O'Rin of the Water Boss Combat Tips

You Can Deathblow O'Rin By Jumping On Her

You can trigger a deathblow on O'Rin by jumping behind her, which should knock her a bit forward. If successful, a deathblow marker should appear. A single jump should do, and not a double jump.

Throw Ceramic Shard As Alternative

You can also throw a ceramic shard from behind to knock her from her position, which will also prompt a deathblow.

Accumulate Posture Damage Then Deal Deathblow

Accumulate Posture Damage Then Deal Deathblow

O'Rin of the Water has 2 HP nodes and the best way to defeat her is to parry her attacks and deal Posture damage. Even if you aren't able to lower her HP, breaking her Posture twice will help you win the fight against her.

Jump To Avoid Perilous Attack Then Jump On O'Rin

Jump Over Perilous Attack Then Counter

This enemy's Perilous Attack can be avoided by jumping. After avoiding the Perilous Attack, jump on O'Rin to stamp on her and deal damage to her Posture Bar.

If Her HP Is Low, Normal Attacks Can Be Used

If you've lowered O'Rin of the Water's HP, you can simply attack her with normal sword slashes instead of looking to increase Posture damage.

Continue To Attack Even If You're Guarded Against

Continue To Attack Even If You

You can actually attack through O'Rin's guard when you have used Divine Confetti. But make sure to hit her once or twice only so you won't trigger her counterattacks.
