Golems aren't bad at all if u are using right strategy. If u are gonna trade blows with em' ur most likely gonna die(especially since u can't block any of their attacks). Yrden + backstab will wreck anything in this game, including shale
You can't be serious? Harpies are easy attack a few times/dodge..repeat. Once had 6-10 harpies attacking me( first play through on normal) They really aren't difficult, Got my perfectionist achievement with them. --- Xbox Live - ReaperOfTerror
Gargoyles are way worse. They hit like trucks and explode when they die, dealing massive damage. Also, getting swarmed by 5-6 and getting stuck in one of their combo's is complete utter hell, making back slashes nearly impossible. They really pissed me off trying to farm 9 dusts off of them for the final dark mode set in chapter 3. I was successful, but I died several times even in full Oathbreaker gear.
