Jack Of Blades And Easy Experience + Good Renown
First of all this is how I beat Jack Of Blades (Yes I know another way) in under 5 minutes. Things you must have: Potions: Loads of will (no need for ressurection or health so sell them to buy the will) Weapons: The lowest I reccomend is master (I used Wellow's Pickhammer and Master Longbow and it was the easiest fight ever)
Each way to beat Jack Of Blades I look at seems to have some vital bits missing.
Here is how the fight goes: 1. Attack Jack Of Blades as fast as you can until you can use the flourish move. Use flourish AS FAST AS YOU CAN or Jack will attack you at least 3 times in a row and you will lose it. 2.
After you use flourish a couple of times Jack will use assasin strike to get away from you, just run and start attacking him wherever he went to.
3. When Jack gets to about a third of his health left he will go to the centre of the chamber and float whilst summoning his minions to attack you. Forgot the minions and focus on Jack. Whip out your bow and start taking chunks out of jack. Sometimes Jack will start attacking you so hide behind one of the four pillars that came up earlier in the fight. 4. DO NOT PUT THE SWORD OF AEONS INTO THE VORTEX I DID THAT THE FIRST TIME I PLAYED THE GAME AND IT WAS POINTLESS BECAUSE IT IS THE BEST SWORD IN THE GAME (To get the sword all you do is kill your sister at the end and wait for the subtitles to go through DO NOT PRESS Y OR YOU WILL BE TAKEN TO YOUR LAST SAVE usually right before you kill Jack)
P.S. The spells you NEED when fighting Jack are: Multi Arrow (Helps) Physical Shield (NEED!!!) and all of the other spells make it slightly easier to beat him.
Easy Experience: Go to any town with guards and use Slow Time and Physical Shield. Take out your bow and attack the guards. You will get loads of experience in a short time but take lots of will potions and some health potions (incase you run out of will (ressurection philes it doesn't work as soon as you run out of health you lose all your money and get kicked out of the town)
Good Renown: Go anywhere where there are enemies I suggest Twinblade's Camp. Once you kill everyone there (APPART FROM THE TRADERS AND FIST FIGHTERS GANG) just sleep in one of the beds a couple of times and the enemies will be back.
Hope this helps people please rate this and good luck to anyone fighting Maze at the moment (it took me nearly an hour to kill him until I used flourish :P)
