    Unique Armor: There is quite a lot of unique named armor in the game, but honestly it’s very indistinguishable from all the other armor. I have to say that nightingale is the only unique armor that looks anywhere near good, and the cape looks horrible while moving. Saviors Hide, a DAEDRIC ARTIFACT looks like leather armor, or could easily be mistaken for such. There’s no particle affects or anything and when you’re wearing it you have no pants on. Ebony Mail, another DAEDRIC ARTIFACT has the same or almost the same exact model as normal ebony armor, I mean come on….its a daedric artifact, id think it would have a special model or at least a few particle affects.

    Unique Weapons: This is where my biggest beef is at. I could give shit about the armor, but one of my favorite things to do is collect the unique weapons in the game. And seriously, there’s only a few I would ever consider unique. Dawnbreaker, Volendrung, and Rueful Axe, all DAEDRIC ARTIFACTS have pretty decent models, actually id say they are the best in the game. But seriously, they are daedric artifacts after all, I would expect them to be special. Mehrunes Razor, another daedric artifact has a unique skin but its extremely bland looking. No particle affect, and I would easily have passed it off as another steel/iron dagger if it had been left sitting on a table in a dungeon. Dragonbane, Nightingale Bow, Keening, and Nightingale Sword’s models are all pretty nice as well, but that’s where it ends. Im sorry but I don’t consider Ghostblade or anything like it to be “unique”. It’s the same exact model of Ancient Nord Sword with just a different reskin. In fact, most of the unique weapons are all the same model with different colored “enchants” on them, or even the same exact model with just a special name. And example: Windshear. Love the enchant on it, and after I upgrade it I think I may be using it more, but honestly? Its model is just horrible. Not sure if it was oblivion or morrowind but there was another sword with a name similar to Windshear, and it had a MUCH better model, with a nice particle affect and all. Even adding a particle affect to an existing model would have been better than just tacking on a special name to an already existing model.
    Not even talking about the models, why do they consider quest items that you have to turn in unique? Oh sure, if I can steal it back then fine, or kill the person and take it back. But when it completely disappears from the game like Haijiti’s Sword or Dravin’s Bow? They are quest items that sure, you can hold onto, but the minute you turn the quest in they are gone, and you can’t get them back.

    I’d be lying if I said I wish they hadn’t taken more models from oblivion and even a few from morrowind when they picked unique weapon models.
    I must say again, I love the game, but this was one of the things I was truly disappointed with.

    Also.....is anyone else having problems with Arniels Endeavor? I put the warped gem into the conveter or w/e its called and use the spell he teaches you, but nothing happens. And the quest log is bugging out and telling me to return to him but when i return to him i cant even talk with him.
    Actually I see it as a bonus that there are no particle effects. I like the low fantasy setting much more than the WoW style. In other words magic exists but only a select few can use it or get their hands on magic artifacts. I mean in Skyrim all armor actually looks good, even hide and iron. No particle effects is a huge plus for me. I absolutely hated that enchanted armor used to glow in Morrowind.

    But if you really want that, whats stopping you from getting a mod? I know I'd get a mod if they did have flashy lightshows going on to remove them

    Cant, im on console. And it doesnt even have to be particle affects, id prefer it wasnt like you said. But for the unique items it would have been nice to see a different model every now and then....instead of Ancient Nord Sword....over....and over.....and over........AND OVER....again.

    I prefer making and upgrading ebony bows, then selling them to thieves guild fences for making money. For the price of 4 ebony bars I can make like 2k gold with my smithing set equipped. Making those in bulk, you get gold fast. Though my way requires that you already be high level, as you need a consistent supply of ebony bars, and the only quick way to get massive amount is via buying them.
    If Goku's power level increases at the same rate till the end of DBGT as it does till the end of the Frieza saga, as a SS4 Goku would have a PL of roughly 939 Quinoctogintillion. For reference that is a 260 digit number. A PL of 14,600 is required to destroy an earth sized planet. There are about 2 nonillion earths worth of mass in the universe. That means SS4 Goku can destroy the universe about 32 Octosexagintillion times over. There's a reason they made Goku a god at the end of GT.

    Easy way to get ebony if your a lower level, go to the orc strong hold in the far east, the one nearest Windhelm...forget the name. In their mine you can mine 30+ ebony ore.

    I know, but 30 isn't very much, and it takes a LONG time for veins of ore to respawn. I probably went through 500 pieces of ebony ore just from making ebony bows and selling them to level speech.

    Why does Destruction take sooo damn long to skill up compared to other skills? I have only Alchemy and Destruction left and every other skill is at 100. So if I cast "Flames" it takes ages to gain a lvl (57 atm). I have nice magica and 300% reg, but it takes literally forever although I can basically just cast flames all the time (Master).

    What am I missing? Is there some spell that gains you more and faster xp?

    Edit: I know that I need to be in combat for it to work

    I used the expert level spell wall of storms, along with 4 -25% destruction spell cost items that I enchanted myself. I then shot Shadowmere with that. It went extremely quickly, around 10 minutes if I recall.

    No problem. My heart goes out to you for the alchemy grind though. That takes forever. The only tip I can give for that is that regenerate magicka potions seemed to give a little more experience.

    Yeah this will indeed be a grind because i´m only lvl 30 or so (never cared) well I will look into that when destro is at 100

    Edit: I will prolly go with invisibility potions! As Chaurus eggs and moth wings are easy to come by. On http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/A..._Tips#Leveling it says that:

    "The most expensive single effects are invisibility, paralyze, slow, and the regenerate types (health, stamina, magicka). These are two to three times more effective than other potions when giving skill points. Since the effect costs are additive, a potion with more effects may have higher cost than a potion with one of these high value effects. Hanging Moss + Bear Claws, Dwarven Oil + Salt Pile, and Vampire Dust + Luna Moth Wing are the best cost/reagent combinations."

    Just reached level 10. Loving the game. It started slow. But after level 4 and especially getting the shout training and become a trusted member of the companions (you know what I mean ), the game has just become too amazing. I also got the hang of the professions etc.

    Still haven't join any side in the civil war. I went to Windhelm and saw Ulfric and his army. It was pretty impressive, the talk, the voice acting, the city. Thought about joining them but it didn't feel right. Thought I would join the Empire on my warrior (playing warrior right now), and join Stormcloaks on another character for different kind of story.

    That being said, I'm enjoying the whole civil war thing much more then the dragons storyline so far. The story is immense. It took me sometime to get used to it (I didn't know the Imperial supported the Empire, who Ulfric was, Stormcloaks etc). and still need to learn a lot.

    Can anyone tell me the highest level a player can get and if it is possible to get every single talent. If yes, how. Please let me know.

    Nice to see that you enjoy the game! The max. lvl is 81 and you can´t get every perk, you can get a lot but not all tho (80 to be exact). I like the civil war storyline much more than the main story! The main story just does not feel epic and in depth enough for my taste

    The highest possible level is 81, I believe, which requires you to get every skill (One-handed, Destruction, Alchemy etc.) to 100 through training. Doing so gives you 80 perks, or talents, which is about a third (I think?) of the total. So no, you can't get every single talent.

    You ask for more? Then come, traveler, to the Whispering Deep, where only the mad walk.

    Skyrim got patched today on Steam and LAA (Large Adress Aware) or Skyrim 4GB Loader shouldn't be required anymore to run the game smoothly, it was build in the game with the patch. It also fixed the resistance ratings and dragons flying backwards I think, among other stuff.

    [Skyrim] Any way of quick switching from 1H+shield to spell+shield?

    Hey,

    I know of the favorite list, and the quick selections (1-9). They do not, however, work the way I'd like. What I want on my "paladin" is to switch from shield+weapon to shield+spell, so that my left hand retains my shield at all times, and my right hand switches between a weapon and a spell.

    To me it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever to put away your shield when you're casting a healing spell in the middle of combat. Obviously I want to keep the shield, and use the spell in my weapon hand.

    If I have shield+weapon, and choose the spell with a quick selection, I end up with spell+weapon. Then I'd have to quick select the spell again to have dual casting, and then select the shield to get to shield+spell. Talk about an asinine system.

    I tried the extended hotkeys which give me 40 "configurable" (yeah, from the .ini, not in game) hotkeys, but it doesn't seem to work either.

    Does anyone know of a mod that allows us to switch from shield+weapon to shield+spell with one quick key, or am I doing something wrong here?
    've is short for have. C/Sh/Would've or c/sh/would have. Not c/sh/would of.

    Hey All...So I’ve decided to pick up Skyrim since I am really fascinated by the entire game and the reviews that I’ve read.

    Let me start of by saying that I have no experience with the Elder Scrolls Series. Skyrim will be my first. Ever since being exposed to the LOTR books and films I’ve had a soft spot for elves. Even in WoW, when I played the game, I created night elves and blood elves. I love using a bow.

    I am currently deciding between a High Elf, Dark Elf, Wood Elf and Nords. What would be a good race to start with in the game?

    Any race is good, just depends on what you want to look like. Personally, after you reach a certain level the powers of each race become slightly useless, though the 50% frost resist with Nord and 50% first resist with Dark Elf are both good. The high elves start with extra mana and have the power to regen mana quickly for a short time, very good for mages or battlemages who wish to focus more on weapons. Not sure about wood elves, they start with better stats in things for thieves, but their command animal power is (i feel) kind of useless.
