Demon of Hatred
He once asked Wolf to kill him when it came to this. Now is the time.
I went back to re-match genichiro and I feel like he does way more damage now than I remmeber him dealing when we fought the first time. His great bow one shots me while I have vitality 14 and power 4 but when I first fought him, the great bow doesn’t deal that much one shot damage.
My question is: do rememberance bosses scale up or do you scale down when you re-match them so that way they stay a challenge? Or is there a new lootable item for beating them twice?
What happens if I DO beat one of the bosses in this mode? It said something about progress when, let's say you defeat Genichiro
Does it cost actual resource like sugars, spiriit emblem or confetti when used in this mode?
I would be curious to know how many players completed those gauntlets charmless and demon bell. That's very difficult. The inner versions of the boss are so much more difficult than the actual NG+7 game.
We need Mist Noble for Reflections of Strength
The bosses appear to be harder then when they were first fought. Gyoubu is literally one shitting me with almost every move. Can anyone confirm?
Is this mode reseted in new game plus?
Does dying in the Reflections of Strength contribute to dragonrot? I can't find the answer to this anywhere.
how to unlock gauntlets? i dont see the option.
I wonder if you still gain xp or if it's just practice?
Now I can fight Genichiro more than 3 times in a single playthough
now I don't have to miss out on fighting sword saint if I want to fight is shin ashina :D
