WHAT?!?!?!?! Ima so go Subzero on some scaly-ass now.

16. Mines and Dungeons respawn every month (30 in game days).

17. The "Impact" perk in the Destruction tree will stop a dragon from breathing fire/frost.

18. Re-equiping any item with +## to Maximum Magicka on it, when your mana pool is depleted, will restore that amount.

19. Arrows are now weightless (alot of people did not notice this).

20. Using Lvl 3 Unrelenting Force to knock shit off of cliffs will insta-kill all non-flying enemies.

21. Fire = Damage + Dots (damage over time), Frost = Damage + half of that damage to Stamina, Lightning = Damage + Half of that damage to Magicka.

22. Lightning > Frost/Fire in regards to speed. (how fast it travels)

23. Pickpocket someone who shoots target dummies with arrows, and take the arrows they were using (usually iron or steel). Then, give them one of the arrow type you want more of. They will now shoot that type of arrow instead of the one they were shooting before. Simply collect the arrows as they hit the target dummy to get as many arrows as desired.

24. DO NOT KILL THAT CHICKEN. The people will hate you if you are seen. If you are not seen, poeple will move away.
25. If you go to the fav menu and press left or right on the D pad, you can hotkey the item to that left or right key if you use it frequently. Like potions especially. On PC, you chose 1 thru 8. sorry, pc gets more.
26. To kill a giant with melee, run around it in circles while hacking and slashing or just stay behind it.
27. If you want to be a pacifist, chose Nord. Battle cry is great. Devote training to skills like sneak and illusion. That will prevent any mishaps with enemies in the wild. Potions are ideal also. And restoration if an enemy tries to see if it can one hit you and gets close. Become a werewolf if you want to scare poeple more.
