Hello All, I am trying to get into running this game but I can't quite get benkei skip. I can manage to clip into the ladder just fine, but it just warps me to the top of it and I stand there. Any reason why this might be happening? I am mashing B fast and as quick soon as I release the stick, but still can't seem to get anywhere. Any help? Also I am currently just using emulator right now so that could be an issue.

Thanks for any replies! 😃

Hello and welcome THE_GOATLOVER, this is a really good explanation video for the benkei skip: If you are still having some trouble with this trick or have any questions about others tricks in this game I suggest you to join the Goemon server: https://discord.gg/UgRCUzB .There are a lot of experienced runners on this discord channel willing to help you.

Thanks man, I was looking around for a discord but couldn't find one! I'll give it another shot. Don't know how I didn't see this video before!

Cheers

Also, since it is a frame perfect trick, it should be much harder on emulator. and I wanna say it's not even possible on US version, only in JP version, but I'm not 100% positive cause I haven't played the US version

I've been able to get it twice! 😃 Really tough, but I think I can get it down with more practice. I tried pause buffering after the the down left input and got it once with that sorta but I went flying too far. Not sure if pause buffering really works. Thanks for the help, but just one last thing, if I end up standing on the ground by the ladder and slashing their I am inputting B too late right?

Yes, if you end up just standing on top of the ladder slashing then your B input was too late! (Or technically could also be too early AND too late I think, if you're mashing and you happen to miss mashing on the required frame, if that makes sense)

And if you go flying too far, it's not actually "too far". its more of "in the wrong direction" you should always fly the same distance really, but if you get angle right then you'll get stuck against that back wall.

Awesome! Thanks for all the help! I've actually gotten it 3 times in a row now! (using a pause buffer) All the information was super useful
