Like this i sprobably totaly pointless, but nevertheless... I see a lot of ppl complaining about her, asking how to kill her and stuff... my first run trough the game was with female mage. i was around level 25 when encountered Josephine and had no more than 300-350 hp. I like killed her with a regular Partisan spear. and like wasted about 20restoration potions in the process, but was not big of a deal. She is tough sure, but like i was playing the game for first time, thus doing lots of stuff wrong, aka taking spear as preffered weapon, and using mage more in hand to hand combat and focusing on strenght and constitution, but still it was rather easy. later on when i played with a male warrior with a great sword form the hidden cave, she was even easire. (i was playing on noraml difficulty)
It says on those loading tips, that there are other things to combine except potions... is there are list somewhere of what you can combine? like except using straws to make bed and chamrimng stuff i havent found any other item combination.
