Skyrim: The Slowpoke by Isriana Skyrim: The Slowpoke by Isriana
It's all true, and I regret nothing!! :iconlawooplz: It was time well spent.

So yeah, I did just hit 200 hours with Skyrim - I probably would have made it earlier if it wasn't for the fact that I've hardly touched the computer during summer months (well, until very recently at any rate). In spite of all those hours I have barely made any progress with any of the major plotlines - something which frustrates the heck out of my brother ~Nazahnel. Discussing the game with me is virtually impossible since every other thing he mentions is followed by me yelling "NO! Spoiler! La la la la, can't hear you!"
So there you have it: two hundred hours spent on reading books, picking flowers, lockpicking chests and wandering around doing random stuff... I'm not even sorry. :XD:

Skaila Skaran and Bron Martes me

That's my biggest dislike, and probably only dislike, about Skyrim. You can putter around for 200 hours and 50 levels, and by the time you get around to fighting Alduin, he's gone from invincible dragon to utter pushover.

Well, from a real life perspective, you have not, and will never do anything when you play Skyrim. But real life is boring

I didn't even go to report the attack on Helgen until I was about 100 hours in, most of that time was spent becoming Harbinger of the Companions and marrying Farkas...

In game distractions are a very real thing.
I am only 540 hours in of which atleast 40 hours are playing traveling merchant.
It is just so fun to avoid questlines and play with characters.

1280 hours and only three dead Alduins under my belt.
I spend way too much time finding Shouts... :P

Pretty much like me here. Its a mess!
College of Winterhold? Nope, still stuck at Mzulft.
Civil War - Stormcloaks? Didn't even get The Jagged Crown.
Thieves Guild? I need to retrieve the Skeleton Key.... Yeah, right. You're dreaming Karliah!
The Dark Brotherhood? I need to assassinate the Gourmate dude.
Companions - Not gonna join them this time around, meh.
Main Storyline? What's tha- oh, I need to talk to the Greybeards.... Riiiiiiiiiiiight. :p

There's a main quest....?

True story. I've been playing for years now and I don't think I'll ever get to the civil war questline.

I noticed the poster for Nightwish; they're an awesome band.  You might like Cruxshadows.  My own Skyrim character has spent nearly fifty hours exploring and becoming the Arch-Mage of the guild; yet I can't seem to be bothered to talk to the Jarl of Whiterun yet...

well.. quests are just guidelines on possibilities what you can do... not what you should do. *nods*

Also, Macurio's little thing with the marshmallows... Well, that's made more than a few days, I'd guess.

The books... I think I have, collectively across all of my profiles, read almost all of them in the game. No joke.

Very cute comic like always, funny too :)
I think I was training with the GreyBeards when I hit the 200h. And I was lvl 30ish. There is too much to do in Skyrim XD

It's true, the funnest times in skyrim are spent NOT doing what you're told. ... WHICH IS WHY I CAN'T STAND the fucking Theives guild! (No offense to anyone who likes them, this is a personal rant.) They are so fucking strict about everything. And apparently their way is the only way to make a lot of Gold. Tell that to my dragonborn who gains 2 million every playthrough, by killing bandits and selling their gear.

By the way, unrelated tip about gear. If you don't like cheating, using mods, or anything of the sort, and don't have enough strength to carry anything, your follower can carry an infinite amount of stuff without slowing down. Place everything in a container, and have them loot that container. They will be able to carry it all, and then some. This was useful on the Ps3 version on those long dungon raids where I took everything that had a single septim's worth of value.

Someone should make a mod where you can equip marshmallows and then when you use flames it makes smokes

I took a mod that makes a book glow if you haven't read it. It's brilliant!
BlazinVoid Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2014
I have almost 300 hours in, and I have yet to even go to the College of Winterhold (Except when I stole the books from the library), and also haven't even talked to Jarl Balgruuf. I just go on to the Dark Brotherhood and Companions.

Omg, I just noticed, he's using the skeleton key!! I never become the Guild master either because who in their right mind would give up a lock pick that never f*****g breaks!??
sc13an Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2014
Its kinda a waste to keep sense theres a Lock picking skill for the same effect.
Catlady880 Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
This made me laugh so much!!! XDD I never do the Dragonborn quest or civil war (because both sides are bad imao). I'm more Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood. : )

I'm only to 196 hours on my Steam account...then I got grounded for not lifeing...(I hadn't done any homework in like a month and every waking second was spent in Skyrim.) I literally went through withdrawals for the first couple weeks. I always take a buch of screenshots so I can remember my gameplay and reminisce. Some of the best times of my life have been spent in Skyrim...I miss Cicero...

I picked a side in the war pretty quickly... my Argonian character is all super-opinionated and stuff, and, well... Imperials. Kill them. That's about it. She's not the biggest fan of Ulfric, but she gets along with Ralof pretty well... but yeah, main quest, what's that?
SoggyBrownies Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2013  Student General Artist
I have a level 50 thief/vampire/assassin I've written fanfictions about and I still haven't finished the main quest line or picked a side in the war Dx In my defense, I'm trying to stick to her character, and she is indifferent to the war. Then again, I also have a nord warrior and a high elf sorcerer...

There's a main quest O.O  When did that happen XD
