So on Normal difficulty I cleared this a few days ago with 4 new (not perfectly equipped) characters and it was challenging but not impossible. Today, I try with another set of 4 new characters and am destroyed. Each of the four locations now has 4 - Monsters 3 - Barriers 1 - Ally 1 - Blessing 1 - Henchman Leng Spider IIR, this is a big change from what it was a few days ago. That combined with the standard 1's and 2's count as 0 and I have been crushed on four straight attempts. I'm actually considering giving up or just having to grind/farm until I have ultimate enough items to try and beat it. The four characters I have are Valeros, Lini, Ezren and Harsk.
