This seems indeed the best option. Unfortunately, because there is no warning about these tough meanies, most people, myself included, think them as an anomaly. They are just the correspondents of the minibosses in the mainstream Arpgs.
There is much to be learned about this game. It is interesting though that after my first hours of playing I started modding it more and more. After I got some experience and undestanding I started deleting the mods alltogether.
This is a great game. I only hope someone who has the time and knowledge writes a full guide or maybe a FAQ with regards to the most frustrating issues one can meet.
Thank you and have a great weekend
