    Okay, have Skyrim for 2 days or so now.

    13 hours played so far and I love the game so much.

    Do the quest line for the companions in Whiterun for a little bit and you'll come to a point where a guy wants you to go outside and duel him. Just free cast on him since only meleeing him will bring the duel to an end.

    Companions will help with that a lot. Increasing your stam also increases your carrying weight as well.

    Does anyone else get a ton of dragon at the College of Winterhold? I've never seen more dragons than in that same spot, dragons aren't to smart because every mage helps kill me, makes me wonder if this is the most helpful area for a dragon to attack.

    The spot on top of the College tower that is used for nothing however is one of the best looking spots to fight a dragon.

    Fought three elder dragons there already. Jazargo and other students helped kill them. They go down like flies.

    I've fought a few there but dragon encounters are random encounters aside from ones with their own general area

    This breaks the game on the PS3 version if you do it for more than a few minutes.

    When I mean "breaks the game" I mean you literally cannot play the game anymore. You can't get quests, communicate with NPC's, buy/sell anything, etc. You can run around and kill stuff I guess, if that's your thing.

    I just did another save on my 'main' toon and I find it amazing that I noticed, I just rounded the 100 hours on that character mark, and I'm still running around, exploring and such. I've played multiple characters (Most with a 'purpose' like joining X faction or being played by specific rulesets) but my 'Main' (Who has finished the main storyline and won Skyrim over for the Imperials) have no ambitions to join Companions or the others. I play him as an Archer, which admittedly is amazingly fun. But I find myself still finding new things, dungeons and suprises even 100 hours in.

    A well deserved GoTY In my humble oppinion.

    You only start encountering them once you start doing the main quest and kill that dragon in the tower:P I didn't do that before I was 40 or so and didn't see any dragons at all.
    Remember remember the fifth of November
    Gunpowder, treason and plot.
    I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
    Should ever be forgot...

    Mainquest has me hooked. Now I have to go to the Labyrinthian.....I don't like long dungeons.

    It's a pretty good game, I bought it yesterday -- but I need to upgrade my PC.

    Horrible lag on the World Map, I wish it was just like the WoW World Map instead of how they have it. >>

    this game is like crack. i have 5 charecters made. played as a heavy/2nd, rogue/bow/stealth, full on mage, 100% vamp illusion/stealth, and a sword and board spellsword/pally. all are above level 50 and the 2hd is maxed at level 81.5 (all skills at 100). was on the skyrim forums and caught wind of a full on healer build that i may try too. basically all you do is heal your companions. anything to keep this game goin. i'm on the 360 so no mods for me

    Whatever you do, DO NOT GO INTO SHALIDOR'S MAZE WITH YOUR FOLLOWER. They will be permanently stuck there, their pathing gets bugged when trying to reach the exit and they will be stuck in there for the rest of the game. Make them wait outside.

    Unless they fixed this in a patch recently. from what I remember there wasnt any news about it.

    Thanks for the warning, but I never have companions with me. I find them annoying. :P

    They are really helpful at times. You can even give them gear to make them worth the while. Although I must say that at some points companions really do suck. They constantly die when facing a group of strong opponents forcing you to leave them (This really sucks when you've kitted them quite a bit) or load a previous save game.
