I am too lazy to use bombs and traps.
And the mobs don't swarm around you? I roll out and by the time the roll animation is done they are already on top of me again, if I don't roll again they surround me which results in death. I find myself constantly rolling because the mobs move at the exact same speed as me. Half the time I am unable to cast Quen. Roll out, cast Quen, get hit while casting Quen. There's no possible way for me to do it faster.
Not to mention some of the mobs tend to pre-swing when they see me coming at them, causing me to sometimes get hit a bunch right when I get into range. If I block that initial attack the other mobs will quickly swarm me during that... then I have to roll again, so I deal no damage.
I think theres something going on here. There are people claiming the game is easy, and others claiming the game is too hard. Perhaps some games are affected by a bug that's causing the AI to be more agressive than intended. Did you import a save from TW1? Perhaps the game is harder when you import? I wonder if thats what they mean by "Fixed imports".
Sounds like we are playing different games. I beat God of War 1/2/3 on the hardest difficulty which required better reaction times than this game, so I don't think it's a skill level problem.Edited by Murlocke - 6/3/11 at 1:11pm
