Haven’t really touched 3H in a while sadly, but the new difficulty is out for everyone(I believe) and apparently it’s really difficult. Saw something on Twitter and I think it sums it up pretty nicely.
They’ve adjusted how much renown you get from completing a path so you now get 10k instead of 5k before(Not entirely sure if you got 5k previously, but it’s what I heard). This means that Maddening was probably built specifically with NG+ in mind and that you’re going to die a lot regardless. Seen a few people have trouble with just the prologue, lmao.
As an added bonus, apparently the Death Knight is aggroed immediately(Meaning he’s not just going to sit still and let you avoid him the entire fight) in the chapter you get the Creator Sword in. So I hope Lysithea is over-leveled(Or in this case slightly under-leveled) and can still one-shot or get close to one-shoting Death Knight before he kicks your shit in.
