Island Troll Tribes combines survival and PvP melee combat in a fight to the death for domination of the islands. Players can join together on teams of up to six players per tribe, or even go head to head. You need to fight for survival against the environment and enemy trolls while gathering resources to build up your strength. You can carve out your own way on these tropical islands, whether thats base building, hunting, thieving, exploring, or dominating the other tribes, the choice is yours.
This map has been around since 2005 but hasn't yet been submitted for approval by an editor to Hive. I present it now, in a more polished state than it ever has been, for consideration. The community's dedication to this mod speaks for itself, we've had thousands of players over the years who continue to come back and enjoy the game. With the support of Hive I hope to continue developing this map for the years to come.
In Island Troll Tribes, there are 7 basic classes. All basic classes can change into a subclass at level 6. If they reach level 8 without subclassing, and have their corresponding Medallion of Courage, or if they reach level 8 of their subclass they will be able to change into their super subclass. The maximum level is 30.
The Gatherer class focuses on gathering items as stated in the name. It is regarded as a powerful late game class due to having six slots.
The Hunter class focuses on hunting animals such as elk and hawks. It is a strong class early game and gets weaker as the game progresses. Hunters start with the ensnare ability, allowing him to kill elk easily.
The Mage class focuses on short bursts of heavy magical damage and debuffs. It specializes in dealing damage, and is a useful combat support, but is quite vulnerable on its own.
The Scout is a class that is specialized in detecting animals and enemy trolls. It relies on long range pings and reveal to observe his surroundings. With his reveal ability and five inventory slots, the Scout can make an efficient gatherer substitute. The Scout and his subclasses are the only ones who can loot Living Clay and Clay Explosion items from Scout Bushes.
The Thief class is specialized in harassing enemy tribes. It relies on stealing and escaping to achieve this, putting enemies on constant guard and often reducing their efficiency. It's 5 inventory slots in addition to blinking make this class an efficient Gatherer substitute. Can loot items from thief bushes.
The Beastmaster class is built for direct combat, with the ability to take control of animals for combat and utility purposes. Special abilities of this class manipulate pets.
The Priest class is a support focused hero. He has many buffing and healing abilities that can easily turn the tide of battle against an enemy. The Priest himself is quite powerful in combat, but he really shines when supporting a true combat hero, such as a Hunter or Beastmaster.
Island Troll Tribes extensively uses buildings for creating items and managing player stats. Most buildings are created in the inventory of a troll from the merging of items in the right order. Once a building is created in the inventory of a troll, it will be in the form of a construction kit which the troll can then place at a buildable location. Among some of the buildings you can create are fire, tent, armory, tannery, workshop, witch doctor’s hut, and many more.
There are many bosses scattered around the map. The most powerful bosses are the Mammoth, the Disco Duck, and the Hydra. They require lots of resources to defeat but grant powerful prizes which can help you defeat your enemies.

I don't think it's necessary to have all but only the latest changelog in the Quest Log.
A nice PvP survival map which could make use of more interesting things to be found and used in the wood. It however has a random/luck factor which can be or not...
Are you the original creator? If so kudos on this amazing map! I'm not really a fan on the competitive "scene" around the map, but back in the day, there was nothing I loved more than gathering and building myself a troll empire and going around killing the side objectives. There is hours upon hours of great gameplay in this map and every class of troll is uniquely fun to play. This is one of my favorite maps.
Though if I may give constructive criticism, I personally dislike how the game has devolved into forcing players to build next to the rivers. Having access to the transport boats is too big an advantage to let go, which unfortunately causes all the bases to be obviously located towards the center areas. I much preferred back in the day, when people would build in hidden spots throughout the forests and you'd have to search for the bases in the jungles.
But this is just an opinion of casual player who prefers the sandbox aspect of the map to the PvP.
Glad you enjoy the map! I am not the original creator, the history of the map is quite long and convoluted. My tenure as editor has largely been focused on implementing the changes which the community wishes to see. Since many of the players who are still regularly playing this game are ones from the competitive scene, these tend to be mostly balance changes and making the map more stable, less buggy.
Your opinion about trade boats is shared with many old players who come back to play the new map, but amongst those still playing the map most seem to enjoy the new play style, granted they are more PvP focused than PvE. Even though a better PvE experience can be had by using modes to disable trade ships and playing with people who won't rush you, I think the map has a lot of room to grow in the PvE/sandbox direction. I think that the addition of new bosses, items, and ways to level up your character this could be achieved, but I also need to balance that with the PvP aspect of the game. It's hard to cater to both sides at once.
Extremely fun map to play either with friends and within the lovely community that ITT offers. I entered their discord channel, they're all very good people - made a few new friends and had a blast! Cheers!
