Re: Weapon Run - Mentor OLB 3 Ninpo updates

Which weapon is your favorite so far? Definitely TDS. But the talons come across as a very close second. As we all know DS is the most versatile weapon in the game. Talons are superb, but I do find its limitation in taking out the two headed spin robots with the talons combo. But that's the only we...

Re: Weapon Run - Mentor OLB 3 Ninpo updates

I forget, are you doing the ToVs as well? I like the flails, but there are so many long combos, my fingers hurt using them. Hi Reim, yes. Maintained the original plan of OLB, 3 ninpo slots, all TOVs. so far cleared 1. DS 2. talons 3. DCTF 4. Tonfas and currently on flails. I like the flails for its...

Re: Weapon Run - Mentor OLB 3 Ninpo updates

Updates: completed Talons. Best gauntlet weapon I had the pleasure of using so far. Currently on flails. I really missed the MNM days. Went back to play on MNM, tried to combo and realized the reason why I chose to play on mentor. 1. I can only survive with UTs in MN with minimal combos at last enem...

Input for wings of the vermillion bird

Sorry to start a new thread about this, as it has been asked before. I can do the move SOMETIMES, as I don't seem to be able to pull the inputs off consistently. It's xx->x(Ryu does an uppercut and then blue streak to the air)yyyy. But mostly I'll only do one Y and then followed by a OL Y. I tried o...

Re: Weapon Run - Mentor OLB 3 Ninpo updates

I don't envy you. That ToV sucks. Can you do a lot of FS? I cleared TOV 4 with 3x FS. A bit luck based. No good strat. Currently in Chapter 11. Kudos for posting about the guard reset. First Time I fought the bosses, especially Elizabet, blocking all of their 3-4 combo attacks, which I initially th...

Re: Weapon Run - Mentor OLB 3 Ninpo updates

TOV4.

I honestly don't know what to do with the DS....

No good combos to maul the missile robots without surviving. I keep on taking minute damage which adds up.

Throwing away the controller helps.

in that case try to master the reset-guard trick brought by Fiend Busa. He is a total master at this trick and can explain you the details on how to do it. Again, completed OLB 3 ninpo Tonfa. It was not too bad... Now Chapter 5 DS run... My favorite weapon. Can I clarify? The guard reset is when yo...

Re: weapon run DCTF mentor help

reim0027 wrote:DCTF are beasts. Very powerful. Did you enjoy the run?
Enjoyed it immensely. The moveset is impressive. Discovered that xy can be cancelled anytime with a shuriken to proceed to YY immediately irregardless of height.

Best part is to defeat Elizabet with no UT or talons.

Completed Mentor DCTF. Achieved the achievement for a grand 5G. I used ONE LOTG for TOV9 though, otherwise 3 ninpo slots and quite minimal LB. :facepalm2: Thanks TOV9. Next up will be Tonfa Mentor OLB Ninpo minimum. That will be a fun one! I did an OLB / all ToV Scythe run on Mentor and it was a bl...

Re: weapon run DCTF mentor help

The damage is really low and she could punish it anyway. I tried strats that certainly do work but it just came down to me being too sucky. I was playing for a couple hours at most and like one day each month. I just wasn't able to do it. I'll certainly be curious to see how Nooblar goes with it. O...

Weapon Run - Mentor OLB 3 Ninpo updates

Hi all was thinking of doing weapon runs in mentor mode. Started with DCTF. New game plus, level 1 everything except for DCTF, aiming for OLB and 3 ninpo slots throughout game, if its possible. Breezed through first two chapters. No major issues until the IS ninjas in chapter 2 giving something of a...

7 years too late

And I completed MNM Story. I have completed all TOVs and all fights (as much as I can recall, I NEVER run) except for the Chapter 14 blood pool sharks and final area before dagra dai. I fell short of the 4100 enemies (mines 4024, 563! deaths, 15 hours+) that Bigalski mentioned. Well finally tally is...

Re: What the hell is with MN chapter 2

I followed reim strategy of doing a 360 Y with the lunar. It's the part where you had to run across the water and take out the three archers on the platform. Again I followed reim strategy to hug the cliff wall on the right and that helped. It's just that without these strategies a new player on MN ...

So far I have already used 2 herbs from chapter 1 till the point before the rod of trials fight. I am very afraid of using items as the price is exhorbitant. For your first run through MN do you use them or save them for the TOV and final boss? In mentor I managed to save 7 LOTG but I don't think I ...

River Styx drop and other throws

OK I tried to do it but can't as Ryu would not hold onto his opponent but doing that spinning scythe air attack. It's like a xy air attack which connects but is not a throw. The input I'm talking about on the Eclipse scythe is xxx,forward X X Y. The same goes for talons garland drop. Help please
