I was playing against the Arena in Fort Joy Ghetto.
My rogue used chloroform to put the dog to sleep. The enemy mage decided that it was a good idea to throw flaming daggers on the dog to wake it up.
Needless to say, the dog woke up and lost 1/3 of its health from all those fire.
I know the enemy was pretending to be smart. Next time, how about use that tiny little wand to wake up the dog instead of using one the strongest early game fire spell?
