Cruel intelligence gleams in pale yellow eyes set beneath massive brows. Among the largest of its kin, the cave trolls towers above most creatures, massive muscles ripple beneath its grey stone-like skin, adding to its aura of intimidation
Not much is known about the origin or culture of the cave trolls. Not many scholars get the chance to study them up close, and trying to ask them directly tends to end messily for the investigator. About the only thing anyone can say with any degree of certainty is that they are big, they are mean, and their stone-like hide makes them more inclined to be annoyed by most attacks than actually wounded.
Stone Strike hitting me often with SW & SUF up. Makes hunting here in the long term tough my current level. Evasion 281. 39 agility 39 reflex.
Tingle disarms them with minimal casts (prep 10-15)
Relatively decent box droppers. 201 Disarm 39 agi 39 reflex and can open careful 9/10 without incident.
Hard cap Evasion at 432 or 433. Hard cap Debilitation at 453.
Does not teach Stealth from using HIDE at <263 ranks.
8/7/17 - Hiding pretty successfully and teaching with 184 stealth. Evasion not moving past 1/34 at 393. Weapons moving... slowly.. at 277... These are pretty easy at 390 evasion/367Parry/386shield - barely hitting me with 4 on me.
General Assessment: Can handle 4 at melee with the above listed ranks and stats with glancing hits. Eventually(~45m) I would need to leave due to bleeding wounds.
- A cave troll stomps the ground heavily with its massive foot as it completes its incantation!
- A tiny stone pebble rips itself free of the earth, shatters into small shards and hurtles toward you!
Cannot peer from room to room in this area due to darkness. Special light is not needed to see in the room you are in. Shield defense recommended in this area.
Note: Cave Trolls can also be found in Dirge in the Wicked Burrow Mine past a rope and ladder requiring approximately 160 un-bonused climbing skill.
10/11/18 - @171 Athletics and I still can't climb in there.
