Huge and dangerous, the hill troll towers above even a tall giantman.  Grey skin so thick that it serves quite well as armor covers most of the troll, with tufts of thick hair sprouting here and there like weeds between cracked stones.  A hideous grin splits its face displaying fangs crusted with dried blood and less guessable matter.  No light of intellect glows in its narrow piggish eyes.  The lust for slaughter and thirst for blood are what drive this hulkish beast's existence.

Hunting strategies

Hill trolls are particularly susceptible to fire attacks, even when compared to other trolls. Using fire flaring weapons or fire based spells when hunting them will make them easy prey for just about any character.

Other information

Hill trolls like many other members of the troll family creatures are able to regenerate missing or injured body parts and lost health.

A hill troll's flesh wounds regenerate some.
A hill troll's left leg regenerates and looks much better.

Hill trolls spawn in several different equipment configurations.

  • Twohanded sword and full leather. (Badlands ravine near the Abandoned Inn)
  • War mattock and leather breastplate. (Badlands ravine near the Abandoned Inn )
  • Spear and wooden shield. (Badlands gully, near the Colossus). Their natural armor is ASG 11 studded leather equivalent
  • Spear and studded leather. (outside the Abandoned Inn)
  • Twohanded sword and augmented breastplate. (outside the Abandoned Inn)
  • War hammer, studded leather and reinforced shield. (The Slope, Old Mine Road)
  • Cudgel, full leather (Hidden Vale)

Hill trolls have two attack strength boosters preceded by either a bellow (+25 AS) and/or a snarl (2x level AS). The snarl messaging does not always result in an AS increase.
