So, apparently bats and rats are zero threat to any labyrinth-delver who carries a torch. I can see a large conflagration keeping a wild animal at bay, but not a mere torch, regardless of what this rule.

Swarms do not engage in HTH combat.

But having two weapons and Staff IV lets the witch attack three rats per turn. (Note carefully the restriction on Staff IV that prevents this from being four rats per turn.)

It amounts to the same thing, since a rat or bat must be in the same hex as you to attack you.

In a one on one fight if you can put 8 hits on the foe before his DX order then your armor doesn't matter.

And when you fail to do so, you will almost certainly be thankful for a little armor. Just like when you’ve lacerated your leg on a mountain hike, you’ll be glad you were prudent enough to bring a first aid kit.
