    LOL Everyone should play what he likes most. I play a lot of PC games too but Skyrim is much smoother on the xbox for my taste.

    My PC is not the newest either so it is lagging quite a bit.

    Did you by any chance install patch? Makes controls much better.

    being in stealth is damn fun.

    Next charakter I am going to use is Redguard with warrior perks. the adrenaline ability is awesome, such a shame i cant switch race beyond destroying skills.

    PC controls are perfectly playable if you're willing to use the standard WASD. There is a bug with the mouse wheel at enchanting tables and some loot containers, but it's temporary and easily worked around. This is not a valid reason to play it on Xbox over PC and miss out on tons of amazing mods plus console commands that let you do a billion hilarious things. The game will live practically forever on PC through the modding community. Consoles don't get to tap into that longevity.

    Not having enough horsepower is another issue.
    ^ The above should be taken with two grains of salt and a fistful of "chill the F* out".

    Really? I've tried playing with the xbox controller. It makes me want to smash the game anytime I try playing with the controller.

    So after logging 220ish hours, I think it's finally time for me to try a new character... played with the perk calculator and I came up with a ridiculous conjuration-based build, should be interesting. And on a completely unrelated note, is there any word on DLC yet?

    The menus feel better with a controller (or the keyboard, even). The actual gameplay feels better with a mouse/keyboard.

    I don't know I used all of my gaming time for like two weeks and logged around 90 hours. The only reason I stopped is because I have a ton of games I need to play through.

    I'm currently a level 17 Sneak Archer and I'm having a lot of trouble doing the quest "The World-Eater's Eyrie", which is one of the final parts of the main quest. It's the one where the dragon Odahviing takes you to Skuldafn. As soon as I enter Skuldafn, a dragon comes and starts fighting me. As an archer, this dragon is really causing a lot of trouble for me. My Sneak is useless since the dragon can see me at all times because of the area, so I'm forced to try avoiding his crazy high damaging fire breath while trying to backpedal and shoot him in the face. I run out of potions before killing the dragon, and I don't have any time to heal up using my healing spell since the dragon comes and throws fire in my face before I get the chance to.

    Any other archer's that are having/had trouble with this quest? And if so, what did you do to get past?

    I had to pillar humb/ LoS the dragon to heal and such. Also dragon rending just as the dragon starts to fly away gives you another window where you can squeeze a few hits in as he will start to move and then stay and hover for a bit. Other than that patience is all I can really recommend since dragons do not regen health.

    Few obvious answers. First, you are just at the level for that content wouldn't hurt to be a little higher. But, sure you can still do it and are there. With that spec you will need to kite/los/heal loads. The fight is not any special, that's the tactic you will need for many more difficult fights to come. Either be trained hard for it, have the consumables to zerg it, play skillfully and do it, use a sidespec that's more convenient for that type of fight. Or other workarounds, as a sneak/bow spec is a glass cannon that do have it's limitations, that you really need to stretch if you want to.. defeat hard encounters.

    Really. It's your level that assure you get smashed. Go back at lvl 25.

    Going to wear cloth (w/mage armor), dual wield bound swords and have multiple minions. Filling nearly the entire tree for illusion/conjuration/alteration/one-handed, won't even touch destruction. Some points into restoration for necromage, enchanting to boost the effects on my cloth, and alchemy up to concentrated poison/benefactor (I'm assuming poisons work with bound weapons here...)

    So I have yet to install any mods, and this being my first Elder Scrolls, I'm curious how they work. Is there an easy way to manage them? What are the chances my level 81.5 save blows up on me when I start messing around?
