Combat

Wasteland trolls are no more subtle about combat than their more common relatives. They charge opponents with no regard for their own safety - or, for that matter, combat tactics. Though vulnerable to fire, they merely seek to avoid it and continue attacking.

Light Sensitivity (Ex): A wasteland troll is dazzled by bright sunlight or the glare of a daylight spell. In addition, a wasteland troll exposed to sunlight or its equivalent is treated as though it was slowed: It can take only a single move action or standard action each turn, but not both (nor can it take full-round actions). It also takes a -1 penalty on attack rolls, AC, and Reflex saves, and moves at half its normal speed.

Regeneration (Ex): Fire and acid deal normal damage to a wasteland troll. If a wasteland troll loses a limb or body part, the lost portion regrows in 3d6 minutes. The creature can reattach the severed member instantly by holding it to the stump.

Rend: If a wasteland troll hits with both claw attacks, it latches onto the opponent's body and tears the flesh. This attack automatically deals an extra 2d6+9 points of damage.
