How to beat The Ravenger

Block in front of him by holding B. When you see him turn blue and hold his axes up, quickly roll beside him and attack him with a combo. Then, switch to block and repeat. He should not do the three step combo he has, because every time he sees the shield, he should go for his strong attack which will give you time to perform a combo. He may also try and perform an area attack, which you can block and fit a few hits in before blocking again.

How to beat blocking enemies

For enemies who continue to block after every time you break their shield, simply jump behind them and use a normal combo at their back: press A(3). This will send them falling forward. They will start attacking again, but eventually will start blocking. Repeat this as many times as needed.

Shadow creature

Play as any character following the Path Of The Closed Fist. Stand still for awhile and watch your shadow. It will grow tentacles.

Gambling accident

When at the arena, talk to the gambler and play a game. If you manage to win twenty times in a row, he will explode. Also, if you win more than 5,000 silver, he will stop gambling with you and say that you are bad for business.

Ghost

When you are at Tien's Landing and are about to close the dam, there is an orphanage in one of the corners before you enter the quarry. When you get the old caretaker from the tavern to go back and the bury the bones of the children, there will be a ghost in the background as he is speaking. It will be by the back wall. When he finishes speaking, he will disappear. It looks like he is making funny faces and such. REMEMBER: This was done while being a follower of the Open Palm Road.

Easy bounty

When you get to the Imperial City, you will encounter an officer who is offering bounties. Go to the Scholars Garden to find Scholar Kongyu. If you have Sky with you he will ask a question and confuse Kongyu. He then reveals his plight to you. He claims the bounty is unjust. If you decide to help him leave the city, you will see just how much a fool he is.

Damage Shield

There is a very powerful essence gem that will help when ending the game. In the Imperial City, at the Black Leopard school, you can choose to side with one of the two masters, each following a way. You will be confronted by each of them. They will both tell you to kill the opposite. Either way, you will get a gem labeled "Damage Shield". This surrounds you in a shield that reduces damage significantly.

Deal greater damage quickly with any martial style

Use the following trick to increase the damage you deal for a short period of time. Go into focus mode then power up your martial skills with Chi. The focus will make it harder for your opponents to dodge your attacks and the Chi power up will make you deal greater damage.

Upgrades

You can find enhanced weapons when playing as Dawn Star, Silk Fox, or Whirlwind. They appear in chests in their respective levels. For the girls, run down to the fountain in that area and a chest will appear on the far side when you get close enough. Whirlwind's weapon is near a wall. These upgrades significantly increase your deadliness in those scenarios.
