My first character had Krosis, was definitely my favourite of the masks. I loved that thing and looked very badass wearing it as well, I think I was only in full Elven gear, but it looked like an incredible match. I plan on getting it again on this character, but I'm only level 7 and at the beginning again :(


Yeah, whatever.

I have another question. Do any of the unique weapons (Mehrune's Razor, for example) or unique armor level with you? Like, does the damage power/defense power depend on what level you are when you get it? Or is it just what it is? If it's the latter, then that sucks.

not bad. That seems kind of an odd and arbitrary number, though. I wish it was 100.

hah. No way can you take on Krosis at that level. I was like level 21 when I fought him and even still, the only way I had a chance was to turn into a werewolf.

The first time I killed him I had to face the dragon, and him at the same time and I was in my 20s.
Didn't die once, just hid behind as many rocks as I could, and used my companion or whatever as bait... He died, but I came out victorious, so he didn't die in vain or anything...
First time I felt bad in a game though, he'd been with me since the beginning.

Most of the unique items have a set power I think. But it doesn't matter because it is the unique if enchantments of those items that you want. If you want the strongest weapons and armor values you would probably be best getting the Dragon armors and fully smithing them.

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.

That's what happened to me too. I was wandering around dragon roosts and after killing a dragon he appeared out of nowhere. I was about level 20 as well so killing him was no easy task. He was so damn fast that I could hardly hit him with my arrows. I had to sick Lydia on him and just hide away from all the action because I was in no condition to do too much damage to him. Luckily he got distracted by Lydia and stopped moving for long enough that I could shoot him. His mask is probably best though. Either that or the Masque of Clavicus Vile

I love the look of the mask of Clavicus Vile. I've never gotten it myself in Skyrim or Oblivion, but I watched my best friend play Oblivion with it.

So, I found a good map of Skyrim on Wikia. Thanks to this map, I'm gonna be on my way to a certain fort where there should be a sick bow that has over 40 points of damage power.

So what's this "great war" that people are talking about?

At 21 hours ago, Luke wrote: The first time I killed him I had to face the dragon, and him at the same time and I was in my 20s.

I had no problem with the dragon, but Krosis kicked my ass. I reloaded and made sure not to approach the word wall until I kiled the dragon, and I transformed into a werewolf before approaching it. That was much easier.

As for companions, I have Aela, who is essential, so there's no worries about her dying. Apparently, though, you can kill her. I was just messing around once and I decided to fight her (and reload, of course). I ended up chopping off her head.

I stumbled upon it without searching for it as well. I didn't know you could upgrade it.

The High Elves broke away from the Empire and forced the Wood Elves to fight against the Empire with them. The Elves nearly achieved victory, but the Empire won a last major battle and a truce was signed. The conditions of the treaty were very favorable toward the High Elves though and gave them power over the royal family. It is because of the terms of this war that the Stormcloaks seek to break away from the Empire.

Thank goodness I read a book about it early on in dragonsreach or I may have been lost for a while myself. Though it would be kind of silly to take sides in the civil war without looking into the events that have taken place in the years since the Oblivion crisis.

Well, after hearing that about the high elves, it seems both sides are kinda shitty. I still think I'm going with the empire because I don't want those Jarls to go to prison.

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?

No Jarls go to prison. But no matter what side you choose the Jarls that backed the losing side end up n exile.

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?

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.
