Skyrim Player Perfectly Explains Why Everyone Hates Couriers

Bethesda Softworks

A Redditor on the Skyrim subreddit has posted an extremely infuriating video that highlights why we all hate the damn couriers in The Elder Scrolls. It's been a whole decade since we last stepped foot in Tamriel, but even 10 years later, we can't get enough of playing as the Dragonborn (and hating couriers).

What Happens In The Video?

In the video, poster u/Weary-Philosophy1806 was in the middle of fighting a Frost Dragon in the Skyrim tundra. The dragon’s frost breath nearly killed them, but they paused to take a health potion. Upon unpausing the game, a courier decided to take the opportunity to deliver them a letter.

This froze the player in place, as they were unable to move or use their weapons. Seeing it's change, the dragon took advantage and killed them on the spot. Jeez, thanks courier.

It’s an almost triggering watch for those who have experienced the wrath of Skyrim’s couriers, who through rain, sleet, or dragon fire will make sure they stop you at the most inopportune moment to deliver their cargo. One commenter on the thread kindly informed the OP that there is a mod called "Shut Up Durak! Can’t You See I’m Busy," which changes the AI of the couriers so they can't interrupt you in a fight. Sadly, it's a little late in this case. 

Who Else Do Skyrim Players Hate?

There are a fair few NPCs that Skyrim players hate for one reason or another. At the top of the list is likely Nazeem. He’s a denizen of Whiterun and as pretentious as they come thanks to his line, "Do you get to the cloud district very often? Oh, what am I saying, of course you don’t". Unsurprisingly, this annoys players into murdering him many times over the past decade.

Also in Whiterun is the Talos-loving preacher, Heimskr, who is far too loud for his own good and delivers irritating sermons constantly. Opening the doors to hatred and letting it flow, who else can't we stand?

Skyrim’s resident jester, Cicero, is another NPC who players can deliver anecdote after anecdote detailing his annoying deeds. His voice actor did a fantastic voice playing him too, bringing a whiny, high-pitched tone to his lines. We have no doubts all these characters have been slain more than the actual enemies in Skyrim at this point.

The Skyrim Anniversary Edition is set to release soon on November 11, with some new features giving players another chance to dive into the world and dispose of the annoyances who fill the land. Though, if you do want to use that courier mod, you may have to wait for a port to the newest edition of the RPG. 

It will release for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and select PC storefronts.
