Jotun are a species of giant ogre-like humanoids found in the northern reaches of the Tyrian continent in the Guild Wars Eye of the North expansion pack. They are about the size of common Tyrian Giants but have larger heads and a lack of horns. They typically carry any of a variety of oversized mace like weapons and wear only a crude loincloth around their waist. While the Jotun do not appear to be intelligent, they can be heard to occasionally utter a few short phrases in the common tongue.
Jotun have also been seen to participate in organized fighting matches, which take place between two armed Jotun in what seems to be a ceremonial fighting ring, while other Jotun stand guard.
Because of their large size and great strength, Jotun posses two noticeable attributes:
- Most cannot be knocked down by any skill or attack.
- They can stomp their feet on the ground to knock down everyone around them using the monster skill "Giant Stomp".
On the weakness side, keep in mind that Jotuns ...
- Are fleshy creatures.
- Are susceptible to all conditions, including bleeding, poison and disease.
- Leave a corpse behind.
- Are not undead.
- Are not Giants.
- Are vulnerable to a well-timed Pain Inverter because of their Giant Stomp.
Jotuns may drop the following loot (besides gold and various weapons and items):
|Salvage Items||Jotun plating|
