Just a couple of hints/tricks for people who want to level up their magic skills

-A good way to level up destruction is to get a spell that conjures up an ally to fight with you, like Conjure Flame Atronach, then use your destruction spells to kill it. Rinse and repeat. This might work with one-handed and two-handed weapons also, but I have not tested that.

- For Illusion, get the spell Muffle, and just cast it over and over. It lets you move more quietly.

-For Alteration, get the spell Transmute, then go to all the blacksmith shops and traders in skyrim and buy all the iron ore you can. Transmute will turn the iron ore to silver ore, and can turn the silver ore to gold ore. Then you can smelt the gold ore to gold ingots and resell. Gives you money and helps level you up at the same time :)

Anyone else have any tricks/hints they'd like to share?

If you're working on smithing, you can either do nothing but leather bracers for free training (turn pelts from animals into leather, turn some of the leather into leather strips, and use those to make bracers) or just buy iron and make iron daggers. I got all the way to 100 smithing using a combination of the two.

PVP is a question with no single right answer, but a lot of wrong ones.

but I must ask, "huge" as in huge or "huge" as in "HOLY MOLLY DID YOU JUST PUT AN ENTIRE COUNTRY IN THERE??"



honestly I don't think any gamer has a real idea of how big a country is.

even all of world of war craft is apparently if in real life the size of rhode island.

which is a 2 day walk across. which is pretty big for an mmo. So we'll see if a game can someday really get that big of a world into it.




well other than with cheap gimmicks, like arcanium.



Some years ago there was a game called "Wurm" that claimed to be really big but have not checked this out myself.

Bring back DEEEEP Space!

ooh for i have sinned , i ve been neglecting eve , except for skills and duelling the pos

I ve been playing it almost constantly , very immersive never played any of the elder scrolls before and it is a grand game world
been trying several characterstype and i really like the system simple but beautiful and i think balanced
only the UI and key control is a bit of a let down , the game was obvious intended for a console first , pc later
Anyway i got abput 4 different characters running around all about lvl 10 to 14 and i am amased at the quantity of things to do and number of sites you find around

there are indeed some bugs in there , running around with a arrow in your butt for hours is one, but apparantly they will release a patch this month

All i can say tthis game is verry addictive

well worth the money

I do not agree with what you are saying , but i will defend to the death your right to say it...... Voltaire

Why would you want to do that? If shes dead her corpse comes to your wedding and ruins it. Most hilarious bug so far.

That's the corpse of an elf. You can see Lydia walking around quite alive.

Funny video, but it's been edited, to probably not show him killing that guy at the wedding, causing everyone to act that way.

Oh, and i just have to share this.

Its a genuine bug, it works with any dead companion. Their corpses don't de spawn so when they "guests" come to the wedding there is a chance it will bring a dead one. The linked article is pretty funny though, still doesn't stop it from being a great game all the quirks are part of what makes an Elder Scrolls game great.

For the naysayers, or those that want an extra kick, please don't forget the wonderful guys at the NEXUS.

In this case www.skyrimnexus.com


Check these for Skyrim:


FXAA Post Process Injector



Enhanced Blood


Enhanced Night Sky (love this one at night, have a similar one for FO3)

And well, tons more, remember the community is always churning out more add ons (PC only, so sorry consolerros) , and the nexus is the Main culprit I still sometimes play FO3/Oblivion even this close to 2012 (until Skyrim of course)

The glowing ore mod is also somewhat helpful in locating mineable ore nodes. It makes the veins in the ore glow slightly so it's easily identifiable at night or in dark places.

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).

Love it. Yes it's clearly optimised for consoles however mods are coming out all the time to improve that. I have new water textures and blood textures. Improved detailing on the faces and a mod that decompresses them properly to smooth blocky chins and noses. It has also been mentioned but the night sky mod is winsauce.

The best mod was the one that allows the game to use more than 2 gigs of RAM. Before the mod the game would run out of memory and close without warning fairly frequently. Now with the mod it's only happened once.

My water looks pretteh naow

It's pretty good. The main story doesn't seem to be that great and it looks like you're more or less forced to play the good hero stereotype when doing it. I guess it will be a far shot from Morrowinds, but there's some hope it will be better than oblivions.
Anyway - I play TES games for the faction quests and with various characters to only cover a few of those at at time. Not going to touch the main story any further until I did all the faction quests.

Graphics look dated even on ultra settings (which perform really good though) and are no big improvement over oblivion, but I guess that's because of consoles.

My only real gripe would be the terrible console interface.

This really, and one of the main reasons I've held off on a purchase is all the 'interesting' extras I like about Collector versions (i.e. soundtrack, video) are separate purchases.

True story btw - saw the Collector box (was for Xbox release) and asked if there was an Xbox packaged in it. Guy said no, its just the dragon figurine... Shocked

Sorry, if you're going to package a figurine, please do it to tabletop game scale. Even then the dragon would be fairly large, but not so big that I thought it was a console package. P
