The potion system has a pretty big and stupid flaw though. You can't stock up on health once you ran out of it in a boss fight. I guess it is a design choice, but if you used those 4 health and 1 mana you are completely done for. I played up to the boss medusa thing, got her down to half health but here stupid freeze attack... anyway, after that I quit and never intend to come back. The potion system works great against mobs, but if there is only 1 extremely strong enemy you are essentially rolling a dice before the battle even starts. With the random misses (hate that too) and that enemies can interupt a skill attack costing you mana ... not the game for me sadly.

(And yeah, I guess stocking up on stronger healing is a solution to tackle the boss, but that requires grinding, a lot of grinding.

Wow really?? You can just drop a portal and refill flasks in town. What a rant for something that is so easily overcome**. Ya part of the problem if a solution is not readily apparent ya give up and move on

Stock up on Cold resist (20%+ rings avail from vendors) and you probably dont even need to use more than 2 health potions.

**Not sure if you can do that in cruel/merciless or custom maps but def on normal.
