Ultimate Moves

Kills with skills can unlock Ultimate Attacks, when in doubt just keep killing ad nauseam. Various instructors around the country will give clues about how to unlock Ultimates, their advice will vary between specific, to matching skill descriptions, and pretty vague.
Here is all the ultimate attacks, things with question marks will need to be confirmed and filled in with your help:

  • Aura Gatling = Aura Punch + Mach Punch
  • Super Shadowless Kick = Mach Kick + (Aerial Guillotine)?
  • Green Dragon Crescent Blade = Rapid Slash + ?
  • Demonic Tide = Nut Shot
  • Slash Flurry = Iai Slash
  • Meteorite Special = Hawk Fist + Rocket Kick
  • Dragon Tail Kick = Typhoon Kick + Whirlwind Kick?
  • Blast Crash = Dragon Kick + ?
  • Vacuum Double Chop = Double Chop + ?
  • Absolute Lotus = Iron Mountain + ?
  • Celestial Spiral Fist = Human Drill + ?
  • Blast Shot = Explosive Shot + (Drop Shot)?
  • Big Bang Gazer = Big Bang + ?
  • Hyper Screw = Screw + ?
  • Super Special Offense = Given in chapter 4.



Bosses can drop rare gems (I believe Treasure Finder ups this rate). Use of these gems teaches skills:

  • Violence Gem – Big Bang
  • Marvelous? Gem –
  • Royal Gem –
  • Chaotic Gem –

I didn’t think to write down which did what so the 3 other skills are Charge Punch, Gorgeous Punch and Yamada Style.

Mountains/Ye Castle/Miscellaneous

Mount Taishan – Earthquake Tactics + Bow Kick
Need Earthquake Tactics to drop the scaffolds down into ramps, couldn’t find and easy way to jump onto the scaffolds because of sign so had to Bow Kick up as well. Reward for this effort? A He’s Jade you can sell for 5,000.
Mount Song – Freeze Tactics (but you can cheese it if your quick and use Bow Kick at the last moment)
Timestop at the last set of stones and you can easily reach the top but there is only a Star Knuckle up there which is a weapon that can cause a status that makes enemies drop money over time.
Ye Castle – Chapter 2 + Water Tactics
In chapter 2: flood Ye Castle’s trench with Water Tactics, jump up onto the ramparts. and head right into the castle. Navigate the obstacle course to nab the Achievement and an item needed to complete a sidequest. Ye Castle is also open in further chapters in case you missed it.
Nanpi Castle – Chapter 2 Sidequest
Suppose I should put this here as well since there is an achievement, in Chapter 2 you can accept the sidequest Nanpi Castle Inspection from the Notice Board in Pingyuan. Is open in Chapter 3 as well if you missed it.

Unique Gear

Every difficulty besides moderate has the chance to drop items with skill modifiers. Furthermore enemies can drop unique loot, Treasure Finder greatly increases drop rate and the skill modifier Discerning Eye increases it further (only seen this on helmets so far). Higher difficulties drop improved versions of these items. [Higher Tier Quality Name]
