yeah at least Punish the Proud is unique. The tumble effect probably has a cooldown on bosses, too.
That some nice sweet juicy gigatosis!

I also love how you don't have to worry about smacking the wall and having your sword bounce off like weapons would do in Nioh 1, can stay aggressive on enemies with low stance quick slashes

Btw Tokichiro's dual swords are unique in the fact that they have both fire and lightning imbued into them. I'm trying to work out a confusion build with this weapon.
Always know your endgame before you lift a hand.

Problem with the sword is the split the accumulation in half so you need twice as much hits as one element to apply a status and that makes it hard.

This short combo is a good example. It looks pretty simple right? It actually can't be replicated unless you really know duals. That's pretty much the definition of technical, "requiring special knowledge to be understood."

Punish the proud into dash forward, changing weapons twice to sheathe, then SotC. It's a nice combo, but how this would make duals technical? You can do something like that with any other weapons that have sheathing.

Use that sarcastic tone with your mother.

Lol

You can play dumb if you'd like, fact of the matter is if you don't play duals with weapon switching and sheath loops, won't get proper damage. Meanwhile weapons like Odachi, Spear, and Axe just press square > triangle or hold a single button for big damage.

In another topic someone having trouble with the owl boss said SotC is inconsistent, so you obviously need some technical skill to perform well with them.

LOL getting consistent at spamming SotC = technical weapon.

Like I said, look up the definition of technical. You not liking it doesn't change anything.

there's also God of Wind that requires some kind of timing. It's not much, but more then you can say for most moves.

If you wanna count Earthly Flow too, well that move has very precise timing.
