    @AddyB_ hah fair enough. I was trying to talk myself into buying it but i honestly think my last replay of 2016 just killed it for me. Ended up hating it and this new one seems to amplify all i hated.

    @wuntyate

    Yeah I've gone a bit silly and grabbed nioh 2 along with doom and animal crossing. Don't have time to play one properly never mind 3.

    But anyways. Liking this so far. Still in the first area but so far so good. Just a tad overwhelmed with all the systems in play at the minute though.

    Wasn't even happy when I beat the cunt. What a fucking loathsome boss.

    @AddyB_ yeah it takes a bit to get your head around. So many things to take in.

    @wuntyate better in all regards. I'll gush about my thoughts tomorrow, but my entire play through was sheer joy. It's tough as fuck, and I'm glad for that.

    Here's some stats for my total play though:

    Finished at lvl 110
    Stats in order were 20/15/7/15/10/30/50/5. Ran entirely with the Kusarigama and focused on Ninjutsu. NOT A SINGLE SLOTH, WEAKNESS OR DEVIGORATE TALISMAN USED. FUCK THAT MAGIC SHIT.

    Died 288 times.

    13 Benevolent graves made. Used 209 times.

    Play time 75 hours and 13 minutes.

    Thanks Corona!

    Oh and the boss I died to the most was Enenra. Lol. 25 times. The rest didn't go over 3 (with the exception of the Yatsu which took 13).

    congrats Rivuzu! impressive!

    I died 5 times in the Dojo, trying to unlock the next samurai lvl :)
    but I was a tad below the recommended lvl.

    How do you respec skill trees? not the normal skills with the book of carnation, but lets say I would like to respec the onymo magic skill tree? is that possible?

    @Big-Swiss Go to the Dojo and press Triangle. It'll let you choose which tree to respec.

    @Rivuzu That's encouraging. I managed a bit of a sesh last night so did the first three sides in area 2 and started mission 2 in that area. Fucking loving it still, so that's good to hear that' I'll probably continue to do so.

    And yeah, I'm using loads of magic. Thought I may as well as I never use magic in these games normally. It's fun. I can now shoot lightning bolts.

    Area Two was really odd. I felt quite overpowered for most of it except literally one side mission where the boss is a revenant who one pretty much shots you.

    He has super weak Ki to make up for it but one mistimed dodge and its goodnight. Had more goes on him that any other boss combined, the wanker.

    I'm also on a Lightning and Scythe build.
    These games are awesome when it clicks and you get an idea what suits you and start to have a strong build for that playstyle.

    When I was in the snake level these blobs made me scream, now I just shot one lightning bolt from range and they explode like pop corn.

    But I know now the problem that rivuzu had, I'm using the golden boy set, and no gear for that with higher level drops. but I get lots of gear that has much higher defense, but never the set I need.

    I've barely had a set drop yet I'm still just mixing up my armour with whatever gives me good perks / defense.

    I need the master swordsman set and its dropping at either a crap level or yellow, if at all.

    One mild tip: You can use soul cores to soul match corrupted weapons for not much money. So if you have a high level soul core from a shit enemy, you can use it to bump a weapon right up for fairly cheap.

    YYMV, the 'imbue corruption' stat appears to be absolutely useless.

    I noticed that last night! Took me by surprise as I wasn't expecting that but meant I could boost my glaive by a few levels which was good.

    Think I'm going to have to start pissing about with blacksmithing soon. Was planning to just rely on revenant drops but struggling to get any light armour or glaives.

    @Decks I think the drops must start to get geared towards what you're using as I'm probably getting glaives 60% of the time now. Feels like I'm getting shit loads. Glaives and spears then much less of everything else.

    Imbue Corruption wrecks Yokai Ki. Like mad. No elemental boost, but for Yokai bosses it's a quick way to get them into the Yokai Realm stage which means you'll build anima like mad and can spam out Yokai Attacks.

    Some of these side missions are absolute arse though. How can I demolish the final level, which is recommended level 117, but I'm getting gangbanged by Yokai in a lvl 90 sub mission?

    Oh wait, it's probably because my armour set is still AROUND LEVEL SIXTY. I CANNOT GET THIS SMITHING TEXT TO DROP STILL. The grind game is long.

    @Rivuzu Oooh wait does your anima build quicker in the yokai realm?

    @wuntyate Yeah, with every attack. Normally anima only builds on clearing Yokai pools (outside of any gear or etc) but in the Yokai Realm every single attack you do builds anima.

    My build is entirely based around building anima as quickly as possible and then shitting out damage through Yokai Attacks, and they're definitely not to be slept on. Snake core is best core, carried me the ENTIRE game.

    Its why I piled into Ki reduction penalty bonuses in the shiftling tree.

    You can make a lot of anima, but the trade off is that your Ki is savaged, so you make a lot per hit, but you cant hit very often. Once you start building your resistance to the yokai realm, you can go ham.

    Lure it over to pillars so it knocks water on itself. Invest in the water talisman if you can because its, obviously, super weak to water.

    Its big moves leave it really vulnerable to just keep circling backwards until it does something big and steal a few hits from it, rinse, repeat.

    Don't try to burst counter his tornado.
    Play midrange hit and run.
    Use the buckets.
    Prepare for a long fight.

    Some bosses you have to approach that way. Well... mostly. Until you become a damage monster glass cannon melting everything with kunai and poison.

    Speaking of, just checked out my proficiency points. Kusarigama is at 269k. Ninjutsu is at 1.137m. That is a pretty accurate reflection of how I played lol.

    I'm favouring the spear at the moment. I'm still overwhelmed by what to unlock and level up etc.

    I found burst countering his tornado really effective. The window seems much larger than a lot of them.
