It might be that I'm questing too much, but I don't see much dragons so I'm unable to learn the new words I learn. Are there areas I could go and take a visit to perform some efficient dragon hunting?
From what I gather they appear generally every 36 or so hours. I tend to find them in towns when I'm waiting for shops to open.
I read somewhere that you can sleep for 36 hours in a town and when you go out a dragon spawns every time.
Also you need to do a quest in Whiterun as part of the story to allow attacks by "wild" dragons.
In my experience Morthal, Winterhold, Falkreath, and Dawnstar spawn dragons nearly every time. Markarth had only one spawn and I have a house where I dump my gear after every quest or two. Karthwasten about every other time. Shor's Stone I don't visit very often so idk. Riften I've never had a spawn. Ivarstead about one in three. Been attacked between Ivarstead and Riften quite often.Windhelm I've never had attacked but I've been attacked at the farms near the stables. Rorikstead I've never had attacked but been attacked before and after. Solitude have had attacked twice, but get plenty of attacks a little ways away from the city. Same for Dragon Bridge. Whiterun never had a "wild" dragon attack, but a lot in the countryside and Riverwood. Think attacks have to do with how close dragon burials are, and where the dragons fly to. *Note this is just my current character at level 37.
