Clever has higher INT.
For flare one would think.
One thing I will say about hunting is this:
Ebonmarrows are probably my favorite area in the game for hunting. Not because they're easy. Not because the exp/gold ratio is great. No, it's because they're difficult enough to require attention and caution, but they're not complicated. There's no worrying about the multiple-invisible-aggressive orc assassins pounding me flat with something like 4 afflictions/second, or curing difficulties, or diagnosing after every one. Nope. Just enough damage to force me to play cautiously so an unlucky offbalance attack doesn't kill me.
I also really like Iaat. I think the reason is because nothing there breaks shield, so that while it does plenty of afflictions along with enough damage for 3+ aggro creatures to pose a risk to me, it's possible to clear it cautiously without expending a whole lot of effort.
I'd really like to see more things like this and less "The only way to make this challenging is by making it rail you with formaldehyde."
"On the battlefield I am a god. I love war. The steel, the smell, the corpses. I wish there were more. On the first day I drove the Northmen back alone at the ford. Alone! On the second I carried the bridge! Me! Yesterday I climbed the Heroes! I love war! I… I wish it wasn’t over."
