This is a guide for getting gold in edo battle, but it will serve for you who only want to complete the battle, difference are that you can heal more often.

As battle for edo was hardest for me to do, I'll put a couple of helpful tips. I'm not gonna lie to you, it's gonna be hard.

To make things easier you need to complete game and use your completed game char. I recommend using Sasaki Sojiro for one reason mainly, reach. He can hit from further away. Play through main game on easy and make sure you instant kill every boss char. Use only stance III. Maximise health,attack and defense, DO NOT put any points in stamina.

Use stance III and y-y-a and y-y-y-a combos. I cannot remeber names of moves, theres only one you need to pick and it's the last one in stance III, pick fastest (deals 8 damage, costs 1500 or 1600 exp)

When playing through main story, start training y-y-a step combo this is incredibly fast one slash/step, you'll understand what I mean when you can hit'n'run without stopping and y-y-y-a step combo, two slashes, very similar and fast. To make things a bit easier try to rhytm button presses like this y---y-a and y---y--y-a

As I said before. I'll cover only battle of edo as it seemed to be hardest one of them all.

From the start you'll see some fighting to your right, head there and kill two guys. Now turn right and head straight, take next one right and you should see a well, run to the well and check out the area, this is where you will kill boss characters that come every 100.

Now that you are familiar with boss slaying area it's time to start hacking and slashing your way to gold metal. Basic tactic goes like this, run from the well area straight to the end of street killing lone soldiers with y-y-a combo and groups with y-y-y-a combos. At the end of the street, take left and run next to the bridge, killing and moving enemies on the way. At the bridge (never cross the bridge) take left to next intersection and from there turn left, see a pattern here. :D You'll run in a circle for next 32 - 34 minutes doing hit'n'run attacks. Don't stop for too long to kill enemies, just hit'n'run max two combos and keep going. You don't actually need to kill 1000 by yourself, all kills count whoever made them.

Now for every 100 kills there comes a boss char, when this happens hit'n'run your way back to well area, when coming near the well take instant right hugging to well and run next to wall/rope fence, wait here for boss to come close, run half a circle positioning boss between wall and yourself, lock on to her, grap, throw to wall, if fails, grap again, throw to wall ect, until you can do instant kill. If there are other enemies around, run one round and return to well, there's also a chance that boss char dies to other enemies.

Go back to your rounds and keep at it. When you reach 500 kills and slay boss char you should have enough time to heal yourself at the well area. With this tactic you should actually have enough time for ONE full life bar. Start healing immediately after instant kill, as you'r stamina bar recharges while special kill animation is in place.

This is where low staming comes in, in order to heal you need to stand still doing nothing with full stamina.

Now when you reach 850-900 kills you'll notice that enemies are fewer, this is the time to go to bridge and start slaying enemies there, run to the end of bridge and back, repeat.

Of course 1000nd char is stronger version of same boss char, the trick here is to run twice your normal rounds while she follows and then go to well, or instant kill place of your choice.

As for enemies, white clothed guys will counter your slashes, kill them when you're sure that they cannot counter or grap, throw, run next to them and slash.

Black helmet dudes also counter, but very rarely.

There's really not much else I can say to help. Go for it and good luck, It really stings to die to last char in this battle. With this tactic your completion time should be around 33mins and that's enough. 34.24 was min for gold.
