Community Question: No Death Run Flop or Not?
Hi Beamdog Community,
Recently I've been trying to complete a run on insane mode with a dual classed Fighter/Thief (Assassin/Fighter) with maxed out PIPs for crossbow, fashioned as a pseudo Blackguard/Archer. The campaign was more or less successful until I reached a staged ambush battle, the one that drops arbane's sword. Being of a Lawful Evil alignment my character could cast Horror, Larloch's Drain and, Vampiric Touch. Casted a horror that hit every foe except the enemy mage. The mage casted blur through a sequencer. Took a shot or two with a crossbow then the mage started casting. Upon reflecting I anticipated that the attack would be a lighting bolt and hit with a quick Larloch's drain to disrupt the spell. It hit, however, the mage CONTINUED CASTING one-hitting my Fighter/Thief.
Incensed I replayed the battle instead immediately deleting the file. Using the same tactics and this go around the enemy mage was affected by horror. While running frantically it managed to cast a lighting bolt hitting my Fighter/Thief once again when it should've been incapacitated for all intents and purposes. My question to the community, was my character's defeat legitimate or should it be overlooked on account of faulty mechanics in that given sequence?
