Monk - minimum viable shikudo, for bashing

I've already been told that it's ideal to visit the Grandmaster with lessons in hand to immediately Trans Shikudo. I'm curious, however, because I noticed that I learned the basic skills for bashing very early in Tekura, if Shikudo is the same way. What's the minimum viable skill set for effectively bashing with Shikudo? Do I really need to learn all of it if all I'm doing right now is smashing denizens all day?


  • Since damage scales off of lessons learned, you'll want to learn to about Mythical which is roughly where you stop getting more damage (or very tiny increments, if anything).

  • To bash with Shikudo you need to learn, at bare minimum up to Risingkick.  That covers your first stance Tykonos (one must be in a stance to use combos), your Kata, and your base skills needed to use KILL to bash.  You'll also learn Gripping, and Shatter for shields, in the process.
