Made a silly mistake before; turns out you can get a dog AND a companion. Add in a horse, and your merry band starts packing some serious firepower. Or some nice fodder when you anger a giant
Other tips I learned:
-You can't fast-travel while overburdened... unless you're on a horse.
-I've heard that holding a torch while you pick a lock decreases its difficulty (apparently it's mentioned in a book in the game, that heating a lock will soften it). Sounds too good to be true, but I'll try it when I get home tonight.
-If you want to know a lot of locations, click the little flags on the maps in a jarl's hall. Each flag will mark the location on your map,
allowing you to fast-travel to it.
-Took me a while to realize this, but you can hotkey your favorite spells/weapons instead of using the favorites menu. It's a lot easier to push a 1-9 button rather than pushing Q and manually selecting a spell. Just favorite the spell, then in the favorites menu push the relevant number button. Voila!
Edit: Oops, guess you need to still discover them before you can fast-travel! Edited, Nov 14th 2011 12:54pm by LockeColeMA
