      It's good Skill trust me... Genichiro's Floating Passage combo is like idk 9 Hits ? The main good thing about this Skill is that the Posture damage u take from Swords ( Any Sword Attack against you , No matter what Size is it or shape ) is a Basic Flat Reduction... umm i would say around 15-20% Reduce posture. Might not be much to you but Genichiro's flurry attack is quite a combo... if u dont have this 1 combo without deflecting it right might break ur Block... Sekiro Tip : Sekiro's Kusabimaru Block Posture gauge is Half the Loaded Umbrella gauge infact ( Which flowing water also stacks with umbrella Posture Bar aswell ). So when u block with Katana you have 100% Posture Gauge... while if u block with Umbrella you have 225% gauge. Also you should have Full Vitality 20 to be at Maximum like my test eventually... Umbrella is quite more than double the Posture u have with the Kusabi infact... also Gokan Sugar shouldn't be ignored it's a Very good Sugar for practicing Block Deflections aswell as Maintain Loaded Umbrellas Posture Bar... like facing tough Bosses like Isshin Sword Saint & Demon of Hatred.... Gokan Sugar/Spiritfall Reduces the Posture Damage you take by 33% which is Alot actually... even if u deflect u take posture damage Gokan will make sure you're safe when Blocking for atleast 5 combos... in Genichiro's Flurry Combo without deflecting 1 combo of his will break ur posture while if u got Gokan sugar he needs 2 combos to break u up... it's situational unless u wanna Train Deflect on Bosses in certain times or so. Umbrella is Great against Isshin Saint's spear leap attack & most of his spear combos aswell... should sustain u from damage to go for a Projected Force for good reverse damage situation indeed.
