Hi everyone -- I'm new *only* to playing a game like this on the iPad. I have been playing for years, going back to the *original* Castle Wolfenstein and Duke Nukem, and then through Bard's Tale, Eye of the Beholder, Icewind Dale, Neverwinter, Baldur's Gate, etc. etc. and so many more. But this game on the iPad has me really frustrated, to the point of almost giving up. I've started over (from the beginning of Chapter 2) several times with different characters, Nalia, Hexxat, Jaheira, Yoshimo -- and the problem is, I can't complete a quest because I can't win a fight! I don't know what's wrong, but it seems that on any real quest, one or more of my party dies. I've tried Hexxat's quest in the graveyard, Nalia's (I can't get past a bunch of slavers), Jaheira's (stuck on the golems), on and on. I know in many games there's the equivalent of a "training dungeon," where you can build up your skills, but the sewers, for example, in this game were too hard -- again, wound up with many dead. I don't know if anybody can tell me what to do, but I just want to express frustration because I can't seem to get off the ground.
Any ideas for a very old newbie?
