Interestingly I just had the red eagle arc happen again.  Elder dragons suck.  On the smithing thing, make iron daggers and enchant them.  Easier and cheaper than any other weapon.  Charging your weapon will also raise your enchanting.  I'm waiting on the wife to quit cooking and giving me money

I have a Nord that is already at 100 sneak and 100 Archery. Trick is to sneak everywhere. Never turn it off unless you're in melee combat or need to talk to someone, and to pop off all the little critters you see running about.

Can drop most enemies in the first shot and nearly all of them before they've detected me. The stronger creatures and some unique NPC's require more of a beating so I'll feather them a bit from a distance and then  as they get closer I switch to dual wielding chain lightning and fireball. Once my magic is exhausted (usually only two casts) I switch to melee weapons and dual wield two hand crafted and enchanted swords.

One of these days I might actually get around to doing the main story quests, once I do the remaining thieves guild , dark brotherhood and mage guild quests.

There is nothing really that can touch me now. I have the full Daedra gear, high enchantments on the weapons/armor/jewelry, a follower with all Daedra gear/high level mage weaponry, my Alchemy is solid, I can smith all heavy armor and sale it for a inflated price due to the craftmanship. The only thing that can slow me down is groups of high level Wizards attacking simulteneously and I have been using Sanguine's Rose to summon Dremora to distract while I get in amongst them with some whirlwind shouts. The Ice Form shout is the best tool you can have for fighting dungeon bosses and other high level enemies.

Completed the quest for collecting all 24 unusual gems.

Holy crap! The gems that start pouring into your lap are just sick. Every chest, burial urn and draugr corpse (the ones that never come alive) has 2 to 3 gems if not more. The merchants couldn't keep up after 2 short dungeon runs so I just started piling them in a box in Proudspire Manor. After about 5 missions the box is spilling onto the floor.

I AM THE 1% !!!

Not to be confused with people who can cite every statistic for players they themselves could never compete with in sports that are just as irrelevant but far more overpriced.

The character level is now 51. Just finished the Thieves' Guild storyline/became a Priest of Nocturnal and am now about halfway through the Mage College one. Have taken down 4 Ancient Dragons so far.

I don't like finishing the Priest of Nocturna quest.

Been hitting a lot of quest bugs lately and have to use console commands to advance quests that don't update or recognize the retrieval of an item.

My heart goes out to those of you playing on 360 or PS3 instead of PC.

Got the double enchantment perk. Am tearing through entire dungeons/tribes without touching the health. My Armor rating is around 1100 now and the battle axe is about 300 per whack.

Looks like alot of bugs with that mod. I'm still waiting for a Skyrim-like game thats X-Rated.

So is this a game where you have to team up for raids like with WoW?  I like doing solo quests but I hate joining up with anonymous nerds to complete raids.

Skyrim is not multiplayer. The closest it gets to "multiplayer" is NPC followers.

Klaatu... barada... necktie!

I summon thread necromancy. It crits.

Recently got this game thanks to the Sarge. Holy crap. What day is it? I've gotten little sleep and we're moving. I want to play, but I gotta pack.

I'm currently working on a Dark Elf Ranger. I'm going to be crafting some Elven gear soon, hopefully. I have some pieces that don't require quicksilver I believe its called. I'm level 10 and I think I'm going to be pumping all her stats into mostly Health. Use enchants for anything else.

I tried but wasn't impressed. I think Runescape and WoW are better. Just a personal preference. :)
