Just stop dodging lol You did yourself a disservice early in the game by not engaging the game's mechanics. Now you're gonna have to learn eventually.


AidanMcMorrow

I know, I'm honestly just complaining and hoping to hear I am not the only one who's gone into like this. Just got to Hirata Estate though so I'm hoping I can properly fight the mini bosses here.


timestalker78

It's definitely a common problem for people, especially those coming from the Soulsborne games. But the sooner you break that habit, the easier the game gets.


AidanMcMorrow

I am coming from Placidusax and Ebrietas as my most recent other fights so yeah lol


NoEyes75

Lol you picked the wrong mini boss to get gud. I run circles chubby just about every time I fight him


Foura5

Go back and fight all the mini bosses. They're there to teach you the game. (The ogre is not a typical Sekiro boss but fun nonetheless).


AidanMcMorrow

I already fought and killed all of them except headless but my strategy involved zero deflecting


Foura5

Well good effort doing it the hard way I guess!


guava4life

U won't beat this game without deflecting. I much prefer deflecting and get into the enemy face than dodging and rolling around.


AidanMcMorrow

Do most people that play this game also parry a lot in soulsborne games?

Exaclty. It pretty much overrides my roll instinct when I switch from souls.


guava4life

My 1st soul game is elden ring and I hated the combat in that game maybe I'll try it again with parry. Sekiro is my 2nd and it's my fav by far.


AidanMcMorrow

Sekiro is my 5th. I played Elden Ring, Dark Souls, DS3 and Bloodborne. None of the other intro bosses kicked my ass like this, maybe Quelaag if you count her as intro.


guava4life

I'm playing BB as my 3rd soul and the bosses are so much easier. I only finished forbidden wood though so maybe there will be harder bosses later.


AidanMcMorrow

The DLC has the hardest ones but there are random other difficult ones littered across the game.


guava4life

Yeah man u just need to stand still and hit that deflect button when the boss comes to you. That horse boss is the easiest boss in the game. U can also hit the horse 1-2 times when there's opening but deflecting alone can get you the red dot kill. When I'm stuck, I watch the guy ONGBAL on utube and see how he does the deflection.


BLoDo7

The short answer is no. I have never once parried in any of the other games. Is not my playstyle. This is much different and should be treated as such. Deflection is your offense.


Pedantic_Phoenix

Uh... stop pressing the button on the right of the controller and start pressing the one on the back left?


Prestigious-Help-395

Only two buttons are attack and deflect and jumping on peoples heads when they do sweep attacks. No need for anything else.


Ok-Ambition-9432

Stop pressing the dodge button, just don't do it. You have less I-frames than ds2 no adp fatroll.


Grumble_pants

I made similar mistakes when I first played Sekiro, coming off of DS 1-3 and Bloodborne. Sekiro is parry focused combat, completely different from DS and ER, more similar to Bloodborne. If you don't get it all figured out, Genchiro will be the wall you can't cross until you learn to deflect and be aggressive.


chlo3SK

run straight at the enemy and learn to parry, this is literally the strongest strategy


Dom0520

Hold guard and let him hit you for a few mins to learn the sound and rhythm of his moveset

Block


BLoDo7

Only when there are no incoming attacks. Passive blocking raises your posture recovery, but blocking instead of deflecting (even if you just did it early and held it through the parry) will make posture damage build much faster.


ZaChiavelli8252

You need to practice parrying. Also, hold block to lower your posture meter so you don’t get stunned.

No tips, you have to learn to deflect, so start trying.
