You’ve scoured dozens of dungeons and discovered countless treasures. But The Elder Scrolls: Blades holds more than just shiny baubles and powerful weapons. Read on to discover some tips for mastering this gorgeous role-playing game.

Angry, aggressive and difficult to put down, trolls can be a real headache.

Troll trouble
‣ During your journey through Tamriel, you’ll undoubtedly come face-to-face with a troll or two. One of the game’s most reliably challenging enemies, trolls can be hard to kill because of their speedy regeneration.

So pick your poison. While a fire-enchanted weapon is effective against trolls, it’s even more effective when combined with an Aversion to Fire poison. Better still, inflict a Healing poison to slow a troll’s regeneration.

Handy damage
‣ Defence is crucial in Blades. It’s smart to carry a shield, especially if you favour one-handed weapons like longswords, war axes and maces.

But did you know you can wield a one-handed weapon with two hands? Simply unequip your shield and you’ll grasp your sword like a baseball bat, adding significant extra damage to each attack.

Dodging Strike can get you out of a jam – and do some solid damage too.
