      I cannot believe I trained for days until I mastered every boss, defeated every gauntlet of strenght charmles + bell, spent more than an hour fighting 15 or so bosses just to earn: ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

      Thanks From Software. I guess the real treasure was the PURE HATRED I made along the way...

        This boss rush is something else. Except if you are Ongbal, who kills each boss in less than 2 minutes, the main difficulty is to be focused during 17 bosses, and so such a long time. Charmless and with demon bell, I can do almost in a row the 15 first regular bosses. But the inner versions hit hard... I still need some training!

          I've been desperately trying to do this deathless. I easily would have done this first or second try if I had resurrection enabled, like most of you I'm sure. But doing every single boss without making a few mistakes in a row is quite difficult.

          I've gotten up to inner isshin phase 2 and only just made a single slip up, all that progress gone. Best of luck to anyone else attempting it deathless!

            What if there was an actual reward for completing the gauntlet,

            I’d say make it another mortal blade combat art that looks more acrobatic like Sakura dance or Floating passage.

              Honestly, it's just for bragging rights. If you can beat this, why would you need a reward? The only reward to give is the knowledge that you are skilled enough to make this game look like child's play!

                  Would’ve been cool if by beating this you got infinite spirit emblems. Like you could permanently never run out of spirit emblems on your character. Because let’s face it. If you can beat this. You deserve to be overpowered.

                    I would suggest that they DO add a reward at the end of this gauntlet. Keeping in line with the logic of the other gauntlets; why not simply add an outfit?

                    I understand that this test of skill is more for a sense of pride and accomplishment, but there is no harm in getting something purely cosmetic, surely?

                      The first man to climb Everest was once asked why he did it. His response? “Because it was there.” Forge on, fellow Shinobi.

                            So I have ideas I’m not a robot but what you need to do is give them a new rare metal and you need ten and you will give them 3 each time they complete this so you should put it in anyways I’m giving you ideas software so maybe you will put them in.
