Tips For New Players
The Tutorial Area/First Area
The tutorial area can be very discouraging for new players at least in my experience. It is probably the hardest part of this game because of how many mechanics there are and you not knowing what the hell to expect from some random chinese game you bought off of a sale.
The first boss is quite easy. The main trick is to dodge his charge attack which can be done decently easily if you use the “flying” technique from this guide —> it’s explained later how to do it. (dw it’s easy)
For the best fighting experience try to use the BIG SWORD. A charged heavy attack (hold right mouse button) can stagger the boss by making him fall down onto his belly. I believe in the tutorial area you only need 1 charged heavy attack to CC him which is not a lot and it for sure helps while fighting him. I’d say after Staggering him switch to the small sword and wombo combo his ass.
After this boss the game gets a lot easier because you get access to blood spells which are (no ♥♥♥♥ sherlock) the main mechanic of the game.
Tips & Tricks
You can follow the opponents easily in combat by using the “grappling hook”. It’s on C key and helps a lot with flying enemies.
Some chests are impossible to get before beating the game for the first time. Unless you know the flight trick that allows you to bamboozle the devs and get a lot more of them.
To fly in this game you need to:
- Jump into the air.
- Press shift or the assigned dodge button.
- Light attack (left mouse button –> don’t hold it just press once).
- Press shift.
- Light attack.
- Repeat steps 4 and 5.
With the right timing it allows you to stay in the air pretty much forever.
Also there’s a sword in the 3rd area (bamboo forest with villages) that you can get by using this trick. It’s a really good sword esp for 1st playthrough so highly recommend!
