Default Is this game hard… or what?

I threw grapeshot bombs at him when he was at distance. Unfortunately, I don't remember the fight that well, but I think that bombs not only dealt good damage, but prevented him from casting spells. I was particularly afraid of his Igni.

Aard is good to stun him, then wack him with your sword. Avoid his attacks at all costs.

I addition, igni helps to kill him at range.

Grapeshot bombs stun him, too, as far as I remember. Sorry for being so unsure, but there certainly was a reason why I used those particular bombs. Because either they or their components were rare to come by.

P.S Bad memory really helps when you decide to replay a game, btw, it's as good as new

What's bad is when you can't remember if you played a game or not. I haven't reached that stage yet.

I've managed to beat him with 2 or 3 attempts after I've learned that I can use the right mouse button for strong attacks.

Well, I did it like this:

-I used Quen as a defense. It's good against his fireball attack which is nearly undodgeable.
-I had some bombs crafted that I threw at him.
-I parried his attacks.

In other words, I was mostly on the defensive against him. It'll take a few tries but you'll get there. IMO, this fight is one of the worst parts of The Witcher 2.

The EE definitely makes the game easier though I think it might be more because of the starting equipment I got to keep from the earlier game/bonus material. The Blue Stripes coat is FAR better than anything I've found and, at the end of chapter 2, I haven't found a better steel sword either. The Fate sword was a little better than the one I had but only just a little.

I've been playing on normal difficulty but I just hit a horrible difficulty spike for the Eternal Battle sequence. I don't get to use any spells. I don't get to use any bombs. I don't get to use any potions or oils. I can't even roll in battle. Basically, I'm just a typical fighter. I'm up against three guys in armor plus one of those earth elemental guys with a shield. Oh, and archers and a ring of fire that's very easy to wander into.

This hasn't even been close. All the enemies have no interest in anything but cutting me down. There's no terrain to use. They all seem smart enough not to wander into fire. The only way to win seems to be to dumb it down to Easy which cranks your regeneration so high that you can just flail away at anyone and win.

Regarding Loredo… sheesh. The first time I fight him the game pretty much kills me off before I even get to do anything. On reload (when more assets are in memory) I do better but die. After a few more attempts I get a lucky stun in early and kill him… except he doesn't die. He keeps going through his script and now I can't hurt him because he's already at 0 health! Eventually he kills me. After a couple more tries I defeated him the way I was supposed to and the game moved on.

Honestly, this game still has some pretty hefty bugs even with all those updates. Playing Witcher 3 on release day is probably not a good plan.

You're probably right, but who's going to be able to resist?

I know I'm not.
