I'm currently trying to do "Wandering In The Dark" (NG+) on "Death March!" difficulty. I am up to the part where Keira needs to shut the portals, and I have to face Hounds of The Wild Hunt.
I am struggling to even get past the first portal, and the most hounds I have killed at once is one.
I am currently level 37 and equipped with 4 Enhanced Swallow potions, 3 Full moon, 1 Tawny Owl and only got 3 Viziman Champion for food and drink. I also have a few bombs.
I've tried to stay close to Keira as much as possible and parry incoming attacks and use Igni as crowd control. It goes alright for a bit, but once the hounds get so low they start to regenerate health so I try to be a bit more aggressive and finish them off asap. Then after I get the first one, another one comes and by then I have ran out of all my potions and it just kills me.
Is there something else I should try? Is there a way for me to get out of the quest and go do other quests in the mean time, or should I go back to my original playthrough, level up my character a bit more, get better gear and start NG+ again?
