    Holy hell. I finished the main quest line at lvl 26. Though I purposely don't want to do EVERYTHING in one play through so you have stuff to do in your next play through.

    That's a good idea but unless it's something supper tedious like I'm pretty meticulous when it comes to finishing a game. I like doing everything before finishing.

    I guess it's sort of because I don't want to finish the game, get a sense of completion and never touch it again.

    This happened to me in Red Dead Redemption, I finished the main questline but I still have 2 stranger missions and a couple of bounty hunting missions to completely before attaining 100% completion.

    On Skyrim the only missions I've been skipping are the Mage School quests. Simply because I believe magic is for pussies.(unless your Gandalf, dude wasn't even a mage though, pretty much a demi god, so it's cool)

    I'll probably do those after I finish all the other quest, maybe after the main storyline and Dawn Guard if I feel like it.

    I've literally not used a single spell in my 100 plus hours of Skyrim.

    My skills levels is nothing worth mentioning, most of them are still at 15, some at 20. Destruction and One Handed are the only ones over 30 as they are the only two skills I really actively use.

    Yeah I'm going to do the same as well. I'm already bored of my Nord chacater as it is so I'm going to make a new one once I finished the game and do all the side quests, then the main ones after.

    This place is part of a side quest, I think starting from a woman in the temple in Whiterun. My favourite location, looks-wise.

    Go to Markarth, go to the keep, talk to Brother Verulus. He should direct you to the Hall of the dead.

    Is that the one where you get the Wabbajack? If so yeah that was pretty fucked up.

    Going to do the cannibal quest. Any other side quests that you guys recommend doing?

    I got the wabbajack just so I can make my companions actually level up. -_-

    Doubt they fixed this problem with the new update but they should have.

    Speaking of nettlebane your only supposed to get one right? I sold that one after getting it but I somehow acquired another one. Pretty weird, must be a glitch.

    I've killed Alduin and now I went back to
    Spoiler:

    The blades and they told me to kill Paathurnax, should I do it? Are there any major repercussions to it? What do I get in return if I do? I know I'm supposed to do some more blades quests after this like some recruitment shit

    Don't think I'm going to do it. I'll do it on my next playthrough. I'll stick with them instead of the Greybeards.

    No idea what it's called or how to obtain it but those mages always shoot those balls of frost 'n shit at you from long range. They're like projectiles rather than cones of lightning/frost/fire.

    Took them down after a half hour frenzy. Threw everything at them: running around cliff-faces, jumping in the holes they left behind in the ice, turning invisible, running away while my companion took the damage, running away, summoning a dragon...the final bit did it.

    Weirdly, a third appeared. Can't get it to attack me though, just keeps flying around.

    I'll give it a 8.5/10. Got some 20/30 hours out of the Vampire questline. A unique follower with many talents, a unique dragon, several beautiful locations, several glorious setpiece battles, a great shout, and a decent story. On the downside: not enough new locations for my liking, doesn't compare with the level of Shivering Isles, doesn't sound like the two paths divert that much. Still, my favourite Skyrim questline after the Dark Brotherhood.

    So I finished this game with a Redguard warrior, tried a new guy, a Dark Elf sneak archer, and accidently saved over my other save. Didn't matter much, because I thought my warrior was pretty boring and a sneak archer must've been awesome and stuff, but mannnnnn, do I miss my warrior now. He was such a beast. My archer is pretty decent too, he can kill a whole camp before they discover me, but dragons are a pain in the ass as you can't sneak them and they always seem to find you. I did get him to become a werewolf, though, which is pretty neat.

    So, I think I'm going to start over again. What do you guys reckon is the most fun? Any suggestions what race I should pick and which skills I should focus on?
