A great troll, mighty of limb and plated with thick scales that resemble lightly rusted iron, especially in their hardness.

“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

Iron trolls are the largest and most exaggerated of the trolls. Their metal flesh regenerates quickly, and they can both give and take the most abuse in combat. Fortunately, they move slowly, and apart from partial fire and ice resistance have no other distinguishing features.

Tips & Tricks

  • If you can comfortably melee a deep troll, you can probably manage one of these. Any ranged character should simply kite it.
