Despite the complexity, it’s uncommon for players to completely gloss over one of the most critical mechanics in the game—resting, which is vital for maintaining a healthy and powerful party. Resting allows for full healing, spell restoration, and the replenishment of short rests, thus aiding the party’s overall strength and progression.

However, one player severely misunderstood this vital mechanic, only utilizing it three times during a ten-hour playthrough.

Reflecting on their error, the player expressed, “I played 10 hours on a save and only rested 3 times. I treated spells like an extremely scarce resource and wouldn’t use them until it was absolutely necessary. Boy did that make the game hard. I was trying to get as strong as I could without taking a long rest. I can’t wait to try out the game more without my stupidity.”

Hopefully, they will have a more enjoyable experience moving forward by understanding the game’s mechanics better.
