|@Drogtash (p Laeren here) it doesn't come through in the log, but Laeren is a bash mage combo, so his block isn't super strong. And Slayah is 90% warrior, so neither is his. Given that, I feel doubling up on combo blocks is reasonable.
Upon a couple day's reflection, I definitely agree that we could have managed the mob situation better. If this ever happens again, I think the play is to have one caster spam all n, quake those orc mobs dead, then rest of group comes all n and rescues that caster insta (and then resets/regroups there). That would have dramatically diminished their ability to use the prison rooms, and increased our tactical advantage (leaving the cave trolls and dire wolves for ping ponging). But hindsight is 20/20, this fight developed super fast and kudos to Slayah for his balls out style. We didn't use any skype or group manager, and of course it's nonarrate, so I think our team coordinated well.
Separately, I don't quite share everyone's confidence that we were going to lose the 3v2 inside prison. I think Slayah and I had a chance there - the orcs were already low and we were (worst case) trading bashes evenly (it's not shown in the log but Laeren was able to bash Trevis at least once). If I had played better I would have disengaged and tried to bash or interrupt Daki some, then it would just be a bash or rescue contest. Maybe a single orc would be left standing, low, and then Mance would have cleaned up outside.
