While Mind skills do not necessarily inflict damage, exploiting Troll's weakness towards it will offer you more turns.


Troll will utilize Ice attacks. And, yes, it will absorb your Ice attacks, so don't summon Ice attack-reliant demons to your party!

How to Beat Troll

Use Phys Skills

Troll has no resistance to Phys attacks, so don't hesitate throwing hands with them.

Troll Has No Immunity to Instakill Attacks

Likewise, Troll has zero immunity to instakill attacks. It doesn't hurt to try! You luckily might defeat him with a skill such as Hama.

Begin with Mind Skill

If you don't have an offense item that can inflict Mind ailments, you can pass the turn to a Demon that has Mind attacks.

Bring other demons that block Ice

Since Troll uses Ice attacks, we suggest bringing along other demons that can block Ice.
