General Naomori Kawarada Boss Combat Tips
Deal Stealth Deathblow To Remove 1 HP Node
General Naomori Kawarada has 2 HP nodes and you can instantly take one of them out by doing a stealth Deathblow. Stay on the roof and jump on top or behind him to deal this devastating attack.
Parry & Deflect His Attacks
In this fight, you can parry & deflect most of General Naomori Kawarada's attacks - save for his Perilous Attack. Deflecting will deal Posture Damage to him and will make it easier for you to deal the final Deathblow.
Dodge Away When He Does Perilous Attack
When you see the red Kanji symbol flashing above you, immediately step-dodge backwards. You cannot deflect or parry perilous attacks and these can hurt your Posture Bar pretty badly, so it's best to avoid them!
