    well, I had the typical dark souls moment yesterday…

    I improved in combat and me and my build feel somehow connected. But there was a narrow part anda big yokai, but I had him under control, but I dodged off the cliff. Thank god I activated a ladder short cut, so I could reach my grave pretty quick. But the big yokai enemy was in the way, so I figured I kill him first, I felt confident, and dodged off the same cliff 7 seconds later losing everything.

    That anger you feel in that moment is scary and priceless. Will take a new approach today, had to turn it off after that yesterday.

    I have had so many laugh out loud deaths so far. Water hazards, cliffs and traps have all been engaged with.

    Although my favourite death was a sub mission where there is a increasing set of spawning enemies and towards the end one of the Skellingtons barrelled in from off screen and wiped me out. It was the abruptness and mad moveset that made me chuckle.

    I'm now able to start properly linking my glaive stances together in mid string. This thing is a fucking weapon.

    This game's traps are so well done and have been nothing but entertaining. My particular favourite is running back to get my stuff and then running into the same trap again and dying once again.

    Keep your eyes on the horizon, there is many a trap that with sufficient observation can be avoided.

    The traps are some of my favourite design decisions so far.

    Your definition of entertaining differs to mine.

    I was exaggerating by saying nothing but, I am sure some have been a bit annoying but for the most part I just laugh at the sneaky design or my own lack of attention, none of the traps, so far, are impossible to spot with sufficient attention paid.

    The respec worked, problematic boss is down and even the side missions are going down without too much grief.

    Non DLC players are in for a surprise 😏

    Onto Story Mission 17. Can't be much left surely.

    Level design continues to impress. The last one I was on was fucking ridiculous in how cool it was.

    I am however using gear 70 levels below me right now because I can't get the set to drop in a higher level, nor do I have 15m to spend on soul matching.

    perhaps farm revenants, they might drop your gear at higher lvl.
    perhaps noob advice, sorry if that didn't help or you are already doing that

    Probably snake freeze. The status effects are super powerful, so anything that does paralyze gives you a free grapple. The ninja tools that give paralyze are well worth a few points.

    It gets so good. Ive just finished everything I can on the second region and some of the levels are amazing.

    I have, however, had quite enough of killing those bald midget yokai. The little fuckers are everywhere..

    Anything is hard in groups. To up the difficulty the game constantly just chucks one of the little fuckers in with another yokai which makes it three times harder to kill.

    'Ah, youve killed 20 snake women, eh? Lets see how you handle a snake woman AND one of those tiny little pissweak bastards'

    YOU HAVE DEPARTED THIS MORTAL COIL

    @Decks afraid i can't offer much help other than resign yourself for a long fight and pick away at him. When he goes into the dark realm i ignored the big guy and picked the wee ones off. Other than that i ignored his arms and ran at him every time he did the arm plunging, got some hits in and backed off. I burst countered his lunges and just kept at him.
