Fucking Christ, how do I GIT GUD at the combat in this game? I'm getting my ass handed to me
about 70% of the combat is using both dodges the game provides for you at the right moment. Like a surprisingly functional combination of Asscreed and Souls.
Re-spec an actually good build if you haven't already.
Actually drink your potions during fights.
Look at bestiary and see what bombs are good vs what you're fighting.
alt-dodge > space-dodge
This is what I've been trying to do. Is there really no other way to play combat without getting demolished? This super defensive shit is a letdown.
I'm cool with skilled dodging (I love Viewtiful Joe) but when it's time to attack I feel like I have no other option other than to use quen.
Does Yrden even do anything? It doesn't trap shit.
I don't remember having these issues in Witcher 2
I feel like they really nerfed Yrden in witcher 3
In 2 it was just a straight stun, no questions asked, that usually even worked on boss characters
Now it's just a shitty slow, they even made it mandatory to use vs ghosts so you'd be forced to use it every so often
stop saying this
Invest points into Igni, faggot. You'll breeze through the game. Igni has a burning effect that makes 98% of enemies stop fighting and writhe around in agony. In addition to humans, it works on nearly every monster, including draconids.
Are you playing deathmarch? The beginning is the hardest, as you level up and progress i you will gain abilities that completely trivialize all enemies. I suggest Quen+Axii+Fast Attack build if you're shit at dodging. Otherwise go full Sword dps if you can dodge and spam away.
