Do magic resistance and flame, frost and shock resistance stack?

I enchanted every possible piece of my armor with a magic resistance enchantment, but as that are only two pieces of armor if you don’t use a shield I decided to add some elemental resistances on the other armor pieces. So I now have two times magic resistance, some shock resistance from my armor and […]

Is there a way to get rid of the old enchant?

I have come across many enchanted items of the same sort. For example Items of Sneak that increase sneak skill by different percentages.

What actions freeze time?

Some actions freeze time, like opening your inventory, pickpocketing someone, opening your favourites etc. Recently I was going to talk to someone, and I noticed someone else I hadn’t spoken to, so I spoke to them first.

What does “improve them twice as much” mean with respect to smithing perks?

Most of the perks on the Smithing skill tree seem to unlock new material/construction types that can be crafted.

How do I find out what version my Skyrim is patched to?

Today’s Skyrim patch has some unfortunate side effects. I’ve turned off updates for the game in Steam for the time being, but I can’t find anywhere that indicates whether it’s already been updated or not.

What strategy should I use to beat a Hagraven as a Sneaky Archer?
