I use weapons based on what I'm fighting. Dragon, or someone with a slow-swinging weapon like a mace? I'll use an axe. They're using an axe, 2h weapon, etc.,? I'll pull out a sword. If they're using a sword or something, I'll use a dagger. Lets me get more hits in in between their attacks.

about 10 guards, Fus Roh Dah'd a lot of them. Running like hell, potions, healing spells, hacking and slashing even took off
a few heads! But eventually, Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

It's really hard sometimes not to hit them by accident. If you ever see them go their knees do your best to take the fight away from them so ya don't kill em on accident smile.gif

Ohhh, oops... my bad then frown.gif

I must have killed her... silly girl keeps jumping in front me when I shot arrows and launch fire attacks tongue.gif

Yeah, I could find no other way out of that situation either. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The problem wasn't me - the guards could barely scratch me - it's the fact that once I started swinging my swords, one of the three foes would kill the poor chap, no matter how much I rushed. After about 5 failures, I gave up.
The axe came down.
His head rolled in front of me.
I looted it.
Felt awkward for a moment, but no one voiced any objections. Shrug.

Talking of Lydia, I've just remembered that she has my full set of dragon bone armour, but I haven't even asked her to help me for ages and ages. I need to either just reclaim it and tell her to get stuffed, or give it to the house carl in Solitude and use her as my companion instead. To be honest, even when you give them all the best stuff in the game, companions aren't really worth it. :/

I hate companions with a burning passion.
