=== '''Fighting Strategies''' ===
When using the View Interface, one can easily back up while fighting, which can help prevent one from being hit at all. A hit the on the monster causes it to
being knocked back, and if the character backs up quickly enough, the monster will not have a chance to attack before the character is ready to strike a blow. By the time the monster has advanced enough to strike, the character can swing again, back up...etc. This can be a very handy tactic.
Just make sure you have enough room (small rooms can prevent this tactic) and don't step off a large drop. (I can see me doing this: "Ah-ha...I have you noo...ooo...www.....splat").
