Yep, which also ties into all my grumbling about shades - those things might be a bigger hazard than was originaly thought. Shade infested maps are much, much easier to do if you take away their blink.
Not complaining about something being difficult, just something being visibly more difficult than stuff in related tiers. If it takes entanglement and a vicious reward on hand to deal with something, while other approaches can fruitlessly bang their heads against the wall for ever, something is messed up. Entanglement is good enough when it isn't removing a distinct hazard - it's one of the strongest boons out there.
EDIT: I just did Grimm's Grotto with EM Codex Halfling Priest. Boss was Medusa, and I didn't even take all that much from EM. And early clearance or two and entanglement spam for the entire bossfight, went unstoppable before the fight but didn't use either plantation or anything from the pactmaker. Medusa never got to retaliate anything, and I fireballed her to death entirely. Took dodge and whoopaz, didn't need it...
