Am I meant to be savescumming all the time or am I expected to fight and run after being detected? I feel like I would be playing wrong if I used my sword. Also during the prison and crypt levels I just bunny hopped past all the dinosaurs and zombies. Am I playing wrong or what cuz this game seems okay at best so far.

Also I skipped the Thieves Guild level immediately since everyone agrees its bad, lol.

You shouldn't, it's not the best level of the game by any means, but it's not the worst either, and the casino part is kinda cool. The sewers could be shorter and less confusing, but if you listen to what the guards talk about (which is something most players who complain about the level never do), it's not terrible.

Save scumming is a real easy way to ruin the game for yourself. Almost as bad as abusing the shit out of glitches like the blackjack quirks and bunny hopping.
>or am I expected to fight and run after being detected?
Ideally you would never be detected, but if you are just run. Use anything you can to escape. Parkour, weird routes, flashbombs are basically a get out of jail free card. This isn't like other stealth games. The decks stacked against you.

>Also during the prison and crypt levels I just bunny hopped past all the dinosaurs and zombies.
It's cheating using bunny hopping since the devs patched it out in the sequel. Those are mostly atmospheric sections. You wont really appreciate them unless you replay the games and familiarize yourself with the settings.

>Also I skipped the Thieves Guild level immediately since everyone agrees its bad, lol.
That was kinda a dumb move. The Thieves Guild is bad, but it's a level where you wont realize just how bad it is until you replay the game. It's like the inverse of the Down in the Bonehoard.

Just to elaborate. Down in the Bonehoard is a level where you notice way more shit about it the more you play it, and the creepy atmosphere starts to stand out more when you're not just bumbling through the level. The Thieves Guild is extremely linear and even has a few lighting bugs, but when you're new to the game you wont notice the bugs and probably wont be able to wrap your head around the level at first to notice how bad it is. The well is probably poisoned at this point for you though.

You can savescum all you want with marble floor that shit is legit retarded but other than that just keep learning the game and eventually stop using your training wheels.

For some reason it just clicked that you were talking about ghosting. Don't ghost. The games hard enough as it is without that level of turbo autism, and the levels are so damn big you're going to make mistakes. Making mistakes is part of the game and getting yourself out of bad situations you got in for being caught is also part of the challenge. I fell for the ghosting meme on my first playthrough and it really made the game not fun for me.

If you're not abusing the shit out of glitches and don't know the game like the back of your hand, then it's already out of your hands. That ghosting shit flies in other games because the game gives you 10,000 overpowered tools along with shit like a 3rd person camera angle, that stack the odds too heavily in your favor.

>Marble
There's nothing wrong with marble. It's the glitchy ass ladder physics and first person parkour that I warrants a save.

hold the fuck up, you can keep blackjacking guards to knock them out after they're alerted?

You have a small chance you can still knock them out, but most of the time you will kill them if you keep blackjacking them
