Skyrim Special Edition has factions

Do you need a place to stay? Then join a faction. There are 4 factions and each one will have its own separate headquarters. You will also have faction specific objectives to complete and quests to beat. You can make friends with them all or make enemies out of them.

Always have a companion by your side

Use a companion whenever you can. You can have only one at a time but even that goes a long way to helping you out a lot. Sure there is some crappy AI that doesn’t fare well in stealth missions but overall it’s still fun to have a computer-controlled squad mate to help you whenever you’re in trouble.

Do not play the game in third person

There is absolutely no use of that. It feels like a cheap old hack-n-slash from the early 2000s except its worse than them. First person perspective is your best bet.

Quickest way to get money

Get married and your spouse will give you 100 gold a day. What’s better than having a spouse who supports you in your random quest for carnage.

Don’t try to attack Trolls unless you are absolutely sure you can take them

A lot of players make the mistake of attacking Trolls early on in the game. Don’t do it, it’s not worth your time. Save up and level up and then take them on. It gets extra hard to beat them when there are more of them at once with Mammoths to aid them in the fight.
