  • I keep running out of dogs. There need to be more dogs.
  • easiest way to lv. smithing is stock up on iron and leather and make a shitload of iron daggers.
  • well yeah but using iron ore to make gold rings actually makes you a fair bit of money since its like 12 gold of iron ore to get about 70 gold worth of gold rings.
  • If Skyrim is anything like Fallout, the way to fast money is just to be a complete asshole, kill people, steal their shit, and sell it. Soon you're rich! I also cheated at cards. And when they banned me at the casino, I killed everyone who worked at the casino. They learned their lesson.
  • Aside from buying the house and my crippling potion addiction, I don't see much need for money. I am still super early and so maybe that will change but for now I sell the potion lady magicka potions I find and buy healing ones.
  • Have you been dipping into the Skooma? Shame on you!
  • Rebooted my Oblivion game. Temptation to murder and steal too great. So long, honorable orc. Hello, skeezy lizardman, aka Robby McMurderson.
  • Oh sanp I totally have the transmutations spell. I was going for the hard work. Trans-mutating still into gold is much more profitable than making that still into weapons and then selling them by the cheap :O
    Also, why do my horses keep on dying on me :O

    That is what a friend of mine did. He showed me a picture of his character. Also, his character is on level 40 of badassery. Seriously he killed a dragon with one punch, but he is super weak against magic :S

  • I don't know what you could be doing to get your horse killed, they're supposed to have some of the highest hp in the game. Though from what I've read, Skyrim horses are a lot more aggressive than Oblivion horses.
  • Yeah, it's mostly that that they'll run in and fight anything. Most die fighting dragons or like three bears.
  • I saw a horse just straight up murdering some dudes. Then I claimed that horse for my own.

    Then I lost him immediately at the next settlement.
  • You should do the Dark Brotherhood for your own immortal devil horse.

    Does he come when I call him?

    I mean, the whole reason I'm playing is to find the Dark Brotherhood ANYWAY.
  • The only way I know of to call a horse is to fast travel. Your horse will always appear near you.
  • Shadowmere is sadly not immortal in Skyrim. He just has more life and stamina than the other horses. I killed him by clutzing off a mountain D=
  • haha it makes me feel better that I'm not the only one to have fallen off the side of a mountain
  • I do it so much. I have killed at least 3 horses. I think I've murdered two of my housecarls, also. Not mountain related, just "Oops!" as I hacked into them and murdered their faces while trying to hit draugr. Could I be bothered to reload the last save? Nah. 500lbs and a slow crawl back to Whiterun for me. -_-
  • I nearly killed Farkas(or whatever his name is) a lot that same way. I think because he was quest related I couldn't kill him but that dude took a beating from me. Man I over head power attack a lot, stop running in front of me.

    Which reminds me, Companions for life! Randomly help them kill a bear, get told about a group of warriors who fight for the sake of fighting? Sold. Do quest for "honor" find out something even more awesome? Super sold. That whole crew was tailor made for me.

    Fast travel?
  • Can't fast travel if you're encumbered.
  • You can't fast travel when over your weight limit (mine is like 385). I married Farkas =) I keep almost killing him too.
  • That's the other aspect of the Companions, Aela. I keep leaving bandit boots in her room. Don't know if marriage would feel right.
  • I didn't know that encumbrance rule because I just drop things that are worth less than the thing I want. It beats the shit out of walking for 20 minutes.
  • I am like a walking garage sale. I carry all the junk I can to upgrade, enchant, and then sell it for a profit. I don't usually get over encumbered. Only if I "lose" my friend. I do agree just dropping it would probably save me a lot of aggravation, but then the money calls to me. LoL @ Aela. She is an angry broad, but I like her. Marriage is weird because they go from being rough and tumble to Yes, dear. Hello love. Super-weird.
  • LoL @ Aela. She is an angry broad, but I like her. Marriage is weird because they go from being rough and tumble to Yes, dear. Hello love. Super-weird.

    You mean more like she's angry and that's why I like her? But yeah, figured as much with marriage, it's why I probably won't bother to figure it out.

  • The marriage thing has it's perks. They "open a shop" so you can sell them your crap but they also give you half of the earnings from it, so you get more money. They also make "home-cooked meals" once a day that gives a boost to your stats. Like health and stam. I have like three of them in my inventory but I keep forgetting to eat them. They also can come be your fighting companion all the time, or they can just stay home. I kinda really like that. I think they benefits far outweigh the weirdness. Yes, I meant she's angry and that's why I like her. It's nice to have bad-ass females in games that don't ninny out at some point. I'm also a fan of Uthgerd the Unbroken. I loved getting into a fist fight and then becoming "friends" when I beat her. She is hysterically gruff.

    So yep. I'm going to figure out how to marry Aela. I've been running around with her as my sidekick but when I got bored and annoyed by the ranting priest, I wolfed out and ate him. She helped me slaughter the entire town. Soul mates? I do believe so. I think I'll make her the light armor dragon set to match my heavy armor version.

    I'd also like to know what I did that has the Dark Brotherhood sending assassins after me in a steady stream.
  • Speaking on behalf of the Dark Brotherhood, I think it's because the Night Mother says you killed our dad.
  • Well you have obviously pissed off people by killing their relatives for no reason. Enough to drive them to perform the Dark Sacrament to have you killed. :O And you need to go to the Temple of Mara in Riften to get married. I made the heavy dragon armor to match my light dragon armor for Farkas. LoL!!!
  • I've killed no one unless they attacked me first. Though I don't take well to bullying so if they give me shit to, I would push them into fighting. That might be it, oh well. It's a steady supply of daggers to sell and I don't mind, except when it breaks my game. I hate it when 2 questy things start at the same time, the game freaks out and locks up on me. I'll be talking to some dude who hands me a random item, and an assassin will start attacking me and then I'm stuck, weaponless staring at a conversation screen with no one.

    I got married, the ceremony was beautiful with the 2 of us standing there in full dragon parts. What can I say? Great minds think alike? Though, I gave her a daedric bow that I made legendary and she won't use it. If I give her any other bow better than her default hunting bow she has no problem but if I give her the awesome bow, and even remove the hunting bow from her inventory, she will use the default bow. Daedra hearts aren't easy to come by it seems so I use the bow, along side my greatsword but I'd rather her use it so that it doesn't feel like it's wasted. Haven't tried an ebony bow, but I'm not going to bother.

    It is kind of awesome that I can wander around with an archer at my back who will feed me a random kill quest whenever I want. I like getting cornered and watching 2 of the guys go flying off camera with arrows lodged in their sides.

    I've found myself playing almost entirely in 3rd person now, unless I'm scanning book cases for loot. It's so much easier to land a hit with the overhead smash that propels you forward when you can track exactly where the enemy is. Too many times I got pulled forward and past someone, only to get hit in the back. It looks weird but at least it works.
  • Come across a group of Imperials taking a prisoner away (probably to be deheaded), kill them all, free the prisoner and give him a sword to defend himself. All he says is "Pfft, you Imperial scum" (race yo). This man deserves death.
  • This is what you get for joining the racist stormcloaks. I know everyone is a dick, but I found the stormcloaks to get on my nerves way more than the imperials. I think everyone just goes stormcloak because they're not the ones originally trying to cut your head off and because Star Wars logic. When they're more some kind of hillbilly Nord confederate army than rebel alliance.
  • edited November 2011
    Since joining the Stormcloaks, I have come to regret the decision. I don't know much about the legion, but do they commit the same level of war crimes as the Stormys?
  • And there the fact that:

    Spoiler:
    Ulfric Stormcloak had been an informer of and is a probable sleeper agent for the Thalmor.
  • Ok apparently having Aela as a wife is awkward because she'll go hunting and be wandering the world. I sent her back to town so I could do some stealthy thief missions solo but when I came back to pick her up she was gone. I'm thinking I need to accept a quest from her, finish it and never turn it in so that I can track wherever she is. I need my archer watching my back when shit gets real.

    Definitely not fucked up, what you're doing here.
  • Well, it could be much, much worse.

    Unrelated to the above, I have sunk 60 hours into this game and decked myself and Lydia out with awesome dragon plate armor, and I think I'm going to finally just finish the main questline because if I don't there will be no end to this madness.

    Also, I wish my horses were a little less bloodthirsty. It's okay, horse! You can run away from the chaurus. I'll find you the next time I fast travel.
  • You act like me, of all people, didn't word that exactly the way I did without thinking first. I put GPS on my sidekick/wife/hunting partner. And?
  • Oh my god. That video. What the fuck.
  • I saw a reference to that video somewhere else and have yet to watch it. The description was enough.
  • Guessing the video's author has never even spoken to a woman before. When a lady checks him out at the grocery store, he just pees everywhere and runs. It's a hard life.
  • This is totally unrelated I swear! How do I move objects without just putting them in my inventory? My house kind of looks like crap because I keep bumping into everything and sending all the crap on top flying. It be cool if I could just hang my trophy weapons everywhere. Not like I'm ever going to use the Axe of Whiterun or Wuuthrad ever.
  • When a lady checks him out at the grocery store

    I doubt that's really been a problem for him.
  • I think you can move stuff by holding down "e".
  • Hold the A button, or whatever the pick-up button is. No idea if it's different for the PC, but I couldn't figure that out for the longest time either.
  • I spend a lot of time dragging potions across desks on accident.
  • Ah, that makes sense even if it's something I never would have figured out. Thanks.
  • Not that I didn't like playing Batman, but this thread makes me wish I'd put those 15 hours into Skyrim.

    This is Skyrim, though, can't he just put a bucket where her head was? Maybe draw some eyes on there and play some Weekend at Bernie's type music.

    Also, I don't know what a carl is, but I really hope this game is full of them

    I also love that games have achieved a level of realism that your in-game wife can pack you in-game homecooked meals to take for lunch, and you can forget to in-game eat them. Verisimilitude.
