Just killed my first Giant today on my own
i was supposed to have Faendal help me but he didn't last a second, the Giant sent him flying to the moon with his first hit lol. Thought i was in danger but i'm equipped with Slow. There is no better thing to use on Giants than Slow.
*worked on my enchanting a good amount today. Once i got soul trap i was able to fill all the lesser and petty gems i had which i used to enchant any weapon or armor i'd pick up. My archery is all the way up to 60 already
