I got this while playing in the highest difficulty and I can see how some people might struggle with this fight, reason why I'm posting this.

We've been taught that "the silver sword is the best one to deal with monsters". Cross that out. That's not always true. For instance, there's a sword called Tir Tochair Blade (which I've come across at least 3 times so far while exploring the world and kept the best one) that has a bit more than 30% chance to cause bleeding plus some other nice stats such as +50% critical damage and +5% critical chance. What matters here though is this bleeding effect. It allows you to face monsters that are a few levels higher than your witcher and takes their health points way faster than regular silver hits even if improved with oils.

You can even combine that with an improved Igni Sign (Melt Armor + Boosts of blue mutagen + an Igni Place of Power activated with Gorged on Power...) and you can switch between the bleeding and incineration effects to take on powerful enemies that otherwise you'd had a hard time defeating since they can kill you really fast with 1 or a couple of hits.

If this ideas help you in any way please leave a thumbs up to let me know. Thanks.
