An Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim player has managed to survive a jump from an absurd height. The vast open world of Skyrim is home to many hazards that aim to slow gamers from completing Bethesda’s iconic RPG, with fall damage being one of the more irritating aspects of the game.
Despite being over 12 years old, Bethesda’s open-world RPG remains ever-popular among the gaming community. Players regularly share strange glitches found within Skyrim, including a recent example where a battle played out in slow motion. One gamer, however, has managed to find a way to power their character in such a manner that fall damage doesn’t halt their progression.
Skyrim Player Creates Particularly Powerful Poison
A Skyrim player creates a particularly powerful poison at an Alchemy table by mixing three ingredients with an advanced skill level.
A Redditor by the handle pawelos4 has posted a video to the r/Skyrim subreddit that showed their character jumping from a keep on the top of a mountain, landing at the bottom, and still being able to walk away albeit with a significant reduction in HP. As explained by pawelos4, they were able to survive such as drastic drop because their character had reached level 1337 and had over 7000 hit points to play with.
How To Survive A Huge Fall In Skyrim
The post has received over 13k upvotes at the time of writing, with most replies asking how pawelos4 obtained such a high level to be able to survive such a fall. Under normal conditions, players would face a game over screen as the fall damage within Skyrim can be unforgiving at times. With that in mind, the original poster was able to pull off the extraordinary feat without the use of any of the numerous mods that can be installed in Skyrim. Instead, they explained that they plowed over 40 hours into powering up the Illusion perk so that the character would level up to 1337.
Fans have long celebrated accomplishments related to the Elder Scrolls franchise. One player recently showcased a 3D-printed Golden Claw from Skyrim that had the bear, butterfly, and owl emblems etched into its palm. The print may not be useful in the real world, but it certainly shows the dedication players have to the game.
It is fair to say that Skyrim has become a cultural phenomenon since it was first released in 2011. Fans like pawelos4 are still finding new ways to play the RPG over a decade after Bethesda first launched the game on PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. It’s just as well that fans are still engaged with Skyrim as Bethesda’s long-awaited follow-up is currently in production. Fans may be excited to learn that Elder Scrolls 6 could be a multiplatform title as opposed to an Xbox console exclusive as reports are circulating that Microsoft is considering releasing Bethesda games on rival platforms.
Skyrim is a beloved game for a reason. There is so much to do in the game, and with the new anniversary updates, even veteran players will have a fresh experience if they haven’t played it in a few years.
Perfect for players who want to play Skyrim on the go, but don’t have a Steamdeck or another portable gaming system, this deal is likely not going to be repeated until end of year sales start going. Take the opportunity now to become the dragonborn on the Switch!
