In this game, healing spells is very rare. So if possible try to win all combats without injuring yourself. This may sounds difficult but it is possible. I did! The best weapon is the crusader's sword, followed by the longsword. So, when you started playing, get the longsword as soon as possible, it is in the armoury. The armoury has lots of weapons and armours but don't take the armor unless you are carrying very little items, get the shield instead, choose the one which give the best protection. Weapons skill improve through practice, so stick to the longsword at the beginning. Don't waste your spells on the guards, save them for the gremlins that are inside the garden maze.
Fight at the in until you reach the monster's lair. Cast two spells into the cave to finish the monsters inside. Once the monsters in the lair is destroyed, none will appear anymore. Get Elvira's ring and then use it to get the crusader's sword. Make a save before any fight. When in combat, try to guess which direction the enemy is attacking, prepare to block when they did. If you are injured, carry on the fight but load in the saved game and try again until you have defeated the enemy without any injury. At first it might be difficult, but once you have a weapon skill of 60 and above, combat is easy. So in the mean time, endure!
Remember one thing though, monsters get lesser and lesser as you finish them off. So after a time, you don't have to worry about combat anymore. To block an enemy attack correctly, all you need is to block/parry at the correct timing, after a few fights, you should be able to judge when to block/parry. As for attacking, you can try any manner of attacking, but once in a while change your combat style a bit to confuse the enemy.
Ingredients are very limited. So try to collect them when you came across them. Click on anything you see in the screen. Click on trees to get herb, click on plants to get flowers, leaves, etc. Click on hole to look inside them. Click on skull to get the bottle inside. So, you can see that almost anything that is visible is worth clicking. Try not to avoid those area you have been to, they might contains some useful items.
1. Look for bolts in the drawers or cupboard upstairs. Find a silver crucifix. Go to the blacksmith place. Get the crucible in the box and place it in the fire. Place the silver cross inside the crucible to melt it. Then put a bolt in the crucible to make a silver tipped crossbolt. Go to stable. Look at man, when he transform into a wolf, use the silver bolt to kill it. Now go inside and check out the stable closely. One of the iron ring can be removed, behind it is a gold key.
2. Go to kitchen. Mix the light spell. Turn left and click on the dumb waiter. When Elvira opens it, drag the glowing pride to the tunnel to light it up. Elvira will then enter it and give you a gold key.
