74 hours ive played this game
And i havent got above level 15ish because i keep getting bored and re doing another char. And then i get bored of doing the same quests over and over during the first 5-6 hours of gameplay and then i get bored of skyrim.

I cant be the only one.... can i?

Its a vicous cycle

I've played Skyrim for 438 hours so far, on my first (and only) char, and I am not bored. I am lvl 73 btw.

I have done something similar.You are trying to find a character to play.Since this game offers total freedom to make the mix of abilitys you like....expect to experiment.If you don't like freedom to try different combinations...you may not like this game.

You have not even given your character time to advance. If you get that bored so quickly up your difficulty level. That will keep you busy trying to work out a way of getting through the quest. Or perhaps you just want to walk around blasting everything without putting too much thought into it?? Just asking!!

Yes I have done the same thing when I only had skyrim for 360, What I did was download pise:improved skyrim experiance and other mods that make the game a fun challenge like frostfall and such. It allowed me to become more immersed and so far I've yet to restart or consider it.39 hours on my new file. :)

The only char i got up to 15 was a conjur archer with sneak and it started getting boring cus i would just go into stealth and pratically 1 shot almost everything other then dragoons

74 huh? Better get busy I mean I've only got 600hrs myself and I don't really play that often.

Sneak characters are too easy -because- of the boost, try a non-sneak and you'll find the challenge/fun of the game.

I love making new characters. I have played a LOT of hours, I have characters that have made it over lvl 70 and characters that only made it as far as ahem, Helgen. I can relate to hating redoing the early quests. There are several mods that will skip Helgen, such as Random Alternate Start - which will dump you somewhere random in the map. That can help. You can also ignore the main questline and just wander off and catch a carriage to Riften and join the Thieves Guild, or Winterhold to join the Mages College, or check out the boy Aventus Arretino in Windhelm for what was my fave questline - the Dark Brotherhood. You can ignore all the major questlines and just wander off exploring the map and seeing what sort of trouble you can get yourself into. I must have over a thousand hours ingame now and I still occasionally find somewhere I've never been and it STILL takes my breath away when I do. Ramping up the difficulty levels can really help you stay awake too. Although with certain quests that I have to redo and am bored by I drop the difficulty to Novice and sprint through them...

I highly suggest a battle mage on Master. I always keep a shield in my left hand and switch between a bound sword or a destruction spell in the right hand. I like it because I can play for an hour or 2 as a warrior and then if I get bored I can switch it up and play as a mage for a while.

Stop doing the same thing over and over.

Many will say that you can play whatever quests you want, and explore different areas of Skyrim; and they're right. Don't play the main quest; Skyrim is an Open World Sandbox game; this isn't CoD, you don't have to do the objective.

As for me, I'm 125+ hours into Skyrim and I'm not even close to doing all the quests [I probably haven't even completed a 3rd of the quests]; if your repeating the same quests, then that's your fault.

But also who commented on the battlemage... i think i will try that, ive always wanted to and you bring up a good point that if i get bored of magic i can kind of switch it up, or do both at once.... maybe that is what i need.

I've got 280 some hours now, most of it on my second character. On my first character, I ended up at around 70 hours and I got bored and took a six month break. Honestly though it's quite possible to play for tens of hours and never play the same quests. I didn't do one of the major quests until about twenty hours ago, and now I'm on my second major quest (fighting for the Stormcloaks).

It might just that this isn't your type of game. I cut my teeth on Morrowind and Oblivion, not to mention all the Fall Out incarnations.
