How to Perform a Flurry Rush
Use runes such as Remote Bomb, Stasis, Cryonis, and Magnesis to stop enemies from performing a strong attack. A red circle will appear on top of an enemy indicating which rune to use to counter the enemy's attack.
If you find yourself low on hearts, you can pick up apples that can be found in crates and barrels or by defeating large enemies. Be sure to collect excess apples as these replenish the food meter found in the item menu.
Issue orders to multiple characters to move them throughout the map. This lets you switch to other characters to complete objectives without having to move each of them manually.
