The Skyrim bathing problem

#1grandmortPosted 12/29/2011 7:55:45 PM
I can't bathe.

I haven't bathed in 209 days. It's now the 14th of First Seed and I feel dirty.

I'm serious, how is it that a game which lets me undress, change attire, conjure familiars, cook, concoct potions, kill Dragons (and even buy Ebony Ingots!) doesn't let me bathe?

I can rest, I can sleep... I can FUS RO DAH all I want AND I CAN COOK !!! (by the way I highly recommend the Elsweyr Fondue) but I can't wash!

Sure, there are many jars, pots and other miscellany around for "bathroom" purposes, but I CAN'T BATHE!

What the...?

I tried to melt a Frost Atronach over the edge of cliff once, I was standing underneath shooting fireballs hoping to take a nice shower but that didn't work out too well...

I even mixed Lavender with Powdered Mammoth Tusk and Troll Fat in the hope to make a nice "Provence" style soap but here again I failed...

I was hoping to discover a new "Potion of Cleaning" somewhere in a dark dungeon, an "Elixir of Ultimate Bathing" or a "Scroll of Scrubbing", but again, no luck there...

Bethesda, I'm disappointed... Lydia is starting to complain about the smell... (I sweat a lot killing Dragons!), what to do?

I guess I'll have to keep "swimming" a lot...

Same here dude. I stink. Lydia doesn't pay me any mind. :/ I lost my flow once I found out I became dragonborn.

Is there a shout or complicated way to do that?

That's it?  Not interested.  Perhaps I'll bathe in the blood of my foes instead.

360 no scope a Giant with your bow as you go cliff diving into a shallow lake.

Works 30% of the time, every time.

The only way to bathe is to hit the water at a high enough velocity without any armour on.

Possible places to do so include:
The college of winterhold.
A mountain.

and for the ultimate bathing experience.
