I have found this mask by accident, instant fav and upgraded it to Legendary.
As for the mask of Konahrik: When the wearer is low on health, there is a chance that the mask will knock back enemies, heal the wearer and any nearby allies, and grant a fire cloak for a brief time. The healing benefit will raise your restoration skill, and the fire cloak will aid your destruction skill.

It also has a 1% chance to summon a Dragon Preist to fight for you along with those effects.

I paid a Dark Elf to come along with me. 500 Gold for Ebony Mail worth 5000 Gold (which also looks badass)? Seems like a good deal to me. As long as Jenassa wasn't a particularly important character it seems to have paid off for me so far. Plus, you get the Blade of Sacrifice, which is pretty much average isn't it?

I don't know if this is another bug of many more in this game but here it goes. Alright so i married Aela the Huntress, and started Battle for Whiterun. OInce i started this quest Aela started running home, i ordered her to wait in the Palace of the Kings with Ulfric (stormcloaks) but she ignored it...well ok? Anyway, once i fast traveled to whiteruni saw her fighting along there, once we were finished she just standed there..i was going to the jarl for my completion, but once i completed this quest Aela just dissappeared! She's not in Breezehome nor Palace of the Kings, i've also tried to look in the Companions building but no luck. What the fuck is going on here? I'm quite pissed of by this.

I've tried to search this shit on Google but the only results were jokes about this, or saying this is a glitch...did any of you also had this problem? If so, how am i gonna fix this?

Update 1.4 patched the trick where you can instantly restock a merchant by saving, killing him, then reloading. I am saddened by this.

I'm a little concerned about the Skyrim DLC, I just don't see how they are going to top the brilliant storyline and immersive characters and world that the main campaign had.

Well, I haven't started the civil war thing, but I'm married to Aela, so I hope I don't get this problem.

So, is Dwarven scrap metal useful for anything? smelting? I'm guessing not, but I want to make sure.

You can make ingots out of it and craft dwarven armor and weapons.

In that case, I definitely have to go back to those ruins I went to for the College of Winterhold. Aela and I both used up out carrying capacity with all the cogs, gyros, gears, and the like. There's a side quest for one of the members of the college who wants that stuff, so I took what I could and put it all in my chest. He gives you a unique summon spell as a reward.

I finished the Blood on the Ice (name reminds me of Bathory) quest only to find that you have to complete either the Stormcloaks quest line or the Imperial Legion questline to be able to purchase Hjerim. dang.

I really want a falmer helmet because you can wear it while still having Krosis equipped, according to UESP. Then again, they also said I could equip a second amulet while weating the Gauldr Amulet, and that didn't work for me. I'm gonna head to a specific place on the map that is supposed to have lots of falmers and I hope at least one of them has a helmet. I fought a bunch of them in the Dwemer ruins I was just in, but none of them had one.

As well as the fact that there's a shitload of dwarven armour lying around, it wouldn't be hard to see what they used to wear.

I find it kinda shitty that the Dwemer were basically like Dunmer with beards. If you played Morrowind, you know what I'm saying. They should have been stocky midget people. Well, maybe they just used a Dunmer model because they didn't bother to make a model for the dude. Then, maybe, it could be some kind of a retcon if they ever decide to feature Dwemer in future titles.

I'm thinking of starting to play this again. It's been in my pile of 4 games that I keep next to my Xbox for... Before even New Year and I haven't touched it at all.

I want to play an Archer, but I don't think it'd be any good anywhere past the beginning of the game, can anyone give me some feedback?

All the mer people are types of elves, even the Orsimer. Meric races use the term "Dwemer," which translates to "deep," "deep-counseled," or "secretive" people. They are alternatively known as Dwarves, a term used by Imperials and possibly created by the giants, the Ehlnofey of the Velothi Mountains. I find it hard to believe that they wouldn't have a specific model for a character as unique as the only living Dwemer on Nirn.

Elder Scrolls takes a different take on many things. I like that they changed up Dwarves a bit.

They used a Dunmer model with facial hair for the one and only Dwemer character in Morrowind, who happened to be a ghost. I think it was just laziness on the part of the developers. I agree that they would most likely have their own type of model if they were a playable race in a game.

Also, I should have realized when I made the comment on how they should basically be really strong midgets that the armor they wore fits regular sized people, so that wouldn't make sense.

Also, I never realized that the orcs were mer.

And how cool would it be to see what the Maormer look like? I imagine them being amphibian like with vibrant, poly-chromatic skin. I'd love to see an Elder Scrolls game that takes place among the several southwest islands, lncluding among several others, Summerset Isle and Pyandonea. What about those "Coral Kingdoms" with the Sloads? Maybe it could even take place in the past, before Yokuda sank. And there could be Kothringi and Lilmothiit who moved west from Black Marsh. And Imga that moved west from Valenwood. unless that's implausible. I don't know. And you could fight the welwa and gheatus.

No way, dude. I use archery all the time. I'm deadly with that shit, now. But it's easy to have a character that excels in archery, destruction, one handed, and two handed all at once. My dude pretty much is super good at all of that.

Archery is one of the most powerful forms of attack in this game. Just make sure you put some effort into getting decent with a blade for those times when you get rushed. Or just learn how to sneak well and take the enemy out without ever entering combat.

I think archery is definitely the easiest way to complete the game, especially if you combine it with really good sneaking. I would progress through dungeons without entering battle until about the very end of them where there's 10 different people. Eventually you can get your sneak attack with archery to do 3x damage, and with a daedric bow, that's pretty frequently a one shot kill. The best part is that you can just pick people off from a distance and you don't even have to get hurt. Archery is definitely the way to go.

Keep your distance and use the bow and your offensive shouts after the fight started. If he's too fast to dodge (wearing steel armor you probably won't be able to avoid him for long) switch to your sword and use power attacks, you don't need to kill him just prove that you're a warrior worthy of entering Sovngarde so it shouldn't be too difficult.

Once again, Bethesda finds a way to make the Main Quest ending completely and utterly unsatisfying to the player, as Alduin is a complete and utter pushover to the point of making the ending of Fallout 3 look like Portal 2.

All you need to do is use Dragonrend to force him on the ground and circle strafe the poor lumbering lug as your three buddies wale on him from afar. However, this is pretty much the problem with all dragon encounters, least for me. Get them distracted and forced on the ground and just wale on them like no tomorrow.

What's worse is that when I've defeated The World Eater, the greatest evil Skyrim has ever faced, all I get is the equivalent to a pat on the back and a few passing comments of NPCs.

Woo-hoo.

At least all your progress isn't for not and you can continue on with the game, which I have to say, is pretty good if a bit overblown by critics and fans a like.

Definitely didn't deserve game of the year, but still good, not great, just good.

I will agree, the main quest is EXTREMELY lack luster compared to even Oblivion's. Hopefully, future DLC will expand on other lands...and on the bright side, at least you don't have to buy DLC in order to keep playing the game (Fallout 3...).

Working on a sword in the Creation Kit right now and I had to borrow other modder's resources (with permission of course). Hopefully it will be done soon!

I finally platinum'ed the game by doing the main storyline and finishing the thieves' guild. My playtime is around ~140 hours. I don't want to touch the game- or see another loading screen again. You'd understand if you tried to finish the guild.

A helpful bug i noticed, you can wear the Gauldur Amulet and another necklace at the same time, if you put it on before the other.
