I know the last patch changed what happens with Shoal the Nereid so that now if you are soloing you get a save v Death at -2 and if you fail you are reduced to one hit point and are unconscious. However, I was wondering what then happens? Does Droth just show up and kill you before you can recover or is there some opportunity to heal before the ogre mage appears?
I'm asking because I am currently doing a solo, no-reload run and my save v death is currently 9, so taking into account the -2 modifier I've got less than a 50/50 chance of making it. Generally, when I am soloing I allow myself to cheat and take Rasaad along to get snogged by Shoal but this time I would like to do it by the book so I am trying to decide whether it would be best to skip the encounter entirely.
