@crimsonbrute: @horgen: That's a shame. I would at least hope to meet some of the other mods and greet them. Guess that won't happened anytime soon :(

Some will drop by to say hi I hope

Anyhow you or Crimsonbrute we talked about how the dragon fights in Skyrim are sorta cheap since they aren't rare. I started a new adventure in Skyrim a few weeks ago. I've had 2 random encounters in over 30 hours of gameplay. For once they are actually rare.

@horgen: 3 encounters in one session not including that troll dragon that just goes around in circles overhead out of reach of spells and arrows.

@crimsonbrute: Our experiences are so different. I need more dragon souls yet struggle to meet dragons. You got the opposite problem I guess.

I don't think I ever had them all unlocked. Maybe I should go for it this time.

I mean I have another character, level 130-ish... But shouts. Nah.

@horgen: In this last run I did, I decided to go for all shouts, all locations completed, all hidden perks, etc. Not necessarily a 100% playthrough.

@horgen: I return to Skyrim about 4 months ago. I did however notice Dragons will appeared out of nowhere for me that is. But however, Dragons do appeared whenever I go to far regions with no village close. I do go on a Dragon hunt from time to time. Maybe it's just me but the Dragons seems to be much easier to kill then I remember.

I've done a lot, but never bothered to get all of it.

Also this time I play with mods, so to get all perks would require reaching level 400 or so. How many hidden perks are there? I've never thought about them before.

I know where a couple of Dragons spawn, so I've been to those places and fought a few. As for the random encounters. They have gone from normal dragon to Elder dragon. Nothing in between.

2 that I know of (or just stumbled across). One is useful if you use healing magic a lot. Gives you 10% bonus to health recovered using any healing magic and the other requires doing the 24 stone thing from the Thieves Guild. It just greatly increases the the chances of finding gemstones. Handy if you are low on cash but by the time someone get it, it's probably useless.

I'm sure there are others but I can't remember what they are or what they do.

Stones of Barenziah? I always use a mod for those.

Anyhow I have now run into a problem. The game will freeze at the same point always. Makes it difficult to finish this one quest.

Yup. Had that happen to me in one playthrough, the entire area surrounding one farm would crash my game anytime I got close. Not even fast travel worked. Couldn't finish the quest involving those red plants that make that annoying high-pitched whine noise when they are near by. I failed to finish the quest and get the 25% chance to create 2 potions/poisons perk.

@davillain-: Not the quest, It's the area. I couldn't get close to the area or the quest giver was because a large area surrounding it was bugged. The game crashed anytime I got near it.

Didn't happen in other playthroughs.

Edit: The quest is called "A Return To Your Roots". The area around Sarethi Farm was glitched or bugged. Some other nearby locations were also glitched.

I didn't experience it myself, even though I did that quest on one play through.

I'm doing a quest in a dwemer ruin. The one in Markarth. Got 3 of the journals. Now if I walk forward about 100 feet, something will load and the game freezes. Any tips on how to problemshoot the game?

I found many without a mod, but then I got lazy. :P

I never truly left, personally. I'm just an occasional poster now. What's really unbelievable is that it's now been nearly 6 years since the whole site redesign.

I do like the new layout but I personally hated when they screw up the avatars again by making them smaller and now, they are all in circles. Bring the box avi's back GS.

I remember when GS first changed the format before this current one, there was a beta on the new look and they had circle avatars. A lot of the testers were upset about it and it was changed when the site went live. It seems these people weren't aware of the backlash.

Before the boxes there were circles and we couldn't even have animated avatars.
They could have reduced the size back down to the old box size I guess.

Yeah, that's maybe the biggest change. Blue theme instead of orange.

I dealt with some. They shouldn't be here in the first place though.
