I smash your Boxes.
The second half of this game blows, like really bad.
Did they run out of ideas at this point? No one finds that fun, it's repetitive.
I found it fun, it was actually the better point of the game for me, or, well, at least better than the enormous fetch Quest called Chapter 3.
If we're all talking about strategies here, why isn't anyone talking about the Stillness / Hasten World combo? (although I seen someone mentioned it) It's wrecked everything in the game without effort (with the exception of Rusalka and the fish ba'al).
Unless no one is talking about it because it's cheap. That very well might be the case.
Cuz you can set it up, put it on auto, and then set it down, go do something else, and come back later and the boss is dead. Although that kinda ruined the later chapters in a way...
That's pretty much just the reason, it's cheap, has been figured out, and has been discussed, not much else to go over it, really.
