A detailed Strategy goes here. It should feature details on the build, level and recommended weapons and items as well as counters for specific attacks.


Ishida Mitsunari (Boss) has two attack phases. In the first phase, his basic combos are slow and easy to adapt to. In the second Phase, ??

First Phase
Izuna Fury Summons his guardian spirit, then slashes in several directions while releasing wind waves with each swing. Almost always uses this at the start of the fight.
Sword Combo Performs basic attack combos that include thrusts and jumping slashes. These attacks have a deceptively long range but poor tracking, so constantly strafing to either side is recommended.
Sword Plunge Stabs his sword into the ground, creating a yokai realm and recovering his ki. Only uses this when he is completely out of ki.
Second Phase
Izuna Barrage Summons his guardian spirit, then performs Night Rain while sending out waves of wind energy. This move marks the start of the 2nd phase.
Night Rain Much like the sword skill, Mitsunari does a spinning hop forwards. When he lands, he quickly slashes 4 times.
Standing Quadrisect Sheathes his sword, then quickly slashes 4 times while spinning and sending out wind waves. Similar to his opening move, but much faster.
Pounce Jumps and hovers in the air for a split second, then flies towards the player. If this attack hits, Mitsunari will pin the player to the ground and cut them twice for heavy damage.
Spirit Slash Performs a heavy vertical slash while sending out his guardian spirit to attack the player. Will sometimes use this attack at the end of a combo.
Spirit Grab Extends his arm while summoning his guardian spirit to seize the player and slam them into the ground.

      This boss always starts the fight swinging wildly and missing you for a few seconds, going berserk on that Amrita power. This will let you use items to bring the start to your favor. The weakness talisman is a good opening, your first few blows can almost reach 700 w a sword. You have enough time to buff yourself then weakness talisman him since his wild start is quite long. when you fight him, you let him do his stuff and hit him. If he gets you, don't hit back, the stagger will cause too much time, back up and try again. Moving sideways is ideal here, since he has a long reach grab As well as energy slashes.dont bother with a final blow. It's harder to hit him with that because he gets up fast, though it's doable if you are near when his ki is out and he falls. A better alternative is to living weapon once he is nearly run out of ki, then use it to empty him and stagger him to death. You may kill him if you get him with a weakness talisman first, then living weapon to suck up his almost gone ki and get him to stagger. Do not living weapon after you drain his ki. Your living weapon animation is more than enough time for him, to stand up and recover his ki. It will be wasted.

        His initial wind spread atacks missed me by a lot because he starts at some little highground so they all went above my head...made no sense to me.

        sloth talisman -> ez fight
        seems also to be weak to fire, or i was overleveled cause i used my living weapon at like 50% (like usual) and he died so fast that it felt like i could have used it at 80% or more and he would still be dead....
