    or Bosmer,

    dosent matter really the companions in Skyrim feel weak and lackluster

    they dont level with the player, so there weak in fights late game, *there level is determined by when you talk to them the first time.

    no Khajiits or Bosmer Elfs, but they do have Argonians haha

    companions lack backstory or any real sense of being special, unlike Fallout 3 / NV where each companion felt unique and special,

    hopefully the creation kit arrives soon so the above can be fixed up. none of this is game breaking and mods will fix it with relative ease.

    lol im 70 hours in beat the first main story line, working on the 2nd then its various extra content, probably gonna start my next playthrough soon,

    currently waiting again on construction set / creation kit, so i can edit 2 handed sword to a 1 handed sword and dual wield it, plan to make a specially enchanted 2 sword set that when equipped it allows the other to be used in dual wield setup should be pretty damn fun.

    That last bit didn't make any sense to me. You're going to equip two swords and still somehow be able to dual-wield another two? :confused:

    two 2-handed swords as a set, that when you equip one you are able to equip the other and dual wield. otherwise each one is a separate two hand, i think.

    I'm just finding the time to start playing. Steam name "pauliegow", if anyone wants to add me. Any basic tips to get started in a positive direction. I'm not much of a gamer in general, and haven't really completed a game since Oblivion.:laugh:

    35 hours in here.
    main quest was done at 16 ish hours.
    Done most of the daedra shrines.
    am the leader of the dark brotherhood
    am the leader of the mages guild
    am the leader of the thieves guild
    Done a few side quests, including the mythic dawn ones, and the one that uses those dragon claw keys.
    Got up to 94 smithing and 93 enchanting (working on this atm)
    I have 1 house (whiterun)
    Currently using a crafted Daedric bow (legendary) with 2 sec soul trap (will be swapped out to something else when i complete enchanting). And a full suit of enchanted glass. (37% bow damage increase where possible). My bow base damage is 180 before arrow and 3x stealth boost.

    Super spoiler do not read unless you want to know my fave bit... This could ruin a lot of peoples games! You have been warned!!


    The best bit for me so far has to be the killing of the emperor with the dark brotherhood... That whole story line was sweet as!!

    Friend of mine made this video. He's level 27 with smithing at 100 and incredible weapons and armor. He's fighting 2 giants, 2 mammoths, and one dragon:

    Major Spoiler for those whom completed the main quest lines aka Imperial / Storm cloak and Dragon Born quest line im serious dont complain to me if i ruin it for you youve been warned

    Am I the only one that finds it completely retarded that the Blades are sworn to protect the dragonborn thats pretty much rule #1 no ifs ands or buts, yet if you dont kill Parthanax they refuse to help you.... hmm seems a bit ridiculous for them to gush over me tell me they MUST protect me that its there sacred duty, the fact I restore them to there temple I recruited there new members I KILLED THE DAMN DRAGONS but the fact i get a dragon to bend to my will and be at my beck and call isnt good enough, they still require me to kill Parthanax no matter what whom pretty much teaches you everything in order to defeat Alduin it just seems pretty damn retarded the Blades toss your ass out after helping them get back on there feet.... screw the blades once i get the creation kit im building my own damn castle with my own guards and my own faction tired of weak story lines gameplay is fun story was decent but some choices and plot twists make no damn sense. also the temple the blades live in is pretty weak, its suppose to be the headquarters but no way to make weapons or armor etc, seems kinda lame, Hopefully modding and some DLC can spruce this up as im moving on to character #2

    For those curious about the max level (and therefore max amount of perks), I found the following on UESP:

    You might want to try planning your skill perk progression with this nice Skill Perk Selector tool, which I found on UESP's Character Creation page.

    So I just picked up a ring...

    It cannot be unequipped and it turns me randomly into a werewolf. I can see how this might be a problem...

    Well the texture packs are big so I'll be saving them for last. Getting some of the smaller ones, usually dealing with specific details like faces, bodies, clothes, armor, lips, gold coins, snowflakes, etc.

    Anyone had to battle two dragons at the same time?
    Fortunately they were weak dragons and slayed in a few seconds as they both decided to land on the ground.

    Image below
    [​IMG]Tried using the Wabberjack on a dragon.....doesn't work :(

    Heard about the perk limit.
    Fortunately I'm not fussed about maxing them out.
    I am happy enough with getting a few select top perks in specific areas.

    My character is already lethal enough as it is.
    Mainly concentrating on getting the top enchanting perk at the moment.

    I'm on level 7 for now. Just wondering did you make your own dragon armour and/or weapons?

    I think you need to get smithing up to 100 to make dragon armor.

    Steam invitation sent. I definitely have some tips for you...

    www.skyrimnexus.com/ (I recommend going through the "Top 100" Category)

    "Models and Textures" category:

    http://www.skyrimnexus.com/downloads/cat.php?id=29

    The big texture packs right now are Beautiful Skyrim (from brooms to berries; constantly being updated as he does additional things) and the Flora one for trees and such though just noticed a Landscape one too though says WIP. Though they are mostly all Works In Progress at this point.
