R u srs? ANet is really running out of ideas aren't they...does it ask for a 5-plat crossing fee also? >.> Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 19:46, 8 September 2007 (CDT)

Fortunetly, no... but i think this is a link to the King's Quest series? I remeber a certain Bridge Troll there aswell.--Cosmitz 11:22, 11 September 2007 (CDT)
Indeed. King's Quest 1 had a huge island with Rumpelstiltskin living on it. You needed a carrot and a goat to defeat the bridge troll.

I have a screenie - pm me ingame if you can tell me how to integrate it into the article (Not Okay I Promise) X Deity X 17:08, 10 September 2007 (CDT)

Shouldn't this guys second name start with a capital? Idk how to move pages, so won't touch it, but... 15:30, 11 September 2007 (CDT)

Fixed.--Marcopolo47 signature new.jpg (Talk) (Contr.) 15:31, 11 September 2007 (CDT)

In Monkey Island I there was a Bridge Troll. He demanded a Herring as fee. I think the whole scene looks very equal. I wonder what is happening if you take one Herring to this Troll. --Random42 18:16, 11 September 2007 (CDT)

I was thinking, Three Billy Goats Gruff. -- Xeon 00:11, 15 September 2007 (CDT)

I was thinking, no--Marcopolo47 signature new.jpg (Talk) (Contr.) 21:48, 4 October 2007 (UTC)
(edit conflict) The Billy Goats fable came LONG before King's Quest or Monkey Island. It was the first thing I thought of as well. *shrug* -Kamiawolf 22:20, 4 October 2007 (UTC)
Of course it's the Three Billy Goats Gruff - pretty much the origin of all bridge-residing trolls in modern literature. Interestingly, see also Fremont Troll - not a million miles away from ANet's HQ? --SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 22:19, 4 October 2007 (UTC)
Very much so the gruff story (too lazy to write it out). Go Billeh Gotes. PaintballerSig.jpg The Paintballer (T/C) 22:32, 4 October 2007 (UTC)
Are you seriously whining about this Ent? What's wrong with humour?

I was doing the Cipher of Grenth and I encountered this thing. Almost died laughing. Zulu Inuoe 19:32, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Trivia[edit source]

Aren't bridge trolls fairly common? I'm certain I've heard of them outside the cone=text of that specific fairy tale... Entrea SumataeEntrea Sumatae [Talk] 00:50, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Well, I haven't met one in real life, but if you have an example I can fix the trivia with it. This is the oldest place I've heard of it, to my knowledge. Ephidel 00:41, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
I already di change it to be less specific, it's like a bunch of other trivia that's actually a common phrase. Entrea SumataeEntrea Sumatae [Talk] 00:47, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
You obviously don't play enough Dungeons and Dragons. I a nerd for saying that? 17:57, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
Very much so, but we're all nerds for posting on GuildWiki, so don't sweat it.Entrea SumataeEntrea Sumatae [Talk] 22:26, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
I'd define it as dorks, tbh. --Shadowcrest 22:27, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

I know Guild Wars loves Monty Python - Wasn't there a sketch like this in the Holy Grail? The preceding unsigned comment was added by (contribs) 23:06, 11 April 2008 (UTC).

Skills[edit source]

This troll's skills suck. If anyone could check if he has some more... J Striker 08:53, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

Used Backbreaker on me just now in Hard Mode--killed him too quickly to see if he used anything else than what was listed; someone should check to see if that was added in Normal Mode too. The Goron 04:27, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

he used backbreaker on me today when i tried an 1on1 NM.

Blocking[edit source]

You cannot cross the bridge without fighting him.
What keeps you from pulling him away and running past?--AlariSig.png 23:06, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Maybe his aggro radius won't let him be pulled that far? --Powersurge360 23:07, 11 April 2008 (UTC)
Wait a second, I've run right past this guy on many occasions. He chases you, sure, but you certainly don't have to fight him. Felix Omni Signature.png 23:10, 11 April 2008 (UTC)
Fixed it to "without aggroing him." This may or may not be useful information, but it's better than saying "fighting." DancingZombies DZSig1.jpg 03:23, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

skills incorrect[edit source]

ran to this troll thing today and researched some skills. HE used backbreaker and Pulvering smash which makes this note useless. heres are some pictures if you want a proof U37-1237685503.jpg U37-1237685599.jpg --BioSpark 01:33, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
