I just finished fighting Cristoff and am having a lot of trouble making my way up the mountain. I can get past the first couple of battles alright, but then I run into a group of two of those frozen stone things and another monster.

What was your strategy for this area? Right now I'm using the default party of Mericious, Ferwin, and Grace.

If I recall, lucky shot/thunderstrike are pretty effective against them, because you can break the sheild without wasting a whole attack (in fact you can break two sheilds and lightly damage the guy in the middle). I also seem to recall that I seemed to be doing some damage and breaking the sheild at the same time with some attacks; maybe the sheild doesn't work on magic damage? Or maybe my imagination's overactive.

Anyways, while those are probably the most effective, explosive shot might also be a good choice (especially if the statue's in the second row), and hack also works (the second swing deals damage). Since I was already using lucky shot to hurt the iceeni and the snake enemies, I had no problem with the statue enemies (it was the iceeni, the snakes and especially the burrowing enemies that got me). If you're mainly having problems with pairs of the statue enemy, it might be smart to use even an unleveled area-of-effect attack but waiting until they've both got sheilds up (letting your other guys store up energy and/or assist skills), though that may not be feasible during the last leg of the climb (on the other hand, it's not like you're losing attacks, just putting them off).

As Brickman says, multi-hit skills are the best way to avoid wasting too much damage on the Blue Bittens. Even if you do not subsequently hit them with another skill, they will later expend energy to recreate their shield instead of attacking.

Aurora can also be useful here, combined with frequent party rotation, since they deal magical damage to the character at the back of the party.
