Hey duders. I picked up Shadow of Mordor during MS's Black Friday sale and I've been enjoying it quite a bit. I've gotten to the 4 Warchiefs mission, and now I'm just getting destroyed. To give a better sense of where I'm at:
Finished the early Gollum missions (up to the point where your ghost realizes who he is)
Have not finished the poison-all-the-Uruks mission (I gave it like 4 real shots and after the 5th time of the instant-fail on being caught I said fuck it)
Finished a handful of the challenge missions
What tends to happen is I get into combat, and I go from facing 5-8 bad guys (including whatever named Uruk I'm trying to take on) to suddenly being swarmed by 12-16, with a significant chance of 1-2 more named bad guys showing up. At that point, I'm about 40 seconds from being murdered. I was never amazing at the Arkham games combat but I did well enough that I beat Arkham Asylum and City. I feel like I'm missing some core concept or something that will make the game less of a ballbuster. So I'm coming to you fine folk. Any suggestions to make combat more manageable and/or some easily missed stealth tactic that can help with the poison mission?
