Killed the Chained Ogre this morning. Might’ve gotten lucky? I realized I could lure him down the steps and then backstab while he was walking back up, so one deathblow down. Then I just kept backing far away, dousing him with oil, and as soon as he started to close the distance for a grab I’d hit the button to flame him. Chop chop chop and repeat.
Tenzen Yamauchi was kind of cake with the lessons I learned from Kanawada; I just attacked relentlessly and he hardly ever had time to get more than a swing or two in - attacking seemed to interrupt all of his perilous attacks too.
The snake sequence was so good. I also found the Headless. Is it worth trying to fight it right now? Based on my initial attempt, I felt like it was something I should come back to later. (I also need more confetti.)
