What upgrades do you recommend getting first? I bought the dash shield and it's not what I was expecting. Then I made the mistake of upgrading the shotgun but the range is lacking. I now see I should have probably gotten more of the sword upgrades instead. What do you all recommend?
The shield dash is weird. I'm still unsure what the conditions are under which it activates. I think it's the most unreliable upgrade in the game.
I thought I would dash through attacks, but you have to time it similarly to the sword deflection skill.
Yeah, I think that's the best way of explaining it. If you go too early you still get hit by the bullets, so you have to dash into the projectile(s) at just the right time to get the shield around the character. Felt a bit weird at first but I got used to it pretty quickly. Chain dashing, on the other hand, continues to baffle me. I just can't get the timing down.
