Was hoping this would have been fixed by now, but apparently it hasn't.
Just so the dev's know, completing any saga involving those three quests right now will be a difficult chore on EN, where the cultists have CR14, but the dogs have CR34, and the mid boss(marideth) had CR 38 and ~35000 hit points. And this was solo. I stopped after that, because I knew I would't finish the quest before I had to leave. Point is, that it's a very sad state for what i think of as a fun quest chain.
