Well, in morrowind it was really fucking easy to overpower your character because there were so many skills, so you were getting +5 stat gains all over the fucking place and could get 100 in everything by level 30.
They could've adjusted for that with a cap on a stat for each level or something. I just feel somewhat limited in character creation. Daggerfall had abilities for almost everything. It wouldn't have been very difficult to add more even if they were "unneeded" skills.

so yea, another idiot question here.

How do you fast forward the time without a bed?
You hit T (on PC obviously) to wait around. It isn't sleeping but it will pass the time.

tim you clearly have no idea who That Man is and therefore have no frame of reference

you need look no further than my signature to see exactly why he calls the shots around here

timrpgland Apr 19th, 2006 04:56 PM

I stand corrected.

Emu Apr 19th, 2006 05:00 PM

We've got a pecking order around here

timrpgland Apr 19th, 2006 05:13 PM

I've done further research. That Man is the greatest, bestest, coolest and most awesomest man around. I can only hope to be as cool as that man. I will continue to hope and hope all day long but I can't achieve that kind of greatness. :(

guys i think that man needs a title whut whut

ArrowX Apr 19th, 2006 09:13 PM

Why does he have such a great title :( Mine just adds Target lock to the weapons ot textual self esteem killery.

That Man Apr 19th, 2006 09:24 PM

That was your choice.

ArrowX Apr 19th, 2006 10:13 PM

That man should shut his trap about that wich he understands not.

Something else that happened with the same guy :<

I have a Powercolor Radeon x800 GT, but you can get way better cards than that now. This one has like half the shaders of a normal x800 ;<

Zomboid Apr 20th, 2006 04:48 PM

:lol man I love the videos for oblivion that people release. Anyone see the ones where they kill that adoring fan guy?

the_dudefather Apr 20th, 2006 04:57 PM

do all the important npcs mearly stunned when you kill them? tried using my "go nuts for 60 so the guards whoop your ass" on one or two and got this was the effect.

propobly better in the long run as i might need them for quests

Supafly345 Apr 20th, 2006 08:08 PM

The people who get knocked out are the people that you need to finish the main quests (giulds, oblivion story, maybe more). But you can fail the side quests by killing someone you shouldn't have, but usually it just has a different outcome.

Chojin Apr 20th, 2006 10:22 PM

I didn't know Baurus could die during the quest where you get the 4th mythic dawn book ;< With my mods on it was way too hard to beat any of those fucks there, so i just stole the book off of the guy and then hauled ass out of there. I'LL NEVER KNOW IF BAURUS MADE IT ;_;

Ninjavenom Apr 21st, 2006 05:18 PM

Mine died during the quest where you follow him to the basement. I kinda... burned him alive :(

kahljorn Apr 21st, 2006 05:43 PM

I always feel so guilty when somebody dies during a quest that I restart ;(

You should see me in PVP games. Especially the ones wherein which you die you don't have a character anymore.

Tropical Apr 21st, 2006 06:50 PM

I got the Umbra Sword, which is supposedly the most powerful weapon in the game.

Weightless, 17DMG, Enchantment: Soul Trap 120 secs.

Getting was supposed to be fucking hard untill you're way late into the game. But there was a trick to buy shit loads of potions. Hit the person with the sword and fucking run a few miles into Talos District. The guards will kill her eventually and you can pick up the sword. (She kills like 14 guards before she croaks)

But, god damn i found out it's overrated. The upkeep is expensive as fuck. Unless you're a journeyman at Armory the thing is fucking expensive to fix at a low level.

So seriously, save that shit for later.

the_dudefather Apr 21st, 2006 07:07 PM

anyone else get that hideous npc stuck between one area and the next, as if existing between worlds and not 'in' the game?

kahljorn Apr 21st, 2006 07:52 PM

yea that happened to me at the sigil keeper at the first oblivion gateway thing ;(

ArrowX Apr 21st, 2006 07:59 PM

Has anyone else had Oblivion gates "spawn" around them? Theres this one video I saw a while back where a guy goes to one of the inns and then in the morning theres an oblivion gate like 30 metres into the trees that wasnt' there before.

I don't think I'm even an expert armorer yet, but that fucker is useful for levelling that skill. It's one of my 7 main skills so I'm constantly needing shit to repair and it was the best for that till I gave it to one of the daedric shrines. Apparently you can refuse to hand it over to the daedra but suddenly it weighs like 45. I didn't bother, got a mask as good as a daedric helm (plus a 20 or so boost to your personality), and just use firebrand instead :O

Yeah, I walked around and the sky just turned red, and it was there.

Chojin Apr 24th, 2006 05:00 PM

So, thanks to OOO, the following happened yesterday:

Chojin says:
i was walking down the road and I saw a spriggan
SEVEN says:
oh no
Chojin says:
i had my trusty mountain cat with me
Chojin says:
so i yelled ATTACK and also summoned a flame elemental
Chojin says:
when the spriggan saw me she summoned a bear
Chojin says:
in the middle of this another spriggan caught on and joined in and summoned another bear
Chojin says:
all the noise pissed off an army of bloody hand goblins, about 12 of them
Chojin says:
at about this time, some bandits tried to rob everyone
Chojin says:
and then the newspaper delivery boy tried to ride through and his horse was instantly murdered
Chojin says:
it was like world war 2
Chojin says:
oh and some other bears joined in

Chojin Apr 24th, 2006 05:40 PM

The Damp Moose Apr 24th, 2006 09:28 PM

So does anyone else have horrible framerates with this motherfucker?

I put all of the sliders on the lowest setting and I still get a clip show everytime I get hit with a fireball.

In addition to that I also did this video card tweak thing where I changed the number of pre-rendered frames from 3 to 0 which helped a little bit. Except now the game crashes every 15 minutes, which sucks harder.

It might have something to do with my having the minimum possible video card (Geforce 5700 FX).

So, anyone have any ideas? Or am I just screwed for another 6 months until I can get a better card?

kahljorn Apr 24th, 2006 10:12 PM

you're probably screwed ;(

Keep tweaking is my best suggestion.

The Damp Moose Apr 24th, 2006 10:15 PM

I'm not too familiar with, you know, screwing with things on my video card.

Am I running any sort of risk of melting it or otherwise fucking up something inside my computer?

kahljorn Apr 25th, 2006 12:10 AM

I didn't mean do anything to your videocard in particular i meant mess with in game settings. Those won't mess up your computer ;(

Try defragging and making sure you have more than 4 gbs of free space on your hard-drive.

kahljorn Apr 25th, 2006 04:51 PM

which mods are you using now, chojin? I'm considering installing a weapon mod.

Chojin Apr 25th, 2006 11:09 PM

Chase Camera Mod - Hard-locks 3rd person camera to be more playable
Vanity Camera Smoother - Makes the vanity pan less sensitive

Spell Ranks - Sorts spells by name first, then strength (Flare II, Frost III)

Perception - Adds a perception spell that you can use to gauge an NPC's relative level.

Oscuro's Oblivion Overhaul - Huge mod that changes the way Oblivion works in general, from spawn sizes to loot drops to difficulty, to new armors and effects.

the_dudefather Apr 26th, 2006 03:57 PM

the saddlebag and harvest patches sound good. lucky i still have my *ahem* legal version of oblivion for pc for mods and my xbox version for playing (runs a bit better)

kahljorn Apr 26th, 2006 10:58 PM

You don't need the legal version for mods ;O

Have you tried any of the weapon mods, chojin? LIke Kal's or 300 weapons? They are supposed to make it a little more dynamic so it doesn't feel like you're using the same weapon all the time.

Archduke Tips Apr 26th, 2006 11:55 PM

Your graphics card isn't the only thing that you need to think about for running this game. All your components have to work together well.... and I think the most neglected component that may seriously affect Oblivion performance is the sound card.

Without a good sound card, your CPU is going to have to do most of the work, and that will seriously slow down your performance.

Chojin Apr 27th, 2006 12:25 AM

I haven't, no. I don't even know what that is. :<

Saddlebags royally fucked me. I dumped a bunch of my shit onto the horse. Then, I couldn't ride it anymore, just use it for storage. So I mark it and try to summon it elsewhere. No dice. I go to a town and there's no message that the horse is in the stable, but he is anyway. Now I can only ride him, no inventory. No matter how many times I push that bastard off a cliff now, I'll never get all my loot back :<

kahljorn Apr 27th, 2006 02:11 AM

It modifies the weapons to make them more distinctive I guess; They adjusted the rates and damages to things like weight and reach to actual size in game. So they made the big hammers slower and lower reach but really strong; claymores faster, not as strong and have more reach than hammers, but still do alot more damage than regular swords or maces.

Was just curious if you had tried it out. I think I might try it out myself, just trying to decide which one.

Oblivion uses a huge number of shaders on everything. The FX series of cards are incapable of using more than a couple at once due to some architectual constraints. Could be that when you get hit by a fireball it creates a big heat hazy pixel shaded cloud which pushes your card too far.

kahljorn Apr 27th, 2006 03:46 PM

There's some mods out available for helping low end cards. Some of them just tweak settings, others might do things like turn off or simplify spell effects, however I saw one that was specifically for using higher settings on low end cards.

I'd reccomend searching the Mod Forum at www.elderscrolls.com or trying www.tessource.com maybe.

I might be wrong on the tessource url.
I had a low end card and ended up upgrading ;(

EisigerBiskuit Apr 30th, 2006 03:43 AM

Pyramid Head - Adds Pyramid Head armour set and a new quest.

/boner

Zomboid Apr 30th, 2006 05:01 AM

Can someone install that one and check it out? Screenshots too please :O

Supafly345 Apr 30th, 2006 04:11 PM

Hello? Is this thing on? SCREENSHOTS

the_dudefather Apr 30th, 2006 05:38 PM

im trying dag nabbit, there is a quest you gotta do before you get it

cant get past the seal of metatron :(

edit: found some screens, http://www.elderscrolls.com/forums/i...ic=409854&st=0

the_dudefather May 6th, 2006 04:24 PM

what kind of builds are you guys using?

this my my current one:

name: chekt
race: dark elf
sign: mage
class: shadowblade (custom)
-athletics
-blade
-alteration
-destruction
-illusion
-light armor
-sneak

i use a 10 second invisiblity spell to get multible 6x attack bonuses in fights against some enemies (ogres are great for this as they cant see you coming :)

havent had much luck playing as a warrior type character: any tips?

kahljorn May 6th, 2006 04:39 PM

Block then strafe behind them while hitting them as many times as possible. Get kal's weapon rebalance, it's extremely helpful for fighters.

I haven't played a stealth character yet, I have a woodelf prepared for it though.

the_dudefather May 6th, 2006 04:52 PM

pity im playing the 360 version :/

yeah i love stealth characters in this game, mostly crap in direct fight situations

had a lot of fun with a pure mage character (default mage class, high elf)

might adapt the battlemage class or something for a warrior character

executioneer May 6th, 2006 11:05 PM

i have a lv 35 orc "wanderer" (custom)
blade
light armor (maxed)
armorer
alchemy (maxed)
destruction
speechcraft
security

strength is maxed out, other stats range from mid-60s to mid-70s

i have got:
a glass longsword with a 20 electric damage enchant (from the runestone in the kvatch oblivion gate)
a glass bow that deals 14 pts of each type of elemental damage + drains speed by 21 for 2 seconds (custom enchant)
that apron of adroitness or w/e that is as good as elven armor plus gives +9 to agi/int,
a "necklace of swords" that i found in some vampire lair, that gives 33% reflect damage and +25 to sword skill

and a bunch of other CRAP

CaptainBubba May 18th, 2006 11:59 PM

This game is buttfuck easy. I'm primarilly a conjuror and so far I have been able to just summon a daedroth for every fight and go take a dump and wait for it to kill everything. Even if that failed I have like 10 blades that do 20 to 50 magic damage on hit, the arena champion light armor (Becoming arena champion took about 1 hour), and some wierd rings that are apparently worth about 5000g each, and 12,000g.

But its still really fun : (

Chojin May 19th, 2006 12:19 AM

The game is nowhere near that easy with OOO ;<

executioneer May 19th, 2006 12:37 AM

i kind of wish i could get JUST the creatures don't level with you bit from oscuros ;_;

and i know the "lite" one prob. lets you but i could not find a place where i could download it so again ;_;

Chojin May 19th, 2006 01:06 AM

come on willie it wasn't that hard

executioneer May 19th, 2006 01:56 AM

i guess the elderscrolls forum search does not like me or something cuz i tried it before and got nothing ;_;

Fathom Zero Jun 3rd, 2007 07:44 PM

I'm having a bit of touble trying to complete the quest to get the manor in Anvil.

I got both the skeletal hand and journal, got the dude from Imperial City to open the door, he took off afterward. I walk up to the skeleton, he talks, and it says I need to replace the hand. I figured I still had it in my inventory so I click on the bony dude. As it turns out, I don't have it and I don't think I sold it. That guy must've taken it when he ran off, so does anyone know where to find him after he runs away?

Supafly345 Jun 4th, 2007 08:38 AM

No, he doesn't take it. I don't think you can even pick up the hand until its time to use it. And you can't sell it. If you go back up to the urn and it is still missing, you are fucked.

Fathom Zero Jun 4th, 2007 01:20 PM

Fuck. Maybe I dropped it back in the tavern.

the_dudefather Jun 4th, 2007 07:48 PM

I still haven't completed this damn game, I like playing as stealthy characters but they keep getting too weak later in the game, I suck at levelling I guess, or I should exploit the system or something

executioneer Jun 4th, 2007 11:41 PM

the way its set up by default kind of penalizes you for picking main skills that you're actually gonna use :( and since the monsters level up with you, if you do it wrong they eventualaly get way too tough :( there are patches that change the way leveling works, but if you don't have the PC version that kind of doesn't help huh :/

Fathom Zero Jun 4th, 2007 11:51 PM

That's why you should pick the skills you use most as minor skills, that way you get the bonuses when you level up. HOWEVER, if you don't put them as the major skills, the ones left as majors won't go up enough for you to level and thus no bonuses. Balance is key, as I found out in the hard way.

Zomboid Jun 5th, 2007 01:28 AM

My stealthy khajiit is pretty tough. I just jump over people and rain arrows on em.

kahljorn Jun 5th, 2007 02:15 AM

I've always hated the elder scrolls leveling system. Good idea, but extremely poor implementation... that, and the extremely boring combat, is what makes me not play it. I do like archers and magic, though. Archers are really the only characters ive ever been able to play with for extended periods of time.
There's this new game out called Two Worlds that seems like it has an awesome archery system... gothic 3's looked kind of cool, too.

I liked that in elder scrolls three you could only get to like level 75 or something in your minor skills. Kind of helped with the balance, sort of not really.

the_dudefather Jun 5th, 2007 06:18 AM

what if say, I had blade, light armour and block as majors (ie stuff that will actually keep me alive), and the rest as unused randoms, then played as a stealthy character?

would that be a good balance?

Fathom Zero Jun 5th, 2007 10:09 AM

I'd say yeah.

Supafly345 Jun 6th, 2007 10:57 AM

My High Elf is devistating. I started him as a sorcerer, under the sign on whatever gives you a magic boost right? And then I trained him as a warrior, making sure to raise his endurance first, and making sure to level him at the exact right moment to maximise his stat gain. I haven't played the game since last july, but when I get back to him and finish him up, it'll be gruesome.

I had almost every warrior skill maxed when I last left it.

the_dudefather Jun 19th, 2007 07:45 PM

so far my new argonian warrior/thief thing is going ok, got the fighters guild and main quest done, will try and finish up the thief guild tomarrow, meaning I will have gotten all the achievements for the original game

given that I got most of the main quest lines done, its crazy that there are so many sub quests around the game, it feels like It would take months to finish them all, which I would be tempted to do (aybe heading to shivering isles first)
