Potions will help out a lot, if you have any.




Yes they can :( You have to be careful at higher levels not to kill them by mistake

I never use shields, but i know the ward spells work well against frost and fire
ward spells? you mean shouts?

yeah, can the companions die??
Not really, at least Lydia can't. When her health reaches 0, she'll just get down on her knee and pant for a bit. However, at that point she becomes vulnerable and can die until she gets back up; it's just that enemies are programmed to ignore her when she is down like that.
Im a level 9 redguard too
I'm level ~35 and always have Lydia with me. Granted, I play as a mage with pretty much no defensive ability so I absolutely require somebody else to tank for me :laugh:
Can shields deflect frost and fire?
I'm not sure since I don't use them, but I don't think so as that's considered magic damage.

No, you get spells under regeneration called - lesser ward and steadfast ward. They both increasure your resistance and armour rating when in use.

That's what I do. I run away while Lydia gets beat up and I spam firebolts or ice spikes, depending on what the dragon is breathing.

does someone know whats going on? all help wouild be appreciated

julfen
Well there's your problem. 5770 or 5750? And what's your resolution?

Even though it's not your weakest point, that processor isn't great either.

this game is really starting to piss me off. I have come to my 2nd dragon and i cannot kill him no matter what i try. Ive tried fire and sword and hack away at him but he kills me with either fire or frost. Ive tried bow and arrow, but that barely does anything. Im tempted to go back to whiterun to get my companion(the girl you get) and having her help me
:laugh: That's what the whole practice-and-improve-your-skills thing is all about... Pretty simple man...

I played my first game like this.
This time I don't use any companions.

When it comes to fighting dragons alone, for me it is usually a case of breaking out Ironflesh, and an atronach, shooting arrows, using poison, getting ready to press 'I' if my health gets too low.

At low character levels Dragons are definitely a formidable opponent.

The best way to get potions is to do quests. Also you can use alchemy (use the bench in the alchemists shop)

I think wheat and blue butterfly wings make heath potions, but can;t remember exactly.

I found the best way to kill dragons at lower levels is to hide when they are flying, when they come to land, run up to them and hack and slash.

Make sure you upgrade all your armour too, you can do this many times, not like enchanting where it is a one off perk.

If u c people about, sprint towards them, and they'll help against the Dragon,........ but I think somewhere between L20-25 they should be much easier to take down by oneself.

Benchmark Scores 2cm mark on bench with a razor blade.
i asked the girl on whiterun inside thatbuilding straight ahead right when you enter the market and she told me about the burned tree in whiterun and to talk to Danica the priest in the temple to bring it back to life. And so i am doing that quest now.
If you think dragons are tough, wait till you meet whats on that quest.

Go do some quests man, you get far more gold robbing Tombs and selling weapons :D

Go find a crypt with mages or vampires, their robes sell for decent amounts and don't weight a lot.

Also you'll be levelling up as well so dragon fighting will be easier.

Here's a small tip for you.

It's regarding a certain very helpful spell-tome that's close to whiterun.

There's a bandit camp north-ish of whiterun it has a wooden barrier around it.No mages and such there but it's guarding a mine the mine is FILLED with Iron ore ( and obviously bandit goodies!) as well as a book called transmute, it turns iron ore into silver ore and silver ore into gold ore.

Use the gold ore to make gold jewellery and you'll be rolling in the money! :laugh:

A good way of making yourself strong:
Make shit loads of Iron Daggers. this raises smithing really quickly and cheaply, then sell daggers this increases speech. Together they will raise your level by about ~7, and you will have top tier armour gear at a low level. Now you wont get cut up as badly. Also ignore Dragon armour, completely pointless.
