As you have started slaying Yokai in Nioh 2, the very foremost mini-boss or exceptional boss could be found near the Shrine. The battleground would consist of a number of fallen Revenant and Assistance swords. Though before engaging against Gozuki, during a tutorial the voice would alert and warn you to not engage against the beast. You can simply avoid and ignore the mini-boss bypassing him when he is on patrol.
The other option is to encounter and battle against him. Though you have started the game recently, it would be reasonably difficult and Gozuki might seem OP as his hit will chunk up half of your HP in an instant. So, if you are up to slay the beast and learn advanced game mechanics, then this guide covers it all.
Gozuki Mini-Boss Fight In Nioh 2
Gozuki attack pattern is quite simple as he swings or slams his blade as he approaches. For the starters, you have to keep an eye on your Stamina gauge.
