The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Basics Guide: General Tips – Followers And Equipment Shortcuts

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is definitely one of the most successful releases of this generation: the game managed to make the whole series more known and successful to the general public. With the game being so popular and with all the recent additions brought in by new title updates, it’s time that we cover the many aspects of the game. The amount of stuff to do in the game is truly overwhelming: adventuring and battling are only the tip of the iceberg. To truly succeed in Skyrim you will require a deep knowledge of all its gameplay elements and here we are, ready to guide you while we delve deeper in everything the game has to offer.

However before getting to the more advanced stuff we will be covering some of the basics of the game for all those who are just starting the game and are feeling a bit confused at all the gameplay options offered by Skyrim. After we’re done with the basics we will be covering everything else so that even advanced players will find something useful in these Skyrim guides.

  • Followers

Getting as many followers as you can is really important, especially when having to fight some huge monsters like dragons and mammoths. While a single follower will not be of much help against these beasts, six or more followers will be way more useful and there’s a trick to do this: simply accept one of those quests which make a follower join you without replacing your current one. This new follower will come with you until you complete the attached quest: delaying the quest’s completion will ensure that this follower will be with you until you want to get rid of him.

  • Equipment Shortcuts

Setting up the two available Equipment Sets available will prove to be beneficial in the long run: you can press left and right on the pad to select Set number 1 and Set number 2. To make the best out of this option I suggest creating a short range set and a long range one so that you can change style on the run and avoid getting found unprepared. You can also use this method to have more types of items on hand.
