Every single time I get attacked by bandits or have to fight to complete a quest, I just can’t win. And it’s not because of a lack of effort. I’ve wasted 27 hours of my life trying to figure it out. To all those who will suggest training with captain Bernard, he’s never there, and I’m still only in the Neuof (or however you spell it) quest. I can’t train with anyone. And I can’t gain experience through fights because I never live through them. If there’s two or more people in a group, while I focus on one, the other kills me. If I try to back away, the archer kills me. If I try to stay on horseback, I get knocked off. My equipment is already really good (The armor’s worth at least 6,000 g’s). I can’t "Just shoot them in the face with a bow) because my strength’s crap.
I’m not to the point of giving up yet because I spent my money on it and I at least want to enjoy the story. If anyone has any suggestions, I’d really appreciate it.
Thanks for everyone who replied. I managed to kill the two bandits at night while they were sleeping. Just gave them a few hits with my sword. Then I trained with Bernard. And now I just use master strikes or Chain strikes.
