So I’ve run into two frost trolls so far.
The first one I took advantage of bad pathing which I feel bad about because it ruined the game immersion.
The second one I used a full unrelenting shout and got a bunch of free shots in while it was unconscious, but then had to back off since it really didn’t go down more than 1/4 of its life. I finally took advantage of bad pathing to run past it to the end of the dungeon.
This feels really odd because I have taken down a handful of dragons, including once being attacked by two at the same time.
Is there any good strategy to kill a frost troll which won’t make me feel like I’m glitching the game?
Your level, your equipment, and your skillset all come into play while fighting. It is good to know that Frost trolls are weak against fire and it will stop them from regenerating health for a bit.
In low levels, they can absolutely devastate you, so make sure you are at least level 10 or so before you want to take one on.
Think of it like a deathclaw in Fallout 3: you can find them at level 1, but that doesn’t mean you can fight them.
Dragons scale in level relative to you – Frost Trolls do not.
