Encased preview One big thing about combat that I didn't mention is tiredness. Basically anything above the most basic attacks drains your stamina, which can lead to debuffs and fainting on the battlefield (not great). Avoid that by using powers, coffee and drugs. You'll get plenty of later, as inventory management is also very much a thing in this game. Will you cart around useless equipment and crafting materials to sell them off? Which combat drugs are worth using? Do I want to use a wonder science scalper to slaughte people or will I take the wrench and attempt to knock them out non-lethally?
