Troll Bouncer

From Battle College
Jump to: navigation, search

Trollblood Light Warbeast

Strapped with thick, heavy armor in addition to holding a stout shield, each bouncer whirls a deadly spiked ball on a chain whose keening whistle heralds bone-shattering brutality. Loyal to those they consider kin, bouncers eagerly charge into harm’s way heedless of their own survival, often shouldering allies aside to take the hit themselves. Because of this unusual protective nature, trollkin kriels single out bouncers to guard chieftains, shamans, and other important elders.

Thoughts on Troll Bouncer[edit]

Troll Bouncer in a nutshell[edit]

The Troll Bouncer is the little warbeast that could. It's very tough by the standards of lights, relatively cheap, hits decently, and has an animus that shuts down certain assassination attempts.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

  • Any warlock, whenever you are expecting an enemy pop and drop, push-initiated, or stationary assassination tactic.
  • Durable choice for Chronicler's Charge of the Trolls or Grissel2's Discord spell.

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • It doesn't hit that hard.

Tricks & Tips[edit]

  • With its reach and threat range it can mess up quite a bit of infantry - or upset a heavy (and especially one with a shield).

Comparison to Mk2[edit]

  • It changed animus, for the better.
