posted for trav from a couple pages ago.

Thanks. Sucks that it will come out 30 days earlier for 360 than it will on PS3 or PC. Also sucks that it's in the summer.

Man I can't wait for E3 Expo in June. No doubt there will be info on Dawnguard, and lots of info on new games.

Are you kidding? That's 30 days less development / bug fixing.

Mastered:

Smithing, Pickpocketing, Blocking, Heavy Armor and One handed.

Working on two handed. Then I'll go straight archery which I'm at 78.

I feel like a nerd :(

Archery is pretty easy if you use the bow all the time. It was my main weapon and I maxed it pretty quickly. Always my first shot is a sneak bow attack.

I love the warzones mod on Skyrim Nexus. Skyrim is suppose to be a civil war, correct? You sure as hell wouldn't know it until you get this mod. There are massive battle grounds in the holds with probably 40-50 Imperials/Stormcloaks dueling it out and they respawn over time. Much more realistic. And of course if you're a new character, you can always loot the bodies afterwards like back in the medieval ages after war.

I used my bow and arrow for a while, then just went at him with my sword, while getting hammered off potions!

I ran to the right of him and hid in those rocks and went arrow mad on him and hopped out his sight when I had to heal. Was pretty easy. Anyone know where you can check how long you've been playing on PS3? I'm sure I am well over 200 hours. I just don't know where to look.

I'm still stuck at the Broken Oar Ghetto - I can kill everyone, but in the process my follower Lydia gets killed too. Any advice?

My understanding is that your followers will never die as long as you don't hit them while they're down on one knee recovering. Otherwise just download a mod through Steam workshop making your follower invincible.

It's weird why housecarls wont sleep although every other npc does. It's like Bethesda forgot to configure that part of the game

I've finally made the breakthrough - I used a bow while hidden to take out four of the pirates, leaving me, Lydia and my flame atronach to take out the remaining 2/3.

Honestly, the amount of work you have to do to get just a little bit of loot, eh? :lol:

Dawnguard DLC is being reported to be released June 26th for 360 and a month later for PC and PS3. I really hope that is true, I don't want to wait until Autumn to play this add-on.

Vampires are generally in caves or abandoned forts. And it isn't like you can't still do this stuff but you will also have some sweet DLC in you file waiting for you to enact it.

There is a steam workshop mod that has higher bounty rewards. 500 gold for killing a bandit leader, 1000 for a giant and 5000 for a dragon. That way you aren't risking your ass for pocket change. I love the mods that are made. Most of them are well done.

One thing I'd love to see the next Elder Scrolls game do is where the entire world map is completely randomized every new game you create. Just like RPGs; Age of Empires, Starcraft, etc. No map is ever the same. I suppose that isn't possible with these games however. It would affect the story too much, etc. Too much for the PC to process.

Can't say I do Azzy, since I've been playing Elder Scrolls games since 2002.

And yes, the Wabbajack quest was an odd one.

The quest given by Sam Guevenne was hilarious.

There is absolutely no way anybody should have trouble getting gold in this game. Not mining and skinning and nickle and dime stuff like that but just by taking only the valuable stuff from dungeons and getting a few perks in the speech tree. My general rule of thumb for loot is I only take it if its worth at least 100 times its weight as I always try to max out on weight before heading back to a town.

Yeah after a while if it isn't enchanted I don't take it and with the Steed stone and one of the pick pocketing perks you can raise your carry capacity by a combined 200lbs helps a lot with dungeon looting sometimes I hit 3 or 4 dungeons before I remember to go back to town.

i never bothered with pick pocketing beyond the very little needed for a couple quests so no perks there. Just got the heavy armor perk where my armor has no weight and that was enough to unburden me. Even then at lvl 64 I have close to a million gold and nothing to spend it on lol.
