- I try to wait near Second-watcher Heathstraw for the next wave of attackers.
- If you have an offensive soldier, instruct him or her to engage the enemy before you attack the Weak Southern Torch-bearer.
- Second-watcher Heathstraw has a better change of surviving if you engage the enemy before they get close enough to aggro him.
- If you are not able to do the encounters between waves of attackers, most of them can be put off until after Goilog is defeated, but before you talk to Second-watcher Heathstraw to end the skirmish.
