Speaking of small islands in the middle of nowhere. I was wondering around, clearing some question marks when I ran into a treasure guarded my an Archgriffen. It had a red skull over it's head, but I saved and went for it anyway. I didn't go in prepared, so the first try I got close, but died. The second attempt, I went in using the right oil and bombs and wiped the floor with it. I go for the treasure, and it's one of those stupid notes with a key. I read the note and flag the quest (it turns out it's level 48) and go get the goods. It's a crappy saddle and some level 15 gear. I did this as at level 20. So not only should I not have won that fight, but the rewards should have been a hell of a lot better.
Hmm, I think there is a bug in the last patch that's causing all of my stats to be ten times higher than they should be. Right now, if my stats on the inventory screen are to be believed, I've got:
DPS - Silver Sword 7807
DPS - Steel Sword 5099
Armor - 224 (this one seems correct)
Sign Intensity - +1034%
Vitality - 24600/24600
I suppose that explains how I was able to kill that Archgriffin.
