Need help getting the dragon to land? We got you covered
1: Make the most of your companions
Trade armour or gear with your follower and they automatically equip the best thing they have. Most followers start out with low-level gear, so it’s a good idea to give them better armour and weapons as soon as possible. If they die, you can just loot it back.
Give a follower a torch and they’ll equip in dungeons or at night, lighting the way for you.
It’s also worth noting that, due to a bug, items picked up by followers don’t weigh anything, meaning they can carry an unlimited amount of stuff. To get them to pick something up, switch to command mode and point at it.
2: Force a dragon to land
Dragons only land if you’re in an open area, such as field or forest; otherwise they just circle above you, spamming you with flames. So if you find yourself fighting one in a rocky or mountainous area, move to a clearing and it should follow you. You can then see the Dragonrend shout...
