I can't decide. No new person is going to find this and be able to actually complete it. While it is a shocking amount of experience, the run is sufficiently hard that you aren't going to have new people actually explore that far. There are too many other things to see in the middle.
That said, I'd actually like to see this changed so that it has some kind of combat requirement if you choose to side with Buceth. Maybe you have to fight a guard or something who walks in on your conversation? That'd more or less close the loophole, and would even the quest out. Right now, my Feygard aligned character that I just started can't take the easy path because he could never compete with Buceth at level 5. If anything, I'd like to see the two factions actually be equal: either remove the fight with Buceth and have the character acquire "evidence" in some other way, or add a fight with a guard or some other character from Feygard.
