Entry Text
Mother said Stonebeard King earned his title "King" simply because no one could take it from him. If you are arrogant enough to call yourself a king, you better be able to back it up, and Stonebeard could. He never lost a fight...until now.

You can choose between attacking first or waiting for the Stonebeard King to make the first move. It is recommended to hang back and wait for it to make the first attack.

Stonebeard King Attack Patterns

Attack 1

GoW Stonebeard King Slam.png

The Troll will stalk towards you and slam its Stone Pillar down to the ground. Unlike other Trolls with a similar attack, there is no area of effect added to this strike.

Attack 2

GoW Stonebeard King Stomp.png

The King will stomp its feet, sending a wave of ice straight at you. Block or dodge this.

Attack 3

GoW Stonebeard King Swings.png

If you deal it enough damage, the Stonebeard King will swing its Stone Pillar around wildly before finally finishing up with a slam. Avoid these strikes, and counter attack once it has ended.

Attack 4

GoW Stonebeard King Exploding Ice.png

A special attack, the Stonebeard King will rear its Stone Pillar high before slamming it into the ground. Spikes of Ice will appear around you, which is important for you to avoid as these will explode after a short while.

Tips and Strategy

Very easy fight, complicated only by the appearance of Wolves that run around the battle ground before attacking you. Its recommended to take care of these first before striking back at your main target for the fight.
