Sekiro guide: The ultimate hub for everything you need to know

You really do need a Sekrio guide. Don't try and pretend you can do this alone. A boss, mechanic or a level will leave you stumped at some point and, while it's a badge of honor for some to struggle through these moments, you'll have way more fun if you have even a vague idea what you're doing. 

This Sekrio guide covers the basics, from Dragon Rot to Prayer Bead, prosthetics, Gourd seeds and plenty more. There's even a full Sekrio walkthrough from start to finish that covers how to get all the endings. So no exploring the wrong area for hours or taking on a boss while missing a vital piece of gear.
