I totally agree. I did 4v4 with Malistaire and Jotun and it took ages to do Jotun. KI should really lower Jotun; i liked the challenge but if GH is supposed to be an all rounding level where you keep going back and forward to it and DS is supposed to be a build-up to fight the almighty Malistaire, they should lower it a bit!
As several people have stated, take out Jotun's brothers first in the dungeons on either side of him and then do his dungeon, that will leave him with only one regular grendel side-kick, no brothers.
Also, completing Grizzleheim used to be optional. There was nothing after it, so the battles were more challenging (I think the Ravenscar Coven is far more difficult than Jotun). Now that you have to complete it to move on to Wintertusk, KI has altered Jotun's dungeon to allow you to sneak past mobs. I managed to get all the way to him with none of the other grendels 'grabbing' me. The maze dungeon was the same. The other dungeon you have to fight several bosses to unlock the doors, but they are not hard. 2 level 40 characters had no trouble. I did all 3 dungeons in about an hour and a half and did not die or do any 'flee and port' tricks to move through.
Well i admit jotun is hard, and malistaire dont seem like it, but jotun is VERY wimpy now, back on test he killed a lot of people and yeah to me i think the winner would be malistaire, because he is still the main threat IN the game.
malistaire still is the biggest threat in the game, here are some reasons why: 1.if you followed the order dorrectly you should face the brothers by themselves, then once you gotten rid of them, you can fight jotun (who is with only 1 brother i think)
Tried that. Took me absolutely ages. Went to see Jotun. His brothers were still there.

so in my opinion Malistaire owns.
But Jotun is still more powerful! More life always is da BEAST! Like really, i did malistaire in about 30 mins(with two people). Yes, but jotun took me about an hour and a half(with three people). So hah!
Me and one other person killed Jotun in 15 minutes. I was level 50 and he was like 55.
I soloed Jotun as a lvl 45 Storm Wizard it took me about 5 hours. First, I beat his brothers and then it took me 5 attempts to beat Jotun. This so far has been the longest and most challangeing part of the game.
