Made it to the bottomless pit after beating The Loneswordsman it only took about three tries. I’m definitely getting better as a player. Going down the pits of Ashina during my next session .

Man I am up and down atm. I feel good at times then I get overwhelmed by a few enemies. Like that I can counter thrust attacks but I’m still fucking up on sweeps.

I jumped down this dark pit last night where a boss was. I couldn’t move properly, no dodging or anything due to gas or something.

And here I was doing so well. I'm unsure I wanna progress until I beat this Enshin cunt (even though it's seeming optional) but I just can't learn how to counter or even dodge his moves at all. I have the mikiri counter but not only flubbed the timing on each attempt, I also dodged toward him trying to do it. Killing everyone around him before it is a small bitch too. I can get everyone done through stealth other than the archer right by him. Well I can do the archer too, but I'd rather get the stealth hit on Enshin because he seems to never de-aggro after he catches me near that area (and obviously he does if I stealth kill the archer). Wondering if I should just save the whole Hirata bit for later and truck on in the present time post-Chained Ogre.

I say this even as someone who sucks, but once you get that Mikiri counter down that dude is a walkover. If I can do it then anybody can do it.

Bypassed the Great Serpent, took out one of its eyes and then I went onwards to face Gyobou Masataka Oniwa this morning. I thought he would be a pain but after my third try I killed the motherfucker. Felt good. I had more issues with mini-bosses than him haha.

Maybe I'm half decent again?

Beat Lady Butterfly on my second attempt (of the day) by being super aggressive and using deflect rather than dodging. I basically jumped her as soon as the second phase started and she only got one chance to summon her wee Putties because I accidentally used the firecracker rather than the Shuriken. As has been mentoned by others, getting good at deflecting is definitely the way to go. It makes everything so much better, not just from a difficult standpoint but from an overall gameplay standpoint. Those exchanges where strikes and blocks are flying in everywhere is so satisfying. Such a great combat system when it's in full flow. Awesome boss fight.

Went back to that Seven Spears guy and I guess getting the timing down on Mikiri is vital against these spear-wielders. I beat him on the first attempt and then killed that dude in the purple back at the Hirata Estate. I mostly did that to prepare myself for the one down the well at the Ashina Reservoir but maaaaan that fucker down the well is a different kettle of bastarding fish. I'll go back to that somewhere down the line. Also beat the wee monk fella in the dojo, again because using deflect at the proper points makes it a waaaay easier fight. He hits hard as fuck, but he's super flimsy and also can be poisoned, so it only took me a couple tries this time whereas yesterday I was tearing my hair out after getting slaughtered in ten seconds about a dozen times in a row. Tried Genichiro once so far but I want to explore a couple other places before going back to that.

For Mikiri, don't move. Just hit the button.

Go back to the Poison Pool checkpoint in Ashina Depths and then head towards the next idol.
