Ettins are giant-kin, large humanoid creatures, which have two conjoined faces on their single head. They have great muscular bodies and thick gray skin, and are always found carrying huge clubs on their shoulders.
Ettins can only be found as hammer warriors (except for their bosses, and the Earthborn Ettins which appeared on the Establish the Luxon Settlement quest). They will usually be found in groups of 2-3 and will generally pose a threat to any party spell caster if they all get to him/her at once. They can use their sheer strength to land great amounts of damage. Therefore, skills that hinder warriors (such as those that slow them or blind them) are very useful against Ettins.
Furthermore keep in mind that Ettins ...
- are fleshy creatures.
- are susceptible to all conditions, including bleeding, poison and disease.
- leave a corpse behind.
- are not undead.
- are classified as 'ogres,' and vulnerable to weapon mods that exploit that weakness.
