    In a different thread, Kyronix stated this:

    Looking at uoguide (stratics hunter's guide seems to be unavailable), I see that Devourers of Souls have 9500 fame. Compare this with liches (8000), lich lords ( 18000) and rotting corpses (12500). Devourers of Souls are pretty tough. I mean, lich lords can pack a punch but can still be killed pretty quickly. Rotting corpses can be camped until your weapon is in pieces.

    Devourers of Souls, on the other hand, pack even more of a punch than lich lords. I am not suggesting they should be nerfed. Only that perhaps the fame should be tweaked to match their difficulty. I'm not sure just how much of a factor the fame difference makes, but considering how many of them are scattered throughout Doom, and considering how they're tough as balls, would it be necessary to adjust their fame a bit (maybe somewhere in the 14000-18000 range), or am I just crazy?
