Think about it, although they do 10 damage, you had 11 of them. You could do 110 damage to one unit. But the big mistake with your unit control was Gryphons on the lich. You could have killed some ghouls for free exp. Then worked on the next target. You are right about the paladin, you could have saved his ass with Staff. Took me a while to figure out how that item works though . But its a handy micro tool. Also, repair them after most confrontations, weakened gyros are easy pk for the enemY! So don't beat yourself up too bad, we all make mistakes, and you are learning from them too .
