I beat the Owl part 2 today. That fight was BS, because of the awful camera. I had to learn to back off form time to time, just so the camera wouldn't get caught on a pillar or a wall. Owl part 2's moveset is completely different than his original. He's very beatable though. None of the bosses I've encountered seemed to be busted. Just hard. And I just barely got my vitality to max. I was fighting in most of new game+ with two prayer bead necklaces missing, and I still managed to beat all the bosses. When I fought the Owl part 2 I was still missing 1 Prayer bead.

Oh, and this game wrecks controllers. My PS4's R1 button is sticking every once in a while now. It might just be sweat getting in between the controller, but PS4 controllers are a bitch to take apart and put back together again. That ribbon cable is borderline impossible to get back in.

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.

Just started NG+ 4. Isshin Ashina can almost one shot me with certain moves now. Gonna make it to the Owl, choose to abandon Kuro and beat the final two bosses for my second to last trophy. After that I'll be grinding away about 28 skill points.

Platinum Achieved! The grind for the final 9 skill points was real. Had to go all the way to NG+4 and then farm the Ashina Outskirts soldiers.

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.



Went from this game to another playthrough of dark souls 2 and has been a walk in the park,everything is easy and relaxing compared to Sekiro;)



So I'm on NG+ now. Demon of Hatred was...not difficult at all. In comparison to Isshin, I'd say he was a little on the easy side? It's just a bit of a long battle. Anyways, I didn't get the Owl 2 fight, so I'll be doing that this time, and then NG++ will be for the Emma/Isshin fight ending.

Did you do Owl 2 yet?
