Hmm if you have a wive with a shop who also is a vendor follower can you sell things to her in a dungeon?

Btw there is one thing I hate about skyrim, when he chooses the wrong dialog option. If I choose something with the mouse I want to choose the thing I actually clicked on and if I choose something with the keys the position of the mouse shouldn't matter. 7000 down the drain because he thought I wanted to pay my bounty instead of choosing to fight or rather choosing to continue doing whatever I was doing while the guards pathetically flail at me.(It might be a good idea to exclude guards from level locking.) Well that and that essential npcs still act as witnesses, I think bringing them to their knees should simply lead to instant amnesia.

Ysolda isn't a questing companion. I don't know if this is the case, but I suspect that if a spouse has one gameplay benefit they don't have the others.

Goldstein wrote:Vaniver, you mentioned that Speech was really easy to level - is that through grinding alchemy? The 'merchant' character I'm playing has two skills that I consider important; smithing and speech. His smithing is nearly 60, but his speech is about 27 and I'm having a hell of a time levelling it.
Speech depends on the value of transactions, I believe, just like pickpocket depends on the value of items created. (Also, alchemy xp gain depends on the value of potions created.) In order to level it effectively I think you need to either pick up alchemy or adventuring (of which the first sounds much more appropriate to your char).

Marriage NPC benefits here.

Steel Plate Armor is nice for leveling and making some profit while doing it - the key is to also improve it at the crafting table and you can easily make a nice profit, even with low speech skills / haggle items. As soon as you can improve it to "Legendary" the amount of gold npcs are willing to pay for it go up pretty quickly, and the materials are easy to get from smithing vendors.

As I said before, every item gives equal xp for smithing, and improving the item gives half that. So an iron dagger gives just as much xp as an ebony plate, despite costing only 1 iron ingot and 1 leather strip. So, just buy up every iron ingot and ore, and every leather and strip, and make nothing but iron daggers and leather bracers until 100 smith. Then, make all the legendary armor your perks let you.

And then use the alchemy-enchanting loop to boost your smithing all the way up to 600-something and upgrade your sword to do like 250 damage and make your armor total like 1200.

So in one of the Imperial Legion missions, I killed a Stormcloak courier in a tavern and some random dude jumped in to help them. Afterwards, I looted his corpse for... a Blades sword. Wtf?

I remember seeing that guy with that sword (though I killed the courier out in the wilderness, where there would be no witnesses). I imagine there's some explanation, but I haven't found it yet.

I married Ysolda also, but she seems to have disappeared from my house in Whiterun.

I dislike the way the smithing tree is laid out. I am wearing light armor, but I still need to work all the way through the heavy armor side if I want to improve the better weapons (Ebony and Daedric). It probably should have been broken into Armor/Weapons or something.

I've also found I have no need for any more improvements in the Light armor tree since I'm practically at the Cap for it (though that was improving my Dragonscale armor with three pieces of blacksmithing gear and a +50% blacksmith potion). The only problem I have with it is that I didn't even have to do anything for that. I found all 3 pieces of blacksmithing gear and the potion. I was intentionally keeping enchanting and alchemy low so I didn't break the game too wide open, but the fact you can find those pieces/potions doesn't really help things. I figure I'm going to finish the main quest soon and then start a magic user with maybe one or two of the improved magic tweaks I've seen (notably the ones that add some damage scaling to the perks to reduce costs). I'll probably play it on Master to see how it feels. This currently playthrough was my Dark Brotherhood/Companions and part of the thieves guild playthrough. I suppose I'll do the College, Bards and the rest of the thieves guild next time.

When you enchant items, you can change the name. (Poor substitute, but still an option.)

So I started a Khajiit Thief/Archer/Warrior but I am finding that 2 of those 3 aren't really useful. Maybe yall can help me.

First is, I'm guessing its because I am still low level, but I can't sneak around anything. The best I can do is get a long bowshot away and stay crouched so that I can barely see something and remain "hidden". Then, even though I am hidden, once I take my bowshot, and am still hidden afterwards my target runs right towards me. So at most I can get is 2 shots off maybe 3 if they are really far off. So being an archer doesn't seem practical. Also, the damage is kinda low.

As for stealing...again, maybe I'm just not sneaky enough yet, but I cant pick anybodies pocket. Do I need to try at night more when they are sleeping?

Because archery is failing for me I also beat things when they get in melee range, but I cant decide on what I want to use when doing that. Since I was going with the whole thief thing, I thought of either dual wielding knives or since I am a Khajiit, using fists for now, but I dont really do as much damage as if I just take a 2 hander and crush something, so whats the advantage of dual wielding light weapons versus just a big 2 hander? I also wanted to use light armor, but again, other than carrying weight, whats the advantage of using light vs heavy armor?

I have the exact same combo, just hit 19 with it. The winning move is something like this:

1) Pick pocket a nonessential NPC in Riverwood, get caught until they hire thugs to follow you around.
2) Take the cart to Riften, wait inside a wilderness cabin or cave until it is fully dark (20:00)
3) Aggro the thugs by shooting them from in sneak. After the first shot, just stand stock still until they locate you.
4) Sprint through the forest, hide behind a rock until they de-aggro.
5) Repeat 3 and 4 until all of them are dead.

Each sneak attack, and the time they take to find you, will level your sneak abilities. Two nights of this plus a couple dungeon crawls will put you at 60+ skill.

In virtue of having 60+ skill you can take perks that increase the damage done by sneak attacks, which becomes brutal. Additionally they locate you after *more* shots are fired, such that 5 arrows are enough to kill and you get 6 shots off if you're not overly hasty.

Pickpocket should have a % chance to steal given items. Take the first perk in it when you level, pick light objects, and always save before you go to steal.

2x daggers should be your stealth weapon because of the 15x stealth crit from perks, going to 30% with a certain piece of gear
Spoiler:
Dark Brotherhood gloves


You should be in light armour because you make less noise wearing it and are thus harder to detect.

Ahh, ok. So what I want to do is possible and being level 3 is my problem. Got it!

"Cart to Riften": I was only in Riverwood for a little while, doing that quest with the claw, but where is this, or how do I find said cart?

Do the quest chain to talk to the Jarl of Whiterun or Whitehaven or WhiteIfuckingforgetEvenThoughILiveThere. Outside Whitehaven or Whiterun or whatever, there's a cart service. For 20-50 gold, depending on the destination, the Cart will take you to any of the major cities, of which Riften is included. Whoever you escaped with should have said to go talk to their parents - in the case of the Imperials, the Blacksmith, but the Stormcloak side has a similar thing with.. someone in town. Hell if I know.

Alternately, follow the road from town North, take the left road at the fork across the bridge, and walk. You'll pass the cart eventually. And see a giant - but it's cool, the Companions will take it down.



I also wish the Companions were... I dunno, a little better written at first? I basically ignored them completely until about level 25 or so... Why would I want to join a bunch of goddamn meat-headed morons who think smacking shit with a hammer is awesome? Talking to them about the Companions did nothing to make it seem anything more than a Frat of idiotic meat-heads, so I just ignored them. I finally said fuck it, joined them at 25 or so and did a couple of quests and HOLY FUCK WHY THE HELL DIDN'T YOU ASSHOLES MENTION THAT, I'D HAVE FUCKING JOINED ALREADY YOU PEOPLE ARE AWESOME!

Spoiler:
I do wish, though, that in the reveal, when Farkas asks you if you're afraid or whatever, and the responses were all "Oh, scary!" or "Whoa, what, wait, who? Are you.. a werewolf?" and not.. "Holy fuck, why the hell didn't you people tell me you were so awesome and cool? And I thought you were all stupid meat-heads."
...though granted, they kinda are all stupid meat-heads.

Anyway, Archery is goddamn awesome, but.... don't ignore your backup weapon. While I primarily use archery and primarily take things down in 1-2 shots with some of the Bigger Nasties taking 3... I've been in a few fights where due to the terrain or armor or what have you, my 60+ sneak and 60+ archery weren't enough to take down the bastards before I got steamrolled, provoking a reload and a use of... alternative tactics*... Were I better at one-handed and maybe block, or Destruction magic or something, I could probably have handled it.



*Alternative Tactics = Find a cliffside and Fus Ro Dah the bastard(s) off it. Did that in the Companion Quest to recover the stolen Dwarven Mace or whatever.. killed off everyone in the fort, except the Bandit Commander who didn't aggro on me for some reason or another.. I climb the tower and am still on the slope when I hear him talk.. look up, see him above me with nothing beyond him but sky.. as he's saying "So you're the one who killed my wolves" I give him a flying lesson.

...

Took me 20 minutes to find his body.

Played like crazy on my sisters 360 over the holiday. Had tons of fun with it, until yesterday. I became a vampire, but didn't know you had to feed. So now my save is about 3 hours away from becoming blood starved so I get attacked on sight. The only people I can find that are asleep are in the mages guild, and I don't want to piss them off(or kill a magic trainer). Tried going to other towns, but can't get past the guards. So I guess the solution is wander the wilderness until I find an isolated house, wait until night, then sneak in and feed.

Sexytalon covered the cart, but it might be worthwhile saying why Riften. Riften is surrounded by beech forests with little in the way of aggressive beasts, so you have a clear path to run away and little risk of aggroing other things whilst running. There are also occasional tors and outcrops to duck behind to break line-of-sight.

I chose to become a werewolf so I frequently get comments from townspeople about looking sick or whatever. You don't get restful sleep as a werewolf so I'm not sure how to change that.
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

But I don't really want to be. I've never done the vampirism route before, and want to see if it's cool. It is so far. But can I be cured at this point without being attacked on sight?

Hmm. I don't really know. I got vampirism and let it go to stage 2 before I decided to cure it. I think once you hit 3 or 4 you start getting attacked on sight, and that makes it a lot harder to cure. If I were a vampire I would try to keep it at stage 1 or 2, because getting attacked on sight in everytown just seems like too big of a loss of gameplay. I mean, what the hell do you do then? Go through dungeons without making any human contact? Just doesn't seem that fun for me, but if you enjoy it I guess go for it.

It's a power-tradeoff. Generally speaking, the hungrier you are, the stronger you are.. which doesn't make sense in the context of biology, but makes perfect sense in the context of a vijda game - You trade the ability to interact with the NPCs of the world for the ability to kill them all with the wave of your hand.

.... not quite that dramatic, but you get the idea. 100% immunity to frost, the ability to become invisible for 180 seconds, a 5 HP per second drain spell for 15 mana, can animate damn near anything to fight for you...

But looks more like Oblivion in that there aren't any Vampire clans or quests, as opposed to earlier games which did have Vampire-only quests.

I've always been really disappointed with how Oblivion (and now Skyrim) handled Vampirism. Maybe one of the DLCs will be factions for Werewolves and Vampires, with corresponding quest chains.

No, being a werewolf makes you immune to all diseases, including vampirism.

Speaking of werewolves, I totally ate some guy's head last night. Ripped right off his body with just my jaws, helmet and all. The other two guys he was with turned tail and ran.
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

I don't think there's anything stopping you from being a vampire and getting turned into a werewolf though (because becoming a werewolf isn't done using a disease).

Transforming (the first time) cures all diseases on you, including vampirism.

No. If that was possible, you would ruin reality for all the 12-20 year old females who are in love with Twilight. They would go on a murderous rampage through America until coming upon Bethesda Softworks and utterly destroy the TES series with the "Unholy Writ of Twilight" spell.

That is the real reason you can't become a Vampire and a Werewolf. Blame Twilight.

Because nothing has a right to look that beautiful yet deadly, and because illusion, alteration, and conjuration are only viable for a pure mage?

But (I don't know much about vampirism in skyrim so this is based on my knowledge of what it was like in oblivion), isn't it only treated as a disease for the first X days before you become a proper vampire? After that isn't it just a semi-permanent set of buffs and powers? If not, then doesn't that mean that you can be cured of vampirism simply by praying at one of the divines' shrines?

I'm actually combining magic with using a sword. The sword doesn't come into play that much...until I'm almost out of magicka. Then it's time to cast Stoneflesh and wade hacking my Absorb Magicka sword while the enemies are distracted by my Atronarch/ follower.

You don't do that much damage but it allows you to get back into spell slinging that much faster. It's probably sub-optimal but it is fun!

Magicka is irrelevant once you have 100 enchant and free master level destruction spells. Gets kind of meh at that point, so I'm just going with Dawnbreaker backed up with paralyze and healing magic. Will eventually create a Sword of Obliteration; Daedric sword made with bounce-boosted enchants and smith for 500 lightning/fire damage each strike.

When you enchant items, you can change the name. (Poor substitute, but still an option.)

...right, I'm learning to mod. As SOON as the editor is released :P

You know what's sub-optimal? Archery+magic. But it's fun.
