Well... that was fun.

I had done almost all of the Slavers' semibosses before, while I was juggling my dungeon master books and my EotN NM points. Forgewright I had done after the accident in the Snowmen dungeon - so there was only Duncan left.
I had accepted the Zaishen bounty for him, thinking that it might be manageable.
Livia brought her own pet, since she hadn't used her Swap last time in NM anyway.
So it was. It had looked quite a bit hairy at the first mob (not enough minions on my side or something), but after that, it all went remarkably well. Even a triple aggro of Restless Dead was no problem, same for a double aggro of Restless Dead and a group of Summit.
However, cleaning the chamber of spirits is just boring. Alright, I overdid it by pulling them all really out of the room, into the corridor. The furthest ones were down the first set of stairs outside of the chamber. I did that so that I could pull the other spirits in peace without getting attacked by 30 mad spirits.
I died once while doing so; that was because after one hour of spirit pulling I had forgotten that there was still 1 Restless Dead in the way, and he bodyblocked me. Ogden was away at that time.
So, I have done now what I swore never to do - a Slavers' Exile in a HM dungeon master book. And it didn't even suck too badly. Crazy.
WoC Minister Cho HM is worse.
Also, I don't understand how the morale boost works in there. I didn't notice any boss creatures; I didn't use DP removers or Morale Boosters; and yet, there they all sit on +10% Morale. Some of them had died during the first few Summit encounters.
What's more - I am positively sure that I was as -7% when the Restless Dead had killed me. And afterwards, I was at -5%. The 50xp that you get for killing a Restless Dead don't remove 2% of the DP.
Are Restless Dead bosses or something?
