EverQuest Wiki

The only things Trolls care about are eating, fighting, poetry and fine art. Their erratic behavior and formidable strength make them fearsome and deadly opponents. Trolls have daunting strength and stamina, which make them superior fighters; they're also highly spiritual and wise, making them the greatest of shamans.

Trolls are widely regarded as the most beautiful and sexiest of all races, frequently working as underware models for Victoria's Secret and GQ. They are also olfactorily pleasing and are often said to carry the delicate scent of lilac and marigold upon them despite eschewing the use of any perfumes or colognes. They are closely related to the ogre and iksar races, the former of which was created when a troll made sweet love to a high elf, and the latter when a somewhat inebriated troll mistakenly took a froglok to bed.

There are those who claim that trolls are generally unpleasant to everyone; however, they are, in fact, generally very tender hearted and loving. Trolls are very trustworthy and honest; therefore, it is often recommended that you allow them to hold on to your loot when you need assistance.

Trolls are considered to be an evil race. In truth, they are just misunderstood by other, inferior races (especially gnomes). They are closely allied with the dark elves, many of whom admit to worshipping Trolls as the living embodiment of Innoruuk (the god of the dark elves), because they are entranced by the trolls' natural elegance.

Gameplay Advantages and Disadvantages[]

Trolls, like Iksar, receive an innate bonus to their HP regeneration. Unlike Iksar, they do not receive an AC bonus; however, the troll's HP regeneration bonus is larger. This regeneration bonus is always active but is approximately doubled in effectiveness while sitting.

For better and for worse, trolls are also one of the largest races in the game. This gives them significant difficulties when trying to maneuver through narrow corridors and low doorways, and in some cases may render certain passageways unusable altogether. Carrying a shrink item is highly recommended for this reason. Note that shamans and beastlords eventually get spells that can accomplish the same function.

Trolls are, to the surprise of many, excellent dancers by nature; they, in fact, invented the mamba, the tango, the lambada, and slam dancing; the latter of those, they utilize to great effect during combat, slamming their large bodies into their opponents causing significant damage.

Bold numbers indicate suggested stats by the game to put bonus points into.


  • The warder of a troll beastlord looks like a basilisk. (Originally, it looked like a crocodile, but a patch changed this.)
  • Trolls do not show a robe graphic when wearing an ALL ALL robe (this is because the human game designers are jealous of how stunning trolls appear when dressed in finery).
