Slaughterfish do very little damage when they attack, and do not attack particularly rapidly. Thus even a level 1 [[Last Dragonborn|Dragonborn]] on Legendary Difficulty can dispatch them with only modest organization, or even more easily avoid them. The only trick is that the Dragonborn cannot unsheathe weapons or cast magic underwater, therefore:

*Slaughterfish can easily be killed while underwater by wearing the [[Ebony Mail (Skyrim)|Ebony Mail]], due to the Mail's damage effect. Cloak [[Spells (Skyrim)|spells]], such as [[Flame Cloak]], are also effective against the fish if cast before entering the water, as spells cannot be cast under water.

*Use the compass to show the general direction of a slaughterfish, and an offensive shout (such as [[Fire Breath (Skyrim)|Fire Breath]] or [[Marked for Death]]) to kill it, as shouts have a large enough damage cone to hit them even if the Dragonborn does not know their precise location.
