Right click Skyrim in Steam and choose "backup game files"

Never did backup game files on steam before. I kinda figured it would take an hour or so for 8.8GB of Skyrim data. It took less than 1 min 30 secs.. redface.gif How's that even possible? headscratch.gif

Do many of you find you obsessively collect zillions of potions, weapons, and other items (like me) that you've never bothered to use and that you really don't need to use? I've got tons of potions of different poisons for instance and have hardly used any. I seem to be able to take out all enemies comfortably without using them. I only really use restore health potions from time to time, stamina now and then, and blacksmith and enchanter elixirs. For weapons, I tend to just stick with half a dozen daedric weapons I've strengthened and enchanted, and mostly I use my daedric sword of burning in one hand, and a staff of frost atronach in the other for distracting tougher enemies. But I still collect every single weapon or piece of armour I find if it's over the value of 600 gold and give it to my mule, lydia. She must be carrying over 2000 weight in items at the moment. Most of those are to sell and I don't need the gold now, but I can't help collecting them anyway. And even if I picked up a weapon or item that could be quite handy in certain combat situations, I soon forget that lydia even has them tongue.gif


My first character was such a packrat that I was encumbered almost constantly, even with 250 stamina. I got so used to being encumbered all of the time that I essentially traveled by power attacking with a greatsword while walking forward and using wind-sprint (short cooldown mode) whenever my stamina wore out. Combining that with master level difficulty made combat with mages very challenging, to say the least. I think my record encumbrance was 2,500+ lbs. By all rights, my character should have been crushed. (This was with the weightless armor perk.)

 

When I made a second character, a mage, I vowed to only pick up high-value magical items, magical items I could disenchant, or useful potions, lockpicks, and gold. I've never been encumbered, even when looting 2 dragon kills worth of scales and bones.

Is there a reason you didn't buy a house(s) to store the stuff?

Has anyone come across an Ancient Dragon? How did you defeat it?

After finishing my epic battle with King Olaf, I got out of the barrow and was greeted by this lovely Ancient Dragon. It was like a 'love at first sight' where I get knocked out sooooooo many times biggrin.gif I am still thinking of a way of how to defeat it. BTW, I am only at level 37 and have no idea why this 'not-your time-yet-to-be-here' dragon spawned in front of me. mad.gif

You will probably need resistance against frost or fire (Depending on what your Ancient Dragon is spewing at you). You can use potions or enchanted gear to accomplish this. If you find it too difficult, you could always run away, or get the dragon to follow you to a city or a place where there are some people who could help you defeating it.
