    [​IMG] I hate Xvarts and their annoying little battle-squawk. The popular Cloakwood ettercap/sword spider combo is also a pain in the arse. I used to hate Basilisks until I met Korax :evil:

    I hate Skeletons... They receive so less damage from range attacks. They where a pain in the ass for the Shadowcouncil.

    Yes, and has been resurrected once before. ;)

    Anyway, I'd vote for kobold commandos. They're just plain annoying, and dangerous too! And there's many of them! Most of the other monsters are at least fun to fight...

    I can't decide between Battle horror and Greater Basilisk.

    Bassilisk are annoying indeed. But normally I like the monsters that are hard, for the fights are challenging. What I really hate are the small creatures that you easilly can beat, but you still have to kill. Some examples are Hobgoblins, Xvarts and Taslois and Skeletons most.

    Im sort of surprised that no one said the wyverns I'll admit that they are easy in standard engagements but when you get jumped by 2 of them traveling in cloakwood and one of them poisions you mage it can really suck.

    I'm surprised the Basselisks get so many votes. You only need to protect one fighter, send 'em in, and everyone else can take them out from range no trouble. (Even a second fighter or two are fine since they only ever attack the first one you send in).

    I was always disappointed when there were none left, SOOO much easy xp.

    Kobold bloody commandoes though! That maze where they kept responing. AARGHHH. I hated that bloody thing! Took ages to get through that.

    those fu#!ng kobolds commandos, especially in firewine dungeon, they re so many that slows my computer, and because of that my party began to attack them when I die. Fortunately my new pc has more memory, and doesn't slow.

    Also the last group of warriors before sarevok's group is really difficult

    Right now (Ch.2, Gnoll Stronghold)..

    Toughest enemies have been wimpy little human mages who cast Horror, Improved Invisibility, Melf's and Magic Missile. Even when my Ranger/Cleric connects, it doesn't seem to disrupt their spellcasting.. damn.

    [​IMG] Hehe, Greater Basilisk anyone?

    But for the one map where there ARE a dozen of basilisks there's always this "Torax" or "Corax" or whatever, this ettercap (?).

    his name is Korax the Ghoul....

    Bassilisks are annoying cause of the Paralization, but with Korax... or other tactics (potion that protects you from pasralization)... But Bassilisk are worth at least lots of XP, so it's worth fighting them. That why I dislike the groups of Skeletons etc, they are annoying and give almost no XP too...

    Well that Korax always attacked me after a while.

    Kobolds are most boring, but I hate those sirens (poison arrows, invisibility, charm) and my favourite:
    Carrion Crawler - I hated when searched area with one character and found this fella wich always holded my warriors, he is my hated one :)
