It’s been quite a while since the release of Skyrim and all its following add-ons such as Dawnguard and Dragonborn. With thousands of gaming hours no doubt being clocked up by avid fans of the Elder Scrolls series.
Now with every role-playing game there comes a time when you may find getting past a quest particularly difficult, or have failed to find that all important artifact or weapon you have been searching for and need its exact location for example. This is when you will turn to various sources to find information on playing Skyrim, and start searching for an adequate Skyrim strategy guide.
There are literally hundreds of pages of strategy guides about Skyrim on the internet, and there is a quite extensive Skyrim Wiki for you to peruse over at leisure. Not to mention all the Skyrim forums dotted about the internet, that you can use to post your various questions to other players.
Now this method of finding information on Skyrim does have the advantage of being free and easy to access, but also has the disadvantage of being sometimes over whelming and badly laid out when searching for a particular hint that relates to your own quest. Also when posting questions in forums you can quite often be given false or wrong information that does not answer your question properly.
Another great source for all who play Skyrim is the official Elder Scrolls V Strategy Guide, which is a fully illustrated book featuring tonnes of information and fully labelled maps for every inch of the Skyrim landscape and can be bought for around $20 through several retailers on Amazon.com. Now although the information is fully detailed and provides useful information for any Skyrim player, the guide itself is more of a reference manual than an actual Skyrim strategy guide. So if you are looking for a step by step walkthrough on how to complete a particular quest in Skyrim, then I’m afraid you will not get this sort of useful information if you purchase this guide book.
One other useful source is the Abeona Skyrim Walkthrough Guide which is a digital media ebook that can be purchased, downloaded and viewed with the free Adobe Reader on your desktop computer or laptop. Though expensive at a whopping $34.99, is an actual dedicated Skyrim walkthrough guide, that is fully updated for free to anyone who purchases it.
This Skyrim strategy guide not only features full color maps on the various locations across Skyrim, but actually provides detailed step by step walkthroughs on how to successfully complete every quest the Skyrim game has to offer. You also get comprehensive guides on how to create and develop a successful character, how to be more successful in combat against much stronger opponents, plus detailed guides on crafting weapons and armor and also how to use the various skills and magic more effectively.
If you have explored every orifice of the Skyrim landscape yourself, which lets face it is exactly what playing role-playing games is about! And have reached a plateau with regards your Skyrim gameplay. Then using the various sources and Skyrim strategy guides mentioned above, could be the way for you start playing and enjoying the popular Elder Scrolls title all over again.
