Tips and Tricks
Try using multiple NPCs as your companion in combat until you find the one who has the support abilities that best complement your playstyle.
Don't be afraid to save frequently. If you burn through all of your healing potions in a fight that doesn't get you anywhere, it might be best to save scum and reload.
Target enemy archers and spellcasters first. If left unchecked, they can make a routine battle a complete headache.
