"If you think you've seen a troll, remain calm and slowly back away. The wise hunter knows that preparation is the key to success, and you certainly don't want to hunt any trolls unprepared!"

Frost Trolls are a species of Troll that behave like their more common cousins, though they are stronger and much more resilient. Just like ordinary trolls, they have a weakness to fire.


Frost trolls can be found in snowy areas, such as Winterhold, The Pale or Eastmarch, as well as the northern areas in SolstheimDR. They are especially fond of caves, but may also be found in abandoned ruins like Labyrinthian. Early in the game, the Dragonborn will encounter a frost troll on the way up the Seven-Thousand Steps to High Hrothgar.


Frost trolls are ape-like, humanoid creatures with long, muscular arms and claw-tipped fingers. The beasts' large mouths are filled with jagged teeth. A frost trolls' most distinctive feature is the third eye in the center of the forehead. Their hide is covered in a thick, shaggy white coat.[1]


Frost trolls are typically hostile to most creatures and rarely back down or flee when faced with a more powerful opponent.

Though very strong, they are not very fast. A troll prefers to pummel its prey into submission with powerful arm strikes and claw attacks.[1] Occasionally, they will roar mid-battle or beat their fists on the ground, making it easy to get a few free hits on them.


Frost Troll Fighting the Dragonborn

Like ordinary Trolls, Frost Trolls have the ability to rapidly regenerate at two heath points per second. As such, a prolonged fight could prove to be very difficult or even fatal at low levels. On further note, a Frost Troll will attack using its powerful, claw-tipped arms to attack the target. Speed and aggression are the key to beating a troll.[1]
