The Row is an arena type thing you'll have to fight through at the beginning of chapter 2. You'll have an ally at the start, and you have to progress through the area fighting goblins as you go. You'll eventually face a foreman and some orcs, and this will probably be the first fight that will give you problems (depending on your difficulty level).

You probably made Arkail a tank, but he has no armor during this, so he dies pretty fast. The only way I got through it on Extreme was constantly running around with Styx and fighting with Arkail. When Arkail died, I'd run up to him and revive him with Styx, and then keep running around. I'd take pot shots with Styx too if I had the space (Accurate Throw was what I used).

If Styx dies and Arkail is still alive, revive him immediately and go back to running with Styx. The AI was incredibly buggy for me here, half the time some of the enemy goblins just sat there and did nothing at the start, and that helped. If you happen to have Styx's stun bomb and have the upgrade that does an AoE stun, it will be incredible here, but I wasn't a high enough level. For the love of god save after so you don't have to do it again.

After that fight and another wave of goblins, you have to fight three berserker orcs. They will roll over Arkail in seconds. You'll have to do the same thing you just did, run around with Styx and revive Arkail when he falls, and he will. Constantly. I used the fire to the right side (if you just entered) because the orcs seem to have trouble pathing around it to get some space between me and them, then circle around and run to Arkail to revive him. I then either took some potshots with Styx or used the healing skill in the melee tree (top right if I remember right) to make sure I could survive a few hits with Styx if I got caught until Arkail died. Rinse, lather, repeat. It'll take quite awhile, please don't attempt this when you are sleepy.

After you beat the orcs, you'll talk to a foreman, then be lead away, and after that conversation you'll get this.
