and having a fucking dog is SO FUCKING ANNOYING. they need to patch this shit asap. its hard to explain how annoying they are so just get one and try playing normally in a city/hold/town/village.
only advantage is, they are fucking TANKS lol and they deal decent damage too
and i still havent gone past the mainstory line after the first dragon and i've put in 20 hours already after that. I just keep mindlessly picking up all these side quests and shit.
