Skyrim 1.6: Killing a Dragon on Horseback is Much Harder Than it Looks

As you can hopefully tell from our gameplay, mounted combat has added an entirely new element to the pursuit and demise of the Dovah. (PC, PS3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Xbox 360)

Well, shit. I really need to start playing Skyrim now. I didn't enjoy Oblivion, so I've always been really skeptical. Then again, I barely put any time into Oblivion...
browland1  +   1282d ago
Same. I appreciated Oblivion for what it was, but I couldn't get into it and struggled to make any progress. Skyrim, by contrast, is a game that hooked me from the beginning. I didn't expect it, but hey, the world is full of surprises :)

Yeah the first few levels are a bore, when you get past level 5 and meet all the guilds it's a different story
chairmanlove  +   1282d ago
That's some fine slaying. I need to try this now.

shadowmere can slay dragons on his own x]

Shadowmere was a badass. And then he was gone. I only left him to eat some grass, came back and he wasn't there.

He left sadness, that's what he did. He left sadness.

Where are you Shadowmere, where are you? Can't you hear my calls?

I miss you.

*Spawns Shadowmere*

Ah, there you are!

i dont get why some say this is hard, A BLOOD DRAGON??? thats it? ive made a level 71 assasin who had 100 in archery and it only took me about 4 shots to dispatch one of them and i was using a uninchanted dadric bow sharpened to legendary using ebony arrows and no potions, and do note this was on a ps3 so i couldnt hack this either, put on a vid that is actually worth something, like a video of this only versus a ancient dragon, or at least a elder, and i also noticed how on the blood dragon's second flame shout this guy was already down to half of his health as well, so it isnt all that hard to tell he hacked the game for his bow and arrows, theres only three two ways to get daedric arrows easily either do the pocket and replace teqnique on that one guard in solitude or the thieves guild members, (and even then this takes time) hack the game, or off of dwarven centurions at a certain level, and there max drop is like 11, but you mostly only get 9 off the usaual drop, so this guy is clearly a noob or he has a severe case of rockjoint and the rattles, please make a more impressive video, my fellow elite gamers, i would, and after im done typin this im lookin up ways to video record junk on ps3, so i can show you what im talking about,first this fan made rip-off of the dawnguard dlc, the perv mod and now this, i cant take anymore of these noob videos! this video gets the dislike button crushed :(

Lovethedead1777best  +   1281d ago

Felinox  +   1282d ago
Calm down and go take your meds dude.
Mr Scooch  +   1282d ago
Yeah, pointless video.
I killed an Elder just by looking at it!
Crapped itself so much it drowned.
Would post the video, but I don't like to brag!
Lovethedead1777best  +   1281d ago
lol i love it when i get haters, alright enough of me joking jk jk, i apologize, this guy had it on master or expert alright went and tested it myself, keep forgetting to put difficulty level into my what i say, it is pretty tough, just wondering what kinda feedback i'd get, man i do love trolling people sometimes it can be so fun, but really, if your gonna call me a faggot at least spell it faggot instead of this phaggot ive been seeing lately, and energy drinks? dont get me started, sorry for calling you a faggot Zha1tan i thought about trolling you as well but changed my mind,trolling getting old now and now longer funny to many strict people, sorry you all

Skyrim + Dragons = Fail
I put this game on the hardest setting and with what I had equipped I could kill any dragon with around 4 hits...Pathetic. The Falmor pose more of a threat than the bloomin Dragons in Skyrim!

Now if you want a challenge go try killing a Dragon in The Witcher 2! Damn its mega hard and a real challenge!

It's rather hard in dragon age also.
unknownhero1123  +   1281d ago
tell me about it. I nearly quit the game all together at a cetain quest because of one. I had to cheese my way through it.
Solid_Snake37  +   1281d ago
That dragon outside andraste's tomb was fricking impossible on hard
Tundra  +   1282d ago
Dragonrend and two Daedric Lords and it's dead in a half-minute. They should add another difficulty for those who have top notch end game characters. Master mode feels like Novice now.
ziggurcat  +   1282d ago
okay... but does this update fix any game-breaking bugs?
ninjahunter  +   1282d ago
I havent seen a single game breaking bug in moooonths. What you talking about?
ziggurcat  +   1281d ago
well, the fact that you have to play the game in a certain order or else you're going to have a bunch of miscellaneous quests stuck in your quest log (which i have).

as far as lag goes, that's fixed as far as i could tell. i mean, i had to reboot the game every once in a while because i noticed it chugging a bit, but that wasn't too big of a deal for me. and after a little more than 160 hours of gameplay, i only crashed 3 times, which is amazing for a bethesda game.
jamesensor  +   1281d ago
When first the game came out, there were a lot of bugs, but since update like, 1.4 or something, the game improved a lot. Only trouble I had was with "Blood on Ice Quest" and others sticked on quest log from Bard's College, for example.
llMurcielagoll  +   1282d ago
My god how I miss this game! The joy of having a crappy pc and have to deal with it until the next holiday so I can go back to my home address and play the good stuff! :(
ninjahunter  +   1282d ago
Now if only someone would import the combat system from mount and blade :3

Would be best thing ever.
Vagrant  +   1281d ago
Poor horsies. Destined to be roasted.

Killing a dragon on horseback? I wasn't aware dragons could ride horses.
jamesensor  +   1281d ago
Most impressive. Very much like Mount&Blade! Good update. I'd also love to see more mounted npcs, and that could also fought on horseback. When I played I felt I was the only guy on horse in all Skyrim lol
