Console commands
Is there a comprehensive list of them? Turning the difficulty all the way down didn't make this boss any easier so I'm just going to cheat. :V

inb4 getting flamed for playing games differently than other people

Edit: Found it:

Hey in my defense, I'm more of a puzzle-platformer/metroidvania kind of boss person. Huge difference in losing because you need to assess the bossfight and because you didn't grind enough enemies. :P

Which boss? You shouldn't need to grind, but it is certainly possible to enter areas before it is wise to do so (usually with some kind of indication in game that an area may be tough).

Dragon-knight ghost dude who summons some big scary things in the tower with the scrying orb.

After turning on God, and then being confused about why nothing happened, I'm thinking I'm fighting the boss wrong so will give another go at playing normally and find out if there's a puzzle I have to solve instead of just straight-up killing him.

The first time I tried that in DKS I was level 10 (playing a ranger on nightmare), and ended up putting off using a potion too long and dying. I probably could have survived if I just reloaded and tried again, but decided to go get the creature first (necromancer's quest). By the time I used the scrying stone again I was level 12, so that and having the creature made it a much easier fight.

I think god mode just interferes with certain events being triggered. There is no trick to killing the ghost, but you should mindread him before ending the conversation.
There is a puzzle (of sorts) there, when you finish of the ghost and abominations. The obvious choice is not necessarily the best choice...

I'm level 7, currently. I started on normal difficulty and turned it to casual when these skeletons kept killing me way too easily at the front gate, and still had a hard time with them. I don't like grinding so I pressed forward anyway. ;v I guess I'll have to climb down from the tower and just do more quests. I'm using a mage character. I do not recommend it, magic is a pain to cast.

I did find something out about console commands though. I wanted to play with morpho because why not, being a rabbit sounded fun, but if you turn into a player, you lose your original appearance and are the default player. Not recommended, unless there's a command to customize the player from anywhere in the game with that console that I don't know about. ;V

The skeletons around Lovis' tower are level 9, so it would be easier if you were level 9, as well. Once you get access to the full Broken Valley, there are goblins you can clear to the east along the mountain, and west and up a mountain trail. Both those areas contain a hatch leading to the derelict tunnels, which you can do on level 7 or 8, rather than heading straight to Lovis' tower.

What's the fun of climbing down? Just jump (as long as you don't land in the middle of a bunch of skeletons). There is a teleporter shrine near the base of the tower, at the edge of the lake.

You can not directly modify the character with the Developer Mode, but you can use it to teleport to an illusionist (after you take over the battle tower you will have easy access to one). Use goto character Tiresias to get back to the illusionist in Farglow (or Hermaphroditus for the one in the battle tower, but the lighting is very orange in that room if you go there early, to the point where you can barely see anything). Alternately, you can return to Farglow by 'goto region: 004_Tutorial Main' and then 'goto: -80 10 10'.
When you are done you can goto region Broken Valley 2 Main, or hit 'loc' to get your region and coordinates before you teleport to Farglow, so you can get back to where you left.

Oh, that's a good idea. Didn't think of that. At some point, I must experience this game as a chicken. :V

A WRPG where you take no fall damage... Definitely unique. Thank you for the advice by the way. I get lost pathetically easy in WRPGs. (Which is weird because I play lots of confusing platformers and old Zelda games just fine) I'd have never seen that shrine.

Incidentally, I now feel safer using the hj command - but mostly for the purpose of climbing everything. It's kind of a hobby of mine to scale structures in sandbox games. Got pretty far up Anvil's chapel in Oblivion and could jump over the city wall just about everywhere. Quite broken, but also extremely fun.

The slayers were formed to go after dragons, so the ones who couldn't take a fall didn't last very long.

That boss: There is a little caged area off to the left as you enter the room where you can hide when you get into trouble. It is sort of cheating without cheating, but it makes the fight very easy when you find it.

Apparently I don't even have to kill him for the main story. When I saw that in a walkthrough, it became understandable why he's so powerful :V Gotta love WRPGs and their complete lack of direction. ;3

In fact, if you give the scrying orb to the priest without using it yourself first, you will never even see the ghost (so can not mindread him for a stat point).

Well I just wanted to get to turn into a dragon but since that's turning into a major process I guess I'll just abuse the teleport command :V
