^my current one is 'Retake the Rift' or something

hopefully i only have 3-4 more missions in that questline to finish it

also how come every time I take one of the Companions out to kill a dragon, I end up fighting 2 dragons?

Morrowind was the same way. It was a damn pain in the ass to complete some of the quest lines.

I just realized today that the Skeleton Key does not count toward the Oblivion Walker achievement. Why did I not get the damn Skull of Corruption when I had the chance!?!?!?! FUUUUU It's going to be the only achievement I didn't get. It's the most prestigious and difficult to get achievement in the game, imo.

I do think it's bullshit that it doesn't count when the Oghma Infinium does and you have to destroy it for a quest. I mean, you carry the skeleton key in your freaking possession for a while!

just used the Elder Scroll on top of the Throat of the World

i dunno if it was using the scroll or just going back up there, but a couple sidequests I had that were previously uncompletable (kill a giant somewhere, kill a dragon at bonestrewn crest) now showed up on my map and i was able to complete them

i don't think you can get the 'learn 20 shouts' achievement until you beat the main quest

also i didn't kill paarthunax, i had already done the blades questline, but if you kill paarthunax the graybeards hate you more than the blades currently do

I am basically going the route you went.

When I say I am trying to learn all the shouts, I meant that I'm still going to the Greybeards to find the Words of Power for all of the shouts I have now.

I have all the dragon priest masks except for the one that you have to get at the end of the main quest line.

Don't know if they addressed this in a patch but back when I played the graybeards eventually stopped giving out word locations after a certain number and you were left to find the rest on your own. The 'work around' was to shout inside a city and eventually a messenger would show up with a quest that included the location of another wall.

In my second playthrough I did a combo of the shout in town method and just revisiting places that I remembered from the first playthrough. The idea was to only use the finite number of graybeard quests to hunt down the last few walls once patience waiting on the messenger to show up wore off.

Yeah I exhausted the graybeards word wall quests and only had 19 shouts (including the Call Dragon shout)

also the couriers come when you use a shout in any major hold, or small town like Riverwood. I had nearly beaten the game before I accidentally stumbled back into Helgen (original town from intro of game) and coincidentally did a Shout, only to have a courier come at me in the next town

i guess most people don't ever go back to Helgen, and you obviously don't have the ability to Shout when you first start playing

i'm at 49/50, and somehow got the 15 daedric artifacts achievement without losing Barbas, although i think its because i have the rueful axe but just havent finished that quest

only achievement left is to get a bounty of at least 1000 in each hold, which means i can just murder the shit out of some guards and innocents, run a far enough distance away to fast travel, and do the same evil shit in every other town

Getting back into the game to get ready for the DLC. Forgot how great it was. About to finally finish up the main story line (after 90 hrs of gameplay) It took me so long because I'm a rogue...all sneak and archery so it takes forever to clear dungeons.

I was thinking though, that once I beat the main story that I would re-roll a Two-Handed/Heavy Armor Orc or Dual Wield/Heavy Red Guard....what say you?

if you did a stealth/archery class and want to do another one, a change of pace like heavy armor/something would be good...up close and personal battles

i recommend the heavy armor, 2-handed type of character. very fun and brutal in fights. concentrate all on health and stamina, 2:1 ratio, gonna need lots of stamina with 2-handed weapons.

My advice for your next game? Don't do ANY crafting (Smithing, Enchanting, Alchemy). It just makes the game more fun all around IMO.

You can walk from one place to another and enjoy the scenery instead of picking every flower and catching every butterfly on the road. The weapons and armor you get from quests are actually useful instead of just being fancy looking garbage that you throw in your display rack. You have to manage your potions more effectively, plus you won't be racking up thousands in free gold so the economy isn't broken as quickly.

Plus the difficulty progression will be more natural; you won't have super powerful equipment but also the enemies won't be as high level since you haven't been raising your crafting skills.

I'm going to do it...feel crazy getting rid of 90+ hours of game play...

Trying to decide between a DUAL WIELD RED GUARD and 2 HANDED ORC...anyone dual wield. How does blocking work if you don't use a sheild?

I'd love to play as a Khajit or Argonian, but I've already sunk so much time into sneaking.

my heavy armor 2-handed orc i dual wielded once in awhile, just to switch it up some. blocking is essentially the same with a weapon versus a shield, you just take more damage compared to the shield. but it's better than not blocking at all.

You can't block if you dual-wield right?

you block with your 2nd weapon. its the same blocking motion, except it is with a weapon and not a shield.

Really? I thought the button you ordinarily use to block becomes your off-hand attack. I thought that was the drawback to dual wielding. http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Block_(Skyrim) agrees with me.

Who blocks? They call these games 'hack n slash' for a reason.

With what button?

Right click is default block, when you dual wield that turns into your left hand attack.

This is awkward as shit too. Why did they make using what's in your left hand right click and right hand left click? I always re-map it but then that fucks up hotkeying something fierce because hotkeys always put stuff in your main hand by default.

Man, Volendrung is badass. Being that I'm swingin' a warhammer most of the time, I'm sitting pretty high and mighty now

^only thing it REALLY needs is a menu mod to replace that clunky garbage they ship it with

Seriously, how did they think that was a good design

Regarding Dawnguard on other platforms, I've found this disappointing news on a few sites now:

Quote :
"Pete Hines, Vice President of Public Relations and Marketing, issued some bad news on his Twitter account in regards to the Dawnguard downloadble content for Elder Scrolls: Skyrim.

The post in question refers to the fact that Skyrim's upcoming DLC doesn't have planned release times, or official announcements for that matter, for the PlayStation 3 and PC versions of Skyrim. Specifically, Hines had this to say:

"We have not announced Dawnguard for any other platform, nor given a timeline for any such news. If we have news, I promise I'd tell you."

This may look like another Microsoft buyout, but Hines also had this to say in response to comments:

"I was simply stating that expecting/demanding something today is unfounded. Not that news is never coming."

Hopefully, this is simply a misunderstanding, and Dawnguard is still being developed for both PS3 and PC. We'll keep you updated as Hines and Bethesda release more information. Until then, speculate on what you think could be the cause. Does this change your mind to buy the DLC, or is Bethesda still bringing Dawnguard to PS3 and PC?"

Dawnguard out now for PC. And Skyrim is half price so if you don't have it (or don't have it for PC and want to try out some mods) you can get both for $50.
