A fan of The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim has shared an image of one of its achievements, revealing an interesting stat about legendary dragons in the game. Dragons play a key role in both the story and gameplay of The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim.
For starters, the main character is called Dragonborn and can use special powers known as dragon shouts. The main antagonist of Skyrim is a dragon as well, and players will fight several of them over the course of the playthrough. Users will face different types of dragons as they journey across the world, with more challenging enemies appearing as players level up. Now, one fan has shared an image that reveals an interesting stat about legendary dragons in Skyrim.
A Reddit user named BlackTearDrop has shared an image describing one of the achievements players can earn in The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim. Titled Legend, it tasks gamers with killing a legendary dragon in the game, but the image reveals that only 4% of the user base has unlocked this achievement. BlackTearDrop appears surprised at the seemingly low percentage, but fans in the comments section offer various plausible reasons for this number.
Users should note that legendary dragons only begin to appear in the world of Skyrim after players have reached at least level 78. It can take a long time for gamers to reach this level, and it looks like fans would have finished Skyrim’s story as well as a majority of quests long before they get to level 78 and beyond.
One user mentions that they completed everything in The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim in 150 hours but had only managed to reach level 58, while another fan claims to have leveled up to 78 in 290 hours. It looks like most players agree that customers will either finish Skyrim or drop the game way before they can start fighting legendary dragons, which may be a big reason for this low percentage.
Furthermore, using mods while playing The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim disables the achievements system, so it wouldn’t unlock for gamers even if they had defeated a legendary dragon. As mods have contributed to Skyrim’s longevity throughout these years, users who have played the game for such a long time may be unable to get the achievement. In the end, fans appear to agree that getting to a level 78 is a massive grind.
