River Crossing is a World Map encounter when traveling to or from the Brecilian Forest. A group of 6 bandits will ambush the Warden on a hilly river crossing. A trio of archers will rain arrows from the hill, while 3 melee bandits attack from the only path leading up.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
- Depending on their equipment, the bandits will use the following:
Sunder Arms (Bandit leader only.)
Critical Strike (Bandit leader only.)
- The archers' Scattershot can be very damaging when chained, so make sure to disrupt their shooting. Paralysis Explosion is the best, as spells like Mass Paralysis or Blizzard will require too much time, while Glyph of Warding offers no protection from it. Fireball or even your own Scattershot will also suffice.
- As in the The Long Road encounter, try not to send party members uphill to engage the archers, because of the traps. Also, once they have used up their Scattershot, they will be little more than a distraction for you.
