Quick question that popped up in our game.

When the troll has a payback reaction after being attacked, but he can not reach his attacker (because it was a long way ranged attack), can he attack other Heroes that are close enough (because he has the skill "Target all close Heroes") or is there no payback reaction at all since he can not reach (and payback) the initial attacker.

Thx

Our group agrees on the fact that the monster just tries to attack the attacker. If he can not, because the route is blocked or too far away he tries to reach it and stops if he can not reach a position to attack.

This applies to all monsters and monsters never try to attack other players, even if they can target other players.

The Troll will only target all close heroes when he can attack the attacker and there are more heroes close to the Troll when attacking.

a monster must be able to attack the active hero that caused his attack, otherwise it doesnt attack at all.

just to be clear, the player controlling the monster chooses how that monster moves which can be in any direction, not necessarily closer to the active hero.

^ This is your answer. The "Target all close Heroes" special ability that he has means that when he does attack, he will also target all heroes that are close to him during the attack as well. it does not remove his restriction that he has to be in range and initially attack the person who triggered his payback though.

Also, he does have 2 action points so make sure you close the door so that person that did that can not do it again.
