How does that possibly happen?! I'm super confused.

Oh, turns out they have slashing resistance. (Figured that out on my second playthrough.)

Yeah, maybe don't do that.

Maybe they should use something other than imps, imps have resistance to nonmagical weapons and should also have immunity to fire and poison as all devils do
