Heavy Two Slash Attack

Heavy Two Slash Attack

This attack can easily be parried to deal posture damage.

Perilous Grab Attack

Perilous Grab Attack

He lifts his left hand open, and will grab you. Once the prompt appears, jump back or step dodge to avoid this attack.

Flaming Sword

Flaming Sword

Douses his sword with alcohol to burn it, and deals burning damage. Burn status also builds up if you block this attack, so it's best to simply avoid it until the flame wears off.

Perilous Sweep Attack

Perilous Sweep Attack

Prepare to jump as he lowers his sword down and avoid getting hit especially if the sword is burning.

Stomp Attack

A heavy stomp attack. There's a slight delay on the stomp so time your parry well.

Heavy Overhead Attack

Heavy Overhead Attack

A heavy two hand overhead swing. Parry if this sword is not burning, but step dodge or jump back to avoid getting hit if the sword is in flames.

Headbutt to Slash Attack

Headbutt to Slash Attack

A quick headbutt that is followed up by a one hand slash. Parry both attacks to deal posture damage. But do be careful if the sword is burning and just avoid the attack entirely.

Palm Strike

Palm Strike

Strikes you with his left palm. This looks very similar to his perilous grab attack which can be a tricky mix-up. Parry when you don't see the perilous attack prompt.

Fire Breath

Fire Breath

Breaths a strong blast of flame towards his front. This attack does not track you so move to the sides to avoid this attack.
