Few points: When the litch army invaded the dungeon they should have gotten insane penalties!!!? Like -90% defense due to taking an army to dungeon... unless dungeon was too weak. Also Clauder could have survived after opening the casket if he would have "gone" for his profession trail immediately.. had like 0.5s to do it Randy- best fighter of the mists by a wast margin lvl 47 tier 2. masterwork equipment + master mage ... why he was not in the attack? why he was not protecting the barbicon?! with him on the ramparts barbicon would have had so much less loses of troops... Not sure how viable would this be but could Richter have taken his army & Mauler and hit bugbear camp? It should not be further than 20-30 miles, so doable in 1 day forced march.. also many captives would be taken and would "work" in the dungeon.. However in retrospect I probably would have tried going though the other dungeon first to get some boons, then hitting bugbears, now remember that we have the minor wonder portal, so if the bugbears are in the right direction we could even teleport 5 miles to the other portal.. reducing the distance to the bugbears.. Why cursed wand of stumbling was not used? in the attack in the 9th mausoleum level and In the defense of the Barbicon ??
