GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT LEARNING NEW SWORD SKILLS


There are a total of 10 different ways to learn new sword skills.

1. [Experience]
There is a hidden Experience Meter for every sword. For every small
attack accomplished (□) the meter goes up by 1, and for every big
attack accomplished (△) the meter goes up by 8.
Some new sword skills are learned by accumulating a certain amount of
Experience.

2. [Stop]
Some new sword skills are learned when you Stop an enemy's attacks with
certain attacks.

3. [Air]
Some new sword skills are learned by hitting an enemy who's in the Air
with certain attacks.

4. [Ground]
Some new sword skills are learned by hitting an enemy who's down on the
Ground with certain attacks.

5. [Hundred]
Some new sword skills are learned when you perform certain attacks when
your HP is below 100.

6. [Avoid]
Avoid is achieved by tapping the R1 button at the very instant when an
enemy's attack is going to hit you.
If you successfully Avoid a sword skill attack from an enemy which
corresponds to a sword skill on your currently equipped sword, the new
sword skill will be immediately learned.

7. [Recover]
Recover is achieved by pressing either the R1 or the X button at the
instant when you touch the ground after being hit up into the air by an
enemy.
When while you are unsheathing your sword, you get hit into the air by
an enemy, if you successfully Recover, there is a 1/16 chance that a
new sword skill will be learned.

8. [Down]
Some new sword skills are learned when you are Down, and instead of
standing back up, remain Down and keep crawling backwards for about 10
seconds.

9. [Addition]
Some new sword skills are learned as Additions at the same time when
certain sword skills are learned.

10. Pick up 奥義書 "Skill Manual" dropped by enemies, and one new sword
skill selected randomly will be immediately learned.
This item is usually dropped by enemies toward the end of the game.
Because this applies to all the skills for all the swords, I did not
make an attempt to mention them in the individual sword skill list.
