A stooped troll with dark skin, the cave-dwelling deep troll often travels in packs.

“Buckshank bold and Elfinstone,
And more than I can mention here,
They caused to be built so stout a ship,
And unto Iceland they would steer.

They launched the ship upon the main,
Which bellowed like a wrathful bear;
Down to the bottom the vessel sank,
A laidly Trold has dragged it there.”
-George Borrow, _Lavengro: The Scholar, the Gypsy, the Priest_. 1851.

Useful Info

Deep trolls are an advanced type of troll that usually roam in packs, accompanied by deep troll earth mages and deep troll shamans. Although they're less deadly individually than iron trolls, these can still deal significant damage, especially when they manage to surround you or when affected by the Might Other and Haste Other spells of their shamans. They can be most commonly found in the Depths and the Vaults.

Tips & Tricks

  • Their numbers are their only unique trait. Fight them in corridors, or at least avoid being surrounded. If there's a deep troll earth mage present, however, don't expect rock walls to be much use in funneling opponents.
  • Take care of their magic-using brethren first, before they have a chance to buff their allies to devastating amounts of damage output. Area-of-effect spells are particularly helpful here.
