Juzou the Drunkard Boss Attacks
Juzou swings his sword vertically to his front. It has a long wind-up, and will be relatively easy to dodge to the side and follow up with a counter.
Juzou swipes his katana twice to his front. Although the motion is slow, you will get hit if you try to dodge to his side. Try jumping backwards and keep your distance.
Juzou spews green noxious mist from his mouth. The mist will build up your Poison meter, so try to stay away from its area of effect.
Ground Stomp + Palm Strike + Poison Mist Combo
Juzou will attempt this combo when you are near in his reach. Juzou will deliver a mighty stomp, and will follow up with a palm strike and poison mist attack. Although deadly, the combo's reach is limited to his close vicinity to the front. Step to either of his side to evade.
