The Best Defense by 1Rich1 The Best Defense by 1Rich1
Another Skyrim piece.

I find I spend a lot of time behind trees when I'm around dragons.

Thanks for viewing!

There should seriously be a skill tree for the use of trees and buildings as shields.

*Sigh* "Dungeon crawl, kill a dragon. Delivery quest, another dragon. Killing Thalmor, dragon. Just another normal day for the Dovahkiin..."

Shields: 50% protection.
Trees: 100% protection.

don't forget buildings. Same protection as trees.: 100%

fought an elder dragon in Winterhold, buildings worked well (good thing trees and buildings are element proof)

This looks like something that actually could have happen. Taking shelter from the dragon's flame. Really nice. I am not familiar with Skyrim... but am an avid WoW player.

Yea in the game wit difficulty up you need to find shelter when they attack but the trees usually are not wide enough and you get burned haha :)

AGREED!! trees rocks anything that provides protection from their breath and various other attacks are the best defense.

Also a huge magical shield works but meh you can't swing two swords and have a shield so trees it is haha :)

Well ... actually it was more like hiding under a rock overhang like a mewling kitten after being toasted, roasted, and crunched multiple times because my level was too low to possibly win the battle. But when I hid, it actually flew overhead a few times and then got bored and left. I was very surprised that logic worked. Now, however, if I see a dragon, I have no problem confronting it. Levels definitely help! ;)

Haha its fine until, have you noticed.. the dragons jump in level! and then an easy battle become a health potion drinking contest haha
