My character is a Ranger type. Archery, light armour, 1 hand swords, and sneak.

 

Anyone else play like this?


that's pretty much my build too, every time, with every TES game. Also focus on alchemy, enchanting, and smithing. I'm noticing that I like archery more as I use it more, especially in dungeons and wilderness where you can sneak up. I like being an archer assassin, poising the arrow for a 1 shot kill.


my first go through I had exactly this.

got a little boring by the end as I was doing over 400 damage with every shot of the bow!

This time I'm total magic-user. Completely different style of play so the game's very interesting again
What's your focus? Conjugation? Phone Post

Initial go through was heavy armour war hammer bezerker. This time I'm enchanted glass armour archer with dual glass swords. Armour is up over 1100 and bow does over 500. I'm a fricken sniper! Completely changed the game and made it much more enjoyable Phone Post

I'm replaying as a destruction mage, light armor. I can rape anything one on one but have problems with multiple enemies. I have zero defense.

Does anyone else feel like they sometimes get stuck in a loop in Skyrim, doing the same things over and over? Especially with Alchemy, I tend to do this:

Run to each alchemist's shop in each city, stealing everything that's out and buying useful ingredients. Once I get through them all, I sit down and craft a shit ton of potions, giving me plenty to sell. I then have to go back through each town, selling until each vendor is broke. Often by the time I get to this, they've restocked so I steal everything again.

Between the alchemy, and picking up random smithing/enchanting supplies and working through those, I've gone through the last 10 levels only doing 2 or 3 quests. I'm starting to think I should just skip all that stuff for a bit and go do some dungeon crawling/questing.

If you want more challenge there are mods to make it much harder

assuming you are on PC

Deadly Dragons and Duel - Combat Realism are two awesome mods that make it more difficult (and fun!)

I hear you, with each Elder Scrolls release, I've been VERY tempted to try to scrounge up enough money for a gaming laptop...I really need a new computer anyway, but just won't have the money for a couple months at least, and even then I might not be able to afford something for gaming.

I would LOVE playing with mods...I'm very specific about the games I play and wanting it my way...I would love mods that add more variety, new items and stuff especially. I'm not one of those power gamers who's so good at video games they need harder difficulty levels, but I do think a balanced economy is important.

Known bug with Hearthfire.

Also can break Vanilla homes like Breezehome. For some reason, I can never get the bedroom upgrade now.

Waiting on a mod to fix it I guess...

Armed to the Teeth is one of those essential aesthetic mods IMO.  Lets your model carry more than one weapon as it should be.

GOT was the only reason I started playing.

I had never even heard of the game but I needed another fix after season 2 ended, and Skyrim sounded pretty close.
