Travel to Omi Lake

1 Travel to Omi Lake to the old training ground. Afterwards, head to the docks and follow Lord Shimura.
2 Talk to the peasant and help him push the wagon. Follow Lord Shimura to the cemetery.
3 Compose a haiku and prepare to battle Lord Shimura.

Defeat Lord Shimura

1 The fight against Lord Shimura is a pretty standard one. The chance to parry him is when he winds up his sword thrust attacks, which can be either be the one-handed or two-handed one. You will notice that he will back away a bit before throwing it out. Deflect his attacks to accumulate resolve and unload on him with techniques to defeat him.
2 Choose to honor Lord Shimura’s request or not. Selecting the first will grant you the Righteous Punishment armor dye (white) while the last gives you the Vow of Punishment armor dye (red). These are alternate colors for the Ghost Armor Set that you will receive after the credits.
3 Watch the credits.


Defeating Lord Shimura

Lord Shimura can be quite challenging if you still have not gotten used to parrying at this point. Bait out his sword thrust attack and parry it to gain Resolve. Most of his unblockable attacks can be avoided by dodging to the side as with most swordsmen. Wail on him with Dance of Death or Heavenly Strike to quickly reduce his health until he is down.

Lord Shimura’s Request

Choosing to honor Lord Shimura’s request has no major impact on the post-game apart from giving you two separate armor dyes for the Ghost Armor Set. The choices merely affect the last story sequence before the credits roll.

Feel free to choose what you think is right as it will have no consequence later.
