    From epic fights with dragons to lowly deaths in the teeth of slaughterfish - Skyrim has it all. Which fight was the most memorable to you? Which one do you still remember after all these years?

    Mine should be (thanks Only Sleuth for reminding me) the fight with Jyrik Gauldurson on my pure mage DiD character (Master difficulty). I rushed straight to the college from Helgen and only knew the starting spells + Lesser Ward and Healing Hands from the College starting quests. Fighting Jyrik was brutal and was an absolute epitome of mage combat, sadly lacking in so many places in Skyrim. Dodging the sword, blocking Frostbite with the ward, biding time until opening in his elemental protection and blasting him with Flames then... It was an amazing experience and I can tell, my character had certainly grown as a mage after that!
