Similar to the way you can get to Skyrim in Oblivion but nothing's there.

It's interesting to think that Bethesda might be thinking ahead to potential expansions that open everything up.

Now I just need a mod that makes dragonplate not ugly.

The very reason I'm still lugging around in Orc Armour; it just looks way better (and also fits the character concept more).

My shadow/stealth Khajit runs around in Ebony Mail. Not as good as dragon leather but way more fitting for what I do.

Besides, the whole play styles about not getting hit anyway so don't really care about my armor rating so much.


On another note, I thought Todd Howard was bullshitting when he said the game played better with a control.

Honestly? I had a lot more fun playing the game with my Logitech F310 control than I did with my Keyboard and mouse. Which surprised me immensely.

Barring one exception of course, its definitely a ***** to aim an arrow using a gamepad. The irony here is that my second playthrough has been nothing but using a bow with very minimal melee combat.

This does add another level of difficulty though and since I'm playing on master I figured I'de just play with the handicap to make the game artificially harder.

Melee combat though, is definitely a lot better with a game pad.

I do miss auto run though.
