|“||But at the end of the Third Age a troll-race not before seen appeared in southern Mirkwood and in the mountain borders of Mordor. Olog-hai they were called in the Black Speech.||”|
–The Lord of the Rings, Appendix F
Mirk-trolls are found in the biome of Dol Guldur, and are similar in appearence to Olog-hai. They are about four meters high and feared for their brutal force. They are highly valued by evil commanders.
Contrary to popular belief, the Mirk-trolls are not actually a non-canon addition; Tolkien mentioned that Olog-hai were found both in Mordor and in southern Mirkwood.
Mirk-trolls are hostile to all factions not aligned with the Dol Guldur faction, such as Hobbits, Rangers of the North, and Wood-elves. This means that they will attack any mobs of other factions, and any player negatively aligned with the Dol Guldur faction. When not fighting, they wander the land.
Mirk-trolls will charge at a frightening speed and attack with the large, triple-pronged scythes in their hands. These scythes do not have the area of effect damage or enormous knockback that regular Olog-hai deal with their hammers, but instead they inflict the poison effect on the person on the receiving end.
Each attack deals +6 damage to unarmored opponents. All in all, this mob is a formidable foe.
|Powerful melee attack||Rather expensive cash and alignment|
|Inflicts poison||doesn't fit into confined spaces (underground combat is difficult)|
|High health and armor.||Not overly strong against ranged;a group of archers can kill him.|
|Very strong against melee infantry||Extremely weak when stuck in the water; a single archer can take one down|
