I will give you here some advice for playing through the game on Dark difficulty. You should do it on your 2nd playthrough, it will be much more easier and if you are going for all the achievements you need 2 playthroughs anyways.

How you should spend your ability talents :

Upgrade the abilities which increase your vitality and vigor/vigor regeneration, but most important is the footwork ability in the swordsman tree, it gives you 200% faster rolling. For the magic tree, upgrade the QUEN sign abilities, you should only focus on this sign, it provides you protection from 1-2 hits and deals some damage to enemies when you get hit. The alchemy tree is quite unnecessary, but if you use bombs and traps you can invest in the Alchemist ability to increase the damage.

Tactics in battle :

Don't just run into the horde and try to slaugther them, you'll die very fast... Then you should now that steel swords are better for humans and silver swords for monsters, even if the stats say otherwise. So if you don't want to get yourself killed from 2-3 hits use the QUEN sign, if you get hit you can just roll back and cast it again, this is very helpful! Also you should use rolling as much as you can!!
Blocking enemies are the hardest, so wait until they attack you, then roll around them and attack from behind and repeat rolling around them, also for other enemies!
When facing bigger hordes of enemies just take your time, try to separate them and don't take too much hits on you. If you have trouble, buy some bombs or craft them.
The boss fights are nothing to worry about if you master the QUEN sign.
Also remember to save many times and don't intimidate people to avoid fights.

Good luck, hope it helps!
