I still feel like im missing something in the witcher. Level4-almost 5 and yet everything still kicks my ass, and this is only on the second level of difficulty. Swapped out my steel for one with bit better specs when I found it, but still. I can understand losing to some much higher ghouls, but like a pack of 4-5 level 6 drowners kicked my ass after like 2 hits and i was almost full health

 

I guess the simplest/obvious explanation is that i suck

Use Quen. And dodge instead of roll. And block a lot (I don't; I rely on dodge and Quen).

 

Packs are more of a pain. I get hit more by a pack of level 1 wild dogs than literally anything else. It takes them forever to break my Quen shield, but still.

If you're talking about that pack of drowners in white orchard by the road and near the water they kicked my butt the first time too.  Once you figure out when to fast and strong attack, and how and when to dodge (double tap a wasd key) combat gets a lot easier.  Mix in some signs and you'll be killing things 5+ levels above you.

 

Packs can be tricky but if you're patient you can usually draw one or two out at a time.

Thanks for the tips, ill give it a shot. It may be that same pack, I was headed in that direction during the baron quest and it was some special location on the map. Also didnt realize you could double tap to dodge, thought you had to use alt, so that should make that easier. I was also tryin to use igni instead of quen most of the time

Someone on Reddit said that it was some law that ill-a-noise passed or some junk.

 

Of course it's Reddit so they could just be talking out of their ass while acting like they are the authority on the subject.

Yeah, from some article I was too lazy to bother citing:

 

The Legislature this year passed a new law that required collection if the online retailer had a link on an Illinois merchant’s website or offered coupons and promotions in Illinois.

 

If you go on Steam's website now and click the Alienware Steam boxes, you get sent to Gamestop's website (with a brick and mortar presence in IL).  Pretty sure that's what put them into the taxable category.  We're not collecting tax from all online retailers -- I bought from Newegg yesterday and wasn't charged.  So I was right: It's because of the shitty overpriced Linux boxes :-x

I never used Dodge until I remapped it to a thumb button on my mouse.  Actually, I didn't know you could double-tap either, I just found using Alt to be cumbersome so I found my own solution.

 

I found amateur armor/weapon repair kit diagrams in the first major town/mini-city you find.  You have to get a permit to enter it, so you'll know it when you get there.

Steam and Sony don't charge sales tax on my purchases, Nintendo does as there is a law in my state regarding this.

I know you all wanna talk about deals, Illinois, life being feudal and the demise of Desura, but can we all take a moment to reflect on Chris Tucker's work in The Fifth Element?

...

Thank you for your time.

The Fifth Element is one of those cultish movies that has a following but I just can't get into it.  I tried to watch it again recently (saw it in theaters way back when) and found it just unwatchable.

I said the same thing about Eraserhead.

I haven't been on the Groupees website in a while. It has a place on my account for unused Steam keys. Is this reliable? Or does it expect me to check when I have used a key? I was looking at giving some keys away, but I would feel bad if they're actually already redeemed.

It relies on your having manually checked off the box used when you grabbed the keys. And anything really old before they did the site re-design is defaulted to unused because those check boxes weren't around then.

 

Short answer is if you haven't been to Groupees since before they added the used check box or you don't trust yourself to have always clicked the used check box at Groupees every time you redeemed a key then those may well already be used.

They want you to check when you've used a key. A lot of people don't do that, from what I gather. It's one of the better inventory managers out of all the bundles, really.

Thanks for the info. Very good to know. I'll probably just post a ton of keys at some point and let people redeem and figure out what they want, if the key is still good.

Basically. With more daylight, titties and filthy, trashy Europeans, but that about describes Witcher.
