comment Why do some shops and houses stay locked during the day?
Can you give some specific examples of shops that are still locked even after you wait several RL minutes for the owners to walk over and open them?

comment Draugr Wight Lord disarmed me, can't find my weapon
I've had an item fall through the floor, then left the area and re-entered, and it had popped back up through the floor, so that may be worth trying.

@Iszi Sprinting, it's what, 30 seconds?

comment When should I replace my companion?
@hammar See the answer yx. linked to -- it has more info on that. But basically, the first time an area is loaded the follower's stats are set.

comment Dawnstar Inn quest stays active
I actually have 5 of that quest stuck in my journal. Hopefully after the new year, when they've switched from fixing code bugs to fixing script bugs, it will get resolved.

comment Is there a definitive 'Best Weapon' for each weapon type in Skyrim?
@yx. I said highest damage not DPS. Elemental Fury is also limited case -- as a stealth character I prefer to keep Aura Whisper up basically all the time.

comment Is there a definitive 'Best Weapon' for each weapon type in Skyrim?
As far as daggers go, the Blade of Woe is the highest damage one in the game. With just the Steel Smithing and Arcane Blacksmith perks, it will be better than a Daedric Dagger with the 5 perks that takes to improve.

comment Glitch in The Only Cure quest?
I would suggest reloading, visiting the shrine, then leaving for over 30 days and coming back so it resets. Maybe that will fix the bug.

@RavenDreamer Perhaps someone could add the console commands to make her marriageable and so distinguish their answer from the others?

comment Alteration vs Light armor for roleplaying purposes
Please read the FAQ. This is an opinion question, and fits a discussion board / forum better than a Q&A site.

This is close, but you've missed the stray dog.

comment What is the fastest way to level up my alchemy skill?
The most efficient way is take two ingredients you know work together, and then add a third one that you want to discover effects on. That way, you still create a potion and get the larger amount of EXP and have a good chance of discovering an effect (since there are up to 7 effects on the two that do match).

comment How can I make skyrim audio volume is a bit louder?
Loudness equalization is always one of my first tweaks to a Windows system. It's not just good for Skyrim, but if you watch video etc. on cheap speakers / headphones or when there is background noise.

comment Can I still level my Sneak skill while wearing Boots of Muffling?
I'm pretty sure that what you said in your comment is what he meant. You should move it into your answer as it's correct. You should change it to "any time you're sneaking and hidden"... because I don't think you get exp when you're detected.

comment Is it possible to prevent the mouse cursor from highlighting menu items?
Yeah, that's what I'm talking about. There was a change made in the 1.2 patch that made this much worse. For example, in the misc quests lists, if you scroll with W and S, you can scroll the selection out of the visible area -- before, it would scroll the area too. You can also make it so the selected item and highlighted item is two different items in the inventory list -- I don't believe that could happen before.
