As Sebille, I'm obviously going to kill the Shadow Prince as that's my main quest. But why does the Tree need to die? If I become the new tree, do I end my game as a tree then? I killed Alexander but then had to kill Sallow Man too as he attacked us and tried to make us swear fealty to the Shadow King, but we survived and didn't have to thank goodness. Sallow Man is very tough, constantly hits team with Plagues and curses, which seem to renew each turn, and he has tons of AP. Though it's offered quite a bit in many talents, Poison is usually useless since many enemies are undead like him, which is stupid and irritating, as I have Fane in my party for lockpicking. At least he can go through all of the poison traps all over the game w/o problems, and can even manage Deathfog, since he's already dead. And you can't even heal him properly as it'll hurt him instead unless you use something that skips him like Healing Wave. First Aid will injure him, which is dumb since he still has 'vitality' which is what it's meant to restore.
