10 Subtle Details That Make Skyrim WAY More Interesting

9. You Can Pickpocket-Kill Briar Hearts

Skyrim Secrets

Forsworn Briarhearts are amongst some of the trickiest enemies in the game. At least in the earlier parts. Everyone knows after twenty hours you can knock the moon out the sky with a dull twig, but that's beside the point. They have high HP and are surrounded by Hagravens or several other forsworn.

However, if you can sneak up behind them and pickpocket their briar hearts out of their pocket, the die instantly. Simple as that. Using good ol' fashioned Skyrim sneaking to literally steal someone's heart from them...

It's not that useful however as they have exceptionally high sneak detection, and by the time you have good enough sneak, you can one-shot everything anyway. But, a cool detail nonetheless.


I like video games, writing and writing about video games. Expect sarcasm and the dry wit of a Brit. And the occasional rant of a unhappy Scot. You know... the usual.
