Sup reader who has hopes of obtaining knowledge of the Argonian follower known as Derkeethus. You have most certainly ventured into the right area if that is what you are seeking. So sit back, relax, and do NOT forget to prepare your anus, butt-pirates could be anywhere at any time and resisting them is futile. WHERE TO FIND HIM Derkeethus can be found in Darkwater Pass NOT Darkwater Crossing. It's very easy to get those two mixed up, in fact it's easier to get mixed up than your left nipple from your right nipple. Remember the difference, Darkwater Crossing is his home, and Darkwater Pass is the cave he is trapped in. He is trapped in Darkwater Pass as a rape slave for the Falmer, because they plan on making a Smeagol/Lizard hybrid. Derkeethus is not willingly participating in this so you have to kill all the Falmer and rescue him from the cage he's in. Escort him out of the cave and there you go, you now have the option to have him as a follower. If you don't say anything to him, he will go to Darkwater Crossing. He also does that if you tell him its time to part ways. Be sure to tell him exactly in the way of the video. COMBAT: Derkeethus is a stealthy Archer. He will use the bow to shoot down your enemies with projectile dildos until they die from penis overload syndrome. But if they dont keep their distance, he'll use whatever melee weapon he has on them. However, if you give him a better bow than his hunting bow and you give him a melee weapon, he will not use the bow you gave him. But on the bright side, he'll use whatever arrows you give him and will never run out, for example, I gave him Daedric Arrows, he never ran out, and i collected more daedric arrows for him, and now he has like 200 daedric arrows, fluffin unbelievable I know. Another cool thing is that, he never dies, he is immortal. If he takes too much damage, he'll just limp around on the ground on his knees pretending to give a blowjob to the air. He never dies because the 9 Divines love Argonians. But one more thing to say about his bow, he NEVER uses a different one because his grandma gave it to him as a youngin. Even if you pull it out of his rectum and get rid of it, he'll still use it. Even if you enchant it and give it back to him, it wont work and the bow wont be enchanted. Unless you dont give him a melee weapon and have him use his fists, then he'll use any bow you give him, but he wont use any arrows you give him then. Since he's a stubborn asshole, just let him keep his main bow and give him anything else you want to give him. One other cool thing he does, is if you give him a one handed weapon and a pickaxe or let him keep the pickaxe he already has, he dual wields the weapon with the pickaxe. RECOMMENDED GEAR This is a set of gear I gave to Derkeethus, I figured out it works best with him and I reccomend you give it to him as well. APPAREL (quest rewards): Shrouded Cowl - Obtainable from when you first join the Dark Brotherhood. Ebony Mail - Obtainable from the quest "Boethiah's Calling". He also looks very cool when sneaking when he wears this armor. Nightingale Gloves - Obtainable from progressing in the Thieves Guild questline. Nightingale Boots - You already know you get this along with the gloves so I'm not gonna tell you how to get it even though I technically already did. APPAREL (enchanted jewelry): Necklace - Fortify Health (it's not on the wiki) and Fortify Sneak (if you have the additional effect perk in enchanting) Ring - Fortify Archery and Fortify Health (like I just said, not on the wiki. and if you have the additional effect perk in enchanting) WEAPONS: One Handed Weapons - Preferably the Nightingale Sword, or an Ebony or Daedric Sword enchanted with Absorb Health and Paralyze (as i repeated 3 times, if you have additional effect perk in enchanting) Daedric Arrows - I found a ton of em off of Dwemer Centurion Masters, i gave them to Derkeethus and he never ran out. Now if you have a dickload of perks spent in enchanting like I do. All of this put together makes sugar spice and everything nice Derkeethus have a total of 124 additional health points, %60 percent more archery damage, 25% more One-Handed weapon damage, 25% more easier for him to lockpick (so he can open doors for you), and 54% easier for him to sneak undetected (along with the muffle effect from his armor and boots). fluffin' incredible, aint it? WHY HE'S MY FAVORITE FOLLOWER Now if you don't want to read this you don't have to, it's just a couple of reasons as to why I think Derkeethus is a great follower and why he's my Skyrim BFF. 1. He's Argonian 2. He's a great archer (he can take down a plopsload of health from Falmer Shadowmasters from one shot if you give him the gear and enchantments I gave him) 3. He is loyal, "To oblivion and back, as they say", "Ours is to follow friend". 4. Him and Cicero are probably the best stealth followers 5. He looks badass when sneaking with the Ebony Mail, seriously, try it, he looks like a black shadowy demon with those big eyes of his. 6. He kinda reminds me of Veezara from the Dark Brotherhood. But that's it, I hope I helped you out with Derkeethus and I hope you choose him over all the other dickfluffs in Skryim as a follower. See ya.
