[1.0] - Beginning
The game starts as your main character, Shinbu, trains on top of a cliff.
After the cut scene
Shinbu will move to Genbu-Seiryu Highway going to Chikuan
but hears some noises, from a girl, Seiryu disciple, that is
being attacked by 3
warriors. Shinbu decides to help the girl out. This is the first battle in the
game and this is
very easy, you only need to get one of them to 0 HP and the
battle will end. And you got only one Bugei scroll, Seiryu
4-dan, at the
moment too and no chi arts so just keep attacking.
After the battle the girl, named Sui Lin, tells
you she she needs to get to
Chikuan and is looking for a guy named Shinbu. Yes, that's you. Shinbu decides
not to reveal
himself yet but escorts her to Chikuan. You are now moved
automatically to Eastern Seiryu - Chikuan, your hometown. You
are advised to go
to the far end of the village to Prof. Seidatsu's school so this is what you
should do. There are
shops around this city and an inn but you shouldn't be
needing those at the moment but crush all boxes and pots for items.
Do not sell
Once you reach the western exit just continue to the left ignoring all people
go into the Seidatsu's house. Shinbu and Sui Lin have a discussion. She
reveals that your all clan has been totally obliterated.
You and she are the
only ones alive now and one of you need to become a Clan lord and restore the
clan. Seidatsu comes
in and talks to you too about stuff. He gives you the
Ginmei Sword, the weapon you'll be using basically the rest of the
tells about your father and San'Yuan techniques, ultimate style from all
other techniques are derived from.
After the talk is over grab the chest on
left, it contains a soul talisman, which automatically resurrects you in case
death so it's wise to equip it immediately. It's not worth equipping other
items because it's faster to use them from the
options menu and it doesn't
hinder your combat. Notice also that your chi art is now available on the
left right corner
in the circle. Keep it loaded all the time and use in the
beginning of the combat. Talk to Seidatsu and Sui Lin until they
everything and leave.
After this you get a cut scene from the town and see Shinbu wonder about his
Sights are mind boggling and the tune coming from playing the Ginmei
Sword is kinda catchy. After the cut scene you wake
up from the inn. Go down
and out of the building and then run back to Seidatsu's house. You have a
with Seidatsu and Sui Lin and decide to go to the Seiryu
clan. Seidatsu gives you a San'Yuan kenbu, which isn't very useful
but in the beginning of the game. Run to the door and Seidatsu gives you a
lesson about chi. Make notes what's
good against what, although it's
pretty clearly visible in the Chi Arts options anyways. Also note what he
kenpus. This is way for maximizing your damage but I'll let you
know more about it when we actually get a free-style scroll.
we go to the Seiryu temple. Head out of the building, then east out of
the village. At the games you have a short discussion
again. After it you
are again at the Genbu-Seiryu Highway. This is good spot to get some
experience and familiarize
yourself with the controls. You are attacked by
two sand warriors, just beat them. Note how Sui Lin works on herself so
don't need to pay attention to her. Keep in mind that stuff that monsters
drop disappear fairly fast so you need
to pick them as soon as possible,
especially all the kenpus. Seiryu temple is located to the east so head
the chests and everything in the path and if you get a Seiryu
Kenpu 6 add it to your scroll at Bugei Scrolls options. Getting
it is very
advisable but not necessary. It helps a lot a bit later. Notice how it knocks
down the opponent when it hits.
Head right until you exit the area and get to
second party of the Highway. Here you need to head more to right, not to
over the rice plantations. In a while you get to a chest that contains
a vita drop, pick it up and continue to right.
the temple just rush in. Continue to right until Shinbu and Sui Lin start
talking. They notice that someone has buried
everyone. After the discussion
is a good point to heal yourself with refresh drops. Go right and explore
the area around
arena getting all items and go inside after. The Seiryu Sword
has been stolen so just pick the chest in here. It contains
Seiryu 5 dan
scroll. If you have all bugeis for it, add them to the scroll and start using
it but otherwise just let
it be for now until you get the bugeis. Here's a
good spot to save now. Head out and walk a bit towards the arena. You
Eikoku, Bugei disciple, who buried your former clan members and master and
who seeks for training. After the long
discussion you are going to give a
lesson to him.
He's the first "boss" of this game. Humanoid bosses are vulnerable
techniques that knock them down. Remember that Seiryu bugei 6? Also holding
O-button causes you to parry
so if you are taking lot of beating use it and
right after the parry hit him with your combo. If and when your combo knocks
down take some distance and wait for him to get up and then rush in and
do the combo again. Fighting with this tactic makes
all the human bosses
fairly easy so try to hit with the last hit in your combo. If you are having
trouble heal yourself
at the Items options. He can be pretty hard and using
chi art also at the beginning of the battle is a good idea. If you
having lots of trouble with him you should level up before coming here.
After the battle he wants to loan your
kenpu but you don't give it to him.
He talks you into having a memorial session for your dead master. Afterwards
notice that one of your kenpus is gone and he has gone to Northern Genbu.
Sui Lin forces you to follow him.
- Chase of the thief (Northern Genbu)
Get out of the temple and head west. Remember the rice plantations? Get back
North of the plantations is a house and some chests near it. You cannot
get it yet so you need to just skip it for now.
From there head to Northeast.
Shortly after you get to T-crossing. To north there is a harbor but for now
to right. At the game to Northern Genbu you meet a purple
scorpion, which can take some beating. It's fairly easy thou
and chi arts
is a good weapon against it.
At the Northern Genbu head to right and you have a discussion again. Shinbu
Sui Lin decide to part ways and Shinbu wants to go to see his parents'
grave at the top of the mountain. Head to north
after the discussion and
again to right when the screen changes. Soon you will meet some robbers.
These robbers drop
bombs that explode when they die so watch out for
those. Notice also the statues in the hollows. They are breakable. They
drop some kenpus so it's not a bad idea to kill them as you can
get kenpus for free-style scrolls when you get it and you
to come back then. Especially some Suzaku kenpus are nice to get, number
10 being one of my favorites. When
you get to large opening with a small
hut on the right side of it head to northwest uphill. Continue to the
the way up killing bandits and take the recovery drop from the
chest on the way and get to grave. After the talking it's
time to go
downhill. Notice the large ledge in the map where you cannot get by
walking? Jump there when you are going
downwards. It contains a chest
with soul talisman. Equip it, heal and save. Then continue downwards.
two bounty hunters harassing a girl. You decide to cut in and
of course it ends in a battle. Muzo attacks you and he's
easy to defeat
with similar manner as Eikoku was. He doesn't need too much beating until
the talk starts again. It turns
out that they killed your parents! And the
fight continues with both of them against you. Just keep using the same
and it should be a walk in a park. Uzo goes down fast and then you
need to give Muzo some more teaching and it's over.
After the battle you
get Bugei Byakko 4 dan and they run away. You talk to the girl, Lu Yan
and her sister thinks you
are messing with her and attacks you, great
an another battle. You should already know what to do with humanoid
She hits like 60 ton truck and her chi art causes almost 60 points
of damage. She introduces herself as Li Yin. Afterwards
you escort them
to the bridge that ends to Kekkei Lake. Make a note where this place
is located because you need to
return here later.
You exit the bridge. The place where you fought is to southwest from here
and now you must head
to southeast. Waste the bandits on the way. This and
the hill where you already were are good spots to kill them too if
wish to get kenpus from them. Just exit the area and come back and they
re-spawn. I decided to clean the area twice.
Kill them or not head afterwards
to southeast from the bridge. Sui Lin is sitting just left from you after you
out of there. She is a bit easy to miss. After talking to her head east.
You come to a place where there is a closed gate
with seals on it. There's
a breakable boulder inside and you cannot get it yet. Head more east and
you arrive to Northern
Genbu - Hokusai.
Hokusai is a town like Chikuan with shops and smiths. You must be wounded and
you probably have
money to upgrade your sword so lets head as much east as
possible. You need to exit to right couple of times. It's also
good idea to
sell all your unnecessary crap now. That means curse bullets, essences,
animal feeds and charms. When you
have ventured enough east you come to
place where you can exit to south. Here's the Genbu temple but don't go
yet, continue to east. At the very end of the town after the U-turn
there's a smith. Ask him to temper your sword. Return
back to the point where
the U-turn started and where the path splits to north. Head there, before the
exit there's exit
to the inn go in there and rest if necessary. After that
run back to the entrance to the Genbu temple and save. Go towards
and you can hear sounds of fighting. After short talk go in and start heading
west killing the sand warriors
in the way. At the end of the long bridge you
find Eikoku. He asks you to help his master to fight Genra, former Genbu
Luckily you don't need to fight him... yet. He just butchers the
Genbu clan lord and takes the Genbu sword and leaves.
Inside you have a chat
with Eikoku, whose name has been revealed to be Eigen really. You get your
kenpu back and grap
the chests are the talk is finished. Inside are Genbu
5 dan-1st scroll and Fresh nectar.
Talk to the Eigen and then
Sui Lin and leave. There are lots of stuff to break
in the yard so get them on the way out. Also on the north side of the
after you come out of Clan lord's room, there is a boulder with writing on it.
Go next to it and press X-button
to get Genbu chi arts. After that head out
and towards the inn. Shinbu and Sui Lin take a rest in the inn and a girl
you to go to visit Kairoku, a scholar. Shinbu and Sui Lin part their
ways again. Sui Lin goes to Byakko and you go to see
the scholar. Run to
west and exit the inn area. In the next area head south towards the dead-end
that looks like a T
upside down. The man in the red is Kairoku. Talk to him
and he gives you Free-style scroll-1 and Kirin bugei 10. Oh, joy.
If you have
1440 money or more buy Warrior's ring from the accessory store and then head
back to exit in front of inn.
Oh and equip the damn ring.
Now that you have Free-style scroll you can start doing your own maneuvers.
has only 2 slots at first but it gets more as you use it and change
the kenpus in it so it is advisable to do that as much
as possible. It can get
to 10 slots which is maximum in the game. It also gets the next slots pretty
quickly and becomes
basically the only scroll you use. Experimenting with the
kenpus is very fun and you need to keep in mind few things. Remember
Seidatsu told you about ordering the kenpus in right way. If you place them
in right order they do more damage.
This basically means that you place them
in the order that is shown in Chi Arts disc. Start from one point and then
clock wise. At first this isn't so necessary but later in the game it
helps a lot. Also remember how useful the knockdown
effect was in Seiryu
scroll? Do the same thing in your free-style scrolls. All Clans have moves
that knock down opponents
or even send them flying around. Place one of those
in the end of the combo but not in the middle because rest of your
become wasted. Otherwise you are pretty free to do what ever you wish with it.
I like to use kenpus that are
fast, hit large area with lots hits and are a
bit maneuverable. Suzaku kenpu 10 is a good example. I also like hits like
Kirin kenpu 10 what you just got.
You should also have Higen arts now. It's basically that you throw your
with your sword. Sounds neat, is crappy but needed later in game.
Ignore it for now. You should keep tempering your Ginmei
Sword because sooner
or later it won’t be enough to fight with. It's very good idea to train your chi
well because they get stronger and better.
- Western Byakko
If you need a rest take it at the inn, then continue north out of the Hokusai.
Continue east and
you will come to a lake. You can just walk through it or go
through land from north side of it. After crossing it continue
more to the east
and you'll meet your first archer. They can be annoying, especially later when
they get poisoned arrows.
Cross the another lake and you get to the Byakko
gate. It is guarded by red scorpion which hits you with it club like a
player doing lots of damage. Chi arts and very mobile kenpus are good against
them. Waste it and get the chest
with Suzaku 4-dan scroll and then head through
the gate into Western Byakko.
Move to east and you meet a bunch of
Kirin warriors. Their boss can take lots
of beating and hits hard but they shouldn't be a problem for you. After
them continue east until you meet Byakko disciples and Lu Yan. Their
leader introduces himself as Soh Yu. Talk to them
continuously until Lu Yan
leaves to his tent and after that talk to Soh Yu and get Byakko 6 dan-1st
and Byakko kenpu
6. After he goes away run to east corner of the camp to
rest for a while. After lots of talking with Lu Yan talk to Soh
and then we can leave to east to path that curves towards north. Don't
start climbing the mountain yet. Crush
the monkey boulder, it contains some
kenpu and get the chest with vita drop next to it and then start climbing
up, Grab the chest on they way with body essence. In the next
zone continue climbing until you get to the wall. Talk to
the 2 guards on the
way and continue to the east. Soon you get to massive gate. Sell your crap
here and talk to the
gate guards and the gate will open and in we go.
Hakuzen is a town again where you can sell your crap and buy something
needed. Also take a rest in the inn which is located on the west side of
the place. There isn't anything interesting
here so continue northwest
until you get to another zone. Here head northeast and then north when the
path splits. Climb
all the way to up and when you get there head west and
get the boxes there. There is a soul talisman and recovery drop
them. Head back to big stairs in east and talk to the guards. Soh Yu arrives
and lets you in. Once in head
east and get the chests with snake bone necklace
and Byakko 6 dan-2nd scroll. Equip the necklace and head to west. Continue
path until you get to a short cut scene. Byakko sure is impressive. After
it head east to the door. Soh Yu opens it again
for you. Talk to the clan lord,
Jok Xiu. Decipher the Byakko chi arts if you can but if you cannot just head
think it's level based but they aren't needed anyways just yet. Clan
lord told you to go to Suzaku so that's where we are
going next. Head out of
Hakuzen and to the gate where I told would be way to Suzaku.
- Message to Suzaku
Head through the gate and start running to east. Watch out for the purple
spots because they
poison you. There are lots of opponents around here so
be careful. Break the monkey boulder with kenpu inside on they way.
the chest with mind essence also on the way. You meet soon your first
Seima guardian. They are pain in the ass some
times. Chi arts and lots of
beating is the cure for them. Also note what colour their head is as it
best damage type against it. Climb the hill and take chest
with Kirin 4-dan scroll. Here's also a closed area into which
get just yet.
Run east and you can get only into Koukin cave so head in. Watch out for
as it paralyzes. Inside you see Sui Lin so follow her. Good
time to heal and save also. She attacks you so defeat her like
humanoid boss. She is fairly weak and goes down fast but she'll throw a
bomb inside a sulfur cave, a bad idea.
You get nuked. You are dead.
No not really, you wake up outside the cave with a red man next to you.
He's Lei Gai. You
and he decide to go to Jurakunan. Climb the hill and
continue to east until you get to a chest with recovery drop. Notice
there are two ledges in the map. Drop down to the one in right and take
the chest with miracle nectar. There's an
another chest at the bottom too
with Righteous 6 dan-1st scroll. After grabbing them head east and you and
Lei Gai with
part ways. He gives you Suzaku kenpu 7 and Suzaku 5 dan-1st
scroll. The way to north goes to harbor but just continue to
Jurakunan. The path splits in the large opening. To east is Jurakunan so
let's continue there.
Jurakunan head immediately to right. In there is a man behind barrels.
Bash them and talk to him. He gives you second free-style
scroll. Go to inn
in the building next to him and rest. Head north and temper your Ginmei Sword
if you are able to.
I was when I sold some more crap. Continue towards north
to Suzaku temple. Run to north past the large flame and talk to
You meet a Suzaku disciple, Yui Min, who isn't very interested to let you
inside. She'll tell you that Sui
Lin has gone in so you rush past the guards.
Inside go right and take the soul talisman from the chest and then go north.
the Chi arts tablet on the right, you probably cannot get it yet though.
Continue north to Clan lord's quarters. Sui Lin
has been beaten by Clan lord,
Xiuk Yu. After lots of talk a disciple rushes in telling that there is a fight.
the Fire Spring. There you see Yen Lan, a traitor. She has become one
of the Kirin's four divine generals and wants the
Suzaku sword. Our knight in
the samurai pants, yes that's you, decides to cut in and you get to fight Yen
a humanoid boss so you know what to do. Beat her with kenpus that
knock her down. Although I beat her with Seiryu chi arts
2, Flying dragon,
mostly. I attacked her with chi arts then ran away to charge then did it again
(she is knocked down
every time you use it.)
After you have beaten her go back to Xiuk Yu's chamber. She tells you to go to
tell Kairoku return to Jurakunan. She also gives you
Suzaku 5 dan-2nd scroll.
- The Moon sea
Run out of Jurakunan and head west to the place where I said the harbor would
be. At the Rakuhoku
run towards the building north until you reach it and then
run to right and get the chest with Seiryu 6 dan-1st scroll
and the various
crap from the boxes. Sell unnecessary stuff here too. Then run to far
northwest end of the pier and
talk to the guy there. He will take you on his
ship. Off we go.
You chill on board for a while when the captain
comes to talk to you and four
flying fishes attack you. They cause paralyze when they hit you but can't take
Chi arts for the win. My Flying Dragon killed them instantly.
Then you spot a massive turtle/snake thing in the water and
the captain decides
that you are going to take cover at a nearby Gokuho island. You decide to take a
tour to the island.
Just head east as much as possible killing the skeletons and
grabbing all things in the path. In the chest you find vita
drop, deluxe chi
cake, white snake fang, madoya powder and Kirin 5 dan scroll. After the
short cut scene just run back
to the ship and talk to the captain.
The ship drops you to Hokusai so go to Kairoku's houseboat just south from
Kairoku isn't there so read the note and head to inn afterwards.
You wake up to battle noises and see Uzo and Muzo again
fighting with Lei Gai.
Talk to everyone upstairs and run downstairs. After short talk the fight
starts again. This one
is easy with Lei Gai helping you and just use the
basic tactic against humanoid bosses. I whacked Uzo down fast and then
Lei Gai fight Muzo while I spammed chi arts in the backrow. After the battle
you get Kirin 6 dan-1st scroll. You
are asked to pay for the damages to inn
and you have to go to talk about it to Eigen at Genbu temple. So run there.
promises to pay for you so are off the hook. You tell Eigen what's been
going on in the world and you promise to get Genbu
Sword back to him. He gives
you Genbu kenpu 13 and Genbu 5 dan-2nd scroll. Then you decide to go to check
is back already. Take the brisk jog there and read the sign
again. It says that Kairoku has gone to Chikuan in Eastern
Seiryu so it's
time to go home now.
- Back to Chikuan
Shinbu decides to visit his master's grave while going back to Seiryu so
we are off to Seiruy
temple again. Head west out of Hokusai and more west
until you come to the rice plantations again. From there head to southeast
the Seiryu temple. At the gates you will meet another banished Seiryu
disciple, Densei. After the talk run to the graves.
After all talk exit the
temple and run west until you come to Chikuan. When you reach the town you
probably notice how
hard the trash mobs are now. An easy way to gain money that
you go in front of the series of lakes by the path leading
to the harbor and the
western Byakko gate. Then you beat the ox thing and the three purple warriors
and get a total
tempei amount of 515. Then I save then load then keep doing it
like that.If you don't have Seiryu chi arts 3, Soaring
Dragon, yet they might be
really hard at times. Training chi arts helps a lot. Also when you reach the
town try to temper
your sword again and rest. After that run to Seidatsu's
school at the far west end of the town. Before going inside the
talk to the old man in the west part of the school. He will give you third free-
style scroll. Go inside
and chat with Kairoku.
Now you need to give the Ginmei Sword back to its rightful owner. Remember
the bridge near
your parents' grave? This is where we are heading now. Exit
Chikuan and run to east until you come to the rice plantations
then go to northeast and then to east and when you get through Genbu gate
head northeast until you get to
the bridge. Run to its end and you get long
cutscene with some stuff revealed. After talking so much that you are getting
headache and watching lots of cutscenes you need to head back to Chikuan to
talk to Kairoku. You should know the way by
now. Rest at Chikuan and visit
Seidatsu's house. After this we need to get to Suzaku. Go out of Chikuan and
new path to north. Head to west and after crossing the lake take the
path that goes up to hill. There's a chest containing
soul talisman at the
end of it. Jump down and head west again. There's two Seima guardians at the
gate which is closed
until you kill them. They are a bitch and can be hard
to defeat. After you kill them take the chest in the grass with Genbu
scroll inside and go through the gate. In Suzaku continue heading to west
until you start camping. Afterwards
head west again. Don't go to Jurakunan
just yet. Continue to another zone in west. Here's two red onis and you
that the tunnel is open now. Kill them and enter the tunnel.
Inside are lots of skeletons and a chest containing Suzaku
6 dan-2nd scroll.
After you have got it get out and head east to Jurakunan
In Jurakunan take rest, save and head
to the temple. The fire is out and
you get to meet Genra and his pet turtle. He is Genbu, one of the four gods.
tactic doesn't work against gods, damn. Here's what you should do:
Rush on its side and beat the legs until they disappear.
This causes it to
fall down and now it's time to beat it's head, front or rear, your choice.
I did rear head. Also moves
that knock down seem to immobilize it a bit so
using them in your combo is wise. Yes, your combo can consist only them
you wish. Legs take around 350 damage each to go down and head takes few
thousands. Killed him without losing single
hp. Afterwards he drops
Genbu kenpus 21, 27 and 28, Holy drop and 1500 taichi. Genra is amazed by
your performance and
attacks. He's humanoid and basic tactic works like a
charm. Around 650-700 damage is enough for him and you get tossed
Fire Spring! Luckily it's out of order. You have a short discussion with
Yen Lan who obviously has some issues.
Take recovery drop from the chest
and go upstairs. It leads to Xiuk Yu's chamber. After the talk go upstairs
the Suzaku chi arts. Then save and talk to Lei Gai. You are going
to fight him so use the basic tactic again. Easy battle
again. He gives you
second kenpu for San'Yuan. Talk to Sui Lin next to Suzaku tablet and head to
Clan lord's chamber
again. Talk to her and head out. At the entrance go west
and talk to Kairoku. Then move more to west and talk to Yui Min.
you Suzaku 6 dan-2nd scroll. Talk to basically everyone and return to Clan
lord's chamber and talk to her
[1.6] - Return to Hakuzen
and Gokuho island
From Jurakunan you need to get to Byakko territory. You have to walk. Faster
way is to go all
the way west through Koukin cave and more and more west.
Before Koukin cave there's a chest with white snake fang, pick
Inside Hakuzen in Byakko head as much as possible to right. Notice the path
that curves to down. Go there and
talk to the old man at the end. He'll give
you Free-style scroll-4. After that head to Byakko clan lord's chamber. When
get to the door talk to the guards first and when the door opens head in.
Go upstairs and before talking to the Clan lord
take the Byakko Chi arts if
you didn't get them last time. Then talk to the Jok Xiu. You get banished by
Head out of the building and Hakuzen after it. You meet Densei at
the gate. He tells you to head to sea so that's where
we are going. Head west
to Hokusai, we need to pick up something while we are heading for harbor.
Take the chests at
Byakko gate they contain Suzaku charm and chi cake.
Behind the gate there's 3 Seima guardians. If you want the chest kill
which is nice but you can just ignore the chest too. If you beat the three of
them another two will appear. So
it's five in total, terrible. Inside the
chest is Seima crest that give +5 to all three stats but it's not really
spending all that time and effort to get so I skipped it.
At Hokusai take rest and see if you can temper your Ginmei
Near the temple where the merchant ship dropped you there's a man in
a bit east from it. Talk to him. Then
rush to west and talk to all old
mans on the top pathway. One of them gives you Free-style scroll-5.
Now remember the
sealed place just west of Hokusai? Go there and pick the
chest with Righteous 6 dan-2nd scroll and smash the boulder for
Go back to Hokusai and take a boat to Gokuho Island. At the island head
to east to the tower again. You meet
Uzo and Muzo again. Seidatsu and Lei Gai
take on them while you run inside to find your father. The tower is full of
and chests. The chests contain: Genbu 7 dan scroll, madoya powder,
black iron anklet, mind essence, leaf fish dagger and
body essence. At the
top you find your father. You need to smash the pillars with right kenpus so
get beating. In the
chest there is Kirin 7 dan-1st scroll. After talking to
your dad head out of the tower.
Outside you get to battle
Uzo and Muzo for the last time and avenge your
mother. They should be easy for you now as you should have mastered the
slaying tactic. You get San'Yuan Way kenpu from Seidatsu and
New San'Yuan kenpu, which complete the San'Yuan scroll you
mother avenged Seidatsu, Hohaku and Lei Gai praise your skills and tell
you that Byakko is going to
be attacked soon and tell you to go protect
the Byakko sword. Talk to the trio again until they all give you San'Yuan
Art and Way 9 dan scrolls.
- Defend the White Tiger clan
Head back to the boat and take it to Ryosou in Western Byakko. Take the
chest at the harbor and head out. From there head east through
the jungle and up the hill to Suzaku gate. The closed area
next to it was
open for me now and got the Byakko kenpu 27 out of the chest. Then head
back to west towards Byakko territory.
There head again to east to Hakuzen.
Inside get rest at the inn and sell your stuff. Also buy some healing items
you are low, you are going to need a bunch soon. After doing all these
head to the Byakko temple again. Talk with everyone
on the path and when
you get up to the door again head west and break the stuff there and grab
one more Soul talisman.
If you have talked with everyone from bottom of the
hill leading up to the door (don't miss the guy on the far right near
door) the doors should open, if not you have missed someone. Head in and to
Clan lord's chamber. Notice the new
way there next to the Byakko Chi arts
tablet? Go in there.
After lots and lots of talking and happening you are
moved to outside. Run
back to the Toshintetsu room. Save before entering it. You are going to have
a battle against
Crimson Phoenix, Suzaku. This is where you will need the
Higen arts. The tactic against is to dodge it's attacks while
around the room. For dives move to sides and for breaths, well try to avoid
getting full frontal hit. It
doesn't hurt that much anyways. If you have Genbu
kenpu 21 or something else that is very maneuvarable make a combo with
or few of them in it and when it starts the breath attack use it to hop quickly
sideways. You should be able
to avoid at least some of the damage this way.
Also stand in the middle of the area so it's you have more time to avoid
After a while it stops hovering in one place. Now it's your time to throw your
sword at it. When the sword hits
use Seiryu Chi arts and it will drop to
ground. Now beat it with your combo, which should contain lots of Genbu moves,
are most effective against it. Also use high end kenpus because it cannot
knock down so you can spam them continuously.
I had 6 slots in my free-style
scroll so I made a combo that started and ended with Genbu kenpus. Also if
Chi arts is well trained use it instead of Seiryu. When it takes
it to air again load your Chi arts for next use. After
repeating this tactic
for several times, it can take around 1000-2000 damage, it dies and you get
Soul talisman, Suzaku
kenpus 18, 28 and 30 and 2000 taichi. As a sidenote:
This is one of the best done flying opponents I've seen in any game.
this Shinbu goes berserk and decides to wipe out the Kirin alone. You
should prepare for going there now. You need to talk
to both Eigen and Xiuk
Yu so lets head to Hokusai first to the west. You can use boats too but walking
with needed experience, kenpus and most importantly taichi. When
you are back at the Byakko territory run east until you
are at the gate again.
It's closed but head east to newly opened area. There's a chest with Byakko
7 dan-2nd scroll
in it and some other boxes. Here you can get to Toshintetsu
room too but head back to west after you get the chest. Talk
to the old man
at the gates and he tells you that there's a rare item in a closed area
between Byakko and Genbu. Continue
west until you get to the hill where
the closed area is, you remember it from before right? Chests have Heavy
bomb and Ruthless 6 dan-1st scroll. Not very useful but get them anyways.
Then continue to Hokusai. At the lakes there
is one chest with frest nectar in
it. In Hokusai rest and then temper your sword if it already isn't the one
15000 taichi. Then go see Eigen at the Genbu temple. Talk to him and
Seidatsu who tells you to go to see Hohaku at his
school. Head there. Rest
there and sell your stuff. Talk to Hohaku and then go to southeast corner of
the school area
and talk to the man there. He tells you that the rice fields
have been taken care of and the gate there is now open. Head
Chests in there contain Soul talisman, Ruthless 7 dan-1st scroll and Byakko
7 dan-1st scroll. Also the boulder
contains some nice kenpu.
Now it's time to run to the west to Jurakunan. There's a chest on the way to
to a tree after the ledge. There's a soul talisman inside. Before
entering Jurakunan make sure you have 21000 taichi. If
you don't whack some
monsters to get enough. Buy Solar Protective ward. It's really helpful and
sell your Snake bone
necklace. Then head to temple. In the arena room talk
to Lei Gai and Xiuk Yu. Now you know the location of Central Kirin
are ready to rock. If you wish you can exp now and refill your healing items.
After you have done all get to
a harbor and go to Central Kirin. I had ten
soul talismans left so I decided to go there immediately.
- The fight with Banko
At the Kirin island take Seiryu 7 dan scroll from the chest and go to stairs.
Take the skill
essence from the chest on left and start heading to right
towards the gates. Each gate is protected by bunch of monsters
and you need
to use Higen arts to throw your sword to the seal on the gate and then use
the Chi art on which that particular
Clan is weak for. On the way through
all gates you get Suzaku 7 dan scroll, Kirin 7 dan-2nd scroll,
Byakko 7 dan-3rd
scroll, holy drop and Genbu 8 dan scroll. You cannot get the
last gate open yourself because you don't know Kirin Chi arts.
Run to the door
and it will be "opened" for you. After chatting save and heal yourself.
Take holy drop and soul
talisman from the chests and step forward. You are
going to meet Byakko, the white tiger. Tactic for him is to use Suzaku
combo as he's weak for it. He rushes around madly so just side step to avoid
his rushes. After some rushes it
stops, now it's time to do all out attack on
him. I suggest moves that are maneuverable so you can jump around him and
his claw attack for few seconds. He can be a bit hard and remember to use
disease removal when you get diseased.
After killing him you get
Byakko kenpus 16, 25, 26 and 30, 3000 taichi, talisman and holy drop.
Genra gets pissed off
for you and attacks, defeat him with usual humanoid
slaying technique. He can only take very little beating and goes down
After beating both of them grab the chest at the entrance containing miracle
nectar and head north. Save also.
you meet Densei and Seiryu, an azure dragon. He's pretty nasty bugger
too. Arm yourself with anti-Seiryu kenpus, meaning
metal or Byakko kenpus.
The dragon itself is not very bad but it casts lightning to Densei's sword
and he scorches you
with it then, making massive damage. There's a trick to
avoid it though but it requires taking damage too. When he's about
to fire it
Seiryu makes a tail sweep with his tail. This knocks you down making the beam
mostly miss you and take less
damage but it may backlash too so that you take
both of them. Some maneuvarable kenpu is also good to avoid it but I didn't
While he gives the lightning to Densei you cannot damage it some times
so take this time to load your own Chi arts. Also
fighting at the sides of
the area helps you to avoid it and you can whack Seiryu against the wall. When
it goes down
get Seiryu kenpus 28 and 29, 5000 taichi, soul talisman, miracle
nectar and super chi cake. After this Densei attacks.
Kill him again with the
well-trained combos. He only took 4 full combos from my 8 slot free-style
scrolls so he has
only around 1000-1200 hps.
After talking with Sui Lin take the Kirin Chi arts from the throne. Now only
you and ending is Banko. Save here and you can go back and exp
and get more items if you need them or you can go just forward
and whack the
Banko to pieces. Banko can be difficult to defeat but not that bad after you
learn how he acts. You need
to stick one of the Clan swords to the circle
that is lit by pressing X or O near it. Note that the lit seal is pillar
white light, not purple dome on a seal. When the sword is stuck there you may
attack Banko with the kenpus of that
clan. After a while Banko drains chi
from the seals and the seal changes and you need to stick one of the swords
After you have dealt 1000 damage with one type that type's sword is
permanently stuck on the ground. After all swords are
in you can use any
type to defeat him, not just San'Yuan as the game suggested earlier. In the
stage when you can use
all kenpus he should die after several thousands of
damage, which you get really fast because your combo should be doing
least 300 damage per use, 500 and more if you have already 10 slots in your
free-style scroll and have gathered experience
before coming here. It's
good idea to take distance from him when you are not attacking as it makes
dodging his attacks
very easy. I used only one free-style scroll to which
I always changed the kenpus, might be a bit slow but I liked it.
use multiple free-style scrolls to make combos or use the predefined clan
scrolls. Maneuverable kenpus are
again good idea as with all the gods. Also
I pressed upwards right all the time when attacking him so that I basically
his leg constantly. This causes him and you to rotate around and his hits
to miss you mostly. Skill essences also make
this battle a lot faster. If
you have trouble with him and looks like your healing items are running out
run to other
side of the place and heal yourself with Solar Protective charm.
This battle can last really long and you will need lots
and lots of healing
items and soul talismans to survive.
Congratulations you have now finished the game! Grab the
items Banko drops,
kenpus, taichi, few scrolls etc.. Now it's time to listen you and your father
play a duet with twin
moon swords, impressive I'd say. Also watch the ending
through fully and save after it, possibly to another slot. When
you load this
save you can start the game from the beginning with all kenpus, scrolls, items,
etc. intact! It's supposed
to be slightly harder this time also and you get the
Pure San'Yuan scroll also.
