Title: Troll Tips

Trolls regenerate health rather fast, and even faster it seems when they are closer to death, Id reccomend if you ever run into one, to use as many spells or ways to maxamise your damage, even if during the start of the fight he looks to be going down well, when he gets to near death, they tend to pick up the regeneration faster it seems.

Trolls are tricky to kill. They can outrun a heavily armored person, they are very strong, and they can regenerate from wounds incredibly fast.

Spells are the fastest way to defeat a troll. Striking them with normal weapons is not terribly effective.

Normal damage, no matter how much, will not kill a troll. It is cumulative acid and fire damage that does them in (so no hurting them with normal swords then finishing with a little bit of fire).

Running away is not always a bad thing...

Good luck!

I feel it may be important to clarify here:

By "normal" damage, I believe The Amethyst Dragon is saying "physical". Weapons and spells that deal physical
damage cannot kill a troll... at least not permanently.

Even weapons with +5 enhancement or better will not do it, because
trolls dont rely on damage reduction. You will need fire or acid. There are many ways
to go about adding these types of damage to your attacks. Spells and alchemical vials
come to mind right away.

Myself, I have found a spell combination that seems to do the job quite nicely.
