This is a grossly inaccurate depiction of my gaming habits. I spend very little time walking in slow motion in the woods because of too much loot. I mean, I’ve got a horse.
well yeah, of course you have to loot everything! You never know when wooden plates come in handy
Lucky me I guess. I range in between you two. I've looted everything that's worth more than it's weight in gold whilst on my way to Riften. I found myself in Solitude about three hours later still not having arrived at Riften.
I know how you feel, Zenat, I know how you feel...
I don't go around stealing plates, but I still always have more loot than I can carry, and can't make myself put it down. In the end I always cheat a little with a console command to tweak my endurance just enough to get back where I can sell/hide it >_>;;
One thing I discovered was that I really, really wanted all of the super heavy dwarven metal from this one dungeon. This happened to put me over 3000 lbs of loot. I used the werewolf transformation because it still moves at full speed.....
....but then a dragon and an entire town tried to kill me at the same time, instead of each other. A bandit tried to rob me. I discovered that, yes, mudcrabs are still bastards.
@Amare: It is wonderful to explore Skyrim... Until you reach the well. You fall right in there and get stuck, and do you get help? NO, no you don't get Lassie; you get a talking dog that talks about how f*%@#^ up his master is and says "woof" in subtitle, as if he's trying to agitate you. Fun, yes?
Also @Zenat: Ever thought about "dropping the loot in places no one would expect? Like say a dead body?" ;) ;)
@Sagat the Tiger: Oh, I do, certainly, when in a dungeon and whatnot. But between the dungeon exit and my horse? Slow motion walk of the determined looter... which is far too frequently interrupted by a random dragon. Very rude.
@Amare: When I play TES games, I tend to do both simultaneously.
@TheGYouLoveToHate: The wooden plates aren't even worth anything! I may accidentally pick them up, but I always throw them away XD
@Deonis: Well, to be fair, I also make calculations on the loot I have, to make sure I get good stuff. I'm just saying that I don't have the same...ahem... attachment to my loot as Zenat XD.
@byarru: Don't encourage her!
@amiko_16: I always have potions with me that can boost my strength XD. That works pretty well, because then you can fast travel.
@Griffen: Hahaha XD That's awesome. Bad shit can happen the other way around too XD. At one point when I arrived in Whiterun while overencumbered, carrying too many dragon skeletons, there was a vampire raid. A lot of people died because I couldn't move XD.
@Sagat the Tiger: Oh? What well is that? I don't think I have found it XD
@reverdaleswhiteflash: then you are better at multitasking than Zenat and I XD
