Im the worst at The Witcher 2 - Page 4

post #31 of 39
Its not too hard in witcher 2. Use E to parry attacks followed by quick then strong attacks to engage an enemy.

Get the Parry skill so you can parry %360 and then get the counter attack sword skill. You can parry multiple enemies and follow up quick kills with the counter attack ability.

Because you can quickly switch targets just by moving the mouse you can quickly engage, parry, and counter attack multiple enemies.

When you need to dodge just becareful that you don't get hit in the back, you take double damage untill you get the ability to negate backstab damage.

Thanks a lot for the info guys. I'm going to give this game a try once I get home. Also sitting on steam: Batman AA ($7.50 can't beat that) and Two Towers 2. Will play them after The witcher 2 (not if Elder Scrolls comes out before LOL)

I'm stuck on the fight with Letho...Dude is a major pain in the ass...What sucks is I forgot to craft the items I got from the Kayren into an awesome piece of armor, so I'm stuck with some crappy armor in a fight against another Witcher .

  1. Whenever he uses quen (the lightning sheild) just run around and dodge his bombs and igni until his quen is gone.
  2. Then use aard, strong-strike x3, aard, strong-strike x3 (continue this pattern until you run out of vigor)
  3. Then run around until you have full vigor again, don't attack him unless you open up with aard first otherwise he will just parry you and instantly counter-attack.
  4. Repeat until dead

Alternatively, you could just quen instead of aard but if you're good at dodging and reading when he's going to attack you, you should never get hit. Aard knocks him off balance long enough for you to get 3 strikes in, so if you have 3-4 vigor (depending on talent build) you can chain up to 12 strong strikes without him being able to do anything. Tha'ts why aard is better than quen, you can lock him down so he can't even attack you, and aard even does decent damage by itself.

On the last letho fight at the end of the game, using a sign build (ie, the mage build) i had so mich vigor and vigor regen, i killed him by chaining aard into 3 strikes and he didn't even get to move once

Thanks for all the tips guys, it seems quen mixed with some skilled fighting is the way to go.

I find im not using aard, but instead letting the enemy strike my guard and then attack them.

Also it says I leveled up, is there anything to assign? Or are the benefits static?

Blocking drains vigor, only stuns them long enough for 1-2 strikes, and it doesn't do any upfront damage.

Aard uses vigor (about twice as much as a single block), stuns the opponent for 3 strikes (usually) and it does decent upfront damage.

So aard is definitely stronger.

I really like the idea of this game, but find it rather annoying in practice. All this aard business, and then evading ie. rolling around on the ground and running like a little girl as a gigantic man in a gigantic armor suit chases me. Fun.

Which nvidia drivers are you guys using? I'm playing everything Ultra high, but the game looks kinda like in slow motion. I should be able to run this game with no problems, right? I was using 275.27
