I really don't like how you have to beat 8 of them because they are hard and you can only battle 1 at a time

I dunno about that. Buffaloons hit pretty hard and frequently and Bumbaloons are even worse.

Most players find themselves making a run to the Life Fountan after every encounter to revive one of their squishies that got pounded into green jello. If Buffaloons /Bumbaloons fixate on one target, it's a good chance they will take that character out in one or two rounds..

I just got to that quest. They're pretty tough. Usually to beat them I'll first gang up on the one bumbaloon, then have my companions spread out and attack them while I hang back and buff them. I've had quite a few close calls, and I lost once. (I got some of my less trained companions there though.) Anyone else have good strategies for them?

Here is a prior thread that has several good suggestions.

I hate this quest. Everytime we fight, we take a beating. No matter who I put in there, we end up dead.

I agree

Those Bumbaloons are being absolutely brutal on my companions and my

I also had trouble with this quest in CR, although with enough effort, it is possible. I would try focusing on one at a time, although it's only a suggestion. If you have enough dodge (what Swashbucklers are good for), I think it would be a bit less stressful.
