      there is a green noxious bulb down to the right, drag it over to him and then light it up, just be careful not hit him directly with any attack that cast fire

        Teleported 20 total corpses on him while he was blocked by indestructable chests, casted laser ray on him to start a fight and set him on fire, and with mass corpse explosion one shotted him

          This is how I killed grog as lvl 10. Put rain or blood down. Have 1 caster with air wand. Electrify the rain/blood. Now each wand cast will apply shocked so you can perma stun using 2 wand attacks per turn. Then you need some way to apply burning as well. I used lizard + lvl 1 fire spell.

            I just blocked him with 2 indestructible ornate chests and slowly burned him to dead with fane. He won't attack since his only attack is poison on that range and it has no effect on fane :)

              I did this by waiting until he was on the far side of the bridge, casting laser ray on him, and blocking him with elemental totems, and incarnates. With two on the bridge, he can't cross it, and usually on kills one per turn. I never actually hit him with my characters, just kept summoning fire totems.

                shackles of pain + living on the edge + move towards him and let him use an attack of opportunity on you = gg

                you can also cheese this fight even more with Fane. Make the above combo but instead of triggering Grog's opportunist talent, you should drink a giant health potion, which will damage you (as undead) and also Grog.

                Also, make sure to cripple/cc him so he doesn't one-shot you (if that ain't obvious already).

                  Another easy way is to terrain manipulation the deathfog near the ferryman, keep dragging the deathfog over to the bridge. Drag the deathfog ontop of Grog, easy kill.

                    Easiest way to kill Grog is to use the telekinesis chest exploit.
                    Take the golden chest from behind the magisters house, fill it with barrels, packages and other heavy things to get it up and weight 1000+ lbs. Using a character with telekinesis, even telekinesis 1 will work, move the now VERY HEAVY chest to the bridge. Every single time it's your turn, move the chest so it just hits his character model. This will deal approximately 600 damage on average and he'll be dead after you use only 10-15 action points.
                    If you're lucky then you'll crit often and he'll be dead way faster.

                    Personally just killed him this way, and it even works wonders on group battles if you take the feat that gives you plus 2 actions points every time you kill and enemy, and to gain even further damage keep adding more stuff to the chest, giving it more weight.

                      if you teleport both poison traps in the area onto the bridge then set fire to one of them they will constantly trigger to kill him then teleport away when done

                          1. Cast Rain all over the bridge. 2. Use Turn to Oil. 3. Use fire skills/fire arrow from afar. 4. He will take damage from being burned without the need to engage in a fight with him. He doesn't even heal himself. 5. Repeat until he's burnt into a crisp. 6. Profit!

                            all of you with your elaborate schemes when all i did to kill him was apply living on the edge to my polymorph character to keep them at 1 health then used forced exhange to swamp my 1 health with his 10k+ health. set him up for an easy 1 shot kill

                              Loremaster level 6 shows Grog to be level 18! Evasive aura is very helpful pre fight via source orb in amulet, bouncing shield and fire incarnate fully buffed(pre fight) does heavy damage, setting atrophy will make him do contamination so beware necrofire on the narrow bridge but better that then getting your tank 1 shot, Ruptured tendons also works great while spacing him away so he bleeds and burns at the same time, torturer talent to negate shield if that helps set status, I found he began to flee the fight when his health got below half, but on other occasions he didn't. Was level 12 on first attempt and kept losing so came back at level 14, kept him on fire, status effects to make him miss go and deal damage over time, didn't get hit once, he was only able to fortify and do one contamination the entire fight, but lost a party member to necrofire after fight.

                                easy way to kill (honor mode, level 11). use fire and oil barrels to create slow and fire arrows. grog is too slow to chase while slowed. having fire elemental totems also helps alot.

                                  Can be killed by kiting and burning ground + fire damage skills. Ensnare is also amazing for this because it roots him in the fire. He has no magic armour, very vulnerable to magic CC

                                    Easy method of killing Grog is to kite him up to Jahen just north of his bridge. Jahen will join on your side and, being level 20, will tear him apart with impunity.

                                      There is a plant thing that generates poison nearby, down the hill. Teleport that up to the bridge, place it right near Grog and set the poison cloud on fire from a distance. This will keep you from starting the fight while continuously damaging him. By time his hp is down to 400 ish, talk to him - he will die almost instantly, clearing the quest.

                                        I beat him 5 levels below his (at level 13) and probably could have done it earlier, it's a great move for the XP and the tactics:
                                        -clean the bridge (use rain on the poison)
                                        -one character shocking him
                                        -one character hitting him with fire
                                        -other characters can do whatever as long as they aren't healing him (examine him for his strengths/weaknesses)

                                        He's weak to fire which is the only reason I thought I might beat him. If he gets a turn to act he'll heal and kill my tank in one shot, but after learning this the hard way I realized I could keep him shocked and burning every round....this makes him completely unable to heal or hit you. I didn't talk to him, I just started attacking him with a shock attack right off the bat. Later I probably could have turned him into a chicken but all it seemed to take was a bunch of shocking attacks (spells, presumably arrows would work of shocking type) and fire attacks. At one point my water was vaporized (by my fireball probably) and that created steam which made targeting him hard, luckily I had shocking touch and other close quarter methods so I kept rolling until he dropped. I'm level 16 now and still using the ring he dropped on that day when I was level 13! So load up on fire and shocking skills/spells and blast away!

                                          If you have the polymorph surface swap skill you can use the lava near hnaag and carry it there (may take a minute)
