    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.

    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?

    1. Get Legendary Wuuthrad mod/175% Barbarian perk mod
    2. Enchant armour with 61% to two handed
    3. Set Alduin's health meter to 110,000
    4. Watch him go down like a sack of bricks
    5. ???
    6. Profit

    Poisons do work with bound weapons. As for mods, Nexus Mod Manager is the Curse Client version for TES. My savegames did blow up at one point - though I am not sure it was caused by mods, so yes, it can always happen. Just like everything else in Murphy's world. They should be safe though. Just be sure to pick the ones with lots of endorsements (like +1s or thumbups).

    Why not just type /tgm or /kill and save 5 steps? If you like to cheat, might as well cheat all the way.

    Mod's ain't cheating, and the enchantments are technically legal. If anything, I'm just making the game harder. Fighting Alduin without adjusting his health meter was a friggin' joke...

    Depends on the mod. Mods that give you overpowered items or stats with no downside, like 175% barbarian perk (this perk you have is now multiple times stronger for no reason) or legendary wuuthrad (you can now make this weapon much more stronger than it was supposed to be) certainly are pure cheating.

    Eh, Wuuthrad should have been the Infinity plus one Sword anyway. And at higher levels, dual wielding outclasses 2H so damn much it isn't even funny. In my view, this levels the playing field.

    And honestly, it isn't really that much stronger than a fully upgraded Daedric warhammer. Which would outclass everything else in the game for a two hander in such a way that it makes you want to run over to Mehrunes Daegon and sodomize him with a butcher's knife.

    Killed Alduin when i was lvl 14. Was quite disappointing and quitted Skyrim for a while, I felt like "I beat the game, nothing to do anymore." Anyway, good thing is that it wasnt the case, game is full of other fun stuff to do so I am back playing

    Best time to fight him is at 36, honestly. I did the ending quest at level 61.

    Out of curiosity, how did you pick that number lol.

    I didn't get to him until 81 because I was too busy doing over 9000 side quests/dungeon clears.

    Wiki said 36.

    61? By the time I was done with sidequests, I decided to just stop postponing it and just kill the motherfucker. Haming's father needed to be avenged.
