I've had some craptacular luck last night doing the boss bat quest. I had to fight 8 bodyguards to get to him. Looking through the wiki and its discussion pages, this seems to be a new (or previously unreported) high number. I'm posting this topic in this section of the forums, as it isn't really directly tied to scripting, isn't a bug, and doesn't seem like it would fit i the topic about monster item drops. It's just a bit of spading info.
