I'd never ran the quest before and was a bit intimidated with all of the DoooOOO000oooOOO00MMM!! posts I keep seeing. I crafted myself an axiomatic burst heavy repeater of chaotic outsider bane and strolled in the door with my Arti, his trusty dog and a freshly printed contract for the services of Natasha Thorsten prepared to get wasted in seconds and...other than 1 hairy moment where the dog went nuts and pulled too many bad (good) guys and I had to rez Natasha, I pretty much walked through easily.
My toon is a 1st lifer and a Drow, which it seems a lot of people assume = gimp so if it wasn't that tough for me, why are there so many threads screaming for a nerf? It just doesn't seem much more difficult than others of its level. I went in expecting crushing defeat and left wondering what the big deal was.
