    I donít think itís too bad tbh but there are definitely some tricky bastards in there. A lot of the duo boss fights are just beyond me.

    @Bichii

    Which bossses have caused you problems? There are a number of weapons/tricks I used to really make a number of fights a lot easier. I actually used a really inefficient build as well so relied more on my skills to win those fights.

    I can't remember where I binned it..was two years ago. I've got it installed now and it's probably best if I restart from the beginning?

    Anyone gone back to this after playing Sekiro. Not sure if bichii has played it yet. Just wondered if people adapted with the combat.

    Depends how far in you were. If you were really far In I would restart. If you were stuck at the snow queen or at the spider boss I would continue because the difficulty remains the same.

    Against human opponents the spear has a skill called spear fall that flattens tje opponent and allows for a stab on the ground. Combined with the red demon gear(get the gear from renmants) and you are set for most of the game. Soul matching is affordable untill the later levels in which I would recommend farming new revenants.

    Some people love the kurisagama but I never got along with it. The dual katana is really usefull for some bosses and using elemental weapons against those with weaknesses always works. Always look for those little buggers and keep the elixer one on to stockpile them for bosses. Sloth talisman is also highly effective(I never used it before the nerf because it was too OP). Restoration amulets give you more healing in a level. In general I would recommend some magic over ninja ninjutsu.

    Warrior of the west sword? Basicly the longsword is a katana.

    If you dont want to start over you can also try some of the twilight missions a bit below your level as practice. The game at that point should be reasonble in terms of difficulty. You can also start a new character and once you feel like ypu are at a goos level continue with the old one. I think with that one you are halfway there. My end level was 125 I think.

    The fucking first boss is harder than anything in sekiro. Fucking retarded. I remember it was like this first time around.

    Hmmm, nah. He is not that difficult. You can block his swinging balls. His diving attack is pretty lethal but that can be avoided and punished. Also, get that living weapon out for the ninja lads.

    I finished him first time on my second play through. Get your distance right and he should barely be able to touch you.

    I hate how this games systems favour defensive play. Being aggressive is way more fun and coming from BB and sekiro you get killed easy if you try and be aggressive. I'll keep playing as it's a good game, just a bit pants Vs the other two.

    Plus you can look cool in this. Currently rocking some full samurai kit but topless. A) I have a hot body B) it keeps me green on weight.

    I think the most consistent feeling I have playing this is anger.

    Going from sekiro to god of war ps4 still requires adjusting after 10 hours.

    Started this today. I'd estimate I spent around a good hour / hour and a half just trying to do the first boss.

    This isn't going to go smoothly is it?

    Got the big-balled fucker eventually though. I think the camera killed me more than anything else.

    The sign of a good game, tho, is that you fight him in a few sub missions after that and by that point you (should) absolutely rinse him.

    It was genius to let you change the appearance of the gear. I spent a good chunk of the game dressed as a beefeater.

    I'll be back though. I need a new hat and some puffy trousers.

    Not settled on anything just yet really. My build is all over the shop tbh. Mainly been switching between a sweet axe I got and a kurisa...wa...sword.

    I'm still slowly going through this. On region three, playing the odd hour here and there.

    Top tip: the axe sucks

    Pick one weapon and carry two versions of it around for different buffs

    Yep. I used to keep a sword of a set for the passive bonuses while using a different but superior weapon.
