I only have Fus (as in one word) right now. At best all the enemies just momentarily twitch.

I just recently got the one involved with getting the Golden Claw for the merchant at the first town I was taken to and to get to it I had to walk past a stone table, with a locked (I think it was locked) chest next to it. Now, keep in mind I sneak pretty much everywhere. I get the word, turn around, and the table I had JUST FINISHED SNEAKING BY WITH NO PROBLEMS turns out to be a coffin and a **** zombie lunges at me. Edit: *And I don't mean just once. I walked around that thing like a dozen times looking for loot.* @#%^er I just looted your room and you napped through the whole thing, I just got a major spell/ability and you didn't even snore, but as I leave and take a step in some water and you're suddenly wanting to shove your two handed rusty giant sword up my orcish ***?!

@#%^ you.

Lol, yeah, that guy won't wake up until you have the word. Doesn't matter if you sneak or not.

And that is why every single corpse in the wall that looks like a Draugr eats an arrow in the face if I can't loot him (yet). :D

I'm gonna remake my character. I've only got a few hours into it (playing during the week is hard).

I found out that even if I steal **** when people can't see me, they will still try to get revenge. I think the old lady in the Inn in Riverwood found out I robbed her room while she was asleep. Hired thugs showed up at Winterhold and raped me rightly about 4 times in a row before I finally was able to defeat them. My level 3 Dark Elf Thief/Caster combo wasn't working out too well.

If undetected thievery makes people send these strong thugs and assassins after me... that kind of makes thievery not a good idea at low levels.

The dragon scale armor doesn't look QUITE as cool. Pretty spiky though.

Started spamming my way to 100 Smithing, I still need a few more levels, but it's going surprisingly quick. I've also taken to farming Giants for fun and profit. Dual casting Lighting Bolt is fairly damaging, and the stun affect from the Impact perk keeps them from catching up to me. They usually have a couple hundred gold and a fair amount of miscellaneous loot on them.

Go visit the Graybeards and fetch the horn. You'll get the other two parts of the shout. It's actually a fairly easy quest, the hardest part of it is climbing up to High Hrothgar. There are some fairly nasty critters on the steps.

Not sure if this is truly a bug or not, perhaps maybe limited to just myself I don't know.

Have a bow equipped, equip your arrows you want. Sell the arrows to the merchant and then go killing with your invisible never ending arrows.

Seems like a bug, but a good find. Are you sure they're the same arrows/damage, and not like 1 damage arrows? I think the companions use default arrows if they have no weapon equipped; could be the same kind of thing.

Anyone else notice that when you get shot by an arrow, sometimes it ends up in your inventory? I kept wondering where I was picking up these random iron and steel arrows from...

Having just re-read Berserk, I decided I'd roleplay Skyrim as Guts from Berserk.

So...at level 2 that consists of having a Big *** Greatsword & some cool armor I found in a mine just off the main road to the first town you go too. I like the game, it's gorgeous on my new rig, but I'm not loving 2 handed combat.

For all it's faults, Dead Island did first person combat really, really well. Skyrim? Pretty much a clone of Fallout 3/NV's melee combat, which is/was underwhelming.

Hoping for a mod to make melee more interesting.

If Lydia tells you she has a bad feeling about something, you may want to listen to her. Yesterday was the first time I had heard her say that and I sure got 1 shot by the guy we were creeping up on.

Oh.. And she's a freaking idiot! I told her to stay there while I tried to get a zombie to run into a trap that makes a spike door slam on them. I get it's attention and everything is going great until she decides to come running up and spring the trap. Killing me!

I got one of the dogs yesterday. Like 10 mins after getting it, I was already telling it to go home. Way to annoying and idiotic to be worth the trouble.

Ran into my first dragon priest last night (Krosis). Man, that guy packed a punch! Had to reload once because Vigilence died Smiley: glare Second time I managed to do just fine; used a level up bonus for an instant health-refill. The mask you get from him is amazing for rogues; 20% bonus to alchemy/archery/lockpicking. I didn't even know he was a dragon priest until I looked up information today; just thought he was a very tough undead mage. I guess there are 7 more out there guarding word walls... fun...

Wish they'd made melee combat more interesting (combo/chain system, for instance) and wish they'd implemented some kind of multi-layer damage system like that in Dead Island. It kind of sucks that stuff just falls over dead when you roast them in fire or chop them in the head with a big axe.

Seems a shame that a visually impressive game as Skyrim doesn't have more gibbing.

From what I've gathered, Skyrim uses the Havok engine, so it should be entirely possible for them to implement gibbing outside of fatalities. Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas used Havok as well and gibbing is present in those games.

Meh, I never have a problem with running low on arrows. I've been using the default arrows the entire time so far and I have at least 300.. and then I have at least 100-200 arrows of 5 other different types <.<;

That's also why you'll find your arrows on the things you kill if you've been turning them into pincushions. It's too bad they don't animate plucking an arrow out of yourself and firing it back. :D

Word of warning for people on PS3--the game doesn't seem to want to keep autosaves from different characters. Also, it deleted my old saves for the last character (I'm positive I didn't save over them). Apparently, this is a known issue--only known way to avoid it atm is to have different accounts for each character.

I've got two of the masks myself, Krosis and Morokei. Morokei gives a +100% mana regen, so it's pretty awesome for mages.

If you were wondering where to find Morokei, he's The second-to-last boss of the College at Winterhold quest line.

While combat isn't the main draw for me towards Elder Scrolls games, I do think they could have done more with it. At least the weapons have more of a feel than in Oblivion, but I don't see why they couldn't do something more with it. I'd like to see more fluid animations for swinging a weapon multiple times in a row.

I know it's a third person view game, but Dark Souls (and Demon's Souls before it) made a simplistic combat mechanic (light attack, heavy attack with a couple directional attacks) pretty enjoyable.

Has anyone collected all 8 yet? I have those two as well and I'm pretty sure I know where another one is--where Enthir's staff is.
