I’ve heard that happen to another player too, who bee-lined directly to the Oblong. Because of that, you miss out gaining experience from doing sidequests, which means fighting the Gnasher can be much harder depending on how you’ve built your character (this situation won’t happen to all character builds). The solution is to leave the Oblong (or reload an earlier save game before the Oblong) and do some sidequests first to gain more experience and better equipment, then return to kick the Gnasher’s butt.
