I personally haven't tried every different method. 1000 gold is a bit steep for me. My favorite way is to start by chucking the explosive grenade you find in the barrel near Charles Brehgo. Usually takes out 60%+ of the HP of 2 of the gang, then simply cut them down melee. It really seems like a time-saver opposed to leveling up a bunch to be able to take them down straight. I don't really like Sogg Mead Mugg much so I always personally use this method though I'm sure his high melee damage helps with this early obstacle.
Yeah While the explosive grenade is a nice early loot to sell for sure, money isn't hard to get after awhile. and if the nade is thrown well it really shifts this fight in the players favor when you don't have really high persuade or have spent hours grinding.
If you are not playing as a Persuasion character, another creative way to take them down is to drop the Railroad Spikes for Lukan's 2 ogre to pick it up. They will then equipped it and do lower damage to you as a result.
