When I approach Vincon Traut in Chapter 2 in an attempt to obtain his enchanted armor, he warns me that it was a mistake to go there by myself. Spot on, Vincon — I thought I was fairly comfortable with the combat system but your blade and your conspirators are making me look like a complete fool. I can't even kill a single one of you, since there are six men and I'm stuck in a small room with no space to roll around. You take advantage of me at the beginning of the battle by swinging your blade while I draw my sword, wiping away 20% of my health and making me bleed, too. It's not like Quen is of much use, either, since two men make such short work of it.
How am I supposed to survive this encounter? Should I rely on extreme luck with Aard? Or is there some tactic that will make this encounter much easier for me?
