I'm playing The Witcher 1 (Enhanced Edition, if that makes a difference), and I'm having a ton of trouble with the combat. The trouble started in chapter 1 when fighting
and now I'm in chapter 2 attempting to get through the part where
you speak with the PI and are ambushed around the city when leaving at midnight.
These fights all involve multiple people, and I die incredibly quickly whenever fighting more than one person/enemy at once. I've only been able to make it this far by cheating the system--running far enough away so someone leashes back and I only have to fight one person, things like that. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to properly fight more than one person at a time.
- I'm trying all three styles. Group style does almost no damage to anyone involved, same with fast, and none of the opponents at the moment require the strong style.
- I found a Sword of the Order (only -10% damage) which I'm using in place of the standard Temerian steel sword (-20% damage).
- I do try to mix in my signs, but they don't really have much effect. Aard usually does literally nothing.
Any advice for group combat in TW1 would be greatly appreciated!
