    Wow, what the hell, probably late on this but the necromage perk works on yourself if you're a vampire.

    Suddenly a reason to get vampirism.

    Edited:



    Soemtimes NPCs increase in size for some reason. There's that hags cure woman in markarth and she's a breton, but sometimes when I walk into the shop she's as tall as a nord woman.
    Reminds me of how I have a follower mod that gives one follower a constant aura that constantly heals allied undead. It applied to you if you were a vampire.

    I posted a picture like this a while ago also, the kids on skyrim must be on growth hormones or something, probably in the milk.

    a vampire with the body of an 8-year old is the same height as an adult?
    Most kids in the game are like that. Alvor's daughter in Riverwood was also the same height as me.

    Anyone know the console command to make something unowned? Doesn't make sense that I can't sleep in the bed of someone I murdered who lives alone in the woods.

    I hope we get crossbows, bolts and (if in) spears of each material, incluiding dragonbone (and arrows of that one too). And the ability to forge and improve them.

    Kinda sucks how dragonbone armor is worst than daedric, considering how you have to be level 100 to get dragonbone. I can see why they would make daedric better, though. Both daedra hearts and ebony ingots are fairly rare and I often find myself carrying too many dragonbones and scale as compared to too many daedra hearts and ebony ingots. If anything you should unlock dragonbone smithing before daedric smithing.

    According to the lore, nothing is stronger than Daedric, IIRC. Plus, Dragon is more accessible, and the difference ends up not mattering much anyway.

    Also, Dragon Smithing is the ultimate light armor perk as well. I'd personally place it as only requiring Advanced Armors (and that one only needing Steel Smithing, or a Steel retooled that also enables Leather, and boost the improvements of Iron and Hide).

    I don't really see why having a bow or crossbow made of a particular material would help anything in real life. like, I get that you want it to be fine-tuned so it's more effective at firing arrows, but couldn't you just get a competent smith to make it out of regular steel and wood? the arrows I understand, so they're sharper and such, but why would the bow being made of anything else affect it?

    I get that there's meant to be variation, but if there were any sense it'd be different kinds of bows made from the same things, but arrows made from better materials.

    Edited:

    I mean unless you intend to be using your bow as a club or something the material itself shouldn't really come into it

    Really? Because when I fight Daedra in Skyrim they seem about as easy as a Bandit Chief on Expert with PISE and Duel installed.

    there's probably a difference between what they wear and the armor you get, which makes sense when you think about it, since you'd need a load of Daedra hearts to make the armour so the Daedra wearing it would have to be important enough to have others sacrifce themselves for him, which is probably why high-level Daedra are more durable.

    The armor you wear and the armor Daedra wear are identical so that's probably not the case.

    Except they aren't. Dremona weapons and Daedric weapons were nowhere close to being the same in Oblivion, while we are at it.

    I would imagine that they must have some inferior form of Ebony in the realms of Oblivion, I mean wasn't true Ebony only found on Nirn or something?

    No. The Dremora sword has a lower damage value, is worth way less, and breaks much faster.

    Yeah, but the mechanics are completely different. I think it's just the Dremora ones are made from cheaper materials so they can be mass produced for the armies.

    Notice the difference in strength. The daedric weapons are almost four times as powerful and are almost six times as durable. It's pretty much agreed upon that dremora tiered items are different from Daedric. Daedric items are a bitch to make. You've got to have ebony and some daedra. The crafting of the armor varies from game to game a bit if I remember correctly. However, whenever Daedric items are crafted it involves great pain for the daedra used during the process.

    I forget who, but I want to either say a high elf in Morrowind or Oblivion flat out refused to use Daedric armor/weapons because he could feel the pain of the daedra when wearing/wielding it. I'm not exactly sure what people agreed Dremora items to be. I'm thinking it was either just made from ebony in whatever realm of oblivion they're in or it's an extension of themselves in some sort of spirity summony metaphysical way.

    The latter makes more sense in Skyrim since you can't loot their armor. Anyways, fact of the matter is that dremora items are way inferior to daedric.

    I feel like I'm going to be disappointed with Dawnguard. Not because it's going to be bad, I think it will be well made. I just feel like Skyrim pushed me towards an edge that I would plunge into during the next DLC. I want things like the Kings moot and the next Great War to start, instead we're going to do some random quest that hasn't been talked about at all instead of the great hole Skyrim leaves.

    Its only useful for assassins and mages. Sneaking bonus, Illusion bonus, some gimmicky greater powers. Obviously sneak/illusion is good for assassins, likewise you become immune to disease and poison.

    It's useful for mages (with restoration experience) because it classifies you as undead, which coincides with the necromage perk (bonus spell magnitude for undead)... meaning you can cast retardedly powerful spells on yourself if you're a vampire.

    The Necromage + Vampire combo also affects all on-self enchantments.

    I'm doing one right now, you'll have some nice illusion benefits if you like watching people kill each other. The sneaking bonus is nice aswell, although I hardly use any of the powers you get.

    And don't worry about everyone hating you, you can just cast calm on everything. I think they'll make them non-agressive in the dawnguard dlc though.

    Oh god, of course the DLC adds a bunch of neat Werewolf stuff including an awesome looking skill tree. Shame I stopped playing my werewolf character a while ago, werewolves are awesome :(

    And there's no way he'd be compatable with a current playthrough, because I'm using some really outdated mods for him.

    I guess my next best option would be to start on my hunter character, and make him a werewolf by the time he gets to level 10

    So I've got that dark nights and dungeons mod on, and I'm taking a stole through the woods at night to test it out. See this arch sticking up out of the ground and I go over to investigate it. A spriggan peals its self off of the one if the inside walls. Scariest fucking thing ever.
