Elder Scrolls V

So the guys at Bethesda let it slip a few months ago that Elder Scrolls V was in the works for 2010, and a friend said he read a possible release in 2009... I'm looking for the article, but I'm friggin' STOKED about a new Elder Scrolls game coming out in the next 12-18 months!!!

I think they can learn a lot with the successes and failures of their previous landmark releases like Morrowind, Oblivion and Fallout 3 and make ESV an absolute KICK ASS game!

That was underwhelming.
Everyone else here has been praising the Mage College quests, including me. Are you referring to the Staff of Magnus quest? That was no cake walk and you explore a good bit of ground.

Smithing. Most (but not all) of the blacksmith shops have a smelter (big dome looking thing). Go to the smelter and smelt ore into ingots - ingots are then used for crafting weapons, armor and jewelry.

Took me a while to figure out what the smelter was. They don't have one in Riverrun where you first get the training.

Oh ok, that's what I thought they were for but saw no way to smelt the ore in Riverrun. That makes sense, thanks. Also, I wish the dude in Riverrun had more than 5 freaking steel ignots for sale. What a bum.

After a few days ore in mines (you can take a pick ax and mine your own) and piles of ore you either take or steal reset.

I found a gold mine and looted the shit out of it - came away with like 70 pieces of gold ore. Combine gold or silver with gems to make jewelry at the blacksmith shop - great money maker and also raises your smithing skill.

Smelting and tanning do not raise skills, however.

No, I mean the fight
Spoiler!


It doesn't much compare to the mages guild quests in Morrowind or Oblivion in any way. Morrowind you damn near usurp the Arch Mage title, and in Oblivion the Mannimarco quest almost seemed more urgent than the main quest.

Oh snap, I saw a pickaxe laying around somewhere but I had no idea you could mine ore. I'm sure there are a million of them laying around everywhere, Imma have to grab one and start farming that shit.

My dual-wielding monster of a champion does not steal, good sir. I have no scruples unlocking other people's chests for that extra lockpicking skill increase, however.

Alvor is 6 feet under in my game. Well, not buried, exactly, just lying next to his cart. He was the victim of a dragon attack on Riverwood, which appears to be the most attacked town in the game.

Yep. When you go in the mines, look for areas with striped patterns - these are veins, and can either be a rocky pile on the ground or in the walls. When you approach them it will highlight as a usuable area. But you have to have the ax. You can generally get 2 chunks of ore from each vein, and occasionally gems as well. If you've cleared a mine, go back and look - once you find one then you'll know what to look for going forward. They all look alike - only difference is the color depending on what the metal is.

There are also veins in rocky/mountainous areas scattered throughout the map - I've only found two so far and have probably missed many more.

Damn, I haven't seen a single dragon save for the opening yet. Of course, 90% of my game time was spent getting to, through and out of the first dungeon.

I did wipe out Riverrrun for fun before logging off last night. I didn't save, of course.
