Alright, so it is.
Depends on how tall the wall is, but you’re right. Defending it helps a ton.
Talking about areal superiority its kinda hard to me to understand how actually bugbears could even move, because now Alma is Tier 2 and much faster, also she has Chameleon 1.. and during a night don't think anyone would see her even if they could.. what could they do? shoot a fireball? 1km+ ?or 1.5km+ ? also summon an air elemental vs a mage Tier 2 beast who nows deeper magics and is more magically powerful than Richto.
alma alone could devastate the Bugbear cam in an unexpected ambush.. still 200 arrows will bring her down. And quite easily. Though for scouting its super great.
Probably MV does not expect such a fast attack, should have learned after the quickening lightning beakon!
Should have started scouting already.
Her spells are no longer ranged than anyone elses and most low-level spells have low range. Being second tier doesn't change that, and that assumes she is second tier rather than a more advanced tier 1 dragontype.
Basically if she can hit them with a spell they can hit back. Their mages can hit back with powerful attacks of their own, their professionals can hit her with all sorts of specialized talents designed to help groups close the gap against powerful single opponents and their archers can hit her with arrows. Worse, they could focus on stuff that prevents her from flying off and/or limits her mobility, spells/talents that can't be avoided.
Take the 4 professional orcs vs 1 tier 2 wyrm that had 30-40 levels on them, similar to one Richter had a tough fight with earlier as an example of how an alma vs half a dozen professional bugbears fight could go.
The enemy know they are facing some form of lesser dragon, so no surprise when it shows up.
She probably will try attacking them, its just not clear that she can do enough damage to slow down or stop an invasion force.
Spoiler: When Elora was swearing fealty
At least we can now assume we know the third option, furthering chaos.
