Large, brutish and imposing, trolls are truly formidable creatures that are very hard to kill. Their home is the The Trollfens, where they dwell amongst the eerie swamps. They wield a huge club that deals vast amounts of damage and they are able to perform a stun attack (identical to that of the orcs) which risks knocking back and stunning the player for a few seconds. They also possess a high amount of health and armor which grants them great survivability – giving them even more chance to deal lots of damage. Dangerous enough alone, trolls are commonly found close together, and sometimes even in small groups around campfires. Trolls have little trouble beating the player to a pulp when in groups, making encounters with them even more dangerous.
To top this all off, trolls must be killed using a weapon which deals fire damage (the last hit to connect which kills it must be with a weapon that deals flame damage.) Otherwise, they will simply "Regenerate" after death, allowing them to rise again at full health and fight as many times as they wish. Whether or not they will regenerate is indicated by a message in the combat log saying "Troll begins regenerating!".
"Trolls are an animated mass of cursed flesh. They take a hominid form and employ weapons, even mimic other hominids' behavior, and have developed the senses of sight and smell. But by cutting through them, you won't find organs or even bones, just more green, dense flesh, similar to frozen meat in hardness. As soon as it's damaged, it begins to regrow and melts together again." --LoreMaster DavidBVal
