Whirlwind Slash - Sekiro's best skills

One of the first combat skills you can unlock is "Whirlwind Slash," a whirlwind sword strike that deals damage to enemies.

Pursuing Slash - Sekiro's best skills

The Pursuing Slash is a very high range shot and is usually used in conjunction with a Shuriken as the second one breaks combos and the Slash quickly finishes enemies. A truly crazy combination.

Fang and Blade - Sekiro's best skills

This ability will transform you into real mini-bosses as it will allow you to add a second powerful attack to your Shinobi Ax that penetrates the opponent's defenses and cannot be blocked. This skill is really great for enemies / mini-bosses who want to finish quickly, but not only!

Although it does not turn you into a real ghost, "Kill Presences" will allow you to isolate groups of enemies so as not to attract them all together and is certainly a very useful skill and absolutely to be unlocked.
