I was just fighting with Phase Spider Matriach. And preparation before fight take me around half hour.
It takes to much time to set all traps, kill all enemies who can be killed before boss fight. Difficulty level of game is a lot highter than in any of Baldur's Gate game.

its an optional encounter. The time investment didn't bother me, I am not in any rush to finish games and rather like savoring them. . .Having said that. . .This was one of the few combat encounters I really disliked.

Walking into the fight blind and killing everything in that room didn't take a half hour...

Took me several hours of timed sneaking, I really hate that spider fight. My saved games got corrupted after taking the key stone in stealth and not fighting the spiders so I was forced to fight them.


I had to sneak around and kill the eggs first or be overwhelmed with critters. The stupid matriarch was camping one batch and didn' t want to move away. Making it move by touching a web path with another char just got that char killed usually.


Probably didn't help that I don't like using surface tactics since that leaves the floor on fire and hinders my own chars.

I burned the first web bridge she appeared on and let her take the 40 points falling damage. Any smaller spiders that made it up got stabbed and/or pushed or thunderwaved off.

I disagree. I loved the set up/espionage part of the fights.

I felt like I was getting my "ducks in a row".

Funny thing... that was actually a bug for the Kobold commandos critting way more than they should.

How long does your game take to load? I am saving all my SSD for Cyberpunk 2077 and an infinite amount of mods and DLCs but I haven't had more than a second and half for reload times on a mechanical drive. In the beginning, on the ship it was almost instantaneous which is what I am hoping for in the final build. . .You are scaring me sir.

bloody game spiders putting a gun to your head making you reload! Bad spiders you should report it to the police!!

Note don't though I'm sure they'll laugh that a game is forcing you to chose to reload when you can just fight it.

It's not it's you.

I say roll with it! It dares to turn and spot you kill it, laugh at it, then cook it, and eat it! If you a tpk (total party kill) then reload and try again.

Seriously, This is the Early Access build. Wait to save scum until it matters, Experiment, do things wrong, learn from the experience. You might actually end up a better player

It is my fault that game is unbalanced, and every one in my party have 20-30% hit chance? I miss one spell and enemy will wipe me because that spell do 15-30 dmg. And my melee hits are for 6-10 when enemy hits me for 10-20.
And this is not even a dragon or lich.

My favorite encounter so far because it was the toughest. I like this boss. It takes time to prepare but it's worth it I think. I must add though, my main character is a drow and so it's quite easier in the dark.

Larian should be praised for the way they handle light in this game. It's the first CRPG I play in which it's truly impactful.

I don't say it is not fun but there a lot of situation like this and most of times enemy can oneshot you, and but avoid them you losing exp, items etc. even you you do it by using yopur smart dialog option.
