- "Troggs are always looking for a good fight. They love to fight against wizards, as they are immune to damage caused by spells." – Zyzyx, The Gods Themselves (James)
Troggs have their name derived from the word troglodyte, which means caveman.
Troggs are a humanoid race, known for their underground habitats, inability to speak cohesively and their immunity to most, if not all magic. They are one of the more pious followers of James. Since they have no specified home, they are presumed to be spread out all over the Glebe.
Even though their speech is highly incomprehensible, they have been known to utter small phrases. During the negotiations between Pyro and James, one Trogg said "Watch it!" upon being hit by a Firefist.
- Most of Trogg's taunts comprise of unintelligible groans and "babble".
- May acknowledge "Mowgli?" when selected. This is presumably a reference to the Jungle Book protagonist
Abilities and Tactics
Special and Passive Abilities
Passive Abilities: Immunity to Magical Damage
Groups of Troggs are great at attacking enemy wizards. Due to their high magic resistance, enemy wizards will have trouble killing them. They are particularly troublesome in groups, and killing them should be a top priority, as you can blast other enemy units away with magic.
However, because of the slow movement speed of the Troggs, you may want to ignore them completely, concentrate on the enemy instead, and decimate their stronger forces. If you control your Wizard's movement carefully and with good precision, along with careful watch of your Minimap, Troggs are easily countered by any any flying creature. If you find your wizard under the constant attacks of enemy Troggs, summon some of the Level 1 Flying Creatures, especially if you a Mystic of Persephone, or Elementalist of Stratos, as the rapid, stunning attacks of a Brainiac or Shrike will render the Melee creature defenseless, and the Trogg will have no way to attack the flyer. Level 1 Flyers are useful for taking care of Troggs because of their very short summoning time, and they only cost one soul.
Troggs also excel at destroying Manaliths, particularly in the beggining stages of Multiplayer games. Their rate of attack is the best out of all Level 1 Melee Creatures, and they can take more damage. The ridiculous magic resistance of the Troggs allows them to be quite resilient to a lot of damage, and that means the wizard will usually have to rely on his creatures to defend him from this unit.
