Ashina Swordsman

Soldiers first encountered in the prologue, patrolling in the Ashina Outskirts and throughout Ashina Castle.

Behaviour and Tactics

  • Five-slash Combo: a combo consisting of five swift strikes.
  • Two-slash Combo: a combo consisting of a horizontal slash followed by a vertical one.
  • Dual Slash: a horizontal slash to the side, followed up by a reverse horizontal slash.

Their attacks are rather slow and their posture can be exhausted by a few quick strikes, opening them up for a Deathblow.

Ashina Rifleman

Three found near the Old Grave Sculptor's Idol.

Behaviour and Tactics

  • Shoot: shoots once then reloads.
  • Stock Jab: hits his target with the stock of the gun if they are too close.

Simply rapidly pressing the attack button is enough to defeat them.

Ashina Spear-Bearer

A spear-bearing Ashina soldier, encountered first to the left on a platform nearby the Chained Ogre in Ashina Outskirts.

Behaviour and Tactics

  • Perilous Attack.pngPerilous Thrust: a forward thrust of his spear.
  • Perilous Attack.pngPerilous Charge: charges forward with the spear, hitting several times.

His attacks can be deflected but it is safer to jump on him to deal posture damage. He can be killed in a few hits.

The one that is fought near the Chained Ogre in the Ashina Outskirts will start patrolling towards the stairs once Wolf approaches the Ogre, so it is advised to pull the mini-boss down to the bottom of the stairway, or to finish the spear-bearer first, as the Ogre is breaking free of its shackles.
