The Thaumaturge: How to Change Combat Difficulty



The Thaumaturge - Change Combat Difficulty Level

The Thaumaturge provides a complex turn-based combat system with unique mechanics that can be difficult to understand at the start and can cost you several losses when fighting your first major Salutor fight. However, the game is forgiving enough to change the combat difficulty whenever you desire to overcome your losses and progress ahead in the story.

In this guide, we’ll tell you how to change combat difficulty in The Thaumaturge.

How to Change Combat Difficulty in The Thaumaturge

There are three combat difficulties in The Thaumaturge, Story, Balanced, and Challenge. As players begin the new journey, they will be required to select one of the difficulties for the adventure. Despite selecting the difficulty at the start, players will be able to freely change the difficulty at any time, except while in combat. To change the combat difficulty in The Thaumaturge, follow the following steps.

  • Open the main menu of the game and navigate to Options.
  • Select the Gameplay tab and you will find the ‘Difficulty level’ option under the Combat section.
  • Use the arrows on the option to change the difficulty level among the available three difficulties.
  • Once done, press the C button to apply the changes.

Changing the difficulty level will only impact the combat difficulty as there aren’t any other mechanics that are heavily dependent on the difficulty level. All the choices and dialogue options remain the same and you will be able to use the Flaw regularly as in any other difficulty level.

Combat will be altered in terms of damage upon changing the difficulty level to a respective level. If you increase the difficulty level, you will receive more damage from the enemies along with Damage Over Time (DOT) per round. Similarly, if you decrease the difficulty level, you will receive less damage from the enemies and if you are on Story difficulty then there will be no DOT.

There will be no alterations in the speed of enemies or any other positive trait nor increment in the damage of your attacks. All of these will remain the same as any other difficulty level but since you will receive less damage, it will make more breathable for you during battle sequences.
