I'm gonna stick with Sword and Shield for a little bit but from what I've played so far the shield is kinda pointless.... I might switch to Two-Handed weapons if it doesn't get any better. Phone Post

If you're in the legion, or rather you actually want to be a professional warrior - use a shield. If you're just ducking around, don't use it. It's pointless.

I keep trying to block but a lot of attacks are getting through (especially arrows), I'm guessing it's because I've just started the game again and my block skill is only like 25, lol Phone Post

theres a perk for blocking arrows as you level up your block skill.

disbeliever - There is a mod out for the PC that I love. I forget the name, but it adds in cold weather survival to the game. You can't just run around with no cloths on. Makings fires and dressing warm is key in snow.

Just adds another layer of awesome

Two mods I know that do this...

Frostfall:   http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/11163

Hypothermia:    http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/6745

 

I prefer Frostfall.  I love it when playing a Hunter type, or when starting out.  I use it to even turn off fast travel, so you have to plan all your expeditions ahead of time, can't just fast travel everywhere.  Incredibly immersive, particularly when combined with Eat/Drink/Sleep/Bathe type immersion mods.  

I also use the Ranger Cabin mod so I can have little stashes all around, since I can't just fast-travel back to my "base" whenever I'm overloaded, or need to recuperate.  

"Oh you are going to the Shrine of Azura?  Best put on some furs, and take some wood with you for campfires, and better build a tent, with some bedrolls, etc."

Once I get up in levels though, around level 60, I turn fast travel back on....cause who wants to have to run around for all the Brotherhood quests, or Thieves Guild heists...fast travel pretty much necessary at that point.

Also, alternate mount mods are awesome.

I'm currently riding a giant spider.

Although I think I'm going to make a Bear-riding Barbarian pretty soon.

There's a mod for showering, and shitting - and Im assuming fucking as well. There has to be an eating mod, otherwise the shitting mod just wouldn't make sense.

There are tons of eating/drinking mods. Just go with what level of customization/immersion is for you.

PLENTY of sex mods out there.

Hadn't seen a shitting mod....not sure I need to. Don't think that level of immersion is quite necessary. Fighting dragon...your attacks do half damage because you are sporting a turtle-head and gotta take a shit....lol.

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

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.
