Bushido: The Warrior's Way

The Fighter is one of four available classes and specializes in high HP, high defense, and the ability to wear more gear than other classes. The following is a work-in-progress guide to being an informed and skilled fighter.

"If you want to be a true Fighter, dont just rely on strength. Cherish your friends." -- Gus

"Marion thinks I'm an idiot who only fights alone. But I know better than anyone the importance of fighting as a team. That is the most important skill as a Fighter." -- Eric Sortante

"Fighters protect friends with their shield and fight against themselves with their swords. Don't forget that your greatest weapon against enemies is not your sword, it's your friends." -- Eric Sortante

IV.) Fighter Strategies

Boss Dancing - When a boss is not lured next to a solid surface, the quickest way to damage it is to use the first two attacks of the F combo in one direction, then immediately begin this same combo in the opposite direction. When mastered, this can allow for the dodging of boss attacks, as well as fast damaging.

Boss Luring - During some boss fights, when your cleric(s) has a critically low amount of MP, and your HP is draining, you will need to retreat. Occasionally, the boss map will be small, or may contain a dangerous mob. In this scenario, use taunt to have the boss target you, but instead of attacking it, just walk or run around a safe distance from the boss. You can even have the boss follow you directly to your cleric, and as long as the cleric does not show aggression to the boss, the boss will not attack the healing cleric. When the cleric is fully healed, resume fighting as normal.

Cyclone Slash Immobility Cancel - To best use Cyclone Slash, use Dash or Charge into a grouping of enemies and then immediately use Cyclone Slash. Chances are, one of the attacks will momentarily stun you, which cancels the immobility time while using Cyclone Slash. After using Cyclone Slash, hold Dash to escape from the mob. Then proceed with normal Fighting.

Dash Holding - The fastest way to do damage to a large group of enemies near a solid surface is to use Battle Cry on them and then hold Dash into the solid surface. Since the area of effect of Dash is so wide, it will hit most, if not all of the monsters, and do very quick damage to them. Using Charge will also be beneficial, right when you have used up all but 20% of your AP.

Genki Combo - A strong skill combination for fighters is to Lob up a group of enemies, then use Air Smack to deal some high damage to them. As they come down, use Cyclone Slash to hurt them more before they hit the ground. As soon as Cyclone Slash is used, hold down the hotkey for Charge, so when the monsters come back down to the ground, you can do additional damage as you escape being hit by monster attacks. Try linking this combo into the Jette Combo for a very damaging combination attack.

Jette Combo - This is the combo that I use when running into a mob to the right of me. Use Charge to hit the entire mob, then do two dashes back to the left. Do a full 3-hit F combo, then two dashes to the right. At this time, Charge will have finished cooling down, so you can repeat this combo facing the other way.

Mob Packing v1.0 - When making the tightest mob possible, use the following technique: gain the aggression of a large group of monsters, and wait until they are just about to surround you, then Dash downwards. This will allow the monsters to group together at your original position, while you take minimal damage. Dash back upwards and immediately use Battle Cry. This will freeze the monsters in the tightest-packed mob. Use Dash Spam to hit all of the monsters and throw in a few Charges, or the Jette Combo for maximum damage. Be weary of the Battle Cry glitches, however.

Mob Packing v2.0 - Another way to get a very tightly packed mob of monsters that are approaching you from either side (on a horizontal plane) is to Lob up the first few monsters to give the trailing monsters time to catch up in position. Use Air Smack and then immediately use Battle Cry when all the monsters are grouped. This will freeze them in a tight mob. Use combos as mentioned above.

Nependes Cancelling - To avoid all damage from single Nependes-type monsters, just hold F. Their attacks will always miss.

Taunting - Since fighters are the game's tanks, taking damage should not be seen as detrimental to the party's success in Acts. If another Fighter is being beaten up badly by a mob, use Taunt to draw the mobs to you. This will allow the damaged fighter to either continue fighting without taking damage, or Dash back to the waiting Clerics. This skill is necessary to protect Mages that are not comfortable having a large amount of monsters targeting them. Mages can be killed very quickly, and should be protected, because their damage-per-second is highest.

If a Fighter is playing in a party with a so-called "Battle Cleric" or "Fighter Cleric" then make sure to use Taunt right before the Cleric's Miracle is about to wear out. After a while, timing should become easy. This will allow the Cleric to avoid the large influx of monster hits if they are still in the mob when Miracle times out.

Two-Hit Combo Walking - When facing a group of monsters with no AP, the fastest way to damage them and regenerate AP is to repeatedly use the first two hits of the F combo over and over until the desired AP is reached. Personally, I will use the two-hit combo, a Dash, then the full F combo on a large mob.


Specific Boss Strategies

Young Fox Boss Strategy - There shouldnt be any trouble killing the Young Fox, boss of Episode 1 Act 1, as a Fighter.

Orb Boss Strategy - There shouldnt be any trouble killing the Orb, boss of Episode 1 Acts 2 and 3, as a Fighter.

Fuming Cho Boss Strategy - There shouldnt be any trouble killing the Fuming Cho, boss of Episode 1 Act 4, as a Fighter. Heal if necessary. Use Boss Luring if necessary.

Fuming Chobi Boss Strategy - There shouldnt be any trouble killing the Fuming Chobi, boss of Episode 1 Acts 5 and 6, as a Fighter. Heal if necessary. Use Boss Luring if necessary.

Super Cho Cho Boss Strategy - Although fighting the Super Cho Cho, the boss of Episode 1 Act 7, as a Fighter is not difficult, there are a few good strategies to know. First, you can do a full F combo and then as soon as the Super Cho Cho jumps into the air, jump along with it. You will avoid damage. A faster way of damaging the Super Cho Cho exists - use a full F combo, then two additional hits as a two-hit combo, then Dash upwards. The Super Cho Cho does not have very much of a vertical area of effect.

Charming Nependes Boss Strategy - The Charming Nependes, the boss of Episode 1 Act 8, will spawn a large group of monsters at certain points in its HP. Just focus your attacks on the Charming Nependes, it's attack power is strong, much stronger than several hits by its minions. You will hit the minions with your attacks when you Dash to avoid the Charming Nependes' attacks. Use full F combos, or Two-Hit Combo Walking.

Prince of the Seas Boss Strategy - When fighting the Prince of the Seas, boss of Episode 1 Acts 9 and 10, you should time your attacks by first taking a hit of damage from the boss. As soon as you have been hit, do a single F attack, then Dash to the opposite side. The boss will have attacked to your previous position as you dashed, so you wont be hit by it. Repeat this process, and recalibrate your timing as needed. It is possible to take no damage during this fight.

Raccoon Soldier Boss Strategy - The Raccoon Soldier, the boss of Episode 1 Act 11, has an attack that can launch players back a long distance, and the chance of position lagging is very high. To avoid this, you can lure the Raccoon Soldier to one of the walls and hold F with the clerics healing as needed.

There does exist a difficult strategy that minimizes damage, however. If you time it right, you can use one hit of the F combo then an immediate Dash to the opposite side of the Raccoon Soldier as he attacks. Then, repeat this until the Raccoon is defeated or your timing becomes off. It is possible to take no damage during this fight.

Satiros Boss Strategy - Satiros, the boss of Episode 1 Acts 12 and 13, has a fast attack, but it can be cancelled out with a Dash, like many other bosses with similar attacks. To achieve this, get hit one time with the attack, and then immediately begin a two-hit combo, and then Dash to the other side. The timing here is difficult to master. Satiros will attack while you are dashing, and you will not be hit. Repeat this until the boss is defeated. It is possible to take no damage during this fight.

Re: Bushido: The Warrior's Way

Post by Jette on Mon Mar 16, 2009 11:11 pm

Halfmoon Boss Strategy - Halfmoon, the boss of Episode 1 Act 14 boss, has very strong attacks, some of which have knockdown potential. However, one of his attacks, the Fireball, has a long charging time. If you make Halfmoon use this attack, then dash to the opposite side. No matter where he is on the map, he will use Fireball facing in the opposite direction. Repeat this strategy until he is defeated.

Broken-Hearted Soldier Boss Strategy - The Broken-Hearted Soldier, boss of Episode 1 Act 15, has an attack that can hit all players in the plane of attack. The horizontal area of effect is very long, but the vertical attack range is almost non-existant. To use this to your advantage, attack the Broken-Hearted Soldier until he is about to attack, and Dash downwards or upwards, depending on which is more convenient. Repeat this until the boss is defeated. This technique is not difficult. It is possible to take no damage during this fight.

Scout Boss Strategy - Scout, the boss of Episode 1 Acts 16 and 17, has an attack that can launch players back a far distance, and there is danger for position lagging causing double-hits. To protect yourself from this, lure Scout to the right of the Tree directly to the left of his original position. Have your back facing the right side of the tree, and lure Scout into range for Crash. Fighters should use Taunt to keep aggression on them, as other classes can gain his aggression easily by attacking and healing. Most hits from his sword do between 1-15 damage, but occasionally he can do up to 160 or so.


Also, if you do not have access to the Crash skill, you can lure Scout to the middle of the tree, and use Dash Holding to do fast damage to him. Mix a Charge in there as well, for added damage. Crash will not be able to hit him in this position.

Super Ghost Cho Cho Boss Strategy - The Super Ghost Cho Cho, boss of Episode 1 Act 18, can be defeated by using exactly the same method as the Super Cho Cho Boss Strategy listed above. However, at this time, you should have the ability to use Charge. Use Charge right before the Super Ghost Cho Cho jumps into the air. You will move out of its range. Come back to the center of the boss and do a full F combo, then Charge again. Repeat. It is possible to take no damage during this fight.


Marquee Boss Strategy - Marquee, miniboss of Episode 1 Acts 19-21, is the weakest of the minibosses in Episode 1 Act 19. Some of her attacks can be avoided by Boss Dancing, so this is the ideal strategy to defeat her each time she is faced in the Act.

Resi Boss Strategy - Resi, miniboss of Episode 1 Acts 19-21, unlike Broken-Hearted Soldier and Angela, can not hit players on opposite sides of her on her horizontal attack plane. There is a very easy strategy to defeating her without taking damage. As soon as she commits to an attack, Dash or Charge to the opposite side and begin attacking with the F combo. Then when she turns around, repeat this technique. It is possible to not take damage during this fight.

Sekra Boss Strategy - Sekra, miniboss of Episode 1 Acts 19-21, is identical to Resi, miniboss in the same Acts. Use the Resi Boss Strategy to defeat Sekra, as listed above. It is possible to take no damage during this fight.

Dreishi Boss Strategy - Dreishi, miniboss of Episode 1 Acts 19-21, is a very strong enemy with quick attacks that almost always knock down players. There is no way of defeating her without taking damage, so to minimize damage, lure her onto the stairs near the portal and use the Boss Dancing technique and Dash Holding. If Fighters attack simultaneously from different sides of her, it will reduce damage taken by the party while maximizing damage taken by Dreishi.

Shakia Boss Strategy - When fighting Shakia, the final boss of Episode 1 Acts 19-21, there is a way to keep her stationary, so she does not use her dangerous teleportation ---> Fireball/ Lightning combo attack. Make sure that you maintain her aggression, and make her repeatedly use fireball over and over, facing the same direction. If she uses her dagger attack, then it has been found she may to any of her attacks after, so remain close to her.

Another variation of this technique is to keep her on the throne. To do this, make sure to clear all of her mobs first, including those closest to her. It may take some practice in luring those closest to her away, but if you can memorize the spot on the map that will draw their aggression, it will be of benefit. Now, when all are defeated, run up the stairs to face her head-on. She will begin to use lightning, but do not move from the left of her. She will immediately change attacks to Fireball. Dash, Charge, or walk to the other side and continue attacking her for the duration of her Fireball attack. Then Dash or walk back to the left side of her. She will use fireball again. Continue this process until she is defeated.

Finally, if you are about to be hit by Fireball or Lightning, either hold Dash downwards or upwards, or jump. Jumping avoids most of the attack, as does Dashing away.

Angela Boss Strategy - Angela, the boss of Episode 1 Act 22, is very dangerous because her attack has a very wide horizontal area of effect. But, like the Broken-Hearted Soldier of Episode 1 Act 15, her attack has nearly no vertical range. So, to properly use this to your advantage, attack her until right before she launches her attack, then Dash downwards or upwards, depending on which direction is easiest for you. Then move back to her plane of attack and continue. It is possible to defeat her without taking damage.

A different strategy involves leaving a single monster alive near her. She has a healing spell, which heals all monsters in range. She will concentrate on healing this monster even while you attack her. If the monster moves out of range or is killed, utilize the above technique for best results and an easy kill.


Bahn Boss Strategy - Bahn, miniboss of Episode 2 Acts 1 and 2, can be defeated by using the Halfmoon Boss Strategy explained above. Bahn's attacks are very strong and very fast. Heal accordingly.

Yggdrasil Boss Strategy - Yggdrasil, boss of Episode 2 Act 1, has a very high amount of HP, and the trade-off between time-of-defeat and trying to take little damage is high. Make sure to kill all of the monsters before targeting Yggdrasil. It is best to Boss Dance on him, and use Crash whenever possible. Have a group of clerics to the right on him, out of his range that will heal the entire party of Fighters at once when needed. This will conserve MP.

If the Clerics are low on MP, and the party still wants to attack Yggdrasil, it is possible to avoid his attacks, because they are very slow and have a short vertical area of effect. Lure Yggdrasil to the center of its boss map and use the F combo on him, until he is just about to launch his attack. Do two Dashes downward. Then Dash back up and continue attacking him. It is possible to take no damage during this fight.

Sakurai Boss Strategy - Sakurai, boss of Episode 2 Act 2 has the second most HP in the game thusfar, and will take a long time to defeat. To minimize damage taken, you can lure him to a wall on the top left of the map, or the bottom right. With the wall between the Fighters and Sakurai, just hold F or use Boss Dancing. Mages should use only Lighting, from a distance far enough away that they will not be hit by its attacks, but their Lightning skill will still hit Sakurai. Make sure to keep Sakurai's aggression on the Fighters.

Rolling Rock Boss Strategy - Rolling Rock, the boss of Episode 3 Act 1 and 2, also has a very wide horizontal attack range, but next to none in the vertical direction. If your timing is right, you can Dash downwards and avoid his attack, then move back up, use one F attack and then Dash back down. It is possible to defeat Rolling Rock without taking damage, although it's quite difficult and time-consuming.

Due to the fact that Rolling Rock's attack does not focus on just one party member, you should probably lure it to the left of the boss map. Obtain it's aggression, then walk down under it about one character height, and slowly walk over to the left side of the map. Rolling Rock will roll after you. After he is in position, clear the right side of the map. The right side of the map will become the new "safe zone."

Note that Rolling Rock, like many other bosses, is in later Acts, found as a normal monster. To properly fight them (they appear in groups after all), make sure to have all Fighters use Battle Cry. Rolling Rock's attack will be nearly impossible to avoid, due to the fact there will be more than one of them, so the Rolling Rock boss strategy will not be effective. If Battle Cry fails, Lob the Rolling Rocks upwards repeatedly until they are dead. Dashing away from them may be the best alternative. Don't wait until your health is low. If the fight against them will be too difficult, retreat quickly.

Ketus Boss Strategy - Ketus, the boss of Episode 3 Acts 3 and 4 has a very slow attack when players are close to him. He will show what way he will attack, and then about 1.5 seconds later, launch the attack. Dash or Charge to the opposite side of him to avoid this attack. Make it a point to first defeat all of the Rolling Rocks that surround him. It is possible to defeat him without taking any damage, and it is not difficult.

Harpy Boss Strategy - Harpy, the boss of Episode 3 Acts 5 and 6, at a seemingly random amount of HP under 50%, will begin to use an attack that can hit twice and knock players down on the second hit. To best combat this, wait until you are hit with the first part of that attack, then Dash downwards. Walk back up and use the first two attacks in your F combo, then dash down. If you get your timing correctly, you will not be hit by any of the attacks. This is not an easy technique.

Meximus Boss Strategy - Meximus, boss of Episode 3 Acts 7 and 8, is plagued with bad position lag, much like all bosses with an attack that launches players back a long distance, such as Fuming Cho, Fuming Chobi, and Scout. This attack is very weak, and hurts up to about 15 or so, and as little as 1. To best use this to your advantage, lure Meximus to either side of the map, and make it so there is just enough distance between Meximus and the party members with their backs to the wall to use Crash, accurately. If Meximus uses his Cyclone Slash attack, you may need to reposition him. With practice, this technique will become second nature. Clerics should not heal unless completely necessary, as this may cause Meximus to move from the ideal spot, so he can use his strong two-hit Cyclone Slash.

Edan Decoy Boss Strategy - Since Edan Decoy, boss of Episode 3 Acts 9 and 10, has a high percentage change of knocking players down, it is best to lure him to a wall, put your back to the wall and hold F. Use Crash for maximum damage. Use Boss Luring when necessary, Edan Decoy is a diffcult boss.

Immortal Soldier Boss Strategy - Immortal Soldier, miniboss of Episode 3 Acts 9 and 10, has a great deal of HP, definately the most in the game thusfar, and he also has an attack that can knock players down. Lure him to a wall, put your back to the wall, and hold F. Boss Dancing is also a good technique to use on him. Use Charge towards the wall, and make sure to use Crash as soon as you can. Immortal Soldier is currently bugged. He cannot take damage. He has only been defeated once, by a team of [GS]Jette, Patrick, and Jennalyn.

Cururu Boss Strategy - Since Cururu, boss of Episode 3 Acts 11 and 12, has a high percentage change of knocking players down, it is best to lure her to a wall, put your back to the wall and attack like that. Use Crash for maximum damage.

Maigus Boss Strategy - Maigus, boss of Episode 3 acts 13 and 14, does not have a strong attack. Just fight her as a normal enemy. It is unlikely you will need to heal more than once or twice.

Joker Jr. Boss Strategy - There is no known strategy for Joker Jr., the boss of Episode 1 Act 10 [Closed BETA Act]. It is no longer possible to obtain the Pi for this act, which is called Sweet Nightmare. Only 10 are known to exist. This boss has never been defeated without [GM] assistance.


V.) Bugs/Glitches That Directly Affect Fighters

Amethyst Set Gear Glitch - For all Fighters over level 45, it was possible to achieve infinite HP and Melee Attack. Equipping two gears of the Amethyst Set, and then repeatedly right clicking on a duplicate of one of these in your Equip Bag would increase your STR by +19 STR every click. Similarly, equipping four gears of the Amethyst Set and then repeatedly right clicking on a duplicate of one of these would increase your CON by +19 CON every click. This glitch has been fixed.

Bastard Sword Bug v1.0 - From the early days of Open BETA until the time near the Halloween Patch, the level 35 sword had an attack rating of 221-275. This was brought down to 97-170, and then again to 80-140 in two separate patches. The current Attack Rating of the level 35 sword is 80-140. This bug has been fixed.

Bastard Sword Bug v2.0 - Since it contained an offensive word, the level 35 Bastard Sword has been recently renamed the Iron Sword. This bug has been fixed.

Battle Cry Pouncing Bug - After Battle Cry wears off, enemies will immediately attack the player that has aggression. They can teleport far distances to do this as well. This often instantly kills unsuspecting Clerics and Mages. This bug has not been fixed.

Battle Cry/Air Smack Bug - If a Fighter Lobs up a group of monsters, and a Fighter uses a successful Battle Cry, the Fighter who Lobbed up the monsters will not be able to affect the lobbed monsters with Air Smack, despite the fact they are in the air. This bug has not been fixed.

Blood Slash Bug - If a monster is killed by the additional damage done by Blood Slash, players in the party will not get any experience for the kill, as well as the defeated monter will not drop any items. This is especially dangerous on bosses. This bug has not been fixed.

Charge Bug - Originally, the Fighter skill Charge had a maximum of 7 levels. The skill level appeared as (1/7) for several weeks after the launch of Open BETA. This bug has been fixed.

Post by Jette on Mon Mar 16, 2009 11:12 pm

Cloth Shield Glitch - From the early days in Open BETA to the time around the Christmas Patch, players could buy a cloth shield called the Blessed Bronze Shield from Gus. This could be equipped by Fighters, Clerics, and Adventurers. This glitch has been fixed.

Concentration Bug - Using the Fighter skill Concentration also increases Crash skill damage by 50%. The description says it only increases Cyclone Slash skill damage by 50%, though. This bug has not been fixed.

Cyclone Slash Glitch - During the early days of Open BETA, the Fighter skill Cyclone Slash would do splash damage on all monsters it hit. It would either do 5-8 damage per hit, or it would kill the entire mob in one hit, doing upwards of 5,000 HP of damage. Using Cyclone Slash on a boss with a large mob near it would kill the boss in one hit. Damage must have been over 100,000 HP at times. A screenshot exists of Jette doing over 930,000 HP of damage to a single enemy in Episode 1 Act 22 (At the time, this was Episode 1 Act 20). The damage is unofficially the strongest single hit in Pi Story history. This bug has been fixed.

Defense Aura Bug - Back in the early days of Open BETA, the Fighter skill Defense Aura although having named percent increases in defense, would only increase defense by 1-7% instead of 10-30%. The skill's description has been changed. This bug has been fixed.

Falchion Bug - During the very early days of Open BETA, the level 20 Falchion (both the green and blue versions) would increase defense by 222. This allowed for easy soloing of Acts, and was exploited in secret by many Fighters. This glitch has been fixed. Also, Level 19 Chainmail Pants would show an increase in defense by 222, but when equipped, would not increase defense by that amount. This bug has been fixed.

Fighter Defense Glitch - The most crippling error that Fighters face is the Fighter Defense Glitch. This glitch causes Fighters to take more damage than they should, related to their defense. For example, a Fighter with 200 Defense will not take half the damage from an enemy attack that a mage or cleric with 100 Defense will. The relationship between the defense statistic and damage taken from enemy hits is not proportional. This glitch has not been fixed.


Finish Guard Bug - Back in the early days of Open BETA, the Fighter skill Finish Guard would have no effect, whatsoever. It would not increase defense by any percentage, although named percent increases were given in the skill description. This bug has been fixed.

Finish Guard Glitch v1.0 - The Fighter skill Finish Guard, after the original patch to fix it, experienced another error. Upon use, a player would be sent back to town either instantly or in the next map. This glitch has been fixed.

Finish Guard Glitch v2.0 - Finish Guard has yet another glitch attached to its name. In a party, if a cleric uses Holy Strength and a Fighter then uses Finish Guard, independent of the percentage HP the Fighter has at the moment, the Fighter will be immune to damage from enemy hits. Upon each hit, maximum HP will be regenerated. This bug has not been fixed. Exploiting it is a bannable offense.

Leather Hat Glitch - Around the time of the Halloween Patch, a glitch arose that affected the Leather Hats. Upon moving of the character, the Hat would not move in concordance with the character. Although the character's head would turn, the Hat would remain stationary, causing an awkward appearence. This bug has been fixed.

Leather Boots Bug - The Leather Boots you can buy from Gus have a description that would be more fitting on a shield. This bug has not been fixed.

Right Click Glitch - Early in the game's history, there was a glitch that allowed Fighters to hold down the F key and spam right click to achieve a faster attack rate. This allowed for easier killing of mobs and bosses. This bug has been fixed.

Hope you don't mind Jette, my own addition...

Super Cho Cho Strategy - I find an effective way to deal damage is to open with a Blood Slash, then jump when it does, followed by a full F combo (i can usually pull off 2 consecutive full F combos before it jumps next). Continue this until it's defeated, using Blood Slash whenever the effect wears off.

Also, though it's an easy fight, i feel you should mention the Poisonous Cloud Jack.

Not that it matters anymore, but I guess I'm not high enough to make the list of notable fighters. Sad

Lol.

Loomy I added you just now because you were to be chosen as the next Pi Story GameSage. You were next in line.

Sadly, you won't get to see your tag.

A lot of work went into this guide and I had a lot more planned, too. Too bad the game was closed. I'm just going to leave the guide as-is as a reminder of what it was like to be a Fighter in Pi Story.

I hope I left a strong legacy behind...
