Dire Troll Blitzer
Although dangerous and unpredictable, the powerful dire trolls serve their trollkin allies in a variety of battlefield roles. The dire troll mauler is a creature of savage simplicity, devastating enemies with nothing more than its gigantic fists and unearthly strength. The dire troll blitzer totes a rapid-fire slugger cannon and its pyg gunner into combat on its back, adding a lethal spray of lead to the crushing blows of its mighty fists. The dire troll bomber hurls barrels of explosives at the enemy before pulverizing them in melee combat.

Thoughts on Dire Troll Blitzer
Dire Troll Blitzer in a nutshell
The Dire Troll Blitzer is the cheaper of the Troll ranged heavies because it carries a rapid fire gun rather than two big bombs.
Combos & Synergies
- Captain Gunnbjorn with Guided Fire makes it pretty accurate.
- The Hunters Grim give it Snipe and a to-hit buff for a turn - exactly what it needs.
Drawbacks & Downsides
- if you want a ranged heavy in Trollbloods get a Dire Troll Bomber: it has a bigger threat range, hits harder, has medium AOEs. The only advantage the Blitzer gets is its Dual Attack and that it's cheaper.
- With its low RAT you need to boost to hit at range other than against hard targets.
Tricks & Tips
- Charge in and use the guns to strafe the enemy support.
Comparison to Mk2
Little change - Other than that it could accept Far Strike from an Impaler.
