The lesser minotaur is an ugly, brutish looking beast.  Taller than most average men, the minotaur has a bull-like appearance while his muscular body is humanoid with thick arms and broad shoulders.  The lesser minotaur feet end in hooves that rattle the ground with every step.  Despite his barbaric features, a great intelligence is reflected in the depths of his eyes and mannerisms.

Hunting strategies

Lesser minotaurs have a strong resistance to combat maneuvers, similar to krag dwellers. They can use the mstrike ability for three simultaneous swings of their greataxes. They have the ability to release an AS boosting battle cry similar to a massive troll king frothing or shan warrior yipping. Like other minotaurs they have a deadly charge maneuver, however they use it infrequently.

Lesser minotaurs can be stunned normally. As their magical warding is relatively poor, they are easy prey to spells such as Blind (311) and Mind Jolt (706).

The lesser minotaurs outside the Labyrinth use two handed weapons, so anyway way to remove a limb, such as Limb Disruption (708) or ambushing, will disable them. However, the minotaurs inside the Labyrinth carry shields and use Shield Charge, which can be quite deadly.
