Entry Text
Mother said this troll lived in the Heart of the Mountain with the Giants, but there was a falling out one day and they cast him out. Makes sense to me; I wouldn't want to live with a troll. Guess he moved back in when they left.

Jarn Fotr Attack Patterns

Attack 1

GoW Jarn Fotr - Stomp.png

Jarn will stomp his feet to send an ice wave to you. Evade this.

Attack 2

GoW Jarn Fotr - Swing.png

A standard Troll attack, where Jarn will swing his Stone Pillar at you before slamming it down to the ground. Evade and counterattack when he does this, as his recovery time from this attack is pretty slow.

Attack 3

GoW Jarn Fotr - Slam.png

He will stalk towards you before slamming his Stone Pillar to the ground. Simply evade this, and if you can, evade behind him for some easy strikes.

Tips and Strategy

Not a very difficult fight, but things do get complicated once Draugr start to show up. Its best to take care of them first before focusing on Jarn once more.
