you need to get a weapon besides iron steel, etc. i always got the silver long sword and just went and did that

you need silver or magic wepons.  they are the same as ghosts.

Magic, or a weapon with magic (I think a regular weapon does damage but i'm not sure). You're at a pretty low level, so start throwing flares until it dies.

Just wack it untill it dies and if it keeps killing you the try to guess when it is going to attack and lock or move back

Use magic/silver/daedric weapons or spells. When it glows red back away because it's going to cast that stupid absorb health/magic spell on you.

When I started, and my wep's could't hurt them, I'd fireball the hell out of them.

silver weap or magic

Use a silver or magic weapon (I doubt you have offensive magic judging by your race and level). Bring potions a-plenty and whack away at it taking periodic breaks to heal. Will-O-the-Wisps are admittedly one of the toughest enemies in the game. The can dish out a lot of pain and it's very difficult to damage them even with the most powerful magic. My offensive magic mage character with mastery destruction has a hard time taking one down.

   Use silver, daedric, or enchanted weapons. Will-O-Wisps are spirits, so they have the same weaknesses as phantoms and ghosts.
#25 Posted by Flaming_Ape (3246 posts) -
You just have to cast a magical spell on it that can cause damage, and you'll kill them before you know it (one example of a damage spell is Flare)

try some spells or an enchanted weapon

LMAO at kyle_1865's sig, plus its best to use weapons and spells at the same time.

There's glow dust in one of the Mage's Guild halls. I think in Bruma.

just use flare a whole bunch of times on it then it will die and you can take those essence things and put them on the statue.
#32 Posted by stevenk4k5 (5605 posts) -
You need to use Silver weapons.
#33 Posted by TigerGuy06 (345 posts) -
Yeah. The hit-and-run with a spell method works the best. Best of luck to you
