Didn't die once, just hid behind as many rocks as I could, and used my companion or whatever as bait... He died, but I came out victorious, so he didn't die in vain or anything...
First time I felt bad in a game though, he'd been with me since the beginning.

That's what happened to me too. I was wandering around dragon roosts and after killing a dragon he appeared out of nowhere. I was about level 20 as well so killing him was no easy task. He was so damn fast that I could hardly hit him with my arrows. I had to sick Lydia on him and just hide away from all the action because I was in no condition to do too much damage to him. Luckily he got distracted by Lydia and stopped moving for long enough that I could shoot him. His mask is probably best though. Either that or the Masque of Clavicus Vile

I love the look of the mask of Clavicus Vile. I've never gotten it myself in Skyrim or Oblivion, but I watched my best friend play Oblivion with it.

So, I found a good map of Skyrim on Wikia. Thanks to this map, I'm gonna be on my way to a certain fort where there should be a sick bow that has over 40 points of damage power.

So what's this "great war" that people are talking about?

I had no problem with the dragon, but Krosis kicked my ass. I reloaded and made sure not to approach the word wall until I kiled the dragon, and I transformed into a werewolf before approaching it. That was much easier.

As for companions, I have Aela, who is essential, so there's no worries about her dying. Apparently, though, you can kill her. I was just messing around once and I decided to fight her (and reload, of course). I ended up chopping off her head.

I stumbled upon it without searching for it as well. I didn't know you could upgrade it.

The High Elves broke away from the Empire and forced the Wood Elves to fight against the Empire with them. The Elves nearly achieved victory, but the Empire won a last major battle and a truce was signed. The conditions of the treaty were very favorable toward the High Elves though and gave them power over the royal family. It is because of the terms of this war that the Stormcloaks seek to break away from the Empire.

Thank goodness I read a book about it early on in dragonsreach or I may have been lost for a while myself. Though it would be kind of silly to take sides in the civil war without looking into the events that have taken place in the years since the Oblivion crisis.

Well, after hearing that about the high elves, it seems both sides are kinda shitty. I still think I'm going with the empire because I don't want those Jarls to go to prison.

I have found this mask by accident, instant fav and upgraded it to Legendary.
As for the mask of Konahrik: When the wearer is low on health, there is a chance that the mask will knock back enemies, heal the wearer and any nearby allies, and grant a fire cloak for a brief time. The healing benefit will raise your restoration skill, and the fire cloak will aid your destruction skill.

It also has a 1% chance to summon a Dragon Preist to fight for you along with those effects.

I paid a Dark Elf to come along with me. 500 Gold for Ebony Mail worth 5000 Gold (which also looks badass)? Seems like a good deal to me. As long as Jenassa wasn't a particularly important character it seems to have paid off for me so far. Plus, you get the Blade of Sacrifice, which is pretty much average isn't it?

No Jarls go to prison. But no matter what side you choose the Jarls that backed the losing side end up n exile.

I don't know if this is another bug of many more in this game but here it goes. Alright so i married Aela the Huntress, and started Battle for Whiterun. OInce i started this quest Aela started running home, i ordered her to wait in the Palace of the Kings with Ulfric (stormcloaks) but she ignored it...well ok? Anyway, once i fast traveled to whiteruni saw her fighting along there, once we were finished she just standed there..i was going to the jarl for my completion, but once i completed this quest Aela just dissappeared! She's not in Breezehome nor Palace of the Kings, i've also tried to look in the Companions building but no luck. What the fuck is going on here? I'm quite pissed of by this.

I've tried to search this shit on Google but the only results were jokes about this, or saying this is a glitch...did any of you also had this problem? If so, how am i gonna fix this?

Update 1.4 patched the trick where you can instantly restock a merchant by saving, killing him, then reloading. I am saddened by this.

I'm a little concerned about the Skyrim DLC, I just don't see how they are going to top the brilliant storyline and immersive characters and world that the main campaign had.

Well, I haven't started the civil war thing, but I'm married to Aela, so I hope I don't get this problem.

So, is Dwarven scrap metal useful for anything? smelting? I'm guessing not, but I want to make sure.

You can make ingots out of it and craft dwarven armor and weapons.

In that case, I definitely have to go back to those ruins I went to for the College of Winterhold. Aela and I both used up out carrying capacity with all the cogs, gyros, gears, and the like. There's a side quest for one of the members of the college who wants that stuff, so I took what I could and put it all in my chest. He gives you a unique summon spell as a reward.

I finished the Blood on the Ice (name reminds me of Bathory) quest only to find that you have to complete either the Stormcloaks quest line or the Imperial Legion questline to be able to purchase Hjerim. dang.

I really want a falmer helmet because you can wear it while still having Krosis equipped, according to UESP. Then again, they also said I could equip a second amulet while weating the Gauldr Amulet, and that didn't work for me. I'm gonna head to a specific place on the map that is supposed to have lots of falmers and I hope at least one of them has a helmet. I fought a bunch of them in the Dwemer ruins I was just in, but none of them had one.

As well as the fact that there's a shitload of dwarven armour lying around, it wouldn't be hard to see what they used to wear.

I find it kinda shitty that the Dwemer were basically like Dunmer with beards. If you played Morrowind, you know what I'm saying. They should have been stocky midget people. Well, maybe they just used a Dunmer model because they didn't bother to make a model for the dude. Then, maybe, it could be some kind of a retcon if they ever decide to feature Dwemer in future titles.

I'm thinking of starting to play this again. It's been in my pile of 4 games that I keep next to my Xbox for... Before even New Year and I haven't touched it at all.

I want to play an Archer, but I don't think it'd be any good anywhere past the beginning of the game, can anyone give me some feedback?

All the mer people are types of elves, even the Orsimer. Meric races use the term "Dwemer," which translates to "deep," "deep-counseled," or "secretive" people. They are alternatively known as Dwarves, a term used by Imperials and possibly created by the giants, the Ehlnofey of the Velothi Mountains. I find it hard to believe that they wouldn't have a specific model for a character as unique as the only living Dwemer on Nirn.

Elder Scrolls takes a different take on many things. I like that they changed up Dwarves a bit.

They used a Dunmer model with facial hair for the one and only Dwemer character in Morrowind, who happened to be a ghost. I think it was just laziness on the part of the developers. I agree that they would most likely have their own type of model if they were a playable race in a game.

Also, I should have realized when I made the comment on how they should basically be really strong midgets that the armor they wore fits regular sized people, so that wouldn't make sense.

Also, I never realized that the orcs were mer.

And how cool would it be to see what the Maormer look like? I imagine them being amphibian like with vibrant, poly-chromatic skin. I'd love to see an Elder Scrolls game that takes place among the several southwest islands, lncluding among several others, Summerset Isle and Pyandonea. What about those "Coral Kingdoms" with the Sloads? Maybe it could even take place in the past, before Yokuda sank. And there could be Kothringi and Lilmothiit who moved west from Black Marsh. And Imga that moved west from Valenwood. unless that's implausible. I don't know. And you could fight the welwa and gheatus.

No way, dude. I use archery all the time. I'm deadly with that shit, now. But it's easy to have a character that excels in archery, destruction, one handed, and two handed all at once. My dude pretty much is super good at all of that.

Archery is one of the most powerful forms of attack in this game. Just make sure you put some effort into getting decent with a blade for those times when you get rushed. Or just learn how to sneak well and take the enemy out without ever entering combat.
