What? You can still favorite things and then you use up on the d-pad to access your favorites. I'm guessing that's what you mean because there are no shortcuts as far as I know.

For those asking how to check what diseases you have, open up your magic menu, scroll down to "Active" and it will show you the disease you have right now and its effect. Just found this out today while playing.

I meant binding specific items and spells to keys like you can on the PC (like 1 for bow, 2 for sword, 3 for shield, 4 for a spell, and so on).

Scrolling through favorites is a annoying in the middle of gameplay and fights.

You could but it doesn't turn you into one. It gives you some effect. I believe it's something to do with you taking more damage from fire or shock. Either way though I found some more blooded vampires locked up in cages.

Just had the quest "In My Time of Need" (i think thats its name) when you have to help out the Redoran chic in Whiterun. Ive gone and found the guy in the dungeons and paid the guards to release him, but they don't let him out. I've even pick-pocketed the key from a guard, but it still wont let me open the freakin cell!
Has anyone else had this problem? and if so, how do u get around it??

After you pay the guard talk to the guy in the cage and it'll continue the quest. You don't have to wait for him to be released. If that doesn't work travel west of Whiterun and you'll eventually come across their hideout.

Best way to kill a dragon is use lightning/frost magica combined(if you have the duel dmg perk) till everything is depleted, then just arrow of frost him to death. He will drop so fast.
Btw, this is one the most natural, involving, immersive, open world rpg i have ever played. The character you created and the complete bonding and control you feel as you explore & gain levels is how RPG's should be done. Easily GOTY for me after i passed the 20hr mark. Bestheda really outdone themselves. 9.5 from me.

Won't work so well if it's the ice breathing dragon.

It's been around 4 hours game-time in there and still safe though. I don't want a house yet until I'm richer. I know I can sell all the stuff in my "storage", but I might use them later.
Has anyone had good luck storing them in Gerdur's house long-term?

Not sure if you can do the quest right away, but when you go to the College of Winterhold you'll get your own room with a bed, dressers, and a chest.

I dropped a bunch of stuff in the Jarl's greathall like an hour or two into the gamea few days ago, and I still kick it around when I'm going down the stairs ~15-20 hours of gameplay later. That's really cool.

You can...... favourite something, go back to game, open favourites menu hover over the item press desired number. Sorted
