I went into Stalwart briefly (ONCE I fingered out I could go there before Cragholdt) and misplayed the fire business so I reloaded a save and went on to finish the Cragholdt castle. My brief visit to Stalwart yielded that it was fairly easy to beat the ogres at level 10 but I took note on what to do with saving those people in the fire for when I went in for real. I will say at level 11 the battle with Concelhaut at the castle wasn't easy but I beat him on the first try, then I got the Siege Of Cragholdt achievement, quite rewarding on the Hard level (and the loot WOW)! But as far as the level imbalance at Stalwart, might be a good "vacation" to plow through some enemies for a change .
UPDATE: It's been a plow, but you run into a big rock once and a while. I'm trying to decide whether I want to go on to the Adra now (the whole team has reached level 12 now).
