Does fall damage count? That is the only thing i repeatdly die to in skyrim.
no fall damage doesnt counted sadly despite the amount of death it cause... Well my Favorite will be Lord Harkon reason it feel like Im battling a Vampiric Ganondorf
hell yeah Jan 23, 2013 @ 7:03am 
I can't really say there was any boss fight that I particularily enjoyed at all

Skyrim has bosses? The fights are all so similar and easy I never really notice if I'm fighting somebody special or just another random.
They do infact if you do the quest Forbidden legend you battle 3 bosses in that quest...

My most hated one is probably the one at the end of Dawnguard, if you like me didn't specialize in archery at all.

I am ashamed to say that I can't remember the boss' name or the name of the dungeon he was in but I remember he was a necromancer (or "arch"necromancer) and the battle involved many draugrs (of the toughest kind). The necromancer kept reanimating the draugrs I killed and he also teleported a lot, making very hard to nail down. Lydia died many cruel deaths with all my retries. Finally, I had to give up. I returned after gaining a few levels and being better prepared. This was probably my "best" boss fight because it was the toughest one.

Again, I apologized for being so vague. I will try to find out which boss/dungeon I am referring to.

Alduin was easier than Deathwing in Cataclysm, and that's saying something.

Harkon was harder than Alduin by far. Between his ability to resurrect the gargoyles he threw at me an infinite number of times, and Serana just standing in the way of his drain bolts like an idiot, the fight took way longer than I expected. To top it all off, what Amycus said. If you're not already using the bow, he heals quickly in the time it takes you to pull it out and break his shield.

Lord Harkon was too easy for me, I used conjuration to summon a frost atronach which took care of all the gargoyles, skeletons, ect. So with the frost atronach distracting all those losers, Serana and Me vs Lord Harkon with no helpers was a pretty easy win.

I suppose you did the Heroic version, not just LFR version :P? "well.. uh.. I.. I don't have time to grind for HC gear blahblah" :D

I have to agree with Sik_life, you can barely tell difference between boss and normal enemy.
Alright to make it easy on you guys to tell what a boss what isnt here a list boss sould atleast have 2 of the following:
1) Unique Name
2) Special Entry (Dragons only)
3) Able to wrap to a diff location
4) Must be killed twice (ex: Break of Dawn quest: that guy is a Boss in my standard)
5) Can also have a 2 Stage battle (ex like the snow elf vampiric brother)
Some Bosses can have only the unique name but they are still bosses like : Ulfric, General Tuilius.
Dragon Priest with name are counted as Bosses since there 9 or 8 of them in total...

Alduin was my most dissapointing, mainly because their was so much build up on him.

Ulfric/Tullius is the second. Civil War is supposed to be a HUGE part of Skyrim and you just cut these guys down like nothing, and barely talk to them.

Favorite is either Draugr Deathlords or the higher level Dragons

Cinematic wise maybe The Vampire Snow Elf. I was literally amazed by the fight because he THREW A FREAKING ROOF ON ME! lol then Serana is like "Hey get up hes weakened" and I am just like "ROOF THROWN ON ME!" Then after that hes killed pretty easily though :(

That why I am a vampire myself it give a chance to that snow elf in daylight...
And my Racial power is useless in daylight unless I am a Stage 3 Vampire

The toughest boss I've fought in Skyrim (the one who actually could kill my character - multiple times in a row, even on Novice level) is Malkoran from the "Break of Dawn" Daedric quest (Meridia's quest). That guy was tough, and once you beat him, he came back - seemingly 10 times tougher then before. Compared to Malkoran, Aldiun was a real weenie (I've never gotten remotely close to being killed by Aldiun -although one time Tsun killed my character - I guess Tsun is tougher than Aldiun?), and even Harkon in comparison is sort of a wimp (although Harkon usually does give me a real workout and has come close to beating me a couple times, he's never actually killed one of my characters). Markoran, on the other hand, is always very dangerous - you can always count on him to kill you if you fight even a little sloppy - you've got to be in top form (or very tough) to beat him!
