Mulg the Ancient

Trollblood Dire Troll Character Heavy Warbeast

As reputedly the most ancient and ferocious dire troll ever to walk Caen, Mulg has become increasingly dangerous and tenacious over the centuries. Envious of trollkin sigils of power, he ordered runes carved into the stony flesh of his back depicting his many great deeds and ancient history. Mulg can focus his inhuman rage into these runes to stifle the power of enemy beasts.

Thoughts on Mulg the Ancient[edit]

Mulg the Ancient in a nutshell[edit]

Mulg is the Trollbloods biggest basher who neither has nor needs an animus-based damage buff. Which means that he's absolutely great if you either want just one heavy to do your hitting or you already have a Dire Troll Mauler or Rök in your army. Simple and hard hitting Mulg can do his job very effectively.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • He's slow.
  • Unlike his rivals no damage buff - so no turning lights into credible threats or allied heavies into Colossal-wreckers

Tricks & Tips[edit]

  • Screen him. He won't get the charge off on his own merits.

Comparison to Mk2[edit]

Mulg got savagely nerfed from the biggest beatstick on a large base in the game to just good. His protective fit in Mk2 was nuts.
