PC INFO: A troupe of 6-7 level six adventurers, heavy on Magic and Tanks, light on skill monkies.
INFO: Wetsig is the leader for a local bandit camp, being hired by the Warlock Trian to kidnap people for a handsome profit. Wetsig is a genius among trolls, but still only average by human standards. The Scrag knows his abilities and weaknesses and exploits his strengths. Wetsig is a troll fighter 1/ ranger1
ENCOUNTER: The PCs make it to the mud dome that is Wetsig's layer, there he sits in a man-made pond that is 120 feet in diameter and 30 feet down at its deepest. A wooden bridge connects the throne to the door. After a short dialogue Wetsig dives into the lake and attempts to take out the part of the bridge that is connected to the door (Since buoys keep the rest of the bridge afloat balance checks ensue). It then becomes a mostly underwater fight with the scrag Wetsig. Wetsig yields if dropped under half his HP in non-regeneratable damage (Fire or Acid). Otherwise he fights till incapacitation.
So is this encounter to hard, even for a boss fight? Would this be an average encounter for their party size, therefore not a strong boss fight? Is this encounter weak sauce?
The encounters previous to this have been pretty light, so they will be at pretty much full resources
The party now is only four party members
Level 6 Druid
Level 6 Warmage
Level 6 Monk
Level 6 Barbarian
This is not what I expected the players to make, but they are now fairly well-rounded.
The players themselves are also not very innovative, they are blasty characters who don't really think much about utility.
Also we are sticking MOSTLY to core with the exception of the Complete series.
