    Ok, so my disc was scratched which caused several glitches such as, five-minute loading screens, people wouldn't talk to me at all, and I tried to make a new game but Ralof wouldn't talk to me and when it was time to get out of the cart it wouldn't, I just sat there.

    Funnily enough I just logged in here to report one of my hilarious ones. Don't ask me how it happened, as I have NEVER killed a Dragon in Whiterun, they never seem to attack Whiterun (mostly just Windhelm and Winterhold). Anyway, I went into Whiterun, everything was fine, I come out to find that there's a dragon's arse sticking out of the ground right in front of the gates. Most bizarre.

    I went into Breezehome to dispose of some crap, and I come back out again to find that said Frost Dragon is now stuck beneath the bridge at the gates of Whiterun shivering (It is Frostfall I suppose, maybe he's cold, I don't know). He still has all his skin and everything, although I can look in his inventory as if he's dead. Very odd indeed. It looks quite strange as the tail is sticking out of the ground and just flicking about like some kind of tenticle coming up from the ground...

    Horses falling out of the sky never fails to make me smile, although it happens quite a bit. Also, weapons and shields drifting verrrry slooowwly up into the sky.

    Once in a while I get attacked by a generic, invisible male khajiit. Always a male khajiit, always completely invisible. Don't know what causes this—could be a mod conflict somewhere, but I haven't been able to narrow it down. It doesn't happen often enough to be a major concern, although it's pretty distressing when it does happen.

    Then there was the time I walked into Jorrvaskr and talked to Skjor. The thing is, he should have been dead. At that point my wife, Borgakh, started walking backwards around the table in the main hall very slowly, which should have been an indication to get the hell out of there. But no, just to see what would happen, I accepted a quest from not-entirely-dead Skjor. That did NOT work out well. I got this quest objective arrow that kept teleporting to a different place each time I looked at the map.

    One back when Skyrim first was released, went into Whiterun to drop of a load of junk at Breezehome. When I got back outside, Fralia Gray-Mane instantly began talking to me then starting floating upwards. She eventually hit the invisible ceiling and just looked over Whiterun. I eventually decided to leave her there as she would not reset when i left the cell or skipped ahead so many days.

    Flying mammoths. :D

    A few times I've had dragons glitch out on me in various, more or less hilarious ways. Like by going underground, literally. They start flying in a small circle, lower and lower and lower... into the ground... until they vanish completely. I can still hear them, but am unable to do anything. They do eventually re-appear.
    Also, and this has only happened once, a dragon decided to go die underground. I had to use the tcl console command to be able to loot the skeleton.

    A couple times when I've exited the Winking Skeever, an NPC has literally flown into the wall opposite the inn, at lightning speed. I have absolutely no idea what causes that one. :D




    That's the (in)famous Dragon Stalking glitch. :D You can download a mod (you mentioned Frostfall, so assuming you're on PC - unless you were referring to the month) from the Nexus that supposedly fixes it.
    99% of the dragons I shoot straight out of the air start stalking me. Some more regularly than others.


    Vanilla glitch; I've gotten in on my 360 more than once. :)
    Really annoying.

    Had a weird glitch happen to me the day before last. It was funny in an odd kind of way. I was playing on my female Bosmer again with Faendal as my follower (I love him idk why) and we had just defeated Alduin and had just gotten the quest Season Unending. I'd also bought Breezehome right after - and Lydia died on me a while ago. Maybe that's why this happened, not sure. So as Faendal and I exit Breezehome for the first time I notice my arrow quiver, which my character wears constantly just in case, is floating about an inch away from her back. I try unequipping and re-equipping it, try equipping different quivers, all to no effect. Maybe I have an odd sense of humor but it looked like a jet pack was floating on her back and it was just amusing.

    It's not a glitch, just the way the quiver sits. Kinda irritates me so I always unequip it when I'm in a city.

    Hm. It never sat that way before. I mean there was literally a large gap between her back and the quiver. :eek:

    Mine do it, too. I noticed it happens more on slender frames, such as females. It also depends on what armor you're wearing.

    For example, when I wear Anciet Nord Armor on my female Nord, it is WAY WAY obvious. But when she wears like, Banded Iron Armor, it's not as much so.

    Hm. Well my character did recently change the type of armor she wears - if you can call it armor. She was wearing Necromancer Robes and is now wearing I think Expert Robes of Conjuration or something. Can't remember the name. That might be the problem then. Well thanks for letting me know.

    It really doesn't get much stranger than there being multiple Louis Letrushes standing inside Whiterun half buried in the ground.

    My glitch was that if you have a companion on horse back. If you start to follow it, he would stand on the horse but still would ride it! After a while, he would spin in the air.

    Like most I have seen many Mammoths floating in then falling out of the sky to their deaths, but a more recent one that occurred was running into a tiny/mini Falmer. I guess it's a glitch that has happened for quite a few people within the ruins of Nchuand-Zel in Markarth. I've also heard that sometimes the falmer can glitch in a different way, and be as big as a Centurion.

    Not my pic, but a good look at one of the "tiny" Falmer...

    Three horkers just fell out of the sky and died on impact.
