Skeletons early game are great because all of their missions can be won by running away, and you still get paid.
Embrace the proper mercenary mentality of the grab-and-dash
Tried that yesterday. Had the event where I could either just take the required Item or take a Crypt Cleaver too. I was greedy. The next thing I know is my band of merry misfits is facing 12 ancient legionaires. Did an orderly retreat and kept the cleaver but did not finish the quest objective. Ended up aborting the mission.
Did it not work because of the cleaver event or because they fixed it in general?
