The party encounters Crabble-rouser in the the Tower in Ballymolloy. He is minding the place while the boss, Maeve, is away at the moment. He comments on the cowardice of humans to attack when the boss is gone, but is confident that he can take them on his own. They fight and Crabble-rouser loses.

Crabble-rouser's regular attack will do between 8-15 damage, depending on the character. His Sap spell also does 10-15 damage. He can also use StrongD which makes all attacks that turn do only 1-2 damage.

The party should be properly equipped with the best that Ballymolloy can offer. Herbs are also essential to defeating him. Maribel should use Sap twice on the monster to eliminate its defense. She should act as healer as her attack power is low. Kiefer should use Flame Slash in lieu of his regular attack, stopping only if the party desperately needs healing. The Hero should attack as well and use Buff on Maribel, stopping only if the party gets low on HP. Hanlon will also fight and do the most damage to the enemy. He will occasionally heal your party and use Sap on the enemy but don't rely on it.

-"I no longer get to ambush people and eviscerate them with my claws. Instead, they willingly come to gawk at me. Then I eviscerate them."

-"You appear to be a reasonable fellow. Let me out and I won't eat you."

-"Hmm, you looked bigger when we fought before."


-"No need to be crabby!"
