Good thing is, most mods have enough info in them that they will tell you what other mods you might need and what mods might cause conflicts.
    There are some that require Dragonborn and some that require all of them. Just have to read the fine print. I've been looking forward to Falskaar, but I still have like...hundreds of hours of base game to get through. Every night I make a goal to knock out some quests from my log and just end up with 20 new ones in their place.

    LOL YES! That has been me the past few weeks. I think I spent one evening just arranging the weapons and armor in my house, that way all my ingredients and components are neatly stacked...of course for some reason my daggers love to shimmy out of the closed display cases... =/

    But yeah, I try to stay immersive, but at the same time I just want to clear out my backlog of quests. I avoid talking to people outside of my quest objectives for this reason.

    When I first started playing, I was talking to everyone I saw because the world was so alive. Then every single person had a quest for me. I was astounded at how awesome that was. Fast forward a couple of days and I run from NPCs like they have the plague. I dread those times I step out of one of my homes in a city and a messenger stops me. I try to kill them so they won't give me more quests, but you can't lol. It's honestly not a bad thing, so I don't want to sound like I'm complaining. That game is like a nonstop A.D.D adventure.

    unless modded magic is kinda crap other than restoration and i think illusion theres not much point going for magic/spell stuff

    but you can use a sword and then magic in the other hand or you can favourite your weapon/spells to easily switch between them when needed

    but im not sure about a specifc "class" since any race can use any skill (except for racials obviously)

    midas magic is a good mod.

    I think theres other ones as well that expand upon the 'mage' archetype but I don't know the names off the top of my head.

    Without modding, the magic in Skyrim does not scale well at all. The good news is that there are a lot of magic mods that make magic viable, such as Mighty Magick or Forgotten Magic. They take different routes of re-balancing magic, so you have to read up on them and try them out to see if its your cup of tea.

    It is possible to play the game with unmodded magic. Its sort of tedious, though. To make even slightest dents on your enemies you will have to run around waiting for your mana to regenerate so that you can use powerfull enough spells. Later in the game when you get that master level lightning skill, you can shoot down dragons from the sky...

    If you are going to play unmodded magic character, you are going to need tons of extra mana. High elf is good for that. Never used it myself, though. They look ugly.


    Conjuration is your friend. Those atronarchs cost tons of mana, but they can usually block enemies from getting to you or actually kill them while you regenerate mana. I found it fun to summon those lightning atronarchs and then cast chain lightnings on them so it jumps directly to enemies without having to aim. Illusion is good, if you are using stealth. Many of the magic schools have something usefull for unmodded caster. I think there was magic absorb alteration or maybe restoration, mana regen, making yourself more durable, casts make no sound, ect.

    Unmodded casters just cant go about pwning everything like non casters and you have to pick abilities that are actually usefull and use them too. Melee can just go in and beat whatever buttons you want and mobs tend to die in one or two hits.

    Started off pretty boring but i hung in there and once i started getting some spells and my FUS RO DAH thing going on it is mighty fun to play. Though i feel kinda cheap doing the invisible chest trick in dawnguard (or dawnfall or something) but hey this game is huge a little extra loot isn't going to really make or break it.

    Played Skyrim long ago. If I buy the Legendary edition, is there a simple / easy way to improve it with add-ons? In the past I remember there were A LOT of addons, I was hoping you guys could suggest 2-3 big ones maybe or some add-on packs, if there are such things.
    I plan to play a caster btw.

    Well, installation of any mod is really straightforward with nexus mod manager at http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/, mods there can be sorted by type/popularity, sadly I'm not up to date with Skyrim mods, been playing Morrowind overhaul for quite some time.

  14. #7934
    Like i stated earlier in this thread i have lots of mods now and i downloaded them and then installed them with Nexus Mod Manager, however i feel like some mods are missing and some are not working. When i enter the mod configuration meny only 2 mods appear, iHud and SKYUI. Any way to check if all mods are working (i just started a save.) ?

  15. #7935
    What are the must have mods for skyrim? I dont wanna really stray off from the game though i wanna do the games story line.

    the games main story line is not the strength of the game. I mean you can approach it how you want but the best part of the game is just going off to do whatever you have a fancy to.

  17. #7937
    Such as? I am doing stuff like enchanting and blacksmithing.

    exploration, guild quests, all of the side quests, picking daises, spelunking, housekeeping, stealing, pillaging, murder

    there is quite a bit of freedom in the game

  19. #7939
    If you cant absolutely decide what to do, close your eyes and turn around randomly and maybe couple jumps, ect. Then go forward and explore what you encounter.

    is it just some atmoran belief or something? the world walls are old as the hills and written in draconic, so it's obvious they're made during and shortly after the first defeat of alduin.
    Its probably the Dragon-Priest Ahzidal. Ahzidal was the first well known Nord Enchanter. He learned a lot about Enchanting and magic in a act of revenge against a group of elves that burned down his home. After that, he became so lustful for all things magic that he became a Dragon Priest in search of more power. This may have brought madness, causing the other Priests to exile him to Solstheim.
