Its weird once the udea of starting fresh gets in your head.

Decide if you are or not. Then plan how the build will be and stick to that plan. So you dont end up wasting perk points and come out of it with a better character. Phone Post

at least use the skyrim perk calculator to plan out your build.

I love PC mods for this game.

 

I just downloaded a combat mod that makes the fighting 10x better. Plus all the mods that make the game look a lot better.

I think I have downloaded 30 mods so far that just improve the game in different ways and add more. Anyone else play on PC that use mods?

downloading it now...

as others have said, I'm wary of investing another huge number of hours into the game. By the end the loading times was really getting me down! And also combat had become pretty damn basic. I did such an epic amount of damage that nothing was a challenge. Kinda just went in anywhere with no strategy and just killed everything.

but to restart...

Loading times killed it for me. I don't really care where I left an apple in Riften when I'm cave crashing by Solitude. Phone Post

PC is the only way to go when it comes to Bethesda's big games. The high res terrain mods make it so I don't know if I could even play on a console. I have a spell mod that adds shitloads of new spells for my mages, a weapons mod that adds tons of new weapons that aren't out of place or over-powered. And two of the best mods out there, Cloaks for Skyrim and Winter is Coming. Nothing like my Nordic warrior wearing his cave bear cloak and hood.

Another reason for these games on PC, load times are not nearly as bad.

Just realized I've hardly touched the main quest. Didn't play for 6 months than bam for the last two weeks and just randomly did quests until the main.

Just got out of Blackreach ... How much more main quest to go? Phone Post

Yeah but how do you keep your PC from falling off the couch when you start jumping around?

Blackreach took me forever to find all those stupid glowing weeds, but the rest of the main questline is pretty short. Too short, imo.

This is my first TES game.

Is Solstheim really like Morrowind, with the same creatures and giant mushrooms? I like the DLC so far.

This is just my personal opinion but I think the main quest should be done before getting too off track with side quests. 

If you get to a high level before finishing the main quest then the final boss fight is anti-climatic because you are too strong.

You are pretty close to the end. After you get the elder scroll there is only a few more quests. It also depends how far you are with the civil war questline, because if you haven't finished that it adds an extra quest.

This time through I think I'm going to choose the Stormcloaks over Whiterun.

Just wondering, if I buy the house in Whiterun is it still mine if the Stormcloaks take over?

(Somewhat moot as I'm looking forward to Hearthfire so I can build my own...)

Stache - I'm afraid to start a new character now that I know how much there is to do. It's too big. I just can't put myself through that again.
Haha I have the same fear. Wanna start over but I remember just how massive this game is Phone Post

Yeah I just don't think I could take it emotionally.
Its honestly overwhelming Phone Post

I deleted my saves by accident...and I really want to get back into the game, but Im scared shitless...first off, Does the Oghma Infinium shit actually work? Second, is it really that taxing to start all over? 

 

...and third, would it make sense for a Nord Warrior to join the legion?

Fuck that Oghma Infinium cheat. Best part of the game is leveling up and choosing perks.

Starting over isn't difficult if you haven't already finished the game before. I started over after getting to level 48 with my Orc character. I had around 150 hours at that point. My second charcter, a Nord, has around 350. I don't think I want to do it a third time.

And yes a Nord can join the Legion. There are many Nords already there.

And if you dl Dragonborn there is a BlackBook quest that after you beat it you can spend a single dragonsoul to reset any of yur skill perk trees to zero and get the perks back to re spend as you choose. I think you may can do more than one, but not sure if you can go back after you exit the mission. I havent tried to go back but it was one of the Black books. It may be as simple as reading it again.

Ive started over about 12 times from lvl 45+. From shit characers to the Ps3 memory leak and even after it was fixed.

The recent patch + Dragonborn have really made it a new experience. Improved A.I. is tangible. I love the look and feel of the new armor.

I'm doing a Necromancer solo run. Illusion backbone with only undead summoning. Drive them to kill each other then raise the fallen to finish the others. Incredibly fun. It is difficult to keep from spending points with this build though. I had saved up 6 perk points while waiting for certain skills to rise. Phone Post

Really? I just started Dragonborn. I'll have a look at my skill trees. I know I wasted some perks somewhere.

I've been having fun with my new character. One nice thing about restarting is it goes really fast, especially early on. I mean it takes nothing at all to get to about level 10. I usually have a 'rule of thumb' that I try to buy 5 skill points from trainers every level (to use up some money, plus make leveling go faster), but I can't actually keep up with the early levels. By the time I have the money saved up I've already hit the next level.

Anyway, I'm building my house which is fun and a bit easier than I expected. I like that you can just build the basic house for cheap and have room for storage as soon as you purchase. And then from there you can keep building on.

Just starting the Dawnguard questline now....

Sounds fun!

I'm still not sure with direction to go with a new character, but yours sounds cool Phone Post

You can go back by reading the black book again and move the perks how you like. Cost a dragonsoul per perk, but worth it. No limit on the times you can do it as long as you have the dragonsouls to use. Waiting on Redguard or whatever they decide to name the next DLC.

I hit level 20 last night. Having a harder time than I remember coming up with gold, I felt like it was always pretty plentiful. But as I recall, lv 20 is the exact point where it becomes more readily available, as suddenly now I'll start finding glass weapons and armor all over the place, right?
