  • Easy kills

    Find a trap (for example, spikes, smashing doors, or opening floors). Use your crossbow to zoom in on the other side, and attract any enemies. Beasts and lizard warriors can be easily killed with the trap in between.

  • Defeating Brogar

    Brogar's single strike can deplete your health quickly during the early part of the game. Before fighting him, learn the Counterattack skill from Craig (level 2 in sword). Place a bet with Craig, and challenge him in the arena. During the fight, press [Counterattack] repeatedly. He will have no chance of hurting you, and will keep losing health. When he is down, you can take his weapon, money, potion, and a piece of the golden sword (which is a part of the quest).

  • Defeating Lizards

    To defeat Lizard Elites and Lizard Warriors when they appear in a group easier, draw your bow and hit one of them. Leave that location, and make sure they are following you. Go to an area with men, and they will help you kill them.
