently I unlock a Ninja skill tree after this boss so will make sure to get it right away. 

 

Impressive experience so far 🙂

It’s a great game, and number 2 is even better!

 

Important skills to buy are Ki pulse on dodge and Ki pulse on stance switch. 
 

Retaining Ki is super important as you can block anything without taking damage but it will take a big chunk on Ki. Getting these skills helps you to keep your Ki bolstered as you fight so you’re not caught out with zero Ki when you need it.
