    Hey everyone,

    To unlock this achievement you need to defeat the first boss of the game Zhang Liang. Imho is one of the toughest in the game, so don't worry, it gets easier after.

    I made this video to help you understand better how to defeat it:


    Aside from the video, some general info that are worth mentioning: you have two main stats, your attributes (wood, metal, water, gold and fire) and your morale.
    Your morale is set to the area you in (in this case it's 10 if you start straight from the resting flag and you have unlocked all of them). Morale determines how much damage you suffer and how much damage you do: higher morale means higher damage. So if you find yourself in a predicament, you can farm a bit some of the mobs outside his area to start the fight with 11 or even 12 morale. You can make the boss drop some of his morale when you deflect his red attacks (in the video it'll drop from 10 to 9). So that means deflecting red attacks is very important!
    Be aware of your ki bar (the one you have in the middle), if you are in the left side of it, you do LESS damage and you can't use your spells in some cases, as well as you may get stunned if it's too far on the side. On the contrary, if it's on the right side, you deal more damage overall, crits included. So try not to spam too many spells, unless you are very sure of your dodge/deflect game.
    Wo shares some similarities with Sekiro, which means it's better to be on the offensive (deflections and counters) rather than dodging a lot (like Elden Ring/Dark Souls).
    Hope this video and those general tips helped you!

    Happy Hunting!

    This achievement unlocks after you beat Zhang Liang boss finishing Chapter 1: The Encounter. For those that did chapter 1 and 2 from the demo that carries over progress, story achievements for chapters 1 and 2 unlock at the same time you beat chapter 3, but sometimes it could become missable as it doesn't unlock chapter 1 and 2 cleared achievements if you continue from the 2nd demo save progress. Also here is how to beat Zhang Liang both forms, was from the first demo in 2022

    meyerparkXAlso Zhang Liang vine arm thats incoming glowing red arm you wait to critical blow is like a practice to teach ppl to sometimes wait abit to counter certain situation.

    TheBigBBNo need to shame people in a solution thread. Besides, you can't very well compare this guy to anything Dark Souls. You pretty much need to get many deflections of critical blows to take this boss down. If you do that, it's not that hard, but if you're trying to play it like a Souls boss, it's going to be near impossible. Nothing before this prepares you for that, because none of the enemies leading up to it are hard to kill with basic attacks.

    To obtain this achievement we must defeat the first boss of the game, Shang Liang in its two phases.
    The first is easy, get close and attack him repeatedly dodging his attacks to fill the red bar and as soon as you complete it use the Y button to execute a powerful attack, you shouldn't have problem. The second phase is a bit more difficult, but the key here is to keep your distance and execute successful parrys to immobilize him and attack him. Once your summon bar is full, your partner will notify you and you will have to press the Y+B buttons and that's it, I hope this video helps you.
