At my first playthrough up to level 4 or so i was having some problems mainly because i didnt do all the questing in the first town so i was a little underlevel and quite honestly even same-level mobs were giving me a hard time.
But after winning a couple battles (with major pride i might add!), i started to understand the elemental combinations and battle started to get easier. After a few mistakes i restarted again and the 2nd playthrough was easy. Not realy realy easy because i did have some battles that proven quite a challenge, but quite good.
Game dificulty started going downhill after my 3 mages got "glass cannon" and enough skillpoints to go into 2 elemental trees though. It's severely overpowered. My poor tank a lot of times didnt even have time to reach on foot the mobs my mages were slaughtering from a distance. Some combinations are especialy devastating like boulder+fireball.
Game is hard in the beggining while you are still learning, then goes quite balanced and fun, and then goes stale and even diminishing level after level especialy if you do every quest and are the adequate level for that zone.
Larian should probably make the game slightly easier up to level 5, then maintain scale up to level 9 or so, and then make it slightly harder afterwards. This is from my impressions, opinions might vary...
