Top 10 Dragon Shouts

July 31, 2015

14353-5-1333582542

Well, it’s been awhile since I’ve done a top 10 list of anything, so I’d figure a list for the best and most useful shouts (in my opinion) was an order. Of course, this ranking is pretty loose, I tried setting them in order but like most gameplay elements shouts have more usefulness depending on the situation.

Also mild spoilers.

Anyway, let’s get to it!

Japhet’s Faulty

July 13, 2012

Oh my god is this quest ever glitchy. Geez.

I came across this quest (Rise in the East) by accident, actually. It was just basically a standard game of fetch, help out some guy by getting some proof of these pirates helping someone else, get into a bar fight (always fun), then go on a ship to some god-forsaken freezing block of ice floating in some river, and kill said pirates. Woo.

So basically, when I got off the boat, I was told to go kill a wizard because he was making fog and everyone else is apparently too much of a wuss to go into the fog themselves. Geez, where have I heard this before? 😛

So off I go, Iida or Ilda or whatever her name is, hopping (well…more like sneak rolling) over some ice blocks to get to this mysterious island in the fog. Woo.

When we finally get there, I snipe a Blood Horker (the pirates) and all hell breaks loose.

“O-DAH-VIING!” I scream as I promptly get a fireball in the face.

Odahviing did not come.

What.

The.

Fuck?

I respawned, and tried again. I got close enough to actually get ONTO the island…but I couldn’t. I couldn’t find a way up. What?

Then I took a fireball to the face.

GODDAMN MAGES URGGH.

New plan!

Swim around the island…maybe there’s a back entrance or something?

So as I’m swimming…I change the camera angle below myself…just looking around, doing what a swimming Dovahkiin does…

…Then I realize I need to come up for air…

So I swim up.

And up.

And up.

And even higher up.

Above the water.

Above the shore.

Almost to the top of the mountain.

…Wait, what?!

I look down below me as I’m floating in invisi-water, and see the shore below.

HOW AM I SWIMMING?!

I’M SWIMMING IN MID-AIR, WHAT.

Like this, only in like…a crapper, more annoying location.

Oh, Skyrim, you.

Taking full advantage of this, I use it to swim around to this ledge behind the fortress on the island. I sneak on.

Sneak, sneak.

FUCKING MAGE APPEARS, FUCK.

“O-DAH-VIING!!”

No Odahviing.

GODDAMN IT, YOU STUPID FLYING RED DRAGON, WHERE ARE YOU?!

I die.

This goes on several more times, with me using the swimming glitch, until somehow, magically, I manage to FUS-RO-DAH! that goddamn fucking mage off the cliff. The rest of the bandits went down pretty easy.

Until I came across one swimming.

SWIMMING IN THE AIR.

IN FRONT OF ME.

I stepped in front of her, confused.

I start swimming, too.

Having a better idea, I back away and hit her in the head with my Daedric Battleaxe.

That was easy.

Then I swim away to the tower.

Swimming in the air…

~~

Fast forward to the end of the mission, I’m getting bombarded by fireballs.

“FUCK–” (KABOOM) “–WHERE THE HELL–” (BOOM) “ARE THESE GODDAMN FIREBALLS–” (BOOOM) “–COMING FROM?!” I go back to the captain of the ship who brought me here.

“Sorry about the fireballs, gotta make sure all the bandits are dead. Hope you didn’t get hit by any. We wanna destroy this island.”

COULDN’T YOU HAVE FUCKING WAITED UNTIL I GOT BACK TO THE BOAT? I HELPED YOU GUYS.

NPC LOGIC RIGHT THERE, FOLKS.

And then I only get paid $1500 for doing this mission.

POCKET CHANGE.

Oh well, another (glitchy) quest bites the dust.

Even though I was the one eating fireballs.

(Can you tell I haven’t been very inspired to write lately? :P)

(EDIT: Oh, apparently if you fast-travel back to Japhet’s Folly, you get stuck there, just like if you return to Misty Grove in the quest A Night To Remember. Fix this, Bethesda!! …I might have missed something. XP)

Dark Dragon Crossing

June 18, 2012

(Image Credit: Elec1 @ Skyrim Nexus)

Every once and a while, I get bored with just doing quests and sorting inventory. Every once and a while, I like to go out and slay dragons like a complete bad ass (usually, it doesn’t work out so well).

So, I went to the usual dragon-sighting hot spots as usual:

Just outside Markarth – Nothing.

Dragon’s Bridge – Nothing.

Just outside Riften – Nothing.

Darkwater Crossing – BINGO!!

Every single time, every damn time, I fast travel to Dark Water Crossing, there’s always been a dragon there to greet me. Even two, sometimes. Anyway, I came across and Elder AND an Ancient. And unlike the times were two dragons appeared before, these two actually stuck around.

Shit.

The battle took an hour. I grabbed my enchanted glass bow (73 dmg + fire and ice effect), got some ebony arrows and fired them all at the Elder first (get the weakest out of the way, you know?) I called Odahviing, and the epic battle of three dragons commenced.

I shot arrows when I could, and I observed Odahviing defending me as the dragons did aerial loops and crazy dives. What was good about this fight was that the two enemy dragons actually went after each other for awhile. Meanwhile. the stupid NPCs of Darkwater just kind of sat around there campfires like this was some common occurence (which, by the way, it very well may have been, since dragons seem to swarm there).

Eventually the battle dragged away from the village, and into a bandit camp which was completely annihilated. I used Become Ethereal to dodge attacks when needed (which, by the way, with Otar’s elemental defense boosts, saved my ass a few times).

What actually helped save my ass. Thank you, Otar. ❤

Finally, I used Dragonrend to get the Elder to the ground, on top of this small mountain. I pulled out my recently found Daedric battleaxe, and went to take the final blow.

The Elder dragon breathed fire on me, and I went to dodge.

…And I fell off the cliff and died.

FUCK.

MY.

LIFE.

Fail.

XD

The next day I played again, killed the Elder, and finally I only had the Ancient left. Booyah!!

He ate me.

FDJKGDFJKGH

I did finally manage to kill him, and with a surge of pride at killing two tough-ass dragons, I absorbed their souls and felt MY SUPAR DOVAHKIIN POWER!!

Odahviing bid me a fare-thee-well and I stood around feeling bad ass.

Because that’s what a Dovahkiin does when he/she’s not slaying dragons.

Just being a motherfucking bad ass.

Booyah.

An Elder, An Ancient, A Frost & A Certain Red Dragon

April 12, 2012

Not exactly any of the above, but it pretty much displays an epic dragon-ambush. And I have better armor.

Oh my god.

I just had the most epic dragon moments in the past few days.

Minor spoilers…

Mini Post: “Mey Dovahkiin, Geinmaar Nis Aan Aar. Aan Dovah Alok Fod Mu Fent.”

March 12, 2012

"Geh. It is my promise, Dovahkiin. But do not expect me to be at your beck and call. I am not your pet."

Sorry for the long title.

Also my dragonspeak kind of sucks, forgive me.

THIS POST CONTAINS MINOR SPOILERS FOR THE END GAME.

Dovah Frunt, Kotin Strunmah

February 13, 2012

Oh dragons, you lovely dovah, you. You always show up at the worst times, insult me, then bite my head off and toss me away like a ragdoll. Oh dragons, you’re the best.

Is there a shout for, “FUCK OFF!”? XD

I swear, everytime Alduin talks to my Dovahkiin, it always feels insulting even though I usually have no idea what he’s really saying. So I say, “Back up yours, dragon breath!” Ha! That’ll teach him.

…Or he can just summon meteors and not give a fuck, either or.

I haven’t had many dragon glitches in my…200 hours? of Skyrim so far. No, dragons randomly flying away in the middle of battle don’t really count. I like to think of them as chickens and I try to chase them, but they fly, so they cheat and get away. Thanks, stupid dragon. I wasted like 50 arrows on you.

Anyway, here’s some of the issues and odd moments I’ve come across:

Surprise! Dragon attack! Mmmm, delicious Dovahkiin…OM NOM NOM NOM!!

Once, I was near a mine–perhaps it was Darkwater Crossing, I can’t remember–I was on a hunt for a pickaxe because I recently found some silver ore somewhere. Anyway, as soon as I fast traveled there with Marcurio (this was my first character), I heard a roar and thought, yeah, bring it on!

So a dragon arrives, lands on a house and starts breathing fire everywhere. No big deal.

Until another roar.

TWO DRAGONS. YES, TWO. AT ONCE. AND NO, THEY DIDN’T BATTLE IT OUT AMONGST THEMSELVES (that would have been too epic), BUT INSTEAD I HAVE TO KILL BOTH, AT ONCE. FIRE AND ICE. BLAHH!!

So, I ended up with a lot of dragon bones and scales when I was finished, funny thing was they both died right on top of each other. So it was just a pile of dragon skeletons! XD

Afterwords, I finally got my pickaxe and set out aways to check out the area.

…And a Blood Dragon landed right in front of me.

WHAT THE HELL WHERE DID YOU COME FROM–

JUST COME OUT OF NOWHERE, WHY DON’T YOU?

After I killed him, me and Marcurio had wayy to many dragon bones to carry. XD

Also, there’s the “Surprise! Peak-a-boo!” dragon that’s just a tease, shows up then disappears, shows up at the same place later, and flies away, etc. I had this problem with a Blood Dragon outside of Riften for a long time…it always seems to be those damn Blood Dragons!!

Then more recently, the same thing happened (ironically), at the Dragon Bridge. The dragon killed me twice, and the third fast travel there, he flew around and roared a bit, then he left. I guess he didn’t like the rain or something…

For the very first dragon fight in the game, I had a dragon who suddenly decided to fly very, very slowly, literally maybe more like 75% slower than it should be. It certainly liked the hang time it had doing a nose dive, and breathing fire everywhere. Made it really easy to shoot though, but it looked really weird when he started roaring.

The rest of this post contains moderate spoilers for the Main Quest. If you haven’t gotten past The Throat of the World quest, and don’t want to get spoiled…I wouldn’t read anymore. Plus it also contains a few end-game spoilers, too.

Special Post: I Finished The Game!!

February 7, 2012

Well, okay…you can’t really FINISH Skyrim, I mean, come on, really…but, I did finish THE MAIN QUEST!!

😀

I finally got my ass into gear and sat myself in front of the television today and told myself, “Enough excuses!! Today is the day you defeat the World-Eater with your mighty Thu’um and save all of Tamriel from destruction!!”

And so I did.

(The rest of this post contains HUGE SPOILERS from here on out for SKYRIM and the…well, you guessed it…THE MAIN QUESTLINE!!)
