Haven't played that much yet but I was trying to get to the wizards college so I was riding towards the town nearest to the college. (The small one before the big town it's in) I got there and was thinking I'd just ride on through and (SPOILERS)
BAM! Dragon attacks! WTF, where did he come from!? BOOM DEAD! So I reloaded and go off my horse and got ready to fight. Must have died 4 times trying to kill this guy. He didn't breath fire, he was a frost dragon I guess. So each fight that I got him low enough on health he'd go land on the far side of the bridge at the edge of town then he'd own me as I tryed to get close to him.
So after several deaths I started the fight again and as this son of a bitch often does he flew off into the mountains above the town for a rest and I waited for him to come back. He pops up again and starts flying towards the left but stays up in the mountain, then I see him attacking something up there. Then he lands and his hit points are going down then all of the sudden all quiet... WTF?! Something just killed the dragon way up on top of the mountain. How the hell am I supposed to absord his soul!?
So I start up the mountain and as I get higher it gets harder and harder to see. I have a rough idea where he was so I'm looking around in blizzard conditions trying to find a dead dragon and suddenly I'm face to face with a Giant. He doesn't attack right away so I run off realizing this @$$hole must have killed the dragon. I spawn my flame slut (i'm a conjurer) and start a fight. He goes down pretty fast but my flame slut gets killed several times. Then I'm standing there looking around and I still don't know where this dragon is!? And this guy was wandering around the middle of the woods. I can't see more than a few feet in any direction. I spend the next 10 minutes just traveling in circles around where I killed this giant looking for an enormous dead dragon. I eventually find him lying between trees behind bushes perfectly concealed. I'd never have known he was there if not for the prompt on screen that said search dragon.
I harvested his soul, took his bones, and spent a few days in town getting myself orgainzed and continued on to the college.
Love this game.
