Yeah, I go through horses at a rather alarming rate. I fully admit, I want Dragonbone weapons. Just because, yeah...

Might be a long wait, SS. We PS3ers are always last on the list.

I haven't download the latest update because I've heard it does some nasty things to certain quests I've haven't done yet.
Heck, I don't need no DLC--I'll settle for a bug-fix update that actually REMOVES all the 'repeat quests' that I can't do because the map shows the areas as "cleared" or lets me get rid of all the stupid things in my inventory I no longer need because the quests are done. And I don't use no stinkin' horses anymore because the stupid dragons keep killin' em all off.


I'm playing on pc so I don't know if it is any different for you;

When if an area is marked "cleared", creatures etc. still respawn so I can still return to complete quests.

Removing obsolete items from the inventory after the quest is complete is a pain but can be achieved with the console command "player.drop [item code] 1" or "player.removeitem [item code] 1". A list of the 'item codes' or bug fixes can be found with a little searching HERE under the individual quests.

I've always found horses (and followers) more of a hindrance than a help and use neither where possible. :D
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

PC version too. Steam workshop has some handy additions but only got a few.
My first character is so strong that dragons run away and I can't keep up, horses are useless.
Started again a while back focusing on magic this time but was waiting for expansion. So much going on right now that it'll have to wait til Xmas.

We neglected PS3ers don't have have the Dawnguard update yet, not that I'm particularly itching for it--not for $20, half the price of the full game, that is.

It's sad really. I know that there is a problem like that with Mass Effect 3. I'm sure that I read somewhere that the 360 gets priority with regard to DLC's and Skyrim, not sure if this is the same for ME3 though.

I think I'm somewhere near that, but I've kind of put it aside because I've essentially done just about everything and all that's really left for me is to finish the main story. After that, all that's left is just wandering around killing stuff. Or do the Thieves Guild stuff which really doesn't interest me all that much.

I still have to do at least the academy of wizards plot, and that will take some time, since every time I try to go back to the academy the anciend dragon eats me alive :roll:

Yeah, they stink. I usually turn it down to novice level when I'm having problems with anything.

I think I'll try lowering the difficulty, yes, that might be a good idea. Usually I could manage with dragons, I made myself a nice light dragon armor thanks to them :D , but this ancient one is a tough one :!:
(and I could do with a heavy dragon armor too, now that my light armor ability is already 100%)

Lord, I'm going to start sounding like one of this game nerds here, but when fighting dragons it always helps to figure out which of magic attack (flame, ice, whatever) they typically use and then equip yourself with a shield or armor that defends against magic and/or that element. The fire/cold/whatever resistance and regeneration potions help a lot as well.

And while I won't spoil too much for you, if you're having trouble defeating certain things I recommend that you focus on finishing the Daedric quests. They can be tough, but at the end they give you the best weapons, armor and headgear you can get without smithing and enchanting.

:lol: I don't play a lot, last game I did was Oblivion and that's it ;)
I'll try all that, also I still have to do the daedric things, I haven't paid them much attention until now.
