Oh. My. God. I finally, finally, managed to beat Gaffgarion at the hangman’s noose. Only just though! I realised my magic users are mostly useless, as they couldn’t attack without causing friendly fire, and couldn’t survive more than two hits, so I sent them up out of the way to kill off the two Mystics and lay into select enemies from a distance. Phew!
I’ve only spent 10 hours on this one battle, you know.
