Untill I see mihawk with a similar wound (or a wound close to one of his eyes)
I believe he's closing it as a self-handicap-(/)training-method.
Vista was serious, while Mihawk only went full-out on luffy. What i'm trying to saying is vista recognized the power difference before the fight even began.
Whats to say that not hakki CoA nullifies your opponents DF giving them regular bodies and thats what happened.Zoro did not use haki on Daz Bones, in that fight he learned how to cut steel
I kind of like the idea of zoro only opening his eye when his serious, or gets riled up. Reminds me of Kempachi.
People with kings haki usually draw people towards them, while zoro is a loner for the most part. I would love for him to have it though.As for Zoro haki i'm a say he's going to have(awaken) kings haki if he hasn't already my reasoning is a couple for one sinds the start of there adventure many people have mistaken zoro for the captain also Miwhawk said people like you only lower there head for others (a difinition of a king is he will do anything to protect the people not himself)
Am surprised it is the first time someone made a thread like this here. If you go to onemanga (where I first saw something like this), mangahelpers or mangastream they are all over there sites. So good on you dct21 for making this thread. Hope this will inspire others to make more threads like this here on MShare in not just the OP section but the Naruto and Bleach sections too.
Now on back on topic. Zoro (next to Luffy and Robin) is one of the reasons I still read One Piece. Anyway, does Zoro use haki in his attacks well that's hard to tell at the moment, I think when Oda decides to let Zoro explains the types of training he went through with Mihawk or for some particular someone brings up haki (probably Luffy or someone else) then he will probably explain it then.
The scar over his eye he probably got when he took one of Mihawks slashes head on during training. I think he can open it though, Zoro probably just thinks its cooler to walk around will one eye closed.
Did he kill Mihawk? Probably not. Did he defeat Mihawk? That's a tough one. Let's see if he reveals that himself later on.

we really do not need more threads like this i mean it was only started because oh all the debate about zoro. this is a special case and the more general threads are still the better way to go.
but since there was so much debate going on it was a good idea for a thread.
I doubt Zoro used haki. More like I want him to be different to others in that his strength lies with his skill and techniques. In alabasta he heard the "breath" of all things around him, which I reckon is different to CoO. As the name states, CoO requires the user to Observe things, while the "breath" is to be heard. Likewise, if Zoro could hear the "breath" of things, he could cut logia's without requiring to resort to Haki. An interesting thought though, would be if he has found a way to defeat that ghost girl. I mean he was training beside her all that time. You'ld think Mihawk would have taught him how to deal with her type.
As for Zoro defeating Mihawk, I have some doubts. Mihawk hasn't specifically shown that he can use haki, maybe his different, in that he can also hear the "breath" of objects. Which might be why he was named "Worlds greatest Swordsmen" when people like Shanks and WB could match him. I also think he might have the Hawk Zoan DF ability considering his eyes, and his ability to cross from the grand line and south blue with a small boat with nothing to propel it.
Another thing would be have the "dreams" of the crew all changed? I mean people are saying Zoro defeated Mihawk (which I doubt and will talk about further down). If so then what's his mission on the sea? He would have achieved his dream already. Or maybe he had given up on it, since he asked Mihawk to train him. On top of this is Sanji saying his "dream" is seeing the Mermaid princess instead of All Blue. But again, I doubt their dreams have changed. Zoro beating Mihawk, or even having a draw with him will be a no go. I reckon saying his now stronger or as strong as Mihawk is like saying Luffy is stronger than Rayleigh. Doesn't work that way. His eye could be a representation of how strong he has gotten though, maybe to the point where Mihawk couldn't hold back and thus injured him accidentally. Him being able to use both eye would be awesome.
Oh, and Zoro is still a losty, he couldn't even detect where Luffy had gone, so I highly doubt he has CoO.
Lies thats how you get offtopicwe really do not need more threads like this i mean it was only started because oh all the debate about zoro. this is a special case and the more general threads are still the better way to go.
If zoro does attain hakki i think Coa well come first, and getting lost is just in zoro's natureOh, and Zoro is still a losty, he couldn't even detect where Luffy had gone, so I highly doubt he has CoO.
I don't think zoro actually beat Mihawk either or else hes bounty would have went way up, but why did his bounty increase anyways?

Think some of you are over thinking Zoro's eye, just his new feature after the time skip. Which he probably got from training with Mihawk. Zoro is Luffy's Right hand man, he lost his left eye. Sanji is Luffy's left the time skip switched his main eye from right to left. See the little Oda tid bit.
Zoro defeating Mihawk offscreen is retarded, I can't believe this fool on AP Forums had a wall size theory based on it. Like sixxr made fun it on the other thread it's literally just to stupid to happen.
Zoro has haki there is no doubt about that. His Daz fight he learned it/ experienced it, how he explained it is nearly the same from Rayleigh's explanation on CoO and CoA. Since Zoro doesn't know what it is he can only describe it the best way he can from experiencing it. This makes sense why it isn't exactly alike, also it was about 420 chapters ago.
I'm gathering some info waiting for another translation and reading my Viz media volume to make this clearer as well point out on how I think the rest of haki will come about.
Lolz, yeah, I know that mermaid Princess thing was a gag, I was just saying that if Zoro had defeated Mihawk then that means his dream would have changed, and that would mean Sanji's dream would have changed as well. Which they obviously haven't.
I'm still holding back against all this haki thing though. I guess it's more like hope. If haki was everything basically, then it would be too generic. I don't really want to see that. Also, as I mentioned before, for Mihawk to take the title of "Worlds greatest Swordsmen" must mean that there must be some other skill out there more important than Haki. I mean we know Shanks and Mihawk are/were pretty much equal. Shanks wields a sword as well, so what's stopping him from taking that title? Like wise Rayleigh can use a sword, and I've no doubt his stronger than Mihawk. Although you could argue that his been in hiding, he still has a bounty and thus would be entitled to the title as well.
