Ashina Elite - Ujinari Mizuo Combat Tips
Same Attacks As Jinsuke Saze But Stronger
His attacks are similar to Jinsuke Saze, so deflect as much as you can to deal posture damage. However, with red eyes, Ujinari's attack power are amplified, and if not deflected correctly, will cause a great deal of damage to your health.Check Out How To Beat Jinsuke Saze Here!
Eavesdrop For A Bit of Lore
You can eavesdrop him before you fight him if you enter from the top area of the tower. Hide just by the stairs before you enter the area to eavesdrop.
Defeat Ujinari Mizuo by Breaking his Posture
Breaking his posture will be the most optimal way of defeating him. He takes significant damage if his attacks are deflected properly.
Break His Posture by Parrying
The most optimal way to defeat him is by parrying his attacks. His Ashina Cross attack can easily be parried once you get the rhythm of the 2 slashes. Plainly blocking his attack will cause you to take significant damage as well so time your parries well.
Ashina Elite - Ujinari Mizuo Attacks
|Ashina Cross||A Fast two-slash attack that hits one after the other if not blocked or parried|
|Hilt Thrust||He thrusts the hilt of his sword to push you back|
|Perilous Attack||An unblockable attack that sweeps in a low circular motion|
A glint will appear right before Ujinari unleashes this attack. Keep an eye out for it and once it appears, and get ready to parry twice!
He uses the hilt of his sword to push you back. Parry or block this attack.
Perilous Attack: Sweeping Slash
As a Perilous Attack, Ujinari's sweep attack is neither blockable nor parriable. You can instead jump up or jump back to avoid it. Jumping on him will also deal posture damage.
