I have finished the game once and it was quiet boring afterwards so I just started a new game.

However, I have been noticing that there are a lot less dragon encounters on the new game.

Is there any reason to this?

  • How far into the new game are you? Do you have any of the DLCs, and have you played through any of them? I'm playing a second playthrough myself, but I could swear I'm dealing with more dragons than I used to. I'm a fair bit into the game though, have all DLCs, and have completed the primary Dragonborn questline. – Iszi Feb 22 '13 at 14:11
  • @Iszi I don't have any DLC and I am at the part where you have to trap Ohdaaving. – MerajA Feb 22 '13 at 15:01
  • How often do you fast-travel? I swear, it seems that's the time when they're most likely to show up. – Iszi Feb 22 '13 at 15:06
  • @Iszi Well...... everytime I am doing a quest and a location on the map is closer to the objective. I don't fast-travel much in freeroam. – MerajA Feb 22 '13 at 15:12
  • dragon encounters are random. – Paralytic Feb 22 '13 at 23:21

Dragon encounters are entirely random in every game; while one playthrough will have you fight dragons until you're knee-deep in their dead, while another one will have you encounter only a few. I myself once had a game where I didn't encounter a single dragon (other than the story ones) until I was around level 20, to the point that I almost forgot there were dragons in the game.

There are some areas, however, in which dragons are scripted to appear.
