The krag dweller appears to be a cross between a troll and elemental rock.  It towers over 8 feet tall with massive limbs.  Jet black hairs grow between the plates of its brown scaly hide while long razor sharp fangs and claws provide the krag dweller with all the weapons it will ever need.  Even darker than the blackest night, its eyes reveal the smouldering malice within.

Hunting strategies

If you can hide they are easily ambushed by waiting for them to sniff and then ambushing. They have a slow roundtime for their level and you can often two-for-one them. They appear to be geared toward the more physical classes, unlike their krag yeti cousins which can be hunted well by all classes.

Krag dwellers:

It is recommended to gain advantage by using unbalance, which knocks them down and gives you a bit of time to get damage in before they stand up again. This makes it easier for ambushers to strike the head or eyes.

Other information

Krag Dwellers can collapse into a dangerous boulder and roll around.

With great poise and balance, you leap at just the right moment to dodge the boulder as it careens recklessly by!
The boulder comes to a sudden stop and rises into the form of a krag dweller!

Krag Dwellers natural armor is equivalent to plate with 15 CER of padding[1]
