Trollblood Dire Troll Character Heavy Warbeast

Whenever a remote mountain village is found in ruins and with its taverns plundered, northerners speak fearfully of the dire troll called Rök. Although insatiable as any dire troll, over a century ago Rök developed a unique craving for beer and liquor of all sorts, and his raids of villages for their intoxicating spirits have since become legendary.

When he was sought out by Borka Kegslayer, Rök engaged the trollkin in an exhausting battle lasting several hours. After this, Kegslayer shared his own potent brew, convincing the ferocious troll they were kindred souls. When Borka left, Rök followed, knowing that greater fights and rivers of beer awaited them.

Thoughts on Rök[edit]

Rök in a nutshell[edit]

  • Angry at being in the nutshell, Rök begins to break everything.
  • Rök is fundamentally a worthy rival to the almost ubiquitous Dire Troll Mauler; he hits hard - and brings a really useful melee damage buff in Primal rather than simply a strength buff.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • Berserk and Primal can both blow up in your face. (Primal's best used on lights where you are less worried by their frenzy).

Tricks & Tips[edit]

  • Look for how to position your charge with his spray.

Comparison to Mk2[edit]

  • Now the most costly of non-gargantuan Trollblood warbeasts
  • Better abilities with comparable cost to Mk2 (slightly less than 2x cost)
  • Added Bond is great tech against Warjacks that try to slay him.
