I will try not to rage or rant even though this is the first time in two decades I've wanted to throw my controller against the wall and smash my ps4.
Every boss in this game so far is difficult, but fair. I was really struggling with the boss on the ship, and the vampire lady but time, patience and planning helped me figure them out and eventually win. The game is difficult and deaths come often, but I can't think of one time that I can honestly say that it wasn't my fault…until now.
I hate Muneshige. I hate this battle so much. I've been at it for a week and all I'm doing is running headfirst into a brick wall. So my main disciplines are dual sword and kusurigama. So far so good. I've been taking my time in the game, so I'm level 45. This is a recommended 27 mission.
He destroys my ki when I block. 2/3 of his attacks are unblockable. Advice that I saw here said roll into his attacks. Okay, well it seems like a lot of them have homing properties. He can blow through his ki and suffer no ill effects. I try and take my time and play defensive with no luck. I have blown through all my sacred water and I have nothing to show for it. I use onmyo to lower his defense and offense, but for the life of me it doesn't make a difference. Water on my weapon does nothing, neither does poison.
Then I tried the cheese method. Leveled up a spear and ground until I had entangle. DOES. NOT. WORK. He rolls out of it. So many websites and YouTube videos said this would work and it doesn't. Apparently it was "patched out".
I'm back to square one. I am so beyond frustrated and stressed that I almost just ripped my ps4 out of the wall and stopped gaming after over 30 years. Sounds like hyperbole, but I don't think I've ever been this frustrated with a game since the NES / Master System days. Does anyone have any advice on how to beat this duel? I don't care if I have to exploit bad ai at this point. It has to be done.
The worst part? I liked Ginchyo and Muneshige historically and in Samurai Warriors / Nobunaga's Ambition. I'm absolutely going to make a scenario in the latter where I systematically destroy his clan and everything about him.
