    Or worse, I lost six hours of gametime in skyrim because the Jarl of Whiterun suddenly decided he hated me and would attack me on sight. I even paid my bounty and everything. He would not stop attacking me. Sheathing my weapon didn't even calm him down.

    Ever since that, I save rather often.

    Considering I've gotten over 200 hours of playtime out of it, I would say that it is definitely worth the price (especially if it drops in a Steam sale (got mine 60% off)) and I would totally recommend it. It's so damn immersive, it builds one of those worlds that you start to miss running around in if you take too long of a break away from the game before completing a decent chunk of it.
    Get it for PC, though, not consoles. The ability to mod the PC version is invaluable and adds to the fun (as well as cleaning up some pretty bad but bearable bugs).

    Tried this one but for some reason it keeps closing my game (not crashing) because I don't have a compatible version of SKSE since I have the latest one...

    Also, playing a sneak character with SkyRE freaking sucks. But I've made the most of it.

    For some reason I can't stand playing anything but a sneak archer in this game. I've made like 6 characters and every one of them starts out as something unique but ends up becoming sneak/archer by level 15 or so. Like, I made a mage character who was supposed to be focused on destruction (on the PS3); ended up going conjuration instead and focused exclusively on using my bound bow while sneaking everywhere.

    I've been using cheatzorz to play other builds but I can't with SkyRE since I can't reset perks/have them refunded. That potion of respec you get with SkyRE is a bunch of bull.
    LMAO, I'm the exact same way! All of my characters inevitably become sneak archers. It's just hands down the most effective way to play this game. I haven't noticed a whole lot of a difficulty increase using SkyRE, what exactly makes it harder? Yes, SkyRE does have its issues, but considering how much of the game it changes, that's to be expected.

    Skyrim is one of the best games ever made. And that's IT.

    Honestly, I'm just really REALLY bad at this game's combat. I suck at moving away during enemy power attacks and stuff. I suck at strategizing on dragon fights, or backing out of a fight against unbeatable opponents at lower levels (like guards). That's why I know I can't do the "Dead is dead" thing for this game.

    I realized that there's something really obnoxious about Serana. I remember it bugged me during the first play through as well but now that I'm doing it again it stands out more. It's the fact that even after she finishes are dialogue she continues her "speech" motions with the hands flailing and all. It's like watching a dubbed movie and it's annoying.

    It also sucks feeling like you're not a "true" dragonborn just because you aren't playing a nord and/or warrior archetype. I feel funky playing through the main storyline as a khajit master thief guildmaster.

    Eh, I've had equal success using melee/magic builds. Also had some success with pure magic builds, but those tended to drift towards a melee mix after a while as well.

    Yeah the save I play the most is a Ork Warrior that dualwields Daedric Maces and is sporting Daedric Armor. He´s also a Vampire Lord and to be honest I crush everything. I don´t need to be in stealth or give a fuck about Legendary dragons.

    1. Flying Dragons are np even as a non archer because of Dragonrend
    2. Frost Dragons are funny because as a vampire you are almost immune to frost dmg anyway
    3. Fire DMG and the sun is a bit problematic but I have a lot of +regen and fire resi gear and that makes up for that weakness.
    4. Having 2300 armor without shield is kinda OP
    5. Doing 1430 DMG with maces that ignore 75% of the enemy armor is absolutely OP.

    I am still amazed how easy you can make your char a basically unstoppable god without changing any game-files. Only things I used are smithing potions, enchanting potions, +alchemy and +smithing enchants

    About point number 4, the armor cap is 567. +1/6 if using SkyRe. 2300 armor isn't op because you have over 1500 armor you don't need.

    Does anyone know how to solve a really annoying bug? And yes, I already Googled it and tried most of the solutions. It's flickering water and it's very noticeable and BAD especially with smaller bonds, like near Morthal. Only way I can solve it so far is turning V-sync off but then I get over 60 fps which causes a number of other problems that are even worse, like junk flying around at random and animals rising to the sky or just dropping dead for no reason. (turning on vsync from skyrim settings or nvidia settings doesnt make a difference).

    Im using 2 GTX 680s if it matters.

    Limit fps to 60 using this or something else?

    So the potion of respec is STILL not refunding perks, just taking them away.

    And even though the "Dragon Soul Absorbed" screen comes up, when I try to unlock a shout it says I have no dragon souls.

    Y u do dis to me SkyRE?

    Also a question, does the crossbow enhancements in the marksman tree require the smithing perks? So do I need steel smithing to be able to make a lightweight construction crossbow?

    I am a little further from the point where you kill a dragon and get your first shout. So far I really don't know what you guys find in this game. Action is almost absent, combat is clunky and poorly handled, physics is lame(you can climb a mountain on food or on horse). It's so lame that you can't move on stairs while trying to climb the highest mountain(can't remember the name) and voice acting is oh god...every nord has same voice . All I do, so far, is walking and walking and walking and walking. Should I keep playing because I really like combat but as far as I see there is a huge lack.

    Sadly this game isn't for you if no one told you that already. Think you are better off playing WoW trolling Trade Chat.

    Download W.A.T.ER. It fixes the water bug and makes it look prettier at no FPS cost.
    Just follow the instruction in that link and you'll be good to go in minutes.

    Combat is only one part of the game. At its core Skyrim and the other TES games are about exploration and getting immersed in the world they create.

    A better handled combat would be appreciated tho.

    Already did.. it didn't fix it completely but it sure is a lot better now. The ripples when I stand in shallow water are still bugged and just flash between 2 pictures but at least it's playable now and looks fine for the most part. Oh and all the FPS limiters don't work, I tried a few, still the same thing. Only way I can completely fix it is taking off the vertical sync. But whatever, I guess I can put up with the occasional buggy ripple. It's not like I spend most of the game threading through shallow water anyway.

    Oh and by the way, I just love this game.. now. I bought it when it was released and it was kinda boring then. It looked nice and all but being killed by every ruffian at the start and then suddenly being like god with higher sneak, one shotting everything with a bow ruined it for me so I didn't even finish it then and didnt touch it for a year. Now I've modded the heck out of it, slowed down leveling (combat skills add more, non-combat add very little for level exp), use food, water etc. needs mod, so I cant just wait around and get infinite gold from sitting in alchemy shop and making pots. and a number of other mods and it's just so much fun now.

    Do you use SLI (2x Graphic cards)by any chance? That flickering/Flash sounds very familiar, and are more or less exclusive to SLI machines.

    I never stop being amazed by how well Skyrim is optimized. My PC has pretty good specs all around...except the video card. A silly nvidia 240gts that can barely run Deus Ex: Human Revolution on medium and can't even run WoW on high settings. And then I go and run Skyrim on high settings with a flipping ENB at 60 fps. It's mind boggling.

    Yea, I do, 2 GTX 680s. Anything I can do to fix it? And I'd rather not disable SLI cause Im using HD textures mods so it wouldn't run very well without it.
