tried that but i can't dodge when he strikes so he still kills me. also i can't make a dent in his health meter. i think i got the dodging down how can i strike him. please don't tell me wats in the faq i know i just can't seem to strike him
Wait for him to attack, parry and then swing the numchuck again to damage his sword, you're also going to want to start fighting everyone like that now because swordfights get a lot harder from this point on.
