Words cannot express my opinion on this.
i went to dawnstar recently and the captain of the boat just shot up about 80 feet straight in the air and hung up there for about 5-10 seconds. he died when he fell back down.
weird stuff- must have been a glitch.
Good lord I did not know how quickly you could go up in smiting. I started another character to be a good character that resembles a paladin to balance out my other bad character.
I just got to Whiterun and I am all ready a level seven overall and all ready able to make elven armor.
The only glitch I really have run into was the Forsworn Conspiracy glitch where the guards would not arrest me. They just stood there so I took the money and ran.
my favorite bug I've seen is one I saw where a guy on a horse was flying around. Him and his horse would always be facing the same spot, but they were flying around it in circles going VERY far out and flying back changing elevation. I sat and watched it for a few minutes then lured a nearby mammoth over to kill them. Fun times.
So have anybody done a true mage character? After spending hours playing as my various characters I do not see how playing a pure mage can really work. I can see a mage mixed with like an archer type character being easier.
Conjuration and the destruction impact perk make a pure mage extremely deadly. I didn't even bother with the alteration mage armor stuff, as between restoration and conjuration a mage has more than enough defense.
Impact-perk dual-casted fireballs = death to all. And since fireball is probably the games most visually impressive spell, it could be quite fun. And the elemental wall spells were great for taking down extremely strong enemies. Just run from a giant while spraying a wall of flames in your wake. . .
Magicka regenerates as a % of total magicka always, so when choosing between +regeneration or +magicka enchantments, +magicka is always the way to go.
I did find myself wishing there were more spells that did something other than instant damage. I'd like to be able to curse an enemy for continual poison damage, instead of always using a weapon to apply a poison. And I didn't really like how the directional pad was used. Dedicate some other button to opening a quick-favorites menu--I'd rather use the d-pad as a series of hotkeys. It could become tedious.
You would miss out on a lot of quests, shops, and just random stuff to do. Realistically, you should be cut to pieces, but for fun they probably lessened reactions so people do not get frustrated.Spoiler:
It is why I was not a big fan of GTA4. It leaned more towards the realistic side with cell phones, friends, girlfriends, etc. and at some point I do not want realistic. That is why I liked SR2 much more then GTA4.
So has anyone opened up the entire map yet? I am very close, I think I only need to find 15 more places, which sounds like a lot but in this game is nothing.
I think I'm pretty close too. While playing, every time I've seen an undiscovered location on my radar I went there to unlock it.
How in the world do you buy Honeyside in Riften?
I have helped out three to four people in Riften and did the Jarl quest about the skooma dealers, but every time I talk to her there is nothing new for me to become Thane of Riften and buy the house.
Did you side with the storm cloaks or the imperials? They offered me the option to buy it, I just haven't done it yet. I sided with the storm cloaks and finished the Civil War quests, so Maven Black-Briar isn't the Jarl anymore. As far as help around Riften, I found Ice Wraith teeth for the elf that sells food, 10 fire salts for the forge (man this one was tough), two flawless sapphires (also tough) and a silver ingot for the jewelry maker, ingredients for the young girl at the alchemist shop, helped the lizard in the inn propose to his girlfriend, killed the old bag that runs the orphanage, and found Mjolls sword for her. I suspect that Mjolls sword might be the one holding you back because the lady mentioned Mjoll during the conversation.
I have not sided with either side yet.
I helped the Jarl's mage find her stuff, I helped the farmer get his bow back from the bandits, gave a begger some money, gave the Argonian a health potion so she didn't fired from the fishery, and have only found four fire salts. I will have to try the sword one.
Yeah, you are at the same point as me, only there was a lengthy conversation about being a helper of riften like mjoll and said she would make me thane if I purchased Honeyside. Are you sure it isn't in your miscellaneous objectives to purchase it from the steward? That's where it is for me.
ugh...I wish there weren't so many jobs to restore the thieves guild to glory. I also wish I realized how it worked earlier...I bet I'm 40 jobs in and still have a few to go because I didn't do them in the right city.
FINALLY finished the Thieves Guild quests and became Guild Master. The armor looks bad***.
