Currently playing through SoD on Core difficulty without any script mods a la SCS or Tactics. I surrendered Bridgefort, leading to The Barghest showing back up during the attack on Dragonspear with a bunch of cronies.
My strategy for dealing with them involved a few blasts from a wand of fear, which they summarily ignored. Most didn't save - their little circles went yellow - they just behaved exactly as they would otherwise. The warrior-types all attacked like normal, and The Barghest and his orc companion both used Enrage to de-fear themselves. The worst offender was the rogue, who continued to go invisible and backstab at will. The only one who behaved like I'd expect was the priest, who started a few spells but never successfully cast (the mage always saved, so I'm not sure if he might have had the same issue).
Is this a known issue? It seems like they're scripted to just walk through an otherwise effective use of crowd control, which isn't exactly fair to the player.
