Cast invisible on your party except one which I will refer to here as the lure.

Before proceeding rest again make sure you cleaned everything out before the final room or the game will not let you rest consecutively. By resting again your mage / sorcerer now has another set of invisibility spells.

Place the lure just outside of the door that is locked when you speak with Yxunomei’s or when events trigger. Once events trigger three mages will materialize in the second room. The lure should probably be about mid room to avoid getting hit with a charm spell rendering the lure out of your control. Using this strategy you will most not likely get to talk with the Little Girl which is OK and will not break the game.

All of your invisible minions should now be at the lower left of the final room. Make sure you can see the Yuan-ti Elite with the red circle on the right. Have your thief set the trap in the lower left corner and without triggering any dialog. Your thief will materialize thus setting off the chain of events. After the thief sets the trap cast invisible again to avoid drawing the attention of Yxunomei or her minions.

After setting the trap and once events are in motion, lure Yxunomei’s minions as far away as possible. All of her minions will follow and all will be locked out of the rooms where you will fight Yxunomei. Once that door is locked and your lure is far enough away attack Yxunomei. You have time since invisibility does not expire. Save all of your +2 arrows and bolts for this fight. As for her other weaknesses, acid works and though Yxunomei apparently is strong versus fire minute meteors work as well as do other spells.

Your lure will die however as I’m writing I’m thinking to have your lure, after attracting Yxunomei’s minions, lock herself behind the farthest door closest to the floor entrance. I’m not sure how this will affect Yxunomei’s minions but you can experiment to try and save the lure from dying. If your lure dies I would not use an Elf for the lure as Elves require resurrection which is costs a king’s ransom.

After defeating Yxunomei you should find her minions scattered about. Find them and terminate as I imagine those Yuan-ti Elites and mages are good for X.P..

Enjoy the rest of this magnificent RPG.
