    Is a Archer build viable ?

    What do you do when the bandits come running at you? I only played mage so far, and when the enemies rush me I can still throw some fireballs while running.
    But with the archer it`s very difficult...

    I will check Curse.

    so far I am but level 6 but I did not find any places that I could mine for metals. I have bought a pickaxe in the first village though.
    Right outside of Markarth, there is a mine that is Lush with Gold, although there are forsword infested in it, once you kill them, the amount of gold that is in that place should give you about 40 bars.

    If they come running at you, you could run away, block them back with the Bow, or use your Thu'um to push them away.

    Basically how it goes is early game magic is faceroll at the beginning and the most difficult at the end. Melee is pretty much in the middle both early and late game, and Archery is hard in the beginning and completely faceroll at the end. Just try your best to get a few stealth kills in before they spot you, and run if they overwhelm you.

    Pretty much. I will also add that archery is about using the environment to your advantage. Many many times I would kill some dude in stealth, his partner would search for me and die in some dwemer trap. Or get hit by a log.

    And the tiny fraction for whom heroic raids are currently well tuned? Too bad,so sad! With the arterial bleed of subs the fastest it's ever been, the vanity development that gives you guys your own content is no longer supportable.

    Anyone have any cool skyrim builds? If your build uses a mod too, like Deadly dragons or Skyre, that'd also work.

    So far, I've played builds that quite strongly resemble sneak archer, spellsword, conjure/destruction mage, paladin, 2 handed barbarian and a sneak thief.

    Personally im a rogue archer, using illusion magic and shifting into a vampire lord If im not going to be able to assassinate each target.

    Im making a new character soon using a level uncap mod so that I can level endlessly only capping once I have all skills at 100 and all perks.

    Archer is Totally Viable. Try to focus on Sneak attacks, when spotted run away/slip into the shadows. Use arrows as a distraction to break camps. Crossbow makes more noise than a bow but is base slightly stronger.

    But Yeah Archer, I love the Archer playstyle... did it in oblivion too.

    Only thing that sucks about them is forced third person. Otherwise, I use him often.

    I found that my regular character was much better, unlike the werewolf ...

    Still no word on how to get http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/18997 to work. I download it using NMM but the download fails at ~95% every time. I have SKSE and Monster Mod version 8 and REALLY want to enjoy this mod.

    Also: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfile...s/?id=80879735 + http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfile...74&searchtext= = Grade A Badass.

    No problem, It's always great to hear from authors of mods

    I've recently begun playing around with the SCK trying to get a understanding of things.

    I am a little late to the party, but I am starting to think this game is overrated.. I got bored within 2 days, I think I am level 7ish. I did the magic quests and a few thieves guild quests and it just seems like too much work.. my character feels weak too.
    Free-To-Play is the future.

    Of course your character feels weak, he's level 7...

    I didn't like the game that much to begin with, the main story is god awful to best honest. Never play it. But there's so much to do in the game, that's what fun to me. Sure, it's mostly dungeon crawling but the quests are interesting enough to keep me playing.

    The game is DEFINITELY overrated though. People are already putting it on "best game of all time" pedestals and other nonsense. I personally liked Morrowind and Oblivion more.

    Agreed, It's a good game but I won't say its best game of the year let alone all time worthy. The only reason I really continue to play is because I love archery/spell casting and find it fun in skyrim and the mods keep things new/fresh.
