comment What items can be farmed fully automatically?
@Lysarion It was true when I said it, over a year ago. Passive mobs also don't despawn now, so that's not the only thing that's changed.

comment What can I do if I already killed a dragon for a Blades quest?
@ChristopherGalpin I don't know the details but it is definitely normal not to receive multiple souls for static dragon respawns.

comment Can I drive the Animal Population of Skyrim into Extinction?
I don't think this is correct. I'm pretty sure I've killed mammoths multiple times. Pretty much anything without a unique name respawns.

comment Is it safe to carry lots of gold around?
@JonathanDrain The gold in the container was marked as owned before you took it?

comment Is it safe to carry lots of gold around?
This is incorrect. Gold can be marked as stolen. Confirmed by myself and others in the comments on my answer. Pickpocketed gold doesn't appear to get marked as stolen, which is probably what led to this misapprehension.

comment Is it safe to carry lots of gold around?
@Jasarien I believe the gold I was carrying would have been stolen from containers in houses rather than Pickpocketed or picked up from the environment. I'd assume owned loose gold and coin purses would follow the same rules as other items, so probably they will be marked as stolen.

@JonathanDrain Thanks for testing; it's good to have confirmation. I don't see why it would be a bug, though? It seems more like a bug to me that pickpocketed gold isn't marked as stolen.

comment Is it safe to carry lots of gold around?
I see that, but it doesn't square with my experience in game. My gold is marked as stolen, and if I put it in a container, it turns red. I discovered this when I had a 5g bounty in Solitude, so put my stolen gear in a barrel and talked to a guard, only to have all of my gold disappear. I reloaded and add my gold to the barrel. Can anyone else test if they get the same result?

@RavenDreamer Any way this could get merged over into one of those other questions?

Weighs nothing = no noise.

comment Why can't I kill stealthily?
Right, except that muffle takes care of that, and both heavy and light armor have perks that make them silent.

comment Why was my treasure map removed?
Beats me. I was just trying to narrow down what might be going on. I know the treasure chest only spawns once you have the map, so maybe something can cause them to despawn, which maybe causes the map to disappear?

What does "Light Armor(5/5)" have to do with it?

Did you already get the treasure described by that map?

comment How do you know where you're already a thane?
@Iszi Morthal, Falkreath, Winterhold, and Dawnstar don't have houses so they don't have Housecarls.

You can certainly be seen with 100 Sneak.

comment Are the Thieves Guild's radiant quests broken?
I had exactly the same experience. Just keep trying. I actually saved without the quests then loaded and repeated, not sure if that makes any difference versus cancelling.

comment What determines when you do a finishing move?
As far as I can tell, the triple attack dual-wield power attack doesn't ever trigger a finishing move, so many stealth characters will rarely see one.
