Thanks, Nick. That's very good to know. In particular, it turns the "paralysis" curse into almost a no-op, rather than certain death. Which is what I thought, but it's good to be sure.

I can't speak to the characters that kill Morgoth using lots of criticals (e.g. xorzac). That route seems to be the most effective one. However, I can speak to the "brute force" method, which I...
