I've meticulously cleared almost all of the dungeons and forts around Whiterun and Falkreath. I haven't been to any other holds yet and I haven't gone to the Greybeards yet. I am 24th level.
Now, that being said, I only have about 75 hours in this build. I have restarted several times. I am playing on Master difficulty with a Hold Guard build - using hold guard armor, 1-hand with shield. Not pumping smithing except for the occasional gear upgrade. Not using enchanting AT ALL and I am also not using any enchanted gear or spells.
So that means I spend more time than average sleeping, resting, and otherwise being cautious. Random saber cats or trolls can be instant death if I am not overly cautious.
He's maxed out in terms of best-in-slot gear, and the necessary perks for the build (heavy armor, dual-wielder, enchanter/blacksmith). I guess I could go back and train up his magic and sneaking skills and maybe medium armor and bow skills, but I just don't see the point. The dude can pretty much 1 shot anything in the game. I guess I could increase the difficulty, but it wouldn't make anything any more interesting because I can't progress any further anyway, it would just make exploring more challenging.
