... is this game really difficult? I'm level 8 so far and I've already been wtfpwned on more than 1 occasion (thankfully Oblivion and Fallout have taught me to save often).
I expected fights with Dragons to be difficult, but Falmers, Giants and Spriggans seem to open up a can of whoop-@@@ and kill me in under 5 hits (especially Spriggans - they do alot of damage, chase you and are very fast). I tried turning the difficulty down to novice (it was at the default setting before) but it's still just as bad.
I'd really like to go out and explore the immensely large world but I don't want to get killed by something I've got no chance of defeating which isn't fun at all. Don't get me wrong, I like a challenge, but not an impossible one.
Any advice? Also, where can I buy food/health potions or buy ingredients to make them? They don't come by often and I've nearly ran out of the ones I did find.
