They don't show a lot, but a few moves reminded me too much of the old Gamebryo animations. It's one of the biggest immersion killers in Bethesda games, together with the actual bugs.

We can only be optimistic that they've identified this gaping flaw in this franchise and have assured us it is/is being addressed.

In response to Reply # 7


  

          

leaping (backwards) over bricks in ruins while pulling & nocking an arrow, then putting it in the bear's forehead (with minimal damage)...that was pretty stupid.

But I think the gameplay will be better balanced to compensate for having to take more licks per encounter, and I'm relieved to hear that archery in particular will be made a lot more realistic.


I'm salivating at the idea of building a skulking, stealthy assassin mage, something along those lines.

9. "I always play through with like 3 or 4 characters"
In response to Reply # 8


  

          

I change a few things but oveall play them in that role... Mage, Assassin, Barbarian.

In Oblivion I had a Acrobatic Khaajit Thief with all Archery and Alchemy, A Female Breton High Mage that literally couldn't take damage because I had 102 DMG REFLECT, A Redguard Blade Knight and a Female Orc Hammer Warrior. (Damn just remembering I played around with a high elf and a wood elf too, God I had too much time on my hands for that game)

This time around I'm already planning to play as maybe a Redguard or Dark Elf Battle Warlock, an Argonian Assassin, and still figuring out any other builds I want to play with, probably screw around with the Nords and Imperials this time around too.

4 years and only one moar month left!

Yo, I used to go into the Imperial City and cast a spell at a guard and just stand in the middle of the city while everyone killed THEMSELVES hitting me. Every so often I'd summon one of them big ass yellow crocodile things to fuck with people every so often.

Let's not even talk about the spells I created.

Gotdamnit, I might take that following weekend off to go into full slob mode.

18. "Man, I created SO MANY custom spells. My last guy was"
In response to Reply # 16


  

          

as much an illusionist as anything...and being able to do spells by touch made it all the better.


One joint I called "Suicide Bomb"...I had to boost my attributes AND my magicka to be able to even use it, then would sneak in, and do something like 100 fire damage for 3sec in 50' by touch. Then, follow that with a "Riots" (frenzy up to lvl 25 in 50'), & even a big group would finish each other off. That one was a lot of fun in towns, too...heh


I was late to the customization game, though. A previous Khajiit assassin I'd played would have benefited SO much from some custom items & spells.

With that said: I need to either get rid of my pc before this game gets out, or give up the last two months of this year.

It's a lot more..subtle...than the Elder Scrolls joints. Not a bad thing, and the story line is tops. And I have to say the combat was a lot of damn fun.


But compared to Oblivion, it felt very much controlled and corralled. Not as much as Deus Ex HR, but that game made it feel more natural whereas I kept thinking I should have more freedom than I did in the Witcher 2.



This is yet another reason I'm struggling to wait patiently for Skyrim.

My main thing with this is the alley like proximity of the town in this video. I kind of hope Skyrim has towns like this with hidden nooks and corners and dark alleyways for some fun surprises.

while i'm a bit disappointed that you can no longer level up by jumping and that they have done away with individual armor pieces, it sounds like they've made a lot of improvements to the base systems and the engine for a more enjoyable and smoother experience. i bet they keep the tradition of keeping all the good quests away from the main story line, as they should. i don't think i ever actually finished oblivion...

hopefully i'll have some time to play it between semesters

bethesda is doing a lot of streamlining: simplified armor, only 3 attributes, compared to the ...8? in oblivion + i think they consolidated some magic schools. i'm sure it's for the best but i hope it's not a mass effect 2-style over-simplifying. it's an rpg and i needs my numbers!

Look at the matching set bit here: http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Heavy_Armor_(Skyrim)


I know that's wikia pages, but I bet someone would've done a lot of editing had the whole piecemeal armoring system been disbanded.




& I understand they're absorbing Mysticism into the other schools. Much as I liked the idea of specializing in one of many types of magic, there wasn't incentive enough to not just learn them all in Oblivion anyway. Long as the spells are there, the schools don't matter much if you practice em.

In response to Reply # 25


  

          


http://playstationlifestyle.net/2011/07/06/bethesda-releases-tons-of-skyrim-details/

Is armor handled like in Oblivion (with each body part being welded together) or in Morrowind (with each body part separate)? Will you be able to wear both clothes and armor at the same time?

Matt: The armor system is very similar to Oblivion’s. The main difference is that the upper and lower body armors, the cuirass and greaves, have been combined into one piece. This helps create armor styles that have the look we needed for Skyrim. In most of the Nordic designs we created, the upper armor would completely cover the lower armor, making it unnecessary. We get much better visual results combining those pieces, and it renders a lot faster too, so we can put more people on screen, so that was an easy tradeoff for us. We can also make a lot more armors now, so the number and variation types are more than we’ve ever had.

27. "The only things changed in a streamlined sense, that I've heard are:"
In response to Reply # 24


  

          

-The elimination of the Mysticism magic school (not the spells, just the school to drop points in).
-Cuirass and Greaves are now one whole armor piece. Gloves, Boots and Helmet are still interchangable.
-Blade and Blunt are now One Handed and Two Handed skills and supplemented with dual wielding variations.
-The elimination of Acrobatics and Athleticism supplanted with a sprint ability.

So far the changes have been all for the better without destroying the core RPG experience nad in my opinion adding a robust amount of tactical options with the sprint and dual wielding stuff.

Now I'd like to see what they do in regards to rings and necklaces. I hope they are still in. I wonder how many rings or necklaces you can wear and if they'll add bracelets or anything of that sort.

ah. i misunderstood. good to know that i'll be able to stack enchantments on armor, which is the only reason i would want more armor pieces. theoretically they could just give us one armor piece and a comparable number of slots to put enchanted gems/rocks/whatevers in

>So far the changes have been all for the better without

i'm pretty skeptical of the tactial possibilities in this game; it is bethesda, after all. something tells me that at some point in the game i'll be able to kill a powerful enemy by standing on a rock, just out of reach, chipping away at its health with spells or a long-range weapon. also, a lot of running backwards...

that said, dual wielding will add a lot to the game. i'm imagining a magic-using character dual wielding an enchanted shield that will freeze/slow/paralyze enemies on block (left hand) and a series of stacking damage-over-time spells (right hand)

>Now I'd like to see what they do in regards to rings and
>necklaces. I hope they are still in. I wonder how many rings
>or necklaces you can wear and if they'll add bracelets or

again, enchantment stacking is the name of the game here. i'm guessing there will be fewer accessories than oblivion in order to keep it simple

and not just running up and laying an onslaught down. The spider showesd off in the demo had a projectile web shooting ability and there was confirmation of enemies retreating and setting up traps on the fly. I'm sure level difference might come into play with enemies possibly realizing they are weaker and thus being more defensive.

Yea, you can actually be a real battle mage now. All shield and touch destruction magic. Dopeness.

didn't bethesda make fallout? wiki is helping with that theory, but i guess they only took over the latest editions?

regardless, the only RPG i destroyed was the first KotOR. everything since then hasn't held my attention, though, i have wanted to look at ME2 & 3.

but skyrim ... eesh. this looks bad.

experience is different.

Skyrim has a brand new engine that will seperate it from previous Bethesda releases.

They are similar though, you're right. I'm hoping that this release makes it's seperation from other titles.

In response to Reply # 31


  

          

Not the previous ones, though.


I think there is overlap in the rendering engine between Oblivion & Fallout 3, but aside from a few keystrokes and basic concepts, they really are very different games.

Certain elements of Fallout 3 actually make it into Skyrim, it looks like: the sneak feature looks much more robust, whereas in Oblivion it was hidden vs detected. In Fallout, it was hidden, then caution, then detected, with last known location being written in fairly effectively.


Actually, Fallout 3 is perhaps the most immersive game I've played in the last 10 years or so. Admittedly I'm at best a weekend warrior gamer, but I cover the main bases.

In response to Reply # 34


  

          

after Bethesda let media outlets in for the 3 hour preview and came across one gamer site that spoke on the sneaking.

As you know, they've added stealth kill animations, and sneaking attacks still do 2X dmg, but what is cool that they've added on to is the amount of noise you make when sneaking.

Missed arrows hitting walls beside/behind targets no longer go unnoticed and the NPC will act accordingly to realizing someone is shooting arrows at them. The person describing this playthrough made mention of killing a guard that was at a door entrance inside a cave and upon entering the room he was guarding, overhearing the 2 bandits inside:

-"What was that sound? Didn't we put a guard at the door?"
-"Yea... we did."

I thought that was pretty cool.

that game had me hook, line and sinker. unfortunately, that level of immersion also meant that i probaby was never close to actually finishing the game, but i'm okay with that.

whole different feel to the games. Oblivion I picked up recently, I got it when it first came out, and I was still addicted. So many different ways to play and so much to do.

I am pretty scared for Skyrim lol. Getting my magic wielding, bow assassin prepped up in my head.

Pick this up, but seriously, it'll take a ton of time out of your life.

MORE VARIED VOICE ACTORS.

I've already noticed them advertising the Hollywood actors they have on board for the "main characters" and I have to say I really don't give a flying fuck about star power.

Just hire a retarded amount of VARIED voice actors for everybody else in the world.

I really don't want a repeat of the voice acting in Oblivion, All male and female members of one race shouldn't ALL have the same damn voice. Like really yo. Every Khaajit sounds the same? Every Argonian sounds the same? Every Redguard, Orc, Elf sounds the same?

Fuck big talent just hire a shitload of regular ass voice actors to switch shit up.

I forgot how incredibly few actors they had.

Hell, Nords & Orcs have the same damn voice it seems. Wtf?



But they're talking about over 60,000 lines of audio recorded, and "many more voice actors".

Still, that would've been a cool thing to crowdsource, find ppl who wanted to record lines at local studios, & if they were up to snuff, have them play a whole character.



They took out the hand-to-hand combat skill, it looks like. I like the idea of it in principle, but are you really gonna palm-punch a Redguard in plate mail? Neckchop a dragon?

The new "brawl" speech option in conversations is telltale.

Have you seen the latest sneak peeks? The shit looks way darker than Oblivion. There was a scene where some NPC executioners decapitated somebody on the gallows. Blood and all.

Feels more like Fallout. Can't wait to see if that's a good thing or not.

Incidentally, in one of the RipTen interviews, they mentioned 70+ voice actors (vs about 12 in Oblivion). I'm with it.



And yeah, after playing Dragon Age and the Witcher 2, I have to say I'm a fan of the trend towards darker, grittier worlds. The Witcher 2 was just brutal in places. I'm excited as hell to see the shamelessly bright, fantasy-laden Tamriel woven on that loom.


From what I understand, elves are given a hard time of things in general, to say nothing of the two beast races. Kill moves are a nod to the tradition embraced by the two aforementioned games, and I hope there's plenty of fucking blood spray.

49. "Yea just read they employed some Hollywood VOICE ACTORS not"
In response to Reply # 44


  

          

just celebrity voices.

The count is some staggering 70 voices in comparison to Oblivions dozen or so.

They got Jim Cummings!!!!

Jim Cummings = Winnie The Pooh, Tigger, Monterey Jack, Darkwing Duck, Pete from Mickey Mouse, Cat from Cat Dog, etc. etc. etc.

I hope they have Phil Lamarr and Maurice LaMarche too!

however, if it wasn't for Skyrim I would be getting into BF3 more but I don't even want to start it to know that as soon as Skyrim comes out I will play. I wouldn't be able to hold out for it.

It's out there if you search for it, most articles are including a lot of extra leaks and spoilers, so I won't link anything but screens of a werewolf and werewolf powers on the skill tree are out there.

I know this game will be insanely epic with so much to do. I can't wait to just sit down and lose hours.

Sadly, I am getting sent to some courses and won't be able to buy or play until end of november.

The world feels much bigger than Oblivion or Morrowind. The levelling system is so much better, and the side quests are more fun and varied than in the past. I haven't encountered any noticeable bugs yet, which is a surprise but there's been a few fairly hefty frame rate drops here and there (ps3 version), but they're not too common.

Over all, my Bosmer thief is settling into the world quite nicely. I'm going to work my way into the Dark Brotherhood when I get back from work tonight.

I only got in a couple of hours last night, but they were everything I dreamed of.

The Dunmer deathmage is gonna kick ass. Archery is so much more satisfying, it's ridiculous, and I started with the Sparks spell. I LOVE LIGHTNING.


Busy the rest of the day, but tomorrow morning I'll be up bright and early. lol

when playing these games lol.

I haven't accomplished anything! So far the game is fucking amazing. The scope is great, dungeons feel better.

I'm playing a Thief/ Assassin/ Magic user type. Archery is good, but doesn't seem to kill them in one blow like it used to, probably when I get to a higher level with better sneak multipliers it will. One thing I do love though is if I hit a dude while sneaking with an arrow, he doesn't automatically detect me, I can sneak attack him again if I'm crept up in the shadows.

Magic feels strong, its fun as hell shooting jets of flame out of your hand at someone. I use it mostly for if people get to close.

Had one companion get his skull smashed in already. He's dead. Oops.

My obsessive compulsive thief tendencies are back. This game will be the end of my social life.

I wasn't a fan of any of the other Elder Scrolls games, so I'm glad I gave this a chance. I am rolling with magic and having a damn good time.

Time just flies when I'm playing this

spent the first day breaking into houses and picking pockets in Riverwood and Whiterun. felt like switching it up and did the two quests at the falls, then did some tanning/smithing, then got randomly attacked by some hired thugs.

there is so much to do that if anything starts feeling like a grind you can always switch it up.

I assume it was a bug. At first I was afraid it had something to do with my new werewolf status, but I see no mention of that in the forums.

But I killed this frost dragon. I know he was dead because I took his hide and his bones. But he just sat there twitching. Didn't glow or shine or anything. I kept poking at the corpse and yelling at it with my force breath to move it around, to the point where one of the city guards walked up and asked me to stop because I was scaring the townspeople. But it just kept sitting there twitching.

Maybe it's because I hadn't seen the greybeards yet. I have now, so I'm on the hunt.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

i've been going with Ungreth the Unbroken (or whatever her name is), mainly because she was free and i didn't feel like dropping 500 gold on a merc in Whiterun.

but then i became Thane of Whiterun and have the option of using my personal housecarl as a companion.

Ungreth seems to be doing alright. i load her up like a mule with all of my loot and she doesn't die too often.

In response to Reply # 97


          


We were clearing the bandits out of a fort and she did some really dumb shit. I don't remember what it was, but I remember not being bothered. I also got tired of her complaints about carrying loot. Sven and Ungreth were happy helping out with the loot.

I was happy with Sven (the minstrel from Riverwood) and Ungreth. Sent them both back home on happy terms. But lately I've just been running around on my own. I got tired of the close quarters fights, and never being completely sure that the guy I'm swinging at is actually someone I want to kill.

My least favorite follower was a guy who was assigned to me. I was clearing out a cave full of vampires for a town on the way to Solitude (I forget it's name -- something with an M). This guy was just following me. I wasn't allowed to give him orders. More annoying, he refused to sneak, which is a problem when you're clearing out a cave.

He can teach you archery, and this can be exploited for infinite archery. In principle it could be done with any follower who teaches something (unless Bethesda patches it).

You tell him to follow you. Then you have him teach you archery, for money. But then, since he's following you, you can take the money back from his inventory (it's not considered stealing according to the rules, because he holds your loot). Then repeat ad nauseum.

I went back to the dragonsreach(?) where i got her to try and find her (bitch had a ton of high priced weapons, armor and dragon bones/scales of mine). i couldn't find her anywhere, i was distraught. luckily, and i mean luckily apparently because this is one of the only ways to retrieve her... i had bought a house in whiterun w/all that money i was sitting on (from selling everything i can find) and she was kickin it at my pad waiting for me.


Another thing.... my ocd in this game has me hoarding everything. got a ton of high valued weapons (500+ gold) that i dont want to sell until i can get good value for them. get pissed when i sell a crown for 200 gold only to see the shopkeep turn around and sell it for 1000

100. "I kinda regret getting a house in Whiterun."
In response to Reply # 98


          


It's a lot of money (5000, and another thousand or so if you want to make it look like less of a hovel). The bed didn't serve much purpose for me, as I already had a bed with the Companions (if I'm remembering their name right), and even just staying at the inn is more cost-effective the first 500 times you do it.

The one real upside of having a house is the storage chest that I can use for stuff I kinda want to keep, but don't want to weigh me down. Ingots that I don't know how to use yet, weapons that aren't good for me but might be good for followers, that kind of thing.

maybe to get rid of some conditions or something, but i don't think i've slept in a bed yet. i just load up my companion with miscellaneous goods, but now i'm finding that to be an issue since i want to switch companions.

and is there a reason you can't sell certain items? or is it just stolen items? but i need to pawn a lot of this shit off to make some loot.

I sleep mainly to pass time. Like if there's something I need to do in daytime or nighttime but I have to kill eight hours or whatever to get to that point. I guess technically you could just "wait," but sleeping seems more fitting.

Also, if I'm doing some long-distance travel, I'll often try to start bright and early in the morning, as I've heard the beasties get tougher at night.

>and is there a reason you can't sell certain items? or is it
>just stolen items? but i need to pawn a lot of this shit off
>to make some loot.

Sometimes people just aren't interested in certain merchandise. Like if you go to a potion shop, they often won't buy your weapons because it's just not what they sell. Staves and other magic things you often have to take to the town mage to sell.

Stolen items I don't know, as I haven't really been stealing in this game. I seem to remember though that in Oblivion you had to either let some time pass, or go through some sort of laundering process, before regular shops would buy stolen goods. I could be wrong though -- it's been a long time.

mind the $ that went into it. 24/7 storage & access to growing lab of alchemy ingredients is a nice thing to have, and I go to Whiterun a lot anyway since the smithy is right by the door.


Sidenote, I'm a little sad the dragon bones, etc don't have any alchemical properties.

And then I get 100 for clearing the bandits out of a fort and I get a little annoyed. But yeah, now that I've advanced a little more, money isn't a problem. I even shelled out for the rest of the house improvements.

Yeah, I've been saving up all my dragon bones and scales (despite the fact that they seem to be worth a lot of money), thinking that I should be able to make something cool with them. But apparently I'll have to master smithing before that becomes the case.

Not sure but it doesn't seem to affect my kill effectiveness, i.e. didn't take away the perks I've gotten so far. But I can't add any more perks, which is annoying. Somewhere someone said once it levels up it might reset..so I'll try tonight. lol

Just killed like two more dragons in two days. I need to start finding more dragon walls so I can use those absorbed souls for shouts.

but I see I think I'm gonna get my smithing skill up so I can eventually use those dragon-scales for armor and weapons. It's a good way to make dough too.

I'm carrying a pickaxe for good now so when I go into mines, I can get up on some ore.

Plus I just dropped hella loot on a phat Dwarven bow, w/some dwarven arrows that pretty sick.

A sabre cat tried to run up on me, and I put down that fool in one clean shot through it's mouth.

right now I guess I'm shaping up to be an Archer-Mage-Thief with a real respectable one-hand and smithing game.

This game is gonna steal so much of my time.....

I've used Calm a number of times to get behind a tough enemy, then open them up with the 15x damage with dagger perk. Or combine Frostcloak with my Dunmer ancestral power while chopping up these bitches head-on.


Both my alchemy and enchanting are getting kind of slick, too; in fact, I enchanted some Frost damage on my current dagger >: D


Next up, find some more cool enchantments to learn, and put something epic on my Dwarven bow. I have to say, I was worried about arrow availability, but I've never run out or even that low. Maybe if I only used the top-end ones available I would.

In response to Reply # 129


  

          

Cause you just said some shit that I have yet to find or hear of. Frostcloak and Calm? Yeah, I need to find those spells.

and I think I'm eligible for the x6 one-handed damage for sneak attacks, but I just wanna pour more points into my archery and since last night, smithing.

Right now my plan is to hit up a couple of mines, get up on some ore, refine it, hunt animals, make leather and get my skill up so that I can make better armors and refine my current equipment.

What I love is that you can just make jewelry too. I snatch gems up all the time.

I'm gonna be the Jacob the Jeweler of Skyrim, watch.

Next time you see a Flame Atronach rockin' that ruby goblet or the Daedric jesus piece that says "BigAssFlame" in diamonds, you'll know where he copped it....

In response to Reply # 133


  

          

...which is what I love about this game. If you poured all your points into one tree, I'm sure you could get that perk much sooner. maybe before level ten.

also, enchantment, ancestral powers, and other artifacts may play into it.

Like right now, I got an enchantment from one of them stones with a circle in it from around the world, and a couple of rings that are making me juggernaut of one-handedness. Plus I just used some ingots and smithing to improve my armor and my blade.

And at the same time, with the stucture of this game, and the amount of choices you can make I'm sure I'm not even as powerful as I could be even with the badassedness of certain aspects of my character.

Fuck you Bethesda for what you are doing to my life.

1st playthrough is a Ranger type Argonian badass I've named "Brainface". Archery, sneak and thief type shit with two daggers to go hammy when the try and jam me ya diiiiig.

I'm eager to just START a second playthrough to play simultaneously because I'm seeing some of the mage enemies doing shit and I'm like "Damn, magic! You scary!"

Word to that Chilltin Cavern or whatever the fuck it was called. Shit was fucking freaky but came up on a dope Fowler bow and Fowler arrows. Very nice.

It took me close to 2 hours to get all the way to Solitude, (I was determined to go there for some reason) stopping and fully exploring every stop I came across on the way there, which included Rorikstead farm, A bandit camp, a shrine, a puzzle in the middle of nowhere, some wolf killings, a valiant endeavor in killing a mammoth that got caught out there with no teammate or giant whipcracker, and the Fowler cave I mentioned before.

Only one dragon killing so far, haven't gone up to see the graybeards yet.

The graphics really look like garbage for me though. I haven't installed it because of some buggy texture loading that has popped up as an issue that Bethesda plans to patch and my HDMI cable is broken so it looks pretty godawful with no HD and the normal bugginess that comes with a Bethesda game. Still enjoying it though my excitement has been tempered just a bit.

Doesn't mean I'll spend any less time draining into it.

i mean, also gotta keep in mind that the scale of this game will obviously weigh in on the graphics side. My gripe is some physics, but thats old news. Like running up a mountain and you miss a path and end up straight up running sideways on a steep rock. Like wtf.

so i'm in riften and get challenged to a drinking contest. i figured something bad would happen, dude would try to roll me or whatever, and i'd kill him.

little did i expect to wind up across the fucking country in marketh! that city is crazy to navigate at night with its mc escher staircases winding all over the place. i was about to meet with Maven Black Briar, and now i'm questing in the far northwest.

it's all good though, since i went to rid the Forsworn out of a mine and a dragon came down and started flaming them all.

i love this game and it's unexpected twists and turns.

when a frost dragon dropped down on me just outside the East Empire Trading Co. mainly because I was pretty much unprepared to fight a dragon. There were some Horkers that took most of the heat for a bit but I could only get his health down to 1/3 and RAN LIKE A BITCH.

Maybe it's just because I'm a nord (so, cold resistant) and I keep running into frost dragons, but so far I've killed seven or eight dragons and never been seriously hurt. At this point I just get them to land, run right up the their faces, and slash (dual-wielding even) until they fall.

Compared to the epic dragon battles in the Dragon Age games, it's almost kind of disappointing. But then again I do still get killed by trolls and wraiths and stuff, so the dragons will probably become a challenge again eventually.

So far for me the dragon fights still seem pretty major. I'm still low level though.

death. They're kind of like giant lizards, after all, and it's cool for them to not be too mythical IMO.


But I'd expect their breath to do a lot more damage. To be able to run up to a wounded one while he's belching 2000 yr old fiery gas at me, then jump on his head, that's a little too "gentle."

I robbed the College of Winterhold blind like I do everywhere I go. I'm a member and all that too.

I walk by this girl and I hear "why do all my supplies keep disappearing!" I laugh.

Then I talk to one of the guys and he asks me if I could help him locate an item he lost, that I stole, and I go oh, this here? and give it back to him. He's so thankful that I "found" it gives me gold lol

I love this game.

Oh, and fuck dragon priests. They are ridiculous to kill.

I was able to sneak into their camp and loot their chest without them noticing me, though.

On my initial trip to Whiterun I helped the Companions to kill a giant, and that was pretty easy. But I guess he must have been heavily injured by the time I showed up.

one of the ones where they cant run up on you. just stand from afar, use magic, some shouts and some archery and you're straight. i'm level 16 and they kill me in 2 hits but if you have obstacles you can use it to your advantage.

In response to Reply # 153


  

          

He just casually turns around and smashed me with his hammer, launching me half way across skyrim in the process.

Anyway, a get a quest from some Jarl to go take down this giant squatting in some property where he doesnt want this guy. It isn't that far way so I head straight for this dude, with the intent to use arrows, magic and shouts to take him down. I get there, start sneaking and volleying arrows his way and eventually he finds me and starts running up on me so I haul ass to get some distance but in the process, pick up another giant on my tail. So I have two giants chasing after me and im losing stamia.

As I'm fleeing, I come across a hot spring with some tents set up and a couple there practicing the Dibella arts in the hot spring. Their is clothes and wine bottles laying around the edge of the hot spring, so I just interrupted their vacation. However, the giants are behind me but they refuse to come across the hot spring. I don't know why but from their I just use magic, arrows and shouts to take them both down from afar. end of story

that ever did Thievvvvve.

It's a rather robust amount of larceny you can do. It is almost like a fucking criminal underworld than just a ragtag gang of kleptomaniacs like in Oblivion. You got shakedowns, defrauding businesses, lifting shit off important people in broad day, break-ins, the works. Not to mention the newfound consequences of stealing from people. You really feel liek a criminal when those hired thugs make you look like a bitch in town, I be like "Shhhh, no one is supposed to know! I'm a helping guy in daytime, and an incredulous bitch niga thief at night and YOU'RE RUINING IT BY TRYING TO KILL ME FOR STEALING IN THE MIDDLE OF TOWN."

I can't wait to see what interesting things the other Gulds are doing this go around, this playthrough I'm joining the Thieve's Guild and soon the Dark Brotherhood.

Next playthrough will probably be the College of Winterhold and the next playthrough which will be my gung ho warrior class, The Companions.

I'm up to the part where I've got to get Ulfric and Tullius to have a sit down, and finally decided to join the Stormcloaks. So I went and murked the Ice Wraith for Galmer, then returned to Whiterun. I'm unable to speak to Ulfric or Galmer.

I already spoke to Tullius and he's alright with the sitdown, but I can't progress any further without those morons listening to me. I'm a retard so I have no other previous saves to fall back on.

Level 22 and this shit happens.

169. "After 50+ hours in this game... My pros and cons..."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

CONS:
-The old Dwemer city ruins are the most boring (so far, haven't explored all of them) although they do have one of the most intimidating enemies in the game, the Dwemer Guardian.

-There are ALOOOOT of fetch quests. : (

-The AI is still plenty stupid. Some AI constructs are new and work well; guards sorta recognizing your face if you escape capture for a bounty in a town and return "Hey, I think I know you...", humanoid enemies falling to their knees and retreating, and some of the harder enemy patterns are dope like the Wispmothers deploying shades. Like shooting someone with an arrow from sneak, them getting up and looking around and whatnot and upon staying hidden long enough they go back to 'everything is fine, I guess I'm hearing things' mode. Like what? You just got split with a fucking arrow, come fucking find who SHOT you. At least stay on alert the whole time. Batman AA did great work with enemy reactions to stealth attacks, they freaked out, they tried to stay in corners, it was great. I'd like to have seen people take a defensive position or lose their cool or even collute with one another on what to do. Maybe aggressive animals try to scurry off if they didn't know where the sneak arrow came from, I mean what bear/wolf/rat runs in the direction they get shot to find a hidden attacker? I'd like to see enemies pull out torches to find you in the darkness, mages use spells to find you... there's just so much they could have done if they really tried.

Plus I've watched enemies just stand in firey oil slicks when I've shot lanterns down, no one makes an effort to get out of the raging conflagration they're posted up in.

PROS:

-All the new animations are great especially the sprint animation with two one handed weapons eequipped. The running and sprinting animation with two spells equipped is really wierd though.

-EVERYTHING ELSE.

50+ hours in and I still haven't even VISITED three of the major cities, Falkreath, Dawnstar, and Malacar or whatever it's called near Solitude.

170. "Yeah, the human AI is absolutely the biggest shortcoming"
In response to Reply # 169


  

          

in my book, now.


And I can kind of "work around" it to not give it as much of an opportunity to be stupid. Luckily, I can one-shot a lot of things, and the animation of a sneak-shot bandit flopping down dead makes it all better. (Soul Trap on a bow is an incredibly good enchantment btw)


But agreed, it's almost the only real drawback.

171. "It really is. Bethesda is currently in last place when it comes to enemy..."
In response to Reply # 170


  

          

It's really frustrating to a degree and flagrantly apparent with newer titles and IPs making such astounding advancements in enemy AI like Batman, Assassin's Creed, and even Rage, irony aside.

I could come up with a laundry list of shit that any person with their thumb up their ass could have thrown down at the idea table. Not sure why Bethesda doesn't beta test their AI with people that could add insight to things that work and don't work. Or just make the encounters more SPECIAL you know to spice things up. I've already gotten bored on occasion playing this, in the same way I did with Oblivion no less. Maybe it's me growing up as a gamer, maybe it's my play style, who knows.

-Wolves/Cats/Bears/Skeever AI shouldn't act the same as humanoid AI and with animal instinct should be able to track you down without line of sight. Sneaking on them should be extremely difficult.

-Dragons shouldn't do that melodramatic fly into the sky just to nosedive when their health is low. Better scripting there.

-Bandit AI. Make them pull torches to find you in the darkness of caves/ruins. Have them yell for help or retreat to more people. Take a defensive position trying to stay the direction of a hidden attacker. Have them lose their cool and swing into the darkness once the torch goes out. Have them accuse other bandits in the room (how awesome would it be if the bandit hit with the arrow accused the archer bandit of shooting him and attacks him! ... even more deliberation if the arrow used to attack wasn't the same as the arrows he's using!) Bandits with wolves that sniff you out in caves and ruins. Enemies that relight torch sconces.
-Mage AI. Use lighting spells to light the darkness up. Use life detection spells to find you in a failed kill sneak attack.




And to a more hardcore degree why isn't there a leveling in the cooking ability? There couldn't be something added into Alchemy or something? Alot of the food creations are borderline pointless with only a handful of dishes that actually are worth a fuck of lugging around with you. Why not include a hunger meter that damages stamina when you don't eat for a while?

Why no frost damage or affects when travelling in the cold maybe? Certain armors that prevent that damage. It's a freezing tundra after all and I've got on NOTHING.

Why do farmers not react to you plucking all their crops from their land and walking off with them?


On another PRO tally, I do like the segregation of the land. Khaajits are all nomads and cutthroats, Orcs are NOWHERE or are muscle, Argonians are service workers, Dunmer are looked down upon and are usually slumming, etc. It's kinda awesome.

jumping is so over exaggerated. The whole "i cant find te road so ill run on walls until i find it" thing should have died with oblivion/fallout 3. The engine is way too glitchy. I wish it was alot more solid. I wish that if i hit enemies with a sword, limbs/head would actually sever off, like gunshots did in fallout.

In response to Reply # 172


  

          

I could see the ingenuity in some palpable reactions to enemy damage reactions. Bandits with lower rated armor getting arms/legs broken and disabled when struck with higher rated blunt weapons. Limbs severing from higher rated swords.

Maybe even have daggers not even WORK against heavy armor unless it was a sneak attack or only attacks to exposed places in the armor.

Have certain spells that work better against certain armor types. Fire being blocked up steel or iron shields, lighting leather and hide armors on fire for a period of time. Frost slowing all movement on steel and iron. Glass armor negating shock damage.

Like there is still VERY LITTLE tactical options.

I've been one shotting EVERYTHING since level 24 or so.

175. "This game is essentially Oblivion with one great massive facelift."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Problems that were addressed and changed:

-Voice actors
-Character Modeling
-Animations
-Graphics
-Grander environments
-Enemies that don't level with the player

None of the combat issues and AI issues seem to have made any change or improvement. It is that reason I don't want this to get game of the year.

No innovation was made to the gameplay, the issues that plagued the previous title. Combat is still lame duck. Enemy AI is still absolutely abysmal, I mean outright terrible.

I should have played as a different type of character for the first playthrough, because a sneaking thief/rogue type character is god awful boring once you hit the higher levels. I started a battlemage character up last night after just being completely bored with how obscenely rich and overpowered I was with my Lvl 29 Argonian.

5 years and no real changes, I'm a bit disappointed in Bethesda right now. Just a bit.

176. "I disagree with the non-innovation to the gameplay."
In response to Reply # 175


  

          

Enchantment IMO is a valuable gameplay addition. Like...I'm loving the shit out of it, to be honest. It's even balanced well, with my shit getting better than what's available at just the right tipping point.


So is two-handed control, to a subtle but important degree. I never feel disappointed by the logistical choices I have to make in preparing for a fight, magic-vs-weapon-wise.



I agree, the AI was supposed to come a ways but really didn't. Everyone's about as smart as a mudcrab. Also, much as I've benefited from the ease of instant potion effects, I think The Witcher 2 poisoned (no pun intended) my mind. Instant heals are just not realistic. Potions should take time to imbibe as well as take effect.



But...holy shit the whole world is beautiful at the ruins just north of the Mages' College. I'm sure it's because I'm easy, but the actual world created does a lot to ameliorate the play issues for me.

In response to Reply # 176


  

          

got the short end of the stick. While the AI is just embarrassing at this juncture, I can concede that I haven't fully explored all the different playstyles yet.

I still get a couple of great moments that make take my mind away from the issues like the Clavicus Vile quest I played last night. The reveal moment in that quest was kind of great, lol.

-Blackreach kind of blew my mind.
-Coming across Barbas made me smile.
-The Twilight Sepulcher part where the light burned was pretty dope too.

Also, if you hadn't noticed, there are shouts you will only come across if you join certain factions/guilds which is cool.

In response to Reply # 181


  

          

in the wilderness, and I feel myself about to catch a damn shiver..esp. up at the glaciers during a snowstorm. It's just so lonely and cold out there. lol..but the environment is so arresting that just going someplace is memorable.


I'm kinda mixed up after a big event in the series of quests for the Dark Brotherhood. This *just* happened.



And early on, it was kind of crazy taking out a dragon in open land up north near an Imperial camp, back when I was a wimpier character. Tougher, longer fight with a blood dragon. When he finally died, like 20 soldiers all lined up to stare. Shit was pretty dope.

I was in Solitutde and I walked by a guard, minding my own business, and he was like "I better not see you fiddling with any locks or I'll arrest you myself."

I stopped, turned and was like what?!

Shot him square in the chest with an arrow. He went to the ground pleading for mercy. I stood over him and shot him in the back of the head with an arrow. Walked off. No witnesses, no bounty.

lol for some reason I loved it.

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2011-11-29-skyrim-the-first-western-game-to-receive-a-40-40-famitsu-review

my self-imposed skyrim media blackout is paying off; besides this little tidbit and me inadvertently learning that lycanthropy is in the game (via a quick what-was-supposed-to-be-harmless glance at this thread *glares at ansomble*), my knowledge of this game is so poor, that i've been corrected in all of my previous posts in this thread. never before have i wanted to know so little about a game

just another week or so... i need to ace my finals then it's so much skyrim that i'll forget everything i've learned since january

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Kitted out with weapons/armor sets I enchanted myself (mostly...I have Mehrunes' Razor in rotation) and a full range of magicka recharge-rate increasing gear, I can steal souls at a slit of the throat OR at long range, or do shock/magicka damage, or absorb health, etc. with a set of assassins' daggers. Along with Calm, I can hit it from the back *pause* on wild animals *PAUSE* in broad daylight.


Or pick off one or two from a distance, walk in cloaked in magic armor and death, deal some melee damage, then back up and start zapping hoes Raiden-style.


To recap: I'm pretty fucking bad-ass.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I hate that they wear off and you have to replenish. Maybe Im wrong because thats what i assume but i tend to go for pure armor/weapons and give enchanted armor / weapons to my companion. Am I wrong or misunderstanding this thing? Also, you stop getting perks after level 50, correct?

188. "I just recently got up on enchantments."
In response to Reply # 187
Mon Dec-05-11 04:28 PM by stravinskian

          

Now I'm a true believer, particularly on weapons. I didn't get very far into Oblivion before getting distracted, so most of this was new to me.

My trusty Ebony Sword (my main weapon), has a fire enchantment that nicely complements the fire shout. I also use the Dragonbane sword (found in a chest in Sky Haven Temple) for fighting dragons. It has an enchantment that does extra damage on dragons.

Recharging was a hassle until I put the soul bind enchantment (maybe I'm getting the name a bit wrong) on my bow. With that enchantment, if you kill something within a specified period of time, its soul automatically fills one of your empty gems. So every time I snipe something I get a gem refilled, and I always have enough to recharge all my weapons.

I've also enchanted my boots to increase my carrying capacity, gloves to improve one-handed weapon skills, shields with elemental boosts. I also carry around various dragon priest masks, with various powers. It's actually gotten a little silly how often I change around my equipment to match the needs of the moment.

189. "FYI - Armor Enchantments don't wear out."
In response to Reply # 187


  

          

The recent patch broke all the Resistance effects, but otherwise Enchanting can do a lot of ridiculous things. For instance, I have Boots with +35% Sneak and a Ring with the same, which basically makes me invisible once you add in my actual Sneak stat.

Weapon Enchants can be annoying due to the need to recharge, but as stravinskian pointed out there's a perk that refills your weapons when you kill non-humans.

190. "No idea about the perks. That's a bummer if so."
In response to Reply # 187


  

          

But as far as weapons go, you run across dope new ones fairly regularly. All you need is a small stash of loaded soul gems to keep them up, and if they're nice weapons in general, poisons etc serve in good stead even after the charge runs out.

Armors/items never lose charge, however. If I were a tank character, I'd be LOADED and enchanting the shit out of my shit for pure defense/offense. But as a light gear wearer, I benefit a lot from enchantments that help me do distance damage or cause more mage ruckus.



It's stupid as fucking shit I can only wear one ring, though. That is all.

In response to Reply # 193


  

          

My set of mage gear boosts my magicka recharge rate so much, I don't even need to keep upping my total that much. The best stuff is still quest rewards, though..but I can also put certain enchantments on things that up their value a shitload: enchanting skill gains + septims for that ass!

They did do this, Bioware, with Knights of the old Republic back on the old xbox but now they got this MMO coming out, so I don't think it will ever happen. But yes, it could work.

I enjoy other games coming out but the fallouts and the elder scrolls games hold my attention for a lot longer.

it was too much of an rpg. if it was a free-flowing game like Skyrim, would be a different story. It would be dope as hell. I know they Mod games like this but if it was a thought out SW production from the get go, this engine right here would make it epic

all my quests were feeling a bit bloated, and i felt there were some perks etc. that could have been used a little better. so going from a dark elf mage/thief to an orc berserker should be interesting. it's almost worth it alone due to the graphic kills i've been stacking up with dual weapons. just the sheer strength of this character is fun.

One of the first things I did was install Skyrim.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

man i'm just leaving whiterun to walk back to riverwood. i don't like to quicktravel until i get higher up in level.

so i'm like "lemme do some hunting to practice with the bow/arrow"

i see an elk or deer. whatever the fuck it was, fuck that thing.

i draw my bow and arrow. i get in sneak position to get my 2.0x damage.

the arrow cuts through the air in a perfect arc. i was practicing so i'm halfway proficient with my shit.

goddamn elk grazes and lowers it's head.

arrow flies over him.

arrow hits a mammoth.

fuck.

two mammoths.

fuck.

with a giant.

FMredguardL.

so i'm still pissed at missing the elk but i'm kinda amused because the mammoth charges and kills the elk. totally ignoring me a few yards away. then the goddamn giant sees the kill and approaches and i guess i wandered into his line of sight because he immediately went all grunty and charged.

so now i gotta goddamn mammoth and a giant charging. i'm running hard. i'm yelling "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" for like the whole minute i'm running.

the other mammoth. iont know wtf he was.

i start running and i'll be goddamn if a random ass wolf comes out of nowhere, stopping my perfect sprint.

"bonk" the scout.

a nigga got homerunned in the back of the face. i fly about a good 50 feet.

Bears are the meanest sons of bitches OUT THERE.


A frost troll might be uglier, but a cave bear will charge your ass from a hundred yards after he shrugs off that poisoned sneak arrow that would've taken down a small whale.



Once I juiced up my Calm spell, they've been easier. But one chucked me like a bowling ball after I assassin-stabbed him in the ass without him dying. It was up north, along the high ridge overlooking the cold-ass water. He spun around and knocked me clean off the cliff, like "FUCK YOU, YOU STARTLED ME, DIE."


Fuck those guys.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

2nd char.


My first guy is like, shall we say, a Ninja Raiden. A Dunmer mage who's nice with a bow and one-handed sword. Lightning specialist, can silent-cast, basically he raises hell. Only thing is, he's spread a little thin on the perks, because there's so many bad-ass cool things I wanna do.





So I'm thinking about running a dual-wielding mace basher. Either a Redguard for a light-armor murderer type, or an Orc for a heavy berserker. And I wanna get it in with either vampirism or lycanthropy, which I've avoided thus far. Maybe two schools of magic (Alteration & maybe Conjuration?), serious enchantment specialization, and it's on.

In response to Reply # 211


  

          

went from a dunmer swordmage with perks spread all over the place to a dual-wielding orc berserker. mainly been upping one-handed fighting and heavy armor, with a bit of enchanting. been using my bow a lot more as well, but haven't invested any perks in it. i really like the orc's bersker daily power, and use it whenever i'm in the last stage of a dungeon. double power and taking half damage is pretty nice. and as i stated above, a dual-wielding smasher gets cooler finishing scenes than a mage.

In response to Reply # 212


  

          

I'm hoping the light armor will help him stay quick on his feet, and yeah...I can't NOT use a bow whenever chances present themselves. That'll soften a target up if not kill them outright, then I can hit the Adrenaline to sprint in and crack some skulls. With Alteration, I can get some armor boost, which I'll need. Or maybe I can bring the Atronach for a really messy melee via Conjuration, then charge in.

Should be interesting seeing how these cats develop on the slightly different paths!

I'd like to see some combat performance comparisons between axes and maces, though. War axes are an interesting thing for me to keep in mind.

216. "massive list of tips and tricks from reddit (swipe link)"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

there are more in the post.

http://www.reddit.com/r/skyrim/comments/mb8la/massive_list_of_all_the_tips_and_tricks/

Lately been seeing many posts asking/listing tips about the game. I decided to create this one so all of you could post them here for other to see. I will update the OP with each tip posted so people don't have to scroll through the whole thing. Hopefully as we get more tips and tricks in here I can put them in different categories for easier viewing
Here to start us off, some of the tips I saw posted.
THE SPRINT BUTTONS ARE: PC=Alt, Xbox=LB, PS3=L2, you can also sprint on a horse
SAVE AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE F5 IS THE QUICK SAVE KEY
You can rebind all of your keys in the control menu
If you give your companion a torch they will use it at night-LINK
If you want to keep sprinting don't let your stamina run out fully as it takes a few seconds to starts regenerating
If you see oil on the ground there is usually a lamp you can knock on the ground to set the oil on fire
You can dismount a horse in the water and then mount it again to have regular speed-LINK
You can equip a pickaxe and "hit" the ore vein to start mining, likewise you can dualweild them to mine faster
Waiting (Press T) will fill up your Magika/Health/Stamina bar instantly
Try reading every book you see, the bigger the value of it, the more likely it has a free skill up or a quest inside waiting for you
To hide your UI while taking screenshots type in tm in console (~), then type it again to bring it back
Sometimes if a dragon is not landing for a long time try moving to more clear surroundings
You can take torches off the wall to make the room more dark if you are trying to sneak
When attacking with bow from far away press the sneak button to do double damage, even if you are not a sneaky character
Most items that you put inside your home will stay there, so you can safely decorate it however you like
Using Unrelenting force will stop any enemy casting/channeling
Every major city stables has a wagon which you can use to fastravel to other cities you've never been to
In most major holds there is a map with little flags on it that you can use to mark new places on your map
You can buy a dog form a breeder outside Markath for a small price
Your horse can climb up mountains that you couldn't on foot.
You can take keys from your companions to have access to their house
If the NPCs are asking you about your health ("feeling sick?" or "You feeling alright?") that means you have a disease, use a shrine to cleanse it, or craft a disease curing potion and drink it
Don't sell all of your magical weapons since you can disenchant them and level up your enchanting skill that way
You can place baskets on peoples head and then steal their stuff without them noticing -LINK
You can hotkey your favorite items by opening the favorite menu (Q), highlighting the item and click 1-8 buttons on your keyboard
Fire does the most raw damage,Frost and Shock do the same amount of damage, but ice drains stamina and slows the enemy, and Lightning drains magicka.
You can revive every living creature except dragons with the Reanimate spells in the Conjuration tree
Making Iron daggers and Leather Bracers is a quick way to level up early smithing, use them for enchanting skill ups or sell them to a vendor for speech skill ups
When you increase your stamina you also increase your maximum carry capacity by 5
By holding the "Use" key you can move items around.
When you trade armor to your companions they automatically equip it if its better then what they currently have.
Resting in a bed will give you rested status, allowing for bonus XP gain, resting in your own bed (inside your house or one you purchased at the inn) will give you a well rested status allowing for even more bonus XP
By wearing Amulet of Mara (which you can buy in Riften for 200g) you have an option to marry people, marriage provides all sorts of benefits for you. For more info on marriage and list of spouses SEE HERE
To see locations of quests on your map select them in your journal and hit M
To discover new dragon shout words talk to the Argenier the Greybeard leader in the High Hrothgar and he will give you a small side quest and direct you to a new world wall one a time.
You can fast travel while over encumbered with a horse
If you are completely outmatched against a mage (as in, an enemy that uses ONLY magic), try to get behind cover. If you can stay behind cover long enough while the enemy is shooting at you, their magicka will eventually drain, and you can then use a weapon/spell that drains magicka to finish them off while they sit there, helpless
If you are a mage or archer who is outmatched by a melee-only enemy, you can use the terrain to your advantage. If you see a cliff, jump on top of it and your enemy usually won't be able to follow you, giving you precious time to deal damage while avoiding the enemy.
If you are playing a mage character, make sure you check out the Mage College in Winterhold. Just be ready for a very challenging quest chain.
If you are playing a stealthy character, ask your nearest innkeeper about rumors..
Best way to skill up Sneak is preforming sneak attacks
Summoned creatures ( through spells or scrolls) are very powerful and can be a great help in some of the tough boss fights, dragon priests come to mind.
Saving enchanted weapons and disenchanting them will let you level enchanting extremely fast and make good profit out of it since enchanted items are worth more
You can hotkey spells and equipment on the Xbox (and probably the PS3, someone will have to check) by favoriting an item/spell, then holding left or right on the d-pad in the favorites menu with the item/spell you want to hotkey selected. After you close the favorites menu, you will then be able to switch to whatever you hotkeyed by hitting left or right
Atronachs are completely immune to spells of their own type, so if you are mainly a fire spell user, the best atronach to use is the fire one, as you can use your spells without needing to worry about damaging your minion.
Your companion can carry an unlimited number and weight of stuff, but only if you tell them to pick them up in command mode.
Guardian Stones! There are 13 of them across Skyrim. You can have 1 active at a time, but you can change them at will.
The Warrior Stone - Combat skills increase 20% faster.
The Thief Stone - Stealth skills increase 20% faster. The Mage Stone - Magic skills improve 20% faster. The Lover Stone - All skills improve 15% faster. The Apprentice Stone - Recover Magicka twice as fast; twice as vulnerable to magic. The Atronach Stone - 50 extra points of Magicka, 50% Absorb spells, -50% Magicka regen. The Lady Stone - Regenerate Health and Stamina 25% Faster. The Lord Stone - 50 points of damage resistance, 25% magic resistance. The Ritual Stone - Raises all the dead around you to fight for you once per day. The Serpent Stone - Paralyze the target for 5 seconds, and do 25 points of damage once per day. The Shadow Stone - Invisibility for 60 seconds once per day. The Steed Stone - Carry weight +100, no movement penalty from armor. The Tower Stone - Unlock any expert level lock (or lower) once per day.
Grelka appears in Riften after joining the thieves guild. She has over 3300 gold and will buy everything you want to sell
instead of stealing things directly and risk getting caught, pick them up and move them to a secluded room. Then steal the item, hidden from sight.
a good way to level up alteration and rake in some gold coin is by buying/mining iron ore and using the transmute spell to silver and then gold, smelting into bars crafting into jewelry and selling them to vendors
If you make a trainer your companion you can train from them and then take all of your gold right back
Shooting a fireball directly at a mage with a active ward will render the fireball harmless, but a fireball to the ground close to the mage ignores the ward and does full damage.
If you are being attacked by the guards you can yield by sheathing your weapon and they will stop attacking and try to arrest you instead
After serving time in jail/paying off the bounty you can go back in side the jail and retrieve your stolen items. They are usually in chests some where, marked as Prisoner Evidence.
READ THIS IF UR PLAYING A MAGE Tons of great stuff on destruction, too long to post them all so just read through this. Thanks evilnight!
If enemy preforms a summon while fighting you killing the summoner 1st will automatically kill off the summoned creature
Swords swing faster then axes and axes swing faster then maces.
Eating an ingredient will only unlock its first effect, to discover more effects you need to start crafting potions
You can pickpocket the gold back after you spent it on training
Giving gold to a beggar will put a blessing on you that increases your speech skill by 10
Map with all skyrim locations
When you break a pick or turn the lock when it's in the wrong position, the pick will "flick" towards the correct position. Paying attention to that should save a lot of picks.
The experience towards speechcraft you gain from trading with merchants is based on the value. However, you only gain experience for that one unit.
Dragon claws, have the code to open doors on the back of the item look at it in your inventory by zooming in.

217. "Finally started my epic quest last week... cant put the game down"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Not too much has changed since Oblivion, but I cant complain- that game was nearly flawless.

The guilds seem much more fleshed out this time- so far I've dabbled with Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood.

I hate that I cant fast travel unless I've visited the location before. I guess Bethesda wants to make sure you explore and appreciate just how truly massive Skyrim is, but its a little frustrating at times.

I like how you gain experience and level up by performing that action, but dammit you kinda suck at everything for a while.

Oblivion is my favorite game ever, so needless to say im obsessed with Skyrim.... time will tell if it surpasses Oblivion in my book.

218. "check the list i posted above."
In response to Reply # 217


  

          

apparently you can fast travel to places you haven't been (but i guess you can see the icon if you read books or learn from questgivers) by hitting up the carriage outside of the main towns and villages.

>Oblivion in my book.

I specifically bought it and started in March just so I can have it finished by the time it was released.

Well that's happened. I really....REALLY don't need this time sync.

Plus my list of games is growing....I still aint played Red dead or batman 1 or 2.

And I want Battlefield 3.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

i normally start as a Redguard but I wanted a new experience.

Still getting used to not being able to go Toe to Toe with enemies...but my Guard for killing my 1st dragon is serving as the buffer I need.

This should be fun.

229. "Soon, I might try an alchemy/enchanting reinforcement loop"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Make a bunch of alchemy-raising gear, use it to make enchanting potions, use em to make stronger alchemy gear, make better enchanting potions, etc.


Seems like it'd be expensive & really incremental, though, even with relevant perks in both fields. Anyone tried it yet?

235. "Along those lines, Sneak seems to be the most "valuable" enchant"
In response to Reply # 232


  

          

I've been able to boost the shit out of my enchanting skill by buying Grands from the vendors in Windhelm, putting Sneak on rings/necklaces, then selling em back for almost as much as I spent. It's like unlimited training, for $ that doesn't even matter.
