A Skyrim enthusiast recently shared a fascinating video showcasing their recent encounter with a mammoth, which took an unexpected turn when a dragon swooped in to dispatch the massive creature in hot pursuit. After sharing the video on Reddit, the player received a barrage of questions from fellow Skyrim enthusiasts curious about their survival tactics. Some astute observers even pointed out the player's clever method of luring the dragon toward the formidable mammoth.
In the vast expanse of Tamriel, mammoths stand out as gargantuan adversaries often found near giant camps scattered throughout the wilderness. These mammoths are notorious for their imposing size and deceptively agile movements, posing a significant threat that can easily trample novice Skyrim players. Consequently, both mammoths and their giant guardians have earned a reputation as some of the most challenging encounters in the early stages of the game. However, with sufficient gear and experience, players can adeptly dispose of mammoths, harvesting their tusks for specific quests.
Despite the inherent danger of a rampaging mammoth, Skyrim dragons prove to be formidable adversaries, as demonstrated by one player. Reddit user Krypt0KusH shared a 29-second video on the r/skyrim subreddit, capturing their mammoth encounter. While dragons taking down mammoths is not a common sight in Skyrim, the player managed to lure the mammoth into the path of a dragon, resulting in a dramatic showdown. The dragon, after breathing a few icy blasts, seized the mammoth with its claws and finished it off by dropping it from a lethal height.reddit_https://www.reddit.com/r/skyrim/comments/18s7e8p/i_was_chased_by_a_mammoth_then_this_happened/
Interestingly, the dragon refrained from attacking the player, and the user humorously revealed the use of a mod that allowed them to tame the dragon responsible for the mammoth takedown. In the comments, players acknowledged the unexpected surprise of snatching and dropping mammoths and joked about the fate of any bandits in the dragon's path.
