comment Where can I find the key to the top roof of the College of Winterhold?
Could you describe exactly where you're talking about? Both the Hall of Attainment and Hall of Countenance have exits to the roof at the top of the stairwells -- but maybe that's not what you mean?

comment Which hints would you give for an effective Assassin/Thief build?
@Thaumajig Yes, it does. When I sneak attack it says 30x damage, and that isn't including the 2x Armsman multiplier. I play a bow / dual daggers assassin, and I can easily clear a dungeon without actually sneaking at all on Adept at level 50. I have to play on a harder difficulty to even make it worth using sneak.

this answer is wrong as I noted in the comments. Edited so I can remove my upvote.

comment Which hints would you give for an effective Assassin/Thief build?
@Emanuele The advice in re: dual wielding is a bit off. Because of the dagger attack perks in the Sneak tree, dual-wielding daggers is a core part of an assassin build.

comment Should I play oblivion before I start playing Skyrim
Skyrim doesn't contain the entire map area of either of those games. It does contain a very low-quality mesh of parts of them. The map area is a large square, so it also contains parts of Hammerfell and High Rock.

See my answer to Is it possible to become Thane of Falkreath without completing the main quests or the civil war quests? for how to trigger the Falkreath Thane quest chain if you don't have the needed dialogue option from the Jarl.

@ewanm89 No, it's not there at all on consoles. Also, using the console doesn't prevent achievements on PC.

comment Grand Staff of Charming mission?
This quest often bugs if you already have the staff when you start it. The solution is to leave the staff on a weapon rack until after you get the quest, then go pick it up (if you actually need it -- the quest can be done without it).

comment Is it possible to become Thane of Falkreath without completing the main quests or the civil war quests?
@desaivv That won't affect anything. He's one of the kills where you can just talk to him and he'll attack you so when you kill him it's not even a crime.

comment Is there any optimal number of trees to spread skill points?
You can't reach level 81 without maxing out every single skill in the game. Think of 60 as more like the max if you actually specialize.

comment How can I find or recall my horse?
Rather than fast travel to a far location, go to whichever icon is the least greyed out on your compass -- that's the closest location. Then you can fast travel to there from there and not lose any distance.
