        I had 1 character talk to Him, during the conversation i swapped to another character and attacked him from stealth. it triggered a fight but as a 3vs4 where the primary scarecrow and the character he was conversing with did not participate. Clearing the additional 4 scarecrows with 3 characters is a much easier task. Triggering the fight had to be done from stealth, a normal attack brought everyone into the fight. I precast some peace of mind before going 4vs1 on the primary scarecrow and he went down easy.

          Tough fight, but a few tips. 1) Before fight starts position your Mage on the hill above the scarecrows 2) With your Mage use Teleport to move main Scarecrow towards Paladin camp - took 2 turns to get him there, but it brings the Paladin into the fight and keeps the Terrified effect from impacting your team 3) focus Physical Damage on the remaining scarecrows - it's low and 1 hit should remove it 4) and then keep them at bay w/ Knocked Down talents - helps to have 2 Warfare focused characters (Red Prince + Beast) and use plenty of Knockdown Arrows with your Archer I pretty much took turns knocking down scarecrows and the addition of the Paladin made killing the main Scarecrow easy.

            this is such a *****ing bull*****fight, everyone except 1 character become feared with no way of *****ing clearing it. Such a cheap bs status effect, just permanent and characters just stand there in place and *****ing eat it until they die. No saving throw, nothing. Can't clear mind***** because the ones that do know it are feared.

                I got stuck on this in honour mode because one of my party members instantly died in the first round. For some reason I couldn't clear terrified off my glass cannon with enrage or peace of mind and was down to two party members, so here's how I worked it out: 1) Teleported the main crow towards the paladin camp to keep the adds at distance. 2) Used Mosquito Swarm for physical damage as this isn't affected by evasion. 3) Hit the crow with Onslaught and got enough hits through the evasion aura to kill it. You can get this as a weapon skill from Lohars quest reward.

                  Solo mode just pre pot potion of strong will by combining a fire ele with an empty bottle and use spider legs to enweb him as he will use evade after wards and when he is enwebbed his evade had no effect so just spank the pain guy, rinse and repeat on little turds too

                    Reminder that peace of mind is useless unless you're saving an ally. Their aura instantly removes it and gives them terrified. Took us too many tries in tactician mode and were a level or 2 above their own, the fight is bull*****even if tacitcian mode is meant to be hard, but not bull*****Case and point; do not feel bad if you cheap them, they deserve to be cheaply killed.

                      I was able to win this fight at level 11 using the following party and strategy: Party: Main Avatar: Lizard/Enchanter/Elementalist build ( Ifan ben-Mezd: Ranger/Venomous Sentry build ( The Red Prince: Knight/Eternal Warrior build ( Sebille: Shadowblade - uses scoundrel and necromancy skills It's important to have access to the Clear Mind spell for at least two characters, or purchase this spell as a scroll. I setup my avatar, Sebille, and the Red Prince on the wooden platform, and made Ifan talk to the scarecrow. I immediately cast Clear Mind on Red and Sebille, then initiated the fight. The terrifying scarecrow ALWAYS casts Uncanny Evasion first, then Flight right after to the platform. Having Clear Mind on my damage dealers allowed them to immediately focus on physically assaulting him. The elementalist was able to do further physical damage through Restoration and Healing Ritual. This brought the scarecrow's HP down to single digits. I then had Ifan focus sniping him from afar. Due to him having higher accuracy, I was able to land at least 1 hit and kill him, thus putting an end to the terrifying aura. Then, I cast dome of protection since I have a custom lizard character, and focused on chipping away at the rest of the scarecrows. BTW, Clear Mind does NOT clear terrifying status once you've been afflicted by it. You have to keep up magic armor, otherwise, once you have this status, it's over. What really pissed me off is how low the enemy stats were, yet Lapidation and their physical attacks pretty much cleared off both my magic and physical armors. Frustrating, and took me 7 tries, but once I took the above strategy, I was able to beat this pretty quickly.

                        Put my ranged fighters on the deck next to his field, had sword fighter talk to him. Cast circle of protection to keep up magic armor during fight then focused fire on restless scarecrow. Enchanted scarecrows are annoying but without the boss around to terrify my party, aren't too bad to deal with.

                          Talk to him and then swap to another character and attack, it will let you fight the adds with your other party members without aggroing the undead scarecrow. He's considered an ally as long as you stay in the chat with him and he gives your party a +4 leadership bonus if you stand near him.

                            They killed Sibel and as I was fleeing they got Ifan, they have him in a vegetative state. Cursing him and killing him but not allowing him to die. Tis a sad fate.

                              This fight is hell. It took me 15 or so tries - point being: don't give up! I beat it on tactician with a group of 3 spellcasters and a warrior (and a physical damage summon) at level 12. Clever use of teleports, source skills, and knockdowns allowed me to kill the main scarecrow. As others have said, peace of mind scroll works, but be warned: only use it on a character immediately before their turn, otherwise the "terrified status" will be reapplied. Having a warrior with a super high initiative will allow you to knockdown the main scarecrow on your first turn, so try to find initiative gear or pots. Good luck!

                                  This page is worthless. "Make sure to use fire damage!" "Oh by the way they're pretty much impervious to magic." "Use spells to reverse terrified. Which ones? Who knows lol" come on yall the game's been out for months.

                                    I just summoned a Bone Widow before the fight and the first attacks by the scarecrow leader focused on her, send her away panicking. Leaving my four characters to kill it in the first round (mostly with spells, because evade.. Necromancy helped a lot).

                                      im a little over leveled for the fight so im not sure if that had something to do with it but i cast aid on him without talking to him cuz he was "restless" and first aid gives the rested buff and he just fell over dead before i could talk to him but i just found him while im finishing up some things in the reaper coast area so im around level 16-17 i might of just one shot healed him

                                        There is a small hill type area to the left of the scarecrow spot (basically btwn the scarecrows and driftwood). Move ur folks up there, and send one with high mobility to start the conversation / fight. As soon as it's that chars turn, run (Phoenix dive, flight, etc) that character up on the hill. Take out the main scarecrow as quick as possible to negate terror aura. Keeping magic armor up obviously helps till he's down. If others get too close, teleport them away with gloves / spell. Also incarnate champ is beastly for this fight (or almost any fight).

                                          Terror Aura is way easier to dealt with comparing to Evasion Aura, just split your party and keep regenerating Magic Armor on those who stand at the front

                                            What I did, I had a couple accessories that gave restoration skill, if you don't have it you can use scrolls. The easiest way (in terms of speed) is use whatever character you have with high hydrosophist points (increase amount of healing) on the scarecrow - healing can't be evaded. This will melt away his physical armor, then with my undead mage (necromancer + summoner) I cast shackles of pain, then drank a 330 hp potion dealing 330 damage to me AND the scarecrow. Then you can easily finished him off with your remaining teammate restoration skill/scroll. Another method is similar to BroekenNova's idea of casting peace of mind on the talker since buff don't decrease while talking.
