I don't like Blizzard. For me it seems to slow me up too much. Strange isn't it? I can hardly move around with that on.
yup, every time I've tried blizzard, I've been horribly disappointed. the only thing it seems to slow down is YOU. the increase to dodge simply isn't worth it.
yeah that koschey is the toughest monster since early act II archespore, no doubt.
i did it this way:
tawny/maribor/swallow/petri drink some milk or other good endurance restorer after you start casting spells.
cast a level 3 trap near a wall (near a wall to make it easier to line up the direction he is coming at you from).
move behind trap a few steps, when koschey hits trap and is bounced back, hit it with igni.
lather, rinse, repeat.
the trap lasts for about 11 hits at level 3, and slows him down and knocks him back. helps if you have igni and int maxed, with bonuses to incinerate.
I think that monster has about 1500-1800 hp.
for those that tried it, does the potion that stops bleeding actually work for that nasty special this thing has?

Well I won this fight after reading this thread - and all I did was simply run around the central pillar and used Igni when it was ready. Took about 10-12 hits (and the beast even got hold of me once) - but it was as simply as that.

All the spider can do is try to change direction on you while he fries to death. But man, can that thing deal out the damage in an open fight! There really is no combination of potions that will get you through...

1. Use the Quen sign and do not take (as much) damage.
2. Drink a tawny owl
3. Set a trap with Yrden; probably a trap of level 1 will be best since it has extra charges+knockback ... if you charge it up you get a special attack but the trap seems to disappear.
4. When the Quen shield effect runs out, cast it again
5. Use Igni on the monster
6. Rinse and repeat.

Not quite. Exact translation would be "Bony" but the proper translation from Polish to English should really have been "Reaper" (as in "Grim Reaper") that's what Kosciej's figure represents in Slavic folklore.

edit: i have to admit - i think the crinfrid oil was useless but it looks nice ^^ if i knew i had to fight that thing i think i would have used a rune or diamond dust

Yrden sign worked beautifully on hard on him. Killed him too. I didnt even need to use igni on him or hit him very much.

it did take me 2 goes tho to beat this beast but the first i was going head to head with it and i forgot to make some more potions cause i ran out
but that tactic was the simplest tactic i found worked well i didn't try anything else oh and i did drink a tawny owl to increase the endurance rate
