Combat sucks in this game. Sorry.
There's only 3 improvements this game could use. Even without these improvements this game is still the best RPG i ever played. (Quicker spell cast - Better use of traps (I never use them) - I constantly use Dodge which makes parry irrelevant)
The mobs can be tough when you have no room in the cave but having potions and putting yourself in position so you don't get trapped in a corner is what worked best for me.

I used quen and then threw a bomb to disperse the Harpies. Worked fine for me. Or you could always use Aard to push the bastards out of the way.

I didn't comment here due to my holidays, but I played the game day one and it's an awesome game. Everything I hoped for, I did wish a more fluid combat system, but it's still a blast. I love the new potion system, I mean really, if you were in a fight, would you have time to down a red bull? I'd down one before work, then when I got there I'd oil up my keyboard whetstone my mouse and start hitting on all the busty wh0res.

I don't know if it's my ISP but my download rate with Steam has slowed down. I've got 12 hours to go @ 53kb/s. DAMN! I want to play Witcher 2 nao!
