Tips & Tricks

  • Stay together or die alone.


  • Veteran tip: Don’t get surrounded.


  • Pushing enemies is very effective when you are surrounded.


  • Pushing enemies will force them to focus their attention on you.


  • Blocking is more efficient when facing towards enemies. Weapons have tooltips for Block Arcs that indicate their most effective angle.


  • When fatigued, you can’t use Push or Block.


  • Ranged weapons are less effective when hitting enemies far away. Long-distance weapons have less of a penalty.


  • Some of the more powerful ranged weapons can pierce through enemies.


  • Playing on Champion or Legend enables friendly fire. Allies will take damage when you hit them with ranged weapons and explosives.


  • Be careful when casting spells. Overuse the Winds of Magic, and you will become Overcharged and explode!


  • Taking damage while carrying explosive barrels or lamp oil will ignite the fuse.


  • Enemies will be alerted to your presence if you make a lot of noise or come close enough.


  • Top right is an action feed; you can use it to confirm when dangerous enemies are slain.


  • Watch for the shield indication when hitting armored enemies; charged melee attacks penetrate armor.


  • Use heavy weapons or go for the head when facing armored enemies.


  • Most enemies have a weak spot indicated by the orange hit marker; exploit these to more efficiently dispatch your foes.


  • Shielded enemies will block your attacks; try pushing them to create an opening.


  • Some special enemies and bosses use attacks that cover large areas to avoid standing in them.


  • Bosses sometimes use attacks that will deal damage through your block; try to dodge them instead.


  • Beware of your surroundings when fighting bosses; they can knock you back or even grab you.
