Gameplay tips and progression

Garl Vinland is incredibly durable and very dangerous around mages. When creating this build focus on your endurance before any other statistics. This will ensure you can " suit up " quickly once you make short work of your impostor at the Valley of Defilement. Your one-handed weapons can severely damage your opponent when you complete a combo effectively and pierce their defenses with continuous strikes which can inflict magical damage. Weapons usually wielded with two hands such as the Mirdan Hammer, Claymore and Bramd will crush shielded opponents and provide you with excellent range.

Just as Ilkar had mentioned before, fire is your main weakness. Your shield can only protect you from 70% of fire damage. In other words, beware of Ignite, Fireball and of course Firestorm. Finish mages off quickly, they know of your weakness. Use hyper mode combined with Cursed Weapon or Black Turpentine for massive damage against those who resist the magical properties of your weapons. If things get ugly you can change the flow of battle with Death Cloud and be a helping hand with Relief.
