I am trying to use commands as shown on this page, specifically getavinfo while a dragon is right in front of me.
I get nothing back. Nothing shows up in the console or anything about the health of the dragon I am facing.

I want to see my opponents' level and health, how do I do so?

This page says I can get the value using getav. I click on the dragon - wait a minute, how do I click on the dragon? I have a crosshair: should I look at the dragon? Where will the number show?

  • Does this answer your question? How can I determine an NPC's level? Oct 11, 2020 at 15:36
  • Could be. But I found a better solution anyway. No it doesn't. This question ask for health and that question ask for level. My answer answers both.

Once the console is brought up (using ~ (`) on PC, Alt+5 or Option+N on MacOS), you can use your mouse to select currently visible entities.
As targeted commands control the active entity, always be sure you are targeting the right object or NPC, as entities overlap at times and it's hard to tell which one is active.

To get an NPC's Health, select it and use the command getAV Health.


Update: The easiest way to see enemies health is to install these mods

Another way is to use console but just check that mod above.

So, a dragon have 3k health. To get 100 one hand skill I will need like 500k xp. So around 100 dragons with normal bound sword.

Another way

I figured that out. Basically, press ~

After that I can click on the dragon and it'll show some numbers

There you go.
