Sorry for so many questions, but I want to make sure I actually get in this in the right way.
I've been seeing if I could put all the stat points so it was a GK 10:1 ratio - and I actually started to realize how difficult this is going to be, since the GK kills me with one strike.
Anyway, I bought the Rohan's Finn dual, but it has ice attack. I'm asking, what difference does it make, if my GK has rainbow defense? They have rainbow defense since lvl 250, right?
Feel free to ask questions if you need help.
I recommend you to make a training slot and train, especially parrying magic. Don't forget: vertical for center attacks, horizontal - for side attacks.
I didn't know where to ask this, but I was wondering is it feasible for a complete IB noob (myself) to make it to a club like this and how long would it take? Or is this something completely out of reach?
Edit: also, don't get discouraged if you die a lot
GK Club is a skill club and it unites the world greatest IB players. Yes, this means that you can start testing your skills immediately, without waiting for many rebirths or NGs. But you must have these skills first
As tristanzara said, one of these skills is persistence, you'll need it a lot to develop your other skills
Good luck to you!

Well, I've been practicing for a few days and I'd like to hear your opinion.
The number of times I get hit is eventually decreasing. According to my maths I was hit 22 times the last time I played. And this is in around 20-24 minutes. This still doesn't sound as an okay value to me, but it's getting better anyway =)
Sometimes I don't parry the magic, either because of a bug - and the game register as scratch - or because I don't actually parry it. I pure cracked one of the GK's combos already, but there's another one I need to crack as well. Although I never get hit when the GK uses his shield twice
Last few times I've faced the GK, I've pure cracked him. I am NOT at a 5:1 ratio, and won't be trying til I get to 2K, but it does show it can be done. Keep at it, you'll get there.
1. Keep trying. Skills are slow to train. Don't try to make a big progress overnight. Step by step. Your spine brain needs time, breaks and a good sleep.
2. Don't force all the trainings to be made out of exam trials (GKR5).
About the training itself, in 3 gameplays or so I reduced the nr. of hits by 7 (15 times). And most of them were in the first part of the duel. This is a really tough challenge, but it's really cool to try the maximum level of Infinity Blade.
And, =Silver=, I'm playing at GKR10, not 5.

In my 20-24 minute gameplay my record is eleven times, so I think this is starting to get closer
Also, I was a real fool and spent about $400k till I got the combination I wanted (Thark Armor, Maximus, Sinkhood, Shadow, any ring w/o SP). Don't add any points, giving you a total of 95 SP

Just one more thing: does it make a difference if I play the battle in v1.2 or v1.1.1 instead? I just hate magic -.-
Got it, maybe you call more combos as "stepback".
Actually, there are only limited number of combos called stepbacks.
GK has just three definite stepbacks (they are all described in Dual Guide). Stepbacks maybe performed only 3 times per fight phase (don't know why, unlike IB1), it's an integrated whole and a hard set of attack moves, if you interrupt one of these moves (e.g. parry any move) it interrupts the whole set.
The 360 stepback is almost impossible for me, so I use Super or Magic to break it. The best I did so far was 5 times hit with no damage on first battle phase.
EDIT: This is great! If I wasn't on GKR10 I was pretty much ready to enter the club.
Great, now I can't restore my NG account -,-
All files are here, but lost all the progress so far :'(
Restoring my NG+ game!
The iCloud just messed up my phone. Luckily I was able to use another one - w/o iCloud BTW. It worked there.
Now I'm putting the files in order so I can play again! I'm installing v1.1 already and training for the GK Club.
Thanks for everyone who got through this with me
Alright. Today I saw that I am at GK 5,550 right now, the same one NiiLoc won on.
I have 1110 stats to allocate. I counted all points, even dodge points on thank armor. But Titan break gem +2 doesn't count for stats right?
Then I tried it out on a normal Titan. I realize that the GK combos are much harder than this, and he has much more health, but this club seems a lot more in reach now...
glad to hear you are back in the GK hunt! go wreck that guy and score GK club ID #9! That would be pretty cool if you defeated the same GK level as I to get into the club
