    My glaive elemental buff build is starting to come together. Still finding it tough to get decent light armour to drop though.

    It was raining shrine maiden and sohaya garb on me at the point i think youre at.

    I ran both for a bit and they were excellent.

    And you might find the sohaya text has dropped, so you can just forge it.

    Finally finished mopping up area 3. Some good duels in the sub missions and was nice to reaquaint with a large angry old friend. Onward to 4.

    Quite liking mixing things up with the spear once in a while but the glaive is still my go to.

    Oh and spiders can get fucked. Dropping from the ceiling so i shit myself.

    Yreah, I've been looking for the short sub missions to do when I have a spare ten mins:

    I know "A Formal Duel" is one of them...anyone recall the others?

    If you need the text, best method of farming it is to do the 2nd story mission. From the second shrine, just up ahead there's a Sohaya warrior. Kill, shrine, repeat until you get it. That's what worked for me.

    I had the shinto set drop really early and I have been using it ever since. Healing on purification and reduced yokai damage has been great. I think it was an early boss drop but I can't quite remember.

    First mission of area four. Is that boss the same guy you fight in the burning building in nioh 1? Very cool fight.

    Of course... Then there's a fucking spidercow . Ouch.

    COWPIDER.

    That boss is fun.

    And yes, it is.
  • Deleted user 2 April 2020 18:57:19
    @wuntyate yep. Same guy. Kunai to the face still works some of the time.

    I actually really enjoyed fighting him, and have horrible memories of him in the first game. Got him third try and didn't actually need to heal as had him down by then. Felt good.

    Also when aiming with the bow.

    Eh. Apparently.

    @wuntyate lovely. I absolutely wrecked him with my switchglaive character. He barely did anything.

    Tell you what though. Fuck this cowpider. Shite.

    I fought/beat him last night. I ended up using a lot of sacred water and running around a lot. On one of my failed attempts I got an achievement so I think there is a trick to it that I just didnít get.

    Was it smashing the back legs in?

    If youre struggling, summon a blue guy to draw aggro, go around the side of it and chop at his legs.

    If youve played a lot of souls, its slightly counter-intuitive, but this is about the stage where you need to start blocking things instead of dodging them. You can block pretty much all of his moves, iirc, so run around the back and whack his arse and then just block when he jumps.

    Easy for me to say, I found the pattern pretty quickly so I killed him second try, but I really struggled with peacock guy who everyone else seems to have battered.

    I got the master swordsman text on my third go last night, so either I was incredibly lucky or the text drops really have been massively buffed.

    Yeah i grabbed a blue guy and he was a piece of piss after that. I should have maybe focused on blocking then.

    Truly terrible boss but they can't all be great. The rest of the level was utterly superb though.

    @wuntyate I didn't mind it, it was spectacle and reminded me of Bloodborne. Even if it was a bit weak, the shock on seeing it makes it worth it.
