I can't say I thought as highly of it as you, though I definitely enjoyed it much more than Dawnguard and thought it was a pretty interesting story, if a little short.

Nothing is ever going to beat the Shivering Isles though.

Holy shit this game is nearly 2 years old.

So for someone who hasn't played this game since 2011 and thought it was absolute mindless, soulless grey monotonus sludgey bullshit and the worst Beth game to date (yet still got 1000G), would there be any point at all in getting Dragonborn or any chance it could change my mind? I'm sort of in the mood for this kind of thing but I might just try to play one of Morrowind's expansions instead.

Depends. Personally, I don't think that Dragonborn is that great. The dragon riding is lack luster and as last DLC, it's a bit disappointing and in my opinion by far not on the level that Shivering Isles for Oblivion was. I guess many mods were released while you didn't play this game, though many just revolve around improving the graphics - something that is not really needed.

I agree with your sentiments. The stunning visualy aside, my overall experience in Skyrim was surprisingly unimpressive. The world is huge, the side quests are good but at no point do I feel like I care about it - it doesn't manage to create NPC's that you care for and your decisions have no real impact on the game world, aside from if Stormcloaks or Imperials roam around the cities.

And don't get me started on the horrible Dark Brotherhood questline. Uff.

I can't say I thought as highly of it as you, though I definitely enjoyed it much more than Dawnguard and thought it was a pretty interesting story, if a little short.

Coincidentally, I finished Dragonborn two days ago and I don't think as highly of it either. It has some nice side quests, but I felt that the main quest line was quite disappointing. Too short and the antagonists didn't turn out to be all that interesting in the end.

I'm not so sure whether it's really that much better than Dawnguard. Dawnguard does add some very neat things to Skyrim (crossbows, new dragons, etc.) and it has a more satisfying main quest in my opinion.

Nothing is ever going to beat the Shivering Isles though.

I agree that Shivering Isles for Oblivion was a better expansion than any of Skyrim's DLC.

Ah, Dragonborn adds a new type of dragon too, and while I had a hard time riding dragons, I would say that's neater than crossbows.

Level 86. Not finished Dawnguard or Dragonborn. I am about to, if I wish, but I want to get all the perks before stepping up to Lord Hakron, Miraak and the Ebony Knight.

Well I liked the idea of riding dragons, but it just feels a bit useless. You can't really get anywhere and it's hard to dispatch of enemies.

I'm at level 79 myself and still playing frequently, even though I have done about every single quest in the game by now.

I am about to, if I wish, but I want to get all the perks before stepping up to Lord Hakron, Miraak and the Ebony Knight.

Have you defeated Karstaag yet?

I tried once, but it seems like you have almost no chance of success as a mage character.

It doesn't really matter, because even though some races are more adaptable to become certain classes with time even an orc can become a master wizard (orcs are usually heavy fighters btw).

But I guess thar Dunmers/Dark Elves is the best starter for new players. They start with the most varied skill set. Having the good fortune to good at fighting, magic and sneaking.

I see. To be honest, I might start as a Khajiit simply because I find it cool to play as a cat.

I had briefly started a new game a while back as a black and white Khajiit and was planning on being as evil as possible with him, but I never even did everything with my first character. I came up with a Khajiit name for him, too, after looking up a bit of info on their names and meanings and stuff.

Argonians are pretty cool, hardly get poisoned and can breath underwater.

Argonians don't have any poison resistance but they do have 50% disease resistance.

Aye, that's what I meant. Far too many times have I forgot to go to a shrine just to develop some disease, also getting Sanguinare Vampiris is fucking annoying.

Making my first post here, I'm rediscovering my skyrim addiction and now that there are DLCs, I wanna know which ones to get. Can anyone tell me what perks dawnguard offers for werewolves, in terms of the skills tree and quest lines?

What did you name him (if you remember)? As you did I also looked up Khajiit names and meanings and named my Khajiit character "Qa`Zhirr" which means if I remember correctly "unknown thief" or something. Thought it was fitting since the PC usually is a blank slate and nobody knows anything about him/her. Oh yeah, he was a thief also.

Krindo'Qadar. Almost definitely not correctly adhering to convention. Probably didn't take much looking into before coming up with it.

Some people are still playing it, and others have just begun playing. So especially for those that have just started playing the game, discussing it is actually very relevant.

This thread being alive again is making me want to replay the game but I'm burned out on it. It lasted significantly longer than almost every other game I've played but. Whenever I start a new game I get bored in an hour.

Yes and I thought your comment was one the 20%. Let us not get wrapped around this shall we. Your sarcasm wasn't as obvious as you thought and I should have known better than to think you were actually serious. We were both wrong and right. We were "wright".
