Besides if you are that worried about spoilers, then reading a thread about the game probably isnt a great idea :lol:

So after making somewhere around 700 Iron Daggers/Leather Helms & Bracers, I finally made some dragon scale armor. Pop a potion and wear any jewlery you have for smithing, it boosts you over 100. BUT, it's sorta sucks. It has a great armor rating (chest is 174 at lvl 30) but you can't disenchant faction armor (like DB, Thieves Guild) who seem to give the best enchanted armor. So if you can upgrade it I imagine it's going to be awesome, but I doubt we'll find things like double damage and weapon % boosts on looted armor or armor for sale. At least I never seem to.

picked it up based on this thread the other day, haven't had much time to play. Got through the intro and then headed up the mountain to the dungeon with the bandits and golden claw. Based on the little time I've played, I think it's pretty awesome. I usually don't like rpgs, hated oblivion and really only like fallout because at least I get guns. This one is pretty fun though and seems to have less of the crap I hated about oblivion (i got raped by a random spawn about 4 hours in that would spawn on me no matter which direction I went from my last save. Totally turned me off from the game).

I don't have the time to probably play this for 100 hours, but I plan on playing it quite a bit! I like making sneaky characters and thieves, which tends to be a horrible idea in rpgs for the most part I've found, but with the better hybrid combat system, I'm doing better.

We ran into this issue with my wifes comp, she had a decent prebuilt but it had a POS integrated GPU. I had given my buddy my old 8800 GS card and a 500w PSU, snagged them back to test and the game runs amazing now. With black friday coming up if your looking to upgrade this may be the time.

not true, I found two different enchants that do damage increases, both of which were for 1 handed weapons. a necklace that does + 30 and a ring with a +20 %


One thing that im questioning is does the extra percentage matter at over 100% ? I have 5 grand soul gems that I want to enchant a blacksmith suit of armor with but Im scared to waste them,..... I may just make a game save and then try making weapons with and with out them equipped....

I tested it out on my dragon armor, this is for smithing but may work

I made one suit, it was at 148, then I put a ring on that boosted it by 20% and a potion that I think was another 20%, it made the armor 178.

I can't remember if this was stock or upgraded, it may have been the final upgraded number for both.

As for finding stuff... man I must just suck :lol: but I got lucky with all my dragon fights sans like 2, they'd always attack cities I was in.

Yeah, one of the dragons I just killed attacked me while I was in a city. I came back later questing around after I had killed it and there was a big round circle of potions and crap on the ground, I guess the alchemist bit the dust in one of the random attacks. I love that. It also explains why his store was empty and I could just loot everything.

I'm going to put all my pots in my house, I imagine I'm carrying 75# at least of them. I need to just get a few out and come back and refill when necessary. My blacksmithing is at 85, I'm almost to dragon armor, woo.

SPOILERS!!!! BELOW!!!!













For those of you that played the Shivering Isles expansion for Oblivion--- Looks like the Champion of Cyrodil (aka The Hero of Kvatch) has settled into his role as the new Mad God "Sheogorath" quite well. I now it's him because he makes references to being there when Martin went and became a holy dragon avatar of Akatosh, the Grey Fox, the severed head of whatshisnutz's mother and how the tname of "Sheogorath" was passed down from himself to himself (Madgod to Madgod ---- becoming the new Sheogorath.)

He has some good quotes too. :lol:

Well I don't care who you are, if someone sneaks up behind you and shoves 20inches of skyforge steel thru your back and out your chest. . . that's it dude, game over. All else can be roleplayed away, but that is pretty much a game ender. Kinda wish that if an NPC successfully sneaks up on you then they could do it. That'd be awesome.

Is it just me, or does it look as if someone mistook the cooking pot for a chamber pot? Doesn't matter whether I'm making roasted rabbit or venison stew, it looks like I'm stirring some chunky runs. AND WHY THE OBLIVION CAN I NOT MAKE SOME GORRAM BAKED POTATOES?!?! Oh, and you can't cook dogmeat either.

My clothes needz more cow bell. I am severely lacking in pouches and satchels for shit carrying. Though I am likeing my dark brotherhood gear. And to think, the only person I had to kill to wear my very own set, was the bitch who was wearing it before me. The dark brotherhood is no more in Skyrim. Their sanctum is bathed in the blood of murderers.

yeah the back stab + dark brotherhood gloves + assassins blade (x15 dagger perk) = x30 multiplier.... I have been waiting for this for YEARS...... makes my sneak character a match for those heavy armor wearing orcs with war hammers...

It was a odd twist on DB, but I liked it, especially how it played out.

And I stabbed a GIANT...in the LEG, if Dragons weren't able to detect me so easy I imagine I could one shot them as well.

SPOILERS BELOW!!!!











Just found a rather sad story of events that unfolded in one of the Northern lighthouses. That scenic story telling that Beth did in Fallout 3 carried over quite well in this location. Creepy atmosphere too. One has to really pay attention to detail to get the whole story. I knew something was awry even when I first pulled up to it on my horse, but I never would have guessed what laid just inside. I was all, "Just another savage race of semi-intelligent creatures, maybe they'll come around in another thousand years." But now I have no qualms on the idea of wiping out every man, woman, and child of the Falmer species. They're like rabid goblins except they don't shit on the carpet as much. Fuck'em. I roleplay the idea of roasting every crib filled tent with as much regard to the preciousness of life as a serial arsonist, magic flamethrower style. Still trying to find a use for the charrus chitin though.


[edit] Uhh. . . why is it that my Skyforge steel daggers are not showing up on the list for upgrading at the grindstone?? It's the only weapon I know of that doesn't even show up as an option to improve. Oh, and one doesn't need any type of ingot to improve the Blade of Woe. Pretty sure it was supposed to be ebony, judging by the shape of it, but oh well. It's a roleplaying game, so I'll just roleplay it. Like torching Falmer tents with their young still inside., what ever gets me thru the day. In any case, I was really hoping to dual wield 2 skyforge daggers (upgarded to legendary of course) as the visual aesthetics of the steel dagger makes me want to go all McStabbity Stabbstabb on people. I thought NPC's were walking around with shortswords on there belts, but they were just steel daggers. Those things are really long compared to any other type of dagger and they would suit my character's style very well. [/edit]

Does Lydia favour one-handed weapons or two-handed? I can't tell, so I have her rocking an ebony axe and shield (with Dawnbreaker as her back up.) She really seems to work well with axe and shield, but she'll sometimes equip a two-handed weapon as well at random times. Figured someone with the game guide to enlighten as to the answer.

MOLON : yeah I found that light house yesterday...... Did you carry out his last wishes? its nice if you did.


I have pretty much ditched all weapons other than my bow and two sets of two enchanted glass daggers. One set in fire damage and one set in cold damage, and I have taken the dual wielding path.

RANT: ok one of the first mods I want is the ability to break down faction armor and "Unique" weapons .... I have come across an AWESOME set of heavy ebony armor that I got from a daedric quest that would BE PERFECT for a sneak type character BUT it is no available to be un enchanted. Same for a sword that I found that causes fire damage to undead and causes them to flee ......

I'm dual wielding a matching set of Blades Katana I made called "Fang of the Dragon." Upgraded to lengendary and enchanted with 20pts fire on each, once I use the "Fuck yeah, I'mma swinging my swordz fast as shit!" shout then nothing can stand in my way. Giants, mammoths, your mom, no one stands a chance. Or so I thought. . . ran into another ancient dragon that was hiding on a out cropping of rock and frosted with snow (so the bastard blended in and ambushed me). Had my ass handed to me in a lunch box just before he kicked my dog and smacked Lydia around. Next time, I'm going Lycan on his ass.
