-Use defensive maneuvers to win by waiting for your opponents to approach and reveal their weaknesses, striking when they are most vulnerable.
-Slashes, kicks, and impaling maneuvers are your best friends. It is more effective, especially in later fights, to chip down your opponent's health with multiple blows instead of going for a fast kill.
-Jumping attacks make great combo openers, allowing you to inflict heavy damage. However, keep in mind that your character will be exposed for a matter of moments as he soars through the air.
