There are probably quite a few strategies to use for beating this game on 'Gothic' difficulty, but I'll list mine and hopefully somebody will find them usefull.

1. I never bothered with any magic. I figured my ranged skills were more important since I simply used the 'back away and pepper them with arrows method. So, when I leveled up, I allotted my points to skill trees that added HP and melee/ranged damage.
2. I never bought any armor from merchants. I always found better armor in chests and eventually crafted a great set about 2/3 of the way through the game.
3. I always bought all the arrows that any merchant had to offer as well as health potions. I never bothered with a crossbow because I found it much easier to zoom with my standard bow and go for headshots, especially once I got the "+30%" headshot bonus.
4. Never let yourself get cornered...always scout your backup route before engaging a group on enemies. Then, pick a target, draw the bow, and do as much damage to him before he gets near. Try to pick off one enemy at a time when facing a large group.
5. If you're low on health, run from the battle until the red dots on your radar disappear. Then, use your bandages to heal and save the potions for in-battle health fixes. Then, return to the battle, rinse and repeat.


6.In the final battle with Xetha, there really is nowhere to hide once she calls in her minions. Concentrate on them before worrying about Xetha. Make sure you have at least 200 health potions and short-cut them to the dpad. Use your highest melee weapon and spam the crap out of those health potions when you need to.

I hope this helps somebody...the game isn't that difficult until the final battle. Good luck.
