When you try to help someone and they bite your head off
You obviously didn't pay ANY attention to anything I said...
You never said anywhere what your classes, difficulty levels, builds, operating system, or version are. All of that is helpful. We can't give you good advice if you don't tell us anything.
Hirge doesn't help at all...she always takes damage too quickly
hol up your #1 problem was that you always take all the damage and mobs won't switch targets...so...not sure where to go with this. AS MENTIONED BEFORE you never told us your build--Crusader 3 gives Hirge 5% stun chance which will help a bunch.
Grissenda was knocked out by all the skeletons and vampires
Did you kill all the mobs after cleaning the fountains and then wait for Grissenda to be revived? Or did you use a Scroll: Circle of Restoration?
For fighting the bosses, you have FOUR seconds to get away from the Vampire Elder. Stand near a door -> Paralyze elder -> Go through with Dobros -> Stand behind a wall so the Elder doesn't notice you. It's all about potions--do a couple Sunken runthroughs if possible, and kill some Outlaw
s if you can't.
you always obtain quests long before you ever possibly have a chance of completing them

All you had to do was ask. Calling me a liar and/or a troll doesn't seem like the best move.
vorators and Archers both need a serious nerf
I'm fully confused by why you're having difficulty with these. Here,
at 1:51, someone easily takes down similar-level archers. Here,
at 2:31, someone easily takes down vorators. Stun can be hard to deal with, admittedly, which is why I suggested cheesing the Amulet of Dark whispers
, or just getting Battle Rage
by that point you probably already have a better wand/staff
We can argue all day about whether certain weapons become obsolete too early. That's not the point. Other than a few items, I would say the game is balanced pretty well, and pretty much every item in the game is useful at some point to some build. If you're a mage with a better wand, and you fight your way to the Branch, you just gained 750 gold AND you're 2/3 of the way to a potion of lesser restoration and some xp.
But just for kicks, since I like arguing, the Branch is the earliest Spirit-damage Mage weapon you can get by 3-5 levels...and it's the ONLY spirit damage Wand. Everything is useful at some point to some build; don't complain because it doesn't help you.
THE ENEMIES ALWAYS TARGET ME
Short of a full combat tutorial, I'm not sure how to help you here.
Two very important points:
1. Enemies "lock on" to the closest target. If you want that to be you, tell your companion to wait, then approach the enemy. It will attack you and your companion will attack it. You can then circle around and attack it from the other side, so your companion flanks.
2. Only one enemy can be in a doorway at a time. When facing a swarm, tell your companion to wait by a doorway, then pull all the mobs next to the door. One will go through and attack you. Your companion will attack them with you. If you want them to switch targets, back up out of range, then continue attacking once it locks onto your companion.
Also consider that, if multiple targets are in range and an enemy isn't "locked on" (e.g after stun/entering an area), it will always choose you. If one target backs out of range and another is available, it will switch targets instead of moving.Basically, dude, look at 2:31 and if you aren't doing that, start.
All of your issues seem like personal problems. That is fine. But the game has been developed and balanced for 2+ years, so if something seems too hard, you
likely need to change something rather than the developer. Please also consider that I and Bans1x are doing our best to help you. I've had 11 months of experience and have beaten the game on hardcore. That doesn't make me perfect, but I spent over an hour typing up this reply and searching for links. When you blow off everything I say, it feels like you're saying my time is worthless. Tell me if I'm misunderstanding something or not explaining myself clearly, because I legitimately want to help you get better and figure out any trouble you're having.
. Also, some legend beat the Dimensional Parasite
as a level 16 cleric, but I can't find the link. It's all about practice, experimenting, and learning from others
