Bushido is the trademark skill of the Samurai of the Tokuno Islands in Ultima Online, although everyone can learn it. A Book of Bushido is needed to do the special moves, as well as having a certain amount of Bushido (battle honor), it therefore directly ties in with the virtue of Honor. Having the Parrying skill allows the warrior to block with the sword itself.

A Samurai with 50 Bushido or above may activate the Perfection system by honoring a target creature. This grants a damage bonus dependant on consecutive hits. At 90 skill, it becomes possible to use Bushido in place of Animal Taming for the purpose of controlling and riding Lesser Hiryus.

Training[edit]

After buying points from NPC Samurai in Zento until reaching 30, use the following moves at the following skill levels for maxium effeciency training:

  • 30 - 60: Cast Confidence.
  • 60 - 75: Cast Counter Attack.
  • 75 - 105: Cast Evasion.
  • 105 - 120: Cast Momentum Strike.
