On my way to High Hrothgar (I'm a level 11 thief mostly aimed at sneaking and archery) I meet a sabertooth cat on the 7000 steps. There is no way to go around it and it kills me in 2 blows.
I tried doing large damage to it with shouts, magic and everything else, but I can't kill him. I even lost my housecarl, it can't fight it.
I was wondering if I could find a potion of invisibility somewhere. Else I'll have to wait for the Ethereal shout and run like hell in hope he'll let me pass.
How would you bypass this "problem"?
