Troll Matriarch

Last updated: Exalt Version (June 2021)

A vengeful mother who has assumed the local trolls to be her children in her hysteria. Could do with a hair stylist.

The Troll Matriarch is the first boss of the Haunted Cemetery, appearing during the fifth round of the first level of the dungeon.

The Realm Eye says:
The hideous Troll Matriarch was once the joyful mother of the Ghost Bride. Overcome with grief at her daughter’s murder, she stood by her tomb forever.
As the cemetery fell to decay, surrounding trees and vines became entwined in her still-living body.
She no longer remembers who she was. All she knows is that she must protect the soul of her lost child from anyone who would threaten her.

The Troll Matriarch initially spawns at the top of the room, taunting “This forest will be your tomb!”. She then chases players while firing single purple shots that inflict Hallucinating and and rings of Weakening green shots. Throughout the whole fight, she will throw yellow grenades that spawn Deadly Mushrooms.

After taking some damage, she taunts “I call upon the aid of warriors past! Smite these trespassers!”. She spawns in a number of Troll Pathfinders and Reanimated Remains and moves into the center of the room, firing rings of all her shots. The Reanimated Remains are permanently Armored and circle the Matriarch, while the Troll Pathfinders behave as usual. She is immune to damage until the Remains are all killed, and will periodically spawn more Reanimated Remains and say: “Nothing can harm me when I’m surrounded by allies!”

Once the minions are killed, the boss chases players, firing a spiral of green waves and bursts of purple bullets.

Tips and Strategies

  • If you’re competing for soulbound in a large group, dodge the weakness bullets as much as possible. They can be hard to see, however.

  • Try to sometimes rotate around the boss. Her mushrooms can be difficult to see, and block shots which would otherwise count toward soulbound damage.

  • During the phase in which she summons Reanimated Remains, make sure you kill them quickly otherwise more will spawn, making it difficult to kill all of them.

  • If you have low defense, don’t stand on the boss. She fires enough shots to deal massive damage, even at full health.
