I think I figured out why the TOA was so hard.

In the other games, the focus was more on attack and move, attack and move, attack and move.  Blocking was used, but mostly in a parry standpoint.  

 

In this game the focus seems to be more on blcoking, a lot more.  And the new parry system is not the best.  Its harder to time and leaves you vulnerable afterward.  

 

Since it is a shift in thinking and playing style, people were having a hard time with it.  At lease this is what I thought for long time fans.

 

Just my two cents.

I would like to watch a video of you pass the trials without blocking. That would be an entertaining video to watch.

Haha, thanks. That was entertaining. I have to admit I did not use the air attacks as you did. I remember trying them out and then for some reason completely forgot about them. They really do a lot of damage and they seem to protect you some from attack.

I did about the same as you on the first round, minus the air attacks, but took me longer. The second round is where I used block a ton. The third not so much. I just let the centaur charge me and then I QTed him to death. Then I used my magic to finish off the rest of the guys.

Awesome job!! You get some kudos.

yea its kinda a gamble to use air attacks because it would suck to get turned to stone. but it works great to avoid those leg sweeps they do. But thanks bro. glad you enjoyed.

That was insanely good! I was turtled up pretty much the whole battle. Honestly, I didn't believe you when you said you didn't block at all. Just didn't seem possible Smiley Tongue
Well done, sir.

Thank you mozzie. Lol i undertstand where you are coming from since TOA is the most difficult part of the game. Really appreciate you watched and thanks for the feedback. hopefully more people here on the forums see what strategy can be used to complete it. mix that in with their blocking and TOA will be cake for them.
