Just watched this video to see how on Earth somebody is supposed to do this fight, he just kept cutting off the snake arms and it seems the boss can't activate the gay realm of atmosphere-molasses. Not tried it yet like, but I haven''t seen it be mentioned on the board.

It does work.

It feels like the snake boss, moreso than the weasel, is designed to teach you to be deliberate and methodical(damage is still a little ridiculous though). If you just freak out on the pad you'll end up poisoned and out of ki all the time.

I think that Hino Enma did it better in terms of giving you plenty of room to work. There weren't pools of paralysis everywhere. That it can spit pools of poison ON TOP of it taking up like half the room is silly.

The poison is not the problem. It's the grab. Still can't see how to avoid it.

Yeah. I'm just so mindblown at how obviously unintuitive the design for the combat is in this game.

This is the layering of counter strategies here...

Boss: DPS race or hard mode
Player: I failed DPS so I'll take you on in hard mode then
Boss: I have an impossible to deal with wriggle attack in hard mode
Player: I'll just DPS your arms during your openings then
Boss: My attacks are rng, I may not even give you openings
Player: Well I'll run in and take pot shots
Boss: I have instant attacks and my arms just flap about all over the f***ing place
Player: Well I'll roll through the attacks
Boss: Your rolls don't work and some of my attacks are really hard to read
Player: Well I'll block then
Boss: You'll just never have stamina to do anything and I have a fast unblockable grab attack
Player: Well I'll get lucky
Boss: I have a high HP pool so you're basically always gonna get unlucky
Player:...
Boss: *instant grabs you and throws you in poison pool then activates gay molasses realm*

I just... this isn't a skill thing, I just can't figure out on paper the formula to these fights. Why the f*** did the devs do this?

Yeah snake boss was easy. I beat him at such a low level and rather quickly. The time I beat him he never got to activate his dark realm. Time before that I got him down to literally one more attack of hp and get didn't get to activate it. The weasal soul core came in handy for that fight.

I think what makes the boss fights bad in this one is that they are clearly designed for you to hit them a few times and distance yourself. In nioh one you could combo the hell out of them and Dodge when appropriate but never had to run away most of the time. With the snake and weasel you have to pretty much get a few hits in and run half way across the arena.

I'm surprised people get a few hits in on the weasel, its tail spin is near instant, if it doesn't just jump away, climb a tree, waste time spamming three air swipe attacks followed by the Beyblade attack before immediately starting its counter-counter before jumping off and starting some new combo.

The snake is schizophrenic, does it want us to be careful, or run in mashing? Both, simultaneously, not neither, both.

Video is neat and all, but his snake stands around and lets him chop arms. Mine did 5 grabs in a row.

But I will admit that I don’t really know how the core stuff works, so maybe i’m just playing wrong.

Repeatedly stagger with Yokai skill. It's seem people haven't get used to Yokai soul skill, it's the new combat mechanic that allow you to turn most boss into pincushion.
