What frustrates me most about the horse is it auto attacks. I hop off to fight whatever is attacking and the damn horse tries to help instead of galloping off. I've lost 2 horses to that kind of scenario.

It's damn nice when the enemies all focus on the horse rather than you though. I'm still enjoying it, though I may need to push forward with main story again... worried I'm going to have open-world fatigue.

found a tip yesterday,if you get i think 70% in speechcraft and then select the investor perk,you can go and see Lucan Valerius at Riverwood(the little village you visited right at the beginning of the game),and 'invest' 500 gold into his shop...he then turns that 500 gold,into 10,000 gold which he will always have,so you can sell 10k worth of crap to him and then come back in 48hrs and he will have 10k more

I've seen that perk up there and really want to get to it, but my Speech is still in the low 40's despite selling all of my loot and smithed items to vendors.  Is there a better or faster way to raise that stat?  Any tips?

Hey I read (and verified) that if you want to zoom the camera in/out in 3rd person, click the right stick and hold, then use the left stick to zoom.

Nope. Sell loads of stuff. There's no speech mini-game this time around to vastly increase the speed of things. I also don't know if you have to sell items one at a time (like in all the prior games) to increase it faster verses selling in a group.

I did read somewhere that a guy was making a load of daggers to increase his Smithing and then selling them 1 by 1 to increase his speech,no idea if he was correct though

I may have to try that.  My smithing is already at 100, but when selling things I just sold them as stacks not really thinking about the fact that it might affect the Speech to do them all individually.

I gotta say one thing i am disappointed with,is the amount of perks we receive,sure it adds to you making sure you select the perk you want yet with some perks having ranks,that means there are over 250 perks to select

I am level 41,so,i have received 41 perks

Now take me,i had to put 9 perks into smithing just so i could create Daedric Armour...i didn't want my perks going in all the others but i had no choice if i wanted to create that armour,because Daedric Armour perk is not selectable until you have all the others

and then you have perks like Armsman in One Handed that is 5 ranks on its own,so that you do 20% more damage with each rank,that's 5 perks just for that one!!(I was putting these into this one early on in the game until i realised that a massive shortage of perks would be inevitable)

Sure there are some crap i don't want,but over all it means i'm fucked,means nothing if you get those skills to 100,you still need to stick perks in there

I think the system is better than in the Fallout games though.  towards the end of those games, it wouldn't be outside the realm of possibility to rank up your skills in everything to the max, and the actual perks were different enough that you wouldn't need to get all of them for a great build. 

has anyone noticed how much a difference each level in a weapon type affects damage?  from the looks of it, you get more from the perk tree and from smithing/finding better material weapons than from the skill itself.

Btw, it seems like they are most likely going to address the ps3 lag and the texture issue on 360 with a patch in the next week or two from what I've read. Hope so, i wanna play more!

I read a loading tip that talked about the horses of Skyrim being slow but hardy.  They should also add bloodthirsty and crazy.  Nord horses take on anything and everything, even dragons.  I've lost 3 horses to their unquenchable lust for battle. 

My first horse charged into a camp of necromancers, killed 2, and after the scrum I found him lying dead with ice shards sticking out of him.  My second horse made the mistake of charging a 2 handed orc bandit, supported by a mage (he charged while I was trying to scout their camp at night).  I found him dead by their campfire.  My last horse decided to chase an ice sabercat that was chasing a big spider (while I was scouting a fort).  By the time I caught up to the action both the sabercat and the spider were attcking my horse.  I go on foot now.  Stupid Nord horses.  At least deck them out in full armor if they're going to try and murder anything that pisses them off.

I actually thought about that too.  That would be a hilarious jab at themselves if their first free DLC was horse armor.  Equip the insane horses of Skyrim with suitable armor to prolong thier lives and protect your investment!

fought another Dragon Priest last night,and when the fight was over i grabbed the mask from him,but i also grabbed a knife that had crap stats,the knife was called Kahvozein's Fang,which is why i picked it up because it had a name(6dmg,5wgt,9val),when i got home i found i couldn't drop this 5lb dagger because it was a quest item...so i looked up the quest and i can't start the quest until my Alteration is 90,so that's gonna be in my inventory for most of the game now

so if you see it,make a note of it,but try not to pick it up right away if like me and your Alteration is one of your lowest skills

I will have to check that(drop everything i can and see if i have any weight),but other than that,why would they have a weight in the first place?

Speaking of this, I have dragon bones and dragon scales that are taking up tons of room.  I have no home and no place to put them.  Can I sell these now and still get stuff to make armor with later?

yeah,Dragons are plentiful in the game and you don't need that many to make an armour set,but the Dragon Armour does sell for a pretty penny,so it may be wise to make lots of Dragon Armour and sell it on later in the game

I bought a house in Whiterun pretty early on, so I think I only carried around bones and scales of one dragon.  Or more accurately, my housetharl carried them around.  icon_lol

Anyone else get jumped by a group of thugs, and then find a contract note from someone named Moira?  Holy hell these guys slaughtered me over and over again.  I finally had to turn the difficulty down to Novice to get by them.  I read this is someone in Whiterun that I maybe stole from, but I can't find her.  Is this a quest or just some random event?

I thought it was posted that your home could be robbed, is that correct?  If so, how do you protect those items you want to keep, but don't want to lug around?  Can you station your guard there, and if so I guess you can't bring them around exploring with you?

I like that the game goes after you for crossing people or factions.  I pissed off the Thalmar early in the game and have been encountering justicar execution teams.  They come in squads of 3 to 5, carrying notes stating that my character is extremely dangerous and must die.  So true.

My son ticked off someone enough for them to complete the dark sacrament and hire the dark brotherhood (that's what the note said that the dark brotherhood assassin was carrying).  He has no idea what he did. 

I just think that's awesome.  The game world is reacting to your actions.  I haven't run into Moira's hired thugs, but if I do, the Thalmar execution squads have me well prepared.

I am pretty sure quest items do not count against carry weight. I know the 25 pound dragonstone didn't.

I will have to check that(drop everything i can and see if i have any weight),but other than that,why would they have a weight in the first place?

Speaking of this, I have dragon bones and dragon scales that are taking up tons of room.  I have no home and no place to put them.  Can I sell these now and still get stuff to make armor with later?


yeah,Dragons are plentiful in the game and you don't need that many to make an armour set,but the Dragon Armour does sell for a pretty penny,so it may be wise to make lots of Dragon Armour and sell it on later in the game

What did you guys do with all the bones and scales you were stockpiling as you leveled?  That shizz is heavy!

I bought a house in Whiterun pretty early on, so I think I only carried around bones and scales of one dragon.  Or more accurately, my housetharl carried them around.  icon_lol

I thought it was posted that your home could be robbed, is that correct?  If so, how do you protect those items you want to keep, but don't want to lug around?  Can you station your guard there, and if so I guess you can't bring them around exploring with you?


yeah Lydia,a Follower i don't want(I don't use followers)stays in my bedroom forever eating my bread and cheese Tongue

and i am guessing i have about 100k worth of gear stashed in my house,i do know i have about 50 lots each of Dragon bone and plate,i have killed about 25 or so Dragons,and just dump what i loot in my house and then carry on

not really seen a need for much cash yet after buying and doing up my house(which cost about 7k),i do pay for some training though,and will probably be using most of the money i make from that investing tip on training,i did do some smithing to get it to 100 but the dagger ingredients were not that expensive

said it before,but this game is a million times easier for getting money than Morrowind and Oblivion was

Anyone else get jumped by a group of thugs, and then find a contract note from someone named Moira?  Holy hell these guys slaughtered me over and over again.  I finally had to turn the difficulty down to Novice to get by them.  I read this is someone in Whiterun that I maybe stole from, but I can't find her.  Is this a quest or just some random event?

Sounds like you're being haunted by the ghosts of Fallout 3. slywink


LOL,have you started the excellent 'A Night to remember' quest?....maybe,not finished it?.....ahh,i am so dying to tell you,LOL

I thought it was some kind of easter egg at first too smile  But those guys were seriously way above my level, taking out me and Lydia together with no problem.  And apparently Moira is actually some old lady in Whiterun.  I stole some things rather indiscriminately from a few places, so I guess the game took notice even if I wasn't caught red-handed.

Morrowind and Cyrodiil in Skyrim?

Quote
It seems Bethesda has painstakingly crafted a good deal more landmass than was necessary for their latest time sink. The poster traveled to the Southern-easternmost edge of Skyrim, Stendarr's Beacon, then made his way to a path that ends in an invisible wall at a stone archway to what would logically be Morrowind. 

Like any good PC player, he jumped into no-clip mode and kept on walking only to find that he was, as suspected, traveling through Morrowind, albeit a decreasingly textured, scaled down version of it. He made is way to Solstheim, an island to the north, as well as Vvardfell. From Morrowind he was able to reach Cyrodiil where he eventually found the Imperial City.

It's all pretty cool, but does it mean anything? The obvious guess would be that they've got plans for expansions.

i got to the big wooden gate myself that block off the edges of the map,and i have also hit the invisible walls(it tells you you can't go further)...but this is interesting,whether it really will be for expansions to play in areas of Morrowind and Imperial City I don't know,but it would be cool...but it wouldn't be 'Skyrim',if you get what i mean

My Dragons have seem to dry up for me.  Over two session of 2+ hours playing  I've yet to see anymore.   I have a few shouts I would like to unlock.  I am wondering if they stopped appearing because I stopped doing the main quest.  I'm level 28 will be a little perturbed if my game is bugged

Do you use fast travel much Soul?  I'm about your level and I swear it's like 4 out of 5 fast travels have a dragon at the other end.

Pug I try not to fast travel unless I am pressed for time or I just want to get a location without running into a random encounter.

Seriously I am starting to think I am bugged.  I'll push forward with the main quest once I am finished the Mage Guild quest line to see of that opens things up

I've found tons of dragons - I think I have like 5 Souls stockpiled for when I find a power worth unlocking. And I agree with Wonderpug - fast travel more (not to towns, but to areas). One tends to jump out of the woodwork every so often when I do.

I'll try fast traveling but the last dragon I killed fell through mountain side and I was unable to loot but still got the soul. I have three shouts I want to unlock freeze form, stop time and disarm

Imo get freeze first, I've had a lot of resists using disarm but have been able to freeze just about anything with that shout.
