RtK Melee Spoiler
Here are some tips to help you fight through
all the combat events and prevail:
ATTACK ! Gang up on one adversary at a time. Use the
"Evaluate" skill to assess the strengths and weaknesses of opponents before
mounting an assault and attack one that can be eliminated in a single round,
whenever possible, to prevent retaliation during the next round of combat.
Attack Style to "Conservative" if you want the entire party to survive
all combats. Set it to "Aggressive" only when the threat of retaliation
is over (when each enemy has exhausted its respective turn).
heal potions sparingly in early chapters. Try not to use a
potion to just "top off" your HPs. Wait until the full effect of
the potion will be used before you use it. Enter especially tough
combat events with HP s as high as possible.
waste heal potions to raise points near the end of a chapter.
With each new chapter, all characters' HPs are restored.
fire oil ! A staple to survive close encounters especially
during early character development.
Use Solon, William and/or
James to block adversaries from getting to the magi.
your encumbrance! Be selective. Only grab items that
you intend to use or sell immediately, like potions, resins, fire oil,
enchanted weapons and armor, and jewelry.
good melee skills early
James, in early skill development:
Initiative, Defense, Bladed. When these 3 skills are about 75, start
adding points to Bow. (James will need bow skill and poison to control
the Lich later on.) After James has maxed out those 4 attributes,
pick whatever you like.
Jazhara, in early skill development:
Initiative, Defense, Bladed.
William, in early skill development:
Initiative, Defense, Two-Handed. Nothing else matters :)
Kendaric, in early skill
development: Initiative, Defense, Bladed.
Solon, in early skill development:
Initiative and Two-Handed (or Blunt).
