I pointed out earlier that my 16 light monk can run around Vale of Twilight by himself and with his Ivy Wraps + Jitz in Fire Stance be at full health 99% of the time. Nothing there gives him any trouble.
But when I go there with 2 friends, who each bring a hireling along, then I suddenly can't keep my health up at 100% without either using wholeness of body or fists of light. I guess this is because the enemies have more hp, but do they hit harder also?
It's just frustrating, because if the game wants to encourage grouping, I should be able to kill enemies at least equally efficiently as without the group. But instead it's actually harder on me.
Is the game "working as intended" in cases like this?
