How to kill/cheese a troll ?

Postby AriZona » Fri Sep 25, 2020 2:35 pm

Could somebody suggest strategies to kill a troll (upper levels; let's say L1-5)? And, what would be the recommended stats?

Thanks

My friend once almost successfully cheesed a troll by fighting next to minehole ladder and going to another level to close openings. But as foreshadowed by the word "almost" he died because at one point the troll decided that it couldn't path to my friend and used the cave-in special attack. Friend was KO'd and executed.

If I understand correctly you are suggesting to use melee attack it? Would be safer to use a bow? Old-fashioned safety is still my concern :)

yes - I am also curious about hearing some general guidance on stats...

Pretty sure I couldn't solo even a level 1 troll in a *fair fight* even with 1.2k+ stats and q300 items. You'll probably have to run around at least a little, no matter the stats, unless you want wounds+ugly damage on your armor.

If you're decent enough at running/drinking you can probably use a hunter's bow.
Either way, melee or ranged, it would be equally dangerous lol

If you have low stats, I can't stress this enough: it depends so much if you have both UA and MC fighters
Trolls pussy out real fast when they have high openings, they stop attacking and start restoring like crazy. We used to spam red+blue when we were weak, but we only had one MC fighter (quick barrage for red opening). The day he couldn't come I got wounded really bad, cause we couldn't open red fast enough so the troll kept hitting us.

If you guys have high stats and nice b12's, you can probably just spam uppercut+sideswipe. But keep in mind that 4 people with 350 stats are probably much better than 3 people with 600 stats or whatever, you get the idea :D

Also random tip if you don't know yet, the troll will always attack the closest target, so push yourself real close to his hitbox when you want to tank.

if you have a shallow lake close enough to the troll (if it's not just next to you perhaps you could just take a lot of water and sprint, maybe even with an alt if you're not too confident about this) you could use it with a rowboat or snekkja to stack points and then raise opening once, swim away and reduce openings on yourself, repeat, and then use damaging moves once opening on troll is high enough

of course the lake must be big enough(10x10 might not be too comfortable even if you are very fast) and with a good enough shape (so you can keep going in circles or in any way that makes you able to stay away at all times)
