How do you defeat Malkoran in Meridia's quest?

His Frost spell keeps messing me up really bad and I can't get out of the room. Last save is an hour earlier so really don't want to go back that far :(

Use potions which fortfiy your frost resistance and attacking power; try and get in as many sneaky archery shots as possible into him before he notices you. Equip any armour you're carrying that grants frost resistances. If you're really struggling, turn down the diffculty to minimum...

...and save more frequently!

I save a ridiculous amount (I'm currently around save #800) - but it does mean I'll not miss much if I ever need to go back due to a bug/glitch or getting myself into a fight I can't handle (not so much a problem now I'm level 58, tbh!)

If you get in close and bombard him with melee attacks, he often falls back on his ice spike spell that does less (though still lots of) damage. Stevenjameshyde has sage advice - and as Late says, save constantly if you manage to chip a bit of health off.

If your save is before the room, consider sneaking, backstabbing or running the hell away to resupply and bring along a companion to draw fire. If not, keep resisting with potions (the White Vial is very useful if you specced it for resistance), and optionally use Whirlwind Sprint to quickly get out of the firing line. I believe that he also has a slight weakness to fire, as do his shade companions.

EDIT: Once you kill him, be prepared for another battle.

EDIT 2: What level are you?
