A Troll has killed two (2) local Guards, of the Southeast New Festival Cove Tower Guard Militia, after maintaining a lengthy fight on the mountain. Ultimately, the Troll was killed, after reinforcements arrived.
“He (the Troll) had an elevation advantage. I am in shock!”, reported one of the Guards, after witnessing his brother’s death.
“We are deeply saddened upon hearing this news, but battle protocol must always be maintained.”, reported Guard Militia Leader, “Vooch”.
After reviewing https://www.wurmpedia.com/index.php/Fighting_Skill_Tips , we can examine (post hoc and, in this case, post mortem) why these two Guards died almost at the same time:
“Height Advantage. The tank should always get a height advantage over the enemy. There are two levels of height advantage: one is obtained at 20 steep and the second is obtained at 40+ steep. Note: This is the same advantage you get when using mounts, so using both will not give you any more benefits.”
Our condolences go out to the family members of the Southeast New Festival Cove Tower Guard, and all those involved.
