[Witcher 3] Jenny is a b****!

Recommended Posts

I've come to realise I absolutely suck at the combat in this game. No matter what I do, I just can't get my fingers to do the whole "dodge - hit - hit - dodge" thing properly.

Currently I am trying, and failing, to dispatch 'Jenny o' the woods'.

 

The tactics I'm taking are sound and I'm fairly sure I have ample armour and a good sword complete with Spectre oil to tackle this challenge, but I constantly am killed in two hits by her.

 

This is what I do/have done:

Either get Quen up and then Yrden, sometimes just Yrden and then dodge and draw her in to the trap and hit her. Rinse repeat!

Sometimes I have taken Thunderbolt to aid in the power I inflict, sometimes not. Whenever the wraiths appear when she's healing I always get rid of them really quick, no problem with those.

For some reason though, my dodging is just... well... crap. One hit and I'm 40% damaged, I struggle on and try to eat food/take potions to heal but usually I miss the next dodge again and I'm a gonna!

 

I'm currently lvl10 with pretty good items and I've seen YouTubers at lvl5 take her on and have no issue.

 

Can someone please give me a heads up on how to dodge properly? Most of the time I think I'm getting hit when Geralt dodges backwards and Jenny's reach is still good enough to hit.

Is that my issue? Do I need to hit the dodge key and a left or right ALL the time?

For spectres I always roll, not dodge. Their swings usually make them hit too far to dodge. Rolling away from the incoming hit(teleport attack) leaves them within range when their attack stops.

Do you know whether the damage she inflicts ramps up according to what level you are?

I've just noticed she's doing around 2000 HP damage to me but I only see around 1200 from those on the net.

 

Thanks for the tip. I'll try again with rolling not dodging. Damn this is frustrating but so addictive. What a game.

Level does increase/decrease damage. Obviously you take less damage the higher you are in relation and vice versa.

Death March! and I will not lower the level to get past her.

One thing I've noticed that I don't know if it can be changed or not, can I change the camera position to be a bit further back and higher up than it currently appears to me? I think I'm finding it difficult to judge the distance from me she is.

Thank you guys, with your tuition I am becoming a better witcher.

Just now collected the Foglet trophy from the ancient foglet in the "Swamp Thing" quest. From what I have read some consider that a pretty hard battle so I must be doing something right if I can do it with dying once!
