Reflections of Strength for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a new feature that will be added to the Sekiro Free Update on October 29, 2020. Reflections of Strength is a game mode that allows players to challenge any boss for a re-match that has been previously defeated. The Wolf can reflect on these memories and re-run the battle of the selected boss, this allows the player to better understand the boss, to learn its movements, to come up with various ways to achieve victory, and to prepare for the Gauntlets of Strength. This page covers information regarding this game mode.
How to access Reflections
Reflections of Strength are added to the Free Update, Patch 1.05. This feature allows the player to select and relive battles from a compendium of extraordinary foes (Bosses). To access this, interact with a Sculptor's Idol, and select "Reflections of Strength".
This feature does not grant players any rewards, but instead, it is mainly used for training and preparation for the Gauntlets of Strength. You can, however, view or leave Remnants for other players to watch. There are also notable changes to bosses made in Reflections; for example, the Divine Dragon's first phase has been removed from its Reflection, and the battles with Emma, the Gentle Blade and Isshin Ashina (Boss) have been seperated into their own Reflections.
