|I think the troll we just fought was Daudi Kaupmandr. Mother used to always tell me stories about him to try and scare me if I wandered off too far. I think she'd be proud of me, but Father thinks because I got a little angry that I'm "not ready." Whatever. I just hlped him kill a troll; I know I'm ready! Mother told me a lot of stories about trolls. This one's name translates to Death Merchant. With a name like that, I think it's safe to assums he was pretty evil. I'm glad we killed him.|
During the quest, The Marked Trees, you'll be in a scenario where you have to hunt a deer with Atreus. During your hunt, you'll be accosted by Daudi, who will try to steal your deer.
|Play through The Marked Trees until the section where you have to shoot the deer. Follow Atreus to the fallen animal to trigger the fight.|
Daudi will be the first boss that you'll encounter in God of War. As such, high powered gear isn't important – this is rather an opportunity to observe how other Trolls like Daudi will behave in future boss battles.

|Axe Level||Level 1|
Although Daudi will not be difficult to defeat, at the level you'll be when you begin the game, you'll be on the weaker side of things. Try to keep your distance when you begin the fight, and memorize his attack patterns so you know when to come in for a strike.
The most common of his attacks, Daudi will do a sideways thrust of his Stone Pillar to hit you, followed immediately by slamming the same pillar down on you. Dodge these and strike critical hits against the Troll as he is in the middle of the two attacks. If you can manage, roll behind him to strike.
His only defense against your attacks will be an area of effect stomp of his feet on the ground when you strike. Roll out of the way or block this.
The last of his attacks that you'll have to worry about, Daudi will swing its Stone Pillar multiple times around without abandon. Simply stay of the way of this one and try throwing your axe against him while he is in a rage.
Overall, since Daudi will be your first boss encounter ever in God of War, he is not difficult to defeat. Simply try and keep moving, particularly when he comes in for a strike. Evade, strike back, and evade again. When he goes in for wild swings with his pillar, keep at a distance and throw your axe to cause some damage.
