You can climb up to the rafters on that fight, my latest play was terrible at persausion, so I just climbed up and got sneak shots from the rafters at the guys. You can CC the Hobgoblin leader, Menacing Strike from Lae'zel is great on the leader.
Just be careful on the rafters, because the leader has an AOE knockback that can throw you from the rafters.
li cannot stand how larian has made this game with a heavy bias towards ranged dps.
player melee is vastly underpowered.
i truly hate that throughout this game you are relagated to
get height advantage
and by doing so yoy take yourself out of melee rangr and are forced to spell or bow it up.
