[TW] The Witcher 2 1.2 Patch Tomorrow - Page 5

post #41 of 46
Has anyone heard for sure if there going to do a DX11 patch or has that been done already? Everything I read says it looks freakin awesome in DX9 but, i want to see it in DX11 I don't have the game yet just curious. I still have to finish the first one before I even start the second one.

I haven't heard about DX11 for TW2... Although, they did a damn fine job with DX9 and I'd say, I'm more than content.

It just doesn't look impressive and it reminds me of Gothic 4's tedious rolling to dodge opponents.
Parry doesn't work if someone attacks from the side, or you have no vigor. Parrying is a bit crap if I'm honest, and you should only do it if you're going heavily into the sword skills tree, as then it can be used to set up ripostes and use less vigor.

In mass fights, either use AoE from bombs (grapeshot bombs are VERY cheap and can be enhanced with an alchemy talent (2/2 gives 100% extra damage), re-usable traps (beartraps are reusable), or magic.

Learn to use Axii to your advantage; once you have 1 or 2 points in it, your new friend will hold aggro VERY well indeed, leaving you with a much easier fight. The first 6 levels of the game are very, very difficult indeed relative to the rest of the game, but it gets easier. Especially if you focus on Alchemy, although I will admit annoyance at sometimes not being able to use half your abilities because you had no chance to drink a potion.

We need a Crossfire patch on this game to clear up the light issue and fps issue.

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.
It has nothing to do with imports, the game is just hard. You should always make sure to have lots of potions and oils with you, so you can stay buffed when you really need it. Greater sword damage and/or sign intensity along with increased resistances makes all the difference in the world.

Also, The Witcher 2 suffers from severe input lag on some systems, which is the reason why Geralt isn´t always as responsive as we´d like him to be, resulting in a more difficult game.
