Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • As the area is covered with traps, it is suggested you give the hold command to your party and let the Hurlock Alpha come to you, while using ranged attacks on the other enemies, starting with the Hurlock Emissary.

Solo strategy[edit | edit source]

This very common random encounter is actually one of the toughest fights for a solo character. Small area with no cover, many traps, a mage, two Berserk Berserk-capable archers, two Berserk Berserk-capable W&S warriors, and a 2H lieutenant that can literally one-hit an unarmored character if he doesn't miss.

That said, it can be done by a solo Ranger Ranger with just The Sorrows of Arlathan The Sorrows of Arlathan and Senior Enchanter's Robes Senior Enchanter's Robes. Talents required: Arrow of Slaying Arrow of Slaying, Summon Spider Summon Spider, Defensive Fire Defensive Fire, Master Archer Master Archer, Master Ranger Master Ranger.
