Maybe....I feel like Larian games typically have a fight order you have to figure out DOS2 was full of that.
I don't care you amazing you are at turn based strategy games, I dare you to walk straight into those scarecrows before leveling on other fights....

I feel like fIguring out the best order to handle encounters (by dying a lot) is part of the overall Larian strategy theme.
I kind of like that, but I maybe a weirdo.
