So, I've noticed this a few times, and had other people complain about the same... We just never got around to writing here. Is there any chance the chosen of gruumsh in Amia Frontier could be taken down a peg or two? Ever since the mage changes, he seems to have gotten more difficult... I'm not sure why, since he should be unaffected, but he was affected, in some way. Pretty sure of it. In particular, his fireball spell. For example, today, he hit me with 51 damage. This means, if he rolled high on everything, he could be ECL 9. But he hits around 40-50 pretty commonly. And at the level you do him, (25 xp per orc, which is level 5), a character who tries to do him will be killed in or two hits. And he has multiple casts, and hastes himself. The combination means even when expecting it, and trying to heal, he kills you. Ever since the mage changes, I don't think I've had a single character not die to him solo. And for being the boss of an area that gives so little xp, he seems a bit OP...

Related: I totally understand if it's completely IC, but does killing the "Chosen of Gruumsh" after your first quest of killing rats or delivering packages really make sense? Isn't he more likely a "Chieftain of Gruumsh" in name?

Just something that always nagged at me. If the orc is simply calling himself the Chosen of Gruumsh, cool. Otherwise, it seems like Gruumsh is out here making HD 10 Orcs his Chosen and having to replace them every other day. >_>

More like, replace him every 10 minutes, in some cases, lol.

Seriously though, I always would have RP it as "he's a cleric of Gruumsh"... We'll he's not a cleric, but something like that. But sometimes, stuff doesn't make too much sense. Like why there are so many things to kill. Or why event mobs haven't driven out all the normal mobs by now.

Ran through on my paladin last night, he is still indeed Chosen of Gruumsh and uses pretty powerful spells for an area meant for lower levels.

Well, it might still need to be updated or finished, but it is going to be fixed.
