Frofnir Trollsbane was a troll hunter and possible bandit who, somewhat ironically, met his demise at the hands of trolls.


He is wearing a complete set of Iron Armor, except for the bracers, and has the Unique Weapon, Trollsbane. Taking Trollsbane triggers two trolls to run towards the corpse and attack the Dragonborn.

The trolls may spawn before the hammer is taken and fight one another before attacking the Dragonborn.


His corpse can be found at a troll den called Trollsbane's Demise located in the eastern mountains of The Reach directly west of Cradle Stone Tower, or directly east from Valthume.
