Live A Live Remake Best Student to Choose for the Final Chapter
3 Lei Kugo is a balanced melee and ranged fighter, Yun Jou is a strong ranged fighter, and Hong Hakka is a melee tank fighter.
4 Before you start the battle, remove the equipment of your student to finish the training quicker. Only use one ability at a time since it will be transferred to your pupil when he/she levels up.
5 Focus all of your training battles on your chosen disciple only. Training includes three sets of training battles.
6 The first set consists of 4 training battles that will boost Defense. The battle will be on the mountaintop.
7 The second set consists of 4 training battles that will boost Speed. The battle will be in the forest.

6 There is a break between battles so you have time to recover HP or to gain more levels through defeating Tigers at the Bamboo Forest if you want to.

Indomitable Fist Fortress Boss Rush

1 As a general rule, focus on one enemy at a time. Start using “Tiger and Dragon’s Rebuke” every time to weaken strong enemies. Then, use “Wise Fox’s Grace” to hit multiple enemies. Make use of your chosen pupil’s innate abilities to deal damage since they’ve gotten stronger after the training battles with Shifu.
2 Defeat San Xi and Si Xi.
3 Make use of “Tiger and Dragon’s Rebuke” to one enemy at a time. Then, lure them near each other and use “Wise Fox’s Grace” to deplete their remaining HP.

5 Make use of “Tiger and Dragon’s Rebuke” to one enemy at a time. Then, lure them near each other and use “Wise Fox’s Grace” to deplete their remaining HP. If you are struggling to clear at this point, return to the Bamboo Forest and defeat more Tigers.
6 Defeat Don Jia and Xia Jia.
7 Set up Shifu in the middle of the sub-bosses and use “Wise Fox’s Grace“. Skip your Pupil ability turns and let Shifu deal the damage. If you cannot manage this method, make your Pupil deal ranged abilities such as “Chipmunk’s Delight
8 Defeat Bei Jia and Nan Jia.
9 Set up Shifu in the middle of the sub-bosses and use “Wise Fox’s Grace“. Skip your Pupil ability turns and let Shifu deal the damage. Swap roles with your Pupil and let Shifu recover HP using items. Alternatively, make Shifu use “Chipmunk’s Delight“. If you picked Hong Hakka as your pupil, you may not need healing support since Hakka has a high HP pool.
10 Defeat Lin, Shan, and Chan.
11 Prioritize on defeating Chan first (lower left). Command the Pupil to attack together with Shifu using “Chipmunk’s Delight“. If you picked Yun Jou as your pupil, use the same ability as well.
12 Next, eliminate Lin (upper left). Use “Chipmunk’s Delight” again but do not position Shifu and the Pupil next to each other.
13 Lastly, take out Shan. Continue using “Chipmunk’s Delight” and keep at least one tile distance away from Shifu and the Pupil.
14 Defeat Yi Bei Kou.

16 Defeat Odi Wang Lee.
17 Start the battle using “Heavenly Peaks Descent“, an ability that can only be used against the final boss by Shifu. Use “Kingfisher’s Tantrum” + “Serpent’s Strike” (for Lei Kugo), “Tiger and Dragon’s Rebuke” + self-healing (for Yun Jou), or “Tiger and Dragon’s Rebuke” + “Fowl’s Violent Caress/Chipmunk’s Delight” (for Hong Hakka).
18 After defeating the final boss, you’ve cleared the Imperial China chapter of the game.
