Feeling overwhelmed when suddenly surrounded by a large number of previously easy opponents? It is probably because you should be using the Group style of fighting. It is much more efficient (and fun to watch, Geralt can be a human blender). To switch to Group style use the C-key or click on the Group style icon. You see that things proceed much more smoothly.
Examples of monsters Edit
- Drowned dead
- Vodyanoi warriors, (targeting the priest first, who may keep healing them).
- Wyverns, generally once Geralt achieves a character level greater than 20, possibly sooner.
- Zeugl tentacles, (against the Zeugl itself Strong style is most effective).
Generally group style is effective against any group (fast or strong) larger than or equal to two enemies. Geralt does large amounts of extra damage (which is not displayed as floating numbers) when there are at least two enemies. Some times, this works on a group of only two enemies as well.
Listen for the steel on steel/stone (as opposed to the steel on flesh) type of noise that is made when Geralt hits his enemies, which signifies the extra hidden damage was applied.
