Argonians start out as great thieves, but their active ability makes them incredibly tanky.

Just got my Skyrim copy (too late I know) but anyways I started out as a Redguard which I mainly focus on melee stuff. Though I dunno which should I choose between Light and Heavy armor/weapons.

I'd say light if you think you'll be more into stealth, heavy if barge in.

In my first play I was running somewhat ranger-battle-mage which in the end was quite squishy even with HP level ups.

I keep modding these games with realistic lighting. I did play through the game once without any mods so adding stuff just adds a ton of replayability.

Can't believe AMD's integrated Radeon HD Graphics at 512MB DDR3 can handle it, though.

Tried to be a High Elf mage with a lot of points in destruction while still considering other options such as restoration and alteration.

Hmm, maybe getting it all is not too bad.

Well, right now I am doing a dual wield/alteration/restoration/illusion with no armor... I'll see how this works out on expert, I don't think I can even enjoy it if I die every 20 seconds on master. Also, getting NO health on lvlup.

Seriously, the random monster spawns when you fast travel are hilarious and surprising. Once I traveled, I saw a dragon and a giant. Another time I saw another dragon flying directly overhead.

When traveling, the matchups you find are really funny. Bandits versus dragons, and also frost trolls versus soldiers.

This game is awesome.

Default Re: Elder Scrolls V - Skyrim

So did anyone do the 'secret quest' in the college of winterhold ?
a quest puzzle that doesn't even appear in your journal.


warning ! big spoiler ahead


there's a hand somewhere in the midden,
and a book somewhere near it

you need to find rings (the book will help you with it), and put them on the hand,
then a dremora appears that can point you to a treasure



it's like a small puzzle, it was fun tho.

Yet another reason why I dislike Skyrim; so many design flaws.

I didn't touch Skyrim for about two months because game has more flaws Swiss cheese has holes and is boring (this is mostly because this is not a game, but a toy).
But yeah, I know everyone will defend it because it's pretty. >_>
Only reason why I'm glad I bought this game is because of CK.
Still, as release date of Diablo 3 is getting closer (a much better RPG with much better Collector's Edition which is actually worth buying, unlike Skyrim's), I think that even CK will join Skyrim.

Tanky thief? Design flaw.

I also bought it, played it for 200 hours, then got bored with it. What a terrible game.

When I was playing this, a body of a character I'm following during a rebellion, randomly spawned in front of me, and happened again another time.

Shit is too random, especially seeing a fucking dragon fight a fucking mudcrab.

Just pointing out the irony in his post. I've seen it many times before -- people complaining about the how the game is less interesting after 40+ hours.

We call that looking for something "fun" in the game. I play oblivion(skyrim sucks so I just got back to oblivion, guards don't talk to me, they just go rambo like and kill me straight no, no more asking for fine or being put in jail, or was that just a bug?) for hours just searching for deers and wolves, trying to kill them with my bow. The game isn't fun as how some thought it would be, but we do find ways to go around it, and in the end, it's still not enough, so we look for other ways to have fun in the game again(like, you know, do quests or buy a house and decorate it with loots or kill a guard and run as fast as you can), until we've tried everything the game has to offer(even transgender sex quest mods if there is one in existence), and that's the point where we'll say "game sucks, imba imba, boring, flawed, buggy, lack in content, etc". Srsly gaiz, just because elder scroll games are "too" open ended does it mean that the game can offer you "EVERYTHING".

Well, thank the modding community for that, they're doing their best to give things that they want in the game and share it with you guys, you know, like naked mods and cat ears.

ok,

since bethesda announced that the dawnguard dlc to be released in summer
source: http://www.bethblog.com/2012/05/01/dawnguard/

i thought i would give oblivion a try until then, since i never played it (skyrim was my first TES game)

i bought oblivion (Goty) on steam yesterday with the shivering isles/knights of the nine

is there anything that i should know before starting the game ?
anything that i'm used to in skyrim that's different in oblivion ?
should i play without the dlcs first ?

Well, there is a class system in oblivion, and once you choose a class, you basically have to only use your major skills if you want to be effective.

Plus in Oblivion, you can fast travel to all other cities on the map, which are already located (but not the other locations though).

And also, there are no dual casting and shit, you don't need to find Blessing Stones, and also it has a durability system (where your things break and shit).

Default Re: Elder Scrolls V - Skyrim

^Well...Oblivion is much more RPG than Skyrim. Oblivion is closer to the roots of the series (the roots of pretty much any true RPG is DnD) and Skyrim has lost numerous elements of full RPGs. I'm playing Oblivion for the first time now after having played almost 600 hours of Skyrim and you realise that the decisions you make with your characters really mean something. In Skyrim you can be pretty much the Master of Everything (like Thaddius Vent) whereas in Oblivion you have to choose a role (or create a custom one) at the start, which is how real the eponymous RPG, Dungeons and Dragons, works.

I like both and both have different advantages and disadvantages. Skyrim's advantage is that it's more quickly immersive and you can spend more time playing and less time staticising. The disadvantage of this is that you have less overall scope to improve your character (because there are fewer things you can actually do beyond the perks you pick). In Oblivion there is far more you can do with regards to character stats and improvements (even though there are no perks) and everything FEELS like a proper RPG.

I'm actually liking Oblivion almost as much as Skyrim, despite its (Oblivion's) well-known flaws but it's a different kettle 'o of fish to Skyrim. Imma leave you with the comment that the only thing better than playing a TES game is playing a TES game while listening to Blind Guardian (or playing Dota 2).

Have any of you tried playing Morrowind? Comparably I think Morrowind had so much more depth compared to Oblivion and Skyrim combined.

Atmosphere wise - Morrowind > Skyrim > Oblivion
Game mechanics - Skyrim -> Oblivion > Morrowind
Gameplay - Skyrim > Morrowind > Oblivion
Overall - Skyrim > Morrowind > Oblivion

Skyrim is just a better game because it's better with AI and general stuff, but Morrowind is truly classic Elder Scrolls. Oblivion feels a lot like generic western RPG

also, Skyrim is 33% off on Steam right now

For me Skyrim is the better Elder Scroll.
Morrowind was good.
Oblivion was for some reason confusing for me.
Cause i remember being lost, never finding anything and i couldn't get a grip of it for some odd reason :s.
Skyrim is beautiful, great story, awesome through and through.
I will surely miss playing it when Diablo 3 comes out haha xD.

All the questlines are short and not as epic as they were in the two previous games. Not only that, there weren't that much quests in Skyrim to begin with, compared to Morrowind of course.

Undoubtedly, Skyrim would definitely trump the others because of it's new engine and what not, but it didn't really bring that much to the table in terms of classic Elder Scrolls fun. It's like they dumbed it down A LOT.

Nonetheless, I enjoyed Skyrim, though no where as much as I enjoyed Morrowind.

in oblivion world adjust to your level. Enemies you encounter and items you find depend on your level wherever you go... so don't rush main quest unless all you want to fight for 90% of the game are scamps

I only played about an hour of Oblivion (the tutorial). Skyrim is my first entry into the series, and unfortunately I think this means I can never truly appreciate Morrowind because it will feel dated. Or so I am told.
Anyway, I loved Skyrim and exploring the world and history of Tamriel as a newcomer to the franchise.

I wanted to punch him in the face after that quest. I was severely pissed off that I couldn't put an arrow through Sanguine's face and watch him die.

Every time I see Sam now I have this overwhelming urge to pull out my currently equipped weapon and butcher him (even though he's classified as essential )

lol on that quest I already married to ysolda. She seems doesn't care at all.
Also persuasion save a lot of trouble.


Btw I meet sam at markath. IIRC he can be on any bar at the nine hold.
