    sky-re with 4 followers on expert + deadly dragons with 500% more hp/150% more melee and breath damage is what i've found to be just right

    i get my ass kicked if i fuck up, but i can still play a sword and board character and every dragon fight (as long as you're not using the broken marked for death, unofficial patch and skyre both fix it now) lasts a while

    when the stars align and you spawn 4 dragons, it's pretty fucking intense, took me 2 hours to kill them. fight took place from riverwood up past the tower near the barrow and ended up by the lake

    and if any of you are modders, learn to clean your mods with tes5edit. my mod list is full of the more popular/useful mods and i swear they're nearly all dirty. if each guy cleans his mod, it will be done better (you know exactly what you meant to do to your mod in the first place) and it's not easy cleaning 200 mods anyway

    people are usually surprised how easy it is to do

    I'm a little annoyed that the Wayfarer skill levels up just from walking around. It's inflating my level gains some... I'm also a little weirded out that unlocking a door with a key levels Fingersmith.
    you can use skyrim uncapper to tune all that and it looks complicated at first, but it's not

    thing is, your level mans jack shit anyway. 1-20 will go fast, 20-100 won't. world is leveling up around you and if anything, it makes the game a bit tougher if you cheese it to level and don't have the offensive ability to actually kill things around you.

    i honestly wouldn't even bother with adjusting it, it doesn't really affect you

    I just started with SkyRE! I'm gonna test the waters before I plunge in.

    Playing a Paladin, I had to switch do adept until lv 20. Then I got Critical Charge, respite, that fire damage aura, with fire weapon enhancement and Yol Tor Shuul. Once you get your shit together, it gets a lot easier.
    Edit: I'd like to add that due to the sneak changes, walking through a dungeon in heavy armor is pretty much throwing shit at the fan. You're gonna see the red dots showing up on your compass and go "oh fuck" so many times.

    So I've been playing on Master this whole time actually.

    I just want a good dive roll ability to make archery combat more interesting.

    I think you mean Morrowind?

    i'm kinda hoping corprus is brought up somehow. my morrowind lore is sketchy at best, but since there are ash creatures and ascended i would think corprus would be a danger we have to face.

    well at least not any plane of Oblivion we have bean before, it is definatley not the Shivering Isles, the hunting grounds, the soul cairn or the deadlands (Plane from TES:4) nor is it Malacaths realm or a few others so...there is a chance it could be a daedric plane of Oblivion but I kinda doubt it..

    it's supposedly hermaeus mora's apocrypha. which is probably why all of those stones looked kind of like books. either way, flaks is right. we are going back to oblivion in a sense. just a different plane lol.

    The screenshot with that cthulhu-like daedra is named "seeker" so yes, it will be Apocrypha.

    What are those screenshots from?

    Will I be able to get it without having Dawnguard?

    In theory, yes. Unless there is some specific thing in Dragonborn that is reliant on Dawngaurd, thought that is unlikely as DLC should be compartmental and only require assets from the main files.

    I've personally capped Skyrim at 70 fps with Nvidia inspector, haven't noticed any issues after about 10 hours of playing. I haven't tried higher caps yet as I like having a consistent framerate, and I often drop only slightly below 70.

    I think so. It adds a considerable amount of interesting content that meshes well with the rest of the game.

    It was worth it at $20.

    Dawnguard was pretty damn awesome up until the anti-climactic ending.

    I think the dawnguard dlc has one of the best story quests in the game, as well as a bunch of changes to the werewolf and vampire sub-races. Defiantly worth it IMO, and Oh look steam has it on sale of 50% off. >.> <.<
