    Dont use Parry with Bushido

    it negates your block chance

    and for me lightning strike to 120 worked

    but it took a while!

    It negates your block chance with a shield, but allows you to parry without a shield. So if you are going to use a shield and bushido, then yes the parry is useless, but if going to use 2 handed or 1 handed weapon without a shield then the parry is very useful.

    As for gaining skill, it is difficulty based so will gain faster if using something little more challenging. Momentum strike is a higher level than lightning strike so should help you gain faster. The problem being that it requires fighting 2 targets instead of 1.

    You can GM bushi in a day by doing lightning strike on something over and over. Just get some LMC and lotsa MR. You shouldn't be having that much trouble gaining in it. If you're trying to gain thru blocking, then yah it could explain the problem.
  5. do you think if i bought 2 horses and momentum striked it would work? And im going to be using either my Executioners axe or an ornate axe. So i should be pretty good there.

    Use lighnting Strike. Momentum just cost too much mana.

    I gained in my first day with lightning strike from 30 to 80, now im at 97. Its my second char im doing bushido. its the best way.

    best regards

    just go and farm either lizardmen in despise or earth eles in shame and constantly use lightning strike.I went from 111.1 to 115 bushido in 3 days of fighting lizarmen.

    Also keep parry just DON'T use a shield.I hadn't used my samurai in a while and I was helping someone out with their sami and so I dusted off my guy and I haven't put him away since.He is way too much fun to play with.

    btw my template is
    120 swords
    120 parry
    120 tactics
    115 bushido
    115 resist
    90 chiv

    He abolutley rocks in PVM although I do pvp worth a damn I imagine with the right weapona nd suit he can absolutley own in PVP,especially agaisnt the gimpy zerg archers.

    PS I use one handed weapons like the soulseeker or katana so I can chug pots while fighting.

    I use lightning strike and Arctic Ogre Lords. I was work an archer however. Try using LS and fight something like earth eles. Get 3-4 of them on you and use a 2 handed weapon. Use LS, evasion, counter-attack, and confidence. You should gain fairly quickly.
