Correct. If you pick Cleric, you have to clear out some of those massive robots that are patrolling in the Alb base. They are, by far, the heaviest hitters in the game.@Corwin;: Which faction are you playing for (or, if you didn't join a faction, which one did you choose as partner for the sixth power)?
A was factionless in my first playthrough and chose the Berserks as partner. in that playthrough I only had to fight two huge robots sent by the Clerics. in my second playthrough I was Outlaw via Morkons and had to fight none at all. So you are probably Alp and/or Cleric?
