A couple days ago, I was stupidly traveling at night, trying to get to the Southwest of the Gransys, try to do some killing quests for a couple notice boards. At the same time, I had to get to some waypoint for one quest I took from the Duke.
Now to go southwest, you have to go through a bit of woods with wolves in them. Which is fine, then a bit of a ascending path between a cliff, at the top there is always a big ass boulder, two smaller ones. And they always get triggered at a certain height. Before I usually try to find an opening at the side of the path while dashing up the hill. Have my pawns take the damage. But now, since my physical resistance is so high. I just face that boulder head on.
After that boulder a couple Bandit Parties, but nothing to be afraid of. Now down the hill to the right, right after you go up the narrow cliff path, there’s a big forest. Within that forest, there’s upwards of 15 Saurians resting in the brush or on the random rock formations. And when you touch one of them. All of them in the immediate area respond. So I just went ahead and just started killing them.
This was not a good idea. Maybe after about 5 Saurians died, my pawns were just shouting Chimera. I was so confused, until a quest popped up saying “Ambush!” - Slay your enemies! I turned my camera, and a Chimera jumped at me and took out a third of my health. A little bit into this hectic battle, a Skeleton Lord came out of nowhere and started manhandling my party. Took a while to get my barrings. But 15 long minutes later, they were dealt with, got some extra gold. And the sun was finally coming up.
Note to self: Use the camera often.
