Skyrim 100%
How long would it take (on average) to complete Skyrim 100%? All side missiona and main missions. This is excluding the DLC, any input would be appreciated.

I've seen people with less then 300 hours in it but with 100%. Not to hard i geuss.

Thanks, I want to start a new character and I am going for 100% completion, and was wodering how long it would take. I have heard some people say they have been playing the game for 4000hrs and they still haven't got 100%

With all side quests? No way 300 hours is enough - not for an "average" playthrough. I'd say around 500 hours min.

For a speedrun it is :P

Unless of course you cheat, fast travel everywhere, or use console commands.

Then comes the DLC's.

I don't know personally why anyone would want to speed through the game...isn't the point to take your time? Hell, I don't even run. I walk.

75% of the time, I sneak to build up that perk tree.

I always get distracted by thinking i'm supposed to be somewhere in the game but can never find out where it is or what i was supposed to be doing.
Then i go kill some mudcrabs.

I don't plan on speedrunning. I walk to most places/objectives.

Have you ever seen speed runs on twitch? These people HAVE played through the game extensively at a normal pace, many times most likely, but speed running is a challenge to beat the game (in this case defeating Alduin) in as little time as possible.

Heh, but I don't think that is what the OP had in mind, Kappa.

Ghost, do you plan on completing all of the faction quests as well (Thieves, Dark Brotherhood, Companions)? I think I'd definitely allow 1000 hours or so.

Took me around 200hrs to complete everything but Soltsheim, including additional quests from mods > Interesting NPCs <.
hedgie_yozh Mar 18, 2014 @ 2:00pm 
Given that the Interesting NPCs quests take longer than the main quest, I highly doubt it, Pip.

Same here, unless he did what I posted here:

Hahaha. Bob, I think he did the 'completely uninteresting NPCs" track.
