Yea, this seems like an obvious choice for turn undead, I've used it quite a bit on lower level zombies/skeletons with good success.

I ran into the same problems with Dread Zombies when I was at a lower level - they were simply invincible. When you see some of their constant effect magic abilities you understand why.....

Resist Disease 100
Resist Frost 30
Resist Magic 30
Resist Poison 100
Weakness to Fire 60 (woohoo!)
Restore Health 5

It's the last one that gives you the most grief - you've got to dish out a *lot* of sustained punishment to kill them. Problem is, fatigue sets in and you can't maintain the level of damage you're inflicting. Try to avoid fighting 'em until you're stronger!!

I haven't come across one of these yet, but I am thinking...

-Conjure Skeleton, that will keep their focus off you for a few seconds
-Your best fire based attack as fast and often as you can manage
-Conjure another Skeleton since your first one is likely dispelled by now
-Blunt weapon attack, keep the Daedric Mace handy
-More fire
-If they still aren't down, Turn Undead

Let you know when I finally come across one...

Depends what level your character is on?

Make sure you at least have one fire based spell, use a claymore swipe and backtrack before it attacks. If you go toe to toe against them you usually die.

These are lvl 17+ i believe...but I heard that the monsters will level with your charater, so most creatures should be around the same lvl as you are. Low-lvls cannot dish out the constant damage. I was around a lvl10 breton Mage conjurerer, and couldnt get it below 25% before my blade needed repair. I tried with summon scamp, with arrows of freezing, drwarvin bow, 15 fire damage on target spell, weakness to magic 25% spell and switched to a glass longsword. Still couldnt do the consistant damage to keep it beyond its regen.

I even tried to get up high using paint brushes, out of range and used 200 arrows and god knows how many fire balls, and used Summon Flame Atronach scrolls probably wasted in the range of 30 scrolls..still couldnt kill it.

Heres what may help:
- Blunt fire damage weapons
- Fire damage
- Weakness to magic like 100% =D
- Weakness to fire magic 100% =D (if you can create these, dunno)
- 100% chameleon and sneak attack the hell out of it
- Drain health spells
- Use reflect damage highest % you can cast
- use fatigue potions to keep high damage
- any fire damage summons

oh yeah and what may also help is using those 'damage xx health over xx seconds' potions. This will help with debuffing that regen health they got.

But all in all low lvl chars are best to sneak by and just avoid em..they not worth the fight. Every higher lvl char says they got no prob in killing em. If you have to kill it...just go lvl up and come back.
