Mulg the Ancient
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
Mulg the Ancient in a nutshell
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
- He has a bond with all Doomshapers
- Like all other tough troops he loves the Krielstone
- Borka, Vengeance of the Rimeshaws likes his counter-chargers to have Reach. Mulg is the only one that applies to.
- Madrak Ironhide, World Ender loves anything with reach - and brings a damage buff.
Drawbacks & Downsides
- He's slow.
- Unlike his rivals no damage buff - so no turning lights into credible threats or allied heavies into Colossal-wreckers
Tricks & Tips
- Screen him. He won't get the charge off on his own merits.
Comparison to Mk2
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.
