Tips for Frost Troll
Pretty early in the game but need help against a Frost Toll, killing me in 2-3 hits.

Use fire items. Try using sneak and a bow if you have one.

If it's the one you encounter on your way to High Hrothgar, just sprint past it.

Mounted combat. Use fire--based enchantments or spells.

Just avoid it, it's very difficult to kill early on.

Let Lydia fight it while you pummel it with arrows or sprint past if you're a wuss :o)

If you like hiding behind a shield like some of us do, the "Quick Reflexes" perk comes in very handy against trolls. The reason trolls do so much damage is because practically every attack they perform is a power attack. With QR, the troll swings, time slows down, you sidestep and slash it a few times... rinse and repeat. I almost never leave home without it now!

Run! Run and jump up/down a cliff. Trolls don't jump and you'll eventually get to a point where it can't get you, but you can see it. Then range attacks. When it runs away, sneak. Once it loses sight of you it'll leave cover, then range it again. Also works for bears, giants, mammoths, bandits, mudcrabs.....

As others have said:

Get a follower, have them tank a hit or two and strafe around them casting fire or using fire enchanted weapons. This will negate their health regen and do some pretty nasty damage to them.

Like others have said avoid it or run if you have to. If you do plan on fighting it their attacks are kinda predictable like bears. Back off when it attacks and then attack....rinse and repeat.

Very useful tips, thanks. To be honest I didn't expect so many replies, Steam game forums seem like a cool place.

This is probably the bast tactical solution whilst at low levels...Then, once you have some fight in you after levelling up a few...Use ranged weaponry containing FIRE to attack the Troll(s).

<Enchant a Bow with Fire>

Frost Trolls have natural healing abilities which make them difficult to kill. Fire however is the Troll's weakness:- Fire does increased damage which the Frost Troll cannot accomodate for.

huehuehuehue >:3

There is a book in the game that can teach you basic knowledge in dealing with these fearsome creatures.
