    Gandalf would win because of his huge stick. Skyrim loading screen: If you see a mage, get close to them and hit them hard!

    Oy. You did well. Congratulations. But I disagree with your tactic. In order to kill them without taking any damage, you have to hug their face, and strafe back and forth, staying right up against them, and move down to their wings when they try to bite you. When they move to breathe fire or something, you have to have PERFECT timing to stagger them with a bash before they get it off. Become Ethereal makes it a lot easier, but isn't allowed in the challenge.

    That is the tactic I used for my kill... Took me FOREVER though.

    I journeyed to a Giant Camp, where I lived among them for one long week and contemplated the meaning of conjuration until I mastered it:

    I was then beset by a dragon, whom could barely lay a tooth on me thanks to my mad skillz. Observe my tactic in the picture, if you can:

    Here's a better dragon kill though I still want to redo it again as the camera clipping on the killshot sucks.

    But here it is.

    A legendary dragon kill on legendary difficulty with a non-enchanted legendary (as if) wooden sword. Attire is a pair of non-enchanted ragged trousers and non-enchanted cloth handwraps both of which are clothing and have no armor value. I also kept myself to ground attacks as well using the sword and only the sword.

    This kill is much easier using magic to buff you up a bit which I didn't know was allowed my first 35+ attempts at this. I ended up using dragonhide and that did enough.

    Playing the game for 24 hours and not having it F- up once could be a real challenge of badassery

    I like how the game actually has a "legendary" label for an upgraded wooden stick

    Congratulations btw. You did well. Did you have trouble with it after using alteration?

    Yeah the successful tries I've had have been close up to the front and sides. The dragonhide spell seems to give me enough that it's no longer an instant kill on me when I get close. My next trial will be multiple dragons

    Made it pretty easy actually. Raido's alteration is at 100 and he has nearly 600 points in it.

    It still could do damage, but if you are somewhat careful it wasn't too much of a problem

    I had a few ideas for successful inductees into the Hall of Badas*ery:

    Working on some signature ideas, maybe have some common elements but incorporate screen caps if people got some good ones during their trial to personalize it, or maybe make a badge or logo or something.

    Gonna see if I can photoshop a word wall type thing where we can put character names onto it.

    We should come up with a craftable item that people could make, likely vanilla so console folk can make it too and then enchant it with something so they can name it whatever is chosen to be the name. Kinda like a hall of fame ring or amulet type thing.

    Well, it's over. He got one monster power attack on me, and he would have won if the fight dragged on much longer. My stamina was getting low, and he'd managed to save most of his. His second charging attack would've killed me, but he couldn't turn fast enough.

    I'm now Ansei Master Badass


    ... and I am so totally gonna put my legendary wooden sword on display in Jorrvaskr. Some time years from now future companions will be collecting fragments of my wooden stick.

    G-, thanks for my congratulatory rep my friend. Glad to be in. That dragon that got beat with a stick might not be glad, but I am.

    Now I'm eagerly awaiting the next member to make it.

    did not want to allow alteration, was told it'd be impossible without it
