Yesterday I grabbed my courage and decided to bring the fight to Alduin. After weeks of postponing, it was both exhilarating and scary. I have finished all the major quest lines save for the Companions’, and really, apart from a few individualized side-quests, it feels like there is nothing much left for me than the never-ending “Radiant” quests.
While finishing the main story, I committed two major errors. The first: I went in there with too high a level (65), according to what I read somewhere 35 is the best max limit otherwise it will feel anti-climactic; Second error: I was armed with Merhunes’ Razor! Yes, and unluckily, the darn thing activated during the final fight……after 2 hits….. There I was facing the World-Eater himself in epic battle and the Razor activates on the SECOND hit!!!!!!!!! What’s worse than the hardest last boss? Well, obviously, it’s the easiest.
Now that I’m done, I will end the Companions’ story and beyond that…..there are tons of achievements to get, items to hunt for and dungeons to clear. Along the way, I am bound to find some interesting sidequest to keep me busy. In the meantime, I have installed Kingdoms of Amalur, I just hope all the hype is worth it though I doubt it can ever replace Skyrim in my heart.”
