Final boss but its just a time sink and the fight is Pure shit. I probably Will never end because time is precious and i cant deal with this retarded time Grind of a fight to beat four phases, dark souls three final boss of the DLC was hard as fuck but its was a blast, i had fun. This One is so fucking boring , such medíocre fight that for the first time i Will not end a from software game.
Don't give up. He is very beatable, as someone pointed out to me the best thing to do is to stay close and be agressive. Do NOT back away and when healing in phase three and four do three jumps away from him and if he humps at you wait until the last second to dodge. Once you get to phase 4 you can throw his lightning back at him so imagine this phase as the easy, gimmick phase because because if you can hold gim in phase 3 and have that mastered, you can in phase 4 long enough to get three or four lightning counters and reck his health enough to be able to one shot posture break him. Of you're fatigued put the game down for a day or two but don't give up, dude. You can do it.
As a self-proclaimed Souls veteran, I hate that it's taken me this long to get to Isshin, but fatherhood has really killed my gaming time.
Anyways, I'm not finding this boss as hopeless as many internet ragers have lead me to believe. Yes, it's hard, but after about 10 tries, I did get to his final phase. And I can almost always get to phase 3 without using a gourd, often barely getting hit. My guess is I'll be able to put this guy to rest tonight and then work on the Demon of Hatred. I also missed the opportunity for the Owl 2 fight, so I'll have to take care of that in NG+ and then work on the remaining endings in NG++ and NG+++.
Holy hell, though. Super fun game. Was kind of hoping they'd announce a Sekiro DLC at Microsoft's conference yesterday. But oh well.
