How do I beat the frost troll on the way to High Hrothgar?

  1. I am a level 9 wood elf and I can't kill him even with some fire scrolls.

  1. Yeah a decent fire casting and lots of arrows less than (100 iron), What I did was when I approached him and he came around the corner I just ran backwards and looked for a heightened ledge to jump onto. and there is one on the left where he can't get you . Look for it before you cross the pass its on the left. Or basicly any ledge or big flat rock things I'm not sure what u would call these terrain pieces. It seems like any place where you jump onto nothing can get you , I do this all the time with Giants and mammoths or saber tooths.
    It seems like none of these things can Jump!!!
    So i just blasted fire in both hands at the frost troll and when magika had to recharge I whiped out my bow and started shooting him and keep repeating until he's dead! :D

  1. Fire. Spells, scrolls, enchantments, poisons, and shouts. And don't forget plenty of healing potions. When you're seriously hurt, use R2 to sprint away from it and heal and use your strongest fire spells from a distance, dual-wielded if possible. It may take a while, but it should work.

  2. Yeah, Fire is very useful against the frost troll. What i did, was i had someone following me as a hired sword and they distracted the troll so i could go in from behind and use spells and my axe.

  3. I would suggest keeping lots of magicka and health potions on hand. The only thing I really did was backpedal while casting Flames from both hands, and chopping at it with my sword when I had no other option. As long as you have a good idea of the path and don't get hung up on anything, the backpedaling method should work pretty well for you.

  4. Be a sneaky little dick. I killed him by launching arrows at him and he didn't even notice me. He'll heal a little bit but its not enough for the effort to be wasted. If he does catch you, and your weapon based skills aren't good or you don't have anything boosting magic-based fighting...Use the "Healing Left-Fighting Right" tactic. Running will screw you over greatly

  5. I used a paralysis poison on it which let me get three power strikes off. It nearly killed me before i remembered I had that poison.

  6. I killed him at level 6 with the starting fire spell in both hands. All I had to do was back pedal.

  7. take your bodyguard, you distract the troll while your bodyguard attacks from behind. stay between close to mid range to distract the troll. DONT WALK BACKWARDS, you dont have to fight the troll, let your bodyguard do the killing. Oh hey, sidestepping is the new walking backwards, you move faster when sidestepping and you can also see the troll (enemy) at the time

  10. I rode up there on my horse and simply trotted past with no trouble. However on the return journey with the newly improved Thu'um, he was little bother.

  11. Fire, burn that mother to dust, and back up as you do, running away if required. I used the basic flame spell that you get starting the game.

  12. Double wield the Flames spell and walk backwards.

    You can sometimes get lucky and the Troll will get caught on rocks.
