I think that is the one I've already done. I picked that power, but I don't think it works. I keep accidentally hitting Lydia.

 

Thanks for the link.

It works if you are in combat. Your follower won't take damage from you as long as you are in combat at the time. If it was all the time how would we kill Lydia when she is being stupid?

It doesn't work in combat either. If I take a swing at a guy and Lydia charges into the way, I end up hitting her and get a cry of "I'm on your side!".

 

Welp, beat Miraak. Took me several times because he kept on glitching and staying see through. After umpteen reloads I finally managed to get him dead after killing the dragon that took me there the moment I dismounted.

 

I've got all the trophies and done all the quests that interested me. I guess I won't be playing it again. Good game though (apart from the bugs).

Heh same here. I found Oblivin 3 years ago and never looked back. Skyrim has dragons, and you are a dragonborn. You have the soul of dragon.

Every time you kill a dragon, you learn a shout. Its a powerful spell xP. And the dragons aren't scripted... epic. The graphics are awesome, but the map is a third the size of oblivion's. I wonder if you can ride the dragons... Mmm.

 

Anyways, thats what I know. Look up the trailer and such on youtube.

Ineed you can ride dragons, and I love it so much! If you have the add-on Dragonborn, then that starts another story about another dragonborn just like yours except he's evil and you need to stop him. The shout for riding a dragon is called Bend Will (Gol-Hah-Dov, Earth-Mind-Dragon), of course you need all three words to ride a dragon.

I don't like being a vampire. It's too unwieldly for me. I might get the vampire perk trophy and then re-load the save I made before walking into the castle.

Me neither, I hate being a vampire.

Does anyone have any thoughts/wants for TES6 (not online!)?

 

I personally want a chance to take on the Thalmor. I don't care if it is part of the main quest or one of the side stories, but I really think they need taking down a peg or two.

 

Or perhaps even have the chance to join them? If the player is inclined to? You could start off a lowly soldier escorting more important memebers and arresting/tracking down targets and slowly work your way through the ranks until, like in every other organisation side story, you are running the show.

 

And a better romance system would be nice. None of this 'wanna get hitched?' 'yeah' *wedding*. Lets turn it into a proper thing. If there is someone you like lets go to the trouble of doing some quests for them, or even just spending a little time with them first. I want to be able to invite them for a drink at the inn and maybe have a short conversation with them.

 

Or even better, lets have someone ask you out. Done several quests in the area? Saved someone from bandits? Have a high enough skill in smithing? Lets have an impressed or interested NPC come over and ask you on a date (slaying bears together/drink at the inn/making daggers).

 

And lastly (for now), I want to be able to become a Jarl. If I do enough quests for a place, am on good enough terms with most of the people and have a house nearby, my name should be down for Jarl should anythign happen to the previous one. Of course, to be fair, you can only be Jarl of one place at a time/per playthrough, but each one would open up new options/quests in that area.

That sounds fun! I want the next elderscrolls to have co-op and another guild or two.

I'm not sure about co-op (I like single player mode myself), but it would be nice to maybe build your own guild or something.

 

And whether you build your own guild or just take over a previous one, it'd be really nice if once you are in charge you get some respect from your guild members.

 

Edit: How's this for an idea?

 

In Skyrim (I don't know about other games) you had the option to buy a house / a plot of land and turn it into a home for your character. Does one person really need nine or more houses? Why not do something else with it? Like turn it into a Guild building?

 

Say you have a high alchemy skill. You get given a house/plot of land and decide to furnish it with everything a alchemist needs. You can than decide to register it with the local authorities as a guild house for Alchemy. You can then wander around and ask NPCS with alchemy skills if they would like to join (you may have to do a small quest for them first). They say yes and move to your guild house.

 

Depending on who you enlist you can have someone who tends to the garden and gives you more ingredients than you could farm yourself. You could have someone who discovers (teaches you) new potions. Maybe there could be someone who will sell the potions you make on your behalf and give you the gold in a week's time (one thing that annoyed me in Skyrim was that you had to sell stuff to your spouse, rather than giving them stuff and asking them to sell it).

 

You could design your own uniform (colour, material, patterns) which comes with alchemy related perks. You could have requests from NPCs to brew certain potions or get rare ingredients for your members. So many possiblities!

I think they are trying to ask if there is anyone who plays ESO here.

I finally beat all the oblivion DLCs and I made a new character just to beat shivering isles again.

I'm considering replaying Skyrim with a Nord character and picking the other side in the war. Will probably uninstall Dawnguard and Dragonborn though, can't be fussed with the vampire plotline (or random vampire attacks) or with Miraak popping up after every other dragon soul.

Actually I'm pretty sure Miraak only pops up once you start the main dragonborn quest and read the first black book. So I would keep it for the armor. But definitely uninstall dawngaurd because the vampire attacks get bad.

Yeah, Miraak doesn't appear till you read the Black Book and meet him. You might get cultists attacking you before you meet him, though. I think you can travel to Solstheim without being Dragonborn yet too, there's just not as much to do there.

 

I've been thoroughly enjoying ESO. It's awesome to see all these places we've only heard about before.

I wore my dragon scale armour throughout the Dragonborn DLC anyway, so I'm not fused about missing out on weapons.

 

I waiting to see what the achievements for the PS version of ESO are before I consider getting it. Don't get me wrong, I loved Skyrim, but those games are so open with so much to do that it helps me if I have some kind of goal to work towards.

Depends on what you have heard.

 

I can't say much about the PC release, but it appears console versions have been delayed again.

 

Edit: Now I really want to replay the game...

I don't know much on TES lore or history, but my first TES game was Morrowind, which I bought out on a limb just because I wanted an RPG. It was my first RPG ever. I purchased the Game of the Year edition disc which included the expansions "Bloodmoon" and "Tribunal" and fell in love.

 

I played it for hours on end, though tbh, it was so long ago that I played it that I barely remember any events of the storyline. I loved the environment, however. What I do remember is playing the game so much that I got bored and went into the console and edited a lot of stuff and killed everyone on the game map. Whoops.

 

When Oblivion was released I was like "omg yes", but I played it for all of 15 minutes and utterly hated it. Hated the style, the environment, everything. Never picked it up again.

 

Now Skyrim? I could talk about Skyrim all day long <3

Though most of my time playing Skyrim is doing really dumb things that I find funny..I'll have to tell those stories another time.

 

As for the next game, I really hope they do a kind of rewind thing and focus on Dwemer lore and history. I would really love to look into that culture.

The funniest thing that ever happened to me on Skyrim was making Sven my follower then trying to pickpocket his mother. She caught me at it, attacked me and then was beheaded by her own son.

 

Cicero would approve.

Is ESO really that bad as I am hearing?

A bit of a late response here, but no. I personally love it, and it's got a great community who's really into it too (otherwise they wouldn't be paying to play, heh).

 

 

Anyway, I've recently purchased Battlespire and Redguard, the rare-ish two side games. I haven't tried Redguard - it doesn't work with DOSBox so I'm going to need to try it on a virtual machine or something - but I've played a bit of Battlespire. It's weird and the controls take a lot of getting used to. The character creation's kinda cool though, it's based on a point system (so, if you say, remove the ability to use blunt weapons, you'd get points back that you can use on regenerating health or something like that.)

 

I also just built a gaming PC and absolutely love how the ES games look on it - even Oblivion, which my laptop ran quite well, looks better. And Skyrim and ESO.... well, I thought they were "good" on my laptop, but now I realize what I was missing before; it's a night-and-day difference.
