I guess my problems with the Helvig boss in the DLC zone is just my own and not related to NG+, he seems completely ridiculous and I wish you guys never put staves in the game.

As far as NG+ I didn't want a scaled up version of the game after I beat it, I wanted to go and do the DLC while being slightly overpowered, but because I beat the game first I have to now go back to the DLC zones without certain things like drone power cores and deal with enemies that can easily 1 or 2 shot me. It's really annoying and it would have been nice to just not do NG+ and just be given an option to actually enjoy the DLCs instead of having to deal with scaled up enemies.
