It is possible to backstab the random ninja before you fight Vilehand.
also I want to warn you that there now is another miniboss around here that can be missed (if you progress the story too far). He's waiting at the end of the path with all the monkeys.

Killed Vilehand. Took out the ninja via stealth, and fought Vilehand like the other long shadow dudes.

I can basically repel up to the top, where I fought Genichiro, and I assume theres a main boss there. Where is this mini boss Im missing?

Oh nevermind, I think I found him. Another Lone shadow, this time the Spear-Bearer. Was searching for the great serpent shrine idol, and found him

Took him down, after using a stealth kill for one of his health bars.

Did some more exploring, found an underwater headless because of course there is. Got terror murdered. Will come back to him later likely. Went to the top of the castle, and theres Kuro. And Owl, who of course is alive. He asks me to obey the code and forsake Kuro. Ahhhh this would be that major choice I assume. He seems evil/just wants the dragon blood, so were going to break the iron code and stay loyal!

You can puppet the other guy during the Vilehand fight and make it a joke

That wouldve been amusing.

Owl kicked my ass the first couple times, until I learned his patterns. I got hit by that anti healing grenade more times than Im proud of too. His posture is strong, didnt feel like I was going to deflect enough to bring it up, so I ended up with vitality kills.

Took until try #5, but I got him. Definitely a fun fight, similarish to Genichiro (and in the same place), so that was cool.

It took me a lot more tries than 5 myself.
Owl just sets off my intimidation factor and I kept my distance far more than I should have.
Good job

Went back to the wedding chamber thing and got lifted by a rope man to fountainhead palace. Well that was super cool.

You know whats not cool? The corrupted monk. 3 health bars, and hard as hell. I can almost consistently get to the third phase, but get wrecked every time. On try #8 or so right now.

There is a trick to the 2nd phase (with several degrees of useful results), but I assume you want to figure her out yourself first.

Got her!! Probably took me almost as many tries, if not moreso, than Genichiro. For the second phase, I ended up finding the higher branch that they couldnt reach me on, and she spawned back quickly. That was after running around aimlessly and getting murdered a few times though.

But good lord that third phase. That crazy fast long range sweep, the quick triple twirl in the air, not to mention that fucking centipede puking everywhere to cause terror. And she hits HARD too. Finally killed her, and I really hope thats it for her and I never have to fight her again.

I explore fountainhead a little bit, killing what look like mist nobles. And these very fast warriors. Oh, and I went in the deep water, heard a thunderclap, and got absolutely blasted with lightning. Did it intentionally the second time so I could figure out where its coming from, and saw the dude waaaaay up high. Well, will deal with him later. Got to the next idol, and stopped for now.

That boss likely gave me some of the quickest deaths in memory in this game. Didnt help that I was getting frustrated and couldnt get her thrust tells. Think I may have mikiri countered like, 3 of them in total.

You were super close to finding the trick on that second phase for Corrupted Monk! From that higher branch, you can see through her illusion and get an instant deathblow from jumping down on her. Funny enough, the first Corrupted Monk was a complete wall for me so by the time I got to Fountainhead, her movements were burned into my brain enough that she went down much more easily.

Uhhh make sure you don't defeat the next main boss until you progress Emma and Kuro's dialogue, this is the time to do their sidequest.

Hooooly hell the enfeeblement status is awful. Died a few times to that while wandering around killing nobles and warriors.

I get to the next idol, go exploring some more and WHAT IN THE HELL ANOTHER BULL?! This thing kills me twice, then I figure out to basically stay glued to its ass, get hits in when I can, and dont force anything. Down it goes.

I progress upwards, and wander around, killing lightning dogs/cats, and some other warriors. I make it to the next idol, and find the dude shooting lightning at me from across the map. Suuuuper easy boss fight, I just get in his face and hammer him to death.

I take a spin around the water in that area, get a few of the treasure carps, the huge one makes an appearance again (it destroyed a bridge earlier), and the old woman tells me to get into the palace by way of underwater tunnel. And of COURSE theres another headless. Oh man, and a shichimen warrior too!

Gonna call it for now lol. Progress Emma and Kuros dialogue by warping back and just talking to them both?

Yup. Pay attention to what they say, and remember you can eavesdrop on Kuro from behind one of the walls when he's standing in the incense room which he should be doing now

Thats what I always did
Never got the right timing for the deathblow, but I dont mind since that makes the fight less cheap.

Just had to figure out which way to run as she disappeared. And also not get slashed as I was doing that.

Will play some more tonight hopefully!
