Enchantment(s)!

On my sword and board, I had 40% one-handed enchants on anything that would take them, then magic resistance (20%), then stamina enchants, and something like waterbreathing on my helmet (there aren't any good melee helmet enchants from what I saw).

Sword weapon enchants were Fiery Soul Trap and Fire damage.

The mage put Destruction Magicka cost reduction and elemental resists on everything. Free high level spells is hard to say no to.

I don't remember what I put on my melee character.

As a melee, I loaded up on one-hand damage+%.

I also added one enchantment of fire/shock resist+% each (no need for frost since I'm a Nord) then a total of +60% in magic resist.

Head and body have alteration/restoration spell cost-%.

Main weapon has fire damage and fiery soul trap. Ultimate Sword of Doom has fire/shock damage+31.

To once again point out how broken Enchanting is, I now have a full set of Dragonskin armor (upgraded to Legendary) with the following stats:

Body:
Destruction Spells cost 28% less to cast.
Destruction Spells cost 17% less to cast and Magicka regenerates 10% faster.

Head:
Destruction Spells cost 28% less to cast.
Magicka regenerates 70% faster.

Hands:
One-handed attacks do 45% more damage.
Carrying capacity increased by 42 points.

Boots:
One-handed attacks do 45% more damage.
Carrying capacity increased by 42 points.

Ring:
One-handed attacks do 45% more damage.
Destruction spells cost 28% less to cast

Necklace:
One handed attacks do 45% more damage.
Carrying capacity increased by 42 points.

Daedric Sword (142 base damage):
Absorb 22 points of Health.
If target dies within 11 seconds, fills a soul gem.


I don't recall the exact amount of armor rating per piece, but with the Light Armor perks tree filled, I have over 900 Armor rating. It's takes something serious to even hurt me at this point. Most stuff doesn't live long enough to even put a ding in my armor. I'm level 67 now and Ancient Dragons at that level are just about the only things that I have to be careful around, and even then, I can usually stun lock them by double casting Thunderstorm.

I did find a sword with Paralyze on it and disenchanted it, so I might redo my sword to add that on there. I don't really need the Soul Trap anymore. Somehow, whenever I make a new weapon with two enchantments on it, they don't lose enchantment, no matter how much I use them. I don't know if it's a glitch or if it's some game play mechanic I'm missing.

Since you have 100 enchanting, I'm guessing you picked up the perk that refills 5% of an enchantment every time you kill something, then forgot about it.

I didn't take that perk. I went straight up the middle to get double Enchantment, then moved on.

Some double-enchantments glitch so that they don't drain iirc.

Also for anybody who doesn't follow the steam trhead. Skyrim is on sale for $40.

Also also, does anybody have some good recommendations for mods, graphic or otherwise? I've installed a few but I want moar.

Currently running mods:

skyUI
enhanced night sky
no more blocky faces
detailed faces
enhanced blood

all found on skyrim nexus.

So, after a few days off for christmas, logged in tonight & decided to do a quest near whiterun. Fast traveled over to a closer location with lydia & see a dragon in the opposite direction. Travel over towards it, herding 3 deer on the way. Blood dragon lands & I hack it to death 2 handed. Get new word (disarm).

Continue back towards initial objective, then fast travel to closest location. It's now nightime, & I see something glooey off in the distance. Follow it, see headless horseman. Follow him, & that nasty old dragon I fought with the chick from the blades is tearing up some ****. In the middle of the ****, a dragon made of blones is crawling towards the other dragon. So I kill it.

COntinue back to original objective, find cave. Kill legion of vampires. Full capacity, back to whiterun to unload, about 25% progress made from fast travel point towards original objective.

A.D.D. thy name is skyrim.

man this game is addicting, at first i was a kinda throw my points everywhere. But I made a new character as a dedicated thief/assassin. I gotta say it is addicting waiting for that perfect time to strike, be it a pickpocket, a stealing act, a sniper shot or a backstab, man it awesome. Also I now hate Skyrim, It has taken over my PS3.

I got the blackswordsman's armor & dragnslayer mods, so my RPing as Guts from Berserk is now form fitting.

I didn't care about "gibbing" when Mazra was ******** about it earlier in the thread, but I now want my sword swings to include flying appendage animations.

I'm sure they'll be a mod for that shortly.

One of these days, I'll go back to Skyrim. "One of these days" translating to "when it's possible to play, with the fact that the latest patch pretty much broke my game." I'm one of the players who had a temporary fix to the lag, which someone returned way worse than ever later on. So until they release a patch to fix it, I can't really play.

Fortunately, I have TOR.

I went on a weird create-a-character binge last night, starting 3 different characters and taking them about as far as Riverwood before moving on. I guess I was only in the mood for the creation part of the experience. I get in odd, fickle phases like that sometimes.

That is my latest skyrim build. I hope it works.

Alchemy
Allows me to boost my enchanting for the most part, but also makes up for my weaker sides such as sneaking and melee combat

One hand
I took the perks here simply because I had some spare points I felt, that and combined with sneak it allows me the chance to get a good jump on stuff.

Archery
I like to open with an arrow to the knee!

Destruction
Primary damage I hope in fire, didn't feel flee effect was needed due to illusion.

Resto
Healing obviously for one the wards for two, combined with other passive effects from other trees I can get 100% magic absorb.

Alteration
A must since I am not taking any armor skills, for defense spells and most notably magicika absorb.

Illusion
the oh sh*t tree, if things get dicey I can drop a fear, or pacifiy, If I run in to a group of mobs I can get the drop on them and have them fight each other for a while.

Conjuration
Whats better then a flame wielding mage with bottomless MP 3 of them Flame Thralls baby.

Enchanting
To make casting sets and an Idle set, while it might not be needed entirely the foundation of the entire build comes down to this, with it I can build 100% mana free casting sets, I can build crazy mana regeneration sets, I can shore up skills in other areas.

Smithing
Sky Forge steel weapons and mage clothes

I think it will be a good build, going to be irritating changing gear as frequently as I will have to casting all of these spells. Either way it will be fun I think.

I took dunmer as race, dunno if the fire buff applies to the racial or not, either way it seemed the most balanced across the fields I needed it to be.

Fus ro dah. (i am addicted to this game wish FFXI was this fun again)

I keep wracking up bounties in places like Whiterun... huge bounties... for no reason at all. So I arrive in Whiterun, and I have the option to either go to jail or fight... so I go on a massive killing spree that ends with attempting to kill the Jarl, but he and all the other main characters in there cannot die... I "killed" them each about a dozen times before I got overrun with them and their guards. Makes me think of the first Rambo movie... I'd be fine if I just knew wtf I did to deserve such a huge bounty... I don't even steal anything.


Oh yea, and the Jarl's kids don't even take damage... they're completely invincible.

I went on a similar rampage in Solitude the first time I ever went there. All the kids are invincible. I was even playing tag with one of them while I slaughtered all those adults.

I do find it funny how many people RAGED about the fact that you couldn't kill children in the game, despite the fact that it was political suicide for Bethesda to make that an option, not to mention the ratings increase it would have caused.

A button to blip them out of existence might have been a good idea. Even though I haven't done it yet, I could see it being really weird and immersion-killing to destroy a whole village and still have them wandering around like nothing happened.

Three times I tried to complete the attack on Fort Sungaard. Three times the game froze (at completely different parts). I gave up.

Sometimes, QWOP is less frustrating than this game.
