Got the Azura's Star last night. I thought it would be a lot harder but thankfully the sunken fort was full of necromancers instead of mages. It was a freaking slaughter. I did have to use a couple of health potions when fighting those daedra dudes shooting powerful fire all over the place inside the Star, though.

Now I have a permanent Black Soul Gem. :evil:
it's just the guys inside the star that that were difficult

i was like level 7 at the time though so it may be different later.

Fast healing and fireballs. You don't even have to kill the other dudes. It brings you out after the main man is dead.

Those 3 dudes had daedra hearts so if anyone still has to do this part, I would suggest killing them. Where else can I get those hearts by the way? I need 6 total for my Daedric armor and axes and only have 4 so far. And yeah, those dudes blast you with fire pretty hard. I have something like 360 HP and had to use health potions after killing the 2nd one in order to survive the 3rd.

Four can be aquired from Dremora Kynreeves at the Shrine of Mehrunes Dagon, east of Morthal. The NPC respawn after 7 days, establishing the Shrine as perhaps one of the most efficient location to gather Daedra Hearts. A fast way to farm the daedra hearts can be seen here.

Just buy 'em from the guy at the mages college.

so where is this place full of fire atronachs? You can't kill your own, i tried.

another good place to fill soul gems is way up north with the icebergs.

you can go up and find a whole herd of horkers that move slow and are easy pickings.

the soul trap spell make them go agro so i just use it to round them all up and then blast the whole bunch with a couple of fireballs ... fills up 7 or 8 soul gems at once.

Uh, yeah. Bought it on Day 1 and am now around level 52. I didn''t suggest you could find a place with a bunch of flame atronachs; I gave you a standard CP (ak a smartass) response that the way you get fire salts is by killing FAs.

Word of warning - apparently not all the places you store stuff are safe.

I put a bunch of crap (including my full set of Nightengale armor) in one of the barrels by the blacksmith in Riften - I don't know if it had anything to do with loading the latest patch, but when I went back to check the inventory, the barrel was empty. Not that big of a deal since I'm level 52 now, but annoying nonetheless.

Also, that glitch with the companion quest has still not resolved itself. I'm getting the impression that at some base level the game just blew a gasket when I cleared that particular dungeon early, and even though I went back to an earlier save point, it is just fucked up and that's the end of it. The people in Whiterun are still standing around like morons even after I moved the bodies. The most annoying thing is that I'm stuck with the werewolf thing now, which I never use and which also prevents me from getting the rest bonuses. It may also prevent the marriage quest, since putting on the amulet does nothing when it should spark interest in certain characters.

P.S. If anyone needs gold ore, Kolskeggr Mine (NE of Markath) gave me 54 ore + 2 ignots (sitting on the table) in one go. Much jewelry was made for a hefty profit last night while increasing my Blacksmithing and Enchanting. :)

In other news, I just completed the main part of the Dark Brotherhood quest. I liked it (apparently more than others did), although won't be able to show my face in Solitude again for a while. I pretty much went full-out avenger at the end.

Anytime I get iron ore I just use the transmuting spell to change it to silver then to gold so I end up increasing my alteration skills as well.

I do that too, but it would take me forever to process 54 ore iron ore to gold. My magicka is at 130 (thanks to an amulet, otherwise it would be at the default 100) and the Transmute spell costs 80... that's a lot of waiting for the magicka bar to recharge.

This is the fourth consecutive month in which the Xbox 360 has been the top selling hardware system. The gap between 360 sales and sales of the next best selling platform was the largest we’ve seen since December 2008 when the Nintendo DS was the top selling system.

The month-over-month sales increase versus October that all systems realized is in line with the range we typically see going into November, so hardware performed in line with typical seasonality trends

This November marks the best November on record for sales of new physical content. November 2008 was previously the best November on record

In one month, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is just about half a million units shy of matching Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion in lifetime sales. Its first month performance was a five-fold increase over Oblivion’s first month sales. The game garnered outstanding review scores

When looking at the top 10 best selling titles at the SKU level, both Super Mario 3D Land and Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary would have been included

Even with Call of Duty coming to market, Battlefield 3 was the third best-selling game of the month, and is now the best-selling title under the Battlefield property.”

“The critically acclaimed Batman: Arkham City sold well in month two at retail and is now just shy of Batman: Arkham Asylum’s lifetime unit sales

Other milestones reached in November include:

Software

The Super Mario 3D Land™ game for Nintendo 3DS sold more than 625,000 units and is the fastest-selling portable Super Mario™ title in U.S. history.
The Legend of Zelda™: Skyward Sword for the Wii system had the biggest first day in franchise history and sold more than 600,000 units in its first week.

Hardware

Nintendo sold more than 2 million combined hardware units in November. This includes more than 860,000 Wii systems, more than 795,000 Nintendo 3DS units and more than 350,000 units of the Nintendo DS family of systems.
Nintendo 3DS had its biggest single month of sales, representing an increase of more than 215 percent over the previous month, and has now sold nearly 2.5 million units since launch.
Wii had its biggest Black Friday ever with more than 520,000 units sold. Full-month sales increased by more than 245 percent over the previous month.

“Great software and unparalleled value drove momentum on Black Friday and through November,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Both Nintendo 3DS and Wii have already set records, and we’ve still got the bulk of the shopping season to go. People are flocking to our bundles and the fun of Mario and Zelda that can only be found on Nintendo systems.”For more information about Nintendo, visit http://www.nintendo.com.

Battled my first major glitch today with the elevators to Blackreach. They wouldn't let me out, just keep reloading the screen over and over. It was a real pain.

Also, battled my first elder dragon today (I think... I'm tired and memory is shot). The worst part of the whole battle was the effort I put into "hiding" Frost somewhere so his stupid ass wouldn't come to "help" me. It's like no matter how far I ran him away from the town, the dragon would follow us and start attacking. I eventually just left him at a far spot and ran to the town. I shouldn't have to go through this much trouble to keep a horse, but for some reason I don't want to lose him. There's only the 2 named horses in the game right?

Zarcenia. I almost always use Zalia (Dark Tower Series ftw!) for names as it's my favorite, but I just started typing random things and in the end chose this one. It's not really my best name I've used, but that's ok. I'll have several more names I'm sure.

Oh and I was going to ask, for those you with smithing/enchantment 100, what is your "end game" gear you've made for yourself so far?

I'm about to go enchant my first set of dragon stuff and I'm looking for nice combos and ideas.

Since I'm an archer, I use the light dragon scale armor with archery enchantments, a health bonus on the main armor, strength bonus on the boots, one handed on the gauntlets.

You guys should honestly not do every side-quest on your first play-through, and stick to one side of the map (east or west depending on if you are stormcloak (east) / imperial (west)). Then you can do a second play-through as a different race and different class, and do all new missions. That's what I did and it's like a whole different game.

This is a great approach.

If you (a) took this approach, (b) didn't collect every gold piece and sellable item you could find AND (c) minimized the amount of time you spent "farming" your skill levels up (as opposed letting your levels advance naturally according to your exploits), would you still be able to beat the game? Do you think you'd still be able to max the attributes/skills/spells you focus on (e.g. enchantment, fire resistance, etc.) by playing this way?

Yes. Theoretically you could beat the game at a level 10. All you have to do is work on the main quest line and not do anything else.

OK, that answers my question. When I play, I won't want to strictly limit myself to the main quest. I just wouldn't want to spend a lot of time enchanting minor items to sell for cash or letting easily killable creatures chew on me while I worked on my healing, for example. I'd still want to experience many of the sidequests on each playthrough. Thanks.

I love the game so far, only level 34 but the one thing that sucks is there is a lack of random monsters that might take you out. Sure there is the ocassional dragon but even those are not terribly hard to kill in most cases. I wish there most more random monsters in the land that might pop out and give me a good run for my money. Anyone else feel this way or find a place that might have more mobs to hack and slash? It seems like one dungeon crawl after another to get to fight anyone.

seems to me that archers can be way overpowered if you select all the archery/stealth/critic perks related to bows. Add in potion application with perks that make that more effective and you are going to be kicking some ass.

I leveled my HP up to 200 first, then did some stamina, then started to go back and forth up until I had about 330 stamina. It's all been HP since then. Getting the perk for weightless Heavy Armor makes a huge difference, but it takes a long time.

Looks like I'm smart to wait for the GOTY edition:

The epic and wildly anticipated new entry in the Elder Scrolls series, Skyrim, walked away with the top prize from this weekend's Video Game Awards.

The annual awards ceremony, televised on Spike TV, has become the definitive arena for determining which games rose above the rest over the past year. 25 of the most prestigious gaming media are involved in the voting process.

Skyrim taking away the most coveted award is not an enormous surprise, but it does understandably bring up the recent issue of glitches and game-crashing bugs, crippling the experience for some players, many of whom on the PS3 version.

The problems seem to increase as players progress through the game, leading to the assumption that as the save file gets bigger and bigger, the game drains the system's resources and after a certain point becomes largely unplayable.

In a blog post, publisher Bethesda wrote, "We understand how frustrating it can be when your game is having issues, and we thank all of you for your continued feedback and patience. Rest assured we take your gameplay experience seriously and will continue working on this until it's resolved."

Nevertheless, to gamers who have not been affected by the various glitches, it has been heralded as a marvelous and unparalleled experience. The title was the second best selling game behind Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

There is a staff of familiar summoning you could use so you don't have to use a skill point. Summoned a Wolf for me.

btw you can enchant gloves and helmets with the Archery damage bonus ... 40% damage increase each if you use a grand soul.

That's 100% damage increase from perks
80% damage increase from enchant (i don't know if you can do it on jewelry)
3x damage with sneak hit perk
30% increase damage chance for critiacal hit with perk(s)

very nice

I just made me a pretty nice Ebony bow with dual enchants

35 base damage
17 fire damage (double if they are on fire)
5 second soul capture
25 frost damage to health and stamina

40% damage increase from glove/helm enchant

How did you get 3 enchants on your bow?

I'm going to make my fully maxed Daedric set today, just need 3 more Daedra hearts. Also, if you're going for the absolute maxed out items, make sure to drink the blacksmithing and enchanting potions (use the strongest ones) before you make and enchant your things.

And yeah, absorb magicka works just like absorb health - you steal theirs when you hit them.

Also, to all you heavy armor wearing blacksmiths, save your skill point and don't invest into Dragon Armor. Daedric is better all around even though it's a peg lower.

As far as Dragon attacks, I'm pretty sure they're all elemental and physical.

I'll be damned you're right. Only benefit, it seems, is dragon plate armor is about 10 pounds lighter for the set. Not a biggie if you use the heavy armor perk to remove weight of heavy armor.

Dragon scale armor (light), however, is the best light armor you can get.

He’s Level 35 In Skyrim. He Makes Villagers Kill His Dragons.

http://www.kotaku.com.au/2011/12/hes-level-35-in-skyrim-he-makes-villagers-kill-his-dragons/

http://cache.gawkerassets.com/assets/images/9/2011/12/xlarge_42e1dcbcabf2f23c1ace1b9992408a4c.jpg

Some pacifists are nice people who wouldn’t harm an elf. Others would cast a spell on a town full of people and have the crowd beat the elf to a pulp.

The second kind of pacifist isn’t really a pacifist, of course. She’s a manipulative monster who keeps her hands clean. That’s who gamer Ian Jones is playing as he reached level 35 of the mammoth role-playing game Skyrim without recording a single killing blow.

He even makes dragons dead, without laying a sword or spell on them.

“My primary method of tackling dragons is to try and kite them to a nearby town or fort full of friendly [non-player characters] (or on one occasion two Giants) which I buff with spells like Courage and heal them while they do the work for me,” Jones told me over e-mail. “It takes a while and sometimes the NPCs die too fast; but for about half of the dragons I encounter I can take them down with this method.

Jones is playing his third character in Skyrim, his first as a non-killer. “I see my character as a type of mentalist or minstrel: inspiring strife or discord to manipulate the odds in her favour while not actual being the one with blood on her hands.” She is a very different kind of non-killer than Felix the Monk, the gentle pacifist we’ve covered here on Kotaku previously. That pacifist was nice. That pacifist was also Level 9 in Skyrim. Jones says he’s ranked his heroine to Level 35, reaching the Alduin’s Wall part of the main quest and otherwise just screwing around in the massive game.

http://cache.gawkerassets.com/assets/images/9/2011/12/large_0194516327a2b9be97e114ae8596662b.jpg

“I imagine I could likely get up to the final face-off with Alduin before I hit my wall and am unable to go any further without directly killing him,” Jones told me. “When it comes to side quests I’ve dipped my fingers in just about every quest I’ve come across. I’ve gotten up to the Labyrinthian quest in the Winterhold College questline — I’m still theorycrafting how to go about getting past the Dragon Priest at the end of that one.”

Jones’ playing style seems unpleasant. He advises those who get frustrated easily to avoid copying him. “There have been several times where I’ve had to reload entire dungeons, because I couldn’t get past a certain area without direct confrontation and losing my pacifist goal.”

It may be frustrating to play as a master-manipulator, but it’s also downright clever. Consider how Jones handled getting into the murderous Dark Brotherhood… without murdering anyone himself: “Well, the first Dark Brotherhood quest involves killing a cruel orphanage headmaster — luckily enough for me there is also another adult present in the orphanage. I simply used Frenzy on the other nursery maid and let her kill Grelod for me. After this quest is a quest that requires you to murder a victim in front of the guild master Astrid. I frenzied Astrid into killing the victims for me, which completed the quest. Oddly enough neither of these tactics counted as a kill in my statistics which allowed me to technically still be a pacifist.”

And here’s how he got through the game’s first main quest, one that pits the player one-on-one against a single enemy. What does a character who makes others do the killing for him or her do with a situation like that? Jones: “My biggest challenges are one-on-one faceoffs. For example: The Draugr at the end of Bleak Falls Barrow (the first real quest dungeon in the game) where you must kill him to get a Dragonstone for the main questline. I had to kite him all of the way back to a hallway with a swinging axe trap and run him through it about 10 times before he died and I was able to loot the quest item off of him. There have been other scenarios like that where I’m forced to use other tools available to me in order to work with my 0 kills goal.”

Jones calls this playing style “contrived.” It’s also amazing. Poor dragons, they thought they had an easy mark.

I was thinking doing Health Absorb + Stamina Absorb on one axe and Soul Capture + Fire on the other axe, but if I can squeeze in a third enchant on the 2nd axe, holy shit that would be awesome. That would mean I would have 5 effects going with every swing... JIMP

Well, I'm not going to worry about Frost damage because I'm already draining their stamina and adding it to mine. Same thing with health.

I have fortified Archery/one-handed 120% each. 31% faster health and stamina regeneration, and 80% magic resistance (dragons do almost no damage to me at all).

I'm almost immune to casters and my bow and one handed to in excess of 130 base damage each and I still don't have the 100% damage perks (one handed is at 78 though!) Soul trap/ 31 pts shock on my bow and my sword has 62 pts of frost/lightning damage.

I also have a sword on another save game that does 8,299 points of fire damage... and a helmet that fortifies magicka by 1456 points. I just wanted to glitch the game and see how funny it was. I can't actually play that game, because the game is easy enough. It is funny to 1 shot an elder dragon though.

In Oblivion, for a while I walked around in clothing that had combined enchantments of 100% chameleon. That mean I was totally invisible 100% of the time. However, since it was chameleon, that also meant I could interact with anything and it wouldn't change whether or not people could see me, so I could kill and thieve anything I wanted whenever I wanted. Also meant I could go through Oblivion gates and walk straight to the end.

Cool for a while, then totally boring.

The hardest one I came across was a Blood Dragon that almost never dropped to the ground and would breath fire on me as he was passing by as well as coming down low and stopping to breath fire. Then when I forced him to come down, he would shoot like a missile of fire at me then quickly walk towards me to do the "bite and swing back and forth and throw" animation on me. Had to save like multiple times during the battle when good things happened. Embarrassed.

Had an Ancient Dragon and an Elder Dragon attack me outta the blue last night. Both at the same time. That was pretty awesome. I usually just use duel firebolt, charge it into 1 shot and then blast them over and over. The stun keeps them from hitting me at all.

Well, i went to try that to the ancient. The ****er walked up, bit me and tossed me like a rag doll. LMAO that was the first time i've seen that. I haven't had trouble with dragons in a long time so i figured i'd just stand in front of him like i always do and stun/kill him with the firebolt. Wrong.

Skyrim Online Mod

http://www.skyrimnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=3592

http://static.skyrimnexus.com/downloads/images/3592-1-1323811078.jpg

Skyrim Online turns your single experience into an online experience, play with your friends, chat with people worldwide, trade with other players...

Currently in the alpha stage you can see other players (appearing as a spectral horse), you can also chat with everybody.

The mod also includes an Arena to fight with waves of creeps.

Installation :

0) Back up your config files, this mod will rewrite them !!!
1) Unrar the file in your Skyrim root folder.
2) Create a shortcut for SkyrimOnline.exe on your desktop

Usage :

- Start SkyrimOnline.exe, it will automatically update the mod and then allow you to start the game with the mod.
- When you enter the game, you will be prompted for a username, enter whatever username you feel like using there is no authentication yet.
- To switch between UI mode and Game mode press F3.

Known bugs :

- In UI mode some keys are sill enabled such as Journal and Wait, you might want to bind these keys to keys that are not needed in the UI (I personally use £ and µ).
- Other player's movements are very awkward and animations are not played yet.

Bug reports :

To report a bug please send me the content of SkyrimOnline.log and asiloader.log and describe me the problem (a screenshot would be even better).

I've got my new character up to level 52 now. I've started getting speech skills - just added the one that allows you to invest in business to raise their base cash amounts. The skill before that lets you sell anything to any merchant, which is a real time saver. I've got houses in Solitude, Rifken and Markarth. I've still barely completed anything in the main quest, or picked a side in the overall war, although I'm sure I'll go with the Stormcloaks (it's the rebel in me :D ).

I'm in the Companion's building in Whiterun, and every time I try to leave it dumps me out of the game back into Steam. I can go into the basement and back, sleep, resave, basically do whatever I want, but when I try to leave the building it dumps me out. I've changed resolutions, dismissed the follower, changed up pretty much everything I can think of.... nothing. Looks like I'll have to back to a much earlier save.

Up to Level 57 now - closing in on 58.

I've had to switch up my gameplay style to keep advancing, so now I do a lot more destructive magic attacks.

At this level, the mages are my biggest problem - the bosses are archmages, and can kill me with about three shots. They also don't seem terribly effected by my magic attacks, so for the big guns I have to revert.

had that problem myself until i added magic and elemental resists to my armor.

the dual enchantment perk is fantastic at the higher levels.

iirc i think boots can hold a really high % ... like 39% for cold and 49% for fire. Also frost Atronachs are big time mage killers because it seem like the higher mages use frost.

Level 27, finished all of the Imperial Legion, Most of the Dark Brotherhood, Just started the Companions, One mission into the Thieves Guild. Half way through the Main quest.

I've been having better results lately. Running the game at medium setting, it shits out on me every now and then, but it's just the game that crashes and not the computer. About half way to Level 58 - this one's taking a long, long time. I'm thinking 60 would be the cap, just because at this point gaining skill levels barely makes the bar move. I've got nearly 80K gold - I'm getting to the point where I don't even bother picking shit up anymore.

Married my Solitude housecarl - I was hoping for some hot lesbo sex, but there doesn't seem to be an option in the dialogue box that sets it off (although I can now buy stuff from my wife, including the double-enchanted armor and weapons I'VE GIVEN HER). What a bitch.

Finally joined the Stormcloak Rebellion, but I haven't started any quests yet. Have still barely scratched the surface of the main plot.

I think Bethesda has said the mathematical level cap is 70. At that point, you'd have maxed out every category.

I've done very little of the main quest. I'm lever 58ish, too, and just joined the Empire a couple of days ago. I'm through Dark Brotherhood, Mage's College... started Thieve's Guild but not inclined to do it anymore because I screwed up and sold my guild armor (which prevents me from actually finishing the quest line)... haven't started the Imperial quests or joined Companions, yet.

Yep.

There may be some more bard college stuff too, but I haven't checked lately. I also do a lot of extra stuff for the various jarls.

I played it in much the same way I've played this one. I'm sure it will seem somewhat lame in comparison to this. Dungeons and ruins are extremely repetitive and the NPCs are generally retarded. However, it's a great game. I played it for months, maxed everything out, and then one day burned out in the middle of an expansion and never played again. But I certainly got my money's worth out of it.
