So, I'm somewhere in the North Western corner of the map in a dungeon. It didn't appear to be tagged in any quests, & it's the deepest one I've found so far. I recently dinged 20 & find the first couple levels full of bandits. Outside of one mage, non prove a challenge & I either snipe them with a flaming bow or slaughter them outright with my exquisite dwarven greatsword of fire.
Next couple levels, spiders as I get deeper. No problem there, me & Lydia (when she wasn't stuck behind a trap) have no issues.
Then some draugers. The melee are getting tougher & the mages are now summoning sh*t against me. Heavy uses of potions twice, but no issues. Also, no saves.
Then I sneak up a staircase & a figure rises from a throne. I'm unseen, so I light the @#%^er up with my bow. I sneak back, remaining completely undetected while Lydia goes and dies on his sword. I fire another arrow, get another critical & he's at all of 90%.
Switch to GSWD, Yell at him, charging attack. 85%.
Then the @#%^er yells at me, I lose my sword and he proceeds to bum rush me while I scramble to find it. I'm now at 20% health after two hits. Switch to bow & run away. Kite him in a circle and snipe him for 25mins (thank christ he didn't have magic or ranged)while Lydia intermittently gets up and dies some more. Eventually kill him. Loot treasure till I can't walk & look for Lydia.
Drop some stuff, go look for her. She's dead with an arrow in her chest. She's fully loaded on loot too.
Do I do it ALL over or leave her there dead?
|Leave her. :||11 (42.3%)|
|Life without her is pointless, do it all over you lazy *******. :||1 (3.8%)|
|Continue on, leaving her behind you (knowing that you're going to HAVE to come back for her loot):||10 (38.5%)|
|********** furiously to her stripped corpse, THEN do it all over. :||4 (15.4%)|
