Given the "picked up" and worn out nature of the troll's weapons, I think any weapons it uses should be abilities.

Toggle Melee/Rock Throw
Chain whip: high knockback AoE, single use ability
Hammer/Tree Trunk: high damage AoE, timed ability, mutually exclusive with trident
Trident: high damage single target, timed ability, mutually exclusive with hammer

I also have a proposal regarding Smaug, but I'm thinking I wait 'till we finish this line of conversation.

I would find such property really interesting. As Aragorn says, that trident would have slain and passed through a boar. At least, this is what he says in the Italian version ;)

I can confirm DieWalküre the Italian translation is loyal to the original script  :). Anyway I like the idea. In general we cannot consider a cavern troll as a creature fond to particular weapon as a men, elves, dwarves could be :). They consider it more like a temporary tool. I don't see any bad if a troll can switch between different so to say "raw" temporary weapons, especially if we are talking about MM. And of course the damage shouldn't be so high :  they pick up  random objects but they are not well trained creatures. The trident could be a good way to deal good damage against heroes (as a parallelism with the sword of the mountain trolls of Mordor, which are instead well trained and deal very high damage).

if you look at the sequence, you can notice that the troll try to whip legolas using its own chain, as second example :D.

Braga will be a new hero availible for LakeTown.

Exactly. I back your points, Julio. I would also add that using the trident as a moderate hero-killer feature could be interesting. A special ability of cavern trolls. Yes, they are cavern trolls; I apologise, as I referred to the other kind in my previous post. I was talking about cavern trolls, of course :)

I think the trident could have a special purpose. Just like the hammer would be used to destroy masses of soldiers, the trident could be used by the troll to deal massive damage to particular units. That gives the troll a lot of purposes: He has his melee attack, his rock-throwing ability as a ranged weapon, the trunk as a low effectiveness weapon, and once Bolg has organized the armies of the Misty Mountains, they would get a chance to get the mace/hammer as a weapon to further improve their mass-slaying abilities, and the trident as a way to have a more damage dealing weapon that hits few (or only one) targets.

It would also reflect that aspect of the wild that DieWälkure said, it is really fitting that the Trolls of the MM would pick up whatever was at their disposal as a quick way to deal a lot of damage, the trident wasn't intended as a combat weapon, but they will use it in that way, because I think that's one of the main appeals of the Misty Mountains: going from a disorganized rabble that uses scavenged weapons but aren't quite a real army yet, to become a fully organized army under the command of Bolg that makes the most of the weapons and armor they took from others, and becoming a dreadful army that still uses what they happen to find, being totally different from the other armies of Middle-Earth.

Only at the End shall they speak...

A curious Noldo interrogates a Vanya of Valinórë. He desires to know what will be of Arda at the end of all.



Vanya, Child of Ingwë, thou dwellest with the Mighty and certainly me thou wilt help,
As much I long to know what shall be of our beloved World.

Noldo, proud and strong thy being, we may not foretell that either way, for Manwë and Varda only glimpses of the future must have had, the ones that hear and see all, whose sight is maybe apt to surpass the circles of the sky and even the boundaries of time as well.

The Reunited Hope



Merry we all are and much we see of a brighter future,
Now that the Dark Tower lies broken and what was once a sole thing has finally been reunited,
The King may sit on his throne in solace and good will, knowing that the nightmare has passed and that things shall thus be mended,
Fatigues and toil pave the path for a new age to begin, in which splendour is to wane, but peace the norm shall become.

His spouse could never be fairer or more gracious for sure,
As she is of the immortal kind and from a royal bloodline descends,
Because the blood of the Two Twins shall again be one,
Blood that hides legends and impossible tasks: the pride of Númenor, the Noldorin kin, the wisdom of the old Elwë and of the mysterious Queen Melian the lively strength.

Alas, madness has conquered the noblest of the minds



So low and treacherous I would never have expected that you could be, once pure and wise as of all the Istari the propositions,
And now you choose the path of darkness and an unexplainable plan, which I suppose you had enough time to prepare,
Yet still you deny and refuse to grasp, that none might bend the One's will and as his master claim oneself, for he does not share the power!
Alas, madness has conquered the noblest of the minds, and the mightiest of the one-time Wise of this fine land.

Thou dost not treat me as a fool!



Thou dost not treat me as a fool, Gandalf! One of thy simple acquaintances I am not!
Thy words of comfort and hope shall not avail thy cause, for of words I am the master and every uncanny visit I detest,
Thou no longer free to roam through lands and shires shalt be, as well as thy rustic friends for whom thou bearest a foolish love,
Hearken thy chief, wizard, our fortunes might be greater if the great power awakening we are to join.
