Took me forever to kill a rabbit with a bow. Damn critters are fast. Then when I was playing this weekend I was running back to Whiterun trying to get there before 8PM when I flushed a rabbit. I had this irrational hatred for it so I put on Sparks and ran it down and zappped it. Seeing it there laying on the road dead made me all sad so I wont kill any more cute bunnies for the rest of the game.

Ah. I never did figure that out. Once I found a bow of binding, that was my means to trap souls. I'm to the point where soul trapping is pretty unimportant. I've found so many gems, and since I have plenty of gold to burn, I just buy filled grand gems every time I find one for sale. I'm sure glad I didn't go back 8 hours of game time to get azuras star back.

If you pull up the stats screeen, you'll notice that it keeps track of this. It'll tell you the number of humans murdered, number of dragons slain (souls absorbed) and Bunnies killed. Apparently, these are the three most critical creatures in the game--none of the other creature kills are tracked.

Ahh, there must be an achievement attached to it.

Tells a lot about the character of the player.
They are right up there with dragons in the work necessary to kill them. Those things are fast!

A number over 10 probably shows a serious attention deficit problem. Getting distracted even by bunnies.

Skyrim has a double barreled shotgun? Where can that be found?

I did have a spell in Morrowind and Oblivion called the BFG9000...but no shotgun, unfortunately.

After that, quests will become my main focus, and I should start knocking them out and might eventually reach the point where I can turn to the main story line and not feel like I've skipped too much.

I made it! Getting alchemy to 100 was a pain compared to the others, but it's there now, and I only have one more perk to get everything for the alchemy/enchanting/smithing maxed out. My outfit I currently use is alchemy +22%, so I may need to make a couple more sets before I hit max potential.

I really need to find a fix for the city I can't go back to due to a glitch. I now have three quest lines stalled due to me not being able to go back there and talk to anyone.

Are you playing on PC or console?

Sneak is getting up there at 93 now but archery is so slow to go up, I've reached 74 and it is the main weapon I use to kill things. Want to get both of those to 100 and fully skilled up and then I'm going to focus on enchantment and see about improving my quest armor that I'm wearing. Enchanting seems quite a bit easier to raise since I just gather gems and weapons/armor on side quests and then disenchant what I can and enchant any items I have left over, sell it all and do it again.

xbox. It's a well known problem. I had hoped the last update would have addressed it, but no luck there.

Great... somehow Vilkas died on me and now his dead body is following me wherever I go.
I just took him with me to have him handy when leveling up. He was my two handed teacher.

To get my pathetic Illusion rating up, I am casting muffle when walking around.
Works great.
I really have to work on pickpocketing and sneaking.

I'm thinking about killing that bastard. He's glitched in my game and every time I go back to (whatever that city is), he follows me around and starts a talking dialog about every five seconds. I can't get him to shut up, or go away. He even follows me in to my house.

Sneak is easily leveled by going into a room where everyone is asleep or can't see you. Activate sneak while walking into a wall, tape down the walk button, and go take a shower, take the dog for a walk, or go to bed.
