Isn't that the last level in the game that you can reach? Damn, that must be awesome. How powerful are the enemies in the game to you now? Can you take them down with ease?

Magic isn't as OP compared to dragons, though my dual-weilding blades is very strong and can take them down in a few power attacks. Currently, I'm a heavy-armour, mage thief/assasin. I'm also playing on Novice which makes me wonder what Adept would play like.

Just played easily one of the coolest quests in any game. No spoilers, but has anyone been to the abandoned house quest in Markath? Creepiest/best quest ever.


Yea, I farm Anal Penguins. Do something about it.

Wanna know the best way to make money through legitimate gameplay?

Transmute Ore, shit turns Iron Ore into SIlver Ore, and then Silver Ore into Gold Ore.

The best place to do this would probably be outside Warmaidens in Whiterun, buy all the iron ore from the Blacksmith, go inside and buy all the iron ore from the Warmaidens shopkeep, turn these into gold ore. Turn the gold ore into gold ingots, turn the ingots into various amulets (personally, I am always overstocked on jewels) and then you can sell them to general stores and wait 48 hours.

If you're into enchanting you can probably make some mad good amulets and sell those for even more profit, and you'll probably keep a few since you'll sure have some good effects. All of this even gets up your smithing, speech, alteration and enchanting.

I wouldn't say that. All I ever use are either two handed weapons or fists and the dragon shouts don't do diddley to tougher enemies like dragons.

Although me and my brother play on Master difficulty, so nothing does diddley to tougher enemies like dragons.

Level cap is indeed 81.
Past level 50, however, leveling is much more slowly.

Awesome right? No matter what the quest is in Skyrim, I've constantly been blown away by how amazing and detailed they all are. Easily was one of the creepiest game quests of all time for me.

I wish there was some purpose to enemies yielding, rather than just giving you an opportunity to stab them to death without them fighting back.
Like, you'd think they would at least run away, rather than couching in front of you for 5 seconds before deciding to fight again.

But, I'd like it a lot if when they yielded, you had the option to just kill them, or you could make them pay you for their life, in gold or armor or weapons or whatever they had on them. Maybe you could force them into being companions, have a bandit turn on his/her own group and fight for their life with you. Maybe if you make the bandit chief yield, you gain control over the whole bandit clan and they become friendly, maybe they'll do stuff for you, mine stuff in a nearby cave, gather alchemy materials, stuff like that.

Get a wizard to yield and they teach you whatever spell they're using, if you don't already know it. Or train you in destruction/alteration/whatever.
Archers could train you in archery, etc.

Encountered my first wild Dragon. All was going well until he lost interest and decided to fly towards one of them giant camps. The good news was that he got, quite literally, raped by 3 mammoths and died within 5 seconds. The bad news was that the giants and mammoths then decided it was my fault that the dragon paid them a visit and decided to chase me.

I could have probably outrun them but I was already over-encumbered with a lot of crap I was going to sell.

Reloaded the save after being 2-shotted by a mammoth (Not fun) and this time the dragon just circled around me for a while and then flew off like a huge chicken...

Still incredibly fun! Although that companion guy who helps you for a quest kept bugging out for me. He'd be getting attacked by enemies and just stand there and take it.

When I first found that tome, I couldn't believe that's actually a spell they put in the game. Might as well be "Conjure Money"

Unless you saw the mammoths humping the dragon from the backside, I think you need to rephrase that statement sir.

Man it was fun in Oblivion when you spent hours placing shit around your house in cool places, to come home and find it had all de-spawned.

YES i was going to post something about this.. Best quest so far IMO haha.

No spoilers but its the first time in a video game iv actually felt guilty for doing something (I used the mace). Iv never really cared for my actions in a game, but for some reason i did during that quest, strange.. It made it a great an memorable quest for me though.

That honestly never happened to me even once. And I placed all kinds of shit around my house.

Which reminds me, I don't like the house in Solitude, not worth the money at all. Not enough containers, not enough places to put cool things, and that stupid housecarl has no idea who I am when I walk into my own house. She's always like "I hope you're not planning any trouble here"

I don't have any other houses though, since I like to keep all my stuff in one spot and it's a pain in the ass to move it, so I can't really say if any of the other houses are better.

this is the problem i have

i am a rich mofo and i could buy all these other houses. but, all of my shit, literally all of my 50 hours worth of hoarding is dumped into the chests/on the floor/cupboards of my quaint whiterun abode. it would be way too much hassle moving all of my stuff to another house because i immensely enjoy the convenience of having everything in one house.

also, i am level 39 nordic MAN. i was originally a WARRIOR MAN but that stopped after about 5 levels because heavy armour is too gay and i didn't want to perk it to degay it. so i became light armour stabby stab man with 15x backstab perk for l0lz. 100 in smithing, 80 in onehanded/conjuring. too good

today was a good day. i finished the college of winterhold quests. i FINALLY travelled to falkreath and found the dark brotherhood sanctuary. and i killed 3 dragon priests too.

my check list is as of so:

thieves guild - BUGGED THE FUCK OUT
companions - done
college of winterhold - done
dark bros - doing
stormcloaks - getting round to finishing
imperial - fuck those guys
forsworn - fuck them too
daedric shit - do if i find it; done molag, azure and boethiah
dragon priests - idk, i stab if i find
main quest - LOL NOPE

SPOILURS FOR THIEVES GUILD IN DIS POST.

I have no idea why I returned the skeleton key. The rewards are retarded, seriously. Oh, a once per day mayhem spell? A two minute once per day invisibility spell? A once per day drain life spell?

If I kept that fucking key I wouldn't have to deal with the bullshit known as broken lockpicks, but I couldn't help but finish the quest. God damnit all.

But with that said, Bethesda really went overboard with the once a day spells. Most are super overpowered, unlike in Oblivion, where they were pretty useless later on. God damnit Bethesda, find a balance!!!

Not if you're like me and became a werewolf at the first possible chance. It's actually really useful when you're overencumbered as I can turn into a wolf and run to the nearest city no matter how much weight I'm carrying.

Herping along through the forest right after the initial prisoner-escape sequence, oh cool, there's a saber tooth. Well, I've got several healthpotions and I'm wearing some decent heavy armor. Let's go put my warhammer through it's skull.

5 seconds later....
