I agree. You can see what I wrote a few pages back criticizing the input response. I have to say that it has finally clicked with me and I can't stop playing. The story is cool and the imagery is fantastic, but the campaign is not where this game truly shines. Eternal mode is great and Revenant is fantastic. The scoring system keeps the pressure on to not make any mistakes and I have figured out the different strategies for the different types of enemies. I'm over any reservations I had and can't praise this game enough.

Also I need more Revenants to challenge. My GC I'd is operaguy2112

So what exactly is Revenants? Is there a way to play against randoms or do you need their GC ID?

Is it just me or the final boss is really hard to beat? I tried using all the tips you guys have been giving me but sadly it's not working at all. I don't think I'm that lousy

Dont spam attacking. Calculate the distance before you make your move. Swipe down has great range when you have forward momentum, but the forward swipe is safer, but with less range.

Easiest way i found to do that is to use whisper, use your powers right away when youre close and was able to hit him (so that he's open to the rest of your barrage). One time i was able to beat the Sable King using this strategy, and spamming forward slashes, i didnt even have to look at the fight. That was a long time back, maybe changes have been made since then.

Ack. Been sick for a few days and haven't played much GoB. I'll be back at it soon, so keep sending challenges and I'll do likewise.
And feel free to add me on GC: G u i s e

Can anyone explain what new blades can be unlocked in libraries? I don't want to checkin, may be there is another option?

None anymore. The 3 loreseeker swords from previous versions can now be unlocked by playing Story and Eternal modes. For this rotation, one new location is the one we can unlock through loreseeker.

Thank you! We're happy you like it! Its supposed to be one of those easy to get the basics, hard to master things.
