    I have taken out a few but I am a mage that specializes in fire spells so I have a advantage.

    what difficulty are you playing on? that has a direct impact on enemies. i m playing on easy and i still have to watch my health, i just can walk into areas like a madmen and expect to die. just watch your health and it should be to much of an issue.

    I found one on my way to High Hrothgar and it killed me about 3 times. Then I got smart and went around him a bit and got above him. Fired arrows down on him and killed his ass. (Had to tbag him a few times outta anger.)

    Frost Trolls are classed as the strongest out of the troll family. What level are you and what skills do you use against it?

    If you have fire spells go for it, fire damage wep hit its head in with it, partner or summons use them all. After a while of more exploring you'll find that these guys are a cake walk eventually.

    I've faced 2-3 Frost Trolls in my playthrough thus far, but they actually aren't too bad once you memorize their attack patterns. If you're a mage, duel-wield the Firebolt and do as much damage to them that way (if you have that spell. If not, they're susceptible to other forms of fire). If you're not a mage, then you'll have a longer battle, but it's not too hard. Basically, they only repeat one kind of attack. When you get close to them, they'll swing their arms 2-3 times. Just simply back off, and when they finish that attack, get in a sword-swing or two. They have a pretty long recovery time for their attacks. Just be patient with it and it shouldn't be too bad. They're one of the more difficult enemies in the game, so just know that there aren't many that are much harder.

    If you're a Mage just use Fire Spells. If you're not a Mage. Use fire scrolls or a fire enchanted weapon. If all else fails, resort to the Fire Breath Dragon Shout. For me Frost Trolls were only a pita when there was more than one of them attacking me.

    playing through normally, since the first time ive encountered them never had a problem really. i usually arrowed them mostly till they got near me, then used the fire breath thu'um to really hurt em, and stop their regen for a bit, then just hacked and slashed till they died. at the moment, i can kill them in one or two power swings so i dont really worry about them anymore. make sure u got nice armor! or some bait!

    I just duel wielded a Orcish sword and the axe you get from Whiterun Jarl dude . Both had enchantments but ran out when I met first frost troll.. Had no issues at all, just ran at him swinging like crazy adn backed off. Had ot heal once and switched to heal spell and kept swinging. difficulty on normal and didnt' have to change it. After killing thought I could of used my fire spell, but didn't matter. Around level10 ish I think it was.

    Friend of mine in real life hates these guys and can't seem to kill them. Says he does little damage even with fire spell and then BAM they eventually recover their health before he can finish them. But yeah, like said, I've had no issues. Then agian, I'm used to playing Demon's Souls and Dark Souls religiously and backed my fighting here with those tactics .

    Frost trolls are STRONG, fast, and they REGENERATE. You gotta do a lot of damage to them, and then, if you finished them by any means other than fire, you have to close in and land a manual whack with your melee weapon from close range.

    A widely overlooked and underrated skill, blocking, helps survive a fight with one.
