Agreed. Every enemy in this DLC is designed to piss you off as much as possible.
The infinite murkmen make exploration in the Dreg Heap full of tension, there's a SWAMP level (something literally everyone hates and yet is added to From games again and again). Angels do nothing but spam endlessly. The hollow bandits are always hiding somewhere trying to gank you, the poison hollows will kill you for no reason if you can't find them fast enough, and I don't even need to talk about the Judicators. Even the enemies that are fun to fight against, like the Ringed Knights, Harald Legion and Big Locusts, are always placed in groups to make it as unfair as possible. Combine that with Midir, a meme boss with 10000000 health, the looping maze in Shared Grave and the **** "puzzle" that can only be solved by google, this DLC is a big yikes.
It does have some highlights though, jumping down the Dreg Heap is always fun, both locations are beautiful af, Gael is a great final boss, the weapons and armor you find are really cool, and Lapp's quest is nice. I wish we could have met the Pygmy Lords though, they were clearly alive and well when you were there, just tucked away somewhere in the city.
