Throw down a Yrden circle, its awesome for packs of enemies. Every wolf, nekker, drowner, and anything entering it will slow to a crawl. Plus if you have it leveled up enough, everything affected by Yrden will take 50% more damage. One more thing that helps "not necessary" is if your Yrden is leveled enough you can use the secondary effect. So after you have a Yrden circle on the ground, stand near the center of it and press your Yrden key but hold it down for a few seconds. It will place a floating Yrden sign that will zap and damage, stagger anything in range. They will be very slow and be getting shocked while you slice and dice. Yrden is awesome for packs of enemies.Im replaying on death march(new game +) right now. Wolf packs are ridiculously overpowered, even when I'm 5 level's over them. Anybody have any tips on how to kill these bastards? I tried luring them away from the pack one at a time, and its useless.
