In Which Delga Battles a Dragon and Bandits, and Seeks Azura’s Star

This is a double session post, covering play done on Friday the 19th and Saturday the 20th! Doubling up because Friday’s was a short session, and I was too busy on Saturday trying to plow through my gigantic email backlog to do a Skyrim post. So y’all are getting both sessions in this combined post!

In Which the Dragonborn Goes to Mzulft and Volunruud

This was a short session, compared to some of my other monster sessions lately! Main points were clearing a bounty, finding cogs for Arniel at the college, and finding another Word Wall. Highlights:

  • Cleared the bounty on a dragon kill at Mount Anthor and blipped back to Winterhold to collect
  • Went back to Mzulft one more time to find the rest of the cogs I needed for Arniel’s side quest at the college
  • Fast traveled to Heljarchen again, where I got jumped by bandits, which Gregor helped me kill
  • Then hoofed it to Volunruud to follow up on another “Letter from a Friend” to find a Word Wall
  • Final fast travel to Western Watchtower resulted in another dragon and a cranky fire wizard
  • In between all of the above, did another round of smithing and alchemy and selling in Whiterun, leveled up to 44, and unlocked the “Merchant” perk that lets me sell anything to any vendor
  • Also remembered that Whiterun has two forges, I don’t have to sell all the armor and weapons to Warmaiden’s, and for that matter the Drunken Hunstman also buys weaponry
  • The guards in Whiterun are now throwing me college-related dialogue, lol
