... So, how do you supposed to defeat phaleg the Mary-sue (Sarcasm)?
After like countless attempts at doing so, I mostly get killed because most of the time attempting at guard-stancing I end up just blocking but not counter attacking even though I properly time them (I am playing Katana braver), so you end up your character being stunned in place receivng loads of damage, not to mention that some of her attacks just can't be counter blocked, so you end up getting insta-killed (Very fair).
And to be honest, I dont know who thought it was a good design anyway, because it requires you to replay the same fight over and over again to memorise attacks, which gets so much frustrating that you just rage quit at the end.
I realise that to be good at the game, you must practice and have skills, but in this case you must have some insane super-human reactions or skills to be able to defeat phaleg, and I have no idea how other players do even manage to dodge or counter all her attacks with such ease.
Theoreticaly probably going against her with weak gear is suicide, but even still, I've seen players on youtube dodging/countering every of her attacks with low upgrade gear with ease for 5 minutes or more straight.
Honestly, feels flat out humiliating, I have no idea how those players manage to get such tremendously quick reaction skills
