Did you get Demon of Hate? I finally beat him last night, at the cost of most of my confetti. I don't know how many attempts that took, but I think I gave everyone dragonrot. I like the way there's a slightly more traditional DS boss alongside the last one, which mostly seems to be a sword fight so far.

So now onto final boss. I can get first phase (Genichiro) out of the way quite quickly now using mortal sword, and also managed get Isshins first out of the way once or twice. Wait til he pulls a frigging gun out though!

So 4 phases essentially. I'm glad the final fight is a decent one that seems to require quite a few different skills to get through.

No, I didn't look for him. I probably should, if this is actually the final fight.

I should also farm Ashina for some more Culminated Mercury to get those last upgrades. I wanna see what Lazulite Subimaru can do.

He's through Ashina outskirts, back past where the first chained Ogre was.

It might still be accessible after final fight, there's usually a choice to go to NG or stay and clear up. I don't know if that will include the sculptor demon though. I got him first to get another memory before Isshin.

I found another prayer bead back in the box where Hanbei was - which annoyingly leaves me with 2. I'm not sure with this ending that you can get the other 2 - it looks like you need a couple of playthroughs to get everything.

At this stage it doesn't really matter, if I've got this far I should be able to take Isshin out with what I have.

Haha.

I looked it up. The way to get the other 2 beads involves

Spoiler
so it looks like we're both SOL on that.

The bead you got was probably from the purple ninja in the Serpent Shrine. That mini-boss is only available until the castle is set on fire (cuz after that the shrine is taken over by monkeys)

Ohhh. I assumed that memory was part of one of the alternate endings, whoops.

It won't make a vast difference.

I just need some time when I'm not exhausted to finish it. I bet I still end up putting it on this evening after work though. If his final 2 phases are like the 1st I might be able to manage it..

I need to be properly awake to do that fight. My Mikiri timing was off a lot and I ended up taking a lot of unnecessary hits.

Given I'm going up to a cottage this weekend, and next weekend I've got a wedding to go to and then a concert, I don't know when I'll have the time to focus on this properly, :o
Still, gives me loads of time to relax and farm.

The second memory IS part of a more complicated ending, but you can do most of it without committing to it.

I'm aiming for the Return ending - have you got the Frozen Tears as well as the Dragon Tears?

I was up late last night after a long day, and it definitely affects concentration. Tonight will probably end up the same so maybe a bit of farming and wait until the right moment.

No, I didn't come back to Kuro for the cooked rice, :(

So my first ending will probably be a very generic one.

Got phase 1 and 2 solid.

Now need to work on phase 3. Run out of emblems again so working without. Mortal draw is good, Floating Passage is working too. Need something else for phase 3.

Edit.. Goddamn it that bow.. drives me mad when I forgot to block and get taken out by that hail of arrows. Deathblow is too good for him, I want to snap that bow and jam it into him.

At least I get to keep killing him over and over to get to Isshin.

No Sekiro for me. Packing/prepping a new Playlist for cottage let night, out to a birthday tonight, then out of town for long weekend.

Earliest I might get to it is... Tuesday? And then next weekend there's a wedding..

Summer's starting and getting busy quick.

Yes, feel like I'm running out of time as I've got other stuff to do, but I don't want to leave it until it's done!

Also I need sleep.

Got to within one hit of reaching phase 4.

I suppose it's fitting for the final boss.
So far, by trying out different methods I'm actually inadvertently learning his moves to the extent that actually getting in close and deflecting might be a viable option.

I've managed to bounce on his head, and even mikiri him a couple of times. One pause or miss and and that's it though.

This is nuts.

Spotted the Demon. Activated the idol, but did not engage.

started farming Mercury in the Ashina outskirts. Thinking I'm prolly gonna go ring the demon bell and then try to collect enough Mercury to max out my proshtetic upgrades before resuming my boss hunts.

I tried again last night.

My problem at the moment is, I can kill Genichiro phase in literally 30 seconds, IF I use emblems. First phase Isshin I can manage no problem.

2nd phase Isshin - I've found a way to progress, but it requires emblems. Which I don't have if I use them for Genichiro.

When I try Genichiro without emblems he spams arrows like goddamn homing missiles - they always seem to get me, dodging or not.

I stayed up too late again. I really want to finish this but the need for emblems to make use of skills is making this a trial.

Don't you have the sacrificial knife to make more emblems?

I do, but it only gives 5. I used up some skill points to get extra emblems, but really I just need to beat Genichiro the longer way, and save everything for those last phases.

I just beat him!

That was... epic. Watching the credits roll, can't quite believe I finally got him. It's taken over a week dammit!

I put it on tonight, farmed some confetti, and went at it. Got him to final phase for the first time - and promptly went over the cliff edge. Jeezus.

Ran out of emblems, ran out of confetti, went at it the old fashioned way - chipping away, healing where I could, and learning which moves to keep away from and which ones to punish.

Didn't get greedy at the end either, even when he had a sliver left - stood back and waited for best moment.

I might just have taken a stupid route to do this and made it even harder than it had to be, but got it in the end, without using my 13 skill points.

Urg I can sleep now.

Congrats!

When you wake up, you can load up NG+ and start doing it all over again for the other 3 endings!

I did nothing yesterday cuz I came home from practice late. The whole week looks to be pretty busy, don't expect I'll get to do more than grind for some Mercury.
