I couldn't go back to sleep after feeding the baby at 4am, so I played a couple of hours of LOTF before getting ready for work.
I decided to try a new character, just to see what the Warrior is like. After all, the first boss drops a Greatsword that requires Strength 15, and I really wanted to try that out.
The Warrior: Holy shit, this is like easy mode. He can take so many more hits before his health bar gets to zero, the better armor also helps with that. And I was able to immediately start using that Greatsword, and it is fantastic. It hits so hard. It has a long wind-up time, so it's tricky against little rogue assassin type guys, but against everyone else it is devastating. I almost beat that second boss on the first try, and only died because of a silly mistake in not being able to drink my potion. I got the Commander easily on the second try. The Greatsword makes it so that I only have to hit the Commander a few times total.
I'm also still curious about the Cleric. His spells seem a lot more interesting. I wonder if I can go back and beat that boss battle now that I know the animations and game systems a little better? Or will I still have a really tough time with that boss using the Cleric? I'll try to find out tonight.
One final note: I did briefly also start a rogue. I love the way the Rogue feels so unique compared to the other two. Normal enemies actually went down easier than with the cleric and warrior. But that first boss was really hard for me to beat with the rogue because he has to get so much closer to the enemy to do any damage. Basically I have to go hug the enemy, and if the enemy even starts an attack animation while I'm trying to move in for a kiss and a hug, my rogue gets hit repeatedly. So I think I'll abandon the Rogue for good. Great feel for the character, but I'd hate to be having a tough time against bosses throughout the game using that guy.
