Types of enemies and monsters in the Longwatch Falls
Lagufaeth Sidewinder - This enemy is attacking from distance. Because of that, he has small amount of health points. However, he deals great damage. He doesn't use spells as frequently as other lagufaeths.
Lagufaeth Broodmother - The leader of the nearby lagufaeths. She has very large amount of health points and she deals more damage that regular lagufaeths. She can heal her companions. Because of that, you should focus the attacks of the whole team on a single enemy and eliminate them one after another.

Other important information related to Longwatch Falls
Be careful when traveling through the Longwatch Falls, especially through the western and central parts of the map. There are large groups of enemies there. Those enemies aren't dangerous when they are alone, but in larger group they might prove challenging even for a strong party. One of the solutions is moving in stealth mode, this will allow you to check the enemy strength before fighting.
You should take interest in the dwarven ruins on the north and in the sword in the rock (M3,6). If you have a character that fights with two-handed weapon you can easily obtain one of the best swords in the game. More details can be found in the description of The grey sleeper quest.
Avoid the cave on the south (M3,5). Go there only after meeting one of the two conditions: you have the His better half quest active and you have 17 Resolve points or you have the party at least at level 13.
