P.S. get the Mace of Malag Bal or whatever its name is before you fight the Dragon Priests. It does a good amount of damage and drains their magic so after a few hits they can't really attack anymore.

Also, if you don't finish the quest with Barbas you can have a bad ass invincible dog that can one-shot most enemies follow you around. Considering you can enchant helmets or just use Dragon Masks with similar perks I'd much rather have Barbas than the mask of Clavacus Vile. Wish I didn't finish the quest. :/

Squirrel Guard - Hah ya I think its windhelm and winterhold in the northeast. I'm lvl 24 and just got blacksmithing to 80 so I'm set on gear. Anyone else just build iron daggers over and over? And threw a bunch in the box in my whiterun house so I can enchant them later. Phone Post

Haha, I think everyone does this.

Enchanting is a little tougher, one good way to do it though that isn't so boring it so get Azura's Star ( I used the Black Star version) and a weapon with a Soul Trap perk on it. Every time you kill an enemy fill it back up with Azura's Star immediately, it'll boost your enchanting skill.

I think you can only do it so many times per battle though. I did the Civil War plot and just sat in the middle of Solitude beating guys down as soon as they would spawn but eventually the star just stopped absorbing their souls.

I do both of these. Enchant sneak on bracers for big skill gains. Turn undead, paralyse, or absorb health for daggers.

Get the transmute alteration spell and turn iron ore to silver and gold for jewelry from all the pretty gems you find. Big skill gains off jewelry. Phone Post

xNate - Lol!

Best advice is to do one of the main group quests first.
The College, Thieves guild, Companions, these will give you a good set of gear to start and a ton of gold.

Personally I go thieves guild then college so I can grind enchanting. Its stupid easy with access to the college and the quantity of cheap soul gems. Phone Post
I went the warrior guilde type place in winterhold first since their quests as easy and werewolf stops from getting poisoned. Then thieves guild to dark brotherhood and mages guild last.

Easy way to get soul gems is spamming those dwemmer dungeons.

And depending on how you play, for easy hack and slash grab a merc somewhere to help you.

Also use the lovers perk that is found outside Markarth to help learn everything Phone Post

The_Pundits_Fluffer_III -

Been playing this game for about a week now. One of the first things I did was get my blacksmithing and enchanting up as much as quickly as possible.

Creates gear specifically to boost my blacksmithing up to insane levels and then created some super bad ass Daedric swords that do over 300 damage each with one-handed enchanting perks on my Dragon Bone armor.

 

Not so tough now, are you, you fucking Draugr Death Lords? Huh? You thought it was cute killing me with one fucking arrow? Whos' the bitch now? Bite the curb mother fucker.

Lol

Sneaking is also very effective when you can 3x damage with a bow if you sneak up on a guy then 6x for melee. I can walk up behind a giant while sneaking and one-shot him with my hand axe Phone Post

For Fuck Sakes.

It is not Sony's fault. It is Bethesda Game Studios Fault.

Sony will NOT approve DLC that makes the game WORSE.

Know your facts before you reveal your idiocy.


And you purchased it a second time? For XBOX? That's like saying to Home Land Security, "sure, I don't mind you invading my internal organs with rays that have not been studied to see the damage they do on a human body, just get me on the plane."

Bethesda Games Studios fucked Sony (like they have always done), and they fucked the Playstation owners by lying to them.

J'Zargo is really not a top three follower. If you really research it, he is actually terrible. Yeah, he may not hit a level cap, and he may be 100% in destruction, but he uses low level spells regardless.

I sacrificed that sum bitch to Boethiah. After all, he wanted to see if his scrolls would kill me.

Source? And don't give me some bullshit about the tweet Pete Hines (Public Relations officer from Bethesda) gave.

Bethesda made a public statement back on the 12th of November that they had been working with Sony to resolve the issues with the game and trying to solve DLC.

Do you know that Dawnguard was a 30 day exclusive to Xbox360, because Microsoft paid for it? Well, that is all fine and good. 30 days came and went, then another, then another. Then Hearthfire came out for Xbox...still no word about Sony DLC...

Now Xbox360 has Dragonborn DLC.

Bethesda Game Studios did not make the game for PS3 (they ported it over, they did not code for it), they made it for Xbox360. DLC will NOT work on PS3.

I use the broad from Riften that you get grimreaver for. She is a good brute for me to still play with people lol. I hit them with an arrow while sneaking then they think it was her and while they attack her i circle around and stab them in the back. Phone Post

Relax man. The internet is serious business huh? Obviously I didn't research it much, and that shows how much it concerned me.
That sucks that I'm an idiot now. Oh well, I'll adjust I'm sure.
I got the download code for 30 bucks for skyrim. Couldn't pass it up. And now I can enjoy the dlc I couldn't before.
I'm gonna go back to being blissfully ignorant now. Enjoy being pissy at strangers on the internet. Phone Post

Trent, I recently got an xbox, (starwars 320G) been playing sony forever. What do you think about the joystick locations on xbox?
It took some getting used to for me but I think I like it better cause I'm using the tip of my left thumb instead of the knuckle.
Also I like the layout of xbox live better than the playstation store. Xbox live is more... seemless maybe. Phone Post

I have a PS3 & Xbox, and I enjoy both for different games, but games like Skyrim are meant to run on a big rig PC.
I actually bought Skyrim on PS3 when it came out because I was still in the middle of building a new gaming PC.
When I finished and bought it for PC, it was like playing a different game.
To say nothing of the enormous mod community, the base game is like watching a movie on an old tube TV from the 50's versus the latest HD screen.

And this type of game is meant to be played with keyboard and mouse in my opinion.Phone Post

Moroth, game studios have had the PS3 development kit since the early 2000's.

If you do not know how to code for it, don't release a game on that platform.

Also, Skyrim wasn't coded for the PS3. It was ported over.

I pretty much already wrote what that article states a few pages back.

http://news.cnet.com/sony-ps3-is-hard-to-develop-for-on-purpose/

^This!

This is why on 90% of third-party AAA titles, the 360 is the main SKU, and then they port to PS3.

BIgger install base, and easier to code for. PS3 will always lag behind.

As such, my PS3 is for blu-rays and PS3-exclusive titles. If a game is on both, the 360 version is usually much better.

Regardless, any Bethesda open-world game needs to be bought on PC for all the awesome mods.
